Hanns-G HZ281HPB 27.5'' 3ms Full HD 1080P HDMI WideScreen LCD Monitor 400cd/m2  X-Contrast 15,000:1(800:1)Built-in Speakers
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Size and resolution. Bang for the buck. Excellent successor to the HG281. These are excellent monitors.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have a lot of experience with Hanns-G 28s. I'm a data analyst so all of my work requires that I see as many rows and columns as possible. 1920 x 1200 resolution matters to me. On a 22" screen the text is too small. 2-1/2 years ago I purchased two Hanns-G HG281s. Perfect. As for reliability, one of them lost a column of pixels after one year. No big deal, it's my email monitor. The other one just recently started having problems with the inverter board so I bought one of these new HZ281s to replace it. Perfect. I can have the HG repaired and keep it as a spare. This new HZ is a bit slimmer in all proportions and was a great replacement for my HG. Highly recommended.

AOC 2230FM Piano Black Finish 22
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Stylish appearance, excellent blacks and colors, digital media player. A lot of features for the money.

Cons: As noted by another reviewer there is a limitation in regards to USB or flash memory content in the DMP inputs. I haven't spent the time to determine if it's the number of files or number of bytes. Native resolution is 1680x1050 but the DMP still adds black bars to the sides of 1680x1050 images. 1920x1080 (16:9) images don't have this problem.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 5 of these to use as digital picture frames. Not the family photo stuff, I use them to display my digital art collection. 4 of them are mounted in an array on a custom bracket that I made. Each one displays the portfolio of a different artist. It makes for an impressive display in my foyer. Very high wife approval factor. Too bad the DMP USB won't accept a wireless dongle. I have to reload the SD cards whenever I want to change artists.

ASUS Eee Box EBXB202-BLK-X0023 Desktop PC Intel Atom N270 (1.60GHz) 1GB DDR2 80GB HDD Windows XP Home
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 5 eggs for general computing like internet, email, spreadsheets, word processing, music streaming, picture viewing, etc. Boots fast. No crapware. Small, quiet, and stays cool to the touch. More than enough computer for casual users.

Cons: 3 eggs for video streaming over the internet. It's too bad that Intel decided to pair the Atom with their GMA950 video processor. Will not play hi def streams from Hulu. Even standard def stutters a little. I believe the GMA950 will only share a maximum of 128mb of system memory.

Other Thoughts: I bought this in the hopes that it would be a media center extender on steroids. It's not a whole lot more expensive than the Linksys or similar extenders. I have a few more TVs that I want to outfit but I'll wait until they improve the video performance before I buy another. As Maxwell Smart would say, "missed by that much"
