This review is from: Dell E2715H Black 27" 8ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1,000:1
Pros: PLS panel, 27" screen, reasonable price. No speaker on this monitor (No, I don't want speakers on my monitor). Screen settings are easily adjustable through four bottons at the lower-right corner of the monitor. Also I did not find any dead or bright pixel on the screen :)
Cons: No height adjustment (only tilt).
Other Thoughts: I replaced a 22" 1680 x 1050 (TN panel) monitor with this one. The larger screen area and corresponding font size provided the much needed relief to my strained eyes. I have considered several other brand name 27" 1920 x 1080 monitors prior to the purchase. Pretty much all of them at this price range are using either TN or VA panels. BTW, I do find the default brightness at 75% too bright for me. The preset mode for Muitimedia and a 50% brightness hit the spot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus for Mac 3TB 3.5" USB 3.0 Mac Storage - Desktop Model STCB3000900
Pros: 1. Got about 120MB/s on USB 3.0 transferring 2TB data at once.
2. Drive turns off automatically when the PC is turned off.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I am using this 3TB for Mac drive for 32-bit Windows XP. Interestingly, there is no need to install DiscWizard from Seagate to access the full capacity. The only thing that is necessary to install is Seagate's windows driver to allow the "for Mac" drives to work on windows (i.e., HFS4Win.exe from Seagate website). That's pretty convenient.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC BT-200 USB2.0 to IDE Cable With Power Adapter
Pros: Transfer Rate is about 34MB/S to 35MB/S based on my 4-year old 80GB hard drive
Cons: As the Newegg Product Review Guidelines suggest, "Prices and availability can change very quickly on the Newegg.com website."
Other Thoughts: Works well with hard drives and the transfer rate is pretty good relative to other USB-IDE external enclosures. If you have some spare drives around then this product should be a good toy for you.READ FULL REVIEW
