Pros: Nice clear display, with no dead pixels. I put mine between a couple of older 19-inch monitors I had been using for a long time in a 3-monitor setup. The display on this one makes the image on the older 1280 x 1024 displays look muddy and sick.
Cons: None, as it turns out. At first, I thought that the monitor's tilt could not be adjusted, and I had objects under the front of the stand to prop it up. Later, I found that I just didn't try hard enough to adjust the tilt. I had to hold the stand down, and then push the top of the monitor back. As it turns out, it works just fine - I was just chicken to apply enough force. It wasn't really all that much force, as it turned out.
Other Thoughts: I bought mine for use at work, even though I am an employee. It was inexpensive enough that I could justify it to myself. It does really help. An engineering drawing that can't even be read on the older 19-inch monitors without a lot of zooming in can be seen very well on this monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ORICO 7-Port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Hub with 36W Power Adapter - VIA VL812 Controller - Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux Support - Full USB 2.0 Backwards Compatibility - Black (H9978-U3-US)
Pros: It looks good, and works well. For a powered hub, it is attractively priced. I am only using it for USB2, but I like the fact that, after an upgrade, I could use it for USB3.0. It is a powered hub, so it works for multiple devices that draw power from the USB connection. Since the AC adapter was a little on the large side, I feared that it was the older type that got warm even when it had no load. This was not the case, however, and the AC adapter runs cool, with no discernible temperature rise.
Cons: Has no mounting provisions to mount it to the side of a cabinet, the side of a computer case, or wherever - it just has rubber feet. No complaints - I knew this before I bought it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Men's Skagen Titanium Thin Mesh Band Watch 233XLTTN
Pros: It is a good-looking watch. The watch and its band really stand out. The watch looks really thin, and the band is quite unusual. The watch is comfortable, and keeps very good time. The band is very easy to adjust, unlike many metal bands. It is quite easy to put on the watch and take it back off again, once one has done it a few times.
Cons: The manual that comes with it mentions the seal around the stem needing replaced every few years.READ FULL REVIEW
