Pros: I picked up two of these monitors during a sale newegg had a while back. I'm not sure it's possible to beat build quality and color quality of these monitors for the price I got them at. I'm a programmer, so I don't necessarily use these monitors for graphic design or photography. I was immediately able to tell the difference, however, when watching movies, playing games, or even simply editing highlighted text. The 2560x1440 resolution, the accurate colors, and the brightness makes these monitors truly shine.
The bases also have a very strong grip to my desk, so they don't move around. The ability to turn the monitor into a portrait aspect ratio is *extremely* convenient as a programmer. I'll sometimes pull up large bodies of text, PDFs, or documentation in portrait mode.
Cons: Plugging in the USB to my computer causes the monitors to emit an somewhat audible high pitched sound when they're asleep. This sound normally wouldn't bother me, but it is burdensome when trying to sleep (they're in close proximity to my bed). My solution was simply to not use the USB ports on these monitors. That's okay though, as I bought these for their display quality rather than USB support.
Don't even try to use the touch controls in a dark room. It's a recipe for failure.
Other Thoughts: I'm using a 2013 Retina MacBook Pro 15" to drive these monitors. I'd recommend buying Mini Displayport to Displayport cables, as the cables are "small" and can run the monitors at full resolution. The monitors are also auto-detected by my computer when they're turned on, which is kind of nice. I didn't notice this behavior when using Mini DisplayPort to DVI converters.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: cirago BTA-3210 Micro Bluetooth Dongle USB 2.0 support Bluetooth 2.1
Pros: Works with the wii remote (unlike my last BT adapter.) Small size makes it great for my netbook's traveling case. Uses Toshiba's BT stack, not bluesoleil, which is a plus in my book. The best BT adapter I have ever owned.
Cons: Have to use pliers to get it out of my desktop due to its small size, although as said in the pros the small size is required for a netbook travel case.
Other Thoughts: The blinking light isn't that bad, although if it really annoys you duck tape can fix anything!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Huge, not glossy, HDMI. All cables other than HDMI included. Very secure stand.
Cons: Splendid is okay, but I think that HP's "QuickView" Technology is better.
Other Thoughts: One stuck pixel right in the middle :( Hopefully it will disappear. Reason for 4 stars. I will re-review if it does.READ FULL REVIEW
