BenQ GW2450 Glossy Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: After 1 year of daily use, update to original review. I like the on light on the side, it's out of sight, just have to lean a little to see it. Now that I've finally learned how to calibrate it,
I like it even more. Type now very clear even when scrolling. Also, what a difference between 'TP' and 'IPS' style monitors!

Cons: Not really cons, more like observations
Came with VGA cord, but not DVI cord.
My local grade school uses VGA, not DVI.
They were glad to swap.
Default 'brightness' requires sunglasses! Turned way down.
Type was fuzzy, especially when scrolling, had to calibrate.

Other Thoughts: Had fuzzy type sometimes, got better by lowering contrast.
Totally eliminated, and now very clear, even when scrolling!

calibrate display>follow prompts to adjust and check the box for 'clear type'. Wow, what a difference! PS: Windows 7 Pro

BenQ GW2450 Glossy Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Only noticed because it was on an eblast sale, otherwise not in budget. One reviewer mentioned it was not a TN (twisted pixel style). Did not know that, thanks, so I bought it. Compared to my Dll ST24 inch it is WAY more crisp and vibrant!!!
I like that the power button/light is on the side, so I can't see it.
I like that the buttons have a solid feel/sound. No dead pixels.
Very nice packaging. Quite happy with this monitor, and I haven't even gotten around to installing the disc that it came with!
After adjusting a few times, I found I could (without looking) just lay my fingers tips on the adjustment buttons, and did not need to see them to adjust brightness. However, if thick fingers, maybe not.

Cons: Not really a con, but it is not quite plug n play. However, are any?
Text was not sharp, but setting Contrast up to 60 fixed that. Text is now very crisp even when scrolling.
Definitely turn down Brightness! I set in low 20's for low light, and in low 30's for a sunny day.
Con turned good: my local grade school uses VGA cables, and swapped me for a DVI.

Other Thoughts: Again, thanks to the reviewer who mentioned that this was not a TN panel style. I was completely ignorant of this whole deal. Thanks to all the reviewers, as I usually learn something new.
Somebody mentioned less than solid stand: Are your pieces pushed all the way together 'till you hear solid 'click'? Do you live on a boat?

Hario MSS-1B Mini Mill Slim Coffee Grinder

5 out of 5 eggs Happy Camper 03/21/2013

This review is from: Hario MSS-1B Mini Mill Slim Coffee Grinder

Pros: Has to be Ceramic for me, and they did a nice job on the Ceramic finish. Comfortable size and proportions make it easy to use.
I like a fine grind, and it does that quite nicely. At first glance, it seemed a little expensive, but it is less than a lot of the cheap box grinders with metal burrs, which I consider decoration at best.
Bottom line: IMO decent price for quality of product.

Cons: None, except for I waited 2 months for it to be on sale price, but not. I think I'm getting spoiled with newegg's e-blast deals!!!

CAUTION (not con): When I took it apart to wash before first use, I almost missed 2 little green washers that stayed in the base. They came out in the sink, and I could have missed them.

CAUTION: Do Not Overtighten grinder adjustment. Ceramic on Ceramic will chip one or both of the grinders.

Other Thoughts: Packaged for Asian market, but there is one page in Engrish. But hey, there's only about 12 parts. Main cautions are: Do Not Turn grinder when it is empty. Do Not put in dishwasher. Also, while Ceramic is hard and long lasting, it is also brittle, so suggest coffee only.

The clear plastic bottom looks like it holds enough to make 2 cups of coffee, but they would be pretty darn strong tasting cups! Takes me about 50 seconds to grind a rounded tablespoon. Enjoy.
