This review is from: PLANAR 997-2797-00 PL1910M(997-2797-00) Black 19" 5ms LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1,000:1
Pros: Good picture, low power consumption, no dead pixels. Auto-tune worked fine to center the picture edge to edge, everything else looked good at the default settings. It has a 4:3 aspect ratio, so it looks better with "classic" software and video cards.
Personally I like the 4:3 ratio better anyway, you have to have a bigger wide screen to have the same readability.
Cons: I've only had it a few days, so I can't report on longevity.
Other Thoughts: The built in speakers are for basic business use while keeping the desk uncluttered. Don't expect them to be equivalent to a typical speaker set.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large size, fast, and quiet. Great IDE drive.
Cons: Nothing bad to say!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The GE Digital Series IT UPS0600ITSIT a high quality UPS with a sine wave output. It has output voltage regulation (buck or boost) without using battery power at all, which makes it much better when powered from a backup generator. There are two 12V batteries inside, so runtime is high. All this is why it costs twice as much as the typical stepped DC simulated simulated sine wave that switches to battery with every little change in voltage.
I've tested it by running it on battery until it shut off the computer and then powered itself down. VA, Watts, Power Factor, frequency was monitored with separate instrumentation. The advertised runtime was accurate, and it's silent. The front panel LED display for battery level, output load, on battery, etc. worked fine.
The software worked without bugs (I only used the Windows version, Linux is supported also). It can connect to a computer via a serial com port or USB, and it comes with both types of cables.
Cons: Although it's capable of hot swapping batteries, I'd advise against it unless you try it out first on the bench with all the covers removed and know exactly what you are doing.
Other Thoughts: The software has an analog gauge with digital readout interface for input/output voltage, battery percent, load percent, and internal temperature. The installer is only about 2mb, so the footprint is small. Without AC power, it will shutdown the computer on low battery, or after a selected run time.
Personally, I'm not real fond of analog gauge with digital readout interfaces, but it does the job.
