Pros: VA panel,
Easy to adjust
Cons: EASY to hurt
Not wall mountable.
Other Thoughts: I have had this for a little over 6 months and I liked it. I knew it was not wall mountable when I bought it and at the time I thought it wouldn't make a big difference.
After 6 months I had to lean it out to clean dust from around it so I leaned one corner and gently leaned it out on my hand. OH, OH I forgot it has no bezel around it so of course with a little pressure I cleaned it. Set it back up turn on computer now it is just lines I can see where it seems like it cracked. No physical damage at all screen doesn't show it unless it is on.
So a word to the wise if you buy this type of monitor make sure it has wall mount holes or don't buy it. Or when you clean around it pick it up and lay it on its back on bed or somewhere. DONT think you can just lean it out cause the screen is so thin it doesn't take a half pound of pressure to ruin it.
I hope others learn from my mistake. No reason to even contact Acer because I know even without any physical damage they will say customer fault. GREAT panel if it is wall mountable. I am planning to buy another it will have the ability to wall mount and wont be Acer.
Pros: Can load micros from other devices
Left and right click are just right
change DPI on the fly up to 6000
Can custom change DPI thru software to 8500
Works with Media player profiles
Thumb rest is awesome
Color zones can be changed
Scroll wheel is just the right feel
Cons: Sometimes it is hard to find cons but with this mouse the worst con is on a restart it goes to default 400 DPI.
Software causes some games to lag at the wrong time
Other Thoughts: I love the thumb rest on this mouse no more holding your thumb up a little when sliding mouse.
The software is good and very extensive, you can change any setting you want even the colors. You can import micros from other devices so you don't have to start over and you can customize profiles so many different ways that there is an online guide you can download that is 147 pages long. It explains everything you could want. Compared to other laser mice it is above them in most areas. I imported my micros and they work great in most areas. All I use are laser mice for the last 5 years so I am used to them. The left and right clicks are just the right amount of effort. The middle wheel works awesome.
Easy to use. I don't like the lag though.
Pros: Low power as all SSD have
Cost per gig is great
WARRANTY oh yes pay attention to it better than industry standards.
Does compressed and uncompressed data the same
In house controller which only 3 manufactures have.
Cons: Is hard to find a con so far in over a week of use
Other Thoughts: I have at least a dozen different SSD by different manufactures so easy for me to compare this to others. I also have 2x240 gig in a Raid0 config so I can compare speed in different scenarios.
First off Toshiba has their own controller and is getting ready to introduce a even better one called JetExpress in 2015. I am sure they will be more expensive when introduced.
This controller is surprising because it does what so few others do it handles compressed and uncompressed data close to the same. For example compressed benchmarked at
Read 498.25 and Write at 433.96
Uncompressed benched at
Read 460.76 and Write at 417.17 overall score is 1018
The difference is another brand Compressed is 448.92 Read and write is 398.15
Uncompressed Read 158.23 Write 124.95.
All SSD use ATTO as a benchmark for their score and ATTO uses compressed data to test them with. That is why with AS SSD or Crystal Diskmark you get such lower scores because they use uncompressed data.
What this mean for the normal user is that installing programs and games and transferring home movies or picture or music on this OCZ will work faster than a brand that only score high in compressed data.
I have 2x240 gig in Raid 0 and so I tested this OCZ against them. Uncompressed is read 996.02 and write is 504.18 overall score is 1359. As you see uncompressed reads a lot faster but as far as writing it doesn't add that much now watch the numbers jump as I use compressed data.
Read 1071.06 and Write 1029.68. But what user only used compressed data most of us use uncompressed data and that is where this OCZ made by Toshiba shines. My boot up time on this single drive is faster than 4 other brands I have and I think it is the way it handles data is why. Now we are only talking 6 seconds but all but 2 of my other drives cost a lot more than this OCZ.
Now for the last point in why I like this drive is the warranty, It is 3 years as all but one or two other manufactures have they have a 5 year but not one of the others pays for shipping a RMA both ways and cross ships. That is at least a 10. savings if you get one that has problems no hidden cost. Also it has 2,000,000 hours of use at 20 gigs a day. The norm is 1,000,000 to 1,500,000 with 3 years which is measured at 10 gigs a day. So even though it is 3 years they could have easily said 5 years as the others do who have that long of warranty because to them 5 years is 2,000,000 hours. Now that makes them a more honest company to me as they don't stretch out the length of warranty because of the hours of use.
Now that I have seen the difference between this and my other SSD I will change my preferred company to OCZ I love it that they do so great with uncompressed data as that is where 90% od desktop or laptop users will see a speed difference.
