Acer S220HQLAbd  Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I bought two of these in 2012. These monitors were great for over a year. Cheap, light, nice enough image, can't really complain.

Cons: Both monitors I bought lost functionality of their DVI port. The first one crapped out about 6 months ago. I tried everything, even using different DVI cables... no good, only the VGA would work.
About two weeks ago, this same phenomenon occurred on my second monitor. Try as I might, I cannot get any kind of signal through the DVI port.

Now I have to run both monitors off their VGA ports and since I'm running both off an Ivy bridge on an ASRock Z77 I can use one VGA and the DVI is digital only (so the DVi-->VGA connectors don't work) leaving me with an HDMI-->VGA connector (degraded image?!).

Anyway getting the same issue in both monitors has been very frustrating. It must be a recurring issue if it happened first in one of my monitors, and then the other some time later.

Other Thoughts: Hope your DVI ports don't die since there's no HDMI on these.

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400PHU2-2GBZX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works as advertised, runs DDR2-800 very stable.

Cons: Very limited overclocking. Doesn't respond much to volts and doesn't have much headroom. This stuff comes binned to the max so don't expect much beyond stock.

Also major problems in 965P Chipset as mentioned. I got it to boot in a P5B-Deluxe by setting 2.1 Vdimm in BIOS using different ram, and then putting the ZX in. This ram WILL NOT boot in a p5B deluxe @ default bios settings! Even when i got it booted however, it had major problems.

Other Thoughts: Buy this to run stock only
