This review is from: ViewEra V191HV-B Black 19" 5ms LCD Video Monitor 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built-in Speakers
Pros: The monitor lasted nearly 8 years with no problems. At the time of purchase 19" of LED screen was a far departure from the CRTs we had always used. Although we were not familiar with the View Era brand we were very impressed. And it worked great until, out of the blue...
Cons: Buyer Beware: A problem developed (internal short?) that caused the external power supply to reach dangerously high temperatures - so hot you could not pick it up and hold on to it for more than a few seconds. Luckily we discovered this before a catastrophic fire could have occurred. Monitor is still functional but will not use it anymore. As long as View Era uses external power supplies we will not purchase another one. Period.
Other Thoughts: Most manufactures are using internal power supplies on their monitors but View Era, isn't. Theirs is also one of the most expensive 4:3 monitors listed here and offers very little in the way of adjusting the monitor. Moving on to another brand for our office.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMS VENUS T4U DS-2340UBK 3.5" IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Considering the median price of the AMS T4U and it's capabilites compared to single drive EE's it really is a great value. Easy to load up with drives and does what it's made to do.
Cons: Four Eggs because OOTB mine had a faulty main power switch, complete failure in a few days. Appears contacts soldered to board - not good idea. I dont like the push button design, should have used a rocker switch like their AMS Venus. Bright blue LED...too bright & blinding on line of sight.
Other Thoughts: To save wear on the main power switch you can use the USB-Auto on feature. But still a main switch should be sturdy mounted and built to last.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LEGACY 4.7GB 8X DVD-R Inkjet Printable 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model DVD-R8X100CBWP
Other Thoughts: These discs are often stuck together, they have to be popped apart and when
you look at the outer edge you can see a residue or cloudiness. This is not good for
writing to the outer edge. They seem to be okay for short duration projects - You will also often find "legacy" discs are probably from production runs that were rejected from other major disc makers like TY. They are not "fakes" but Buy at your own risk.
