Pros: D-Sub, HDMI, and DVI allow me to connect this monitor to just about anything. No wall-wart...takes a standard three-wire power cord.
Cons: While the stand allows tilting, there's no height adjust. Built-in speakers (accessable only if using HDMI) are pretty wimpy. Asus could have left them out with no complaint. Monitor ships with brightness high enough to burn your retinas (turn it down for a normal looking display).
Other Thoughts: Really, for what this is selling for, you get a great basic LCD monitor with a very sharp display. Don't be looking for great sound out of the speakers, or a fancy adjustable stand. The effort here is all in the display.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG Black 16x Blu-Ray BDXL SATA Internal rewriter with 3D Playback, Model BH16NS40
Pros: Reads and writes to just about any media you can find. I've burned tons of DVD-DL and a number of BD-DL disks. I had sooo many problems with other units burning DL disks, but this one has yet to burn a coaster.
Cons: A bit pricey, but it beats spending money on a lesser unit that won't do what it's advertised to do. When burning and fully spun-up, the disk in the tray is really flying, and you can certainly hear it sing. But normal reading is next to silent.
Other Thoughts: Been through a dozen BD burners, and this is the only one that does everything it's supposed to do without errors or complaint.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Hard drive fits like a glove. Quiet fan. Lovely mechanical design. This enclosure is exactly what I was looking for...except...
Cons: ...except USB is totally non-functional. I get decent transfer speeds from eSATA, but not a peep from USB (system doesn't even recognize that a drive has been connected). No amount of fussing or connecting or waiting or re-connecting or rebooting helps. "It's dead, Jim".
Other Thoughts: After reading the other reviews, I should have known better. Newegg shows these black models as sold out. I'll be returning this one, but I'm torn as to whether I should try the silver one (RX-358 U3C SLV), or simply give up on Rosewill and go with something else.READ FULL REVIEW
