Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautiful monitor, zero dead or bright pixels. Good menu control. Great image on DVI and even VGA.

Fairly lightweight (less than my other 24" monitors) and also thinner too, also thinner bezel than other 24's I have.

Cons: The display port is much less value than I expected. Most digital ports (e.g. DVI and HDMI) can be connected to from any other digital PC output - e.g. if your PC has DVI, HDMI, or DP you can simply get a cable converter and connect it to the DVI or HDMI port on the monitor.

However, not DP. You can connect a PC with a DP socket to any monitor socket. However, not the other way around! The DP socket on the monitor DOES NOT work with a DVI based graphics card. So beware. The port is effectively useless unless you have Displayport on your PC.

To be fair and complete, I haven't tested HDMI to DP as I don't have that cable, it's just DVI (on the PC) to DP on the Monitor that I've tested and doesn't work.

I also called Dell before buying the cable, and they were completely uncertain, ultimately making a guess and telling me it would work, although it doesn't.

Other Thoughts: Also lacks sound. I knew this coming in, but am already missing it for my kids computer. (I have both mine for multi monitor computing, and their computer attached for them)

XIGMATEK AOS (Aeronautical Oil System Bearing) XAF-F1452 140mm Case Fan Ultra Quiet Copper Bushing Axis Aeronautical Oil System Bearing
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Large, stylish, fairly quiet

Cons: At $25 I had expected more. Although the paper specs indicate that it should push huge volumes of air, I think it may only do so if totally unrestricted. Once it's put behind a chassis grille the static pressure is low, and the air flow much less than expected. It is also noiser than I had hoped for too.

Other Thoughts: Good product, but probably not very good value at $25 each.

ZALMAN ZM600-HP 600W Continuous @ 45°C ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Modular Active PFC Modular LED Heatpipe-Cooled SLI Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked great for about 4 years. Quiet. Large fan.

Cons: After 4 years it became unreliable, sometimes causing boot problems. I wasn't sure whether to suspect the motherboard, CPU (which was overclocked) or the PSU. However, a month shy of 5 years it died, and it's definately the PSU at fault.
