Hanns·G HH-281HPB Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1. Massive real estate
2. Lowest price for this size monitor
3. High quality construction
4. Two HDMI ports
5. Light weight
This is a simply amazing monitor for the price. I got more value than what I had expected...
6. contiguous controls

Cons: There is only one thing I noticed that I not very pleased about but it has nothing to with this monitor or the brand. I was at 1920x1200 rez on a 24" and this monitor's 1920x1200 rez on 28" looks softer. Running 1080p on a tv or a monitor going larger has it's disadvantages, the pixels are stretched. With a TV you can just watch it from farther away and it looks crisper. That's why televisions have a recommended viewing distance. With a monitor that sits on your desk that's usually not an option. Long story short, my 24" looked crisper, small price to pay for a HUGE monitor.

Other Thoughts: 1920x1200 resolution 16:10 widescreen. The aspect ratio is the classic 16:10 ratio which is best for pc gaming. Most newer monitors are being developed for the narrower 1080p 16:9 movie resolution. The downfall of 16:9 is that you lose a little more of your viewable area and if you are a gamer you know what a drag that can be. Did I mention this is an amazing monitor, go big or go home...

Wintec AMPX 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 3AXT8500C5-2048K
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1066mhz with decent timings. price is attractive

Cons: will not easily post at advertised timings. It took considerable tweaking to get it to post as advertised. I tried running this in conjunction with the Gskill equivalent and it would not post. hard pressed to run 1066 stable in multiple systems both intel and AMD tested.

Other Thoughts: I ran this with some crucial ballistix tracer memory which has some of the best timings I've ever ran and this stuff can't hold a candle to it. I was overall dissapointed with the purchase.... for ten bucks more you can get the Gskill and get better results

OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2P10664GK
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: OCZ make quality ram

Cons: This company never pays out on their rebates. I got maybe one of the last 6 rebates I've submitted with this company over the last year. OCZ thanks for waisting my time.

Other Thoughts: I called the company and spoke with a service rep after repeated email attempts. The rep told me that the rebate form i submitted was for a different promotion. i asked how this was possible when Newegg posts the rebate on the item page the day i made the purchase the same day it was printed out. They obviously tried to pass the buck onto newegg. After this was questioned they agreed to send the rebate check but it never came
