QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution II Multi TRUE10 SE Monitor - 2560x1440 Overclockable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This was the perfect monitor for me. Very cheap 2560x1440 resolution without all the bells and whistles of the more expensive panels. I picked this up when it was $299 which was an amazing deal.

The panel I got has 0 dead pixels which is fantastic. It is vesa compatible so you can mount it which is a huge plus. The picture and colors are amazing. Very happy I upgraded from 1080p.

When I got it, I thought it only had DVI connection, but it also has HDMI which was a nice surprise!

I've only gamed on it a few times, but I don't see any noticeable artifacting, screen tearing, ghosting, or lagging so as an amateur gamer I'm happy.

Cons: The built in audio is horrific, but I don't use it so I can't knock an egg.

It's a little big (bezel), but I don't really find it distracting anymore.

Other Thoughts: This was an awesome purchase, one of my better ones. I dragged my feet before buying it, but I'm very happy I finally gave in.

TP-LINK TL-WN725N  Nano Wireless N150 Adapter, 150Mbps, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: For 13 bucks this is a great little USB Wireless N Adapter. If you are already connected to the web (via lan or another wireless device) the driver installation is automatic upon plugging in the device. If not then it's as simple as grabbing the drivers from their site and installing on your machine via usb flash drive.

I used this to replace the built in wifi on a laptop that I haven't yet gotten a replacement pci card for. Works great! I get a good strong signal over the entire house and the dongle is quite unobtrusive when moving the machine around and doesn't really snag on anything in the bag when I pack it away because of it's size.

I'm getting around 100mb/s internally on my network transferring files from my NAS. Internet speeds are around 50mb/s (should cap around 60). Overall a great little device to use as a replacement in a laptop or just to keep around in a pinch!

Cons: There can't really be anything negative to say about this. It works and for $14 you can't really beat it. It's a little ugly, I've seen some more aesthetically pleasing devices, but otherwise it works just fine.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't use this in a desktop, spend a few more dollars and get an integrated PCIe card or usb with external antennae.

Doesn't connect on 5GHz, but it clearly states 2.4GHz only so it's not really a con. Would have been an awesome plus though!

StarTech SATDOCK2REU3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great device. Use this more than I thought I would. I purchased this initially as a HDD dock, but I find I am using the duplicator and eraser functions a lot! It's nice to hit the button and then walk away, come back in a bit and the clone is done. It sure beats putting the drives in a PC or using some mess of cables to hook everything up.

Speeds are pretty good when cloning and erasing disks. Speeds are also quite good when using as a dock.

Cons: I don't like that you have to unplug the dock from your PC to use the clone / erase function. Also every once in a while I get an issue when plugging two drives into the dock they don't register on the PC and I have to reboot the dock. Other than that it's a good device, a little pricey, but it was well worth it for me
