This review is from: ASUS ROG PG278Q Black 27" WQHD 2560 x 1440, 144 Hz 1ms (GTG) NVIDIA G-Sync Gaming Monitor with Exclusive GamePlus onscreen timer / crosshair, Tilt, Swivel, Pivot, Height Adjustable
Pros: G-Sync is awesome, and the buttery smoothness of 120-144hz is just amazing. In addition to that, this is the only monitor that out of the box, is able to achieve those high refresh rates at 2560x1440. Input lag feels non-existent. Colors are pretty decent, not as good as IPS, but far from bad. The monitor stand is excellent. The rear buttons are very simple to use and the joystick is perfect for making quick adjustments.
Cons: Out of range error message often, currently requires unplugging/replugging the displayport cable to fix (very annoying)
Backlight is a little uneven, and you will see some colorshift on solid color backgrounds if you look for it. ULMB mode brightness is pretty low, but usable.
Other Thoughts: The first few days of gaming I had no issues at all. Only after about a week did I start to get the out of range message. Unplugging and replugging the displayport cable is annoying. Hopefully they are able to fix this in an update in the near future.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works perfect. Build quality seems pretty good. I really like the on/off switch to turn on/off whatever you have plugged into this handy device. Has a blue power LED light and White access/read LED, which is also handy to tell if a drive is even working.
Other Thoughts: I often work on computers for family/friends, this device is very handy to have near by. For netbooks I can use this to access a dvd drive, with laptops it's nice to be able to copy over OS to a new drive/ssd. Also works great to trouble shoot stubborn HDDs that won't boot anymore, you can at least hook this up to another machine and try to salvage some files easily. Overall it's a great product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
Pros: Small, and doesn't get in the way of neighboring USB ports. Blinks blue so you know it's working.
Cons: Range is far from great. I expected it to be much better, or at least close to my other "standard size" usb wifi adapter. The added software is not for everyone. I prefer the windows default wireless utility.
Other Thoughts: The range isn't the best in the world on these, but it fulfills my needs, so I didn't knock off any eggs. I bought two of these, the one in my HTPC seems to have decent speed. I've had no issues streaming 1080p video. Speed tests show around 9 meg download which is pretty much all that I get from my cable modem. At the normal list price, I'd avoid these, but for 66% off, they are a great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
