Pros: 144hz and 1ms response
DP, HDMI, DVI-D
Height adjustable stand
Super bright backlight (blinding)
Cons: Washed out colors
Panel uniformity issues
Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor to see what all the craze was about 120Hz+ gaming. I knew going in that this monitor was going to have washed out colors like many review sites stated. But I did not think it was going to be this bad when using 144Hz setting.
Also the panel uniformity is poor. On mine the upper left corner is always a little bit dimmer then the rest of the display.
But after calibrating it with CalMan RGB it corrects some of the color and greyscale; nothing to write home about.
You will not be disappointed in the 144Hz. Just moving the mouse on your desktop is a new experience. Playing BF4, TitanFall, Dota2, TF2 and even HearthStone (yes a card game) is so much better. Everything is just smoother. There is still screen tearing but its reduced.
I hope NVidia bring back some G-Sync DYI kits. I really want to see what this monitor is like with G-Sync
Pros: The published speeds is what I am getting when I benched with ATTO benchmark tool.
Easy install; as this replaced my current Dell Latitude E6410 HDD.
On this laptop it took me all of 5mins.
Immediately saw boot time performance when I installed it.
The OS has not BSOD on me and its been running all day today.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: This SSD was a replacement for a work laptop that is running Win XP SP3 and a WD 5400rpm Scorpio Blue drive. With the slow molasses HDD it would take >10mins to cold boot all the way to a usable desktop.
With this it now takes it <2mins.
Again that is from power on, to log in, load all the IT junk, and finish with system tray at the bottom (again loading it with more IT junk) and some of my programs.
I use the SSD toolbox for the TRIM function (since XP does not have native TRIM) and it takes mere seconds to do it.
I also used a Barts PE disc with Ghost32 8.0 to move the image over from the HDD to the SSD.
This review is from: StarTech USB2106S USB to Ethernet Network Adapter
Pros: Took it out of the box, plugged in my Win7 64-bit PC, found the drivers and off I went.
Other Thoughts: Because of the design of it will dangle off the back of the PC if your using it in a tower. I recommened just getting a USB extension cable and setting on the desk or the ground. That way it wont shake so much when you have Ethernet cable plugged in.READ FULL REVIEW
