AOC Q2770PQU Black  27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Image quality

Cons: Thin plastic housing

Other Thoughts: Bought a pair and a dual monitor mount (VESA). But plastic monitor housing is so flimsy around the VESA mounting that the monitor sags under its own weight and tilts forward at the top. Had to abandon $100 dual monitor stand and go back to factory stand. Too bad as it would have only taken another 5 cents of plastic reinforcement to solve the problem.

HP 8610 Up to 19 ppm (ISO) Up to 31 ppm (Draft) Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality HP Thermal Inkjet MFP Color Printer
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: ADF
Simple installation

Cons: Funky duplexing process
Excessive pop-ups to get thru the process - from 2-4 after the primary screen depending on what you need to accomplish
You have to slightly pinch the paper between the ADF rails to keep image from skewing
Default DPI choices inadequate (maybe more training?)

Other Thoughts: Replaced a $120 Epson whose ADF finally gave up, which replaced a $120 predecessor to this model whose ADF finally gave up. The print cartridges on all these little printers will bankrupt you. After the HP I gave up and use the paper tray for dedicated envelope printing. Thought I'd try another generation of HP and get everything in the world. Not even close. Only gave it two eggs for the ADF - otherwise junk.

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel Grandia Series SST-GD07B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautiful anodized brushed aluminum face plate. Nice workmanship throughout. Plenty of room for full-sized MOBO and long-ish GPU. Plenty of mounting points for fans - although they could have arranged them better.

Cons: Loss of egg for seemingly unnecessary two-handled steel insert that drops into case from above to hold optical drives behind the keyed flip-down face plate. Optical drives must be mounted so far forward (to make flush) that you cannot remove the same two-handled insert once the drives are secured. Otherwise, third fan mounting spot on case bottom is blocked by same steel insert once installed - taped closed the perforated bottom in this area. Feels a little pricey at $125. Finally, the little removable "vent" (that has no purpose) above the row of peripheral blanks that you remove for rail-mounted cards might interfere with some GPUs - I have a MSI TwinFrozr. Was running four fans into the case so I just left it out - the positive case pressure would cause that opening to become an exhaust port anyway.

Other Thoughts: I built this to hang under a desk for aesthetic reasons. It won't look good next to a McIntosh but otherwise I would use this case for a home theater build. A little pricey (could've saved $10 dropping the two-handled steel insert) but then we'll always ask for more value. None of the little issues were deal-breakers but required time to resolve each. Would buy again.
