Pros: Very big. Very cheap. HDMI, DVI, VGA, the trifecta of connectivity. 1080 resolution. Lightweight and highly portable, for LAN parties.
Cons: Have owned for about 9 months now... Since new, every 2-3 weeks, when I sit down to use my computer (which is on, not in sleep mode, but has Display Sleep enabled)... I wake the screen, and it either shows no display with an No Signal error message, or it shows a garbled display (like old school VHS when the tracking is messed up). Powering the monitor off-and-on fixes it every time. I guess that's a good thing.
Other Thoughts: I'm worried this won't last, due to the garbled output issue that keeps reoccurring. But for the $200 I paid for this monitor, it's huge, cheap, and does the job I wanted it to do.
I wish it had height adjust... but if I wanted that, I should have paid for a monitor with that feature set. I knew that when I bought it.
This LCD is *not* my Dell 24" or my Dell 30" UltraSharp. But it's a good CHEAP substitute.
Besides, my Dell 30" does not have HDMI or VGA, and requires a dual link DVI graphics card just to get a useable resolution. And my Dell 24" is almost double the weight of my Hanns-G.
You give some, you take some.
Pros: Runs at very cool temperature. No clicking, etc out of the box. Arrived safely, no evidence of package abuse.
Formatted without any issue. Moved 900 GB of data onto it, transfer speed was very acceptable -- much better than my WD Green 750gb.
Running at SATA 6.0G/s with a Rosewill round SATA cable and a Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 board.
Cons: None so far.
It was on sale for $10 less than I paid on the day that I received my drive shipment. Oh well. That happens. :)
Other Thoughts: Seagate may have finally regained my trust, after the past 5 years of avoiding them like the plague.
(I lost data on a number of fairly-new 120gb 2.5", 160gb 3.5, and 250gb 3.5 Seagate drives in 2006-'08)
Pros: Nice physical form factor, good specifications, very easy to replace firmware with DD-WRT.
In a few more months I might buy the more powerful RT-N16, and relegate this RT-N12 to Access Point duty for extending my range.
Cons: The included 9V, 1A power adapter died after 12 hours of use. I confirmed this by checking a compatible Linksys, which would not power on using the adapter, and by taking the Linksys' working adapter (also 9V 1A) and using it to power the ASUS back on.
I had to get a little bit firm and insistent (but polite!) with the Support staff at ASUS, but I have, after two months, finally convinced ASUS to replace the dead power adapter without having to relinquish the router to them as well.
Other Thoughts: I have read in many places that folks recommend ditching the 9V 1A adapter altogether and replacing it with a stable, aftermarket 9V 1.5A adapter for better performance. I have not done this. I am using an extra 9V 1A adapter I found from another device (old print server) that has the same tip.READ FULL REVIEW
