HTC One M8 Grey 4G LTE Quad-Core 32GB Unlocked GSM Android Cell Phone U.S. Version
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, Sleek, Highly Customizable. This is an overall great phone and this makes the 3rd one I've bought either for myself or for family & friends. It's easily bootloader unlocked and s-off'd as well, meaning you can literally make it into just about anything you like. Also love that HTC has gone back to offering the sdcard slot again, meaning you can add an extra 128gig to the phone's already ample storage. It comes sim unlocked(although you can do this yourself if you're so inclined). Get one nao!

Cons: It's a little slick(maybe because of the brushed aluminum case) so it can slip around easily until you get a case for it, which makes you pretty paranoid.
Newegg's price is pretty high. You can pick one up on auction sites for about half what they're charging. I got this one because the wife needed a new phone and didn't want to wait for me to find a cheaper one there.

Other Thoughts: Couldn't recommend this phone more, edpecially if you're a fan of HTC devices. Really great phone.

BenQ XL2411Z Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast and smooth, as advertised. Decent design, decent selection of on board features. Easy to set up. No Dead Pixels(yay!)
The 144 does seem to make a difference, which is nice, and I experienced very quirks that I was getting before.

Cons: The default calibration is TRASH. It will shock when you first turn it on. It's waaaaaaaaaaay off. Very bright and washed out and initially a bit tedious to get adjusted right. The cable holder on back of the stand is pretty flimsy, but that's a minor gripe.

Other Thoughts: I found that a combination of on board adjustments, and calibration through Windows 7 own available tools was the "magic" combo I needed. The ICC profiles I found made little to no difference to what I had already adjusted myself, however the windows adjustments made a very noticeable difference and got my colors and picture to an overall much more acceptable state. The issue I take with this(and why I deduct eggs) is that there is virtually no documentation in the monitor going over any of this....and that seems like a pretty big oversight to me. Also, the default state could(and should) be much better than it is. Seriously, it's shocking the first time you turn it on, and I could have done without the scare.
Also, they ship this is the manufacturer's box and UPS proceeds to just leave it on the front porch where anyone can walk up and take it. I'm not sure this is the best way to handle shipping expensive computer parts. Overall I like it so far though.

HTC One X+ Plus Black 4G Quad-Core 1.7 GHz GSM 64 GB Unlocked Cell Phone
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast processor, decent amount of ram, lots of storage capacity, decent battery life, lte.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is a great phone, but it's one of those where you should know what you're getting first. The tegra cpu, etc means there isn't a lot of 3rd party dev support so you can pretty much forget about custom roms like CM10/11 so you better like sense 4/5. Also, android version only goes as high as 4.2.2. And that's likely the highest it will ever get. Some of the early versions also had overheat issues, and in general, this phone runs hot anyway. Mine has never once overheated though. It is fully lte capable with at&t and straight talk as well. Mine has the lte data icon up top and everything. Those are the only real things to note. I like mine a lot and don't plan on upgrading it anytime soon.
