Pros: Easy install. Sort of worked.
Cons: Drive was defective. Would periodically freeze and cause a kernel panic.Currently waiting to receive the replacement, which will hopefully work properly.
Other Thoughts: Luckily the drive showed its faults within the 30 return period for newegg. I've dealt with samsung's customer support in the past and it was an absolute nightmare, which I'd prefer not to go through again.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.
