Acer P235Hbmid Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Been through a lot. Takes hits like a champ. Day I got it, right out of the box, I dropped it from above-bed height; not a single rattling piece inside. Almost 4 years later, and I'm still proud I bought it. Modern monitors can't compare. A shame this is discontinued. For $200 this was - and is - better than many the same price today. Gloss finish was something that drove me to the purchase; I've been looking, and it's hard to find something these days that matches this quality.

Cons: Raised my standards, encouraged elitism. Wouldn't rely on built-in audio as a first choice. Nvidia cards treat it funny. It likes to be the recessive monitor on dual set-ups (??? don't ask). As the default, motherboard boot screens display funny, and in-OS the colors are off.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to play the first Dragon Age Origins (that was the excuse I used at least). Really brought the game to life. Gloss finish gets a bad wrap over traditional matte; and there is a large difference! Even without glare, a lot of people complain that the colors 'look funny'. That's because it's a different finish. I did have a few dead pixels (likely due to my dropping it) for a while at first, but they've long since vanished. Moved 3 times with it in storage truck, still performs beautifully.

Rosewill RHUB-300 - 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub with Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Self installs. Nice sleek design, still works over a year later. Comes with power cable, if you're gonna be charging with it (use common sense people). Power light. Activity light. Smooth plug-in and removal. Sweet spot grip (not too tight or loose). Really couldn't do better ($20 on sale).

Cons: Wasn't free? Occasionally disconnects peripherals if you plug in a large flash drive (they come back on re-connect).

Other Thoughts: Light is indeed fairly bright. Haven't had a single problem with any Rosewill device so far. Docking stations, cases, power supplies, tools, headsets, cables, accessories. Rosewill responds to most 1-egg reviews.

UtechSmart US-D4000-GM High Precision Optical Gaming Mouse - 4000 DPI, 6 Programmable Buttons, Omron Micro Switches, 5 Profiles for PC, AVAGO ADNS-3050 Chipset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 4 Colors, 4 DPI settings. If you're used to 2k DPI like me, there's a big difference in precision in the jump up to 4k. Moves across dual monitors with no effort. Shipped in 4 days from China? Colors fairly bright, but not blinding (have a 'pulse' setting too). Box it comes in is pretty neat (front opens). Drivers/manual/video on their site. Lightweight, smooth. Might just be me, but the real thing seems much more sleek and slender than most depictions. Symmetrical, but save for the logo. Well worth $20 if you don't mind flashy and need speed.

Cons: I couldn't install the bundled drivers, but that's my fault (I have no CD drive). Find myself accidentally bumping the DPI switch occasionally. Can plainly see beneath left/right buttons; they feel as if they might rip off easily, or if dropped just right (butterfly wings come to mind, makes me feel timid). Overall clearly sacrifices practicality for design; gaps everywhere materials meet. For price, not enough to drop an egg over.

Other Thoughts: Driver is 'Small CD' type. Cable isn't as long as my last mouse's, but long enough to reach the required distance. Recommend unplugging any other mice with DPI buttons; they will argue with each other. Forward button on right side of mouse, backward on left side by default. USB connector is slightly big (styled design). USB cable feels and looks like shoelaces (blue, braided), not typical black cable. They have their instruction manual online if you are curious about the driver. The Macro recorder records keyboard strokes, too.
