This review is from: Acer H6 H276HLbmid Black 27" 5ms HDMI IPS panel Widescreen LED Backlight Monitor
Pros: I shopped around for an affordable large-format, IPS monitor and came across this one. I was impressed by the glass front and slim bezel. The image quality is excellent! I haven't calibrated it yet with i1Profiler but I'm sure there will be no problems. Out of the box colors are vibrant and details are crisp. No dead pixels!
Cons: No VESA mount. I get that there are trade-offs for the price but, come on. It's 4 little holes.
Other Thoughts: Contrary to what others have said, the stand appears to be pretty sturdy. Perhaps the desks of those that complain are not? I would buy another one of these in a heartbeat despite the lack of VESA compliance. I built a monitor stand that goes on my desk and am mounting my ASUS 24" to a full motion mounting arm.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: I purchased the M500 240GB with the Syba SATAIII 6Gbps expansion card to allow for SATAIII speeds on my 6 year old Asus P5Q Pro with an E7400 Core2Duo and 8GB RAM. It has brought the machine back to life! Still not as fast as my Core i7 2.4Ghz with 16GB RAM but I'm getting: 365 MB/s read, 260 MB/s write. I'm pretty happy with this!
Cons: Not quite as fast as the 500 MB/s read as advertised but being that this is on an older machine, I can't truly complain.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommend! A necessary upgrade (with a SATAIII card) for any older Desktop or laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
