Acer B6 Series B286HK ymjdpprz (UM.PB6AA.003) Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great value, I bought it at $350, it's $399 as I write this. I like Acer, and I like this monitor, see my other review for more pros

Cons: The USB disconnects when the monitor goes to sleep so you don't want to plug anything into that needs a persistent connection like memory card readers, flash drives or external sound. When the monitor sleeps, you hear the USB disconnect sound and you hear it come on when it comes on.
The other problem is the viewing angle. I use mine in portrait mode. Compared to a (HD) Dell monitor next to it, same size, the viewable angle is has much more consistency. It literally looks like a gradient. I don't recommend this monitor if you need calibrated color for design. It is nice and sharp though.

Acer B6 Series B286HK ymjdpprz (UM.PB6AA.003) Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This a really solid piece of hardware. I highly recommend it.
Two very important specs this has to be cautious of with models selling for even more, such as the Dell 4k Monitor is it has a VESA mount (that's key for any monitor) and a 60hz refresh rate. Don't get anything lower.
I got stupid lucky and saw this on sale for $350, 3 days before black friday and bought three. If you're not in a hurry, I suggest stalking this monitor and getting it on sale.
It worked out of the box plugged into the HDMI port of my MacBook Pro Retina.
This is the grail of Screen Real Estate

Cons: Out of the box, it had a default setting of "Full", you want Aspect to show the picture correctly the picture got a lot sharper and you could see the top menu on the bar.

Other Thoughts: Crazy small fonts take some getting used to, but thats 4K for you.
Make sure you have a system and a video card to support it or it will be limited by the max resolution of your video card.

Kensington K72352US Black RF Wireless Orbit Mobile Trackball
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: it's not a bad mouse,

Cons: I'm not a fan of the form factor. The ball is too small and the buttons are not optimally place

Other Thoughts: I usually buy logitech mice, going back a long time. Everytime I try Kensington, I'm disappointed.
