This review is from: Nippon Labs Model DP-DVI-6 6 ft. DisplayPort to DVI-D 28 AWG Cable M-M
Pros: I ordered about ten of these, and so far they've all worked perfectly. The DisplayPort connector snaps in nicely and fits snugly, and the DVI connector screws right in without too much difficulty. The screws are long enough that you can fairly easily get a handle on them.
Cons: The DVI connector is a little long for some monitors, meaning it can be tough to get it into the port. Hasn't caused any issues for me yet, but I guess it's something to consider if your ports are difficult to access.
Other Thoughts: I'll definitely be picking some more of these up in the near future. A great product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The length allows for adequate spacing of most power adapters, although I do still have a couple that are too wide. Fortunately, even they won't cover more than one extra outlet, compared to the 2 or 3 they might disable on other power strips. The extra long cable is actually not very conducive to my use, but it's definitely a substantial, well-designed cable with plenty of length for most uses. Also, they include wall mounting hardware, so that's nice if you want to keep this thing stationary.
Cons: A pretty minor thing, but for some reason about half of these half shipped with a broken plastic cover for the switch. These are easily removable, and don't really serve much purpose beyond making sure someone doesn't accidentally flip the switch with their foot, so it's not really a big deal... just annoying
Other Thoughts: Hard to beat these for the price, definitely better than anything you'll find at your local hardware or electronics store.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Dell P2314H Black 23" 8ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 1,000:1
Pros: Beautiful screens, rotating stands, IPS technology, includes a DisplayPort cable, and just pretty in general. Also, the built in USB hub is nice to have.
Cons: Unfortunately Dell decided to move the USB ports on these screens from the edge of the monitor to the back. Not as convenient, but still nice to have so you can avoid the problem of short keyboard/mouse cables. Also, these screens are a super wide 16:9 ratio, so make sure you're not trying to fit two of them into a tiny cubicle like I was! I was fortunately able to make them fit, but only because of the slimline desktops I ordered, and it's definitely tight. Text looks weird, until you configure it in Windows.
Other Thoughts: These are a great buy, especially for the price. While they may not be the highest quality image, you won't find anything better for the price. IPS, LED, decent resolution... it's a steal! Anything better will easily cost you 2-3 times as much (though it may be worth it for the heavy users or display reliant).READ FULL REVIEW
