Pros: I do a lot of Photoshop, and I bought this monitor to mate with my MacPro desktop computer (2013). I got it from Newegg on a Black Friday deal for an incredibly low price. The monitor has far exceeded expectations. The colors are beautiful, and even though the images are sharp, there's a kind of softness that makes it easy on the eyes.
Cons: This monitor was made for a Windows machine, so if you own a Mac, you'll have to buy a $100 cable from Apple. Some people complained their cable didn't work, but mine has worked perfectly from the beginning. The other thing is that the monitor has five control buttons on the side that are very fiddly. It always takes several tries to get results. The good news is that you don't have to fiddle with them very often once they are set up unless you calibrate the monitor—but that involves only one or two buttons, so no big deal.
Other Thoughts: I love this monitor. It's big and professional and beautiful—well worth the cost. I'm in no way connected with Dell, I just think it's a great monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This was a surprisingly good buy. I just purchased a new Mac Pro, and even though it has four USB 3.0 ports, that's not enough for all my peripherals. In the past, when I plugged peripherals into my USB hubs, some of them just wouldn't work unless plugged directly into the computer. This hub will work with anything I plug into it. So far, all my peripherals are USB 2.0 except for my Lexus card reader, which I just bought. Unbelievably, it transferred 9 gigabytes from my Nikon D800 in just under two minutes.
Cons: None. I like everything about it.
Other Thoughts: Obviously, it doesn't seem to work with all computers. I've noticed from reading many user reviews that those who have the biggest problems with a product either have an older computer or a laptop. Under these conditions, I would not buy the HooToo, although you could always send it back if it doesn't work. If you have a fairly new desktop computer, your chances of this hub working are multiplied, though nothing in life is for sure . . .READ FULL REVIEW
