HP 24o Black 24
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: + Full HD resolution (pretty much standard, though nice in sub-two-hundred-dollar monitor)

+ No dead or stuck pixels

+ A+ efficiency rating

+ 2ms response time

+ mountable

Cons: - 60Hz refresh rate

- Came without the power cable

- Cannot adjust monitor vertically

- No digital cable included. Comes with 1 short analog VGA cable.

Other Thoughts: Packaging is nothing special; bunch of black ink on typical cardboard box. The monitor was well packaged, with styrofoam enclosed around the monitor. Removing the styrofoam shell reveals a styrofoam bag wrapped around the monitor. Removing the bag shows that monitor has a "Quick Guide" taped to the monitor (and further protecting the screen while forcing customers to at least read it) on how to assemble the monitor and hook the monitor to power and display device.

Included with the packaging is a CD with Driver and Software instructions, a bunch of misc papers, an analog VGA cable and supposedly a power cable according to the "Quick Guide". When unpackaging the contents, I noticed the VGA cable but no power cable. Fortunately I have a stock pile of computer hardware and cables, thus, a power cable on hand.

Analog signal isn't 'bad', but it does tend to produce a more washed-out screen than with digital (HDMI, DVI, Display-Port). The monitor only supports 60Hz and a 2ms "on/off" response rate.

Putting the monitor together was as simple pushing the appropriate connectors in place (the base, the neck adapter, and the monitor itself); there are no screws or turning an apartatus of any kind. Ensembling was a sinch.

Interacting with the OSD is not bad. I've seen worse. Even though subjective, the OSD menus are easy to navigate. There are options to change the "colour", sharpness, ACR, 'overdrive', 'auto adjust', 'image adjust' and the typical brightness/contrast. These controls are fairly common in monitors so shouldn't come as a surprise. I do like the fact that one can change the color to 5000K, 6500K, 9300K presets. There is even the option to alter the RGB color values to customize the color to your preference.

It is disappointing that the screen can't adjust vertically. One could always prop the monitor under stuff to raise the screen but would be nice if ability was just native to the stand.

Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1D)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

3 out of 5 eggs It works, nothing exciting 08/26/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1D)

Pros: + Easy warranty/registration access to SP's site provided on flash drive

+ Comes pre-formatted (FAT32)

+ Retractable plug (cap-less design)

+ LED indictor

+ Allows for a lanyard (not included)

Cons: - Minimum improvement of WRITE between device connected to USB 3.0 and 2.0 port (see OTHER for details)

- Write speeds not impressive, a third of advertised speed once initial burst write is over

Other Thoughts: Performed a couple of tests; Windows 10 Desktop to Flash drive read/write test and a test using ATTO Benchmark.

To make it easier for folks to get an idea how the drive performs, I'll just be posting only the random and sequential speeds minus Q-depth and other more detailed info.

I ran each benchmark 3 times and took the average. The following benchmarks were with the device connected to a USB 3.0 port.

ATTO:

Sequential write of 1GB file: 20.69 MB/s
Seq. read of 1GB file: 131.20 MB/s

Transfering 600MB ISO from Windows 10 desktop to Flash drive (write) then copying it back to Desktop (read)

Seq. write: 18 MB/s
Seq. read: 130 MB/s
Random write: 0.1 MB/s
Random read: 11 MB/s

The following bencharks were with the device connected to a USB 2.0 port.

ATTO:

Seq. write of 1GB file: 12.30 MB/s
Seq. read of 1GB file: 32.31 MB/s

Transfering 600MB ISO from Windows 10 desktop to Flash drive (write) then copying it back to Desktop (read)

Seq. write: 11.4 MB/s
Seq. read: 32.2 MB/s
Random write: 0.01 MB/s
Random read: 6.1 MB/s

Delonghi AC230 Air Purifier with Ionizer, Sensor Touch Screen
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs A simple, good air purifier 08/24/2016

This review is from: Delonghi AC230 Air Purifier with Ionizer, Sensor Touch Screen

Pros: + Timer option
+ 3 speed options
+ Ionizer (though there are debates online as to whether makes a difference)
+ Auto fan speed mode (see OTHER section)

Cons: - Couple of the individual sensor lights have stopped working after 6 months

Other Thoughts: Air purifier has been running well, 24/7 for over 1 year. Couple of the lights for the auto-sensing touch area have stopped working, so even if you press the section for maximum air flow, the light never turns on. I dissembled the unit to see if possible unit got jarred and wire slipped, but all looks good - light simply dead. Not a big deal for me.
