This review is from: QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution II Multi TRUE10 SE Monitor - 2560x1440 Overclockable
Pros: 2560x1440... that is THE PRO and it is a Samsung panel. Still waiting for my DVI-D adapter for my Macbook Air. So, don't know what 2540x1440 looks like yet so I am using it in 1920x1080 mode. Well packed and came FAST from Newegg.
Cons: Well, there is one stuck "on" pixel.. but that's not the biggest con. The biggest is the stand. The stand is a sad excuse for a stand... no adjustment what so ever. The monitor as shown in the webpage is a fixed angled stand that holds the monitor at a 15 degree or so tilt. Its permanent, no adjusting. The stand was also a bit wobbly and the screen that holds it from the base to the monitor arm didnt' screw in all the way. There is a bit of light leakage around the edges of the screen.
So, the aforementioned is the reason why I taking away an egg.
This review is from: LG Black Optimus F6 T-Mobile No Contract 4G Smart Phone
Pros: Got this for my Mom to replace her basic phone. At $99 and loading up the Big Launcher is going to be great for her. The phone is light and the UI is very responsive since I didn't load up much onto it. I have not yet put it onto the T-Mo network as that will be next month when we move from ATT to T-Mo and save ourselves some $$$. The wifi is connecting to my home router at 40Mbps down with no problem.
Cons: None that I can really think of... perhaps it ISN'T $50 cheaper and I can get it for $49 instead of $99? ;-)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS Duo v2 2-bay (diskless) w/ 3 yr warranty (RND2000-200NAS)
Pros: ReadyNAS reputation and speed of NAS were the selling points for me. I am upgrading from my Dlink DNS-321 NAS for better throughput performance as the DNS-321 has a gigabit interface but the internals only really support the need for a 100Mb/s interface. My transfer B/W is about 3-5MB/s... Time to upgrade and with the price on Newegg I pulled the trigger
Cons: Documentation is bit a weak which I rarely go to unless I have a problem but in this case it was a rocky start as with my Dlink it was a put the drives in, plug it in and off and go to the webpages to start the process of configuring the NAS. In the case of the ReadyNAS I was using a 3TB WD Green Caviar drive that was a pull from a PC. I got the dreaded "Corrupt Root" in the status with a solid blue led indicator in the RAIDar utility SW. The documentation doesn't indicate what solid blue means as the HTML doc has it as a blinking blue. Doing some web searches I came up with deleting the volume and then trying again ... I did do this and came result. I then tried to do a factory reset on the NAS with the drive installed. It was suppose to update the firmware and then wipe the disk as well to it's format. No dice again as it reported "Corrupt Root". Finally, I called Netgear support and was put into the infinite queue... after about 10mins of no muzak but silence I hung up. One last try before I go an RMA with Newegg and I did the reset process again after AGAIN putting the drive into my windows system and doing a create volume and then delete volume in the disk manager. Put it back into the ReadyNAS... same thing "Corrupt Root". I then executed the factory reset and presto magic! It booted and came online.
Other Thoughts: I have read online that others had similar experience that I had. Can't say that I am so impressed with the startup experience. I am in the process of transferring over my Dlink NAS contents to the ReadyNAS. Hope the ReadyNAS lasts... my Dlink is great... just slow...READ FULL REVIEW
