This review is from: AOC e2752She Glossy Black 27" 2ms (GTG) Widescreen LED Backlight Slim Monitor, 300 cd/m2 20,000,000:1, VESA Mountable, Embedded Screen+ Software, Earphone Audio Port, VGA and 2 HDMI
Pros: Cost vs size and functionality are all good.
Cons: The color quality is washed out looking. I have tried many different settings to improve it but sadly the best I can make it is a washed out looking display. I goes from kinda washed out to really bad, that is the range no matter what I try. I have a 23" Acer monitor that this was replacing and it has beautiful color when compared. I was in the middle of a move when I bought it and didn't get a chance to hook it up until more than 30 days after I bought it. Never had a problem on newegg with a monitor before so I thought it would be safe.
Other Thoughts: Open up the monitor and test it out immediately after purchase. If you get a good one then this is a good deal. I will be giving this to charity as a tax write off, wouldn't feel good even selling it to anyone second hand. Also, the monitor was shipped in it's own thin little box with no other protection, the box was crunched a little and I wonder if that contributed to this being an under performer. Newegg usually packages stuff better.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cost, size, fast shipping.
Cons: Where to begin... I bought one of these as a backup for an aging unit from a different manufacturer I've had for nearly 4 years now. I figured since this one is new and probably faster so I will make the old one my backup. The main device I need this to connect to is an AT&T Unity wireless mobile Broad band device broadcasting at wireless N speeds. After installing the driver and the connectivity utility it connected with great signal quality but no internet connectivity or sporadic internet but mostly no internet. I tried connecting it to my work "guest" wifi at wireless G speeds and it connected fine, no issues at all. My old device and several other devices connect to that AT&T Unity device just fine so I thought, maybe its a defective unit so I had it RMA'd. Waited a week or so for the replacement and it had the exact same issues. So I thought I would bring it home and use it on my home Cisco router based network to replace one of my aging devices at home. Again, the exact problem on 3 different computers trying to connect to my wireless N Cisco router network at home. I have several other devices that connect to both of these networks fine without any issues. I have been in government IT tech support since 1995, connecting wireless devices is not rocket science nor should it be. My conclusion after troubleshooting 2 different devices is that they have a manufacturing or driver based defect that prevents them from being compatible with multiple wireless routers broadcasting at wireless N speeds. I will be sending this one back out of principal not because I'm out the $10 I paid for it.
Other Thoughts: These units are incompatible and unreliable, do not buy.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ORICO 2595US3-BK 2.5" Tool Free USB 3.0 HDD Enclosure (Black)
Pros: This thing looks good, performs well and is super easy to slide 2.5" drives into. No external power needed.
Cons: I haven't run into any cons yet
Other Thoughts: I got this on sale for $16.99 and so far I have been very impressed. I have several 2.5" drives laying around and this was just what I needed to make use of them in my various systems around the house.READ FULL REVIEW
