Dell S2230MX Black 21.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Nice monitor for full HD without being too large 12/01/2012

This review is from: Dell S2230MX Black 21.5" 5ms (2ms GTG) Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 8,000,000:1 (1000:1)

Pros: Full 1080P
Clear picture
Has been good for both videos and games
Doesn't take up a huge amount of desk space
Perfect size for the distance it is from my desk chair.

Cons: Seems to take a little longer to detect a video signal and start displaying than my previous dell lcd. I even set the input to dvi instead of auto thinking that was the issue. If I want to get into bios setup during POST I have to start pressing hte key prior to waiting until I see the post screen or I'll miss the window. Also does it once I'm in Windows.
Not enough of an issue to reduce my rating of the monitor though, more of a slight nit-picky annoyance than an issue.

5 out of 5 eggs New life for a Dell Inspiron 1000 06/02/2012

This review is from: CORSAIR 1GB 200-Pin DDR SO-DIMM DDR 333 (PC 2700) Laptop Memory Model VS1GSDS333

Pros: For some reason Dell claims the Inspiron 1000 can only accept a 256MB dimm, for a total of 512. Well I saw some posts online of successes adding a full 1GB dimm so I decided $30 was worth the chance. Working fine so far, both BIOS and Windows show over 1.2GB, Windows shows a little less due to the memory being shared with the onboard video.

The laptop is noticeably faster now and since it is really only used for web browsing $30 on more ram was a much better solution than buying a new laptop.

Cons: Serious answer: none
Joke answer: it didn't magically make the celeron a better cpu ;)

Other Thoughts: No idea why all of Dell's documentation says this model maxes out at 512
I guess so that back in the day when this model was new people that wanted more ram would step up to the next model line so dell would make more profit, and people looking to upgrade a couple of years down the road would buy a new laptop instead of more memory

Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g Wireless Broadband Router up to 54 Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Has the increased ram and flash to allow 3rd party firmware

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: My existing WRT54G was one of the later revisions that had less ram and flash capacity. It works fine but I wanted to experiment with 3rd party firmware (technically I could have installed a stripped down one but in that case might as well run stock) so when I heard Linksys had come out with the WRT54GL I bought one. I'm running DD-WRT and it works great.
