This review is from: Transcend TS0GSJ25S3 2.5" SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Pros: USB 3.0, UASP support, SATA 3 internal connector, aluminum case to help keep the drive cool, takes power through one USB 3.0 cable.
Cons: Unless it fails, there are none.
Other Thoughts: Can be a tight fit on some drives. Not recommended if you intend to swap drives in and out of this case. This is to put one 2.5" SATA drive in and leave it there. If that's your purpose, this is the one to get.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Planar PLL2210W 22" Edge LED LCD Monitor - 16:9 - 5 ms
Pros: 1080P resolution, sharp colors, clean image, well packaged, LED backlight. The frame is nice as well, and the tilt is sufficient for most uses. No dead or stuck pixels. Very good value for the price.
Cons: Minor: Only a VGA cable in the box. Would be nice if both were included. Absolutely not worth knocking a star off for that.
Other Thoughts: Although I had not been familiar with the Planar brand, I am now, and will be buying more of their LCDs in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good features, decent performance for the price. The front has two USB 2.0 ports, a card reader, and audio in and out ports. The rear has six USB ports, and two are USB 3.0. There is also some display flexibility with VGA, DVI, and HDMI ports. In these days of Windows H8, it is nice that it comes with Windows 7. 4 GB of RAM upgradable to 16, plus a 1 TB drive up front is a good deal also.
Cons: The keyboard is terrible, you can hardly see the letters. They are a faded gray against black matte keys. Expect to replace the keyboard. It's a good thing it still has one of the old-fashioned PS/2 ports on the back, so even if you have a decent old style keyboard lying around, you can still use it. Asus must have bought these keyboards sight unseen and just stuck them in the box. Very shortsighted decision!!! And, by the way, the optical mouse is nothing special either (it feels too light), but at least it works properly.
Other Thoughts: I would have rated this five stars if it wasn't for the keyboard. I wouldn't have knocked off for the mouse. But a keyboard that's hard to read? What were they thinking???READ FULL REVIEW
