Pros: My Dell UltraSharp U2312HM has been with me for several years now and has never given me a problem. I have shipped it across the Atlantic and across the country by USPS without failure.
The 23 inch size is just about right for 1920x1080 resolution. If you want something bigger you should consider a 1920x1200 monitor.
I love the adjustability of the stand. When I get a bigger monitor I will just turn this one vertically to function as a document display.
The flat display is very good at mitigating glare.
Cons: I'm need more pixels so I will probably buy another Dell UltraSharp and run dual monitors.
Other Thoughts: I should mention that I use the DVI input and it has never given me a problem.
Dell, keep up the good work.
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H75 CW-9060015-WW Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120 MM
Pros: - delta T = 20C compared to stock Intel cooler.
- quiet when not under full load.
- fits in Mini-ITX box
Cons: - introduces water to the inside of your PC
- weak instructions
Other Thoughts: In order to fit this into my box I had to orient the radiator with the hoses on the side, not the bottom. The instructions do not say if this is OK so I just tried it, success so far!
chassis = Sugo SG05 Mini-ITX
motherboard = ASRock z97e-ITX/AC
CPU = Intel Core I7 4790K
Pros: features, price, performance
Cons: Often boots without USB ports active.
Other Thoughts: Anytime that I have been running linux and then power down and boot into Windows 7 the USB ports are not working. Nothing is recognized on any of the USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports.
I think this means there is a bug in the BIOS. It looks like the BIOS does not do a complete reinitialization of the USB controllers. I have tried every BIOS setting related to USB but always the same result.
The work-around is to stop the boot process in the BIOS setup screen, then continue to boot into Windows 7. Something about using the USB keyboard in the BIOS setup screen forces USB initializaion and causes the ports to work upon boot-up.
