Sony Optiarc 24X DVD Burner, Bulk Package 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model AD-7280S-0B
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have purchased close to 50 of these drives and not a single one has been problematic. They are quick to read discs and look great in a business environment.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought a Sony CD-ROM about 11 years ago and it was a horrible device. They are much better now than they used to be.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent color consistency, good color accuracy, no input lag, no ghosting, very nice menu system. If you're coming from a TN panel and need something better but don't want to spend a fortune, this is the monitor for you. Otherwise, read on.

Cons: The backlighting! The backlight on this monitor is so bad I'm considering returning it. It's like looking at a cheap TN panel. The right side top and bottom corners have significant bleed through and overall blacks are more gray than anything. For $300 and being IPS, I expected far more than this.

Other Thoughts: Maybe its worth noting that I'm coming from a 24" HP LP2465 IPS screen. It's several years old with a CCFL backlight but the blacks are the darkest I've ever seen and there is no backlight bleeding whatsoever. The color saturation is better than the U2412M also. If not for the unbearable input lag I'd still be using it. Due to its age the corners are starting to yellow, but I'd take that any day over the backlight problems of the Dell. I give it 4 eggs because the backlight is truly the ONLY complaint I have about this screen.

Logitech Z906 500W 5.1 Speakers
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing Speakers 08/13/2011

This review is from: Logitech Z906 500W 5.1 Speakers

Pros: These are BY FAR the best computer speakers I have ever heard. I used to have an older Logitech 5.1 system that gave out and I struggled to find something that sounded as good as those until I got this system. The sound is perfectly balanced, crisp, clean, and loud. The subwoofer is arguably better than the Polk 10" I use in my home theater setup. I am very impressed with the input options and settings available for tuning the sound as well.

Cons: The price.

Other Thoughts: The low reviews of this system baffle me. I don't know how anyone could possibly be disappointed with the subwoofer, or any other aspect of it. It pounds like no other computer system I've ever heard. I have a Creative X-Fi Titanium sound card and found no need for the equalizer, crystalizer, or CMSS-3D settings. I did boost the treble a little bit (via speaker properties) to suit my taste, but everything else is just perfect. This system is now the standard by which all other speakers I purchase will be judged.
