Gateway KX2703bd Black 27
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: See my previous review.

Cons: See my previous review.

Other Thoughts: I forgot to mention the nice monitor package does not include a DVI cable. Only a D-Sub/VGA cable is provided. So, if you don't have a spare lying around, make sure you order one because you don't want to try and run this nice monitor with the included D-Sub (VGA) cable.

Gateway KX2703bd Black 27
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Color purity across the entire screen.
Excellent text reproduction, crystal clear.
Movies look nice but this is mainly used for business.

Cons: 1. No installation CD for monitor driver.
2. Downloaded the driver from Gateway and it is not digitally signed; however, they offer instruction on how to disable windows driver enforcement to get the driver installed. My advice is to forget the driver because the Windows PnP drivers works just fine.
3. Power on light is way too bright!
(see other reviewers comments). I contacted Gateway support and they offered no advice nor were they aware of this issue.

Other Thoughts: I had an overall ousy experience with Gateway (now Acer) support. They can hardly talk English and they are not technically oriented either. Thank goodness I didn't really need them.

4 out of 5 eggs Fixing Issues After the 8.1 Firmware Upgrade 12/25/2013

This review is from: Orico 6619US3-BK 5Gbps Super Speed USB3.0 to 2.5" & 3.5" SATA Hard Drive SSD / HDD Docking Station (Black)

Pros: Stable USB 3.0 operation after the firmware upgrade and a few other tweaks.

Cons: See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: @ Nick (previous poster): Do the following to possibly correct your periodic disconnect issue. First, assign a unique drive letter to your new docking station. I used "Z" for mine. Apparently, if you allow it to select a default drive letter, it can create a conflict with outher USB devices. Second, go into device manager and delete the bad profile that was created when the dock first malfunctioned. To do this, you must show hidden devices. I believe these two things will fix your issue. Also, make sure to reboot. Good luck.
