Pros: Display:
Since this is an IPS panel the display produces vibrant color and has good viewing angles. The screen is the glossy type as opposed to matte. It is advertised with an anti-glare coating and I must say it does a pretty good job. While it doesn't completely cut the glare, my desk is next to a window and it did not cause many issues or annoyances. I did a dead/stuck pixel test and did not notice any issues in the screen I received. I am an avid gamer and I did not notice much lag or ghosting issues while gaming. When specifically looking I did notice a slight ghosting effect on fast movements, but not to the extent that it would be an issue.

Design and Build:
The overall design and functionality of this display is very good. The design is very stylish and everything, including edges, is clean with very few, if any, imperfections. The top and side bezels are extremely thin, reducing that bulky look some displays have. The stand is actually well constructed for being of a simple design. The display feels sturdy when purposely wobbled. It just feels well built and not cheap in any way.

Controls:
The volume control is a nice scroll wheel tucked under the left corner of the display. I found this to be really nice. Pushing the scroll wheel mutes the built in speakers. The power button is on the opposite corner tucked underneath. The menu options are touch sensitive buttons that illuminate after touching the menu button (that does not light up itself). The touch buttons are responsive and the initial setup involved very little changes. I only lowered the brightness slightly and the rest of the settings were pretty much on cue out of the box.

Audio:
The speakers in this monitor are better than what you would find standard in an LCD with built-in speakers.
Amazing? No, but better than what is in most LCDs today. If you don't intend to have separate powered speakers or just need something decent built in, this will fit the bill pretty well.

Cons: No display port. For a display of this caliber I would expect a display port.

No height adjustment. While the stand is sturdy, I really wish it had height adjustment. I will most likely set this on a book or two in order to bring it to eye level.

MHL did not work. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and supports MHL. The device would charge through the port, but would not allow for screen mirroring. I did some reading and some devices require an 11 pin MHL cable as opposed to 5 pin(included). It would be nice to note this information or include the small necessary adapter.

Other Thoughts: All around this is a very nice display. I would not expect someone to purchase this specifically as a gaming monitor, but rather for more general purposes. I would target this to someone who is doing a lot of desktop work, graphics, or photos. The display is more catered to that need. However, if you will also use this display for gaming, it will do just fine.

I did find switching around Audio to the monitor and other sources was a bit cumbersome. To get the auto input jack to work you have to enable it in the monitor settings. Otherwise it will not work when plugged in. Also, for Audio to work through the HDMI port, I had to set my default audio device in Windows to point to the LCD rather than my sound card. If I wanted to use my headphones plugged in the sound card and not the display, I had to switch this setting back. Just something to keep in mind.

5 out of 5 eggs Great USB 3.0 Flash 08/19/2014

This review is from: ADATA S102 Pro Advanced 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AS102P-64G-RBL

Pros: Sturdy aluminum body which is nice in case you drop or smash it. It should hold up pretty well. Exceeds the 100MB/s READ and 50MB/s WRITE speed listed. This is awesome compared to others that don't always hit their advertised performance. Over all a VERY good drive for the money

Cons: The cap clips on the USB end pretty well, but if you clip it on the back side it's pretty loose. Good chance you could lose the cap at some point if you aren't careful.

Other Thoughts: CrystalDiskMark Performance:

Sequential: 112MB/s READ 58MB/s WRITE
512K: 100MB/s READ 26MB/s WRITE
4K: 6MB/s READ 1MB/s WRITE
4K QD32: 7MB/s READ 1MB/s WRITE

5 out of 5 eggs Samsung SD cards always good 11/18/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG Plus 8GB microSDHC Flash Card Model MB-MP8GB/AM

Pros: I've made it a point to buy Samsung SD and micro SD cards over others. I've never once has an issue and this one was no exception. It properly seated in my card reader and also the Garmin GPS it was intended to be used in. Copying large files to the drive runs about 4-5MBps, which is about right for a Class 4 device.

Crystal mark puts this at 5MBps write and 20MBps sequential read.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used in a Garmin GPS. Worked just as expected.
