4 out of 5 eggs Good on a budget 11/04/2015

This review is from: IRULU V1S 5" Quad Core Android 4.4 Kitkat 3G Unlocked Smartphone - White

Pros: Replaceable battery lets you go longer without charging if you purchase a second package and saves needing to send the phone to a manufacturer when the battery wears out.
Light weight, slim and stylish casing.
Display is very sharp. Pictures are as good as any modern smart phone twice the price.
Responsive on the home screens and opening and closing apps / loading web pages.

Cons: Did not arrive with version 4.4 of android installed
Too wide for one handed use in my hand, but this is a problem with every 5" or even 4.7" phone. My hand is only 7" long.
I was able to drain the battery much quicker than my Sony Xperia Z3 compact which is the same battery size but 4.6" screen. This phone would last for about 3.5 hours of video or camera usage.
Viewing angles are worse than an iPhone 6 or Xperia Z3 or any amoLED display. They're fine for everyday use but 3 people won't be able to all look at the phone screen and see good color and contrast.
No 5GHz Wi-Fi

Other Thoughts: This would be a great phone for parents who want their kid to have a smart phone but are afraid they will lose it and don't want expensive replacements or insurance.

TP-LINK Archer T9E AC1900 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11b PCI Express

Pros: Setup was a breeze and the adapter feels very substantial and well built due to the heat sink.
Noticeably improved signal strength for my PC vs a 2 antenna single band wireless adapter I had been using. I share Wi-Fi with 3 people and up to 10 devices, using the 5GHz band has seemed to improve dropping of connection on the older devices.

Cons: Still not as fast as gigabit ethernet. However I rarely transfer files on my home network and so the speed potential of either is well beyond that of my internet connection

Other Thoughts: If you cannot or do not want to use wired ethernet this is probably the best wireless speed you can get.

LG 24GM77 Black 24

Pros: Beautiful design
Simple assembly
Bright and sharp text
Blur free motion when set to 120Hz
As quick as any LCD I have ever tested my reaction on and 144Hz makes motion very smooth in games.

Cons: Even with DAS on and 144Hz I had a longer reaction time than a CRT monitor running at 180Hz by 15-20ms.
Colors of fast moving objects bleed in DAS mode. Visible input delays present on the motion 240 modes but the blur IS cleared up.
I live in a studio apartment and the monitor in standby mode blinks the LED all night, even if you turned power LED off in the menus. To turn the monitor completely off, it shines a blinding grey tone across the entire panel first to show the menu.

Pretty confusing to figure out when the different modes apply. Power saving can only be used without DAS. DAS can only be used without motion 240. Picture mode can't be used with Gaming modes. 144Hz (intuitively) can't be used if you want motion 240.
You can get the monitor to do what you want but it will take a few days understanding the menus

Color accuracy, do not buy this for editing images, extensive online shopping for color sensitive items. Just moving your head up and down is enough to slightly change shades. The monitor is wide enough too that images I know should be a solid tone look slightly gradient towards the corner of the screen. Can't take too many stars away for this as all fast gaming LCD panels likely have this problem.
Energy saving mode even on "Low" causes whole screen shifts of brightness that are annoying.

Other Thoughts: This was my first LCD monitor since using a high end CRT monitor the past 10 years. People who are comparing it to other LCDs will likely feel better about it.
