Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0  Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000101 Silver
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small, fast, USB3.0 speed, silent, powered via USB so no separate cable nor supply

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Backups only happen if they're fast and easy. This drive makes that happen. Spend the money, it's a cheap insurance policy against the agony of a failed hard drive. I bought a second one (different color to keep track easier) and rotate them for additional security.

BenQ GW2750HM Glossy Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Top quality 1920x1080 display
High brightness
Good color balance, including truly "white" whites
No dead pixels
Good assortment of input connectors
Stand is more solid than most
Reasonable menu system

Cons: Stupid advertising screen on powerup, lasts a few seconds
Only cable included was VGA (?!?)

Other Thoughts: Waited for a well-reviewed 27 inch monitor to go on sale so I could have a 27+secondary on both workstation and desktop. This one came available for $179 so I pulled the trigger, and I'm quite happy with the results.

Compared to my other 27 (a Samsung), this monitor is MUCH brighter, has MUCH whiter whites, and FAR better color range/contrast. Might be due to this monitor's VA display, or just because it's more recent overall technology, but the difference is incredible. If I weren't so cheap I'd buy another just so my 27's would match.

Many people complain about the stands on these larger monitors being wobbly. This one is more solid than those on my smaller secondary displays. Is it rock solid? Of course not, but it's more than good enough. Regular typing and other normal activities on the same table causes absolutely zero monitor movement whatsoever.

Brightness is spectacular. It came set to 100% and I had to back it off to 75% just to tolerate it - which I consider a plus, because if I ever need to use this in a bright room for a presentation I know it will be more than up to the task.

It's a little strange that the one and only included cable was a DB-15 VGA cable. Who would ever use a VGA cable for 1920x1080x60Hz? At this price not really a complaint, just an odd choice on BenQ's part.

I tend to keep my user interface components (monitors, keyboards, mice) for a very long time, whereas the computers under them change and upgrade quite often. Thus I'm willing to spend a bit more money on things like monitors because I know I'll be using them for a while. For that reason, I seriously considered going to a 2K or 4K class monitor this time around... until I realized that, when I'm working, I NEVER find myself wishing I had higher resolution. I develop software, plus spend lots of time in Premiere Pro (video editing) and Photoshop (photo editing), yet 1920x1080 continues to be plenty of resolution. I don't game at all, so 60Hz is plenty of refresh rate. What DOES matter to me is screen real estate, and for $179 I don't know of a better deal for 27 inches of excellent monitor.

Highly recommended.
