basic features at a basic price.
Cons: LED cable could have been routed better
Other Thoughts: Installed two of these into an Antec 900 case with a Gigabyte 990FX main logic running ESX 5.1. One of these is connected to a PERC 6 raid card (4 SATA drives, RAID 5), the other is connected to the SATA ports on the mainboard supporting 5tb drives. No operational issues with either.
Mounted this with the drives flush to the front of the case to leave more room (normally they are recessed in about 1/2 inch).
Other reviews have complained that the connectors are on the wrong side (motherboard side) making it hard to reach the connectors once installed. The advantage to this is that the fans stick out the farthest. If those had been on the motherboard side, there would be a greater chance of hitting the main board.
INSTALL NOTE: There is a cable for the LEDs that runs from the back of the unit to the front. This cable has some slack and can snag things on install/removal (tabs on the case drive slots). You can temporarily pull this cable into the enclosure to take up this slack (pull the trays).
Pros: Very nice image, have not located any dead pixels.
Cons: Received with bad LCD driver board
Other Thoughts: Very fast shipping. Most of it must be by air. Beat by several days the video card I ordered at the same time from Newegg that shipped from the west coast.
The display arrived with an intermittent flicker. After a few weeks of emailing back and forth, they sent me two internal parts, LCD driver board (backlight) and a cable that ran from the display panel to the main processor board. These resolved the issue.
The frustrating part of this process is the time zone issues. I live on the US east coast. Every email required an overnight or longer wait.
Internally, the panel itself has an LG sticker on it.
It has two little speakers, but I have not connected them.
Other Thoughts: Purchased 11 drives (RAID and hot spare). Have run non stop for the last year in a Dell T620. No issues.READ FULL REVIEW
