Acer K242HL Bbid Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Price

Cons: - Not sure how I feel about the stand
- Color settings are basically non-existent

Other Thoughts: Bought this monitor for work (programming/schematics). It is a great monitor with just a few cons. The stand just pops into the monitor. There is no screws or anything to secure it down. Maybe this isn't an issue, but this is the first monitor I've had like this.

Also the color settings leave much to be desired. There is nothing wrong with the color out of the box, and there are a few different settings (eco, graphics, movie, etc.) but they don't really give you must choice about setting any settings other than brightness and contrast. It's a slight color difference between my other monitors, but it isn't terrible. Just be forewarned if you're funny about these things and aren't using all of the same type of monitor.

Overall, these cons weren't worth taking off an egg, especially for the price that I paid, and I would certainly buy another one of these again.

5 out of 5 eggs Good way to add another display 05/11/2015

This review is from: Diamond BVU165LT USB External Video Display Adapter

Pros: - Price compared to others
- Speed/resolution of supported monitors

Cons: - Only DVI and USB2.0 (not really cons though at this price)

Other Thoughts: I bought an extra monitor for work but my laptop only supported 2 external displays. This allows me to drive a 3rd 1080p display. I mainly do text based programming so this device isn't being used for graphically intensive work. This adapter was the best priced for the good reviews it had. Other ones with 4-5 star reviews were going for $60+. It was hard for me to justify that, so I figured I'd try this one (especially since it was on sale). Glad I did.

There is no lag that I can tell. However I did do some testing to see how it operated with something like HD video. I pulled up youtube and tried to watch some 1080p60fps videos. It would stumble through this if I had it set to full screen. It wasn't terrible, maybe dropping down to 20-30fps, but it was noticeable. You can still watch videos clear and at a decent framerate if you don't watch them full screen.

None of this bothers me as I'm using it for work. It's certainly not a con, but something that people should be aware of. Overall I'm thoroughly satisfied.

G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Working flawlessly for 3+ years

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: I originally purchased this memory for a work computer. Naturally after buying my own stuff, the company furnished me with a better laptop so I didn't need the one I just built. Took that machine and it's now my main HTPC. It has been powered on for 3+ years (with the exception of maintenance/power outages/etc.) and haven't had an issue.
