This review is from: Acer P224Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 10000:1 (ACM)
Pros: Looks great even at high resolution. No black pixels or other problems. Great price for a 22" monitor.
Other Thoughts: It was packed very well in several layers of foam, foam wrap and clear plastic. I was looking for a comparable to my Samsung 226bw for my wife's computer. I think she may have gotten the better deal!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRIPP LITE B004-VUA2-K-R 2-Port Compact USB KVM Switch w/Audio and Cable
Pros: Works great. I've had it for a week and I am very happy with it. Allows hot-key or button based KVM switching between 2 different computers with ease. Good sized cables (about 6' long). Switching is fairly quick, about two or three seconds which is acceptable.
Cons: VERY MINOR. Cosemetically it has cables coming out of every side, so there is no "nice looking" side to have facing you if you are putting it on a desk within arm's reach so you can switch by button. Since you can switch with hot-keys, this is a minor consideration at best. You can always put a tissue box over it. ;)
Other Thoughts: I needed to go a bit further than the 6' to get the KVM box on my desk. That was more than the cable allowed, so I ended up buying some USB cables for about $5 to get the extra distance I needed. Overall very happy with it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have had a different PQI Memory for my desktop for years and it has worked great.
Cons: Memory can be difficult to understand. Learning how to match memory to your notebook is essential before you buy (see other thoughts).
Other Thoughts: NewEgg has a great "Memory Confgiurator" which will tell you EXACTLY which type of memory fits in your laptop.
All PCs have 4 very important pieces of information that must match to have memory work.
(1) SO-DIMM - small outline dual in-line memory module. This is the number of pins - This memory is 200 pin and will only work in (and fit into) laptops that take 200 pin memory. Check wikipedia for more info on SO-DIMM.
(2) DDR2 - double data rate 2 - Reading: check wikipedia for more info.
(3) Bus Speed - For this RAM 800 Mhz is the speed. This MUST match (or at least not exceed) the bus of your laptop or it will not work. MacBook uses 667 MHz DDR2 memory.
(4) Capacity - For this RAM 4GB. Many older laptops and even some newer laptops only support 3GB. Caveat emptor. Check your manuals for your laptop first to be sure you have the correct memory configuration.
