This review is from: Nippon Labs HDB-25351 2.5" HDD/SSD Aluminum Mounting Kit
Cons: Mounting of SSD's is such that only straight-in SATA or power connectors will work. In particular SATA power connectors that have the wires coming out the side (which is a lot of them) either do not fit at all or have to be forced such that the SSD connectors are dangerously stressed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Picture quality is great. I would second all the things other people have said about it. If you only use one input it rates a 5.
Cons: Using multiple inputs is a pain. Switching inputs requires 7!! keystrokes just to get to the point where you can select an input and then 1-3 more to actually select the input. This is not a problem as long as only one input unit at a time is powered on. In that case it will switch to the powered unit automatically. But if you want to switch between 2 or 3 units (such as computers) that have to remain on it's a problem. Also, for HDMI, you also cannot just plug in a unit that is already powered on. It can appear that one or both HDMI inputs is not working. See below for a procedure to get it to recognize both hdmi inputs.
Other Thoughts: This is the procedure that I had to go through to get it to recognize 2 different computers on the 2 HDMI inputs. (This may well apply to other types of equipment as well.)
Power down and disconnect both units that are to be connected. Connect the first unit and power it up (a Restart doesn't seem to work, it has to be truly powered down and the other unit has to be physically disconnected). You should then be able to use that input.
Power down and disconnect the first unit, then repeat the procedure with the second unit. At that point you can reconnect and power up the first unit and you should be able to select either unit.
I tried a lot of other things and it always appeared that one or both HDMI inputs were not working until I followed the above procedure exactly.
This procedure is probably required to get HDCP handshaking working properly but I don't know whether it is due to the HDCP spec itself or a poor implementation of it by Acer.
