WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Needed a new HDD for my laptop, this fit the bill. Cheap, super fast. Not as fast as an SSD, but I didn't need that fast. Works like a champ with 3 partitions (dual boot Windows 7/Xubuntu, and a storage partition). I had no issues with the drive when setting up the partitions.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Uses more power than my old drive. Not a con, just something to note when moving from a 5400 RPM drive to 7200 RPM drive.

ViewSonic VA2431WM Glossy Black 23.6
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good picture quality, crisp image both with dark blacks and bright whites. I have it for over a year and haven't gotten a stuck pixel yet.

Cons: Some saturated pixels at the bottom and sides, not a big deal but that's why I dropped an egg.

Other Thoughts: I use this this mainly for browsing the internet and watching movies. Great quality for movies (and games I would presume), the blacks are darker than most LCD's I have seen, and the whites are still crisp as well. Very easy on the eyes, I can stare at the screen without my eyes starting to hurt at all. I plugged in the speakers just to try them, I didn't think they were terrible but I would still recommend getting different speakers. Lack of HDMI was a minor inconvenience, but a cheap HDMI to DVI adapter took care of that. Even on VGA I thought the quality was still pretty good. Over all a very good monitor.
