Pros: Low cost for a monitor of this size. This is going into a closet as a head for multiple systems so there are very few requirements other than connectivity and price. Meets the needs...barely.
Cons: Two areas of dead pixels on first use. one a 2cm crescent shaped area and the second a 2cm horizontal slash. Image appears fuzzy and is not crisp and lacks the expected sharpness of a HANNS Monitor.
Other Thoughts: This is not the HANNS that i know. This is a cheap monitor that lacks any recognized features or value that traditional HANNS monitors have been known for. Spend the extra few dollars and buy a good monitor from another manufacturer. Shame on me for trying to save a few bucks and ignoring previous reviews. This one will remain a closet queen through its usable life and i will not shed any tears when it dies and is added to the scrap heap.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small form factor, Inexpensive, uses off the shelf components.
Cons: Quit working after 1 day. Internal power board failed. This is not inexpensive, it is cheap. Poorly made, and not worth buying. I had modified the case to access the PCI slot so I cannot return. I will salvage the mother board and buy a better case and power supply and try again.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to make a Linux firewall. I did not need high performance so I thought this would suffice. I will buy better quality next time. Cheap does not equal inexpensive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN ZM-CS4A Socket 1366 Clip Support Kit for CNPS9500/9700
Pros: Low Cost. Effective if it works
Cons: Only works on motherboards that allow a screw through the motherboard. The motherboard mount on my Tyan S7020 has screw threads in the motherboard. I cannot blame Zalman for this 100% but i wish they had indicated the mount type more precisely so that I could have checked before ordering.
Other Thoughts: it would be nice to have some standards with mounting. Each manufacturer loosley follows the standard leaving a lot of room for incompatible hardware that "works" on a socket type but is not compatible.READ FULL REVIEW
