SAPPHIRE 100924 Active DisplayPort Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Worked great, short lifespan 02/06/2015

This review is from: SAPPHIRE 100924 Active DisplayPort Adapter

Pros: Worked great while it lasted. Simply plug and play

Cons: This unit worked for LESS than 6 months. Product has only a 90 day warranty. That is my fault, as I should have CHECKED the warranty period before purchasing this.

Purchased 08/02/2014
Failed 02/06/2015

Other Thoughts: PowerColor and StarTech both offer the same product with 1 year warranties on theirs. I know which one I will be buying next time.

WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great drive for back up storage, and NAS 08/19/2014

This review is from: WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" NAS Internal Hard Drive - Bulk

Pros: Ordered 5 of these over two orders, got 2, then 3. Currently only 2 of them are in operation, but working great. NONE were DOA. Used WD Data Lifeguard tools to test each one indiviually to ensure no issues.

Cons: None thus far...

Other Thoughts: I jumped the gun on these a bit. I have digitized just about ALL of my entire 300+ DVD and 100+ Blu Ray collection. Using .mkv format, totally uncompressed, files are HUGE!! 25-40 gigs per Blu Ray. Curently the files are residing on a bunch of 2 TB drives, need to migrate them to these for backup. These drives used for backup of photos and home video storage and back up.

End game is to have a rack mountable storgae server built for a network rack in my basement. Server not even built or ordered yet, will be running 5-8 of these drives fro hot swap bays on thr server, likely running ZFS.

ASUS VE247H Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great monitors, using dual setup for home office 08/19/2014

This review is from: ASUS VE247H Black 23.6" 2ms Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 300 cd/m2 10,000,000:1 (ASCR)

Pros: Purchased 2 of these to DRAMATICALLY increase desktop realestate for a home office setup. Previously using a 19" monitor and 15" laptop display as dual setup. This kore than DOUBLED my desktop size.

As noted, used for work, for a technical network helpdesk role. Many applications and windows opened at same time. These allow me to have multiple windows opened next to eachother without having to do the alt-tab juggle between the 25+ differnet things I have open at any given time.

I also have personal laptop connected to HDMI on one for dual display on that with 17" laptop display. Switching inputs is simple and fast, works great. Only game it has been used for is Diablo 3, no issues. Diablo 3 driven from Gateway P-6860fx laptop with 8800mgts graphics.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Debating order 1 or 2 more of these, but not sure the wife will fall for "I need a few more for.... work..... yeah.... work...."
