1 out of 5 eggs DOA - Acer wants me to ship at my cost LOL 09/06/2013

This review is from: Acer G6 Series G246HLAbd Black 24" 5ms Widescreen LED Monitor 250 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (1000:1)

Pros: Nothing, DOA
Oh the wait for Acer tech to pick up was not bad, and their English was good.

Cons: - DOA
- Need to pay shipping on my end to get it to them on a brand new item, wow.. they didn't even suggest I should return to retailer, actually they preferred I send to them still

Other Thoughts: Last Acer thing I buy

Ginsu 04827 14 Piece Stainless Block Set (black)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Average Knife Set 11/25/2010

This review is from: Ginsu 04827 14 Piece Stainless Block Set (black)

Pros: - Looks great
- Comfortable handle
- Seems like a Durable build
- Non-serrated knives are pretty sharp
- Nice scissors

Cons: - Serrated knives (which is most of the set) are horribly dull, takes a lot of pressure to cut anything but boiled eggs
- Storage block is sturdy but nothing special

Other Thoughts: This is my first Ginsu set, and I have NO IDEA what the rave is about on this line of cutlery. I have used Cutco since 1998, and this set is not even in the same conversation as Cutco. I would say all the serrated knives here are almost useless unless cutting my leftover turkey pieces. The straight edged chef's knife is ok, but a little light and flimsy to feel like a serious chef's tool.

Pros: Quality seems just as good as my old 22" KDS, maybe better... kinda nice to have the resolution such that the vert is the same but it is about 1.5" wider, so everything still looks like the same size/ratio except you just have a little more horizontal space, and at full HD. Black actually looks black. I like the DVI-HDMI connection... I hate the screws! And went back to my Fallout 3 on max settings and it actually looked better than my old 22"... it looks amazing, and ghosting is minimal, or as good as it gets for an LCD of today under $500.

Cons: One renegade pixel that turns blue on a black bg and red on a white/yellow bg... with most other colors it just blends it... never heard of this before, but its not bad I guess. I didnt notice it until I was a fool and decided to do a test... we never learn do we.

Other Thoughts: Noticeably brighter than my old one, almost blinded me the first time I pulled up a mostly white window... I guess it is better too bright than dark right? And yes, the edges do lose a little... but I think that's all LCD's if you dont look within a few degrees of straight on, it will lose some quality, and this monitor is pretty wide... over 22" viewable. Then again, if I were more like 3-4 feet away, even that will be less noticeable. And of course I will not even think about testing the speakers, whats the point... I know it will sound horrible compared to my 7.1 Creative Labs setup as do all monitor speakers, unless Bose starts creating miracles with them.
