Pros: I have used the WD20EAD green drives in my external RAID enclosure for 5 years and half of them failed so I had to upgrade them to the 3TB drives.
I got one of these as an RMA replacement for my 3TB green drive and I didn't use it until I need the 4th drive for my stripe-mirror setup on my 4X2TB RAID set. Since I didn't have any 2TB WD20EAD's left, I stick this drive in and it works like a charm. I had to upgrade my old RAID controller card's firmware ( 3ware 9650 ) in order to recognize it as a 3TB drive.
Since then, I purchased 3 more of these from newEgg.com to upgrade my RAID to 4X3TB to get that extra space and no issue so far.
They are quiet and doesn't run too hot.
I do noticed that them seem to be faster than the WD20EAD drives ( 5900rpms )
I get about average of 100mb/sec with my 3ware card setup in RAID 0+1 configuration over the home GigE network hubs. I have another RAID 0 setup with WD raptors 500GB drives with 4 disks and 3ware 9750 cards and they get up to 150 mb/sec over the network.
These Intelisync drives are great priced with reasonable performance with stripe and mirror.
Cons: None so far. Price hardly dropped below $130.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KINGWIN HDM-225 Internal 2.5" to 3.5" HDD Metal Mounting Kit
Pros: Decent built quality.
Other Thoughts: With the 5 dollar rebate, this bracket is a steal for less than a dollar or free ( depends on when you got it.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Display port is much better than HDMI output
Great resolution and vibrant colors.
Matte finish which reduced 100% glare.
Completely replaces using the laptop screen for daily usage.
Heavy duty built aluminum back plate holding the LCD. Not flimsy plastic.
Cons: Slight heavy. No speakers
Wsh there more more controls to adjust screen colors/contrast.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy my powerful laptop Envy 15 with 3720qm CPU + AMD 7750m chip + dual SSD + 16GB RAM + this L2291 monitor.
I don't use for gaming but I do use for photo/video and running multiple virtual machines.
Now I don't have to strain my eyes for long term use on the build-in display ( glare and small )
I have been using Display port to DVI adapters to my old LACIE graphic series monitor and it is pretty decent. However, the standard display port monitor seems to be sharper than via adapter ( could be because the resolution is higher on this monitor.)
This is my first Display port monitor and I really enjoy it ( especially for under $80 )
I also use HDMI output with HP HDMI to VGA adapter and it is horrible as the graphic looks dull and connection dectection is unpredictable. Sometimes gets the picture and sometimes it fails to output to display.
