Acer K272HULbmiidp Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Display resolution, brightness, color, etc. very good
No bad pixels or excessive light bleed (accepting that there will be some on inexpensive IPS panels)

Cons: Very light duty stand

Other Thoughts: Requires tomfoolery to work properly with MacOS X - for some reason, is recognized as a television rather than a monitor, which causes text to look grainy because it uses a crippled YCbCr color space instead of a full RGB color space. This can be fixed by forcing the Mac into RGB mode with an EDID override; search for mac rgb monitor override for instructions.

Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Server Memory Model CT2KIT102472BD160B

Pros: It works, which sadly is not a given when talking about various combinations of motherboards, processors and RAM.

Cons: None, really.

Other Thoughts: Using this RAM with:

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCL-F-O LGA 1155 Intel C202 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard

Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 69W BX80637E31230V2 Server Processor

SiliconDust HDHR4-2US HDHomeRun CONNECT 2-Tuner ATSC DLNA/UPnP Compatible Streaming Media Player for Cord Cutters
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works perfectly with MythTV 0.27; tunes basically any channel, any time as long as you set the tuning delay to 5000ms. Good tuner sensitivity. Handy built-in splitter means two tuners with only one cable connection. Signal strength meter actually works!

Cons: Incredibly small and light, with no wall mounting keyholes. Double-shielded coaxial cable lifts the thing up!

Other Thoughts: Only tried it with MythTV, so I can't comment on how it works with eyeTV or WMC. Uses about 50mbs when recording two high-def shows, so plan your network accordingly.
