Pros: 2ms response, anti-glare w/flat black bezel, price, gets bright
Cons: height non-adjustable, I have some light bleed on the left side of my display
Other Thoughts: I did run some videos/tests designed for stress testing displays, during those there's some occasional ghosting but it's minimal, real world use there's none that's noticeable. I do have some light bleed along the left side of my panel, it's minimal (~1/16") but it's there. The blacks aren't great but that's the trade-off you get when purchasing a TN panel for its response time, it's great for gaming but it isn't the best for movies. I can lean 8-10" either way before there's any significant color shift. Since owning this monitor I've been playing the Battlefield 1 beta and it's performed wonderfully.
This display is in the same price bracket (or lower) as 5ms displays. It has its issues but the pros outweigh the cons. I like how this monitor has an internal power supply vs a bulky AC adapter as well, it includes a standard 3-Conductor PC power cord.
This review is from: Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1D)
Pros: Inexpensive, good quality, fast reads
Cons: writes are slow
Other Thoughts: The drive is great if you plan to store specific files on it for accessing when you need them. However, if you're looking for a drive you'll be writing to regularly, this drive lacks when it comes to writing speeds. In my case, I have the files I need on it so the only speeds I'm concerned about are its read speeds since it's essentially a read only drive. In fact, this drive is both larger and has faster reads than the Corsair drive it replaced. Here are my CrystalDiskMark (5.1.2) results:
Seq read: 133.3
Seq write: 29.92
4k read: 12.560
4k write: 0.151
If you plan to regularly transfer new movies to this drive or some other type of heavy writing, you'll want to up your budget a bit. If you primarily need the drive for reading files, it's not only less expensive than the other options but it performs with/better than them too. I wish its write speeds were a little faster but I write to it so seldomly that it's a great option/well worth the cost.
This review is from: Linksys CM3008 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (8x4 Bonded channels)
Pros: it's small, fast, you'll save $ every month
Cons: It gets warmer than the Comcast modem this replaced but it functions fine
Other Thoughts: I only have a 75Mbps connection but this modem functions as it should giving me my rated speeds. Functionally, I see no difference between this and the modem I replaced. I can't believe I didn't get my own modem sooner, for every 6 months I paid the modem rental fee I could've purchased another one of these.
I put it getting warm as a con but that's probably a side effect of it being so small, which I like. It doesn't seem to cause any harm, it functions just fine and it isn't like it's hot/going to burn you.
This modem gives me my rated speeds without any sort of latency issues. Do yourself a favor, you're wasting money renting a modem from your cable provider. My cable provider has slowly but surely increased my rental fee from $5 to $10 over the years. Paying that $10 each month since the last rate increase costs $120 each year when you can own this outright for much less than a single year's rental fees. It was easy to get this modem activated/online and it has been functioning perfectly for over a week. It's a great product.
