This review is from: Dell 1800FP Gray 18.1" LCD Monitor, Off Lease 250 cd/m2 350:1
Pros: this is a good old 18 inch lcd with CCFL backlight and inverter.
i use the dell color driver 1800FP which can be found in various sources.
I primarily use this to watch videos that are from 4:3 dvds or tv captures.
Cons: some models (power supply by LG) have faulty components requiring resoldering or replacements after years of service
you can find a great thread on badcaps dot net
Other Thoughts: i got this for free as a payment for computer services and it has held up to 24/7 usage for 5 years! only very minor issues with it and I am finally buying a 19inch 5:4 to replace it.
I know this display is not sold very often but I felt a review would be good for anyone who found this product and wanted user feedback

This review is from: BOSS Audio 612UA Digital media receiver
Pros: NO CD
Has SD card and USB flash.
I wanted a low end decent "mechless" digital media player for my car to replace the 1990s tape player.
I use an 8gb sd card AND an 8gb usb micro flash disk to play music.
Sounds great, possibly better than the old tape deck.
It has a "tactile" response volume knob that works fine.
At 40 the volume is loud and clear but probally not 90db like an airplane engine.
More than adequate to overpower road noise.
Cons: I got this locally on sale for less than any online website offers.
The fake EQ bars on the screen cannot be shut off while sound is playing but it is under my passenger dashboard so I dont really care too much.
User manual is garbage mostly.
The connection plug uses 18gauge wire for everything and inline fuses on the ACC & Batt wires.
Holding down buttons for a few seconds can be irritating while driving.
Other Thoughts: I dont have an AUX capable player but im sure my friends have some kind of ipod or phone so I dont know the capability of that.
For a 30 minute ride around town or to work this unit performs everything I need it to do.
It is very light weight because there are no mechanical parts inside, it is only a circuit board, housing, face, and heatsink.
CLOCK remains set because of proper *Batt* wiring
Random continues after shutting down the unit
Volume remains at previous level or drops below 20 after restarting
I own a VW (not beetle) so the VW beetle logo in the center doesnt bother me.
