Pros: This surge protecting power strip was chosen over others for the Recessed On/Off Switch. There was a very similar one from another manufacturer but it's power switch was where one might accidentally kick it under the table and shut off the PC by accident. This one, the APC, can't do that because of the recessed switch.
Cons: The only Con I can think of is that it wasn't free. Otherwise, it provided everything I needed and it gave me peace of mind that my daughter's PC is now protected and safe.
Other Thoughts: When I was trying to decide which surge protecting power strip to buy here at Newegg, (which is almost exclusively where I buy electronics), I only compared three brands - APC, CyberPower, and Tripp-Lite. These three manufacturers are the most reputable when it comes to things like UPS'es so I figured that with that background in other AC protective devices that I could trust them with this too. My advice is to stick with these three companies for Surge Protective Power Strips.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this monitor to upgrade from a smaller monitor. This one is bigger and looks great. Makes my desktop very readable.
Cons: Only Cons is that the power switch, and all the other control switches, are on the backside of the right side of the monitor. This makes reaching them awkward. I would have preferred that they had the buttons on the side of the bezel.
Other Thoughts: I don't use the built-in speakers or headphones jack. I tested them and they work but I have a nice pair of speakers with a headphones jack so that I don't need to use the ones in the monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This hub worked out well, but I found that the USB cable provided was a bit short, so I ordered a longer one from Newegg. All in all, I was very pleased with it.
Cons: Cons: Short USB cable provided. Replaced it with a longer one at an additional cost.
Other Thoughts: In the paperwork that came with the hub, I discovered that the same manufacturer has a similar hub with 10 ports for about the same price, just no charging ports. That will be an improvement for me as I'll have 3 more ports. I don't really need the charging ports.READ FULL REVIEW
