This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/16GB)
Pros: Kingston had good Linux support. One of the few manufactures that says so on the package.
I haven't had any issues with their thumb drives, including this one. Works great for what I use it for.
Cons: It might be a little on the slow side but I haven't compared it to other thumb drives. If I cared about the speed, I would have gotten a higher end model anyway.
The transfers seem to run very fast at first but slow done right at the end. I guess something like the data is written to buffer and then written to the flash is going on. Just something to keep in mind if you see a large amount of data transfer quickly and then it takes a while to continue.
Other Thoughts: I usually copy a few files that are a couple of gigabytes in size. It probably takes a minute or two. If you need a faster thumb drive, get one of the higher-end models.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was looking to upgrade to 1920x1080 resolution and these monitors were just perfect. These monitors are large enough at 23" and much less expensive than monitors at 24" inches and higher. Also, the 1ms (GTG) response is nice to have and hard to find in this price range. (GTG is Gray-to-gray response time. Black-to-black response time is probably longer.) I wasn't interested in speaker at first but I changed my mind after hooking up an HDMI cable. Overall, they have been great monitors.
Cons: The monitor turns a bright blue when my computer turns off the monitors and locks the screen. A message appears showing "No Signal Detected" which on other monitors is usually just a small message with a black background. It might be useful when first setting up the monitors but is really annoying anytime it goes to sleep. This happens when I run Linux but I think it happens in Windows as well. I don't think it's a driver issue but it could be.
Other Thoughts: The monitors have a white boarder instead of a black boarder. I thought this would bother me but it's actually been quite nice. The white matches the walls behind my monitors and make it easier to see the screen boarder. I may actually buy white monitors by default next time.READ FULL REVIEW
