Pros: *Great work space, worth 2 monitors together.
*Great gaming space, most games support 2560 x 1080
*Great movie space, no more black bars on 1080p movies, full display on screen.
Cons: *Promo picture misleading, it shows FULL screen use, in reality there is a 7mm black frame on sides and on top the monitor screen.
*The 1080 vertical feels a little squashed at first but that's due the pixel size, you get used to it.
*Slight noticeably ghosting at first but also get used to it quick
*Dell utility sucks, it attempts to change screen tone every time one switches between applications, disable this and you are golden.
Other Thoughts: Overall, the pros beat the cons with extreme prejudice.
The screen is just beautiful, from gaming, movies and working it all just fits perfectly. When multitasking just have to move a window to the side and no more ALT+TABing all over the list of windows to find your right frame.
Coming from a 22" Samsung this monitor felt a little smaller on the vertical but the pixel size was too different, I got used to it and have not regretted the purchase.
My only heartfelt wish is to see an upgrade from Dell that gives us 2560 x 1440 and 1 or 2 inches taller on the vertical.
I can always dream :)
Pros: *Install was quick and easy.
*Reads pretty much all media.
*Burning speeds is good for BR media.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: After almost a year drive works fine so far, have had experience with previous Lite-On drives where they simply stop working after 1 year or so. As previously posted cheap enough to be able to upgrade now and then.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill 25GB 4X BD-R 25 Packs Spindle Disc Model RMI-SB25I
Pros: *Good burn speed.
*Good surface for permanent marker.
*All 25 B-Ray disks worked. No coasters.
Other Thoughts: Burned entire 25 with Lite-On IHBS112-29, not a single coaster and while disks are rated 4x to 6x they were burned at 10x with Nero Express Essentials.
Disks did survive bed-bug heat treatment at my place, rooms were heated to 150ºF for several hours and disks work great afterwards.
Ordered 50 disk spindle to back up movies and music.
