Pros: This monitor was perfect when I took it out of the box. The color, clarity and contrasts are excellent and better than several other quality, top brand, smaller LCD monitors that I use daily. I am using the DVI input. Both DVI and VGA cables are included. This monitor is used for Biz applications such as desktop publishing, accounting, databases, etc. so I can't comment on it's use for gaming or other uses.
As noted you can use this monitor in landscape or portrait mode which may be useful for graphics folks. The height and tilt are good and the stand substantial. I bought this model without speakers because I prefer and have quality desktop speakers. The power saving feature seems to work well.
This model LG monitor is advertised as a "commercial" model vs. a "consumer" model. It's difficult to get accurate info. as to what the differences are but it was suggested that the power supply and screen may be better on the "commercial" models. I do not know if this is true but I did notice a substantial weight difference between similar sized LG consumer models vs. this 24MB35P model, so perhaps the power supply is more robust?
This is an IPS panel screen and the side viewing angle is excellent as well as the 5ms response time. The response time and screen quality are noticeably better than the conventional Samsung/NEC LCD monitors I also use daily. the anti-glare treatment seems to work well as it is exposed to sunlight and still looks crystal clear.
The increase in screen size provides me a much better working area for multiple programs/windows. The larger type size and 1920 x 1080 resolution are much easier on the eyes too. I don't experience the washed out data entry boxes that I have had with other LCD monitors so there is a lot to like about this larger monitor size in addition to the increased screen clarity over the smaller conventional LCD monitors that I use.
Based on my initial experience with this monitor I'd rate it a "10". If it proves to be reliable then I have certainly got my money's worth. I'd recommend this monitor to other folks based on my initial results.
Cons: Does not have an HDMI or Display Port port
Other Thoughts: It wasn't free.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech MX310 MX 310 MX-310 Wired 6-Button Optical Wheel Mouse
Pros: The price was fair, not great and if the mouse was sized properly the operation would be OK but not great. The buttons are not crisp like prior model Logitech mice. This is another Chinese reject model.
Cons: This is a SMALL mouse and does not fit your and properly unless you have a very small child sized hand. As such you can only operate it with your fingers, not with your palm or forehand as intended by design for mice.
Other Thoughts: Do NOT buy this mouse unless you want an undersized mouse for a very small hand.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a nice quality AMD mobo. Asrock has really upped their game in the past five years and IME their mobos are as good as any mobo being sold to consumers.
This board is packed with all the latest goodies and cheap as dirt compared to most other mobos. Asrock uses top quality components and mobo designs which makes for excellent performance and reliability IME.
Cons: It takes more than a owner's manual to properly install a mobo and build a reliable PC.
Four year college degrees in PC building aren't included.
Other Thoughts: Not everyone has the technical expertise to be building a modern PC and to set all of the BIOS settings correctly to enjoy P95 stability. As a result you read reviews where people falsely believe the new mobo they just bought is DOA when in fact it is not. Every single mobo is tested before it is boxed and shipped so unless there is obvious physical damage to the mobo, any problems are usually installation and BIOS issues, not a defective mobo.
Some folks would be better served to have a pro build them a PC or buy a Dell. That's the truth unfortunately. Most of the open box goods for sale were returned by PC enthusiasts who lack the skills to properly assemble a PC. They just keep guessing and sending perfectly good, new products back to Newegg because they don't have the knowledge to figure out what they are doing wrong.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
