Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT51264BF160BJ

1 out of 5 eggs Incompatible with Intel Broadwell NUC 03/30/2015

This review is from: Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT51264BF160BJ

Pros: One module can be installed.

Cons: Two modules installed in the NUC causes a memory error.

Other Thoughts: Crucial has confirmed on their site that there are two different versions of the RAM sold in this kit. One version was approved for the NUC and the other is incompatible. If you're a gambling person, buy this kit. If not, buy another brand. It pains me to say that since Crucial was always my go to RAM brand but I can't in good conscience recommend anyone buy this kit with the intention of using it in an Intel Broadwell NUC.

NEC Display MultiSync EA244WMi-BK Black 24” Widescreen IPS Panel, LED Backlight LCD Monitor 6ms 350cd/m2, DisplayPort, USB hub, Height Adjust, Pivot, Tilt & Swivel, Speakers, 3 Year Warranty
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 24", 1920 x 1200, IPS, Good Color, Good Stand, Semi-Gloss Anti-Glare (no graniness!)

Cons: Text and other gradients look a little harsh above 49% contrast, but 49% contrast is just fine and looks natural. Set it to 49% and it's not a problem.

Other Thoughts: The NEC EA244WMI-BK is exactly what I've been looking for: 24", 1920x1200, Good Viewing Angles, Decent Color Accuracy and Semi-Gloss (Some Anti-Glare but not so much that it's grainy or not enough that you see your own reflection). The only other monitor that came close was the Apple 24" Cinema Display which, to be honest, was really overkill for my use and had a glass (glossy) front.

Overall, the NEC EA244WMI is exactly what I was looking for - a Dell U2412M without the grainy/aggressive Anti-Glare coating and an HDMI port to boot for only a little more money.

OCZ Rally2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBR2DC-16GB

3 out of 5 eggs Not the Rally2's of yester-year 09/22/2010

This review is from: OCZ Rally2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBR2DC-16GB

Pros: Dual-channel flash memory, one of the faster USB Flash Drives on the market at a reasonable price.

Cons: This drive does not exude as much confidence as last year's models did. I believe OCZ has switched OEM's for this flash drive. There are lots of cosmetic indicators of this (all of the following are vs last year's model): Lighter weight, feels almost "cheap" light, screen printing on case much lower quality - on mine all of the screen printing is crooked and not properly applied, excess glue on LED end, LED switched from Orange to Blue. Old models had several markings on the USB end that this one is missing and the clear plastic pieces on either end of the drive are squared instead of round. Overall, it appears that the essentials are there but a lot of the attention to detail is gone and that doesn't give me a lot of confidence.

Other Thoughts: OCZ had a real winning design. It's really frustrating when a company comes up with a winning design and then try to squeeze more profit out of that design which ends up ruining the winning design they had in the first place. I get the feeling that OCZ is letting things slip a little...
