Acer G257HL BMIDX Black 25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Monitor looked good, and worked as expected for the first week.

Cons: After one week of working as expected, the monitor developed a flickering issue where it would not display anything, would not power cycle, just sat there with a flickering screen.

Other Thoughts: Acer customer service is a joke. They refused to replace the monitor, only gave me a repair option where I have to pay shipping to send them their defective worthless monitor at my cost, and then wait for it to be fixed before they will send back the same monitor. I'm trying to run a business here and that is not an option. I guess it's back to Dell for real customer service. Thanks for the $200 paperweight.

StarTech DP2HDMIADAP DisplayPort to HDMI Video Adapter Converter - M/F
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: As an adapter to convert a source display port to HDMI, it works great.

Cons: What I wanted was to convert a source HDMI to display port, this it will not do. I purchased one and it wouldn't connect my laptop's HDMI out to a display port on a monitor, after purchasing 4 of them and multiple calls to Startech explaining what I wanted, I finally came to this conclusion. Startech apparently thinks it will, but it doesn't. Zero eggs for tech support, 3 for the product working great as per the pros.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if this was explained better in the product description and more importantly, better understood by Startech's tech support.

MSI GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) DirectX 11 N450GTS CYCLONE 1GD5/OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Large Fan, Runs Quiet.

Cons: Runs a little hot, would have expected cooler temps with the big fan on it.

Other Thoughts: For the $$ this is a decent card, all around it is a solid 4 star item, one egg off for temp and because it is just what you pay for, a low/mid card for a low/mid price.
