ASUS VW266H Black 25.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked fine as a 1920x1280 workstation monitor

Cons: Started locking up if left on while not in use after four years. (Oddly, this coincided with installing Ubuntu 14.04. Perhaps the way that blanks the screen stresses the monitor out.) I now have to press the power off button before leaving, else I have to power cycle the monitor when I get back to it eight hours later. Happens every time.

2 out of 5 eggs Fan making horrible honking noise :-( 02/02/2012

This review is from: PNY VCGGT2201XEB-S GeForce GT 220 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Worked fine for a couple years

Cons: Fan started making horrible honking noise

Other Thoughts: If I had registered within 90 days it would still be in warranty and I could get them to fix it. As it is, I'm going to have to try to fix it myself. It's a sealed fan, so I'm going to have to drill a hole to add oil (as suggested on the nvidia forum under "GeForce 8400GS low-profile fan oiling/lubrication?".

PNY VCG85512GXPB GeForce 8500 GT 512MB 128-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked well for a long time

Cons: Developed nasty fan rattle noise after a few years

Other Thoughts: To fix the fan rattle, remove the fan by unscrewing three screws, remove the sticker on the back of the fan if any, remove the rubber plug, and put two drops of light machine oil onto the bearing.
This was discussed in the nvidia forum in topic "GeForce 8400GS low-profile fan oiling/lubrication".
