Acer G6 Series G246HLAbd Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice size and beautiful matte screen display. Color vivid and clear.

Cons: I use this monitor directly facing it at eye level and without a rather hokey homemade pedestal to set the monitor on I wasn't able to adjust it sufficiently downward to get the correct viewing angle. Only one egg off for that minor inconvenience. Also as in all of these type monitors the screen adjustment controls aren't the easiest to access and use.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why manufactures don't supply a secure and adjustable stand for adjustment of the proper viewing angle- especially on a monitor with this visual quality.

WD Blue WD1600BB 160GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I needed a low price drive for an Ubuntu 14.04 installation and this filled the need nicely. Packed in a bubble cocoon which really protects spinner drives nicely. Came wrapped and sealed in an anti-static plastic bag. Looked new but it definitely wasn't. I suspected high hours and wasn't surprised to discover it had a tad over 5-1/2 years runtime to it's credit and very few stops and starts. With WD quality what it is this drive is just getting it's second wind I would venture to say. SMART indicated no problems at all and I encountered none. Drive is running perfectly at a cool and quiet temperature of a mere 84 degrees.

Cons: Nothing about the drive is a con but I sure wish people who wrote reviews would at least proof read their posts and use spell check- BEFORE hitting the SUBMIT button. Even if their grammar is atrocious at least the words could be correctly spelled. I don't think that would be asking too much and hey, you never know, it may become a habit!

Other Thoughts: If you're needing a reliable ATA drive for an older box you would be hard pressed to find a better drive than this. For only about $15 with free fast standard shipping.

Vantec 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Well made and works good for bench testing and transferring data on HDD's Combinations are numerous.

Cons: Nada

Other Thoughts: Caught this on sale for about 1/2 off regular price so couldn't pass it up.
