Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Super fast read/write on SATA III. Capacity for price is excellent on Win7 ultimate build. Kingston has some of the most physically attractive SSDs out there. The casing with the brushed aluminum and accent colors looks very nice.

Comes with a nice metal mounting bracket as well for use in a 5.25" bay.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Always had great experience with sandforce controllers on SSDs. This Kingston is no different. Overall a great SSD!

FREMO P52 5200mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad Air, mini, Galaxy S5, S4, Note, Galaxy Tab, Nexus, HTC One, One 2 (M8), PS Vita and other Smartphones and Tablets (made by SCUD)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: While the market for portable power banks is generally static, the SCUD P52 does edge out the competition on a number of small fronts that makes it a worthwhile contender and worthwhile your consideration. With the capability to deliver hold 5200 mi1liampere-hour (mAh) of power, output current at 1.5 amperes, and its small size, the P52 can recharge your mobile devices with ease.

The P52 is housed in a sturdy and fingerprint resistant aluminum casing with a micro-USB input/charge port, a regular USB output/discharge port, a power button, and 4 small LEDs. It measures roughly the length/width of a deck of cards and about thickness of a cigarette pack. A small flat USB male to micro-USB male cable is included and can be used to charge the P52 and discharge the P52 if your device uses a micro-USB connection (or you're using an appropriate USB-to- whatever you require adapter).

The P52 can be charged with the provided micro-USB cable connected to a powered USB port on a computer or with any AC adapter. You can use any micro-USB you desire if you find the length of the provided cable inadequate (it appears to be roughly 8 inches in length). Any USB-capable AC adapter can be used to charge the P52. Because the output/discharge port of the P52 is standard USB you can use any USB cable to charge your device (apple proprietary cables included). This truly makes the P52 a universal power bank.

The round power button is pressed to turn the P52 on and off. The 4 LEDs indicate charging status and charge remaining while the unit is discharging. They are not overly bright and give a quick visual indicator of roughly the power level of the P52 and/or its charging status.

The P52 will automatically start charging once it is connected to a device and will automatically turn itself off when the device is fully charged.

Cons: Cables in the box only include the short micro-USB cable. It would have been nice if SCUD would have provided a longer cable and/or some common adapters to use with this supplied cable (mini-USB, apple proprietary, etc.); of course, this would raise the cost of the unit overall. Moreover, with the ubiquity of USB cables of many types and lengths available in the marketplace for such low cost this overall does not warrant the loss of an egg in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: In my testing I was able to fully charge my Galaxy S3 to 100% two times, and the remainder of the power bank gave me 58% phone charge before being completely discharged. Of course, the number of times and/or percentage charged for your device will vary depending on the receiving units battery life, capacity, temperature, use, etc. But the 5200 mAh capacity of the P52 should give most modern smart phones at least 2 full charges plus a little extra based on the current smart phone battery technology and capacity being deployed today.

Overall, the small size, nice aluminum casing, and amount of power delivered for the price is hard to beat versus other similar power banks with the same capacity. This power bank is a great value for one who requires an extra few charges to a smart phone or other battery powered device. Great job SCUD!

LG 25UM64-S Black 25
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The LG 25UM64-S is an ultra-wide 25” IPS monitor; ultra wide meaning the aspect ratio is 21:9. This means there is an incredible amount of horizontal pixel space as compared to the vertical pixel space. This equates to a max and recommended resolution of 2560 x 1080. One can equate this single monitor as having the screen real estate space of two monitors jammed into a single housing sans the center bezel area that a dual monitor solution would give you.

Since the 25UM64-S is using IPS technology the colors are vibrant and full, and the blacks are nice and black with no apparent edge bleed across all viewing angles. The panel itself is a matte finish which greatly reduces glare on the screen. In both natural bright lighting and bright artificial lighting the monitor maintains color vibrancy with no wash out. Excellent results are also encountered in dim or dark rooms. The bezel surrounding the IPS panel is quite small and gives off a very professional appearance and high build quality.

The 25UM64-S features response times of 14ms (typical) and 5ms (gtg) so performance is quite good in gaming, movies, and related office productivity with no noticeable ghosting effect. These response time numbers are typical for IPS panels of this size, quality, and price. Gaming and productivity tasks all look fantastic on the vast real estate space.

The rear connections are a DVI-D, 2 HDMI, and a DisplayPort option, as well as an audio in 3.5mm jack and a 3.5mm headphone jack. With the many options for input and the included “screen split” software provided you can segment the entire screen space into 4 separate desktops in a 2x2 pattern and switch between them effortlessly. Additionally, you can also use a dual input option to connect any 2 separate devices and view both inputs simultaneously on each half of the screen. The “screen split” software provided will only work on Windows Vista/7/8 and Mac OS computers.

The housed speakers are actually a little more powerful than most monitor/speaker combinations with the 25UM64-S running both left and right speakers at 3 watts (the average is 1 watt). While most people never use the monitor speakers it's nice to have that option there should one ever need it. Moreover, the monitor is VESA compatible (75mm x 75mm), and can tilt up/down between -5 and +20 degrees.

In the box you will receive the 25" monitor, removable monitor stand, power adapter, power cable, and a single HDMI cable.

Cons: LG does not include a DVI-D cable, a DisplayPort cable, or a second HDMI cable. While acquiring each of these cables is very easy and costs very little money it would have been nice for them to be included in the box. A simple HDMI to DVI-D adapter would have been a nice addition as well in order to give customers a wider variety of connectivity options with the myriad of video cards in use with their many connection types. This small con does not warrant the loss of an egg in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: The 25UM64-S is a great option for someone who has very little desk space but still wants a large screen for a lot of screen real estate. The single base footprint on a desk is very small. While the native resolution is 2560 x 1080, the monitor will support all other lower resolutions out there (with black space cropping on the top/bottom and/or sides as appropriate).

A HDMI version 2.0 cable is required to run at an aspect ratio of 21:9. Keep this in mind if you want to replace the included HDMI cable (you want to purchase a longer cable or replace a damaged one, etc.). Earlier HDMI versions 1.0-1.4 do not support the 21:9 aspect ratio.

Overall, you would be hard pressed to find such a large monitor with a 21:9 aspect ratio and high resolution for the price. Well done LG!
