Pros: Convenient, compact, lots of ports, usable for charging MP3 player
Cons: Loses connections intermittently when used with a MacMini. Have repeatedly had to unplug and replug USB keyboard to get it to recognize. Happens erratically when the Mac goes to sleep or is turned on. Usually removing the USB cable from the hub does the trick, but one recent time I had to restart the Mac to establish a connection to the keyboard. Some trouble with mouse and USB external drives, but the big problem is with the keyboard. This is an intermittent problem, a flaky connection, which can be maddening. Not limited to one port; sometimes switching ports helps, but sometimes it doesn't.
Other Thoughts: This feels like it may be a manufacturing flaw in this device, but it could be a design flaw.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great screen. I moved up from a 22-inch display to make type more legible on screen, and the larger screen is great for that. It also gives me more screen real estate, so I can work on two documents at once. Plugged into my MacMini and ran easily once I figured out the instructions. Now that it's up and running, I'm still fiddling with adjustments, but generally happy.
Cons: Worst instructions I have seen in years. The only directions in the box were on a single folded piece of paper slightly larger than the screen which contained tiny type in 31 (I counted) languages. When I finally found the English version, the details were sketchy and incomplete, missing vital details on what the controls did. The pushbutton controls are cumbersome, hard to identify (visually) on the frame, and non-intuitive to use. You need a manual to understand them, but the only manual is online, not packaged with the monitor.
Other Thoughts: I am a freelance writer, and bought this monitor to make my work -- largely with documents and the Web -- easier on my eyes. It does that well, but the set-up instructions were painful to read and the adjustment controls are hard to use.READ FULL REVIEW
