Pros: Supports jumbo frames, awesome file transfer performance. 8 port gigabit hub for this price, can't go wrong. Even though it's plastic it features very solid construction, nothing bad about it. Cheaper than the all-metal version, and in most cases I think the plastic one would be all that one would need!
Cons: None. More ports wouldn't hurt of course, but that costs more money!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD SE WD4000F9YZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive
Pros: Have four of these drives in RAID 10 in a Synology DS412+. Great performance, loads of space, long 5yr warranty, made for NAS environments... have had zero problems.
Cons: None! It's not 5TB or 6TB for the same price? Not SSD speeds? What do you expect.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 2560x1600, nice PPI, good port/input selection, built in calibration mode looks awesome, runs very cool, don't notice a scanline/crosshatching problem, AG coating is awesome, matte finish, no dead/stuck pixels.
Cons: When the screen is lit but all black (or mostly black), the IPS glow is noticeable but not a dealbreaker. Trying to sit at certain angles/distances can help but can still be noticeable. If there's colors on the screen it's fine.
I haven't encountered any temporary burn in like my Lenovo X220's IPS screen.
Sometimes the screen will lock up when shutting my computer off. Instead of entering standby mode, the panel stays lit. Touching the power button / other buttons and nothing happens. Hold the power button and the lights flash and the screen powers down. Hitting the power button again it will turn on and properly enter standby mode.
Resuming from standby mode also isn't 100% successful. Sometimes when turning on computer it will power up but never display a picture. Sometimes it will display a picture but the current input icon will stay overlaid on the top right and the buttons will be unresponsive.
VERY RARELY I've seen weird artifacting on the screen (only 2-3 times, and resolved by power cycling the monitor). It looks almost like the video card memory flaking out but I'm sure it's the monitor.
I've heard newer revisions of the monitor will fix some of these problems but I'll do that months from now when ALL the kinks have been ironed out.
Other Thoughts: I came from using a WFP2407-HC so this is quite a step from an S-PVA 1920x1200 screen to IPS 2560x1600. My video card is a 9800GTX. I hear using DisplayPort can solve some of the cons I have with this monitor. We'll see if and when I buy a GTX TITAN.
PVA panels do have some nice advantages over IPS and I wish they were still more popular (or if there were some 30" PVA panels).
