This review is from: Silverstone PP06B-3PER10F Sleeved 3x Peripheral-4pin + 1x floppy-4pin Cable
Pros: Bought this for a SEASONIC power supply in the hopes that it would work because I couldn't find any SeaSonic cables and needed some.
Works like a charm, sturdy cables with quality sheathing.
Cons: No cons.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Pro 9000 2.0 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam
Pros: Honestly I can't speak much to the pros as my primary computer runs Win7, although I'm sure it is a decent webcam when it works.
Cons: I originally got this cam for a WinXP machine, for which it worked fine but that machine went out of use shortly afterwards and so I transferred it to my personal machine. I've tried every workaround and trick I could find and I just cannot get this thing to work on my Win7 machine. I read that others have gotten it to work under Win7, but there are also many others who are in the same boat as me. If you are buying this and expect to use it on a Win7 machine - be ready to wrangle with drivers and workarounds.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: No dead pixels, default configuration was almost perfect for me.
Contrary to what others have said in this forum I think the screen controls were very easy to handle.
Obviously, the price. This looks like it is one of the best bangs for the buck of the monitors Newegg sells.
Cons: Believe it or not, this is the very first non-CRT monitor I've ever bought. I had several old CRTs I used to use but my last one died last week and nowadays LCD is the most efficient option. So my opinion comes from not just a new monitor, but from a switch from CRTs to LCDs.
The first thing I noticed is that colors and small details are less clear on this monitor. I am sure it is like this with all LCDs, and I knew about this ahead of time - but just sayin. There is a noticeable reduction in picture clarity.
I wish the monitor would tilt a bit more. It tilts a bit but not much. I use a mechanical arm to hold my monitor on for ergonomic comfort and flexibility. I have to tilt the monitor downwards because of this and it doesn't quite move enough for me, but this is minor and not unusual I'm sure.
Other Thoughts: The screen is actually very bright. Much brighter than my old CRT. I'm not sure if most LCDs are this bright but I'm not used to it, I had to turn down the brightness but I see this mostly as a plus, as I have more options as to the brightness of the monitor. Also, blackness is VERY clear. This was the only quality increase I noticed above my old CRTs. Black is very black unless you turn the brightness all the way up.
The various built-in modes are interesting but not of much use to me.
I haven't tried nor will I probably use the speakers so I can't comment on that.
