This review is from: Dell UltraSharp UP2715K 27' LED LCD Monitor - 16:9 - 8 ms
Pros: Incredibly sharp text and high res photos thanks to 5K resolution.
Accurate colors (see reviews and benchmarks).
Best 5K monitor available (see reviews comparing this to other 5K displays).
Nice sound quality.
Cons: Needs a graphics card with two DisplayPort 1.2 ports and Display ID. Make sure you will be able to use this monitor before buying it.
Other Thoughts: If you work with high DPI graphics or prefer extra sharp text, I recommend this monitor, if you can get a good deal on it and if your graphics card will work with it. I am using it with a late 2013 Macbook Pro with discrete graphics (NVidia GT 750M).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT256M4SSD3
Pros: Extremely high performance (by today's standards), and acceptable capacity for me.
Cons: The price is a bit higher than I like to pay for a SSD. In my mind this is offset by the compact size of the drive and its performance.
Other Thoughts: Installed in a 15" Samsung Series 9 (mid-2012). The performance improvement was substantial.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Haier CPRB08XCK-LW 8,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner
Pros: - Lightweight (under 60 pounds, very light for a portable a/c in this class).
- Good performance, kept my 200 sq foot room 20 degrees lower than outside temperatures during hot summer months.
- Easy to maintain
- Bargain price
- Small and nice looking (unlike most portable a/cs, which are bulky and ugly IMO)
Cons: - When outdoor temperature rose above 100, it reached over 80 degrees in my room.
- Only one hose (exhaust.) No air intake hose, so air is sucked out of the room to cool the compressor, which in turn sucks in hot air from outside via cracks in the front door, etc.
Other Thoughts: This a/c is just enough for the moderate desert conditions I live in (which usually stays in the upper 90's during summer months). I leave this thing running 24/7, and my electric bills aren't too shocking. I used a dual-hose 10,000 BTU portable a/c before this one, which definitely cooled more effectively.READ FULL REVIEW
