Acer H243Hbmid 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I had been looking for a larger display for a while but the prices always seemed to make me balk. Bought this one when on sale for $200 shipped. Great deal indeed. Good color after calibration. Not the first hint of trouble yet. I love the touch controls. Makes input switching a breeze. I have my Mac Pro and Xbox 360 patched into this monitor and it's more than up to the task.

Cons: Nothing yet. Hopefully nothing until I decide to upgrade again

Other Thoughts: Going from a 4:3 17" Apple Studio Display, it's like doing design work on a football field. Comparing the two side-by-side this monitor is a pretty decent upgrade. It absolutely required calibration but I expect that with any monitor. A height adjustment capability would have been nice but not a necessity in my use. I pulled off the supplied support so I could use an aftermarket mount. Relatively light in weight.

4 out of 5 eggs Functional, lots of connection options but a wee bit pricey 02/25/2009

This review is from: macally G-S350SUA Aluminum 3.5" SATA USB & 1394 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Solid chunk of aluminum casing for the skin. A whole mess of connections on the back which can come in handy when/if I decide to tote a whole bunch of movies around with me while on the road. Keeps my music and movie drive in a durable enough package.

Cons: I just wish the price were a bit lower. Plunking down $40 for just a case I like plus the money for a drive to put inside makes other ready-to-go external drives a bit more attractive. No real savings but I do like how the case looks and is constructed. Price knocks half an egg off the rating but I didn't see an option for 4.5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I noticed the loose fit others have commented on. I have the two screws tightened fully but I can hear the sled the drive bolts to kind of rattling around on the rails. Not really a distraction unless you are placing your drive on a washing machine that is loaded out of balance. I think that's the only way I would be able to hear the rattle. As it sits on top of my G5 it's a pretty silent piece of kit. I'll buy more but I'm keeping my fingers crossed on a lower price.

Verbatim 700MB 52X CD-R LightScribe 30 Packs Spindle Disc Model 94934
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Seems to be good enough 12/16/2008

This review is from: Verbatim 700MB 52X CD-R LightScribe 30 Packs Spindle Disc Model 94934

Pros: Not a coaster at all in the 30 I've burned so far. Solid performer in LiteOn drives.

Cons: No coasters. What am I supposed to put my beer on?

Other Thoughts: I've been mostly a Fuji media user for the past few years and it seems like every time I stray from that I'm the one getting burnt. But Verbatim has remained in the media game for a long time (still have some old 5.25" floppies with the brand on 'em at home) so they must be doing something right. At least it's not Memowrecks.
