Fosmon Nokia Lumia 1520 / Nokia Bandit DURA-FRO Flexible TPU Case Cover
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Charcoal matte backing matches the black Lumia 1520 nicely, while adding a slight sparkle effect under light.
The edge is a shiny tar black color which is easy to grip onto without being overly grabby (eg. sticking to my pocket when trying to insert/remove it)
Inserting the phone into the case is very easy, and the fit is superb. I don't get the impression that it will pop out inadvertently.
The case divides the volume button into two sections, which makes adjusting the volume easier than the rocker switch on the phone.
The case feels quite rugged while still being very thin. The phone doesn't really feel bigger with the case on, (which is good because the Lumia 1520 is quite a behemoth already.)

Cons: The matte section of the case on the back is not the easiest to grip, it slides out of hand a little. (But not nearly as difficult to grip as the naked phone)
Lip surrounding screen is rather shallow so the screen will only lift about half a millimeter above a surface when placed face down.

Other Thoughts: I don't have a whole lot of confidence that this case will protect the phone from a serious fall. But that's what you get when the case is so thin a profile. I mainly wanted to protect my phone from scratches and scuffs. This case aught to perform that function admirably.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Where to begin? These monitors are phenomenal.
I have three of these beauties in Surround/Eyefinity and gaming/whatever has never looked better.
Bone stock, the color and contrast is very good, I didn't bother trying to calibrate them, they look good enough already.
There is no noticeable input lag or ghosting (even with overdrive off).
16:10 aspect ratio is excellent for productivity and is not detrimental to gaming or movies.
Even though this panel uses the least expensive variety of IPS (e-IPS) Dell makes a quality product and it looks great! Colors are brilliant (but not oversaturated) blacks are black (way blacker than my previous TN displays) and even though they don't use a diffuser to even the brighness across the display, the variation across the panel is negligible.
Of the 5760x1200 pixels I purchased, none of them are stuck, or dead. Great quality control!
USB hub works fine (and IS powered) though I don't use it much.
Included swivel-stand is awesome. (But they support VESA too if you want).
Includes D-Sub (VGA), and DVI cables.

Cons: Like all but the most insanely expensive panels, this monitor suffers from IPS glow, where blacks have a grey-ish glow in a dark environment. BUT this can be corrected! See my other thoughts below.
The boxes these are packed in are very large, (to accomodate the swivel-stand).
No DisplayPort cable is included.
The viewing angle is acceptable (though 178 is overzealous). Colors aren't disturbed, but the brightness becomes very inconsistent across the panel at extreme view angles. The IPS glow mentioned above becomes more apparent too at extreme view angles. (more extreme an angle than I'd ever use a computer at.)

Other Thoughts: I have lighting behind my screens shining on the back wall. This makes for a better contrast ratio and the IPS glow becomes undetectable. Not to mention that it helps reduce eyestrain. (a $10 fluorescent light Velcroed to the wall makes a for a cheap fix. though I'm thinking about using usb-powered LED strips on the back of the monitors. The built-in USB HUB is powered, so the rear lighting would only be on when the screens are on.
