Pros: Physically lightweight, attractive, NO dead pixels after 2 years of nearly 24/7 use of gaming.
Cons: Stand is pretty light and can wobble the screen if bumped. Came with a VGA cord and not DVI, so I had to buy a DVI. Built in speakers are terrible but I had no intention of using them in the first place, nothing to knock off an egg for.
Other Thoughts: The included VGA display also caused some minor screen tearing, so get a DVI/HDMI cable for sure! On many occasions I've accidentally touched the touch buttons and brought up the monitor's menu a very minor inconvenience, but still annoying nonetheless. Love the cute ViewSonic Finches in the upper left-hand corner of the monitor!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Crisp screen, no dead pixels after about 4-5 months. Lightweight; easy to move around. The stand, while looking flimsy, is actually pretty tough. The Monitor doesn't really wobble around unless you TRY to make it (not even minor bumps to the desk will budge it) Have not tried the build in speakers, have no need to.
Cons: This monitor came with junky HDMI cables. The visual on the screen was not the best it could be. Had to order a separate DVI cable. But once it arrived the problems cleared up and it's brilliance shined forth.
Other Thoughts: If this came with a DVI cable standard it would be worthy of a perfect 5 eggs. Built in speakers are powered by a regular speaker jack into the back of your computer and the cord isn't too terribly long enough to do so in most cases.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Literally silent when running. Was on a budget and didn't want to spend and arm and a leg for an excessively pricey SSD. A lot of other reviews have said this particular model has been DoA or die very fast, but it's been a half a year and mine is showing absolutely no signs of age or slowing down. Not one error has occurred with it either. It started up right out of the box (which was an OEM drive covered in bubble wrap)
Cons: Small HD space gets used up very fast when installing video games. Slower to start up than an SSD. But otherwise not the HDD's fault, you get what you paid for exactly.
Other Thoughts: Will definitely purchase from WD again in the future. Wish I had been able to afford a higher priced HDD with more memory. This one's memory has almost been completely eaten up by video game installs.READ FULL REVIEW
