Acer H Series H274HLbmd  Black 27

Pros: Bright monitor, clear, no dead pixels, crisp text. easily on of the best monitors I've purchased in a while. Definitely love having a 27" monitor on my desk.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I mounted this to an adjustable arm on my desk. The monitor is very light, mounting was easy!

Crucial 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1333 (PC3L 10600) Laptop Memory Model CT102464BF1339

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I use my Lenovo W520 as a portable workstation. When I run VMs about 1-2x per month, I run several. At 16GB, I would run out of memory when simulating a typical installation with 1 client, 1 ADFS server, and 1 AD Domain Server. Moving to 32 GB (with 4 of these chips) solved that problem and gives me plenty of headroom in my installation.

Cons: Price isn't competitive at $/GB with 4 GB SODIMMs. But, the price has dropped from the $700+ that was being charged down to a more reasonable $114.99 (when I bought these 1/2012).

Other Thoughts: Installing these on Windows 7, I saw my hibernate file and page file grow pretty big. This upgrade wound up eatting up all the free space on my boot disk (a 120GB SSD). I had about 70MB left after this update.

I don't use hibernation, so I turned the feature off. I also reduced the size of the page file from system managed and ~20GB down to 1-10 GB.

Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Put into my lenovo ThinkPad W520. I removed the DVD drive, put the 500 GB drive into the DVD spot, and made this my main boot and application disk. After hearing about the issues around SSDs (fast, but failure happens suddenly), I keep all working files (code, papers, etc.) on the 500 GB spindle. Nightly backups via HomeServer as well. That said, i love the speed and think it is worth the cost so long as the drive makes it past 1 year. Looking forward to the technology getting more longevity though. Hoping this was the year these things last 2+ years!

Cons: None
