SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Good External Hard Drive 06/05/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: File transfer is reasonably fast, especially compared to my old usb 2.0 external drive. 4tb is a great size for a full system recovery image of my current drive. No problems at all so far...

Cons: Included software is pointless and it takes longer to spin up than my previous external drive.

Other Thoughts: Great external drive for backups or a media drive plugged into our router.

GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD4H LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid board that has been super reliable for overclocking and everything else once I figured out the problem. Looks awesome with my G skill ram and case and all the black caps look way better than my last board. Audio is surprisingly good with low ohm headphones, 32-60ish ohms.

Cons: 4 sticks of ram will create bsods at random several times a day. The board is extremely stable with 2 dimms filled, but I do have a fix. Raise the "System Agent Voltage" in the bios + .2 and all the stability problems with ram will vanish. I am now running 4x4 DDR3 ram and haven't had a single bsod since.

Forums are full of people having issues with all z87 gigabyte motherboards using 4 dimms of ram. Use the fix and be happily on your way. Definitely worth taking an egg off as it took forever to figure out.

Motherboard says it can push 600 ohm headphones, but it doesn't do it very well. My beyerdynamic dt 880 cans sound weak and thin with the on board audio, so now I am using an Asus STX Essence.

Other Thoughts: Great board other than the ram issue which is completely fixable, but it shouldn't have come from the factory that way. Slightly disappointed, but I've never had a gigabyte motherboard die on me so I am sticking with them.

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

Pros: Way better than the 22 Asus it replaced in every aspect.
Color is awesome and deep
Viewing angles are much better
Stand it better
Rotates into portrait mode for work
Is still 16:10 and not the ridiculous 16:9
Gaming is really sweet
My old dell sound bar still works with this monitor

I use the calibration settings from TFT central, and I have a really good looking monitor now. Everyone should check out the color profiles and put them to good use.

Cons: Insanely bright out of the box.

The whites on this monitor are almost blinding if you don't turn the brightness down. This monitor does need calibration, and again I recommend TFT central to find all the info you need for the monitor, especially if you don't have any calibration equipment.

I actually have the brightness set to 16 and the contrast to 75. I'm not a huge fan of overly bright displays that wash all the colors out, and thankfully this monitor looks great at all brightness levels.

Other Thoughts: While I originally wanted a u2410, this monitor is awesome and much more affordable. I do wish dell would make a 27 or 30 inch version of the u2412m. Because a 30inch with two 24 inch monitors in portrait mode on each side would be ridiculously amazing.
