This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC130XK3J1 Black
Pros: Aside from specs that you can find here, on newegg, an active spin-down is worth mentioning. If you don't read/write to this harddrive in a while, it will spin its disk down. Which is perfect for using it as a NAS system or as a Backup drive. The drive also has a separate power supply, which allows you to use it with raspberry pi without extra hardware.
Other Thoughts: I have two of these connected to a raspberry pi, running samba. Great, really power efficient NAS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Aside from really good specs, the screen is bright, and has a low (1/4") bezel. Actually comes with all - VGA, DVI, and HDMI cables! I was fairly surprised by that. They are only 3' cables, but long enough for my setup nevertheless.
The screen is glossy, but I know some people who don't like glossy screens and some who do, so I'll put glossiness as both - pro and con.
Overall I think this screen has the best bang for the buck.
Cons: The screen is glossy, but I know some people who don't like glossy screens and some who do, so I'll put glossiness as both - pro and con.
Other Thoughts: I like this monitor so much, that I'm trying to get a second one. But newegg raised item's price by $10 the day after I bought the first one :( Newegg, can I get the second one for the same price I got the first one? *puppy eyes*READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great colors, Great contrast, Great viewing angle. Good response time for an IPS too (great for gaming). Rotating stand is a good idea too. Overall a great product, but...
Cons: The monitor came in with a dead pixel. I didn't notice it before NewEgg's warranty expired. It has pretty small pixel size, and I didn't think to look for dead pixels. But that's my fault. I contacted LG, and they offered to pay for shipping, for me to sent it to their tech, and so I did. However, when I got the monitor back in a month, not only it still had a bad pixel in the same spot (the tech reported that he didn't see any problems), but the mounting screws for the stand had destroyed threads so that I wasn't able to remove them (wanted to wall-mount it). LG offered me to mail it back to them, but by that time I was deep into the school term, and wasn't able to have no computer for another month, so I'm still using the same monitor.
Other Thoughts: Next time if a monitor comes with bad pixel, I'll make sure to add a paper arrow to the location of the pixel.READ FULL REVIEW
