Pros: Works great. I got this to use with a Lenovo S12 Netbook that I had migrated from XP to Linux Mint 17. It was plug 'n play all the way. GNOME PPP is the dial-up software.

The netbook lacks its own modem, and having only dial-up at a remote cabin, I didn't want all the baggage that my WIn 7 laptop brought doing too many involuntary updates over a creaky phone line.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Some people ask why dial-up? It's so ancient.

Answer: sometimes there's nothing else available, but wow, is it slow! Still, it can be faster than driving to town for some wi-fi.

Pros: the other one worked

Cons: Dead on arrival. Now I get to spend $10 to ship it back for another try. I expected better from Western Digital.I probably have too many of their drives. This was a "red' WD, presumably better quality for NAS use. Fooled me.

5 out of 5 eggs Great! Happy! 08/07/2013

This review is from: HP Smartbuy LV2311 Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED-Backlit LCD Monitor

Pros: Great monitor, very bright, a big step up from my previous, although old, 17" LCD monitor.

Great price.

Same height as previous so it fits my desk area using a wall mount.

It arrived less than 24 hours after order thanks to Newegg and UPS as I live 1 day away from the warehouse via UPS. Your mileage may vary.

Cons: No speakers, but I knew that. Overcome by being the same height as predecessor. Other external speakers will suffice.

Other Thoughts: Like an old, crafty trout lying in wait in a stream, many lures get trolled past by Newegg and others. Some, like this, get a rise and a bite. Happy trout. Happy Newegg?
