Acer G257HU smidpx 25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very nice resolution increase over my previous external monitor (1920x1200). Clear and bright screen, no bad pixels, trim bezel. Comes with cables. Well worth the price I got it for. It's going to be great for code development.

Cons: Stand is wobbly at times, especially if you bump into the desk/table it sits on, but it damps pretty quick. It's also quite low and does not adjust vertically; I needed to add a large 1" thick book to give the right height for myself (I'm 5'10"). It's minor and solvable, but compared to the nice adjustable Dell monitor stand (i.e., U2414M) I couldn't give 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I replaced a 24" 1900x1200 screen with this one. It's very compact, because of the skinny bezel, which is nice, but the one-inch diagonal increase doesn't seem that much over 24". Higher resolution makes my other 24" monitors look blurry!

By the way, DisplayPort passes audio too, which is nice, and the speakers are adequate for my purposes.

LG HBS-750 Grey Tone Pro Bluetooth Stereo Headset

4 out of 5 eggs Great headset with some minor drawbacks 06/06/2015

This review is from: LG HBS-750 Grey Tone Pro Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Sound is great and they perform generally well. Very light; you can forget you have them on.

Cons: Not so keen on the new buttons. Although they seem to be redesigned to be less prone to accidental pressing, the buttons on the pair I have are still rather sensitive and can get pressed.

Also, the buttons now are more difficult to find. The HBS-730 had a round call and pause buttons and long skinny other buttons and were easy to find with my fingers. The 750 buttons are all long and kind of blend in with the section between the buttons, so you have to be careful to make sure you find the right one.

Other Thoughts: I've had the HBS-700, HBS-730 and now these. The batteries in the first pair died after 13 months - warranty already expired. The 730's are better on that score, but my pair skipped often, especially on pressing "play".

The 750's work absolutely perfectly on that score. However, now I am having a problem where suddenly audio will stop, a few seconds will pass, then the headset says "power on, battery high, connected". I have no idea why this happens, and it only happens like once a week, randomly

Regardless, I'm going to be RMA'ing them because they *should* work just perfectly. I know it's possible - I *never* had any problems the 700's until the battery died.

In spite of these issues, I have relied on these wireless headsets for several years now and am totally addicted to them. It's a sign of how much I rely on them that these small problems are so annoying, yet I still use the headsets.

Pros: Less than half the price compared to such batteries purchased in the past. More than doubles my laptop's lifetime compared to the existing 4 year old 9-cell battery.

Cons: Came somewhat discharged. Clearly been sitting on the shelf since April 2012 (mfr date).

Other Thoughts: Works great in spite of the age.
