Cons: No VESA mount
No display port.
Other Thoughts: This is a very elegant monitor, much smaller footprint than the ASUS 27" monitor with which it shares my desk. No wasted space-minimal frame.
The color and sharpness were excellent right out of the box. If there are any dead pixels, I do not see them. I have three small complaints: 1) No VESA mount; 2) No display port - who needs a D-SUB (VGA) these days; and 3) Newegg shipped it in the kind of box that you get from a big box store - they did not re-pack it in a larger box for UPS shipment. Mine arrived in good shape, but I would bet this is not always the case. It is not quite as sharp as my HP ZR2440W, but it is cheaper, slimmer and bigger, so I excuse this fault as well. Recommended.
Pros: Construction quality.
Cons: Madd in China not Hong Kong
Short USB 3 cable.
Other Thoughts: After having two lesser hubs fail I plumped for this one. Construction quality appears very high and the unit has ample power for charging. Connections work well. My only complaint is that unlike my other ORICO products this one is made in China and is branded Bokcore not ORICO.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter
Pros: Low Cost
Easy to Use
Cons: No option for external AC Adapter to use it with a 3.5" drive-only suitable for drives that can be powered by USB.
Other Thoughts: I was upgrading from a Kingston Hyper X 128GB SSD to a Vertex 4 256GB SSD. Did not have time for a clean install. I tried Acronis True Image (which has always worked in the past) and Norton Ghost. Neither worked, using a couple of different external SATA to USB 3 devices. Saw this on special and took a leap. Worked the first time and was so easy anyone could do it. Clone worked perfectly except for Quick Books which likes to bury hidden encrypted authorization files just to make things more difficult. Clearing that up took far more time and effort than the clone. New drive is a bit faster even without a clean install.
