Dell UltraSharp U2212HM IPS-Panel Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Beautiful IPS screen with wonderful viewing angles and color clarity. High DPI means everything is nice and sharp. DisplayPort is awesome, because it makes the monitor 'future-proof' with newer computers (Thunderbolt, mini-DisplayPort, etc).

Cons: At a completely black screen, there's slight backlight bleed in the lower left and upper right corners, which is expected from an LED-backlit screen. It's never been a problem, and it's entirely unnoticeable when you're actually using the monitor.

Other Thoughts: Among other things, I'm using this monitor as a 'TV' attached to an HTPC in my dorm room. It's plenty large for multiple people watching 1080p movies in a small room.

Intel 622AN.HMWWB Wireless Adapter 6200 Centrino Advanced-N Mini PCI Express Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well, recognized instantly in Linux (x86 & x64) and Windows 7 (x86 & x64), perfect for my mini-itx HTPC.

Cons: Some Windows drivers might be hard to find.

Other Thoughts: It would be awesome if these cards included the u.fl pigtails you'll need for using them in a desktop, since these are always tricky to find.

G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works perfectly, seems to have no trouble with overheating/high temps despite lacking heat spreaders.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: RAM is cheap. There's really no reason not to have at least 8gb in any new build.
