LG 27MP36HQ-B 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Arrived earlier than expected, very satisfactory for the price and for what it's intended
Great size and glad the display is not a "wide screen" format

Cons: May tweak the colors a little when I have the time but, for the price and my income, I knew what I was getting

Other Thoughts: Can't understand why all the complaints about the length of the power cord, the "annoying blinking power LED, washed out colors, bleeding,etc. Monitors manufactured by Chinese in China aren't exactly "boutique" monitor displays on special order. People in China probably wear the same uniforms at home that they wear at work. The price is quite reasonable, with or without the discount. Students here in the U.S. can't afford a separate office with a PC or monitor that's constantly on in the same room. Why not just shut off the monitor or even the PC and save energy? Even if the landlord includes free utilities! The old saw, you get what you pay for still holds true. I knew what to expect. Sure I could have paid a little more for the LG 27MC37HQ-B but it was also a little more in price. Complaints like the above are unwarranted unless you're a Kardashian.

Nero 2016 Classic

3 out of 5 eggs Meh! This reasonable offering from Nero serves mostly as an advertisement for their more expensive suite 10/24/2016

This review is from: Nero 2016 Classic

Pros: Works for most commonplace conversions in Windows 10

Cons: I had the former full suite back when I was using Windows XP and there weren't as many free alternatives available on the internet. I also remember how annoyingly insidious the program was in the registry and how difficult it was to remove "footprints" throughout the entire operating system when things went awry in the operation of some of the features. That suite no longer worked or even attempted to install in Windows 7 or 10 so I was disappointed after spending so much money on the full suite. I bought this one with the hope that I could use at least half the features the full suite had at the "bargain" price of $15 in a "Shell Shocker" deal. Boy, was I surprised. I know there are no free lunches but this version brings nothing to the table that I can't get from free alternatives.

Other Thoughts: This new version works in Windows 10 but serves only as a teaser for the more expensive version which was originally a bloated mess with all the bugs and very exasperating to use. From reviews on the Windows 10 compatible full suite, Ahead software still fails to satisfy. Three stars is a kind review for a software company that appears to not have improved its product since Windows XP.

4 out of 5 eggs Good value but, like many M.2 SSDs, there are heat issues 10/02/2016

This review is from: Plextor M8Pe M.2 2280 256GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PX-256M8PeG

Pros: Running just one 256 GB Plextor in standard config as the root drive and it is 3x faster in reads/sec than a Samsung 850 Pro conventional SSD

Cons: Temperature of the Plextor is never below 45-49 degrees Celsius, even at idle. Since the module is on the underside of the board, close to the PS, I'm still searching for cooling solutions. I've been told by Plextor that there's nothing to worry about but I'm already reading about throttling on other vendor M.2 brands with the same configuration. I didn't skimp on fans for my mini-ITX case and none of the components, not even the 6700K processor, ever produced such temperatures as this module. I continue my quest for a cooling solution regardless.
A tip to "Anonymous" you get the driver for Windows 7 here:

I too was not impressed with Plextor support. Samsung definitely tries to help more in the form of updates and utilities, but this Plextor module is cheaper and quite fast. Make sure you picked the right M8Pe for your motherboard. There are different flavors. Hopefully you didn't pick the wrong one. See your motherboard manufacturer. Mine was Gigabyte and their support has gone downhill as well recently.
