Pros: - Nice size to fit on a desk, next to a 15" laptop. - Easy setup. Nice that it goes vertical and horizontal.
Cons: - Not the most vibrant color display. Perfectly fine if you do mostly text work. Very readable and clear. But not an appropriate model if vibrant colors are important for your usage.
Overall Review: Bought as a second monitor to use in a temporary work location. Great price, easy to setup, and very functional for that type of use. But I have personal photos as my desktop background, and the colors in them are muted relative to my regular monitors. The vibrancy is nothing close to what is shown in the stock photo for the item.
Pros: Lots of room, phenomenal price with the rebate! I won't need another one for quite a while. Love the rubber casing! I haven't tried to run it through the washer, but it looks like it would hold if I did. No speed issues with transferring documents or pictures.
Cons: It can be slow to transfer gigantic files (1Gb+) but for most documents and pic's, there's no noticable speed degridation. Would be nice if the cap fit on the other end, but that's minor. No lanyard with the 8Gb model, like there is with the 16Gb.
Overall Review: The rebate has been very slow to arrive. But it is on its way. Don't expect it much earlier than 3 months later. Even so, it's still a phenomenal deal with the rebate ($7).
