Most Critical Review

Nice...at first

HP LaserJet M2727nf CB532A MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
HP LaserJet M2727nf CB532A MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: It copies.

Cons: Stopped working after a week. Buttons were no longer responsive, computer didn't detect it, was basically useless.

Overall Review: If the printer was shut down for about a minute and then turned back on, it would work for a couple of minutes and then just freeze up. Attempted to upgrade firmware, but it froze in the middle and corrupted it. Sent back to HP under warranty (shipping cost paid by me for some reason) for repair. Still waiting for an update...

Cons: None

Beautiful

KDS K-22B2W Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers w/ HDCP Support
KDS K-22B2W Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers w/ HDCP Support

Pros: A beautiful picture with a very thin bezel. The screen is almost flush with the bezel and just gives it a very clean look.

Cons: The stand. If it had a better stand, it would be a 5 egg review. But it moves WAY too much and makes it difficult to adjust forward and backward.

Overall Review: The stand is just awful, but if you have another stand to use or will be wall-mounting this one, it is perfect.

Great look, weak stand

Acer X223Wbd 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI LCD Monitor
Acer X223Wbd 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI LCD Monitor

Pros: Monitor looks great, bright, good picture. Very clean bezel and it was very cheap.

Cons: Power button is awkward (minor annoyance) and the stand is very weak. Slight movement of the desk and it wobbles a lot. I have the Acer V223Wbd also at my desk and it's stand is much better, much more stable.

Overall Review: Spend the extra couple of dollars for the Acer V223Wbd, you will be happier with the stand.

unusable

IOGEAR GKM541R 2-Tone 104 Normal Keys 15 Function Keys RF Wireless Standard Multimedia Keyboard/Mouse Combo
IOGEAR GKM541R 2-Tone 104 Normal Keys 15 Function Keys RF Wireless Standard Multimedia Keyboard/Mouse Combo

Pros: sleek looking, feels good and of high quality

Cons: mouse cuts out for 3-5 seconds at a time once ever minute or so. for a gamer, or anybody that uses computers on a regular basis, it is basically unusable.

Overall Review: should have spent more on something nicer and name brand.
