Pros: Screen size maximized for my tight space.
Easy setup...had to change the resolution in the system, but there was a pop up reminder of what resolution was suggested.
If this screen will be easier on my old eyes, that will be a good thing.
How long will this monitor last? Check with me in ten years.
Cons: If this or any other monitor could be adjusted lower on the stand, I would appreciate it. Haven't seen that option unless I want to mount it on a stand alone base.
Overall Review: The price was right and I have nothing to complain about until it blinks out.
Pros: Plenty of storage
Fast enough for my requirements
came with mouse and keyboard I hadn't expected
Cons: Windows 10 was installed, but had to be activated.
Overall Review: The only issue I had wad activating the windows10 using the product key. Since I'm an idiot (read ignorant), I didn't realize that the first part of the key was covered up and had to be scratched off to reveal the whole key ID. Once that was realized, activating went easily. The refurbished laptop I ordered from Newegg a year ago had windows 10 already activated and ready to go.
The only reason I purchased a "new" computer was because my Windows 7 was no longer going to be supported. I am not happy to move to "10", but became even less so when I learned that my Microsoft Office Suite 2003 would not work with windows 10, so I had to update my Office Suite from 2003 to 2019. This switch was even more painful that leaving Windows 7.
Once activated, I have had no problems with the machine. All my issues are with finding and rearranging where data is stored with the new software.
