Most Favorable Review

Fine little set of headphones

PLANTRONICS USB Connector Supra-aural Headset
PLANTRONICS USB Connector Supra-aural Headset

Pros: On W10 they work great, W7 works good as well. My GF tried them once and now they are hers. She hates most over ear HPs. Work on DT & LT, we have 5 DTs & 2 LTs all dif makers. Works with them all, some need to DL SW but that is a matter of seconds.

Cons: The inline control is a bit big, cable a bit short, it is standard length and for a PC should be at least 1.5 normal, 2 x min.

Overall Review: If you have a system with earphone issues such as a broken socket that cannot be replaced, or issues w/ your MB software, these might be the saving of your sanity.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK

Pros: Very attractive, matched the motherboard. Worked for 2 hours

Cons: After the second crash the system refused to even boot w/ these installed.

Overall Review: System crashed 2 times in 3 hours with these chips installed. The second time it refused to boot w/ these chips installed. I tried using other ram to change the settings and placing these back in but NG. I have the MB from H*LL! -William's Demesne 731747

Good monitor.

ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) W/Speakers
ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) W/Speakers

Pros: Great picture, stable base, no pixelation seen in more expensive monitors that came out at this time. Does small icons well, even very small icons, and graphics creation.

Cons: Horrible speakers. Large glossy border, that can be a distraction if any light is behind you especially moving lights. HDMI has a large black on screen border that must be removed in your graphic cards software. Monitor has never been seen by any OS I have used (generic vga) HVIor HDMI which means any real adjustments must be done in your graphics card software. If your HVI cord falls out you will not be able to simply plug it back in, the screen remains black and you must dig out an HDMI cord or reboot your system. One of our two monitors has had issues with the power button since about 35 days after delivery.

Overall Review: This is not a TV but it is a great monitor especially for the price at the time.

Fantastic drive.
