Most Favorable Review
Cooler Master Notepal U1 Laptop / Netbook Cooling Pad, up to 14" (1 x 80mm Configurable Fan)
Cooler Master Notepal U1 Laptop / Netbook Cooling Pad, up to 14" (1 x 80mm Configurable Fan)

Pros: Sturdy enough for 15inch laptop. Movable fan.

Cons: laptop slides if you don't seat it perfectly.

Overall Review: Not sure if my laptop is widescreen 15inch but just doesn't feel secure. I should've ordered the U2 model... It will be perfect for none widescreen laptops. Otherwise, get the next one above.

Acer S231HLbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI LED-Backlight LCD monitor Slim Design 250 cd/m2 ACM 12,000,000:1 (1000:1)

Pros: Uses about 15-20w which is half of what my LCD is using. Came with all the cables needed. Not bad for $149... bought 2 to run Eyefinity

Cons: I have Samsung 245BW and the color difference is huge. I managed to set the color settings to match close to the 245BW but the contrast and color depth is far inferior. But it was expected from LED that costs 1/3 of what I paid for 245BW. There is noticeable backlight bleeding.

Overall Review: Bought 2 to setup Eyefinity with my Samsung even thought they are different resolution. If you 1:1 scale 24inch 1920x1200 to 1080p, you can use 23inch 1080p to line up just fine but Eyefinity won't work since OS treats all monitors as one and scaling cannot be applied to 24inch only and you end up with stretched image on the 24inch. I have it setup 23-24-23 and the stretch doesn't bother me much while gaming. Viewing text however becomes little annoying.

Nikon P500

SanDisk Ultra 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model SDSDRH-008G-A11
SanDisk Ultra 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model SDSDRH-008G-A11

Pros: No problem with Nikon P500. Tested write speed using 5 burst shots and this wrote 5 seconds faster than other class 10 SDHC.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: Nikon P500 still has fw 1.0 which is known to have issue with certain Sandisk memory but it worked fine. But I'm afraid of losing pictures so I'll update to 1.1 soon.
