Most Favorable Review

Great monitor!

Hanns·G HH-281HPB Black 28" 3ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 400 cd/m2 DC 15000:1(800:1) Built in Speakers
Hanns·G HH-281HPB Black 28" 3ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 400 cd/m2 DC 15000:1(800:1) Built in Speakers

Pros: *Bright and vibrant colors *No back light bleed over at all *the 1920x1200 resolution is way better than 1920x1080 *No problems with viewing angles at all *Sharp crisp text and images *Not a single dead or stuck pixel *Sufficient packaging from Hanns-G *I'm totally blown away with the image quality of this monitor

Cons: *Default brightness was blinding, had to reduce to 20% for better viewing *The stand is not all that sturdy and allows the monitor to shake if you touch it or bump your desk *The Controls are hard to use at first and take some getting used to because of their location *The small features stickers they put on the monitor were hard to get off cleanly *It doesn't auto detect input signals quickly enough, had to turn auto detection OFF

Overall Review: *This is a pretty big monitor so keep that in mind *I hesitated for months to purchase this monitor due to some of the other reviews, but it went on sale... and I couldn't resist *I was terribly afraid that I'd regret this purchase but don't regret it at all *This monitor has better images than either of my higher dollar 27" Samsung, and 27" ASUS LCD monitors *The monitor itself seems somewhat cheaply built but the screen images make up for that *The framing around the monitor is highly glossy, so that could be a plus or negative depending on what you like *Overall, this monitor is much better than I ever expected it would be *Made in China but far better than most of the Chinese made products that I've purchased *Maybe I'm just lucky to have received a really good one? *Would I buy it again? Heck yeah, without another thought!

Most Critical Review

three reboots and lots of bad sectors

OCZ Agility 2 2.5" 50GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2AGT50G
OCZ Agility 2 2.5" 50GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2AGT50G

Pros: --- * small * no heat * no noise * uses less power * newegg is the very best

Cons: --- * too expensive for what you get even if it works * didn't feel nearly as fast as you'd think it would be * on third reboot, started getting error messages about bad sectors * had to ask newegg for rma and pay shipping charges to me and back to them

Overall Review: --- * installed on linux desktop computer, rebooted 3 times, then problems * wouldn't buy this again, too much money for not all that much gain in speed * better to wait until ssd drives work better with desktop computers and linux * if replacement drive starts having problems after 3 reboots, i'm done with ssd

Nice toolbox for the price!

TACTIX 321102 3 Drawer Steel Portable Tool Box
TACTIX 321102 3 Drawer Steel Portable Tool Box

Pros: * rugged build * great price * drawer bottoms lined

Cons: * some minor defects in workmanship

Overall Review: * this toolbox is fairly heavy * would buy again * toolbox was damaged (shipping box showed no signs of damage) * seller was very quick to fix the problem and went above and beyond what was necessary to correct the situation * replacement toolbox was received right away and had no damage

Wrong Item, or Wrong Image?

iStarUSA BPU-HSTRAY-3BL 3 x SAS/SATA Blue Handles Hard Drive Tray pack
iStarUSA BPU-HSTRAY-3BL 3 x SAS/SATA Blue Handles Hard Drive Tray pack

Pros: - sealed in plastic wrap

Cons: - trays received are NOT the same version as those shown in the image provided (as of the date of my order)

Overall Review: These are apparently a newer version of the same model of tray and are NOT built as well as the previous version. Would not have ordered had I known that I'd receive something different from what was expected, but it's not worth the hassle to return them, so I'm stuck with them.

Nice, heavy duty monitor

NEC Display Solutions EA241WM-BK Black 24" 5ms  Height,Pivot and Swivel Adjustable  Widescreen LCD Monitor w/Speakers 400 cd/m2 1000:1
NEC Display Solutions EA241WM-BK Black 24" 5ms Height,Pivot and Swivel Adjustable Widescreen LCD Monitor w/Speakers 400 cd/m2 1000:1

Pros: - nice monitor, and no dead/stuck pixels - sharp text, good contrast, nice bright colors - heavier duty build than most LCD monitors - very nice stand with smooth movement/action - usb ports, headphone jack, cable management & cover - fully assembled out of the box, except for cords

Cons: - joystick type settings button a little hard to manipulate - more expensive than most, but built far better than most

Overall Review: - nice features, stand allows for just about anything - not wobbly at all, as is the case with most monitors these days - black matt finish on stand and frame give no glare - blue power LED not overly big, or overly bright - NEC logo and model decals not overly distracting - had to turn the default brightness way down - monitor with stand weighs in at over 23 lbs - not a gamer, so can't comment on that - would definitely buy this monitor again

Buy this!

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D

Pros: - got it on sale working perfectly easy installation fast RAM good timings

Cons: - none

Overall Review: - working well with the 6GB kit that I already had on my ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard giving me a total of 12GB. I've heard some users say doing this didn't work for them so maybe I lucked out.

Quick to fix problem with my order!

I see that some people have given poor reviews for VMInnovations, but my transaction and experience with them was totally the opposite. My order arrived in a timely manner with no damage at all to the shipping box, but the product inside was severely damaged. A quick email to their customer service team was answered within an hour or two, and they offered to take care of the problem without any hesitation. My replacement order went out the next day as they said it would, and this time there was no damage to the product. Based on that order alone I'd not hesitate to do business with them again. They went above and beyond what was necessary to make things right, so THANK YOU, VMInnovations for handling this matter so quickly and more than adequately.
