29" of spreadsheet heaven!

LG 29UB65-P Black 29" HDMI UltraWide IPS panel LED Backlight LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DCR 5,000,000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers, Height/Tilt Adjustable

Pros: This is a great ultra-wide monitor. Love it! If you do any spreadsheet work, this is the monitor for you. The stand has both height/tilt as well as rotation capability and is pretty sturdy.

Cons: Speakers are almost useless, get some external speakers and do your ears a favor. I'm not sure how useful the rotation option but hey, it's available if you want it.

Pros: What can I say, the cable works and at a great price. Got this to get my 29" ultra-wide monitor to display at max resolution (2560x1080)

Cons: Wish I got it in black, not a real con, my mistake

TP-Link 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express, PCIE Network Adapter / Network Card / Ethernet Card for PC, Win10 supported (TG-3468)

Pros: Got this card to replace dead on board Ethernet port. For some reason, it feels faster than what I had on the motherboard. Can't beat it for the price. Comes with an extra low profile bracket in case you need it.

Cons: None at this price

Great drive!!!

Pros: Very good drive with non of the issues reported with the J-Micron controller. I bought this at a B&M retailer a while back and have been very happy. The drive is very fast and my laptop (DELL D620) and Windows XP boots up in about 1 minute and I'm fully logged in and using the PC 30 secs after that. Compare that to taking about 5mins to boot up and another 2 mins to login. The difference being the new hard drive and 1 GB of additional RAM (3GB total).

Cons: $/GB is still high, but still much better than any of the competition. You do sacrifice some performance in comparison to other SSDs, but you get a lot for what you pay for!

Overall Review: Don't let the issues of the J-Micron controller scare you off, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this drive (when compared to other SSDs)
