Most Favorable Review

Performed perfectly, burned 19GB in 11 min

SONY Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 8X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BWU-500S
SONY Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 8X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BWU-500S

Pros: Simple setup, just install in the computer, connect the SATA cables, and boot. Windows 7 recognized the drive and everything worked. Didn't even need to download drivers or anything. Includes a Sony BD-R blank disk, so that was a nice surprise. Performed my first BD-R data disk burn (using Nero 10). Burned 19.1 GB to the disk in 11 minutes. File verification was fine, and no errors.

Cons: None.

Better than my finger, but only a little

Pros: Pen clip, easy to carry Works great on capacitive screen The see-through tip with the red dot in the center shows exactly where you're hitting. Allowed me to increase my hunt-and-peck speed on these mobile keyboards quite a bit.

Cons: Doesn't work well at the edge of the screen. Like it's difficult to hit the letter "p" on my keyboard, since the red dot is in the center of the device, and if you try to hit the "p" at the right edge of the screen, the surrounding plastic part gets in the way. So you can tilt it and get it to hit the "p", but I found this just as difficult as trying to type with my fingers. So for letters at the edge of the screen, I have better luck with my fingers.

Overall Review: Typing something with my fingers is extremely slow. Typing with this allowed me to go at least 5 times faster for most things.

Rare high resolution at 19", excellent monitor!

Pros: A high quality display. Even brightness and easy to use front buttons made for quick setup. I normally have to spend at least an hour calibrating a new monitor, setting horiz and vert size, gamma, and color settings for video and animation. This monitor didn't need much calibration out of the box, and looks absolutely beautiful. Choosing the sRGB monitor color setting sat the display perfectly and there was no need to change any other display settings. A big selling point for me was the support for 1680x1050 resolution in a 19" monitor. I am still in disbelief at the low price for such a great monitor. I trust the ViewSonic brand as this is my 3rd ViewSonic and they have all performed great for me under heavy daily use.

Cons: No height adjustment. I sat my monitor on a box to raise it up 5". It does have VESA support for 3rd party monitor stands if you want more adjustment.
