Which panel does this use?

Samsung UN40EH5000 40" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV
Samsung UN40EH5000 40" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV

Pros: Universally high rated on all sites except this one.

Cons: It's a gamble which panel you'll get.

Overall Review: Newegg, please tell us which panel Samsung used in your batch of these TVs. You can tell which panel the TV has by the "Version" on the sticker outside of the box. There's also a sticker on the back of the TV; the "Version" code is below the Model number and above the S/N. TH0x or TS0x: Samsung S-PVA panel (possibly just a PVA, if you're less lucky). Best color, best black, best viewing angles. HS0x: Sharp ASV panel: Lower contrast ratio, more narrow viewing angle. A_0X: AOU A-MVA panel: Even lower contrast ratio. CH0x or CM0x or CS0x: Chimea S-MVA panel The "x" is a number, probably from 1-4, that represents the version of that panel - higher means newer but not always better.

OK for price but P/S died in a few months

Rosewill RX-DU100 2.5” & 3.5” SATA to USB2.0 Hard Drive Docking - Retail
Rosewill RX-DU100 2.5” & 3.5” SATA to USB2.0 Hard Drive Docking - Retail

Pros: Works great if USB 2 speeds are what you need.

Cons: Power supply dies.

Great for bedside use

ORICO DCH-5U 30W 5-Port desktop USB Charger for iPhone 6s / 6 / 6 plus, iPad Air 2 / mini 3, Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge / Note 5, HTC M9, Nexus and More - White
ORICO DCH-5U 30W 5-Port desktop USB Charger for iPhone 6s / 6 / 6 plus, iPad Air 2 / mini 3, Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge / Note 5, HTC M9, Nexus and More - White

Pros: Provides two, 2.1 amp and three 1 amp ports. Separate AC power cable. Works internationally, but you need adapters.

Cons: The USB port labels are lame -- indicate device but really the two "left" ports are the same 2.1 amps and the three "right" ports are all 1 amps. No international adapter plugs.

Overall Review: I mounted mine to the back of my bedside stand with velcro so I can take when travelling.

Great drop-in replacement for OWC QX2 enclosure fan

Zalman Ultra Quiet Fan Series F1 Plus (SF) 92mm case fan w/ Shark-fin blade, Long Life (EBR) bearing, minimal noise and vibration, comes with silicon mounting pins.
Zalman Ultra Quiet Fan Series F1 Plus (SF) 92mm case fan w/ Shark-fin blade, Long Life (EBR) bearing, minimal noise and vibration, comes with silicon mounting pins.

Pros: This replaces the loud fan in older OWC Mercury Elite Qx2 RAID enclosures (FW800/eSATA/USB2). It has the "shark" fins for quieter air flow.

Cons: none

Quiet and fast in Mac Mini, but then bad blocks

SAMSUNG Spinpoint MP4 HM640JJ 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive
SAMSUNG Spinpoint MP4 HM640JJ 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Very quiet, fast and cool in a Mac Mini (Intel).

Cons: After 3 months of use, neither Mac Disk Utility, Applejack, nor Diskwarrior could fix drive. Reformatting did not help. Currently RMA-ing.

Overall Review: Samsungs ES Util is not provided by Samsung on a bootable CD. So don't bother. I found Ultimate Boot CD UBCD to diagnose as it has Samsung ESUtil on it. ES Util read surface scan found multiple errors.
