SAMSUNG Spinpoint M5 HM160HC 160GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache ATA 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Revived an old Sony Vaio bought May 2005. Using HDTune I saw the R/W speeds double from the 6 year old original 80gb drive.

Cons: Cost per Gb is relatively high.

Other Thoughts: Used a clonezilla live cd to clone the old drive's contents over. This is ok because the hardware obviously didn't change.

Asus VH238H Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's big, but not huge, so I think this is in a sweet spot for size. Those people referring to this as "huge" never used a 24-27" monitor before. The colors are good, but not earth-shattering good. If you want a monitor with colors that make you tingle buy an Apple Cinema display or another IPS. The stand is fine. The cables are maybe 3-4 feet in length (sufficient for me), and it comes with DVI *and* VGA. This is not something all manufacturers provide.

Cons: Buttons seem cheap, but you'll only notice this when you dial in your settings preferences. Something I was not expecting was that all the various presents and configurations can make the picture look vastly different. It's up to the end user to figure out what works for them. I'm not about to dole out hard earned money for a calibration device. Also, I use F.lux so my colors change with the time of day anyways....

Other Thoughts: Not sure if this is a pro or con, but yes the thing is bright. I have my brightness @15/100. I didn't bother with the probably shouldn't either.

This review is from: D-Link DGE-530T/RE Gigabit Desktop Adapter 10/100/1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: Second one works as expected (plug and play in win7 64bit).

Cons: First one could not install correctly, so I RMA-ed for a new one. This basically added $5 (shipping) to the cost of the card.

Other Thoughts: Cannot attest to reliability yet, but I don't foresee issues.

Speed bottleneck for server transfers is now due to the hard drive interface (this is a good thing).
