CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series CP1500AVRLCD 1500VA 900W 8 Outlets UPS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works great, quiet, and protects the equipment plugged into it. With one desktop and monitor plugged into it, it has 37 minutes of runtime without power.

Cons: No real cons to speak of.

Other Thoughts: This is my second CyberPower 900 watt UPS. I bought the first a few years ago because rolling brownouts kept damaging my equipment. After I used this, the problems stopped entirely. When the power fails, it has about seven minutes of battery life with two desktops and monitors, cable modem, and a router all plugged into it. That's more than enough time to save your data and shut down. I purchased a second one for a computer in another room.

ASUS VX228H Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a great monitor with multiple preset color and brightness settings. It's also manually adjustable for those who don't like the presets. Clarity and brightness are good.

Cons: Speakers sound terrible, so I don't use them. They would work for basic sound, but music has a lot of hissing and static background noise at highs and lows. They also have no bass to speak of.

Other Thoughts: In the 720 and 1080 settings, the screen looses about 3/4 of an inch on the left and right and 1/2 of an inch above and below, so you don't actually get the full 21 and 1/2 inch diagonal display in those settings. Overall, this is a great monitor, but if you get it with the intention of using the onboard speakers you will be disappointed.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent memory with decent timings. It's overpriced when compared to DDR3, but it is to be expected. Vista Ultimate runs a little faster with 4GB rather than the 2GB I had before. My old Core 2 Duo seems to like the upgrade.

Cons: Nothing to complain about.

Other Thoughts: With the price, it would have been nice to include a heatsink. I've had memory errors before from overheating, but that was with older and higher voltage ram. My older XP Pro only shows 3.55 GB with 4GB installed, which is what I was expecting again. Vista Ultimate is 32-bit as well but still utilizes the full 4GB. It was a pleasant suprise.
