1 out of 5 eggs Incompatible with ibuypower PC with Gigabyte MB 03/22/2014

This review is from: ADATA XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model AX3U1600C4G9-DR

Pros: There are none that I can think of, since it fails to work.

Cons: With these RAM modules installed into my system's DDR3 memory slots, it fails to start -- it won't even go to the BIOS splash screen. Testing each module 1 by 1 in a single slot proved the memory to be non-functional in my system. The old RAM works, but alas not my new memory. I am going to return it.

Seagate Momentus 5400.6 ST9320325AS 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5

Pros: +Arrived well packaged
+Installed within 3 minutes
+Operates so quietly, I almost thought my laptop wasn't running.

Cons: -If you don't know how to install a bare drive, you'll need to get instructions. This is literally a naked drive with no additional installation hardware or instructions.

Other Thoughts: This is a great replacement drive for an older laptop. If you know how to remove the old one, you'll know how to install this one, without any problems. Installing Windows 7 went smoothly and after a week, I've had no regrets choosing this model.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24

Pros: +Ideal screen size for reading large documents/illustrations on an average desk.
+Extra horizontal resolution (1200 versus the typical 1080) has a significant impact on the number of lines I can read.
+Color, brightness were accurate and brilliant out-of-the-box, with no discernible edge or pixel problems.
+vertical height and tilt adjustments are superior to other similarly priced models.
+the anti-glare coating is even and effective.

Cons: -input plugs are vertical and difficult to access. You need to lift and tilt the monitor to get anything plugged in.
-the USB ports are not live when the monitor is off or in power-saver mode. This means phone chargers and input devices turn off when you're away from the computer. This is a problem if you want to wake your machine by touching a key or moving the mouse.
-the eco-friendly packaging means it's a little more difficult to get the monitor out of the box. Not a big deal, but be careful you don't yank too hard and have your new screen fly out of the box!
-The software installation disc is USELESS. It does not recognize the monitor and therefore refuses to install drivers. Instead, go to Dell's website and download the latest driver setup files.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this monitor after years of wanting a 1920x1200 resolution monitor that didn't feel like an excessive splurge. This monitor felt like a great deal and I'm pleased with my purchase. With free shipping and a saver discount, the small issues I have with this model are negligible.
