ASUS ProArt Series PA246Q Black 24.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Truly wide gamut (100%+ Adobe RGB)
Great Ports
Easily Configured
Price compared to similar monitors is pretty good
Solid Warranty (though I haven't made any attempt to use it)

Cons: Heavy (but not meant to be moved, so not much of an issue)
Could always be cheaper
Silly grid button feature

Other Thoughts: Really love this monitor. It's great for photo editing and does wonders toward making prints which look the way you intend. The price is stomachable, and even for general productivity, 24" is pretty useful.

Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV - Silver, 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy to assemble, solid, eSATA

Cons: I too have the sleep issue (running on Windows XP). The enclosure puts the drive to sleep after a few minutes without use, and it takes a few seconds to get it spinning again, which can be extremely aggravating and locks up the whole system, since most programs assume the drive will be immediately accessible. Don't see any way to change this behavior...

WD WD Green WD10EADS 1TB IntelliPower 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Capacity, Price

Cons: Slow speed, and a major hassle on XP.

After loading the drive into the included enclosure, I attempted to initialize and format into a single partition. Halfway through formatting, I received an error message. This occurred 2 more times before I noticed the label on the drive itself stating that on XP, the jumpers should be set to 7-8, or WD software should be used for alignment. Since I had no way to adjust the jumpers, I attempted to find the WD Align program. To obtain it, I needed to fully register the drive with WD (give E-mail, address, etc.), at which point I was able to download the software. The alignment process took 25 hours, at which point I was finally able to format the drive.

If I'd have known how complicated this was going to be, I would have certainly purchased another drive. Also note that the warranty and return policies on this drive are very strict.

Other Thoughts: Overall not worth the hassle for a tiny bit of savings.
