  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Work so far, but haven't done anything taxing

Cons: None

OCZ Vertex Plus R2 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast enough for me.

Cons: A little small for dual-booting, but big enough for one OS.

Other Thoughts: Only my second SSD, and not used for gaming so not sure how to quantify speed other than than it loads Ubuntu 12.04 faster than it takes to get through the bios screen.
Obviously paired with a magnetic drive for larger/longer term storage.

Acer G205HVbd Black 20
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good monitor for the price.

Cons: Two of these monitors don't actually line up next to each other on a desk, ~5mm off which is noticeable, but could always get a VESA dual monitor stand.

Other Thoughts: Bought two for a dual monitor setup, and while some reviews complained about the viewing angle, I can't physically get to a position where I can't see when they are set up at a desk, but if you were using as a dorm-room TV I guess it could be annoying.
