ADATA 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model SPEEDY CF 16GB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Very unreliable! 11/01/2008

This review is from: ADATA 16GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model SPEEDY CF 16GB

Pros: Cheap, Large capacity

Cons: Performance is very unreliable.

Other Thoughts: Sometimes it works at 4-6 megabytes per second. Sometimes at 1-2 megabytes per second. On occasions it just stalls. Sometimed stalls are long enough for applications to keep trying and report corrupted data. My digital camera sometimes refuses to write to the card and power cycles.

Aluratek ADMPF110 10.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks good when turned off. Acceptable size. Universal power supply (110-220 volts).

Cons: It cannot display pictures while connected to a PC. You have to disconnect it before it can display pictures! I was planning for a permanent installation and connection. Colors are poor. Very slow. Gets hot.

Other Thoughts: Digital frames have very big shoes to fit. Normal frames with paper pictures are perfect. They have excellent colors, work everywhere in the world, don't get hot, don't require any cords, and can be watched at any angle. I was avoiding digital frames until I decided to try this one for my parents as it had more or less acceptable reviews. It is no different than the rest. Poor colors and viewing angles! Why can't they use IPS LCD panels in these frames? The frame is slow, and gets hot. But inability to work when connected to a computer is a disaster. I lost thirty four dollars in this experiment on restocking and shipping and this is a lesson for me. Digital frames aren't acceptable yet.

SCEPTRE X24WG-1080P Black 24
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap, large, high resolution, DVI+VGA, cables included.

Cons: Ugly colors, worst picture quality, very narrow viewing angles, stuck pixel, so-so stand.

Other Thoughts: In this case you get what you pay for. I use excellent DELL 3007WFP-HC for editing photos but my wife needed monitor for editing music (notation and recordings). It had to be high-res but colors/picture weren't important. I decided to try X24WG out without setting expectations too high. Yet I was a little dissapointed. Usable viewing angle is about 30 degrees off-axes, at about 45 degrees picture already goes negative. Skin tones go ugly first. Gamma seems to be way too high. Don't see how dynamic contrast can be useful. When picture becomes dark, it reduces backlight in about 4 steps over about 3 sec. When picture becomes bright, it increases backlight. This effect is very visible and annoying. But back on track. If you don't need picture quality, just resolution - get this monitor. If you need picture quality even remotely, don't buy.
