Link Depot CA6S-7-BUB 7 ft. Cat 6A Blue Shielded STP Style Molded Network Ethernet Cables
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: stiff plastic, tip does not easily break like the ones from (m o n o p r i c e)
reasonable price

Cons: stiff plastic hard to unplug
20% of our order was DOA (most link depot orders only have 0-2 bad ones but this order was the exception)

Other Thoughts: we ordered these in bulk and more than we really needed to plan ahead for future expansion, as we got around to putting each one to use over the years we found that roughly 20% of our order was bad (no connectivity at all) Link Depot needs to do better in terms of quality check(all was in sealed plastic bag untampered)
however this was the only order that had such a high fail rate, we also order many other Link Depot cat6 cables of other lengths at the same time and those only had 0-2 bad ones in the whole order which is normal for any brand.

SPARKLE GeForce FX 5200 DirectX 9 SF8834DT256MB 256MB 128-Bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs works and more reliable than other nvidia cards 02/13/2013

This review is from: SPARKLE GeForce FX 5200 DirectX 9 SF8834DT256MB 256MB 128-Bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card

Pros: VGA:
reliable (have not burnt out yet despite not having a fan, had 2 other cards with fan burn out on me)
1920 × 1080 compatible no stuttering at high resolution (but runs kinda hot)

Cons: S-vid 4pin:
max resolution is 1050 but video is curved at edges with no software options to correct for this
no way to adjust margins independently can only move picture in 4 directions or shrink/enlarge

Other Thoughts: quality product

Dell UltraSharp U2312HM IPS-Panel Black 23
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: good viewing angle
no dead pixels
VGA works
matte finish (no glare)
swivel works
has USB ports
plug and play

Cons: no power switch at back (must unplug power cord and replug power cord)
power button does not work (sticks, requires mashing or multiple presses, other buttons work fine though)
height is not quit high enough still has to put a phone book under it on standard desks
height locking mechanism is not that reliable, sometimes monitor slides down on its own
useless tilt (it sags to a tilted position requiring frequent restraightening out the monitor when in horizontal mode, vertical mode is stable though)
DVI max resolution is 1366x768 only...
not true LED (LED backlighting)
expensive (can get better more functional monitor for this price...)
DVI port is glitchy (sometimes has to choose DVI input instead of auto detect to get it to display)
giltichy when switching between VGA and DVI port to same computer
USB ports leaves multiple instances of phantom hubs in computer management
USB ports sometime does not recognize USB devices (most likely the power supply of the monitor is not supplying enough power to the ports since the devices work fine if plugged into the computer directly)
Dell has horrible customer service

Other Thoughts: VGA: fully functional same as reported specs (ex: 1920 × 1080)

DVI: max resolution is 768 anything larger and it goes off screen (auto adjust grayed out)

does not play well with my nvidia control panel changing setting sometimes auto resets to 640×480 or changes does not apply or save at all (other monitors on same computer and same graphics card does not have this problem)
DVI with 16:9 aspect ratio gives black bars at top and bottom while the horizontally it goes off screen
USB2.0 ports not 3.0
