PLANAR  PX2710MW  Black  27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Arrived functional and no dead pixels. Large. Bright. Decent color. Very good value. Some useful color/brightness presets. Actual buttons with tactile feedback. Power indicator is not blinding and does not blink when monitor is power saving - it just changes from green to orange. Best warranty I've seen for a consumer monitor. Company is headquartered in the Pacific Northwest.

Cons: I didn't take an egg off for any of these because they are all super minor. The contrast between grey and white isn't quite as good as my old Samsung LCD. The lowest brightness setting still feels just a little too bright for continuous reading in low light (my old Samsung got a little bit darker). Bezel and stand are glossy.

Other Thoughts: Adobe Reader's default "expand to width" on every document open is absolutely absurd for a wide aspect screen this large.

I haven't tried the speakers yet.

The UPS driver said "oops" as he literally dropped it on our porch right in front of my wife. Grrr.

Western Digital Black WD6402AAEX 640GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price
2 platter design
64MB cache
Free shipping

Cons: Diseased on Arrival - not quite dead, but not completely working, either
Had to pay for return shipping for the privilege of doing QA for WD

Other Thoughts: The drive I received had to be returned because it failed quick and extended WD Data LifeGuard diagnostics. There were too many failed reads beginning at roughly 54% through the drive. Returned for exchange, but it was out of stock and Newegg refunded instead. I gave it two eggs instead of one because it wasn't completely Dead on Arrival.
