This review is from: Dell 30" UltraSharp UP3017 WLED LCD Monitor Model 73GTT
Pros: Screen is big and high resolution, that's why I spring for the big bucks
Cons: On screen control buttons have moved from the front of the bezel to the bottom. That means it takes two hands to use them, one to press the button in the up direction, and the other to hold the monitor from tilting. The old controls were on the front and you could press on the button and also have a few fingers behind the monitor to keep it from moving.
The monitor also no longer has DVI inputs. A lot of graphics cards may now have HDMI and display ports, but KVM boxes (at least the good ones) are still mostly DVI. Since there do not appear to be any adapters that go from DVI-D to HDMI at 2560x1600 resolution that means there is no way to use the monitor with the KVM. So if you use a KVM with multiple computers, you do not want his monitor.
Pros: Does the job, installation & usage indistinguishable from any other drive.
Cons: They don't last long. Bought a pair with a two year warranty. One failed at 22 months (got a refurbished replacement). The second failed at 24 1/2 months, and the refurbished one failed after 4 months. And it took 4 weeks to get the refurbished unit because they were 'out of stock'. So the average life was 25 months, starting to feel disposable. And they always fail suddenly, without warning.
Other Thoughts: Seagate seems to have perfected the life of their drives to be almost exactly 2 years. They used to last 5 years+, now barely make it through the warranty.
I am going to pay a bit more and go with a brand that tests have shown to last longer. Seagate is the cheapest, but there is a reason for that.
This review is from: Logitech M500 Tilt Wheel USB Corded Laser 1000 dpi Mouse
Pros: Well, it was a nice looking box
Cons: Harder to position accurately than my previous mouse (also a corded Logitech mouse)
Support is just awful, starting with a "No documentation available" on the web site support page, to the typical know-nothing tech support reps.
And if you use the mouse left handed, the backward/forward buttons are a liability because they get pushed inadvertently with your left hand and you will end up disabling them.
