ASUS PA249Q Black 24.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs squealing noise renders monitor unuseable 03/30/2014

This review is from: ASUS PA249Q Black 24.1" 6ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor AH-IPS 350 cd/m2 80,000,000:1

Pros: High quality display.

Cons: High pitched squealing noise emanates from the back of the monitor. It is loud enough to render the monitor essentially unusable.

Other Thoughts: I purchased one of these monitors. The high pitched squealing noise I described in the "Cons" section made it impossible to use because I work in a quiet environment. I returned the monitor and was given a replacement. The replacement monitor also emits the awful squealing noise. I consider the money I paid for this to be wasted. Do not buy this monitor unless it will be used somewhere with a very high level of ambient noise. A Laundromat, maybe.

OCZ Vector Series 2.5

1 out of 5 eggs Can't use with Storage Spaces/Pools 02/14/2013

This review is from: OCZ Vector Series 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC VTR1-25SAT3-128G

Pros: None beyond basic functionality. Maybe they are fast. I don't know. They don't seem to be compatible with the feature for which I bought them.

Cons: Can't be used in Windows 8 storage pools. Receive a "device I/O error" when I try to make a storage pool out of two of these drives.
Certainly, they seem to work, strictly speaking, but that's hardly a "pro". Every drive should, at the very least, work. But they aren't capable of being used with the basic OS feature I bought them for, while similar drives can. So they are useless.

Other Thoughts: I have the 512 GB version of this drive and it works fine, so I bought two of these 128's. The first two I got would not be recognized by Windows (8) no matter what I did. RMA'd them. The next set works fine in Windows. However, they will not work with Storage Spaces, which was the whole reason I bought them. The 512 GB drive DID work in a Storage Space.
How many times am I supposed to RMA these, I wonder?
I guess OCZ doesn't know about Windows 8 yet...
I won't be spending anymore money on a company that won't keep up with features of the latest operating system, and I suggest the reader also does not as well.
