HP Compaq LE1711 17

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent budget choice for occasional use 01/31/2014

This review is from: HP Compaq LE1711 17" LCD Monitor - 1280x1024, 1000:1 Native, 5ms, 60Hz, VGA

Pros: This isn't something you want for gaming or even casual use - you should get at least 1080p resolution monitors for everyday use, considering they're relatively cheap these days. Furthermore, this one is only 17", so the size is also not optimal for everyday use.

What this is is a perfect budget, light, small-size monitor for occasional use. It is ideal for 24/7 PC setups such as servers that you don't use monitors with but where a monitor comes in handy should you lose network connectivity and in the event you become unable to control the host remotely.

For its intended purpose, it does everything I needed at a great price. Refurbished, but looks like new.

Cons: VGA output only, have to use DVI adapter

Other Thoughts: Low resolution
Small size

ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Fatal1ty Z87 Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good quality build from Asrock. 7 PCI-e (ranging from 1x to 16x) for all sorts of GPUs and other devices! Killer network manager suite provides extra networking priority control. Better audio hardware solution than other boards. Special mouse port for sniper mode during gaming. Small extras like USB key for authentication, tools for ramdisk.

Cons: I am using this for crypto coin mining with 5 GPUs. Unfortunately unlike other motherboards I have, this one does require the PCIe lane detect, so I had to jump a couple of pins on each slot where I used either a 1x slot or a 1x riser cable plugged into the 16x slot.

NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

4 out of 5 eggs Low-cost with extra features and control panel 01/10/2014

This review is from: NETIS WF2111 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do given its low cost. Don't expect miracles, but it does have some more features than some other simple devices.

It comes with an application that gives you a few more knobs, such as software access point (share the wireless connection to other devices without having to use a wireless router), shows signal quality, allows you to create and save multiple configuration profiles, shows information such as MAC and IP addresses, has WPS pin and push button support.

I am using 2 of these, where 1 is plugged into a PC with a wired ethernet connection and serves as a wireless access point, and the other is plugged into a 2nd PC and wirelessly connects to the 1st PC. This allows me to get internet connection on the 2nd PC without using a wireless router.

Cons: Although the application is nice, it comes at a cost: Windows won't find any drivers by default, so you have to install drivers and/or the application from either the included CD-ROM or by downloading it from netis's website (which you must access by some other means of getting to the internet). In contrast, I have other cheap wifi dongles that are plug and play with quick regular windows driver detection. 150 Mbps is slower speed than some other dongles you can get.
