Newcason XC6013L Capacitance Tester with Battery in Circuit 3-Digital AC HVAC
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great value, works well 11/01/2013

This review is from: Newcason XC6013L Capacitance Tester with Battery in Circuit 3-Digital AC HVAC

Pros: I measured many electrolytics just fine with it, as well as smaller paper, film, ceramics, etc. I cannot verify its absolute accuracy or repeatability, but it was not far off and a lot better than guessing and assuming, which is the case in the normal hobby environment. I measured some caps w/ really bad esrs and it would have found them to be out of spec. This thing measures the larger values too, unlike most of the other low cost (or even high cost) meters.

Cons: Pressing on the the zero adjust knob interfered w/pcb board and damaged the control. I shortened the knob and reflowed the control.

Other Thoughts: I have been looking for an equivalent value (cheap and good enough) for over 30 years, as a hobbyist and professional. Others may have better specs or pedigree, but this is inexpensive and covers a very large range. If it had an esr function, it could cover precursory capacitance troubleshooting needs in a single instrument. As it is, it works very well.

Hannspree By HannsG SL231DPB Glossy Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs First time LCD/LED owner, coming from Trinitron 21" 11/17/2011

This review is from: Hannspree By HannsG SL231DPB Glossy Black 23" 5ms Full HD LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 250 cd/m2 1000:1 (Typical)

Pros: Apparently no dead pixels, clear natural color, clear sharp text.
Clean design, power led is dim, controls handily under right side of screen.
Was able to set gamma to 2.2 (see below).
Saw little, if no, motion artifacts attributable to monitor using a very-busy high-def .mp4 for reference.
Little or no leakage.
Did I mention low cost?

Cons: Set -way- too bright (100) from factory; probably used in burn in testing. Had to set really low (30) for my medium lighted room. But I consider it a plus as it leaves range if the LED output diminishes over the years.
The black is not a black as it could be (trinitron) during movies, but I have not tried XContrast. It is quite acceptable to me.

Other Thoughts: Visual gamma 2.2 set using simplistic, online visual tool(s). Using DVI w/onboard ATI4290. Medium lighted room.
brightness 30, contrast 50, xcontrast off, color sett. Warm
xgamma -rgamma 0.95 -bgamma 0.98 -ggamma 0.97
