Seagate NAS HDD ST2000VN000 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

5 out of 5 eggs Works well after a year of light use 09/05/2014

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST2000VN000 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Inexpensive, High capacity.

Cons: None that I've experienced.

Other Thoughts: Not the fastest, but I am able to stream HD video from this drive to my PS3. I've had it for nearly a year and have had no problems.

Dell UltraSharp U2713H Black 27

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent color gamut. Red and greens are vivid, thanks to the BG LED backlighting and IPS panel. It's easily noticed when compared to the Dell U2713hm, which uses the standard W-LED (used in most new LCD panels) and has washed-out reds/greens.

It's just about as good color-wise as my old Dell 2408wfp (still working well after 5+years), which uses fluorescent backlighting with a PVA panel.

No dead pixels.
Very bright.
Slightly cheaper than most wide-gamut LED-backlight displays.
Solid construction.

Cons: The USB 3.0 hub did not work, nor did the card reader. This is a common problem with these displays, but it is not a problem for me as I do not require the hub.

The touch-sensitive buttons are bad. They are annoying in that are finicky in how they are touched. It's gotten better as I've gotten used to them, but they seem to be a gimmick.

Blue trails are sometimes visible when scrolling black text on a white background. It's not ideal for web browsing in the regard.

OK for some FPS gaming, but not extremely high frame rate. Skyrim looked great on it.

Other Thoughts: This is a great monitor if you need a full color gamut (I use it for working with scientific images). It's big, bright, high-resolution, and cheaper than similar monitors. However, if you're just doing web browsing/office applications, casual to moderate gaming, and amateur image editing, consider a less expensive W-LED-based display.

With Windows 7, you'll need to use the included drivers rather than anything Windows provides, if you want to get the full 2560x1440 resolution.

Acer B6 B276HULymiidprz Black 27

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The 2560x1440 resolution looks great for most computer work and casual gaming. Mine had zero dead pixels. The stand was sturdy and there were a variety of inputs.

Cons: The W-LED backlighting isn't the best (weaker in reds and greens), but for the price, it's appropriate. The build quality could be a little better; the bezel feels a little flimsy.

Other Thoughts: If you're wary of the really cheap 2560x1440 monitors from Korea (which from what I've read, have less sturdy stands), this may be a safer bet.

This is a good display but I ended up RMAing it to get wider color gamut display for sensitive color work.
