Acer B6 B276HULymiidprz Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: USB 3.0, can also charge devices with monitor off.
Excellent brightness, contrast, and adjustment options (RGB and CYM saturation and hue adjustments)
PIP works great; i can watch tv while babysitting a render
The stand is great.

Cons: The speakers sound worse than those on my ancient Inspiron 5150 from 2003; seriously, earbuds cranked up and plugged in are louder and have more bass. I only tried them to see how they sound; i use Behringer truth studio monitors or Sennheiser HD-25-II's.

The manual explains basically nothing. Its a monitor though; easy to figure out.

Other Thoughts: The stand was surprisingly well built; i was going to go with the off-brand korean WQHD displays, but didnt want dead pixels or other issues, USB 3.0 and other display inputs were also a plus. This came in absolutely perfect, the stand allows rotation at the base, height adjustment with one finger, and screen horizontal/vertical modes quite easily.

It was also near spot-on calibrated from the factory in sRGB; i had it close as it gets in minutes.

I will be picking a few more of these up for work; the first replaced a pair of LG 19" 1440x900 monitors i had since 2007; a very nice upgrade.

This is my 3rd IPS LED backlit device; the others are 1280x800 7" field monitors for work. All three of them display almost exactly the same gamut and have similar output, which is phenomenal that i can finally get the same image from cam monitoring, to editing, to output.

5 out of 5 eggs Great performance 03/09/2011

This review is from: areca ARC-1222 PCIe x8 SATA / SAS RAID Card

Pros: using laptop HDD's (samsung MP4's) for an 8 disk (7 active + 1 hot spare) yields very good results (around 500MB/sec reads and 450MB/sec writes).

Really woke up CS5 vs my old RAID 0 setup (4x 80 GB Fujitsu 2.5" 7200RPM 8MB cache on the ICH10R which was hitting 240 MB/sec read/180MB/sec write (Fujitsu's are from maybe 2006).

Cons: a bit pricey; cables seem a bit, um, cheap. i ended up covering them with automotive wire looming.

Other Thoughts: wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

Galaxy 60XGH6DP4BXK GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Razor 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: does exactly what any other (non OC) GTX 460 will do. I use it for CUDA/MPE in CS5 (i dont play video games) but i did need a single slot so i could fit other cards in my motherboard.

Cons: LOUD; fan will regularly hit 4,000 RPM's which is annoying. measure your case; it is longer than most. Fit just fine in both of mine (gateway mid tower and HAF 932). Also a bit pricey. Dont touch it after heavy use; the cover is metal and part of the heat sink.

Other Thoughts: wish it was cheaper.
