Acer H6 Series H226HQLbid Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -IPS...great view angle
-Crisp, clean image
-HDMI/DVI options
-Great value for under-$130 range
-Glossy (don't know if this is a plus for other people, but to me, the image has a different look and the screen is easier to clean)
-Looks great with Ubuntu

Cons: -Cheesy splash screen that lasts ~7 secs--no way to disable this (-.5)
-Screen wobbles when making tilt adjustments or when moving (-.5)

Other Thoughts: What's the point of a splash screen on a monitor? Other than that, it's nice looking, whether it is on or off. Definiely an improvement over my el-cheapo $99 Acer 20" monitor that had a few stuck (or dead) pixels.

Maybe it's a little too big...I see myself moving my eyes a LOT more often =)

Seagate Desktop HDD ST500DM002 500GB 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Very quiet. It's also a single-platter drive, so it might mean a slight performance gain vs. multi-platter drives.

Cons: None so far. I hope it lasts me a good five years or so.

BitFenix Merc Alpha Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs You will not regret buying this case 07/22/2012

This review is from: BitFenix Merc Alpha Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very solid, no flimsiness at all, matte finish (harder to scratch vs. glossy finish - a MAJOR +++ in my book), plenty of room and expansion, sleek and professional-looking (which is what I like vs. the cases that have light-up LED fans, gimmicky designs, etc.), more than enough front USB ports, more than adequate cooling

I like the fact that the case comes with thumbscrews that you can mount drives with - makes installation (and deinstallation, if necessary) a snap.

Cons: My front audio jack (for headphones) only worked on one side. Should be an easy fix though.

Other Thoughts: I used a Cooler Master case in my last build, and while it was OK, it wasn't nearly as good as this one. I always have a hard time finding a case because either they're flimsy or they look weird. This looks sleek and professional. I didn't buy this from Newegg, but I thought I'd share my 2 cents while I was writing reviews for the stuff I bought from Newegg. Bitfenix did an excellent job, and I thought that I should share that.
