LG 27EA83R-D Ocean Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Great resolution, brightness and for such a large monitor was surprisingly light.

Cons: Light bleed from almost the entire left side of the screen, with the botton-left corner being the worse culprit, made this an instant re-package and RMA.

Other Thoughts: Will report back again after I get a replacement, which will already cost me nearly $16 in shipping to send back to Newegg. Hopefully the second monitor isn't this bad. For a $700 monitor this is TOTALLY unacceptable. My old Samsung was half this price and had 0 problems with this.

BUFFALO DriveStation Combo 4 1TB USB 2.0 / Firewire400 / Firewire800 / eSATA 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very, very fast hard drive when using eSATA port. I just transferred 18088 digital photos from my desktop to this drive then to the laptop using a Rosewill eSATA ExpressCard. The eSATA transfer was at 95.6MB/s, making it several magnitudes faster than the FireWire 400 from my desktop to the external drive.

Love the big, but not too bright, blue indicator light.
The quad interface makes it usable on virtually any computer or laptop.
The fact that it doesn't have a fan, hence the near silence, is a huge plus after owning and returning a Maxtor 2TB with a tiny yet very noisy fan.

Cons: None so far. I'm quite pleased with the final decision to go with the Buffalo external hard drive. Comes with every cable needed- except an eSATA. Why include a FW400 6-pin to 4-pin cable and not an eSATA is beyond me, but a minor quibble at best.

Other Thoughts: Wish I would have skipped the Maxtor and Calvary back-up drives and gone with the Buffalo right from the start. Now if only they made a 3TB two drive with the quad interface...

Rosewill RC-605 SATAII ExpressCard 2 x SATA

5 out of 5 eggs Super Fast Transfers! 12/13/2008

This review is from: Rosewill RC-605 SATAII ExpressCard 2 x SATA

Pros: Just finished transfering 18088 digital photos, which amounted to a whopping 211GB of data. Transfer rate was 95.6MB/s over the entire time. Much, much faster than the USB connection I used on my desktop.

Cons: None! At $35 on sale this was the bargain of the century in my book. Blows away USB, FireWire400/800 by so far it's not even funny.

Other Thoughts: At $35 I wish it came with at least one eSATA cable, but considering they cost about$6 it's not a big deal really.
