HP LE1911 Silver 19

4 out of 5 eggs Good, servicable monitor 06/23/2010

This review is from: HP LE1911 Silver 19" 5ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 1000:1

Pros: Good monitor for the price. Just plug it in and off it goes--the auto-adjustment software was already loaded, I didn't have to adjust a thing.

Cons: Colors are not as "vibrant" as some other monitors I've had. Like all HP monitors I've seen, the color gray has a yellow tinge.

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor for presumed HP reliability---I've never had a monitor last much past the warranty expiry date. BTW, "D-sub connectors" (as shown in the specs) are VGAs.

NETGEAR WGR614 Wireless-G Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Although I noticed some older negative reviews, this router (version 9) works just fine. I was particularly pleased with its range; It's 90' to the other end of my house where I got 2 signal strength bars on a Mac laptop.

Cons: Nothing of significance.

Other Thoughts: I had no experience with routers, and found the quick start guide misleading. Read the first part of the complete user manual first before you do anything. I couldn't get the auto install to work, and used the very simple manual install instead.

4 out of 5 eggs Speakers Worthless 12/05/2006

This review is from: Acer AL1917ABMD Black 19" 8ms LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1

Pros: I've had my AL1917 about three months now. Good picture, no bad pixels. It took awhile, but I finally got the picture tuned to something that looks pretty good (use the "cool" setting).

Cons: The speakers have turned out to be far worse than I initially thought. Even tho I would accept poor sound quality, I didn't expect volume to be a problem...95% of the time the volume is so low that you can't hear anything (even with PC's software settings cranked to the max). The speakers are pretty much unusable...if you want any sound at all, you're going to have to plug in an auxiliary set.
