Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent fit and finish to case. Steel housing is solid and quite adequate with a great dark grey finish. Cooling is the best I've ever seen. I mounted a 270 mm water cooler for my CPU at the top of the case and 120 mm water cooler for my video card at the back. The front of the case has two 120 mm Corsair fans and a huge 200 mm side fan provided by Corsair and they are quiet. These fans also have controller on the case that works fine. The case has two USB 3.0 connectors and an adapter for USB 2.0 if your motherboard doesn't support 3.0. All and all, a great case even at the OEM's recommended price of about $130.

Cons: Almost none. The included 3.5 / 2.5 inch drive holders are kind of flimsy, but they do the job nevertheless. Corsair does not include enough special fan mounting screws, although regular fan mounting screws will work with the rubber grommets at all the fan mounting locations.

Other Thoughts: Rubber grommets are provided for all the fan mounting locations. This is exceptional quality and helps reduce fan noise. Case is listed as a full tower but its generally just a few inches taller than my mid-tower case. I appreciated the sales price and quick shipping by Newegg.

Perfect pixel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Please read my review below for all the PROs this monitor has, but since at least one owner had a problem with the display - I have added a CAUTION. This monitor ships with a DUAL DVI cable, if you use a single monitor DVI cable you will not get any display except maybe a non-distinct color pattern. The DUAL DVI cable has extra pins in it to run the display. Your video output from your computer will also have extra pins if it supports multiple monitors. I used my old Single Display DVI cable first and got nothing until I used the shipped DUAL DVI cable!

Cons: None have shown up after 3 months of use.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is holding up just fine. The clarity of the display is beyond description. You will never wonder if you need glasses when reading type on this HD monitor.

Perfect pixel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautiful Big Display! Super HD resolution! 2560x1440 Beautiful Pixels! Double your 1080p! Plug and Play perfect with WIN 8.1 Unreal price! Half the price of most other Ultra High Def monitors. That's why I got this one. It's got a fast 6 ms response for great gaming. I was getting 45fps at full resolution in Unigine Heaven GPU benchmark using two HD7850s to power the display with a score of 1400. The score is down some from my smaller monitor because this one has an extra million or so pixels to move around. This monitor earns its title as 'Pixel Perfect' since I couldn't find any dead pixels. Samsung makes the PLS panel which is a competitor of the IPS panel also used in large displays. It's a form of LCD type panel with LED back lighting which makes the display very bright and brilliant. The stand is adequate which you can tilt. The large screen will giggle a little if you touch it but its not a touch screen so it doesn't need an extra heavy base. The monitor comes in Matte and Bright finish on the screen. I got the Matte finish which is great and reduces glare.

Cons: This monitor is value priced so it doesn't include all the goodies like on screen display for controls, and only has one type of input which is DVI capable of multiple monitor setup. It does have brightness controls and an on off button. It's ok with me because WIN 8.1 or the game you're in usually takes over all the monitor controls anyway. No built in speakers or USB. It does everything I need so no eggs off. Just hope it lasts a long time. The company sells an upgraded version of this model with more features if you want to pay more.

Other Thoughts: The ad said shipped from overseas 10-15 days shipping. Well almost all electronics are shipped from overseas, but I was really surprised when this showed up 3 days after the order. Thanks Newegg! Also, this monitor is primarily made for distribution in South Korea since all the instructions are in Korean. No problem. How much does it take to plug in a few cords.
