The Pearl Outlet FNCR8AAP-YG 14K 18
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's a necklace.

Cons: The color of the pearls that I received was (were) very different from the photo presented. Using, of all things, a lipstick color chart, I can say that they most closely matched "Coral Pink."

Other Thoughts: Some people would like Coral Pink pearls, I'm sure, but this ad showed Cranberry pearls and I made the purchase because of the color. Here's the real poke in the eye: return shipping cost was THIRTY DOLLARS via UPS ground (far east coast to far west coast). I just threw thirty dollars in the trash because this "marketplace" company misrepresented their product. This makes me angry. The seller should have listed the pink ones separately.

LG 34UM95-P Black 34
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Size and ratio. I'm a fan of large monitors, but recent experience with a 28" 4k left me wanting a larger screen with less pixel density. This monitor's size is wonderful. It's as if it were a 37" monitor, only letter-boxed. I have it paired with a 27" 1440 in portrait orientation and it's really nice to drag items between the two and not have to re-size due to resolution differences.

Cons: Cable connections point out the back instead of down. This means that a wall mount has to hold it away from the wall if you choose to mount it that way. 3440 seems an odd crop if I am working with images. For image work though, I'd really like a 38" or 40" 4K, and I don't see that happening yet.

The stand is a legitimate complaint. This monitor looks best when set to eye-height. Vertical viewing angle does affect image quality. Fortunately I already own a third-party stand, but I wouldn't want this big boy squatting down on the table.

Other Thoughts: I just changed my desktop to solid black to get a fresh impression of backlight bleed. It is barely noticeable in the lower corners and even for that I have to move in closer which increases the angle. Consider this: I'm sitting with my eyes almost a meter away from the screen, but even this far back, I'm 35 degrees off square when I look to each corner. It's a WIDE panel. IPS panels do look much better than TN when off-center, but they aren't perfect. I look forward to panels that don't require backlight. BTW, the visible dimensions of the screen are 800mm x 335mm. To my fellow Americans, that's 4.5 hands wide by 2 hands tall.

EVGA 100-FS-C201-KR 120mm Long Life Bearing ACX Active Cooling Extreme CPU Cooler, Direct Touch 5x8mm Heat Pipe
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Attractive glossy black finish. EVGA logo is present, but not overstated. Seems an effective cooler, once installed.

Cons: The fan covers the CPU mounting screws, so you have to slide the fan into place after mounting the unit. I say slide, but it's really hard to get the rubber isolators to move smoothly down the slots provided in the cooling fin stack. They snag and roll and stick. The shape of the isolators is strange and difficult to describe. I doubt I'll find replacements elsewhere if I break one. No spares were provided. In the product images on this page you can make out something of the isolator shape in one of the photos. Notice that it's not fully inserted either. Once in place, they work fine, but getting them in and out is a hassle.

Other Thoughts: Some of the black has chipped away (or was never there) on mine and the chrome-like metal below shines through. Just a small bit, but I see it. Also, I don't care for the clear-plastic fan. I think this unit would look better with black or dark smoke translucent. I don't mind the red LEDs, just that the clear shell looks cheesy.
