Acer S236HLtmjj 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -glossy screen (see other thoughts)
-tasteful modern design that's not tacky
-tilt adjustable
-"frameless" design
-IPS that's not slow in response time (6ms)
-HDMI x2 inputs
-comes with HDMI cable

Cons: -no DVI input (at this resolution DVI is same as HDMI though)
-very bad speakers (but who buys it for the speakers?)
-poor menu navigation

Other Thoughts: to enter USER color settings you need to press ENTER(MENU) on the word USER (not scroll sideways). the best values that I got from an indepth review of this monitor seem to be Brightness: 37, Contrast - 45, Colors - 86, 88, 92 (R/G/B)

as for the gloss, according to macro photos of the pixels on screen vs matte monitors, these are far more sharper (due to the light not being diffused by the matte covering) and clear. for some it may be annoying that screen reflects everything like a mirror when it's off

EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -will run any of today's games on ultra without breaking a sweat
-ACX cooler fans are silent on auto become lightly audible at 60%+ RPM
-relatively light and smaller than most of today's top end card thus will fit into most cases and their PCIe slot clips no problem

Cons: -price. definitely
-one of the connectors was VERY hard to connect. pins appeared straight but it just didn't want to fit.
-set up your case air streams appropriately. this card dumps HOT air into the case, thereby making the CPU warm up a couple of degrees. beware of air paths throughout the inside of the case
-came with a free game? keep the game, just take $50 off the card!

Other Thoughts: i7 920 @ 4.01GHz/12GSkill RAM/EVGA 780GTX/ASUS P6X58D/256GB Vertex 4 SSD/932HAF case/24" monitor/Logitech input devices.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -able to hold overclock if you know what you're doing and willing to experiment with timings
-OK price
-if you have a CPU overclock, don't settle for the XMP profile. the lax timings at 2133mhz are actually slower then tighter timings at 1800mhz
-design not too gaudy (ripjaws, I'm looking at you)
-small enough heatsink for an oversized CPU heatsink/fan

Cons: -not free

Other Thoughts: -bought 16GB and used 12GB in tripple channel setup
i7 920 @3.8GHz, 12GB GSkill @ 1834 (or 1810 I forget) @8-9-8-24-2t timings, ASUS P6X58D mobo, MSI580GTX 3GB, 1000w PSU, 932HAF case, 24" monitor.
