Pros: looks cool
probably good if they worked
Cons: one out of two sticks was apparently defective as windows would BSOD and not install (tried replacing HDD and other components, replaced RAM everything went smoothly.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -glossy screen (see other thoughts)
-tasteful modern design that's not tacky
-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
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!
