Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield Quad-Core 3.06GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601950 Processor
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very fast - overclock capable with the right cooling and no lag even when running a game with two virtual machines running in the background (I'm a geek - do you really need to ask?)

Cons: It died after 4 years.

Other Thoughts: Sadly, my CPU looks to have died and this entire class of i7s (1st Gen) are no longer available except as used and they are priced way too high. So, let's have a moment of silence for my dead gaming system.

Rosewill RC-410LX - Unmanaged 10 / 100 / 1000 Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Switch with 2-Year Warranty
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Tis switch was bought to replace one that I use to connect my TV, Onkyo receiver, PS3 and other items.
I watch Netflix on my PS3 and the previous switch tended to lose connectivity or cause buffering. This Rosewill switch was an immediate improvement in speed, no lag or buffering and all of the devices are showing significant improvement with regard to network response.

Cons: None that I have found.

Other Thoughts: I have not had any previous experience with the Rosewill brand, but based on this switch, I will certainly look at other devices from Rosewill!

LG E2750VR-SN Black 27
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: My quest began in the wee hours of late evening - the sun was a fresh crimson hue (well, the picture of the sun was anyway) and I was sold on this glorious thing they called a ... monitor ... yes, 27" was the halle grail (for me it was - just go with it ...)LG was its' given name. LG what I inquired further; E2750VR-SN was the reply. Shrugging off my inability to pronounce this exotic last name (what tongue must this be?), I delved into the svelte container to whit it was encased. I extricated LG from her container; it was love at first sight! Her lean 2" depth, her flat finish - her lucious screen real estate. It was when i plugged her in that truly could partake of her total beauty. Winnie 7 recognized her immediately and they commenced to play games, watch movies and scroll through the intertoobs lush meadows. And lo, I say unto you - this is a most glorious day; one of great joy - even through the anti-glare of her ex - 24" mon.i.tor.

Cons: I have found no vices in her; she is most perfect in her beauty. Let no man cast a pixel asunder. The back-light of the morning provided a soft glow with which to bask in her illustrator glory.

Other Thoughts: All kidding aside, I replaced a much loved 24" monitor with this one and I do not regret my decision to make this move. It not only provides me with the screen real estate i need, it offers you RTS gamers out there (SC2 and the like) the ability to expand past, what i felt anyway, is a cramped quarter on my previous monitor (well, of course *you* are not on my monitor - that's just silly) - it provides the room I need to be able to spread out a bit more, yet still allows me to see all of my defenses and various forces I have around the perimeter - it does allow me the chance to see the enemy encroaching (if they aren't invisible - I mean, c'mon! invisible?) far enough out to react rather than sit dumbfounded because I scrolled too late to see the zerg swarm destroying everything I built up. You have to admit, that's just cruel - to destroy a mans' hopes and dreams - with a zerg swarm. Really? geez ...
