Acer S220HQLAbd  Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very thin
1080p resolution
Very light weight

This monitor will provide a very nice image at a nice resolution.

Cons: Very wide
Has a power brick
The DVI port is a single link DVI-D
Default setting is very bright.

The width of this monitor gets in the way in my dual monitor workstation. Would have preferred a non-wide screen but this monitor was $60 cheaper than the same resolution non-wide screen. Did not make sense to buy the other. I can live with the width.

The power brick is a pain. Also, the power cable that goes into the brick is proprietary. There is no excuse for this Acer! You should have just used the standard computer power plug for the brick. The only reason you did this is to ensure you get more money if the original cable is either lost or damaged some how.

Do not buy this monitor if you have to use DVI-I plugs. It will not support it.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a nice monitor. It provides a crisp clear image and is ideal for HD applications. Not idea for workstation application (unless you edit video) but it will work nicely. You will just need to adjust your other monitors to accommodate it.

Antec HCG M Series HCG-620M 620W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid quality build
Modular
Delivers stable power

Provides a good amount of power for mid range systems. Will power two mid range GPUs or one high end GPU (don't expect it to power the top of the line though).

Cons: Would have preferred more HDD/SSD/Optical headers. This would have allowed me to use both serial power cables and a molex to power to some of the other peripherals in my system. Not to mention a non PWM fan or two.

I also noticed this one did not come with enough PCI cables to populate all the PCI headers. I thought that was strange.

Other Thoughts: Very nice PSU for the money. I would recommend this for any mid range build. This PSU is a huge overkill for a budget built. It has too much power. Budget builds really don't need anything over 400W at most. 300W is usually plenty for a budget build. Also, if you are going to use two higher end cards (say R9 270X/79xx and up or Nvidia GTX 750 and up) then spend more money! Buy a a more powerful PSU.

ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: SLI/Crossfire capable
USB 3.0
PS/2 Ports
Decent audio chip

This is a good mid range board. The 970 series North bridge allows for good quality features. It is not loaded though. If you want that you need to look at the next higher series.

Cons: BIOS is a little difficult to work with. The mouse interface is nice but does get in the way. Could get use to it though. I just bypass it and go into "advanced mode".

Other Thoughts: Recommend this board to anyone that needs a mid range system. You can even budget this board into a budget system and have the ability to upgrade later. I have noticed some reviews indicating DOAs. I have not had any problems with mine. I may just be lucky but I wonder. I have built a lot of systems using ASUS boards. I have only had one issue in seven years. Customer support was okay but they provided me with the the information I needed for the RMAs.
