Acer H226HQLbid Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This monitor is slick looking and is easy on the eye. It's small and light and no dead pixels out of the box. Compared to my old LCD 1680x1050 I can really see the difference in color. Shinier, is the best way to put it. The glossy screen goes from edge to edge except for the bottom. DVI and HDMI, as well as and audio out port which I'm guessing is due to the lack of speakers.

Cons: It may just be a setting, but using the HDMI cable caused my PC's output to get scaled down for some reason, even with it set to 1080p. In my opinion, this is just impractical even if changing the setting is easy. Hence the egg loss.

Other Thoughts: There are no mounting holes in the back. This is not a con in my opinion as it's a computer monitor, not a television. But if your looking for something that can mount on a stand, this monitor is not the one.

Logitech G602 910-003820 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I was using a normal Dell mouse, that my dad got with his laptop for about 5 years until I picked this one up. I've never gotten a gaming mouse before but this thing just feels smoother and better. I usually can't stand wireless but at work they have us using similar Logitech mice and since I've had no issue with that one I figured I'd give this a try and so far I'm not disappointed in the least. Smooth, and the shape makes the grip seem natural and comfortable. It works right out of the box and it even comes with, an extension cable for those who have no front usb.

Cons: The G9 and G6 buttons could have been placed better, as it can be difficult to push them without moving your thumb. Not really an issue for me as I don't use them, but could be a con for some.

Other Thoughts: I really wish rechargeable was standard. It still uses the prehistoric AAs at this point which is a little disappointing, but not enough to consider it a con.

HIS IceQ X² Turbo Boost Clock H270XQMT2G2 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Keeps cool with games on ultra settings, and I haven't even altered the fan speed yet (still clocked at 20%.) No driver issues, pretty much worked out of the box for me. I haven't tested any recent games such as BF4 on it so I can't provide any accurate benchmark for that but, Final Fantasy XIV on ultra gets 50~60 fps. Tested Borderlands 2, Saints Row IV, DmC, and Injustice and all run perfect on ultra. WoW runs great as well, but that says nothing for cards these days as my HD 4650 from HIS can play that on ultra.

Cons: The only con some may find is that as most AMD products go, it doesn't play nice with others. For best performance make sure you have at the very least a mobo with AMD North and South bridge.

Other Thoughts: I haven't bothered overclocking yet as I haven't found any reason to (other than I can, and I'm not one for fixing what isn't broken.) So I can't rightfully tell you this will not have issue overclocking. Many others however, claimed that it still stays relatively cool after overclocking and there isn't any process dropping that has been experienced with other cards (not by myself personally.)

This card is enormous. I had to get a bracket mount so I could move a hard drive out of the way for room. It sit comfortably but the end of the heatsink sits on snuggly on top of another harddrive, and cables kind of had to be shoved out of the way. I currently use a mid tower and it barely fits so if you have a small case, it's definitely not going to fit.
