Pros: Great little motherboard. I've had none of the issues others speak of with memory or usb 3.0 (knock on wood). Stable and reliable over the last 6 months of use.
Cons: Only 2 fan headers (one being cpu)
Wish Gigabyte would offer something similar to Asus for the front panel connectors, especially for an ITX build it can be hard to get your fingers in there.
Other Thoughts: Rosewill Legacy U2-S Mini ITX Case
Adata XPG 16GB DDR3 1600mhz
Zotac GTX 970 4GB (3.5GB)
CoolerMaster V550 80 Plus Gold Semi-Modular
Samsung 840 Pro 128gb, Samsung 840 Evo 120gb, WD Green 1TB
Pros: Slim bezels
Minimal IPS glow/bleed
Good black levels for an IPS display
Cons: Only adjustable for tilt
Wish it was glossy instead of matte (personal preference)
Other Thoughts: One of the lowest priced 2560x1440 monitors but simultaneously one of the nicest looking ones as well. 25" is almost the perfect size at this resolution being slightly sharper than a 27" and no need for scaling like on 4k panels.
I actually RMA'd the Acer S277HK 4K IPS monitor before this one due to bad light bleed, but this one (its little brother) doesn't appear to have the same issue. Highly recommend.
Pros: Aesthetically beautiful
4K 60hz over HDMI (with compatible video card)
Decent menu options
Thin Bezel with metal stand
Cons: There's two flaws to this monitor, one being a deal-breaker.
The first issue is similar to what was mentioned in previous review, the contrast is somewhat poor and makes images/text/colour appear somewhat dull compared to other IPS monitors (I have an Acer H236HL 1080p IPS that has better contrast and colour). It's not really washed out like a TN, just dull in comparison to other IPS.
The dealbreaking flaw is the light bleed on this panel. The bottom right and left corners have giant patches of severe light bleed and the top and sides have more minor patches of it. I find it unacceptable for a monitor at this price. (Again, I have $150 Acer 1080p IPS monitor with no light bleed). I would attribute this to luck of the draw or possibly getting banged around in shipping but I've read other reviews mentioning the same thing in the same spots. Bummer.
