LG 23MP47HQ Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Everything is as advertised. Nice and bright, all the pros of a nice display at a great price. I didn't test speed or colors. Since HDMI is the only digital input, it probably depends a lot on how you're driving it.

Cons: I subtract half a star for HDMI being the only digital input option. What year is this? I get that it probably was to save a few bucks, but in this day, I'd rather drop the Dsub VGA and have one or two more digital options.
The other half star is for a poor included stand. It feels like incredibly light weight plastic that will snap any moment. Again, probably to save a buck. It does have VESA screw mounts, so if you're buying it for that, it won't be an issue, although you should be aware that this thing isn't super thin. The monitor is almost 0.65" deep, and the place where you mount doubles that before you even get to measuring your mount.

Other Thoughts: Get what you pay for. If you want a display, yep. If you want all the bells and whistles, be warned.

MSI Z97M-G43 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works as advertised. All features are there and work. Handles my v4.5 Haswell perfectly, um, well. Not using it for a high powered rig, but wanted a Z97 chipset and 3 monitor out. This fit the bill as the cheapest one on the day I looked.

Cons: BIOS defaults are odd to me. For Windows 8.1 and 10, I had quite a bit of tweaking to do. Now, mind you, again, I wasn't building a high end system, so maybe I wasn't their "target customer", but still, you expect the advanced features to be off and the basic ones to be on, not the other way around. Nevertheless, the BIOS is laid out well and easy to navigate and setup. I immediately turned off the ugly POST screen, and will turn off legacy BIOS POST all together as soon as everything is working right. No one cares to see that garbage anymore.
Memory slots are really, really close to CPU. Probably not quite the best layout for OC, but many other models are very similar.

Other Thoughts: It's early, but I could see myself getting another MSI.

iStarUSA D-213-MATX Black Metal/ Aluminum 2U Rackmount microATX Server Chassis
  • Verified Owner

3 out of 5 eggs Other reviews are spot-on 05/28/2015

This review is from: iStarUSA D-213-MATX Black Metal/ Aluminum 2U Rackmount microATX Server Chassis

Pros: This works exactly like the other reviewers stated. It's pretty cheap, good basic rack mount case. I haven't tried mounting it yet, but don't anticipate problems. There are a ton of different screws included. Clean lines.

Cons: Biggest con - advertises two 80mm fans. There were exactly zero fans included. Not a big deal since I didn't want two loud fans and got two really quiet ones instead, just hate being lied to. The insides are a little tight, particularly at the front where they put the drive bays. The 5.25 external bay is really hard to get out unless you have just the right tools for the job. My mobo power connector really gets in the way of the 3.5 internal drive bays. At most I'm going to be able to fit one drive in here, which is all I need, but you may have other plans... look closely at the pictures and decide if you'll be ok or not. It is really tight!

Also, it seems like there were different screw threads for everything, so I had to keep trying different screws until I got the ones that seemed to fit.

USB on front is 2.0 which is odd, but something I knew and could live with.

Other Thoughts: CX430 PSU fit wonderfully. I am using an MSI Z98-G43 micro mobo. Fortunately, I went with a M.2 system drive which is a good solution to the 3.5 drive mounting issue.
