Acer XG270HU 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 144 Hz looks wonderful in games

Cons: When tabbing out or exiting a full screen game the monitor loses signal. Cycling power does nothing, the only way to regain the signal is to restart my OS (windows 10) - I have to keep a second monitor plugged in so that I can have a fallback display just in case I forget that this happens and I tab out of a game.

As much as I like the 144 Hz and the price, I'm thinking that I will return the monitor. Acer has been non-responsive to my emails and people online who experience this either learn to live with it or get a refund. Of all the pc issues there are to troubleshoot, dealing with this monitor is the one that I am least willing to tolerate as I believe they should be plug and play.

Other Thoughts: The colors are terrible so you need to fix them through software and the monitor buttons. When you power cycle after losing signal all your settings get wiped.

YAMAKASI M280PU Perfect Pixel Real 4K UHD 28
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A cheap no-frills 2160 display.

Cons: Sometimes the displayport and hdmi inputs stop being recognized, apparently this is an issue with yamakasi products in general. Since windows 10 still recognizes that it is connected this causes problems. Sometimes a power cycle "fixes" it and sometimes I have to reboot, still trying to decide whether I should return the display.

Other Thoughts: It is nice to have the extra real estate for productivity, but I wouldn't recommend this particular monitor for gaming.

MSI Z87-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Pro Gaming with Killer Networking & Sound Blaster Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Everything that you would expect from a fourth gen board. The bios has some nice secondary features

Cons: After a month of troubleshooting I found the network interface and its drivers to be the cause of all my problems - bsods, random network disconnects, high latency.

If I had only googled the network interface I would have found the pages of forum complaints about the e2205 that are being ignored by the company.

Other Thoughts: The board is great save for the network interface. If you absolutely have to get it for whatever reason and you play games online, make sure you get a separate nic or you're going to be in for a world of sorrow.
