ASUS VE248Q Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Display Port
Cheap TN

Cons: I have 2 of these monitors, one on display port working fine, the other using the included DVI to hdmi (also tried hdmi 2 hdmi) the problem is, it dosen't actually use the whole screen while the resolution is set to 1920*1080 there are boarders all around mabe 3/4 " on the hozizontal each side and 1/2" on the top and bottom. Just want to clarify this is not the besel, the whole pannel isn't actually used.
Going to have to get a Display port splitter so this monitor will actually use the whole screen. Major disapointment.

Lenovo Laptop Z50 (80EC000TUS) AMD A10-Series A10-7300 (1.90 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD AMD Radeon R6 Series 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Newer Kaveri CPU is very fast with signifigantly powerful GPU for barsically all indie games.

Cons: Everyone of these cheap lenovo laptops sufferes from this a absurdly tiny battery. 2 hours is about what you shoul be expercting, not 5. for a 700$ laptop it is clear that they need to get over this stuff and put a decent battery in. (every amd lapop that I have seen from lenovo has had this problem)

Next up Screen Resolution
You have a powerful GPU in this thing, signifigantly stronger than all intel intergrated GPU's lets see you use that for something useful. Like a decent screen.

Its up to lenovo to make a decent computer for this new processor and they have yet to try

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: I bought the first version 1.0 of this board it went bad a few months ago due to the common north bridge overheat. I didn't get my RMA back, so i though I would give this one a try since it has a significantly better heat sink. Unfortunately that doesn’t matter if there are no Ethernet drivers for linux ANYWHERE. This is the final straw with gigabyte for me, I shouldn't have bought another board from them I guess I will just return this one.

Other Thoughts: Advertised 8 sata ports but 2 are esata
Heat sinks are mounted with good metal bolts compared to plastic stubs that are normally used. Still no linux drivers
