This review is from: Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Electric Duster, White
Pros: Does all the jobs you wished you could of done with that can of compressed air and then some
Cons: Will still need canned air to blow off CPU after cleaning it off with rubbing alcohol. I haven't tried it, but I could tell just from looking at it that not being able to blast won't work for that task... Minor con.
Other Thoughts: If you're like me and have tons of computers and electronics that you obsessively clean weekly - monthly then this is the tool for you. It's the limitless can of air you always wished you had.
Some reviews complain about noise or heat. I don't see this being a issue for the average user. The noise isn't any louder then a vacuum, and the heat only seems to be a issue with extended use of the smaller fittings... It stays cool enough to fully clean a computer.
I've already used this bad boy to clean all 6 computers in our house, our vacuum, filters, dislodge cat hair from behind things, and blow off our small deck...
The one thing I can think of that would of made this thing even better would of been the older price tag of around $40... Inflation is what it is.
This device is guaranteed to be a life alter experience for any tech junkie out there that likes to keep their gear looking and running like new.
*Final note about the noise/heat... Serious? Did you expect a all metal body electric duster to be quiet and generate no heat? I mean, come'on use common sense next time you buy something.
Pros: Good GPU for the cost
Was on sale for $180 with 2 free games
Cons: limited Vram might be a issue later on
Doesn't meet the recommended requirements of some newer games.
Other Thoughts: I bought this GPU while on sale to put into my back up rig...
I'm using this GPU in my general use PC. It's overkill for its intended purpose, but it's nice to know I have such a powerful GPU as a back up if my main rig (4770k/780/16gb) 780 ever has to be sent in for repairs.
This GPU is held back by my 8320, not the other way around. I would happily use it in my main gaming rig.
IMO you don't need much more power in a AMD system since the FX cpu will hold back this level of GPU from hitting its full potential.
*If I were buying a R9 270x for my main system, I'd stick to the 4gb models for future proofing.
Pros: Large 24" screen
Built in speakers (having used, but still nice option)
No dead pixels, light bleed, or clouding.
Smooth game play, no noticeable ghosting or input lag.
Night scenes look great compared to my IPS monitors. The night scenes on this thing almost neted it a extra star... Arma 3 at night looks amazing.
Cons: Very poor viewing angles. Serious, if I move at all from the center the colors get off bad. I know this is a TN panel issue, but my ol'lady has a Acer TN panel that I paid $100 for that doesn't have this problem.
Poor white detail. I'm not the best calibrator out there, but I was not able to get this monitor properly calibrated for white. I wasn't able to properly set up for a "worst case" setting. At minimum you're supposed to be able to see 223-234 on the set up image. This monitor was only able to do 224 - 234... (blacks didn't have this issue)
Other Thoughts: I wanted to give this monitor a 4/5 because of the price I paid ($130), however I'm sure many reading this will end up paying the suggested price of $150. At $150 this is a panel that has poor viewing angles and white details. I can tell you from personal experience with other products that you can do better in the price range.
If you're the type of user that will bust out calibration software you may not be happy with the end results.
*I'm not sure how a monitor was put out in this day and age with the viewing angles this thing has.
*I'm not great at calibrating. I'm sure someone with proper equipment could do a lot more with this monitor then I can.
2/5 > $150
***Dark scenes look great on this monitor. It almost makes up for some of it other flaws... Almost.
