Pros: There is almost nothing good about this monitor aside from the fact that it works.
Cons: It has a very poor vertical and a limited horizontal viewing range. Anything that is dark is almost unviewable. A black screen is a very bright blueish/purple black. I am comparing this to the NEC MultiSync LCD 2470WNX which I own two of.
Other Thoughts: Might be acceptbale to somebody who is not very discerning but if having exact colors (e.g. web development/design) or if you plan on viewing it regularly it in a manner that is not within it's normal limiting range then i recommend passing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This seems to be a pretty great motherboard with lots of features that are hopefully designed to be semi-future proof in this ever changing world.
Cons: Semi-Slow Bios Bootup - not too important but it is noteworthy.
SATA connector positions. Note where the SATA connector positions are. if your Case is not large it may be extremely tight/difficult to plug in your SATA cables. They are on the right most end of the motherboard. In my case I had a HAF 932 so it was not too much trouble. In my prior case i think it would have been almost impossible.
The 2nd biggest flaw I see is not really important as long as you don't need the IDE socket (and aren't running 2 video cards. I am and so I will point out that most likely if you're running 2 video cards you're going to use PCI-E 1 and 3 because big cards in 1 and 2 do not leave any room for heat to from #1 to dissipate.
However most large video cards overlap wherthe IDE cable must be plugged in. It will not allow a card to be seated properly/at all unless you do like me and rip off a part of the IDE cable's cover to make the end plugged into the motherboard shorter as it's plugged in
Other Thoughts: I am hoping that this motherboard lasts longer than my ASUS. I Paired it up with a i7-950 replacing my q6600 with asus p5b deluxe which died a slow death after a very problematic life.READ FULL REVIEW
