ASUS PB279Q 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fantastic display, it's the first time I can transfer from my high DPI laptop to an external display and not constantly wish I was back on my laptop.

Cons: You have to manually toggle the DP support.

Other Thoughts: Pay attention to the reviews, you can see the negatives are almost always either based on misunderstandings or overreactions to a single bad display (e.g. one had bad pixels, so apparently they all do)

CM Storm QuickFire Stealth - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches and Covert Keycaps
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I recently converted to mechanical keyboards and do not foresee going back. I would argue that this is one of the best "starter boards" since the price is fairly low (relative) and it has the main things needed. Granted, it is "missing" some of the bells and whistles (see CONS) of others, I don't anticipate replacing it anytime.

I really enjoy the brown switches in this board as it provides some decent tactile feedback with a lower amount of the audible tone. Note, that doesn't mean this is at all "silent" nor does it really fall under the "stealth" type of name - that is strictly relative to other Cherry MX switches.

* Ten keyless (relative pro)
* Cherry Browns (relative pro)
* Removable USB (portable)
* Style (relative pro)
* No printing/etching on the top of keys
* Multimedia keys (F1-F12 with the FN key, on MAC the PS, SCLK and PA/BR also do things)

Cons: Personally, I don't have a need for many "bells and whistles" nor do I expect them at this price. That being said, they could fall in this category:

* No Backlighting
* No Dips (if you don't move a keyboard between computers much nor reformat constantly, this doesn't really matter)
* On MAC (may be Apple's fault) - often after resuming from sleep the keyboard doesn't enumerate and register keystrokes.

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 630 DirectX 11 GV-N630-2GI 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: So far a great card, it was inexpensive (39.99) when I needed a new card for my HTPC. A few issues with Linux drivers, but great processing video and audio. Also from a great company.

Cons: None to date.
