This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball, 1 Sleeve VGA Cooler
Pros: It does what it is supposed to do, cool my video card. I've read the reviews and did the research; this was the only VGA cooler that would work on my older GTX 285. My video card runs HOT, this cooled it by 23-25* C! That's huge! Runs much quieter than the stock fan, which screamed like a banshie at high rpm.
Cons: Instructions are somewhat lacking, though if you don't know what to do with something like this without the directions, then you don't belong touching it. So no star deduction...
Other Thoughts: My GTX 285 went from 63*C idle to 40*C idle. With a 25% load it would jump up to 67-69*C depending on the room temp. Now it sits at 43*C. I have yet to give it a full burn in test, but I doubt it will get hotter than 46*C. With the vga card dissipating more heat, I had to turn up the CPU cooler fan speed. It now runs 2*C hotter than before, not a big deal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG EW224T Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 5,000,000:1
Pros: I bought this for my g/f so she could dock her MacBook Air and utilize a large display. This monitor will never be used for gaming, so the 5ms gtg is not an issue. No dead or stuck pixels were found in the couple weeks that she has owned it. LG makes great monitors...
Other Thoughts: I also have 22" monitor by LG and would always look over and drool at the size of the display. I can't say I blame her.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech K350 2.4GHz Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard - Black
Pros: Great ergonomic keyboard. Got decent life out of, though I would expect the life to last longer than just 3 years.
Cons: Well, the ghosting has become unbearable lately. It worked GREAT for about 3 years, then several months ago it start ghosting on games. This has progressed to where it is unplayable on ALL games and has affected non-gaming programs such as word documents and such. That's a no go.
Other Thoughts: It did last 3 years, but needs to go. I will shop for another ergonomic wireless keyboard as there are a LOT of others stating the exact same thing as me.READ FULL REVIEW
