LG 39LB5800 39
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great tv and monitor 04/15/2014

This review is from: LG 39LB5800 39" Class 1080p 60Hz LED Smart HDTV

Pros: I contacted LG to confirm the LB5800 series uses an IPS panel with full array LED backlighting. I was looking for a good gaming monitor; so far this tv does not disappoint. It's sits on the desk nicely, no wasted real estate thanks to the sleek bezel and stand. Colors are bright and vibrant, blacks are deep, screen is plenty fast for gaming. Input from PC source is limited to 60hz on this and all other tv's anyway, so 120hz panels are irrelevant. I can confirm the tv has a gaming mode which turns off processing. I can't assign a value to input lag, but can note it feels much more responsive over my old LCD that did not have a gaming mode. I find these settings optimal for monitor/gaming:

backlight = 80
contrast = 80
brightness = 50
color = 50
sharpness = 10
picture mode = game
energy saving = off

For tv, I've watched a few Netflix movies, streaming worked very well with no buffering, all movies tuned in at HD which looked great. The sound is okay, it's a tv so one shouldn't expect booming bass or room filling positional audio.

Lastly, LG does a great job with packaging on this one. Box material is very study, with corners and center box holding fast to protect the tv during transit. Very easy to put together, had it up in running in under ten minutes. Overall, I'm liking this tv.

Cons: remote a little clumsy/old style. LG has an egglike remote that could have been included.

Other Thoughts: For tv, I've watched a few Netflix movies, streaming worked very well with no buffering, all movies tuned in at HD which looked great. The sound is okay, it's a tv so one shouldn't expect booming bass or room filling positional audio.

Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLT2KIT4G3D1869DT1TX0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Okay I've never been one for over the top bling or flash; some of the memory out there looks ridiculous! This stuff looks sleek, professional, tough, and high tech all at the same time. Low profile black PCB, tough industrial looking heat spreaders, stickers are not cheap paper, they're thick matte finish plastic of some type. The matte color is MUCH more attractive than in pics. Easily the best looking ram I've owned. On performance, I grabbed two pair for 16GB total, popped them onto my Asus X79 Deluxe where they were immediately recognized and programmed in to advertised speed/voltage. Perfect operation. Quad channel pops with these! Highly impressed, thanks Crucial and Newegg.

Cons: Memory prices are up right now, more a general than specific con.

Other Thoughts: If you want a great performing and great looking set of memory without all the frills, strongly consider these. Even Corsair product looks cheesy compared to these. Killer military/industrial look, subdued color much more attractive than pictured. Best of all, they work from the start. Lifetime warranty from a sterling company.

EVGA 03G-P4-2888-KR GeForce GTX 780 Ti Dual Classified w/ EVGA ACX Cooler 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card likes extra voltage to sustain +1150MHz. Many take this card straight to water; but for those running ACX cooling wanting stable 1200MHz clocks, see my 780 Ti Classified mod thread on EVGA community forums (700 Series). I have what I feel the most stable bios based on latest official release.

Cons: Not really a con for card itself, but kinda stinks AIB partners must keep to 1.187v; this GPU is quite capable otherwise.
