ASUS VE247H Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price.. After all instant savings, cyber Monday savings, my gift code and mail in rebate this monitor only will cost me $90.

Small bezel, they're not tiny but they are smaller than my LG monitor I bought in 2009. I like that its 1080p, as opposed to my 1680x1050 monitor. Fast response time, no dead pixels. In great shape when I got it.

Cons: Just like all other reviews... the settings suck! Point blank period! All preset setting just plain ole suck. I've spent so much time trying to get them right and still felt unsatisfied when I got done. A friend told me not to get an Asus product, but I did anyway. Had to dock an egg.

Other Thoughts: Now if you've read a lot of the reviews on this monitor, please do not feel discouraged and shy away from it. Although the pre-loaded settings suck, I came across a review on 11/26/14 by A.T. who listed what he used for his settings. I use those settings and I am actually quite happy with those settings.

ASUS OSD "Splendid" Standard Mode Settings
Brightness: 85
Contrast: 80
Color Temp: User Mode (R-100,G-95,B-100)
Smart View: Off

Try those settings and see how you like it, before you decided to spend more of your money just to send it back.

I do recommended this monitor, just sucks you have to goof around with the settings in order to fill really happy.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL8D-8GBXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Blue fins to match the blue theme of my build. RAM installed and worked right out of the package.

Cons: Price, but doesn't deserve an egg to be docked.

Other Thoughts: Previously had x4 2gb sticks of Kingston pc1333 and upgraded to theme x2 4gb stick of pc1866. Had to go into the BIOS to set the profile in order for ram to work at rated speed, but knew that before I even bought it due to the reviews. Not really noticing any speed increase, but that was also kind of expected. May be purchasing and another pair of these.

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price, packaging, SATA III and 64MB cache.

Cons: None at the moment

Other Thoughts: Bout this to replace a Samsung 640GB sata II HDD. Using this drive for nothing but media storage. Music, photos, videos. Wasn't looking to spend lots of money and this drive helps. I like the 64MB cache and sata III and can see videos get transferred a bit quicker. I always buy WD HDDs. I've never even recommended anyone to buy any other brand HDDs.
