This review is from: ASUS VS278Q-P Black 27" 1ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD/LED Monitor, 300 cd/m2 DCR 80,000,000:1, Dual Built-in Speakers, VESA Mountable, Extensive Connectivity, Dual HDMI/D-Sub/DisplayPort
Pros: Great size for the price and the refresh rate is great. The monitor is bright and the colors are vivid. The performance of the monitor is really pretty good. I use this monitor for work and for play and have logged hundreds upon hundreds of hours in front of it. Games look great on it and I have plenty of pixels for my liking.
The speakers built into the monitor are pretty good compared to some monitors. Of course, you'll likely want to get an external set though if you play games or listen to music using your PC. For regular business or personal use they should suit your needs.
Cons: The negatives for this monitor are primarily in the construction. The stand is not adjustable, so the height is the height. The stand itself is a little thin, so the monitor wobbles slightly when pressing the buttons on it or when the desk is bumped. If you are constantly bumping into things then this monitor may not be for you. I don't have an issue with it though. The menu's and instructions that come with the monitor aren't the easiest to follow which is something I find true of many Asus products.
Other Thoughts: I'm really satisfied with this monitor. If I had the dough to purchase another one I wouldn't think twice. It's light, fairly thin and looks nice. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to get a big monitor without spending a big amount.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G510 Keyboard
Pros: I really like the backlit keys on this keyboard. I built a system that uses a lot of red in the design and thanks to being able to customize the color of the backlight I was able to match the rest of my setup perfectly. When the room is dark and my computer is on the red lights look fantastic. There are plenty of customizable functions on the keyboard; in fact, probably more than I'll ever use. Gamers who like having plenty of options for macros and customizable keys will find plenty here. The keyboard itself has a great feel to it and sounds solid while typing, but not clicky or particularly loud as many other mechanical keyboards feel. The LCD screen is a nice addition and matches whatever color you choose for the backlit keys. The LCD screen has some nice features such as being able to monitor CPU and RAM usage and when playing games the screen often shows game specific stats. You can even switch to have it stream news headlines, etc.
I've had the keyboard for several months at this point use it daily. It doesn't show fingerprints really at all so it still looks clean and attractive.
Cons: Honestly I can't find any real flaws with this keyboard.
Other Thoughts: This was a great feature/cost option for me. My primary reasoning to get this keyboard was to have a quality keyboard that I could adjust to match the lighting of the rest of my setup. I've been pleasently surprised with everything else from the moment I set it up. There are plenty of keyboards out there that do more, but honestly I don't think I'll even be able to use this one to its full potential. And I felt the price was fair. I would definitely recommend the Logitech G510.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Lollipop Chainsaw Playstation3 Game
Pros: There are a lot of unlockables in this game and the soundtrack is really pretty good. It's not as over-sexed as some of the initial reviews make it sound. Sure there's some suggestive themes, but anyone who played and enjoyed No More Heroes won't find anything particularly disturbing here. It's a fun game with enjoyable characters and some mature humor. What's not to like?
Cons: The game's a little short and if you're going to play in a marathon session the gameplay can get somewhat repetitive. However, the developers mix in a lot of gameplay elements to mix things up from time to time.
Other Thoughts: The cheerleader even runs like Travis Touchdown of No More Heroes. This game isn't going to take you long to finish, but the characters are memorable and it's generally a lot of fun. I'd very much like to see a new No More Heroes that borrows the improvements made to the combat and upgradeble move sets that this game features.
I absolutely recommend this game to any No More Heroes or Zombie Bikini Squad fans. It's actually pretty well done despite what you may have read elsewhere.
