Pros: Great colors, bright, crisp and clear.
Other Thoughts: My first IPS panel. Admittedly, I've never learned as much about monitors as I should - I've always just got the biggest monitor I could afford at whatever time (and usually whatever was on sale). I decided I'd had enough of 16:9 1080P displays and I wanted a 16:10 24" to be primary to my old 16:10 22" HANNSPree. I will probably just buy another one of these now :-)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock B85 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great price/features.
Cons: None - I would've liked eSata, but at this price, not a complaint.
Other Thoughts: Great balance of price and features. I've only recently used a few ASRock boards, both for myself and builds for friends after using nothing but Gigabyte in the past. I've been very pleased with the 4 ASRock boards I've built systems with in the past few years. As long as they keep making quality boards at an excellent price point, I will be a repeat customer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Clean design, 2x120mm fans, not flashy. Good price.
Cons: Flimsy metal, bad drive mounting system (especially for 2.5" SSD)
Other Thoughts: This is probably the worst case I've ever built a machine in. I should've went with the old standy Antec 300 which I've built 2 machines of mine in...I wanted to try something different, and I liked the way this looked at the features on paper.
I cut myself twice building this system, and the metal is extremely flimsy. Also, the 3.5" HDD mounting mechanism is very flimsy, and one of my drives really didn't get secured all that well at all. The mounting for the 2.5" drive is a joke, I couldn't even get to the front two screws, so the drive is only secured with two screws.
The MOBO standoffs didn't go in well, and I wasn't sure if everything was going to line up at all, but it did. In short, I got the machine put together, but I would never use this case again, and I may even switch out this machine into a better enclosure eventually.
