AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6 GHz Socket FM2 65W AD540KOKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I am not a gamer. But for all my applications, including some video intensive ones, this processor is perfectly adequate.

Cons: Thought I would mention that performance slowed down noticably after I installed a newer Catalyst driver than the one that came with my ASUS motherboard. I recently rebuilt the system and kept the driver that came with my ASUS board and now the graphics are running better again.

ViewSonic Value VA2232WM Black 22
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bright.

Cons: Poor contrast that cannot be adjusted to a nice picture.

Other Thoughts: I had an earlier version of this model that had a really nice display. It lasted about 6 months. It was sent back on an RMA and I received the model shown in the picture. The contrast leaves much to be desired, especially when viewing movies, and cannot be adjusted for good viewing. The screen flickers or goes dead, and I have to cycle power to get the image back. When my PC goes into sleep mode, the monitor flashes alternating, BRIGHT, solid colors. I keep enabling the Auto Power Off feature, but the monitor keeps turning the feature off, so the monitor stays on when my PC goes to sleep.
