Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Rated as a 7.8 in windows 7 64 bit. Cloned my other 128Gb SSD, also a Plextor. Set as C: drive.

Cons: None so far except it is already full.

Other Thoughts: Like Plextor drive ratings and performance. This is my second SSD from Plextor.

ASUS Maximus V EXTREME LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The board is built solid with quality materials. This is an Extended ATX with 4 way SLI capability (2 way SLI x16) in the first 2 slots. It has mSATA which is cool and WiFi/Bluetooth.
Comes with a 1/2" user manual that is all English and a dual function BIOS with easy and advanced modes.
I replaced my old motherboard with this in about 3 hours. I had to update the BIOS but it started up the first time. I updated the drivers and BAM, This thing is a BEAST!!!
This is probably the best motherboard available for the Z77. ROG boards tend to be pricey but are top shelf.

Cons: Not really a con but I was delayed with the installation trying to figure out how to get my Graphics card in the #1 PCIe slot. I have a CPU water cooler and the radiator is a little too big, I am running my graphics from the #2 for now.

Other Thoughts: Even with my full tower case this board is a little wide.
I had removed my CPU radiator to install it so I was able to install the mSATA/ WiFi after it was in my case.

I had a terrible customer service experience in 2008 with ASUS and have not used any of their motherboards until now. ASUS has won me back!!!
In my opinion... ASUS makes the best motherboards in the world but I feel for you if you have an issue.
I wish ASUS would improve their customer service to match the quality of their products.

BenQ Gaming XL2720T Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Ordered late Friday night and it was at my doorstep Monday before noon.
It was a snap to assemble and was very well packaged with quality cables.
Looks great and is by far the sturdiest monitor I have ever owned.
You can rotate it 90 degrees and read for hours on a single page.
Comes with USB cable and inputs for speakers and USB.
No power brick.
This monitor is solid in quality. You can tap your finger on the screen with hardly no distortion.I feel this monitor would take a couple strong blows from a baseball bat and have to be slammed on the concrete before showing any wear... the quality of materials is that good!

Cons: I wish it had a had higher resolution capability for the size, so much space for 1080P.
Is very bright and strained my eyes until I had time to adjust it.
These are not cons, just my opinion.

Other Thoughts: You get a small controller to program 3 monitor settings or navigate the OSD menus.
It was a very pricey toy but I am extremely satisfied overall.
you get what you pay for.
When I shut down my system, the monitor powers off too.
I like the fact that I have to power it on separately when powering on my computer. Saves on my energy bill.
I unboxed it and powered it on to check it out before leaving for work. It was very bright and looked wierd to me. While driving for 2 hours I noticed my eyes just were not right for some reason... I can't explain it.
When I got home, I started tweaking the settings and programmed it to my liking for regular use and gaming.
I don't have the Nvidia 3D yet but will update when I get it going. I wanted the best and am glad to choose this over the ASUS 144Hz. Not as long of a warranty as the ASUS but the quality of this monitor seems to be far better. If you can afford this monster and your wife is docile like mine, than it is a must have for gaming!!!
