This review is from: SAMSUNG Series 9 S27B970D High Gloss Black/Brushed Aluminum 27" 5ms (GTG) WQHD Height Adjustable HDMI PLS Panel Widescreen LED-Backlit LCD Monitor 285 cd/m2 1000:1 Static w/Speakers
Pros: excellent panel uniformity, very nice glossy screen with tempered glass, great PPI and resolution
Cons: price, this monitor it it's current state, and specs and build quality should cost no more then $600-$700 if they fix the stand.
I read a couple of reviews (even video with the box saying 1 million colors and other specs for this monitor. the reviewers mention a 10 bit panel with 1.07 million colors (sweet). But the panel is 8bit with 16.7 million colors.
the wobbly stand, unless you can put this monitor on a huge solid desk or concrete it will wobble infront of you when you move the mouse and use the keyboard.
Other Thoughts: If Samsung revised this monitor to include a solid base, and put in a 10 bit panel with 1 billion colors while still offering 5-6ms response then I would gladly give them the money.
next to a 30" apple cinema HD, the 970D looks better then TN but not close to IPS 10 bit.
its going back to micro center tomorrow.
Pros: This Board Works, and is stable while using 3-way SLI
Cons: 1. Lack of Bios support by ASUS
2. if using 3-way sli you cannot use a sound card due to all pcie slots being blocked.
Other Thoughts: I bought this board over the slightly more expensive EVGA x58 classified, and it was a huge mistake
this board hangs on s3 resume, and after you hard reset it gives you overclock failed message.
these problems were fixed for asus maximus and p6t deluxe
as a matter of fact those 2 boards have had their bios revised and tweaked about 10 times, any p6t6 is only on it's 3rd bios.
the bios is so outdated and very bad for overclocking
I have an i7 D0 which needs 1.35v to stay stable @ 3.8ghz and fails stress tests @ 4.0 ghz or requires way too much voltage
taking my i7 chip to my friends EVGA board and it runs stable @ 4.0 ghz @ 1.25v
I have always used ASUS boards, and recommended them to everyone, I'm verry disapointed not by the product, but by ASUS not carying about their high End product support, afterall they make more money off the cheap stuff like the p6t deluxe.
If ASUS doesn't step up to the plate and fix this joke of a Bios my next board wont be ASUS.
Pros: very fast ram, i'm able to run this ram at 4-4-4-10 1T at 2.0v with no problems at all, run memtest at those timings for 6 hours without errors, great overclocker
Cons: make sure you have vista 64 bit to utilize the whole 4 gigs, 32bit doesn't make full use of 4 gbREAD FULL REVIEW
