Pros: It has fantastic color reproduction, smooth viewing angles, almost no perceptible backlight bleed (a common problem with cheaper IPS panels). The stand is fantastic. Don't overlook how important a good adjustable monitor stand is for viewing comfort.
Cons: It is moderately expensive. This is definitely a professional-grade monitor, you pay a premium for the best they have.
Other Thoughts: I had one of the cheaper, less color-accurate Dell U2412M monitors of the same size and resolution. The backlight started flickering occasionally. It went away after some time but was annoying enough to warrant a call to Dell. They quickly shipped me a replacement that was this model, the U2413. I was surprised that this model is noticeably better looking even without the flicker. It comes factory calibrated, which is fantastic.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price, excellent cooler, solid build quality, metal cover instead of cheap plastic. Small enough for a mini ITX build with minor case modification in a sugo sg05, other 7950s are simply too big.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: currently clocked at 1200mhz core, 1575 memory, 1.250v. Cool as a cucumber. With a custom fan profile, noise is moderate but temps are sub 60C even while stress testing hard. Incredibly effective cooling, I must say.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG05BB-450-USB3.0 ALL Black Plastic / SECC Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case with SFX 450W 80+ Bronze Certified / Single +12V rail Power Supply with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)
Pros: Small size
high quality power supply
quiet case fan and PSU fan
Cons: Cable management is a PITA
Other Thoughts: I got an MSI 7950 twin frozr edition to put in this, as it was the most powerful card I could get that would conceivably work in this case. It *does not* fit normally, there is exactly 10" inside the case for a GPU, and even then it will rub up against the case fan, however with the heat sink cover on the twin frozr card, the total length was more like 10.25". I had to cut out a section of the frame to allow this GPU to fit. It is covered by the plastic front panel which just barely has room over the heat sink cover. If you are not comfortable with metal cutting tools you must make sure the maximum length of your video card is less than 10".
Other than that, works great with my i5-3570k, Asus p8z77-I mobo, samsung 840 pro SSD, the MSI 7950 twin frozr, and a generic LG slim dvd drive
