Cons: As with all the machines I build, I do a thorough memtest86 run against them before even adding HDD/SSD and installing anything. Right off the bat I knew something was wrong when I started getting freezing, errors, etc. from these sticks. I think this is the first time I've ever had RAM fail memtest (first for anything, I guess)... I've RMA'd them back and will see if the replacement kit is usable...
Other Thoughts: The RAM comes in a small box with plastic covers (no anti-static or 'QA-checked' stickers here, folks).READ FULL REVIEW
-*NO* external power cables needed!
-Works in Mac Pro 3,1
-3 (digital) outputs (no more VGA out!)
Other Thoughts: This card made an excellent upgrade to my Mac Pro 3,1 work tower (coming from a Radeon XT 2600). Took some fiddling with the Nvidia web drivers, but works like a charm. Card draws all its power from the PCIE bus and is quiet and cool-running. I'm powering two screens (QHD + UXGA) in 10.11 (el captain, I believe it's called) and everything is silky smooth. I originally got this card because my old radeon no longer worked with hardware acceleration in v46+ of chrome :/ Can't believe what a deal this was!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 27" QNIX QX2710 2560x1440 QHD PLS Matte Panel Monitor
Pros: -Hi res
-Excellent response time
-Great color rendering
-No dead pixels
-Brightness uniformity is top-notch
Other Thoughts: I bought this for work, in which I: write code (using IntelliJ Idea), run builds, debug with a browser, etc. It is absolutely spacious and I can't imagine going back to anything lower res. I had to dial down the brightness as it was a little intense out-of-the-box. Text is crystal clear, mine had no dead pixels, brightness uniformity is the best I've seen on an LCD. Worked right off the bat connected to my old school Mac Pro.READ FULL REVIEW
