This review is from: LG 23ET83V-W Silver 23" IPS-Panel 10-point Touchscreen Monitor 250 cd/m2 10000000:1
Pros: This is a great IPS panel. As a display alone, this screen will impress once it is calibrated. The colors are true-to-life and you will be surprised at what you can see within the image details of a photo, 3D animations, or just plain web graphics.
Touchscreen functionality is plug and play for both Win 8 & 7. I have it hooked up to my Win8 custom build and it works flawlessly (although this is my 2nd since the 1st did not). The response to touch is instantaneous and noticeably better than my smartphone (GS2).
Between the 10-point touch and this being a 23" IPS panel, this monitor was a no-brainer when shopping for such an item specifically. 450 is a great price and I have even seen a 100 off instant coupon bringing it to 350. Wish I got that!
Cons: Had to RMA first unit as it would flake out on any Win7 or Win8 system I connected it to. I have numerous custom builds that my family and I are either using or have around for clients and the monitor would do the same thing on any system I connected it to--The touch sensor would assume it was being manipulated in a random area. This behavior would bring the mouse cursor to that are as if it were rapidly being touched--Just one area, the size of a finger tip--as if it were being tapped rapidly. The only fix was a reboot via power button and then it would start again within minutes.
Secondly, although this is a great deal at 450, I cannot stand visiting newegg for other parts and checking the monitor that "I got a great deal on" have a 100 off coupon code in addition to the 150 instant savings every time I'm here. It seems that EVERYONE is getting a better deal on this than I did Xp... No eggs subtracted for that one though XD
Other Thoughts: Although the RMA was a hassle (-1 egg), this is a great deal at 350-450. I Would never pay 600+ for ANY monitor unless it were a 27" 3D 120Hz OC 10-point Touchscreen IPS Panel w/ 2560x1440 res... But those don't exist :pREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mouse Pad Black
Pros: -It stays flat on a flat surface!
-Couldn't get much more black!
-When I move my mouse left, my cursor GOES left; when I move my mouse right, my cursor goes right; when I move my mouse down, my cursor goes down; when I move my mouse up, my cursor goes up! My mouse is even responsive to diagonal and circular movements with this baby!
Cons: -Not all black with that stink' logo!
-A wrist rest would ave been nice, but we only see that in the 2000 d0llr models!
Other Thoughts: I would have paid 2,500 had this been all black w/ a wrist rest, but hey, you get what you pay for!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX BLADE (ATX-298WB) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: In it's previous iteration, this case met expectations for the price level. Modern cases in the $50 range have the blacked out interior, tool-less clips, etc., but this case exceeds in aesthetics. It is great looking and something clients want. We have built about 15 systems with this case and everyone has been extremely pleased.
Cons: In it's current iteration, this case is less than satisfactory. The USB and Audio cables are now a less flattering grey whereas, before, they were black. This is important to the overall look with a side-panel window and we were happy to only have to sleeve the front-panel headers. Now EVERYTHING must be sleeved for that desired look or we can just leave the two wires to be ridiculed by us and our customers.
The second and most annoying problem in this iteration is the adjustments to both the placement of the rear fan and the style of rivets used for the side-panel window. The placement of the rear fan is in such a way that, when a cooler is installed that does not have flat screws (i.e. H50..Screws through the back), they will be in the way when putting the side panel back on. This requires one to remove the H50's screws, place the side panel, then reinsert the screws. The side panel windows new rivets hit the H50 (w/ 2 fans) and one must be removed and then reinserted.
Other Thoughts: These are not welcome revisions so this review is to get the attention of either Raidmax or Newegg. If we receive one more Blade that is revised in this manner, we will no longer use the case.
We are not sure if this is an earlier model or the revised model, but something needs to be done. Saving a few pennies on cable sleeving and production costs will only lose a company money... Not bring them that extra revenue that some guy so carefully micromanaged. You cannot expect a competitive market such as cases geared to gamers to be one that the customer will not look elsewhere if everything they've come to love is not just as such every time.
