Pros: Solid consistent power, more than adequate cables nicely wrapped, great cooling fan and very quiet, nice looking too. Perfect, accurately rated, 500W power supply for a very good price. Going on 5 mos. 24/7 without a jitter.
Cons: None for my build. Those who complain should research their builds better and buy accordingly.
Other Thoughts: People who complain about the cable length on a 500W power supply should understand it is not designed for a full tower case with fancy cable management in mind. The system I put together was for the president of a bank, was in a smallish case, had 2 HD's, one for automatic backups, a nice AMD processor, tons of RAM, but NO gaming video cards. Todays high end vid cards suck the juice and need to be powered accordingly. You should always ensure your power supply has a few hundred more watts than you think you need, don't stress them, they get too hot and will fail. Big cases need power supplies that are made for big cases with all the extras that you might want and then need to pay for, if you really want them. This is a very nice, high quality , 500W power supply and EVGA is a very fine company that stands behind their equipment.
Don't complain about your rebate when you do things wrong. I have spent over a quarter million dollars through newegg, and was one of their original customers way back when, and have never not received a promised rebate. Bottom line, great power supply for the right build and I would recommend it for the proper situation and EVGA products any time.
Last but not least, if it is electronic and I want it to last, I always plug it into a good quality, adequate capacity, UPS. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, EVEN DURING ASSEMBLY! If you don't, don't be surprised when the power company or some stray surge or drop in power fries your stuff.
Pros: Big beautiful screen, great color, adjustable height, swivel, portrait, etc. Nice stable aluminum base with 2 USB 2.0 ports and cord clip. Zero bad pixels.
Cons: None really. But MagicView and MagicRotation, while nice software, cause Microsoft UAC to make you crazy, at least in Win7. It will ask permission every time you boot. Could not seem to get around it with any tricks, so I just removed them and adjust with native controls. Not a significant loss. Microsoft failure not Samsung.
Other Thoughts: If you want a really nice large screen in 16:10 this is an excellent choice. It is a very nice piece of gear. Very business professional. There are faster Gaming screens for a lot more money. This is not designed as a Gaming screen so don't expect miracles from it in that respect, it is a great business, home, multi-use screen.READ FULL REVIEW
