Pros: If you have limited desk space (I live in a single bedroom corner apt) I frankly believe you cannot beat a single Ultrawide setup in any flavor. The screen real estate feels fantastic and I don't personally feel the slightly shorter viewing area is enough to knock the display.
My monitor did ship with a DUAL LINK DVI cable in the box so my MSI 560Ti 2GB/OC card had no trouble going straight to 2560x1080.
Great value if you can snag one of these under $400 like I did with a promo code and shell shocker deal.
Cons: Feels a little flimsy due to the size. I handled this with utmost care when installing the pedestal
There is no vertical height adjustment component so you may have to find an alternative means to raising your display if your ergonomics require it (there is however a tilt component which is nice)
Other than that, so far you can't beat it!
Other Thoughts: I initially received one of these broken via UPS and had to file a claim the same day (sad face). HOWEVER Newegg CS was the most helpful and thorough claims process I've run across. The rep had my claim processed and a new unit shipped the next day after verifying carrier damage via some photos I took of the box and the display. So 5 eggs to Newegg CS too!
This monitor fits my needs perfectly. I do not have the desk space for a dual monitory set up so I opted for an ultrawide configuration and am loving it. I have not noticed any light bleed from the corners and upon testing a variety of dead pixel background I have not found a single negative issue.
My last words would be to BE CAREFUL when moving and putting together the stand as the display is large and awkward to grab without feeling like you're putting pressure on the panel itself.
Pros: Semi*-modular design
Plenty cable options for a multitude of set ups.
Cons: Semi modular design and placement of non-modular cables make cable management a rather tough job since bottom mounted PSU locations put the non-modular and often first hidden cables far away from any cable management options your case may have.
24v rail and 8pin mobo cables (non modular) are not long enough to route behind my motherboard try and back out for cable management
Other Thoughts: All in all its a decent PSU for what you pay for. The cables are wrapped and are of sufficient length for the basic user. Had i seen the location and placement of the modular vs non modular cables I would have opted for a different PSU because the current mounting ability puts real cable management out of the questionREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed straight away and posted immediately under the system profiler just like it should to 2GB in each SO-DIMM slot at 1067
Cons: None at all
Other Thoughts: I believe there might be slightly decreased battery time due to the nearly doubled RAM capacityREAD FULL REVIEW
