Pros: - Beautiful 27.5" display
- Bright, crisp images
- Skyrim looks incredible on this monitor
Cons: - As others have stated, the base is a bit flimsy
Mine came with one stuck green pixel on the left side about two inches from the besel. I've tried most of the techniques from software exercising to poking/rubbing but it won't come back. I'm hoping it goes away on it's own over time.
Other Thoughts: I'm not going to dock an egg for one pixel, but it is disappointing. I don't feel it's worth the stress to pay to send it back and hope I get a good one, when I could likely get a worse one.
Intel I7 875k @ 3.6Ghz
ASUS Maximus III Formula MB
16GB G.Skill DDR3 1600
Cooler Master V8
Gigabyte 768MB GeForce GTX 460
Corsair 40GB Nova SSD for OS (64bit Win 7)
Corsair 60GB Nova SSD for games
OCZ Vertex II 60GB SSD for primary apps
Pros: - Short length for easy cable management
- Clips in place
- Moderate glow with UV light
Cons: - Glows pink/magenta, not red
- Just a moderate glow compaired to the Okgear UV Green cables which glow brilliantly
Other Thoughts: 6" worked for 2 drives (very tight on the second) but I knew they were short going into it. will have rethink drive placement for 3 SSD's)
Although it is magenta glow, it still looks very cool in the case. I color coded my SATA cables (Red for SSD's, Blue for HDD's, and Green for Optical Drives) and the effect is satisfying.
I recommend Okgear UV cables--DO NOT get Rosewill, they say UV blue, but do not react at all.
(Using Logisys 12" Cold Cathode kit)
This review is from: LOGISYS Computer CLK12UV 12" UV COLD CATHODE KIT
Pros: Easy to setup
UV reactive materials glow brilliantly with this kit
Cons: The controller box is a bit big, but I was expecting that.
Lots of wire to sleeve/hide
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for my Antec 902 case figuring I'd put one at the top and bottom, but they are about a quarter inch too long for this. The light itself would fit if the acrylic blocks at each end were filed down, but I ended up just installing it vertically behind the drive bays out of sight, and the single UV light still covers the entire case well anyway.
I'll probably put the other one in my girlfriend's rig.
