LG IPS277L-BN Black 27
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I see no consumer warning or false advertising by LG, so don't be mislead.

Right out of the box, the picture is outstanding - the colors are accurate, blacks are deep, and text is very sharp and clear - all the way to the edges. This monitor displays the desktop icons that are normal size and easy to see, not tiny like the WQHD (1440p) monitors. Additionally I found no dead or stuck pixels, and couldn't detect any backlight bleeding. I sit 23" away from screen, and I see nothing wrong with doing 1080p on this 27" monitor.

Looking for useless tiny speakers, you won't find them here (Yeah!) Instead of USB ports this monitor uses MHL or Mobile High-Definition Link. The MHL connects to your mobile devices so you can stream 1080p directly to your monitor. It also charges devices when plugged in. This monitor also includes an audio-out port so you can link to headphones or whatever.

It's only when you have a multiple monitor setup that the bezel or frame should be of concern. You want as little gap between images panels as you can get. What the LG IPS277L will do is provide a smaller gap than most monitors. It would be great if no bezel/frame was around the panel itself, but this monitor doesn't do nor advertises that.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: If you want to see a thick plastic frame around the LED panel, then this monitor is not for you!

Unlike most traditional monitors that have a thick plastic outer bezel around the panel, this monitor (IPS277L)uses a very thin black plastic trim as the outer bezel, but there is also an "inner bezel" which is about 3/8" thick before the actual image of the screen is shown. This "inner bezel" is actually under the glass and I estimate the both inner and outer bezel combined is about 1/2"(12mm).

I think some folks might get confused because looking at picture on box or internet, they can only see the thin outer plastic bezel ~1.2mm. It's only when you power the monitor you the rest of the inner bezel that's under the glass (Duh)

LG is the company, who manufactures LCD/LED panels for DELL, ASUS, EIZO, HP and many more.

COOLER MASTER Intel Core i5 compatible GeminII S RR-CCH-PBU1-GP 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Successfully installed and it’s cooling my i5 2500k cpu running stable at 4.3ghz. My idle temps are 28c and stress test all cores 100% with Prime95, never got over 55c. The GeminII S is much larger than the stock cooler; however it does fit nicely in my Mini Tower Case. The GeminII’s back-plate bracket was designed in such; I didn’t not have to remove the mobo’s cpu back-plate on the Asus P8z68-m pro mobo.

Cons: The printed installation instructions were ok, but I did find the installation video on Cool Master’s website was more helpful. I wouldn’t take an egg away, however you should have a general idea of how to install a CPU heatsink & fan before you attempt this.

Other Thoughts: I would fit check and rehearse the installation process before you apply thermal paste. You will need access to back of the motherboard to install bracket and tighten nuts.
Ensure the four anti-vibration soft pads are in-place when you finally ready to install.

Used the cheaper Artic Silver AA-1.75 compound, and followed the instructions on Artic Silver’s website on “Tinting the Heatsink and Metal cap on CPU” prior to using the vertical line method. I can’t wait for the thermal paste break-in period as I should get even lower temps.
