Pros: Got 2 pairs on "Daily Special". Wanted to upgrade to 16GB and these were cheaper than the slower RAM my AMD970 board can actually use. So far running as expected, but will never see 2133MHz unless I change MB.
Cons: Heat sinks very tall - #1 slot wouldn't clear my CPU cooler.
Scoped removing heat sinks as MB will only allow 1600MHz - adhesive looked stronger than PCB - didn't even try to pry.
Fairly simple to move fan to other side and set to suck instead of push. Still runs same temps even with all 8 cores at 100%.
Other Thoughts: Took 1 "egg" off for NewEgg's shipping UPS/Post Office combo. UPS hub 15 miles from me, USPS office 8 miles. UPS had it locally in time for delivery, but instead of going to my house, UPS takes it to my local Post Office for delivery the next day - wasteful.
Was expecting my AMD970MB/FX-8370 to max at 1833MHz, which it did with 2 modules installed. Putting all 4 in, the MB dropped it to 1600MHz.
Found hidden footnote on Gigabyte site that 1833 only works with 2 DIMMS due to NorthBridge heating issues with 4 channels active.
This review is from: Pyle PHBT5B Headset
Pros: Ordered one black & one red - red one works fine
Paired with 2 phones, 2 tablets & laptop. No dropouts up to 40 ft from source. Good sound when playing audio. Hands-free phone works ok
Cons: Black headset has constant screech from right earpiece.
Same problem with all 5 sources that work fine with the red headset.
Have sent 2 requests to seller "Quality Car Audio" for RMA - still no response from them.
Other Thoughts: Would have rated higher, but with 1 of 2 being defective and lack of response from seller can only go 2 starsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Picture out-of-box was almost perfect. No bad pixels. Monitor calibration required only slight adjustment of R,G & B gamma. Backlight very even to edges & corners. Image using DVI-D input has sharp text. Color gradients also more defined than my old 22". Matte screen does good job with reflections from window behind me.
Cons: Glossy black frame reflects windows behind me making it hard to see things at L&R of screen (flat black electrical tape stopped that)
As said by others, stand is too narrow for such a large monitor, causing wobble.
No DVI-I analog may be a problem on older video cards.
Other Thoughts: Wish it was a 16:10 aspect - miss the extra vertical text area, but using the same 16:9 panel as a 24" tv means the price can be much lower.READ FULL REVIEW
