This review is from: SAMSUNG S29E790C Glossy Black / Metallic 29" Curved WQHD Cinema Wide 4ms (GTG) HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 350 cd/m2 DCR Mega Infinity (3000:1) Built-in Speakers, High Adjustable
Pros: This monitor is just fantastic to work on. The size makes it very easy to have two windows open simultaneously and definitely helps with productivity. I was hesitant to give up my dual-monitor setup, but I am happy with my decision to "downsize" to this monitor.
Cons: The only complaint I have is that it has some serious issues with glare. If there is any light source behind me, the screen washes out where it reflects. I feel like this is the result of the screen itself (whether it be coating, texture, whatever), hence the -1 egg.
Other Thoughts: I cannot speak to the audio quality of the built-in speakers. I never use them, so they were not a selling point for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MASSCOOL G751 Shin-Etsu Thermal Interface Material
Pros: You cannot beat the thermal conductivity ratings for this stuff. It outperforms pretty much everything on the market. It comes in a super-easy-to-use syringe that has about enough for one, maybe two installs. During use, this stuff doesn't cake on and solidify like most other thermal pastes do; so, removal is a breeze and doesn't require anything more than a cloth (nope, don't even need rubbing alcohol to get it off).
Cons: Pricey, but that's what you pay for raw performance.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVERCOOL sidewinder STC-01 Cooling Grease
Pros: Cannot beat the price. Each tube can get you through a couple CPU's, so the package can easily get you through over a dozen installs. Good thermal conductivity for the price.
Cons: Each tube I have opened has been pretty questionable on the consistency. Each one starts off very watery. I'd advise having a paper towel or something nearby to "prime" each of the tubes, otherwise you're going to squirt a pretty runny liquid all over your die.READ FULL REVIEW
