ASRock Z97 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Nice motherboard, but a couple of issues. 12/27/2016

This review is from: ASRock Z97 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Supports Intel Core CPUs and 32 GB memory. Onboard video from Intel HD Video in the CPU.

Cons: Mine wouldn't output a monitor signal for initial setup via DVI port. I had to use the VGA instead, despite Intel HD Graphics 4600 in my i5. To install the drivers, the program on the CD wantonly installed Google Chrome browser and Norton Security without asking, so I had to uninstall those items in order to install the stuff I prefer. Maybe Chrome can sit idle with Firefox being the default I use, but the Norton had to go for sure before I installed Zone Alarm

Other Thoughts: Overall, seems like a good, solid MB. Other bad software inclusions that need removal after installing the drivers include some "ASRapps" adware that butts in to everything you do on the computer and spams their unknown app over your preferred software. Also found a fast charge app for items you charge from the computer's USB ports. Not sure if I should keep or remove a "network accelerator" thing made for gaming, nor even if it works with my wifi card instead of the onboard LAN port.

Acer KN242HYL Black 23.8

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Not well suited to viewing video or editing graphics. 12/18/2016

This review is from: Acer KN242HYL Black 23.8" 4ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Pros: Full HD resolution. Nice, big screen. Power button easy to get to (to save energy) when I turn off my computer. Ports for VGA, DVI and HDMI cables.

Cons: Default color settings look terrible next to my LED TV. The presets are all ugly from the get go, and if you get user settings that look good watching video set outdoors in daylight, then video set indoors or at night tend to look like sepia. Find user settings that look decent for video set indoors or at night, and in daylight people look light blue.

No HDCP support via VGA cable.

Other Thoughts: I initially thought that the lack of HDCP would be the biggest issue with this screen, but that was before I watched enough streaming TV on it to see the bigger problem with the color issues described in the cons. Now I'm convinced I need a different monitor and to just eat the sale price at which I got this one.
