SAMSUNG SD360 Series S24D360HL White High Glossy ToC 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: One star because they made one in White. I bought it over the white Asus ASUS VX238H-W. Boy was that a mistake. Quickly RMA'd this one and went for the Asus.

Cons: Here is why. Know what your getting before you buy this. Right now writing this review its priced at 259. I originally got it for 179. At this price, it has no tilt, no Vesa mount on the back. The stand is way too large. On another bad note, the screen naturally tilt's down at your face to hurt your eyes instead of tilting backwards. Why would you tilt your monitor forward down at your face? There is no way to adjust the screen. The Menu options get even more worse if you set it on "game mode." It looks like huge black outlines on everything looking way too sharp. Really dark colors and not enough color. Doesn't even seem like a Samsung monitor to me. I'm a huge Samsung fan. I've had my 1080p Samsung tv for 7 years and still love it. But anyway no speakers at this price .Too large to put on your desk at only 23" LED because of the huge stand that wobbles. Trust me, if you want a white monitor buy the Asus ASUS VX238H-W because its way cheaper, has speakers, and tilts.

Other Thoughts: What was Samsung thinking on this one?

TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4 GHz 450 Mbps / 5 GHz 450 Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 8

Pros: Installs on its own with windows 8.1.
Picks up five bars on my wifi signal. Pretty reliable for people who don't game on their PC. For regular web surfing its stable enough.

Cons: Became unstable after a few weeks.
Not as fast as having a wired connection. This card will give you Huge lag in Online gaming. Difference in LAG is hugely noticable. Card will disconnect without you noticing and log you off your game. Really sucks especially when playing Call of Duty: Ghosts. I have updated and reinstalled drivers many times. My wifi router is less than 10 feet away.

Other Thoughts: I would stick to a different brand. I have to use a wired connection when playing COD Ghosts. If i use the TP link wifi card i will get constant deaths.

G.SKILL Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2

Pros: Works perfectly dual channel! All I did is go into the UEFI bios and set it to Manual XMP and it picked up at timing 9-9-9-24 like it was suppose to. People tend to criticize because they don't take a minute to check their motherboard compatibility. I just went to Gskill website and used the motherboard configurator and selected my motherboard and this was on the list. Bingo. Do yourself a favor and buy the sniper series to save cash on your build.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't know why people by more than 8 Gigs of Memory for gaming. This seems fine to me all games run smoothly.
