Acer GD235HZbid Black / Orange 23.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Colors are nice
- 120hz 3d capable for a decent price
- Nice design

Cons: - Bought 3..all 3 have problems
- 1 has a buzzing noise every time I use 120hz; returned it.
- 1 has two dead pixels
- 1 came with a bad DVI port/Cable that makes the image freak out occasionally (I haven't diagnosed which one it is yet.)
- Backlight bleeding at the top and bottom is very evident
- 120hz is not apparent without 3D
- Not LED; would've been more expensive but it would've been brighter and work better with 3D glasses which dim the image when turned on.

Other Thoughts: Honestly I would've rated these monitors much higher if their quality control was higher. I shouldn't of had problems with all 3 monitors, I shouldn't even have problems with 1 monitor. The monitors themselves are actually quite nice and the orange finish and sharp design look great, only wish the bezel was a bit smaller for a trimonitor setup which works wonderfully with Nvidia Surround 3D.

Some side notes:
1. 120hz is only over a Dual Link DVI cable
2. There is only 1 card capable of 3d surround by itself (GTX 590) if you plan on using 3 monitors in surround with 3D you need to do SLI.
3. Power requirements are high to run 3 monitors at 120hz in games just make sure your 12V rail amperage rating is 30+A on your PSU and capable of running your video cards.

Intel X25-M 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast. Very Fast.

Operating system loads < 15s after post.
Computer ready to use <5s after login.
Office products and Google Chrome <1s to launch
Adobe products (Photoshop, After Effects) <3s to launch
Indexing is near instant.

Basically everything comes up almost instantly thanks to this drive.

Cons: None. Absolutely nothing.

Other Thoughts: Windows installs the boot manager on the first mechanical drive in the boot order. If you have multiple drives besides this SSD unplug them before installing windows onto the SSD or else you wont be able to load windows without that mechanical drive plugged in.

Also the timings are based on an i7-920 OC to 3.6 w/ GTX 295 GPU.

Logitech G700 Black 13 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs What i've been waiting for. 08/28/2010

This review is from: Logitech G700 Black 13 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: I've been waiting for a wireless gaming mouse since the G7 came out and this is finally it. After going through several mice such as the G7, G9, Razer Mamba, and Performance MX I finally found the mix of looks, performance, and functionality i've been looking for. Something that's always bugged me with mice is cords. I absolutely hate them when they tug on the mouse but one thing I hate worse than cords on a mouse is lag or jumping which I've gotten on just about every wireless mouse i've owned. Until now i've sucked it up with the G9, but its corded, and the problem with the performance MX is their lack of higher DPI settings. The Mamba looked like a winner but the glowing blue color and the feel of the mouse just wasn't for me. Finally I went through 3 G7s and they all jumped around like crazy I finally got this mouse and i'm 100% happy with it!. No Jumping, No replacing batteries, Higher DPI, WIRELESS & Wired, Frictionless Wheel, Customizable Buttons & Macros, Smooth, well Priced.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: The feel of a G9, the looks of a Performance MX, and the Performance of a Razer Mamba. Perfect.
