Pros: +The monitor displays beautifully, Freesync is a huge positive.
+The display stand is very girthy. It is definitely well-built.

Cons: -To get this display to use all 144Hz you must do a very convoluted installation, There are no instructions to tell you how to do the entire process successfully. This monitor is definitely no plug-and-play. To get Freesync to work, you must navigate the On Screen Menu and enable the Display Port version 1.2. Then you have to navigate to a different menu and allow for variable refresh rate (I forget the name of the command). You also must install the ViewSonic specific monitor driver inside of Windows. There's no easy file to click and install, so you have to navigate to your display adapter within your device manager. You must upgrade the driver manually and point it to the file on the CD that came with the monitor. After all is said and done, you finally have a Freesync monitor. I had to find this out by researching forums where people had the same issues.

Other Thoughts: The monitor is very nice. If you can handle the uncomfortable install/setup process mentioned above, then it is definitely worth a buy. If you are looking for a monitor that you plug in and it works, this is probably not the monitor for you. A little more effort on ViewSonic's part to ease the user experience would have gone a long way.

5 out of 5 eggs Definitely Worth the Purchase 04/12/2014

This review is from: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro Lifetime 1 PC

Pros: I've run the free version of this software for more than a year now and have been so happy with the free version that I purchased the retail version. It has saved me from quite a few malware attacks.
More importantly, it will run successfully in Windows Safe Mode and will update in Safe Mode w/Networking so you can remove some of the more involved malware attacks. It also actively blocks 'known' malicious sites from leaching data from your browsing sessions. (This is a nice feature if you are torrenting)

Cons: Absolutely nothing about the existing program.

3 out of 5 eggs Worth free, not $$$$$ 04/12/2014

This review is from: McAfee LiveSafe Unlimited Device - 1 Year

Pros: The interface is easy to understand and doesn't bother you with annoying popups. It is not as resource intensive as other reviews suggest. If you have 8GB or more of RAM and a CPU with 4 or more threads you should not notice much of your resources being bogged down. However..... (read below)

Cons: ..... the product is not worth the retail price. You're essentially getting unlimited PCs and Mac security for the retail price per year. I'll let that up to you to decide if it's worth it. I wouldn't trust the Android/iOS device protection as there is no way for an "app" to be able to monitor the "behind the scenes" workings of either mobile operating system. Don't be fooled by the clever marketing of some wonky mobile protection offered.

Other Thoughts: All in all, if you have more than 3 Mac/PC in your household I would say that this is a worthwhile investment. Don't expect to get great things out of the mobile security.
