Logitech Z313 25 watts 2.1 Speaker System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Sounds great! No issues at all (refurb) 09/07/2016

This review is from: Logitech Z313 25 watts 2.1 Speaker System

Pros: Great Logitech quality.
Good sound balance. No need to fiddle with any in-OS enhancements.
Just enough for a typical game or enjoyment of music.

Cons: None for cost.

Other Thoughts: No room #on# desk, so i used double stick tape on the bottom to mount to underside of hutch; the angle is perfect and they're light so it stays up without any issue.

ASUS ROG PG279Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Gorgeous image; best I've ever seen (and I'm an IT guy)
- G-sync @ 144Hz is the biggest upgrade I've ever seen in a gaming PC
- Very little IPS bleed (not noticeable at ALL in normal use)
- Monitor controls very intuitive and easy to use.

Cons: - Box had a bit of damage (product was fine)
- Styrofoam everywhere (product wasn't bagged)
- Needs a bit of tweaking to get good color/brightness, etc. (there are guides with recommendations out on the internet)

Other Thoughts: I cannot believe what I was missing! Now that I've seen G-sync & 144Hz I can't go back! This was the most costly part of a PC I've ever bought (been building them for 20 years) but has easily had the biggest effect on video experience (even better than the first Voodoo pass-through 3D card!).

I can't compare against the TN panel version of this but I am VERY happy with this monitor. I can strongly recommend this monitor.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 DirectX 12 GV-N1070G1 GAMING-8GD 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Exactly what I wanted; quiet, fast, good software. Perfect 07/31/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 DirectX 12 GV-N1070G1 GAMING-8GD 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card

Pros: - Great card for 1440p gaming (60fps+ max everything)
- Quiet
- Good overclocking software (easy to use & has nice log for analyzing usage)
- Cool (according to log temps); even under stress
- Log shows good power and GPU core clock management by driver/software; only pushes hard when needed (this will improve product longevity)

Cons: - A little longer than my GTX 770 (about 1/8"); almost didn't fit!

Other Thoughts: I've always (10+ years) bought another (not-mentioned) brand card for all my upgrades (and never had issues) - this is my first Gigabyte video card; went with this due to the parts shortage (1060's and 1070's sold out everywhere!). So far I'm very pleased (only had for 3 full days). I may not have considered it a worthwhile upgrade over my GTX 770 (4GB) if I was staying with 1920x1200 resolution; but going to 1440p on a new monitor - this power was NEEDED.
