Pros: Stock boost settings are pretty good. They go up to 1201 mhz core clock for me.
Customer service is great, first card had a screaming fan(bearing loud as could be.) Sent them an e-mail got a response with in 30 min. I was in the first 30 days they offered to pay for shipping both ways and replace the card.
Cons: First one was DoA bad fans.
This cards fan is incredibly loud above 2000 RPM if you use a headset or have music going it's not going to bother you as much. I have a feeling it's the set up of the fans that makes it loud and not the quality of the fans.
The heat! This thing runs hot it could be that the heat sync was put on poorly or something but even at idle it doesn't drop below 40 degrees, under full load it get's in the mid to upper 70's. I have a well ventilated case with several 120mm fans and 220 mm fans on it but I have never had a GPU run that hot even overclocked.
Other Thoughts: MSI z87 mPower mobo

Pros: I have owned this monitor for 10 months now.
The colors are very rich and bright, I have it setting next to my LG TV and it blows it away on the colors and quality of the screen.
The Default menu options are actually useful where as most tv/monitors always seem to look a bit off.
The swivel stand works great haven't had any issues with it at all, I could see it being a bit flimsy at times but I rotate it daily 90+ degrees and still do not have any issues.
The high adjustment is pretty good as well. Can get about 5" out of it pretty easily and it has held up well so far.
Easy and quick to put together and start using.
Comes with a standard set of 3d glasses and a clip on set in case you wear glasses.
Cons: 3d is useless for the most part, if you own nvidia you will have to purchase additional accessories for it. Only 60hz (which I knew about going into it. And you should as well if you read the specs.)
The 2d to 3d conversion they have built in only seems to add a bit of depth for what ever you're viewing. You also have to be looking at a certain range from it and have it adjusted Perfectly then it will get about 60%-70% of the screen
The menu user settings were pretty lacking not much to adjust or change.
Other Thoughts: Cannot overclock this pretty much at all, got about 70hz and that was it. I was able to get 2560x 1440 on the screen res no problem. Though I did not try to go any higher on the screen reso.
Personally I wish I would've skipped on the 3d and just got a higher hz/resolution monitor for the money. But I cannot complain it has been good so far
Pros: A lot of buttons, Charges quickly, Has a good battery life. Durable.
I have dropped this mouse at least 30 times because I use it on a recliner and when I get up it falls sometimes. I have not had anything break on it yet.
The battery still last about 16hr's of actual use time which is quite impressive.
I never have any issues with it not connecting to the bluetooth dongle. I just plug it in and then turn the mouse on and it works. I only had to sync it a few times.
If you have to replace the battery it can use a AA battery instead of a rechargeable battery.
The range on it is amazing, I have never had it feel choppy or anything of a sort. Always smooth, even when I'm on the couch 15ft away from the dongle. It has felt like a corded mouse the entire time I have been using it.
Cons: Some games do not recognize a 2 of the side buttons so you cannot reprogram them to the game.
The Setpoint software is pretty terrible. I do not use it. Although it does what it's supposed to, it just seems to take up a lot more resources than I think a program like that should.
Other Thoughts: Overall this mouse has been great. I love it and wouldn't change much. I use this mouse for gaming and it works flawlessly. Along with having a good battery life. My hands are a bit big and this mouse is still kinda hard for me to use a few buttons with.
It is a really great mouse.
The only reason I did not give it a 5/5 is because of the software and some games not picking up the 2 side buttons (prob not the mouses fault was never a big enough issue for me to look very far into.)
