Acer G257HU smidpx 25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great colors: Beautiful, vivid, and accurate, excellent RBG range, and good latency. I didn't see much of a difference going from 1ms TN to this monitor (4ms) This monitor can do it all, very well: Movies, Games, Pictures, Photoshop etc...

Cons: Dead pixel. It just annoys the heck out of me to see a black spot on the screen that won't go away, and takes away from the beauty of the screen, and it's wonderful colors.
The controls are tough to use, it took me a while to adjust the Saturation; which is way too high...

Other Thoughts: Works just fine on Windows 10 X64 10586
Using a HD 7950 latest driver 16.4.2.
No black outs, or power shorts, that others have described with W10.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel Z170 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16D-16GVK

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 16GB

Cons: I preordered this ram for 173$, because I was looking for the best ram to go with my Z170 Fatal1ty professional gaming mobo, and 6700K CPU. It failed both XMP settings, I tried lowing the speed 400MHZ and still got blue screens, The ram works fine with the JDEC settings, which are a snail's pace 2122MHZ with a Cas latency of 16 nearly half the advertised speed...
Putting the ram in Slot 2 and 4 didn't help either, same story after I updated the BIOS to the newest version (P1.5)

Other Thoughts: My mobo is rated at 3866+ ram speeds, and I even consulted with a so called Tech advisor through the newegg chat, so I could avoid issues like this, but that was obviously fruitless.
I could of ordered something for less then half the price, and ended up with the same performance.

AOC G2770PQU Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Display port, 1080P, 144hz, 1ms . comes with all the accessories you will need for just about any video card, high speed USB, very bright. Has it's own speakers, kind of cool, but will probably never use.

Cons: This is a TN monitor, I have no idea why they did not label it as one... which means it doesn't have native 16.7 million colors(6bit, with 2 bit dithering). I think this is the reason why the colors are off so much, the blues look, purple, the reds look orange. Don't even compare this with an IPS panel it will just make you angry. I'm using the newest AOC driver, and using the latest ICC G2770 profile, then I calibrate using the windows color calibration. But no matter what this monitor disappoints in picture, and color quality.
