Pros: Comfortable palmrest, very nice brushed aluminum look, bright LED backlighting, keycaps are very easy to remove even without using the included puller. Contoured WSAD/1-6 keys are a nice touch. Has a USB port that I connect my mouse to. The cable is braided, but thick and stiff.
Cons: The backlighting for the keys on which more than one character is printed (the number and punctuation keys, mostly), the backlighting is uneven because the diodes are placed above the switches, towards the tops of the keycaps. For instance the question mark key has a "?" printed on top and a "/" printed underneath it, and the "?" is more brightly lit than the "/".READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very sleek looking, the plastic is shiny and of high quality, the LED lighting is nicely subtle, and the screws are pre-threaded (hallelujah). The cable is even sleeved. The fan is nice and heavy and nothing feels cheap at all.
Cons: Not unexpected, but the fan is very loud unless you use the 1200 rpm adapter. With the 1600 rpm or no adapter it lives up to the "jet" part of its name.
I thought I had read somewhere on Cooler Master's site that the LED brightness doesn't vary with the RPM, but if it says that anywhere, it is not true. It's definitely dimmer with one of the adapters than without.
Other Thoughts: Turns my case into a refrigerator.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got it for $100. It was easy to assemble.
Cons: As many others have said, the viewing angle is abysmal, especially vertically. The color gets washed out very quickly. This is really the one bad thing about this monitor, but it's a big enough deal (for me, at least) to be a deal breaker. Also I don't know if there is tilt adjustment, if there is I haven't figured it out.READ FULL REVIEW
