Pros: - 16x10 ratio
- USB 3 ports
- Best OSD controls I've used, with customizable shortcuts is a nice added touch (I set them to PIP)
- Excellent colors
- Very sturdy stand, doesn't wobble or shake like many others.
- Stays cool (my westinghouse 24" put out a lot of heat)

Cons: - Refresh rate is a little poor for fast-paced FPS games
- Warranty on dead pixels is unacceptable

Other Thoughts: This could be a 5 egg monitor, great picture and easy to navigate controls, but I'm docking one egg because after less than a year I have two dead pixels in the middle of my screen. Like a smudge of dirt I can't clean off and it's a huge annoyance. According to Asus, anything less than 5 dead pixels is considered acceptable. Not in my book! My Westinghouse is from 2007 and still has 0 dead pixels, this Asus from 2015 and already has two, completely unacceptable!

CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good start for new overclockers 11/19/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: Quiet and effective. Easy install

Cons: It recommends you have the fan blow into the case over the radiator for maximum cooling efficiency. The downside to this is you'll find a lot more dust inside next time you open it. I'd suggest a micro filter of some sort in front of the fan.

Other Thoughts: At stock, I didn't see much difference in temperatures. But overclocking my 3770K to 4.7GHz reached about 70c at full load, which is still well within Intel's specs. Idle I had about 32c.

BUFFALO LinkStation Duo 2-Bay 4 TB (2 x 2 TB) RAID Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-WX4.0TL/R1
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Much faster transfers than my previous LinkStation 1TB model, and smaller. Web interface is also more responsive.

Cons: The fan! Barely a year old and the fan is making a really irritating noise. Cheap fan needs replaced.

Other Thoughts: I needed more space with raid 1 and for just a little more than what the two drives would've cost me individually, I picked up this model for under $250.

Mine came with Seagate barracuda 7200rpm 64mb sata6 drives. Transferring 1GB file to the device averages 45MB/s over gigabit network. Reading a 1GB file transferred at around 85MB/s with bursts up to 120MB.
