This review is from: Sceptre 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV X402BV-FHD
Pros: A ton of people have purchased the predecessor X405BV and it received good reviews, so I thought I'd try this one to use as a gaming monitor. I also was able to get this when it was @ $299, and so far I'm happy with it. I used the calibration app w/in Win7 and only had to make a few tweaks.
The picture is solid and so far I've played UT3 Warfare (pew pew) and FSX and the picture with these is good, with no motion effects.
No dead or stuck pixels.
Cons: Mounting onto the stand was a PITA, and all four HDMI connectors are on one side. That's what knocked the rating down to a 4 of 5.
As far as monitor use goes, one may need to be careful about the text, but lowering the sharpness a bit, as well as using the Win7 ClearType calibrator, solved any problem there.
Other Thoughts: My box was tashed as well.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock G31M-S R2.0 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Just a good inexpensive solid board. My ole s775 mobo died after several years and I just needed something reliable. This fit the bill and I couldn't be happier.
Cons: The name is too long.READ FULL REVIEW
