Pros: After a month of use on two of these, I'm thoroughly impressed. The brightness and color on default settings are incredible, no dead pixels so far, and excellent use for gaming. The added benefit of having not only VGA and DVI, but also HDMI is pretty great, given that you could double it for use with a gaming console or just use HDMI from your GFX card. It also comes with built in speakers. I mean what more could you ask for?
This monitor also comes with a DVI cable, which many major market brand monitors do not.
Very happy with this monitor.
Cons: Absolutely none.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Let me tell you something right now. I've been watching and waiting for these SSD prices to drop a bit, and this one is by far the best deal price:performance. I MEAN OH MY GOSH PERFORMANCE. I purchased 2 of these 60's and put 'em into RAID-0, and did a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate... in 9 minutes... I kid you not. Not to mention, after post, my windows boots in 13 seconds now. And thats after I installed all my start up applications. My mind=blown. I couldn't figure out what I was missing in my rig until I got these drives. Absolutely A++++ Product.
Cons: On very irritating gripe I had revolved more so around my chasis and these drives. I have a Coolermaster Storm Scout case. Now the drives came with the adapter to install them in a standard HDD Chasis slot, but it didn't work. I have tool-less HDD brackets, that I couldn't for the life of me get to work with the SSD adapter platforms. At this point their just chillin in a hanging position under my HDD's in front of the fan, which actually works just as well lol. I do wish there were more adapter options for the drives, but can always be fixed with a different adapter, or quick mod in the future.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this product at a physical location (because im too impatient to wait for hardware in the mail), but now the price on newegg is cheaper than the 150 I paid, after newegg rebates. I would say for the Agility 2 series, now is the time to buy if you have the extra money and wanna super charge your system. Just make sure you buy a protection plan, because other SSD's do have a reputation for pooping out after adding and deleting files on the drives a lot. But I haven't experienced any problems with these OCZ's.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: There's a lot of people on here that dock this card eggs, because of the bad software it come with. And their right, but the tuner is great. I have Verizon FiOS Cable, and opted to get this to record shows, instead of adding on to the cable bill for an HD-DVR. And it works great with Windows Media Center. Now I have WMC scheduled to record the same show every monday night with one click (record series). And its great too, becuase even if WMC isn't running, it will still auto run in the back ground if i leave my computer on, but forget to open WMC. Very convenient. Now I have LCD monitors (hooked up by DVI. And the quality of HD channels isn't amazing (a little better than standard tho). But if you have your xbox 360 hooked up to an HD tv, you can actually just open WMC on your xbox, and watch all your recorded shows through that. Very nice. Great tuner.
Cons: The software included is terrible beyond all measure. Doesn't work if you have Digital Cable like Verizon FiOS. It tries to scan channels for some reason (which doesn't make sense, because it cant scan channels when your hooked up to a box). So if you get this card, I wouldn't even bother running that software included. But aside from that..
Other Thoughts: Very awesome card.READ FULL REVIEW
