Pros: It isn't a TN panel
Stand is very nice, gotta tilt a bit before rotate but it's pretty smooth
Screen doesn't tear like my previous TN panel (video/window dragging/auto scrolling)
Cons: Got one with a single dead [doesn't light] pixel, however it's off to the side usually where UI elements are and same goes for portrait.
Matte finish coating*
Other Thoughts: I play pinball games in portrait mode and there's very minimal contrast shifting and I don't perceive any latency difference between this and a TN panel I had before. The tables I had played for dozens of hours previously looked and played great on this IPS panel.
It's not documented anywhere but in portrait you can still tilt the screen which was a bonus for me, it will tilt far enough to clear the stand and you can lower the monitor even further if it's near a ledge.
*as my second LCD monitor ever and first serious monitor, I find solid colors show off the coatings imperfections. If you drag a window with a solid color around and you'll notice the little noise on the screen doesn't follow the image.. only bothers me a little when cleaning/manipulating images. Not sure if this is just a LCD technology limitation or the coating.
This review is from: Scythe SCMG-2100 Sleeve CPU Cooler
Pros: Fits the Antec P182 case.
Installation wasn't too bad, AM3 socket*
Installed onto a M4A785-M motherboard without obstructing ram installation**
Cons: Included fan was loud*** but to be expected of a ~1400 RPM fan(everest/speedfan readings)
Other Thoughts: *Leave the heatsink upside down (mounting-clips installed) and gently set your motherboard on top, then proceed with backplate install.
**Fan installation may obstruct ram slots but the fan-clips can slide up/down the tower giving you clearance, provided your ram only has heat spreaders.
***Louder compared to a fan I replaced it with, which was slower in RPM (~1050).
Temps are ~20c on an Athlon II X2 245 with regular usage, no overclocking.
