Pros: Nice looking bezel, excellent colors, HUGE screen. Coming from a 22" screen, this one Ddefinitely adds much more immersion when playing Battlefield. Speakers are decent for what they are. And the cost of the monitor is relatively cheap for a nice IPS display.

Props to Newegg for their fast RMA turn-around (see cons).

Cons: Went through two of these before I finally got a defect-free one. First one had crazy light bleeding coming from the bottom left corner, the second one had a dark blotch on the upper right corner of the screen. It's important to note that this monitor suffers from some very obvious IPS glow. Looking at the screen from the left, there is a reddish tint, and looking at it from the right there is a blueish tint. Not that big of a deal, but noticeable during dark scenes of media.

What's with the awfully placed touch buttons? I literally have to peek under the monitor to press them. Hard tactile buttons would've been better. Also, why doesn't this thing swivel or even have a VESA mount? Even my 200 dollar Asus LCD has VESA mounting.

Other Thoughts: "IPS Glow" changes depending on what angle you view the monitor from. "Backlight bleeding" doesn't. This monitor definitely suffers from IPS Glow, but it's really not too bad.

This monitor is 1080p. I originally wanted a 1440P but I couldn't justify spending almost 100% more for those displays. Don't listen to people with graphics OCD on the internet saying 1080p at 27 inches looks super pixelated. It's not and my games look great at 1080p with minor AA. "Downsampling" helps a ton, too!

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Motherboard 04/13/2011

This review is from: MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -B3 Stepping (Fixed Sata Bug)
-Crossfire/SLI Compatible
-UEFI Bios
-Has almost all the features of the Asus Deluxe for Cheaper

Cons: -No Built in Blutooth like the Asus Models, but this can be easily remedied with an internal card or a usb dongle.

Other Thoughts: So far so good! I've had this board installed for two weeks. Did not encounter any problems such as the infinite power loop bug. Motherboard came preloaded with the latest Bios from early March, so I assume this is a new batch that fixed the power issues. It did not default to 1600 Frequency for my new DDR3 Ram, but a simple change in the Bios fixed it. Great Board and looking forward to adding dual GPU's soon.
