Microsoft 3XJ-00001 Black 104 Normal Keys USB Wired Ergonomic Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 for Business
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice, value keyboard line from Microsoft. Rise in the center promotes more natural hand position.

Cons: Key positions are anti-ergonomic -- worse than a standard keyboard!

Look at the pictures, and specifically the angle of the QAZ keys. The Z key further right than the W key! It forces the left hand to curl in this ridiculous position to hit it with your pinky. And then you have to press it with the side of your finger. Or force an even sharper wrist angle to hit it (then you can't hit the Q). Or just have you move your hand position if you want to hit the key with the pad of your finger.

None of this is efficient, if you want to type. It's also ironic that the ergonomic slope makes this worse.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard might be ok for the normal computer user, but I would say anyone going at 60+ wpm would have issues.

I'm also not a fan of midget function keys, but then again I use them a lot.

This is not a worthy successor to the 2000.

LG 29EA93-P 29
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice even color in all ranges. Good response time and no issues with games. Extremely bright. Has a standard VESA mount. Amazing for watching movies. Has lots of connections on the back, and comes with cables for each.

You can also turn off the power LED and the on/off sound effect in the monitor settings. It's a small but welcome detail.

Cons: As some other reviewers noted, sometimes the power button stops responding, which is somewhat disconcerting. I rarely use it though; the monitor is always on or in sleep mode. I'm making note of that LG customer service number just in case.

One stuck pixel about 2" from the corner. I can't see it unless it's full black, and if my face is in front of the corner. I can't see it at center orientation at any distance. So I got lucky.

You have to play with the settings (especially Sharpness) to get games to look right.

Very slight fading of brightness in each of the corners. I can't see it during normal use.

I'm not a fan of the lack of regular bezel on the top and sides. It looks amazing when the monitor is off, but I feel it's kind of gimmicky. The very tip of one corner is also slightly different, as if the anti-glare film was re-seated.


If not for the pixel and flaky power button, I would have given it five eggs.

Other Thoughts: My configuration for Mass Effect 3 (multiplayer):
I'm on Windows 8 and use Widescreen Fixer with one of these monitors. Under settings, uncheck "Automatically Detect Resolution". Change Display Count to 3. Uncorrected Resolution to 5760 x 1080. Bezel-Corrected Resolution to 2560 x 1080.

This scales your HUD at 1920 x 1080 so it's not off the screen. Note that if you use the (unnecessary) Character Scale Workaround Hotkey (default J), Geth Hunter Mode will not work correctly until you restart the game. I remapped it to something obscure and don't hit it at all.

----

My eyes are kind of sensitive, so I have it set at 29% brightness, 70% contrast, and slightly lowered blue. I still find whites incredibly bright.


I don't use this monitor for anything that requires perfect color, but I would say any computer enthusiast would be happy with it.


I had to manually install the monitor profile so it is recognized properly by Windows.

ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs good, but change bios settings 09/29/2012

This review is from: ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Works.

The XFast ram is pretty easy to set up and hasn't caused problems. At first I thought it was slow compared to some other ramdrive programs, but when I ran others on my system they were comparable. I am running 32 bit windows so it is using the extended bit.

Cons: I had an issue for the first several months where the computer would freeze without warning, nothing in syslogs. It seems to have been caused by a very aggressive south bridge temperature protection. I have the MB mounted horizontally, and low airflow settings, so heat must have been concentrating there, even though the sensor reported something like 50C. I bumped up the fan speed, but eventually turned it off altogether in the bios. Since then I've not had problems.

The fan speed controls can be adjusted, but even at 1 (of 10) they will run a fan pretty fast.

Other Thoughts: It reads my corsair ram as 1300 by default, instead of 1600. I have every ram slot filled with no problems.

The southbridge temp issue was problematic for several months, but now resolved.
