This review is from: QNIX QX2710 Evolution II 27" LED DVI-D Monitor QHD PLS Panel by Samsung MATTE Screen
Pros: - Colors are amazing. Coming from a high end VA panel (step up from TN), the difference is like night and day. If you're gaming on a TN panel and switch to PLS, you'll never be able to look at a TN panel again.
- A 1440p monitor at this price is excellent.
- No stuck/dead pixels on my monitor after extensive testing on several full screen color backgrounds. Your mileage may vary, however.
Cons: - Very minimal (and easily fixable) backlight bleed in one corner of the monitor I received. 30 minutes of your time, google, and a little tape fixes it perfectly.
- The stand definitely leaves something to be desired, but you can easily find a VESA compatible stand around the web for under $20. The default stand is tilt only, and seems a bit on the flimsy side
- Useless buttons on the chassis. Only the power button is actually connected to the monitor's PCB, so any calibration will have to be done software-side.
Other Thoughts: Easily worth the money paid for it. I'm planning on grabbing a couple more when they go on sale.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
Great affordable replacement for failing onboard NIC
Plug & Play in Windows 7 x64
Arrived on time, in 3 days.
Includes a low-profile bracket.
Other Thoughts: Purchased this as a replacement for an onboard NIC that had failed in a HTPC. It was up and running within ten minutes. Easy installation, Windows immediately found and installed drivers and I was back in business.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Item was DOA. Tested it using 3 different monitors, 4 different motherboards (all PCIE 2.0 compatible), and tested every output on the card (HDMI, DVI, analog) and nothing would output to any of my displays.
Other Thoughts: Paying $10 shipping to RMA a $30 DOA video card is fairly annoying. Hopefully the replacement will work, but the shipping pretty much offsets any savings from purchasing this on sale.READ FULL REVIEW
