This review is from: Vizio E601i-A3 Razor 60" 1080p 120Hz LED Smart HD TV w/ Built-in Wi-Fi
Pros: Very nice picture. Great color and darks. Was a slight graininess to the picture while using it with my PC until I adjusted the noise correction in the settings but after that it looks amazing even as a monitor. My old monitor used 168 watts of electricity while on and with similiar settings turned on this one uses 23 watts. (I'm not a big high contrast or dynamic contrast guy, so I usally get them to run alot less power-wise). As a matter o' fact I liked this TV so much after using it for 3 days I bought another one :)
Cons: Stand does not swivel even a little, kinda liked that feature on my Samsung.
Other Thoughts: I find it hilarious that my 2005 Samsung 1080p 42" is heavier than this 60" 1080p, but hey thats technology for ya!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
Pros: Nice case, lightweight and sleek front but....
Cons: This case is a disaster to say the least the PSU is bare min. and heres the kicker of why I threw this case out the door. With a ZOTAC 9300 ITX motherboard the is only 55mm of clearance to the PSU, even the thinnest fan being the ***** stock fan from intel come sin at 53mm so you are stuck with the fan being right under the PSU fan which creates terrible cooling.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY BEWARE! case is only 5.1" tall OD inside you are working with about half an inch less after case and rise for motherboard, except in the back where the motherboard is and you have a 2.5" tall PSU ttaking up the rest of the space. If you buy keep a fire extinguisher nearby.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZOTAC GF9300-D-E LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300 HDMI Wi-Fi Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Good Board, with lots of BIOS options, I really like the ITX setup, and am happy wiht the purchase. ZOTAC is also a great company.
Cons: Capacitors and other motherboard parts make it impossible to safely put in a stock intel heatsink and fan. be aware that you will need a heatsink and fan with a sharp rise to it to fit to this motherboard! Also the USB, Audio, and COMs are clear in the back of the case so you may need extension cables.
Other Thoughts: If you buy Supercase MI-008 there will only be about 55mm of clearance from the CPU to the top of the power supply so if you go with a processor, and even then you will have your cpu fan and PSU fan right on top of eachother which will create terrible cooling.READ FULL REVIEW
