Pros: 4k at 60hz for very little money. That's about it and really, what else could you ask for at this price?
Cons: The colors aren't great, there's a fair amount of backlight bleed...stuff you'd expect from a TN panel but that's also what gets the high-resolution monitor the 60hz refresh rate at a low cost
The only other thing I dislike is the weird little IR receiver for the remote that hangs down on the left side. It's just this little bulge of clear plastic.
Other Thoughts: One of the reviews stated they couldn't switch the menus to English but the first one I purchased I was able to switch easily and the 2nd came in English by default.
These aren't extremely high quality monitors, but mounted on stands at the appropriate viewing angle the colors are more than acceptable and the added clarity is awesome in games. I purchased the first one on an impulse really as it was a 60hz 4k monitor for less than $300 at the time.
Pros: Very easy to mount, low pump noise, excellent cooling performance and a reasonable price. Both the pump block and radiator have a nice looking trim piece that takes what used to be fairly ugly but functional components and makes them look sleek and modern.
Cons: Depending on your case and setup, you may find the fans a bit noisy. In my open-air test bench they were certainly audible but I wouldn't say they were irritatingly so. When I moved it to a case, I found the fans hardly noticable.
Other Thoughts: I have really grown to like the Raijintek coolers for their flexibility and customization options along with excellent cooling capacity. However, I found that the H110i actually performed better (undoubtedly the 280mm radiator helped over the 240). These Corsair systems also don't suffer from the evaporating coolant issues I've had with the Triton or the cracking block.
The Corsair Link software adds a nice touch. It will adjust fan speeds, monitor temps and change the settings for the LEDs on the pump. If you're going for an illuminated machine, this is a nice custom touch. There's even settings to have it change color depending on CPU temp if you so desire.
While I've transitioned away from AIO liquid cooling in most of my builds, a sealed unit does have the benefit of low maintenance. After testing this H110i, it's definitely my top choice from here on.
This review is from: SteelSeries 69026 Stratus XL Wireless Gaming Controller for iOS
Pros: good range, really comfortable, very familiar layout similar to console controllers, really simple setup
Cons: The only real con is that this is iOS only. I tried pairing it to my computer and mapping the controls but was unsuccessful. I can't hold this against it, though, since it's advertised as an iOS only controller.
Other Thoughts: I've actually enjoyed this controller. it works great with an iPad to really get into some games. With this, an iPad can really be used like a mobile console for more competitive gaming. Racing games and FPS games benefit the most from the extra control.READ FULL REVIEW
