Pros: Advertised to have great response time (3ms) and an attractive monitor in general. Not using the speakers, but have never relied upon speakers integrated into a monitor for anything. LED has a lower draw on my UPS so maybe I'll save a buck or two over the course of a year.
Cons: Where are the Windows 8/8.1 drivers for this model? They're not on the packaged CD, and they're not on the ViewSonic web site.
I contacted the ViewSonic support department and the advice I received from "Don" was to revert from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8...as he informed me, Microsoft is recalling and reviewing Windows 8.1 so it's in my best interest to revert to Windows 8, anyway. 0_o
Of course, that advice would leave me in the same shape I'm in now because there doesn't appear to be any drivers published by ViewSonic for Windows 8, either.
I've sent two more responses to ViewSonic trying to get some sort of an answer, but all I hear now are the crickets chirping.
Might be the last time I buy a ViewSonic product, and might be hitting up Newegg for an RMA in favor of a more responsive manufacturer.
This review is from: SIIG CE-MT0R12-S1 Articulating Triple Monitor Desk Mount - 13" to 27"
Pros: Solid construction. Good finish. Excellent support from Newegg.
Cons: I have three 27" monitors - one acer T272HL and two ViewSonic VX2703mh monitors that I want to run side-by-side in Landscape mode. First off, there isn't any chance that it will handle three 27" monitors without *serious* overlap of the monitors. I was able to rotate the center monitor to Portrait, but that's not the way I want to run this setup.
Other Thoughts: Another reviewer stated that Newegg would not accept a return on this item. My experience was different. Customer Service was exceptionally helpful and issued an RMA without any hesitation once I explained the issue to them.
SIIG needs to fix this mount to support their claim of 27" monitors, or stop marketing it as a such. The physics just doesn't support their claim.
This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Looks really cool. Lots of nice advertised features. The construction on this board is nice, as is all the dust covers and fans to keep everything cool. I was looking to build a high-end system and this was the foundation for everything. I've owned ASUS boards in the past with very good results.
Cons: This one isn't one of ASUS' rock stars so far. Load it up with 32Gb of RAM - won't boot. Cripple it back to 16Gb, and it will boot...but gives a CPU fan error and wants me to run setup. If I let it sit for ~2 minutes, it starts rebooting itself over and over and over and over until the power cord is pulled and the "standby" power runs out.
With the memory issue, I have no idea what the issue is. The RAM is Corsair XMS3 1333Mhz which is on the ASUS list of "approved" RAM chips, so why the memory error when they advertise a 32Gb capacity?
I also tried a second CPU fan, just in case, in all the CPU fan "ports" on the board. Every one resulted in the same CPU fan error, and then the never-ending reboot cycle.
I'm hoping that an RMA will improve my experience - sometimes things go bad in manufacturing - and Newegg/ASUS will make this right. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to pay to ship it back and then wait to get the replacement...install everything again, blah, blah, blah...what a pain.
