Pros: Great color. My previous monitor was IPS, but only effectively did 6 bits of color each for RGB. Big difference.
Solid construction. I have it mounted on an Ergotron arm, and the VESA mounting plate is one of the most solid that I have seen.
The monitor casing is solid, no creaking as I move it around.
No dead pixels, no light bleed that I can notice (I'm not an artist, though, so maybe not as sensitive).
I didn't have to adjust anything out of the box.
Includes every cable you could want - tried DisplayPort for the first time, and cable locks in place nicely.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of. My family absolutely loves it. Big improvement over a 1920x1080 monitor.
Other Thoughts: I didn't know that DisplayPort also carries audio, and the monitor has speakers. The monitor's speakers actually aren't half bad, but I still prefer my big external speakers. Windows 7 made the monitor speakers the default without asking me, and it took a good 30 minutes to figure out how to get my old speakers back.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Not too big, it really is 10.5 inches long.
Plays all of my kids' Steam games at 2560x1440 with graphics settings at max, no complaints about frame rates or stuttering.
Clocks way down for mundane use like email and web, sticks at 35C with the onboard fans OFF.
Even with the fans all the way up, it's not very loud, and I have not noticed any whine.
Cons: The card BIOS has a fan profile that does not turn the fans on until the temps hit at least 60C.
The included software can set a new fan profile, but the software must be running - if you close the app, the fan profile reverts to the BIOS profile with the fans off.
The software is designed to look cool, but I would prefer if it was simpler, used fewer resources, and ran reliably.
Give me an easy way to load a new fan profile into the card BIOS, so it becomes the default!
Other Thoughts: I have 2 big case fans blowing right at the card, so I'm ok with the onboard fans remaining off most of the time. The card gets less dusty that way, and the fans won't wear out. Put when gaming, we have to leave the klunky Precision X OC software running, when I would rather devote all of the system's resources to the game.READ FULL REVIEW
High durability for a non-enterprise SSD.
Small - easy to get plenty of airflow around the drive.
Quiet - you don't realize how loud hard drives really are until you get used to an SSD.
Cons: Small laptop-sized mounting screws, even though this drive isn't really for laptops. Mounting holes are positioned for a laptop as well. Had to get the drill out to get these mounted in my server.
Other Thoughts: I put 2 of these in a small workgroup server (an HP ProLiant G7 N54L). I'll let others run the benchmarks - all I know is this server maxes out Gigabit ethernet, and that's without using RAID.
I analyzed our data usage before selecting these drives. The drives have 128TB endurance, so with our typical usage of 20GB/day of writes, they should last 17.5 years.
