This review is from: AOC e2351F Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 20,000,000:1
Pros: Very bright, sharp picture with awesome contrast. The viewing angle is great and the touch controls on the front are easy to use.
It's easy to switch between inputs which is nice because I have my desktop hooked up over DVI and my laptop hooked up over D-SUB.
The size is perfect for gaming or web browsing, as anything really over 24" gets to be too big in my opinion.
The monitor itself is very slim and light and has a solid build quality.
Cons: absolutely none so farREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
Pros: I decided to keep windows 7 Home Premium on my HDD while upgrading to 8 on my SSD and so far I'm pretty happy.
Its Pretty Clean
It is compatible with all my previous running programs
It took less than 20 minutes to be completely up and going.
Cons: Metro... It's the only thing I dont really like too much about it, but I think it's just a matter of getting used to it. Many people had difficulty transitioning from fly out menus from XP to 7, so I'm giving it a try.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I have to give it five stars. It works well and it is fairly user friendly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast would sum it up.
Doing some light bench-marking, I OC'd the card to 975MHz and found that it was performing 2.6% better than the NVIDIA GTX 680, a card $200 more than this one. Of course, I didnt need any OC to run any games, but it was fun to see.
As far as gaming goes, everything from Dishonored to Metro 2033 to Sleeping Dogs run beautifully on Max settings. I dont bother grabbing frame rates anymore because the card is generally hitting the FPS cap on those that cap.
Cons: Big, Gigantic, but also pretty sexy... I have a mid tower and this card barely fits in there... its a Thermaltake V3 Black and I have to say that while the cooling is amazing, the space it takes up is equally amazing.
Other Thoughts: As far as performance for money goes, this card is one of the best I have seen on the market.READ FULL REVIEW
