Corsair Obsidian Series 250D (CC-9011047-WW) Black Aluminum / Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Plenty of cooling, excellent overall design, can use full size ATX power supply.

Cons: Only has two USB 3.0 ports, no motherboard alignment pin like other Corsair cases have. DVD drive bezel was a tight fit in the cutout.

Other Thoughts: If you don't have the latest motherboard with a USB 3.0 header, you will be stuck with only the ports on the IO panel of the motherboard which, in my case required an external USB hub to meet my requirements.

ASUS PB287Q Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonable cost, ultra-high resolution, 60hz capable, LED backlight, free shipping that only took three days to travel from CA to SC, no external power brick.

Cons: Unwieldy adjustment controls, default 30Hz operation, poor documentation.

Other Thoughts: Was using a Dell U2711 (2550x1440). With the default settings, the Dell looked much better. After finally figuring out the rather difficult-to-use on-screen adjustments and tweeking the NVidia control panel settings, I finally got the monitor operating at 60Hz and looking much better. Once settings dialed in properly, Everquest looked like a different game---for the better.

XFX Double D R9-270X-CDFC Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonable price, lifetime warranty, can be quiet when used with certain motherboards, game bundle.

Cons: Only one of the DVI ports (the black one) will support monitors over 1920x1080.

Other Thoughts: Using this card with a Dell U2711 (2550x1440) and a Dell U2312HM (1920x1080). There are two DVI ports on the card. One is black and the other is red. The red DVI port will not support monitors over 1920x1080 but the black one will. I also tried the HDMI port but it would not provide the proper resolution to the U2711.
