Pros: Image: Bright and very clear. The IPS panel, as expected has a clear view at extreme angles, which happens on this monitor due to it's width. Brightness needs to be turned down, but it is better than the cold images of most TN monitors.
Color rendering - 99% color space sRGB, and it shows in the accurate colors displayed. No matter what images thrown at the screen, the colors were accurate, with no over saturation.
No Backlight bleed - I didn't expect this, since all my other LCD monitors have edge bleed.
USB 3.0 Quick Charge - Charging times are lightning fast. All monitors should have this feature for charging devices.
60Hz Refresh Rate - Excellent game play, with no shuddering or lag.
Thunderbolt 2.0 - It allow you to connect compatible devices to move data between them with incredible speed. In transferring video files, the system was able to transfer at 16Gbs, much better than USB 3.0.
Cables Included - HDMI-to-HDMI and DisplayPort-to-DisplayPort cables are INCLUDED!! That never happens any more.
The Stand - Adjustable from 2.5" to 7", and can tilt.
Screen - The 3440x1440 resolution looks and feels appropriate for the eyes, also allowing the wide view to feel natural and not stretched. You can easily view multiple windows. Screen Split 2.0 from LG
Gaming - Playing Madden 15 Football on this monitor was the best experience I have had on 20 years of Madden, as the wide size really helps with the view of the game.
Cons: Stand Base - Monitor tends to wobble if there is any movement on or around the desk. Needs to be more substantive.
GPU Mating - My older GPU had issues with drivers. Had to use a newer Nv 960 GPU. More of a GPU issue, not the monitor.
Other Thoughts: Could have had better documentation as it was not as plug-and-play as my other monitors. Minor issue. Worked perfectly with Window 7 based system, with an iCore7 processor.
This is just an amazing monitor for playing games, with no refresh issues and great color.
This review is from: Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-592G-77LB Gaming Laptop 6th Generation Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4 GB GDDR5 15.6" Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
Pros: Price-to-performance ratio: No one else even comes close. 16Gigs of RAM, iCore 7, two hard drives and the 960 GPU. Anyone else, that setup would cost you $1500+ to $2000.
Thermal Management: Due to excellent thermal management, the cooling fans didn't even come on while viewing websites like SI.com and breitbart.com, which have two of pop-ups running. Cooling only kicked in while playing high-res games.
Design: The Black Edition is just cool looking and feeling.
Build Quality: Very good quality. It is not the high-end of competitors, but is 10% better quality and use of metal worth and extra $500-$1000? No!
Wireless Performance: Picked up signals that my other laptop couldn't. Speeds did tend to vary and the farthest distance, but I would expect that. Peaked performance was 144, which is as fast as my router allowed.
SSD-HHD setup: Very fast SSD. Great HHD setup, as you can save files to the second drive.
IPS Screen: Great screen that is very clear HD. It is not 4K, but looks great and unlike 4K, it doesn't drain the battery at a record pace.
Cons: Touchpad: It is not the best I have used, but it is not all that bad. I have used other laptops that cost more, that had far worse touchpads.
No other cons!!!
Other Thoughts: Acer built the best extreme gaming laptop, now just go and get it!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Budget: For what you get for features and performance, it is a great tablet. You will be hard pressed to find a better tablet for the price.
Internet Surfing: The two web pages that cause page loading issues on my two upper-end tablets, costing $500-$1000, caused no issues with this tablet! Processor and RAM worked perfectly together. SI.com and Brietbart.com always cause my other tablets to have to reload due to so many ads running on the pages. Not with this tablet!
Streaming to the TV: The micro-HDMI to HDMI worked flawlessly for watching online content. My other three tablets don't even have a micro-HDMI and they cost 5 times as much.
HDMI Cable: One came with the unit!!!!
Videos online: Seamless and fast, no buffering.
Apps: Come preloaded with normal Google apps.
Cons: Update: Product wifi stopped working after a month. Product screen stopped working after two months!! Stay away from this device.
Screen: The resolution is not very good and will cause eye strain.
Viewing Angles: They are poor to horrible. Do not move more than 2 degrees off center, the screen will wash out.
Colors: No accurate, all under saturated.
Camera: It is what it is, a 2 MP camera and it works as expected as is very slow. Online chat is not what I would use this for, it didn't perform well.
Battery Life: Unit came fully charged, but still charged it for 18 hours. Battery life was actually 4-5 hours, not the 8 that the unit promises.
Impact protection: There is obviously no impact protection using foam. Dropped from three feet and the display and unit came apart. Plastic parts that are clicked together. Gasketing is no where to be found inside. DON'T DROP THE UNIT. Functioned fine after reassembly. $2 in impact foam could have solved the impact and gasket issues.
Weight: Can get heavy in hand after about an hour of use.
Other Thoughts: Remember, you are buying a budget tablet for surfing with a decent screen. You are not paying for a retinal display here, you would pay a lot more.
This is a great tablet for a kid or a senior, who is on a budget. You will not be upset if it is dropped or lost.
