Acer S271HLbid Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Huge. Bright colors. Price. No dead pixels. Stand is decent.

Cons: A TON of backlight bleed all the way around the edges.
MASSIVE energy star logo on power up. VERY irritating.
Box came opened just as another user described. WTH?
Cant help but think this is a refurbished item.
Dont care for the adjustment buttons location (bottom underneath right).

Other Thoughts: This is about as big as you want to go for a desktop monitor. You WILL swivel you head to look left and right at it.
Mounted on the wall behind my desk. Freed up some desk space.
XBMC is wonderful to use with this thing.

2 out of 5 eggs Update: BIOS issues 3 Weeks in. 03/26/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Listed in previous review

Cons: 3 Weeks in BIOS has issues. Continuous boot loop saying updating backup BIOS. This continues indefinitely. As indicated in previous review the BIOS is VERY VERY picky about USB booting. I have a BUNCH of USB bootable flash drives that function FLAWLESSLY in ANY other computer. Practically worthless for USB booting.

Other Thoughts: Whats the point of having a backup BIOS if the computer is rendered useless because of a problem with the backup BIOS?

Oh BTW, because of the flaky USB issue good luck getting the BIOS to even see your drive in order to flash a new updated BIOS.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast and plenty of PCI E Slots.
8 SATA ports (Switch to AHCI for GSATA)
Lots of USB ports

Cons: Even with the new F7h BIOS it still has USB booting problems. I have a large selection of bootable USB sticks. NONE of them boot with this board. I have a 2.5 SSD IDE drive that WILL boot with a USB adapter but thats the only one that will. This REALLY chaps my sass.
Needs a few more fan headers for power.

Other Thoughts: Its lucky that the one drive that boots from usb is the one that I REALLY need to boot (OS).
