Pros: Cheap, decent response time, multiple input choices
Cons: If you like your screens to have uniform contrast (where black is black and not just dark grey) then buy something else. Also the LED background lighting became clearly visible through the screen in the first few weeks. Acer was at least willing to replace the monitor for that but shipping was up to me to provide. After calling to complain about the contrast being bad and them walking me through all the possible adjustment settings, I was told that "That is just how the monitor is made now". There would be no replacement for that problem.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to be a companion to the same model monitor I was using previously but the older "version a" was no longer available. Silly me, thinking that the same model but with "version b" would be an acceptable match. I'f you can find this model in "version a" buy it, it's great... just not this new and "improved" "version b".READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: looks good
Sapphire brand name
Cons: will NOT work in my PCIe 3.0 slot (ASRock z75 pro3)
Other Thoughts: It actually killed my last motherboard's PCIe 3.0 slot. Luckily it was under warranty and I got a replacement, but the new board still won't see this card in the main GPU slot. If only Sapphire would help me, but the best answer I got from them was that they'd never heard of such a problem.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Couldn't ask for more airflow (and still have a sturdy case)
Big front fan, good sized rear one. Both are plenty quiet.
Easy hotswap drive bays.
Plenty of room for cable management behind MoBo.
Room for more fans than I'll probably ever use.
Cons: Awfully tight "thumbscrews" (but they do have slots for phillips or flathead screwdrivers so no eggs taken off here.)
Other Thoughts: With the already low price AND the rebate I was afraid SOMETHING would be horrid, but everything worked out beautifully. (as long as you didn't *need* easy thumbscrews for access.)
The looks are purely subjective, but personally I like the old StarWars vibe it's got.(At least in the white version I got)
