Pros: I have had this monitor since 2006 (I believe it's the right model), so almost 8 years now.
There is still absolutely no problem with it. No dead pixels, the logo lights didn't go out. It runs just like the day I got it.
Has a nice crisp display through DVI
Cons: If you unplug the monitor while it's hooked up to a computer, then plug it back in, it will not receive a video signal again until the computer is restarted
Other Thoughts: I have never used the built in speakers, so I can't describe the quality of them, probably not the best.
I have had this thing so long, that I'm not even switching it out for a TV because the thing broke, I just needed to upgrade to 1080p.
I would by Sceptre forever if all their products are this durable against time.
Pros: -See other thoughts
Cons: -See other thoughts
Other Thoughts: I wrote the last review titled "Great". I forgot to mention a couple things.
-Comes with all the screws you could ever need
-There is a 140mm fan in the front, a 140mm on the top, and a 120mm in the rear. They aren't all 120mm
Pros: -Pretty Spacious Case
-Room behind the board to stuff some cords into
-Built pretty solid. I don't think it's very flimsy at all. Has a nice finish on the outside. Feels kind of gritty and grippy.
-All 3 120mm case fans on highest speeds are wispy quiet. Quieter than the one 80mm Stock Cooler on my old CPU (FX-6200)
-Seems to be able to fit some of the biggest CPU Coolers. I installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo just fine in this case
-Comes with a cheap but effective fan controller that you fit into a PCI slot onto the back of the case, and some adapters. Allows you to plug up to three 3-pin fans into it (Obviously, good choice for all the case fans). There is a downside to this however (See Cons)
-Removable Hard Drive rack, and plenty of room for multiple hard drives and SSD's
-Air Filter for bottom mounted PSU, and air filters on the front of the case as well
-Room for Plenty of Case fans, does a fine job cooling all the components with the 3 stock fans it comes with
Cons: -After putting the included Fan Controller in a back PCI slot, I found it difficult to Plug the Top and Rear fan into into Without having the cords lay on top of the CPU heatsink and all over the place in general. I Plugged the front case fan into a 3-pin on my motherboard because it was much closer.
Other Thoughts: This is the first homebuilt orientated case I've ever seen from this decade.
It does NOT seem to be flimsy. It's material is about as solid as a tanky Compaq Case from 2004.
