ASUS PB258Q Black 25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1440p - People that say you will see no difference between a 1440p monitor and a 1080 monitor are lying to you. Games are noticeably more detailed, text and videos are more clear.

IPS - the colors are much better than my other monitors the side to side viewing angles are pretty good but the top to bottom isn't that great.

Stand - allows tilt, pivot and sway (from the base) the base is a little big though. Allows the stand is more solid and the screen doesn't wiggle as much (if at all) when the desk is bumped. The base of the stand is pretty big though.(22cm x 28cm)

Ports and cables - Asus supplied a cable for every port on the back of the monitor which is nice but we all know display port is the right port to use.

Dead Pixels - I see none

Cons: None of these are really cons just little things I think they could do to improve the monitor.

Price - maybe, but I didn't want to take any chances with one of the lower cost Korean monitors. Id rather buy from newegg so I wouldn't have to wait weeks for a return if I had any problems with the monitor. Trust me I've been there before with other purchases sold by foreign countries. And no I'm not a rac-ist

Measuring indents on bottom of monitor - I'm not sure how I feel about this I cant see myself using this monitor as a measuring device.

HDMI and Dispayport symbols - I'm not sure why monitor manufactures feel the need to plaster stupid logos like this on their monitors it really does degrade the appearance of the monitor, if I want to know what ports are available on the monitor I will turn it around and look at the back myself.

buttons - sure wish these where on the back. They aren't even labeled so whats the point of putting them on the front.

Other Thoughts: Power Light - white when monitor is on, orange in stand by, this can also be turned off in the menu.

Windows 10 has the monitor scaled at 125%, Which I think is the best setting and I have poor eyesight.

Monitor takes approximately 7 seconds to turn on (when completely turned off)

Bezels - they are really thin around 2mm. The screen actaully starts a little less than 1 cm from the edge of the monitor on the top and sides.

Lightpack - I was a little worried about my lightpack leds sticking to the monitor due to the square like indents on the back of the monitor but they have been stuck to the monitor for over a month and no problems with peeling.

60Hz - refresh rate, if you are moving from a 144Hz monitor to this that might bother you I've never owned anything over 60Hz so I cant give any opinions on this.

Brightness - too dang bright for my eyes on default setting had to turn blue light filter up to level 3.

Google Chrome - some websites need to be enlarged (for me) remember these shortcut keys CTRL and + or - or 0. Then you are set.

SeaSonic SSR-650RM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very Quiet - played Crysis 3 and BF4 on max settings and it still was near silent (Have Ivy i5 and GeForce GTX 670), much quieter than my corsair tx750 v2 (which I guess isn't a real big accomplishment)
All black cables and semi modular to keep your case clean looking, all the attached cables will be used in most builds - 4+4 cpu, 20+4 mainboard, and 2 6+2 PCIE

Cons: I didn't notice before I purchased this but the PCIE power connectors are 2 6+2 per PCIE cable so if your not using the 2nd PCIE connector that is attached to that same cable then its sticking up and looking messy.

Other Thoughts: I was planning on getting a new GPU this summer and was worried about frying the cables since the higher end GPUs really should be using 2 separate power cables.. so what about those extra ends? Well I guess they would just dangle, so I RMA'd this. From what I was reading each PCIE power cable is only supposed to deliver or handle under 300 watts. Wish I would have paid better attention to the cables, oh well

ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of features - vpn, can setup cloud disk and access videos, pictures, files from anywhere using the aicloud app on android phones, and probably apples. Can send friends links to pictures, files on cloud disk
Dual band, can create 2 separate lists of MAC addresses so you can filter on each band (2 and 5 Ghz)
Gigabit Ethernet ports- I noticed a slight speed increase in gaming
I think its good looking

Cons: 2Ghz band is a bit slow until you enable the Reducing the USB 3.0 inference option under the professional tab in wireless. You will definitely want to enable this if you have a wireless repeater

Other Thoughts: Lights are a little too bright but I just face it towards the wall so I can sleep at night
