Pros: 1440p/144Hz/IPC/G-Sync. It's a what's-what list of specs. And until the XR341CR (or whatever the 34" version of this is) comes out, this is arguably the best all-around gaming monitor available at that time.
And it's gorgeous. Coming from a 1080p/60Hz box, it's visual butter for my eyes. I simply cannot overstate how beautiful this thing is.
And, to boot, it comes with every style of adjustment you could want (which maybe isn't a big deal, but was another nice change from my old screen).
Cons: ... the quality control. It's echoed in nearly every review, and dead pixels are a worry when buying any monitor, but when you're paying ~$800, it's that much bigger of a deal.
First monitor came with a couple dead pixels, plus dust under the screen AND a broken button. Ugh. So it's been RMA'd, and is now out of stock, and thus is the XB270HU lottery.
So, while it's awesome, be prepared for a bit of work (unless you get lucky and nail it the first time).
Other Thoughts: Random internet polls have suggested nearly a 1/3 failure rate in terms of having to RMA this beast, and that's probably true. If any other brand offered the same spec sheet, I'd probably have skipped this guy. But, if you get a pixel perfect screen, it's an absolute treat.
It's crazy expensive, but it's also virtually unmatched. So buy, but be prepared.
Pros: Decent size, very bright. Works well for what it is.
Cons: Significant ghosting, which wasn't an issue at first, but has seemed to have gotten worse. Bought two of these a few months apart, and they have different UIs, and I simply cannot get the colors to match up between them. Also, virtually not adjust-ability.
Other Thoughts: Not bad if you just need big, 1080p screens. But if you want any extras whatsoever, look elsewhere. Also, the builds are surprisingly inconsistent.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Super fast. Reliable. Great value compared to other SSDs.
Other Thoughts: Own both an 830 and an 840 Pro. Samsung is my go-to for SSDs.READ FULL REVIEW
