Pros: It works, it has lots of USB ports and has USB 3.0.
Cons: If you are going to boot from a Bootable USB do NOT get this board. It is pretty much impossible to get the board to recognize the USB as bootable unless you plug in the drive at just the right moment, which I have yet to find. On top of this, the BIOS is extremely ugly.
I understand it is a cheaper board, but I still expect it to have all the features of any other board.
Other Thoughts: The board works fine otherwise, but one more time:
IF YOU PLAN ON BOOTING FROM USB DO NOT GET THIS BOARD!
Pros: -Anti-glare screen works great
-Colors are really good!
-Power LED isn't obnoxious
-Pixel Density is pretty good
-Unless your stomping around you computer. stand is pretty sturdy.
-Price was completely fair.
Cons: YES, the settings its shipped with are horrid, It literally hurt my eyes as I adjusted it. However, I would like everyone to realize, SETTINGS CAN BE CHANGED!
-Bezel is annoying. Not only is it pretty big, but it is glossy and reflects ts the screen a little
-Settings Menu is a little hard to navigate
-no HDMI or Display port. Not that big of a deal, but annoying
Other Thoughts: All in all a great monitor. Price point was exactly where it should be for the monitor.
I use it for gaming, it handles everything very nicely. Bioshock Infinite looked stunning on it.
I have never experienced any Ghosting or other turn offs.
I only knocked off an egg for how poorly the settings were at shipping and the bezel (which doesn't really bother me unless I am paying attention to it)
HERE ARE THE SETTINGS I USE FOR THE MONITOR:
I found it helped me to use someone else's settings (which can be found somewhere in the reviews) as a template, and adjust it to my liking.
The Final Verdict:
Great monitor for price range, I am extremely happy with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great monitor on a slight budget. I found it great for gaming and daily use, I hope you will too.
Pros: The case material is awesome, has USB headers, even if they aren't USB 3.0. It fit my fairly large Geforce GTX 680. Comes with a fan.
Cons: Cable management is okay, but the hard drive slots get in the way of the PSU cables. Also the fan it comes with is a little loud, I'm not complaining, I really don't mind louder computers, but it can get kind of annoying.
Also, not sure if it is just my case or the case's style, but the front white plate is cut angularly, and it looks a little lopsided on the front of the case.
Other Thoughts: All and all pretty good case for the money, but I will definitely be upgrading from it as soon as I can.READ FULL REVIEW
