Acer B276HK YMJDPPRZ Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Great monitor plagued with QA issues and quirky inputs. 04/03/2015

This review is from: Acer B276HK YMJDPPRZ Black 27" 6ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 300 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers

Pros: 1. Very crisp and vibrant 4K IPS display.
2. Decent menu control options.
3. Multiple input options.
4. Handy PiP feature.
5. Good anti-glare matte screen.
6. No dead pixels upon arrival.

Cons: 1. 4K 60Hz only works with DisplayPort.
2. Non-DP inputs restricted to 4K 30Hz.
3. QA nightmare.
4. Cheaply made bezel.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is actually a very nice 4K 60Hz IPS display that is unfortunately plagued with shoddy QA methods. I've purchased three of these monitors only to discover two of them had serious issues with particles behind the screen panel themselves, resulting in what appears as shadows when viewed on a white background.

The two problematic ones also exhibited slight ghosting while the 3rd one didn't, which leads me to believe it's indeed a bad QA batch.

Another rather annoying issue is the monitor will not run at 60Hz with anything but DisplayPort (1.2, and even then not all will work), using HDMI will restrict it to 30Hz regardless of brand, rated bandwidth, and/or versions. So if you intend to buy three monitors to run off a single system, be prepared to buy a GPU with multiple DP outputs such as an AMD 295x2 or NVIDIA Titan X.

Besides the aforementioned issues and quirks, it's a very good and affordable 4K 60Hz IPS monitor.

ASRock H81 Pro BTC LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1. Very cheap.

2. Full working slots without any modding.

3. Dedicated PCI-E power boost using on-board dual molex power feeds.

Cons: It's ASRock, which is generally cheaper quality than motherboards made by Gigabyte and MSI which are common for this type of tasks, but it does the job nicely.

Other Thoughts: I use this for the advertised purpose, which is GPU mining, and I can safely say this basically just replaced my often used favorites, the MSI GD65 and Gigabyte UD3 motherboard variant due to great pricing and featureset for the intended purpose.

Also worthy to mention is that the H61 version of this board will support socket 1155 CPUs which are ultimately cheaper, making the total GPU/compute rig rig even cheaper.

PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 950W High Performance 80PLUS Silver SLI CrossFire Intel Haswell Ready Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After running them for several months at near full load I can say that this is a very capable power supply, and can can actually output nearly 1,200w with no issues. High quality build and never had an issue with several units.

Cons: None really, maybe the brightly colored orange power plug and not being fully modular.

Other Thoughts: Got half a dozen of these units for specialized power intensive computing tasks and they have not failed yet after months of 24/7 use, would recommend.
