Pros: 30", 2560x1600, extremely low response time for size and resolution, beautiful colors once it gets calibrated. Turns on and off quickly. It has no annoying menus to shuffle through to fix things; there are a series of easy little touch-buttons along the bottom that do everything I need.
Once you get something of this quality, you cannot go back to anything lesser. This monitor made me an LG fanboy overnight.
I bought mine in early 2009 and it's still running strong.
Cons: Slight ghosting, especially if blur settings are enabled in a game. Otherwise, nada.
If you don't like V-sync, this isn't for you.
You need a whole, entire metric ton of graphical processing power to run games on this thing.
Folks, 2560x1600 = 4,096,000 pixels.
Standard 1080p = 3,072,000.
That's a wee bit different.
Other Thoughts: I can't stand making anything that isn't a game or movie fullscreen on this thing. It seems like such a waste of space, with the fact that I can easily fit four or five useful webpages onscreen at once.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Digital Speaker System
Pros: I got a set of these from Newegg around, say, almost six years ago. I do NOT play nice with them, and I have yet to manage to blow any of them out. If you can find these anywhere for purchase you're likely to be ripped off price-wise, as they've become something of a collector-curio item. They're worth it over any other Logitech speakers to date, among many other "good" brand of speakers..
Cons: The LED display's backlight on the control center went out a few years ago. I don't really mind. I've gotten used to it, and haven't bothered to replace it due to the problem being a common one. It would happen again, I'm sure. Still worth every penny.
Other Thoughts: If I were to 'upgrade' from this set, I would settle for no less than a 5.1 Klipsch set-up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Shiny, nice and big. The stock sink looks better than most. Very powerful card. Doesn't eat nearly as much energy as some folk make it sound like it does, at least while it is in standby mode. (If you're not running something graphically intensive.)
Cons: I might be an exception, but both of mine like heating up into the 90's the instant any kind of graphical work needs to be done. The higher they go over 90C, the worse their performance gets. The instant they come out of the low-power standby mode, they rocket to 90 C, and then creep up from there, with the fans roaring like jet turbines. I try SLI, no SLI, different SLI bridges, each card in each slot separately. . . Pointing a box fan into the case from about a foot away with the side off helps a bit. . . I can only test so many things in my computer, and only update so much firmware and drivers.
Other Thoughts: I've been labelled the "Human Hardware Filter" by the friends I've got that also like building computers as a hobby, so I really may be unique in always getting the bad hardware out of the masses.
I don't hate EVGA or anything, but I can't even remember how many cards I've RMA'd with them anymore. Hurray for lifetime warranties.
