Pros: Good color. Minimal adjustment needed during initial set-up. Mountable. Bargain price.
Other Thoughts: I recently completed assembling a mid-range DIY desktop gaming PC with a GT 730 graphics card. I surmised that 1600x900 would probably be the best resolution to run so as not to place too much of a demand on the graphics hardware. Modest as it is, the GPU does have an HDMI output and this panel was the only 1600x900 I could find with an HDMI connector.
This monitor was easy to assemble and has the delightfully pleasant and unexpected feature of side-mounted input connectors. Most other monitors I have used have the connections mounted on the bottom facing downward, compelling the user to invert the monitor and/or stand assembly in order see the connectors.
I managed to purchase it on sale for $79.99. I coughed up $0.99 for Super Egg Saver shipping in 4-7 business days. It was delivered overnight. Super deal and service.
I recommend one for modest gaming utilizing the HDMI input. Grab one if you can - as of this writing Newegg is out of stock.
This review is from: Nippon Labs STK-7529SD30 30pc Precision Ratchet Screwdriver Set
Pros: Compact and useful; reasonably high quality. Broad range of driver fittings. The case features a belt clip.
Other Thoughts: Newegg emailed me a promotional code for $10 off a single item. I was topped off with tech gear and my usual selections of PC components. I had to search for a while to find something useful and inexpensive and this kit looked intriguing. It turned out to be a good choice. It was already marked down $1 and my grand total with the additional $10 off was $4.98. Super deal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LOGISYS Computer CS369BK ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 480W Power Pupply
Pros: Price. Aesthetics. Extruded side panels for cable routing. Roomy. Recessed 120mm fan mounts on top. Dual fans on PSU.
Cons: Side panels somewhat flimsy.
Other Thoughts: I was seeking a relatively inexpensive chassis and PSU bundle at a local electronics retailer and this product looked intriguing. I had slight reservations about the power supply but for the price I took the plunge.
The PSU has enough connectors and adequate power to support all of my internal components. The 4-pin CPU connector *barely* reached the socket on the motherboard but ran across the face of the CPU heatsink fan. That didn't interfere with fan operation but an aftermarket 12-inch extension cable provided more than enough slack to reroute the connector. The PSU powers an AMD triple core CPU and XFX R7 360 just fine - despite XFX's recommendation of a minimum 600W PSU.
It has a roomy interior and SSD mounting and installation was nearly effortless. Screw in to the bracket and slide and snap to install. I like the recessed fan mounts at the top - I installed some aftermarket fans with plenty of clearance for the motherboard.
The side panels on the unit I purchased were rather badly warped and require a little massaging to remove and replace. For the price and the abundance of redeeming qualities I'll simply dock one egg.
My reservations regarding the PSU were happily unfounded. Overall I'd recommend it to house a mid-range component array.
