Pros: Over all I have been very pleased with GSKILL memory. No errors and it works well out of the box. Also GSKILL tech support on Newegg is very innovative. It gave me a chance to ask some questions from a pro prior to purchase. GSKILL service is probably the finest in the industry.
Cons: The only con for me is more of a frustration. The package and picture on new egg show compatibility to ASUS Z87 boards. The GSKILL configurator shows compatibility of this kit to the Z87 boards. Yet this is not fully true. It is ONLY compatible after BIOS update.
Other Thoughts: This kit did work after updating the BIOS. For those of us that would prefer not to risk an update, and that it might have been preferable to choose another brand or smaller kit. I feel that GSKILL and other memory companies should be more transparent about this fact. For me compatible means install and done. Not install....fail to post....troubleshoot....troubleshoot....preform risky BIOS update that could brick your board....troubleshoot....finally works. That to me is not compatibility.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great performance for the price. Fans are quiet. Side mounted plugs for the 6 pin cables (this is so much easier then when they put them on the back). No glitches, errors, problems, or crashes. I bought this card mostly so I can play video on my 49" TV in duel screens with my PC, and it does that well.
Cons: The only con I have has nothing to do with product quality but it came with a free game that will not be released for a month. That was a bit disappointing.
Other Thoughts: My computer Specs and benchmark
Intel I-7 4770K with zalman cooling fan
8GB G Skill DDR3
1TB Raptor HD
This is a computer that can really be put together on a budget, but with the new card performance is very good. This PC as described above got a 3D Mark Score of 9587 which they say tested better then 77% of all results.
This review is from: Samsung UN39FH5000 39" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV
Pros: The TV, picture, and sound quality are above average In this price range. Build quality and aesthetics are also quite nice. The ability to play DivX, quicktime, .mkv and many other formatted movies though the USB port remains the top selling point of this TV for me.
Cons: The HDMI, USB, and RCA jacks are sitting flat against the back of the center of the TV. Make sure to see the pics of the back of the TV if you plan to mount it because the mount will likely be in the way with the cables plugged in.
Other Thoughts: It is important to note that based on my past experience with Samsung their after sale customer service is horrific. Most Samsung products I have own do not tend to last very long compared to other brands. As such they will do or say just about anything to prevent a warranty claim. My last experience with their warranty team was to send me across the state to a "repair facility" to repair a $200 printer. Another item came with a faulty accessory and they refused to help outright because I did not have an invoice for the accessory specifically (as they clearly knew I couldn't). This is important to know because this is how you can expect to be treated after they already have your money. Consider yourself warned.
This one is not Samsung's fault but it seems to have a difficult time with my DirecTV remote once properly programmed with the remote code provided by DirecTV.. To turn on the TV you will have to wait and hold down the button a good 2 seconds.
