ASUS VN247H-P Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This monitor improved my gaming on Black Ops 2. I have fewer situations where I don't get the drop on an opponent. The picture is great. It has great resolution and there are no defects.

Cons: Not really a con, but..... If I stare at it real hard and bump my desk, I can see it wobble just a little bit. Whatever. Other posters are saying this thing is not very stable because of the smaller stand. Let's just say it is LESS stable.

A more meaningful con is that the sound is definitely not high quality. But I don't really use it. I use headphones. I wanted the integrated speakers in case I really needed to have another person listen to what was going on. I usually just keep the speakers disabled.

Other Thoughts: This was a first. The cable that comes with it is DVI on one end and HDMI on the other. I had never seen that before, but it's what gets the sound from the video card to the monitor. No 3.5mm male-male cable needed.

Pros: This DVD burner installed like a pro. It runs like a pro. It's reliable, not too noisy, and just works. I've been pretty spoiled with ASUS burners. This is my second one making it about 4 years since I've even purchased a different brand, so I can't imagine what kind of complaints there might be from other buyers on other burners.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This was a basic OEM burner purchase for me. The face color was black and I suppose if you want to be able to change the face color, this one may not be for you. But it runs fantastic.

Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Profile Intel Desktop Memory Model BLS2K4G3D1609ES2LX0

Pros: This memory installed just fine and works like a charm. Games (like Black Ops 2) load so much faster. I'm always about the first one in the game and rarely have "awaiting gamestate." That said, I bought 16GB worth of this memory and all of it seems to be working fine. Also, these sticks are truly low-profile. They do not stick up at all above the installation slots.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I received the first 8 GB free with my Asus Extreme4 MOBO and bought another 8 GB to go with it. After that, I read the reviews and was extremely worried. I checked the boxes and made sure I received the same exact RAM amongst all of the sticks and I did.
