HP De-branded TSS-23MT Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works great with Windows 8.1, no issues at all so far. For my use case (monitor sits tilted as far horizontal as it will go at just below desk height to the right of my chair) it turned out to be perfect. Unlike a similar design on a 27" screen that I have, the adjustable stand on this monitor works great.

Cons: None.

Acer T272HLbmjjz 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overall a good monitor, touch screen works well in Windows 7 and 8.x.

Cons: While I like the monitor and have been living with it for almost a year now, I decided to take an egg off for two reasons.
1. The display is not quite as crisp as I'd like it to be. I"m assuming that's from the touchscreen that's been overlaid. It's certainly still quite usable, but if you're looking for a super sharp, crisp display, this isn't it.
2. The display stand. The monitor sits on a smaller desk, and I've almost knocked it off twice now, as it needs to sit right up against the back edge of the desk. I also am not a big fan of the clear bottom edge. Seems like they could have left a couple of half round indents along the botton edge to help route cables past (through) the monitor.

Other Thoughts: Again, overall I think it's a nice screen. Pretty good value at the time I bought it.

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Performance is about what you would expect - i.e., more processing power than the average user will really ever be able to use.

Cons: No VT-d, dual channel memory architecture, no VT-Pro, poor heat spreader, only 16 PCIe lanes.

Other Thoughts: I decided to bite the bullet on the upgrade, as my old mobo had run out of PCIe slots, preventing me from upgrading to a 10g NIC. After doing the research and hemming and hawing about a socket 2011 based system vs. Haswell, I chose to go with Haswell. Taken on its own, this processor will seem to impress. I currently run the Haswell at stock frequencies and when compared against my (admittedly OC'd to 3.9GHz) 4+ year old i7-920 it fails to impress. In testing some of the CAD stuff that I tinker with, the new processor netted gains in the neighborhood of 25%. This is what lack of real competition gets us - mediocre processor upgrades. I will probably end up de-lidding the processor once I start overclocking in earnest. In the end the upgrade has been worth it, but that has everything to do with the new mobo and supporting cast rather than the processor. Even as it stands right now, I've already maxed out my PCIe lanes right out of the gate - but the only other option would have been either a socket 2011 system (which would have other drawbacks) or wait for Haswell-e in a year.
