Pros: Screen is clear, no defects, no dead pixels.
Easy to adjust color to get what you want.
Cable comes with the Monitor, don't need to order one.
Curve of the screen is perfect for gaming.
No tear in the screen when gaming at 144, flawless picture.
No complaints on this Monitor, it delivers what the specs say.
Cons: The Power Button is on the Back, but can be reached from the front side.
Other than that, I can't say anything bad about this Monitor.
Overall Review: I would recommend this product to anyone that wants a high speed monitor for gaming.
For anything else, it maybe overkill.
Pros: All the holes lined up, and fit perfect in the ATX case.
Booted up, no problems at all, and has been running fine since then.
It scores well with a 7700K CPU, on Mark 7, so I was happy with that. The added Apps, allow easy control of this board.
No real complaints on this board at all, with the exception of the CD drivers (see Cons for more details).
Cons: After I had installed Windows 7, I started to install the drivers from the CD that came with it.
On the Universal SBC 3.0 driver, when it installed, it locked Windows up solid. I had to uninstall Windows 7, and do a
complete install. After the Install, I loaded in all the drivers, but that one. Then went to the Gigabyte Web site, and downloaded
the newest version, and that installed fine. I am not sure if I just got a faulty disk, or if this driver has an issue with Win 7.
Other than that minor issue, the Board is rock solid.
Overall Review: Yes, I would recommend this board to anyone I know.
Pros: Looks great, but does have several issue you find out about too late.
It rolls smooth, and fits a medium hand very well.
Buttons seem to be solid, and the mouse has a nice feel overall.
Adjusting weights is easy, and really helps with the over feel of the mouse.
Cons: A major issue is that it has no drivers, and Windows 10 loads driver ELECOM version 22.214.171.124. This is an issue, as this
driver will not allow you to use the side buttons. You would have to use a third party program, if it could even see
the side buttons. Plus, the side buttons don't work by default as forward and backward, big disappointment.
The wheel doesn't have a smooth movement, but almost moves in notches, so things jump.
Also, the DPI button doesn't seem to make as much as a change as I expected. It has three settings, and only
one setting makes a massive change. The other two are very close to the same, but this could have something to
do with MSI not having a driver for this mouse.
Overall Review: Overall, I would recommend that you not purchase this mouse, unless you are looking for a cheap mouse, that only uses
two buttons and wheel. If MSI had generated a driver, this could have been a great deal for the price.
Pros: I had read the reviews on this board, after I had put it on order, and then wondered if I made a mistake.
I have owned a lot of Gigabyte boards, and have been happy with each and every one. As soon as I got the board,
I checked the solder joints on the Memory holders, no problem. Then I checked the hole alignment, no a problem
it lined up perfectly. After all was installed, I gave it a test on Doom 4, not a problem, the board performed as well
as I hoped. Great board for the price, with the exception of the design of the Memory holders.
Cons: The bracket holders for the Memory, seem to have a slight design flaw. If you put your memory into the holder and then
try to close the clamp, the memory is not held as secure as it should be. I had to put in the memory, push in the side clap, and
then push in the memory again, to get it to lock in correctly. Once the memory is in, it seems to be good, and works fine.
I have four other Gigabyte boards and none of them had this flaw.
Overall Review: I would recommend this board to others, as the Price - performance is well worth it.
Pros: Very east to install, everything you need and more, works perfectly.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Overall Review: I would highly recommend this product.
