Pros: Bought 3 of these monitors for an AMD Eyefinity setup, and wow do they look amazing. Great color and quality. Have had them for about 3 weeks now, and they are great. Upgraded from a single 37" Vizio TV as a monitor to 3 of these. I have two of them hooked up via DVI and the third through a mini-display port to DVI adapter (active adapter). I have seen other reviewers say that the HDMI port doesnt support audio. I do have an Xbox and DVR hooked into 2 of the monitors through HDMI and they both have audio coming through fine. Speakers are a little on the weak side, but I dont count that as a con since I didnt buy these monitors for the speakers.
Cons: None, they are great.
Overall Review: Playing games in Eyefinity on these monitors is great. Very immersive. Most games play fine at 5760x1080. I will need a second 6970 now to max a few of them though.

Two Drives Dead in Two Years
Pros: They were cheap for the amount of storage at the time. RMA Process was fast
Cons: Ordered 1 of these drives back in June of 2011. It failed after 8 months of use. RMA'd it without any problems, and got a new drive. This new drive just failed after about a year.
Overall Review: I don't think I will be buying anymore WD Green drives. I use the Red and Black series and they work fine. But these Green drives are just too unreliable.
Pros: I bought this on sale to go into a ESXI 5.0 server. Very fast, thinking about buying 1 or 2 more of these. Currently this one is handling 2 VMs at a time. Worked flawlessly out of the box. Came with a low profile mount.
Cons: None at all for performance. My only small complaint is its long, and may have trouble sitting above some northbridge heatsinks if you have a PCI-E x1 slot at the top.
Overall Review: Would easily buy 2 more.
Great card so far
Pros: Awesome card so far. I am running this card in Eyefinity (5760x1080). Only had the card for a day, but it is great. Can max BF3 at the above resolution with 50-60FPS. I upgraded from a single 6970 to this and I definitely see a performance increase. Pretty cool, cooler than my 6970. Overclocks pretty nicely as well.
Cons: Nothing that I see yet. I noticed that I can only play on extreme settings in Crysis 2 and get above 30FPS. Still looks amazing.
Overall Review: I am running 3 Asus 23" screens (5760x1080) Intel Core i7 2600k 4.8Ghz 16GB DDR3 RAM AMD 7970 3GB 60GB OS SSD
Pros: Got this CPU a little over a week ago, amazing performance. Upgraded from a Phenom IIx4@4Ghz to this i7 overclocked to 4.5Ghz and the performance is unbelievable. Overclocks so easy, managed to hit 4.5Ghz on stock voltage. Planning on hitting 5Ghz when I have the time to experiment. Can't comment on the stock heatsink, as I have opted to use a Noctua NH-D14 to keep it cool. And wow its cool, idles at 25C and maxes at 54C. Such a great CPU for the price. Intel could easily be charging $500 for this CPU.
