Most Favorable Review

Decent monitor

SAMSUNG 245BW 24" WUXGA 1920 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor with Height Adjustment
SAMSUNG 245BW 24" WUXGA 1920 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor with Height Adjustment

Pros: Brighter than my previous LCD monitor (Viewsonic VPS201s). I can actually see that certain colors are grey and not black.

Cons: As others have mentioned, viewing angles are pretty bad but I mostly use it for gaming and spreadsheet work and it's not an issue.

Overall Review: In terms of "natural" colors, they look pretty good to me but it can also be a function of one's video card (I have 8800 GTS).

Fan

Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan

Pros: It's quiter than other fans at comparable RPM's. I replaced my Silverstone FM121 (started making weird noises) and this one runs quiter at the lower setting.

Cons: Max CFM only 63.7 and is pretty expensive (hopefully will pay itself off by the longevity claim).

Overall Review: For people who say this fan is loud -- it is at maximum speed - 1600 rpm. This also happens to be the default speed if you connect the fan to Molex (from the main 3-pin connector). If however, you connect the fan to your motherboard (sys fan - all 3 pins). You can use something like SpeedFan and reduced the RPM (possibly in your motherboard's BIOS as well). This is pretty similar to the hardware adjustment that I used to do with Silverstone. If I play a game I crank it all the way up, for all other activities use the setting at which you can't hear it...
