decent monitor, Samsung quality2/28/2017 8:05:59 AM

Pros: First let me say I own several Samsung TVs and monitors they have been reliable and good performers. This was purchased for a dedicated Flight Sim rig (FSX). It is a decent performer with lots of options.

Cons: When I first set this up I was so disappointed I was considering sending it back. With the default settings it is too bright and without much contrast not sure why anyone would use it this way. It took me three days off and on to get it to look like what I consider a normal out of the box monitor. Maneuvering thru the set up menus is a pain. Don't care for the power brick would rather have a built in power supply with a normal power cord.

Overall Review: This may save anyone with this monitor some time. I finally tried the Cinema mode in the "Magic Bright" configuration. With the brightness set at around 50% (the contrast is preset in this mode) the display looks as it should to me.

Pros: Works as I expected once I got it to work.

Cons: Would not work until I installed the Logitech Unifying Software that I downloaded from Logitech support. I tried it on two of my PCs (windows 7). Glad I tried the software before I sent it back. I have a wired Logitech Trackman wheel that going strong after many years. Too bad they don't make it anymore far superior.

Pros: This is my third Arctic Freezer over the last six or seven years. This model was the easiest to install so far. I remember the first model I owned required a lot of force to get the push pins to engage. This one was way easier. My I7 4077-K runs in the low 40s under load. Very quiet and the fans is just loafing most of the time. I got it on sale for $25.00. a little steep at $40.00.

Cons: The instructions are a little cryptic. I had to do some research to feel comfortable on how tight to make the cooler retention screws.

Overall Review: Be careful when you unpack this think as the protective cover over the pre installed thermal grease will fall off. I stuck my finger in it first thing.

Pros: Great box ! This is as far as I am concerned all you need in a computer case. It has plenty of room and great cooling. I am running three fans the two that came with it and I added a side fan. Just moved my old built out and my new build in. My I7 4770-K runs in the low 40s under load (70 F ambient) using a Arctic Freezer 7 CPU cooler. I have my case fans on med. speed. Quiet and cool what more could you ask for. The price is right. I would rather put my money into the contents of the box. Some of the other cases available have pretty outrageous styling. If you were driving one of them on the boulevard the vice cops would probably pull you over and run you for warrants.

Cons: none

Pros: I have at least 25 builds to my credit in the last 10 years (friends & family). This my third Gigabyte board for my personal use and is working as advertised. The other two builds 2006 & 2009 are still going strong with daily use. I have had problems with the boards from one of the other big outfits that were short lived and buggy. Watch out for boards with cheap capacitors, the board they will likely die young.These are heavy duty boards. I won't buy anything else at this point.

Cons: Had to RMA the first one I received as it had a bent pin on the CPU socket. Newegg as usual came thru.

Overall Review: I highly recommend that you keep all packaging when you purchase hardware at least until the warranty has expired. This is only common sense.

Pros: I purchased three of these in 2007. Two of them have been going strong since 2007. The third I placed in a system that I no longer have info about..ex friend. I have read some comments about folks trying to run a 500 watt system with a 500 watt power supply. You are just looking for failure when you push anything to it's design limit. A cheap power supply will have very little tolerance for such service. That is why expensive power supplies are expensive as they have more head room and are built with better components and engineering. My premo systems have high quality power supplies for that reason.

Cons: none

Pros: Works great..hey it's a mouse.. I read the comment about no on off switch but bought it anyway. Doesn't need one it shuts down after a time and a button click turns it back on. More convenient than a switch. Would of given it 5 eggs if it made beer or cleaned the kitchen. Like I said it's a mouse.

Cons: none

So far, so good.2/18/2012 7:09:22 AM

Pros: The reason I purchased this camera is that it has a view finder. There are no other inexpensive cameras that have one that I could find. A view finder is a great asset and it is too bad the manufacturers have been leaving it out. Great price ($79) and the quality of the photos is what you would expect from a point and shoot. For those who want to use the extensive features take a look at the manual that is on the CD or download it from Canon. The printed manual has around 50 pages the PDF version has 150 pages.

Cons: The recycle time for the flash is a little slow which effects time between shots.

Overall Review: If you want a point & shoot with a view finder better grab it as this is a dying breed.

Pros: I have been using Gigabyte hardware for several years and have had good luck until now.

Cons: Started giving me artifacts right from the start. I tried everything I could think, no luck. I have never had a bad video card before so I wasn't sure if it was maybe a driver issue. I am pretty sure now the card was defective. Newegg as usual took good care of me and gave a complete refund. Bought a 9800GT and it works great.
