Pros: Going from 1080p 60 Hz non G-sync to this monitor was a great improvement for me. Arma is beautiful now and very smooth, as are all the games I tested using G-sync. I really like the stand this monitor comes with, lots of tilt and swivel options, and you can adjust the height. The quality of the picture is good, but not great ( see in Cons). The monitor itself looks very nice and modern with a thin border. I did not have any dead pixels on mine. Fingers crossed.
Cons: The anti glare coating ( I guessing this is what im seeing) is really awful. If you look at anything white the screen just looks dirty. I want to clean it, but thats just how it is. If you could remove this the picture would be beautiful and would be a 5 star gaming monitor but it detracts from the quality of the picture no doubt about it. If the in game performance wasn't amazing I would have returned it just for this coating.
DO NOT enable "Fast" in the response time settings of the monitor itself. It caused massive ghosting in games and surfing the web. I thought the monitor was broken until I turned this option off. Then all the ghosting went away. It is very bright when shipped so turn down the brightness a lot and it will quickly improve the picture quality.
Overall Review: I guess I would recommend it to gamers who can live with the coating. The 144 Hz and G-sync work very well. The monitor is nice and big and the picture quality is good, but with the coating they used, not great.
Pros: Got it for free with new MSI laptop. Nice looking bag and has tons of room for large laptops. Comfortable to wear even with my heavy gaming laptop.
Cons: Wish it had a little bit more padding for protection
Pros: Bought in 2008... 4 or 5 graphics cards and 3 or 4 mobos later and it still is running PERFECT. It now is powering a GTX 1080 FTW Edition. Best dam pc component Ive ever paid good money for. Screw module, I have zip ties. Power supply is worth its weight in gold. How can they not make them like this anymore? When it does finally die, if I'm still alive, I will bury it in the backyard next to my favorite dog.
Cons: Cons.... No.
Overall Review: I have a bro crush on a power supply and Im ok with that. Wrote this review to praise PC Power and Cooling as a company. I know you cant get this PSU anymore, but they deserve a huge thumbs up from me.
Pros: Tons of room. Keeps everything nice and cool. 2 big fans on the side and rear fan keep the air moving nicely. Everything fits into this tower with ease. It looks great too. Doesn't look cheap at all and its a solid, heavy box. Would buy again for sure.
Cons: Can't turn the led lights off without turning the fans off too, not a big deal.
Overall Review: If you are a gamer, and are building a overclocked gaming rig which you need lots of room, great cooling action, get this tower.
Comments: This CPU comes with enough heat trasfer to provide safe operation in 98% of daily use(Gaming or multimedia). Ive read all this junk about heat issues. If you have overheating issues, your case is the issue, welded air tight,or you are the issue, not your 3.0ghz setup. Dont believe all the talk of "you need this fan, and this thermal paste..." Just follow the directions and relax, not everything in life needs to be tweaked.
