Pretty freekin awesome

Seiki SE39UY04 39", 4K, 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV
Seiki SE39UY04 39", 4K, 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV

Pros: Running 3 of these (separately), one off a 2013 macbook pro retina (15") via HDMI at 4k resolution (I didnt think the HDMI would suffice but I was wrong), image quality is AWESOME, and the price (I paid $500 on sale) was unbelievable. The other two are running off of GTX 760's on hackintosh systems, works flawlessly.

Cons: One display came without any HDMI cable, no screws to attach the stand and no instructions or remotes. I'm sure this was not a normal scenario, but still...not good to not have a decent quality control team ensuring things like this doesn't happen. Imagine if this order was sent to Hawaii, the poor guy would have to ship it back, wait another few weeks in order to get another. I'd be livid.

Overall Review: Overall it's awesome. I have a couple graphic designers working with them, the color is superb and our video editor loves that he can edit RAW RED Epic footage in it's native 4k resolution.

Slowest Printer I've ever used

HP LaserJet Pro CP1525nw CE875A Workgroup Up to 12 ppm 600 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality Color Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer
HP LaserJet Pro CP1525nw CE875A Workgroup Up to 12 ppm 600 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality Color Wireless 802.11b/g/n Laser Printer

Pros: It's very affordable for a HP color laser printer, and the photo images are not spectacular, most photo inkjets produce better images and have better color reproduction than affordable laserjets though. It's a small compact size and is immediately recognized by my Mac OS running home office, as well as it works with iOS airprint. Can be networked via cat5 or USB

Cons: Slow, epic on the slow scale!!! Takes what seems forever to warm up, and each page prints so slow. In a rush and need to print that 10 page pdf real quick? Well don't use this, itll take about 8-9 minutes for it to be finished (at least). Toner capacity/usage is pretty horrible as well, I've printed 298 color pages and about 400 black pages and I am already getting low on toner. Toner prices at Officemax is ridiculous, something like $75 PER toner, which means a full replacement would be like $300!!!! more than the cost of the printer! I found a place that replaces it for $35 a cartridge with real HP toner. Photo quality. Even on HP laserjet photo paper, the image is just sub-standard at highest print settings. For reports and basic text, it looks fine. For graphical flyers or photos, I'd rate it a 3.5 out of 10 which is pretty abysmal. I have 4 printers in my small home office, this one replaced a non -MAC compatible Dell 2130cn and I now realize is a worse printer.

Overall Review: If you want to print photos or graphical flyers, this is NOT the printer to get, you might as well get a fast printing inkjet, the cost of the ink cartridges will be much cheaper than the toner on this. If your only printing text documents and are never EVER in a rush and have a lot of patience, then sure buy this, but the cost of the toner replacement is really BAD. Overall, I would NOT buy this or any of the CP 15XX series printers from HP. I'd buy a samsung color laser instead, or xerox.

Blazing fast performance

ASUS GeForce GTX TITAN 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card GTXTITAN-6GD5
ASUS GeForce GTX TITAN 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card GTXTITAN-6GD5

Pros: I'm running 3x 30" Dell LCD's at 7680x1600 in every game....I have two Titans in SLI and these cards can handle almost anything you throw at them !

Cons: Not 5 stars because it's extremely expensive. For being a PC gamer for over 15 years, we are *almost* "there". "There" being a point in time in which GPU's finally can deliver 200+ fps in any game at ANY resolution with MAX details, MAX AA/AS, Bloom, HDR, Tesselation etc.

Overall Review: If I were considering buying these...and I know we always say this....but wait until the next "Titan" replacement comes and then drop the cash on those. Whatever replaces the Titans in the next generation will be mind blowingly amazing, cost the exact same, and deliver at least 30% more performance which I believe will tip the scale .

beautiful display, good performance

Dell S2740L Black 27" IPS-Panel HDMI Widescreen LED Monitor 270 cd/m2 DCR 8,000,000:1 (1000:1)
Dell S2740L Black 27" IPS-Panel HDMI Widescreen LED Monitor 270 cd/m2 DCR 8,000,000:1 (1000:1)

Pros: It's an LED display with a full glass cover, it does great with games and with spreadsheets and everything else I do on my computer. I bought 2 of these and do not see any light issues or light leaks. I really really like these!

Cons: Doesnt come with HDMI cable.

Overall Review: Three of these on a good computer would ROCK for gaming!

Honestly AWESOME

EVGA GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1580-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1580-AR

Pros: I'm a super techie as well as typically an "early adopter". I was running 4x XFX 5870's on my 3x 30" Dell LCDs and I wasn't to pleased with my gaming performance, it was "ok". I switched to 3x 480 MSI lightning super clocked twin frozr III cards AMD the performance was about 15-20% better than the 5870's but the heat was Waaay to much to cope with on the 480's. I bought 3x 580's AMD am so pleased with it's ridiculous performance at 7680x1600, all options maxed, and they are not nearly as hot as the 480's and perform about 10-15% better than the 3x 480's.

Cons: Price and availability and Neweggs 2x max purchase policy. I may have bought cheaper brand if I was able to but Newegg didn't allow it with most of the other cards, but regardless I'm totally happy with these :)

Overall Review: They require less power than my 480's and do not produce nearly as much heat as the 480's. Excellent cards sure to last a year.

Excellent card

XFX Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card HD-587X-ZNFV
XFX Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card HD-587X-ZNFV

Pros: Works great, I am running it in triple crossfire on an Asus Rampage Extreme III, which I also bought from Newegg. Some people don't understand why have two or three cards, but anyone with a 30" LCD that doesnt play on cr*ppy low resolutions like 1920x1080 know exactly why. I play all my games at 2560x1600 with ALL options maxed on a 30" dell LCD, it's literally gaming nirvana. Playing Metro 2033 however with DX11 still brings all three cards to a stutter, so I must play it at a much lower resolution. But for all other games out there, it smashes FPS.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Contrary to what people say in forums if you plan on running Two or more of these, you want a MINIMUM of 1000 watt PSU, preferably by Corsair or Thermaltake, or PPC, preferably 1200watt specifically if your running i7 or i7, with 2 or more HDD's.
