Diamond CMW310 40"-60" Tilt TV Wall Mount LED & LCD HDTV, up to VESA 600x400mm max load 130 lbs. Compatible with Samsung, Vizio, Sony, Panasonic, LG, and Toshiba TV

Pros: Great mount very heavy thick metal. It tilts down so it is perfect to mount up high.

Cons: No level adjustment once it is mounted. Make sure you get it level on the wall and the brackets are leveled on the back of the TV. The tilt function has to be done with a 10 inch long hexwrench which is included.

Overall Review: Hanging a 36 inch viewsonic. Works great.

Most Critical Review

Failed

WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX
WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX

Pros: The first RMA went smooth.

Cons: I bought 3 of these in late 2014. One failed in 8 weeks. Another just died after 10 months. Bad sectors then widows errors when you try to browse the drive.

Overall Review: Its disappointing to loose data have to pay to ship the thing to Western Digital to get a refurb as a replacement.

Nice monitor

MSI Optix MAG240CR 24" (23.5" Viewable) Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms (MPRT) 165Hz (Overclock) HDMI, DisplayPort FreeSync Height Adjustable Curved Gaming Monitor
MSI Optix MAG240CR 24" (23.5" Viewable) Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms (MPRT) 165Hz (Overclock) HDMI, DisplayPort FreeSync Height Adjustable Curved Gaming Monitor

Pros: I picked up 2. Look good, no dead pixel. 165hz up and running display port. nice stand, height, pivot and tilt. Rear LEDs are so dim you cant even tell they are on.

Cons: Only 23.5 inches. No speakers. A little pricey.

Overall Review: I picked up 2, I am happy.

2 USB 2 and 2 USB 3 and Audio!

Rosewill FBM-X1 Black Steel / Plastic Mini Tower Case with Side Panel Window
Rosewill FBM-X1 Black Steel / Plastic Mini Tower Case with Side Panel Window

Pros: 2 USB 2 and 2 USB 3. Very inexpensive. 5.25 bay, for more a controller panel or DVD/Blueray. Front 120mm... but its blocked. Simple plastic window is nice.

Cons: Front panel is a solid chunk of plastic. I thought it was mesh, or would have vents. The only vent is very small slit at the bottom, this makes the front fan almost useless. Large GPUs don't really fit. They will touch the 3.5 drive mount, or drive if one is mounted.

Overall Review: 80 MM rear Fan. 2 3.5MM drive mounts. 1 2.5mm drive mount. If you get creative you can mount a 2.5 drive sideways under the back cover. I also used an old DVD drive and drilled a bunch of holes to mount 4 2.5 MM SSDs.

Ok Mouse

Pros: Built in rechargeable battery is nice.

Cons: Hard plastic sides are weird. The left and right click buttons are silent. There is no audible, or tactile feed back that they clicked.

Overall Review: OK

The picture and quality seems good. I can't reach the "control stick" so I can't turn it on or off, or change the input.

GIGABYTE G27FC 27" 165Hz 1080P Curved Gaming Monitor, 1920 x 1080 VA 1500R Display, 1ms (MPRT) Response Time, 90% DCI-P3, FreeSync Premium, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x HDMI 1.4, 2x USB 3.0, Height Adjustable

Pros: Works well. 165hz at a value. I don't see any blur. No dead pixels. Speakers are ok. Came with a power wire for US and UK and Europe. Came with a nice HDMI and Display Port cable.

Cons: Its so frustrating. I have to get out of chair to work the control stick. Its so far back from the bottom or the side I can't reach it. I work from home, I have like 6 different monitors. 3 have traditional buttons, 3 have sticks. This is the only one with a control stick I can't reach. Use 3 computers all plugged into this monitor so being able to easily switch input is important to me.

Overall Review: Nice Picture. I would give it 5 stars, but I am so frustrated by the inability to easily use the controls stick.
