Pros: Great little HSF! Mine is coupled with the sockett775 mounting bracket and keeps my Q6600 nice and cool. Hitting max temps of 31 while Idled and low 50's at 100% load on all four cores. This is will a moderate OverClock of 3.2
Cons: None to speak of.
Overall Review: Ive tried several HSF's in the past few years and this is defiantely in the top 3 for air cooled setups!
Pros: Nicest looking fan on the market!
Cons: The backplate is made extremely poorly. Mine cracked on three of the ends where the nuts are encased by plastic. With barely any force, while installing the screws, they broke, thus making the nuts free spin. I thought I was going to break my motherboard trying to get this thing back off. The HS is now useless.
Overall Review: I'd love to get another one based on looks and from what others have said about performance, but until the backplates are made better I am going to go with a TT.
Pros: Ordered on a Wednesday, received it on Friday. The monitor is with out a doubt, huge!. Like all have said, it is bright out of the box. The X-Contrast works well as it constantly changes the brightness on its own depending on what is being displayed. This may not be as appealing for some but can be dealt with by simply playing with the brightness, contrast and color settings a little and turning the X-Contrast off. Games look incredible! I can see people clear across the map in games like COD4. No dead pixels! Not ONE! No ghosting in games, the 3ms works great!
Overall Review: I havent' used the speakers so I can't tell you about those. I have sound through a 5.1 system. It's as easy as plug and play. I highly recomend this monitor for all.
Pros: Good quality construction. Plenty of screws and bolts for different mounting applications and TV sizes. I was able to install the bracket without the assistance of another person. The built in level (bubble level) made it quick and easy to install.
Overall Review: I am ordering another one today after seeing how nice this bracket is. You can't beat the price either. Well done Rosewill and NewEgg!
