Pros: Nice looking monitor
Cons: Monitor RGB lighting is not cuatomizeable as they advertised.
Overall Review: It is a nice looking monitor and the display worked well. The problem is, they advertise the RGB on the back of the monitor as customizeable (look at the picture of their website I uploaded). It is not, it just stays blue. Nowhere in the instructions does it say how to change the colors, and there is no option on the monitor settings to change them. But even with that, the blue light stopped working after 2 weeks. With the false advertising along with the lights failing, I decided to return it before anything else went wrong.
It has a headset hanger, which is nice.
Pros: It works
Cons: Only compatible with limited Fractal Design cases
Overall Review: I bought this and failed to notice that this bracket is only compatible with a few of Fractal Design's cases. Ale sure you have the right case. It will not work on cases with permanent horizontal PCI slot edges. Fractal Design's newer cases are designed with the PCI slot edges being removable along with the slot covers.
However, I was still able to use the cable on the vertical PCI slots already in my Meshify S2 without any problems. Oddly, this whole bracket/cable assembly is cheaper than their Flex VRC-25, which is only the cable? So I guess we might as well buy this.
Pros: Overclockable to 2130
Cons: Fans are loud as I expected
Overall Review: I was able to Overclock the card to 2130MHz and typically see it get to 2090MHz. Idles at 55C and gaming will get it to 75C with spikes to 80C occasionally.
With 3 smaller fans instead of 2, it is loud as most GPU fans are. The nice thing is, the fans stay off until it hits 60C, so it stays silent when I'm not gaming. Had zero issues with drivers. The only thing, as with many AMD GPUs right now, is the common screen flickering with Freesync on.
Also, no dual BIOS on this card. The Gigabyte aRGB software is able to control the GPU lighting on my MSI board.
Cons: Openings too small for RGB connectors
Overall Review: This is a nice way to organize the cables in a case. Take into consideration, the size of the space you're going to install this as it may not work for smaller cases. The biggest issue is the openings for the aRGB cable is way too small. I had aRGB for 3 different brand fans/accessories, one being Fractal Design, and none of them really fit. I had to shave some plastic off the connector edges to get it in. Other than that, it's good.
Pros: This feels heavy, that means it's solid. The metal build gives it strength... gives it power to defeat your enemies. If someone attacks me I can use this keyboard as a weapon no problem. The RGB is very evenly and brightly lit. They GX Brown keys feel great. The USB pass through is perfect for putting my Logitech mouse receiver, keeping the signal close so the radio waves don't get tired from traveling through the air.
Cons: Work on your bicep curls while you're waiting for this in the mail.
Overall Review: I do love this keyboard, it feels good and looks great since it looks like a regular keyboard. It doesn't look I'm trying too hard to appear like a gamer with a bunch of craziness on it.
Pros: It's crisp, it's bright, 144hz is silky smooth. What you get at the price point is pretty amazing. I don't think I can go back to standard ratio monitors anymore.
Cons: I can't go back to a normal life. When I go to movie theaters, if it's not 144hz I walk out.
Speakers are not great but I don't expect them to be on any monitor.
Overall Review: I would recommend. I'm not sure how they priced this so well.
Pros: A really comfortable fit. I use it for WoW and yes you can program ALL the buttons to do other things. They don't have to be used for the DPI adjustment. A really great buy.
Cons: Software froze during installation but I just canceled it and I'm facing no problems yet so it's hardly a con.
Overall Review: you won't regret buying this mouse. Perfect fit for the average size hand.
Pros: Perfect level of firmness. Great size for the average sized wrist. It's firmer than those really soft, conforming jelly pads you usually see. The curve on the front is really comfortable.
Pros: It's really thin, and has a large area to move your mouse around. Cool looking design. Shipped from Newegg to Japan in just one week!
Overall Review: It's great how thin this thing is compared to every other mouse pad.
Pros: It's fast, it's not ugly looking. And you can stick the cap on the back so you don't lose it.
Overall Review: it's white so mine is dirty now.
Pros: Dropped my graphics card temperature by 12 C at idle and 10 C at full load. Not too hard of an install.
Cons: None really.
Overall Review: I don't really like copper heatsinks. They have more heat capacity tham aluminum but tarnish faster.
Pros: I guess my games ran a little faster.
Cons: I don't know what happened. I thought it would by an upgrade from P4 3.06 ghz but after installing this my computer would randomly freeze up even in idle. Maybe because it's an HP from 2006, who knows? So I tried updating everything to fix it. Including downloading the microsoft hotfix for dual-core processors. And while I was updating my BIOS guess what, it freezes and renders my motherboard useless. So now I have to buy a new computer pretty much.
Overall Review: It wasn't fun while it lasted.
Pros: Plenty of power. Seems to have solved my random reboot problem. Blue LEDs look pretty cool. They're really bright. Runs cooler than my stock power supply. And the downward blowing Fan helps cool the inside of my case.
Cons: If you have HP computer you'll have trouble fitting it in there. had to bend part of my case so the outlet part would fit. That's it.
Overall Review: Lots of dangling wires.
Pros: Upgraded from 1 gig to 2. Much better performance. No problems running multiple programs anymore.
Overall Review: Orange...
