Pros: High refresh rate - it even takes a 60hz signal input and doubles it to 120hz so that you don't get headaches.
Even works with minimal computer (have a Udoo X86 single board computer connected to it as a second computer).
Lots of desktop. I had a 21:9 monitor before this debated if I should replace it. This is what I really wanted to have when i bought that one. Great for CAD work, Video Editing, etc.
Cons: Takes a bit of adjustment to get used to the curve.
The base of the monitor sticks out a bit, not a huge issue as they are at an obtuse angle (120+ degrees?).
Overall Review: If I had to buy it again, I'd pick one that matched my video card and was flat.
Pros: Has everything I want to use with my phone.
Cons: Hooking up the phone, the power does not allow even a mouse to work. I added power on the usb-c and it worked for a second, but did not allow it to work as needed. I have a 3 amp input going in, phone will go into charge mode and the mouse will disable. Be sure to get your phone in the right mode with this. Still unable to use this with just the phone.
Pros: I really like the Wood look and lightness. The sound is excellent. Materials used are of good quality (braided/shielded cable, metal connectors, Mini plug).
Cons: Size of the ear coverage was smaller than I expected, covered the ear, but only just.
Overall Review: I wanted to replace my gaming headset with this, as I rarely use the mic on my current one. If I order another one, I'll have to pick a bigger model though, I hate getting my ears (at least the tips) crushed to the side of my head. Gave them to my wife, who has smaller ears.
Pros: I recommend this drive to anyone who wants to put a small computer together and needs a small drive to go in it. I put it in a BeeBox (NUC sized computer), and have had no problems with it at all. I am even able to dual boot with Linux and Windows with room to spare. This is a Mini-SATA, so you must have the hardware to use it.
Pros: This Dual Monitor stand is well designed, uses a extruded rail system to mount the monitors and adjust them easily and quickly. It would even be able to handle a third monitor if they offered an extra mount kit.
Cons: I actually wanted something that would sit above another monitor, but there isn't any options to get a longer pole, so I welded one together. I also would really like to mount a third monitor, but there isn't an option to buy another mount either.
Pros: These sticks worked perfectly out of the pack, easy to install (as expected). 16GB for nice price
Overall Review: shipping was quick, Thanks NewEgg
Pros: Good size viewing for less money. Even small videos on web pages show up close to full (normal sized) screen. Saves space because i got rid of my lower resolution 27in monitor, and still have room for 2nd monitor. (Now I have the equivalent of 3 monitors!)
Cons: Doesn't setup right with some video cards. Check for compatibility before you buy. I wasn't able to run it off of my DVI-D connector at highest resoultion, but it works well with my optional HDMI port.
Overall Review: I had thought about getting the higher resolution monitor than this one, but I do not regret getting this at half the price of the other.
Pros: This is a micro-computer, poweful enough to run most everyday applications, yet compact enough to be hidden behind the flatscreen. It is an android, yet it is open for development.
Cons: no accessories, get a kit if its offered (keyboard/mouse, camera/mic, usb hub, maybe micro sd card).
Overall Review: I love the expandability of it! It shipped quickly. I'm excited to test all its functons.
Pros: Small, decent sound
Cons: Controller has a velcro sticker for it, if its pulled off too many times, it no longer sticks.
Overall Review: not bad for 2.1 setup, nothing spectacular though.
Pros: Fast, Brightly Colored
Overall Review: at least I can now rely on my computer to remember somethings that I can't
Pros: This case is well built. It has enough room to accomodate other manufacturers ATX designed components (except motherboard of course), yet it still has the airflow to keep tings cool. I did put in a Geforce GTX 670 video card without any problems.I installed a Roswell 600W Power Supply, which was designed for the ATX form factor. I installed 4 hard drives and a CD drive, and still had plenty of airflow.
Cons: Not enough cable ties included, had to get more. No filters on this case
Overall Review: This case is awesome, I wish there were more options for the front of it (would be nice to swap out the USB2 ports on front for a capable card reader and a single USB port). I will probably change the front to something more smilar to my other furniture (but that is merely artwork, which is just fun to do)
Pros: Really increases productivity of current drives. Once I read the details of what I received, it made perfect sense.
Cons: I did not realize this was strictly a caching drive, so it was a shock when I first installed it. I tried to set it up with a 3TB drive and it only can cache 2TB worth. It only reads half of the memory as usable (the other half is only cache).
Overall Review: Read Carefully the description before you buy. I can see why the drive tends to be returned more than others (I want to see everything that is on my drive).
Pros: For the small board that it is, it delivers quite the computing power. I bought it with a i7-3770 chip, and it delivered everything I wanted in it. It has the video slot to handle the higher end cards, the Wifi/Lan onboard to handle the networking need. Even has a built-in video in case you are hesitant to get the big card. Installation was quick and easy. It is also very capable of overclocking if you so desire. The software has live monitoring to help you decide what works best for you.
Overall Review: well, I did have some trouble snaping the memory in place, but that was me not wanting to break anything. I really like having wireless onboard, wish they would do this more commonly.
Pros: Huge Fan to keep the power flowing. Wires wrapped cleanly to keep he cables going where they should. Attractive black case with red lettering. Low noise.
Cons: If they wanted to keep it realy attractive they would hide the off colors you can see through the mesh (no worries though, its not an open viewing case). For the ITX form factor, this has too many cables. I had to snip some off to keep from blocking too much airflow. I would have liked to have the option of quickly removing some unused SATA cables (even if it meant opening the case).
Overall Review: This is a mid range Power Supply. they should expect more of these to be put into ITX cases, and accomodate it.
Pros: I set this up quickly on my new ASRock ITX motherboard. It installed without a hitch, and it immediatly showed some of what it is capable of with the testbench software on the CD. I was notably impressed. I have almost doubled my FPS on WoT and MWO!
Cons: It does produce a fair amount of dB increase when the fan kicks on, which I mark up to price of progress.
Overall Review: Currently this has as much memory as the rest of my computer (with a 32bit OS). The card is well made, with a shroud to help keep the air flowing where it is needed and to keep other objects out (like fingers).
Pros: The Keyboard has software with it that logs my passwords and ties them to my fingerprint. It allows for several fingers to be encoded if you want. (suppose you could do a toe if you like :P)
Cons: it is a wired keyboard, but that means you don't run out of batteries. Has only one configuration (non-ergonomic).
Overall Review: it is one of the lowest costing keyboards on the market with fingerprint capabilities.
