Pros: Pre-made settings profiles
Great color and brightness
Blue light filter
Cons: Bezel isn't very thin
Speakers are meh but who buys monitors for the speakers?
Overall Review: I've had this monitor two weeks and I love it! Movies and games look brilliant and vibrant and I can quickly change between profiles. My biggest complaint is with the V-shaped stand I can no longer use my monitor platform and had to remove it from my desk, which also had my headset stand, controller stand, and cupholder. Ill
Pros: This card runs new games beautifully. I can run BF3, AC3, Hitman Absolution, and more on most of the highest settings and average 50+ FPS. It starts to stagger, however, if the anti-aliasing settings are turned up high, so I keep those somewhat low.
It's ninja quiet and stays cool as well; the hottest I've seen it get is ~50C. It also overclocks without a hitch using EVGA Precision.
The size really surprised me. It is really small compared to my 9800GTX+ that it replaced. Could probably fit three or four of them on a motherboard.. if it supported SLI.
Cons: Doesn't support SLI.
Overall Review: I actually wanted to do the EVGA step up program to possibly get a 670, so that someday when they got cheaper, I could buy another and run them in SLI. Unfortunately, I can't because I didn't buy the extended warranty within thirty days.
Running with these components:
Asrock Z77 Extreme3 motherboard
8 GB Ram
Intel Core i3 2120 3.3 GHz
Pros: This headset worked right out of the box and has amazing sound. Love listening to music with it, playing games, and friends say I sound clearer on Ventrilo. These have a lot more bass than I'm used to for headphones.
Overall Review: More bass than I really need so I'll need to mess around with some settings to lower it. Using onboard Realtek HD Audio.
Pros: I bought this because I heard good things about Samsung LCD monitors. The color can be really good once you calibrate it with the software that comes with it. There's no dead pixels at all. Works with Vista and has DVI. I've never had a widescreen or LCD and was hoping this would be good.
Cons: Where do I start? There's really bad color bleeding at the top of the screen, also at the bottom but not quite as bad as the top. The ghosting is really terrible in games, which is what I primarily use my computer for. Text can sometimes get hard to read as well, or not even show up. The back panel constantly falls off even after securing it. Maybe I should tape it down..
Overall Review: A lot of newer games support its native resolution but if it's older then you can scale it down. (I can at least with nvidia control panel, don't know how it is without)
