Pros: Great deal with the MIR. Works at stated timings, although you'll need to set the timings/voltage manually in your BIOS. Have mine running at 4-4-4-12 1T 2.2v 400MHz (DDR2-800) on a P5K-E and E8400.
Cons: A little taller than I expected, but not an issue.
Overall Review: Needed to replace a bad stick from another manufacturer and for the price (even without the mail in rebate) it was a deal too good to pass up.
Pros: Nice, bright crisp image. It was a nice upgrade from my old 19" non-widescreen LCD. No dead/stuck pixels. Not a bad "Value" monitor. Games look fantastic (CoD4, Crysis, GTR2, Bioshock) as do movies. It is a HDCP monitor although I don't think it mentioned it in the specs.
Cons: Only reason I didn't give it 5 eggs is because of backlight bleeding. Mainly at the top and bottom of screen, less on the sides. It's not terrible, but it's there. For $250 I can live with it though.
Overall Review: I was having a hard time deciding between the X223 and this one. The base works well for sticky note pads.
Pros: Good Features, Good Price.
Booted up first try, easily set RAM timings to their specs.
Cons: Poor board layout, should move the IDE Connector to where the Floppy is, move the SATA ports somewhere else so that a long video card doesn't block them. Had to use the 90 degree cable but then it blocks the other port. But I knew this already so it was not a surprise. Also it's a good thing I really only needed 1 PCI slot, as a 2 slot video card will block one and it would be really close to the next one as well. Had to use the very bottom PCI slot.
Overall Review: Got this and 2x1Gb G.Skill DDR2-800 4-4-3-5, C2D E6550, BFG 8800 GTS G92 OC, OCZ StealthXStream 600w PSU. It runs sweet. No issues at all. Other than poor board design.
