Incredible Monitor

ViewSonic VX2435WM Piano Black 24" 8ms Widescreen FULL HD 1080p HDMI (w/HDCP) LCD Monitor 500 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers
ViewSonic VX2435WM Piano Black 24" 8ms Widescreen FULL HD 1080p HDMI (w/HDCP) LCD Monitor 500 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers

Pros: This monitor has definitely lived up to my expectations. And they were high. This is the best looking lcd monitor I have layed my eyes on. This is a P-MVA panel which means brilliant, crisp colors and great viewing angles.

Cons: None so far besides a slight hint of ghosting when I was looking hard for it.

Overall Review: P-MVA panels have 8-bit color channels(8-bits of resolution on each red green and blue value making a true 24-bit display) Whereas the market driven super fast TN panels are 6-bit and employ tricks like dithering to achieve close to 8-bit color. They sacrifice a lot of sharpness in the image as dithering is where a group of pixels all average out the the "right" color. I Highly recommend this monitor for image editing and movies.

Wonderfull sound

Pros: Sound is amazing, I upgraded from the Audigy2zs and the difference using a good pair of cans is amazing. Everyone but an audiophile will be ecstatic with the quality of sound they hear from the bay as well. The front bay has no shortage of ports and, as a bonus, it catches peoples eyes with it's slick looks.

Cons: Movies in the Creative Media Center are choppy for me so I won't be using the remote to watch movies.

Overall Review: This is obvious but: This is for GAMERS. Movies and Songs are wonderful as well though. Plenty of options but is not cumbersome. BF2 is a dream with this card as it supports the x-ram. I have had no problems with popping with my nForce4 mobo.

Better than I could have imagined

Pros: Incredible feel to keys. Very small: It folds in half! EASY to set up; in fact, it's almost automatic. Secure connection with nice range. I could go on...

Cons: Only minor gripe, but the numbers require a function key to access and occupy the top row of letters. As this is better than adding to the size, I can get over it.

Overall Review: Feels like an ultra portable laptop keyboard. It locks open so you could even use it on your lap.

Awsome!

Pros: Looks slick, FAST transfer speeds, very small.

Cons: After it is 'Safely Removed' using the task bar, the platters continue to spin. It gets the same hairline scratches like ipods do.

Overall Review: It is very handy for me because I don't own a laptop. It would also be good for laptop users who need the extra storage. It is slimmer than it looks!

Very small

Great!!!

Pros: Small, comfortable, easy to use. The perfect mobile keyboard. It feels and types like an ultra portable laptop and doesn't miss a beat with it's fast bluetooth.

Cons: The number keys are shared with the top line of the keyboard. It is only a minor irritation to use the function key to access them so it still gets a perfect score.

Overall Review: Only took one try to pair with my axim x51v. No software installation nessesary!
