Pros: Insane deal ($300) at the time. Very fast processor and the screen refresh rate is excellent for everything. Huge allotment of ram means I don't have to close programs. I'm not a mobile gamer, but reading and scrolling on the device is so much nicer on 120hz. The speakers are worth all the hype. I love watching video on my phone and I hate using earbuds while at home or in a private location. The battery life at 50% brightness and 120hz is also fantastic. I easily go all day with several hours of on screen time.
Cons: Camera is lack luster. This was probably my second least important factor though. I do very little photography on my phone and the camera is more than adequate for what I do. Overall the camera is not bad, but if it's important that your phone have an excellent camera this is probably not what you should buy. Design is terrible. Again this is very unimportant for me. I don't care that it's a literal box, as It's more important that it's a super fast internet device with great speakers and an elite screen. It's very big. I don't have large hands, so without a tactile case it's very slippery and hard to hold.
Overall Review: Upgraded from Moto X Pure. What a change for the better.
Terrible Quality control.
Pros: -I'd like to get a working monitor first.
Cons: -two DOA monitors in a row, what a great product. -first monitor has large dead area, second one has dead pixels.
Overall Review: There were reviews that spoke to the poor quality of these monitors, but I was willing to take a chance. I'm now taking my third chance. Does Acer even test their products?
8 Months in. Great purchase even considering the price drops in the market.
Pros: -Runs as fast as the benchmarks online said it would. Great value purchase for 100+ fps on all titles (that I've tried) 1080P medium/high settings. -I hit 144 fps on a lot of older titles I enjoy, as well as some newer ones like Apex Legends (1080P medium), Divinity 2 (highest, with some drops during explosion effects), and ESO (medium).
Cons: -It gets really loud when the fan kicks to max settings, but this almost never happens and it normally doesn't last long (maybe 10 seconds) so I didn't remove a star. -It's very large and heavy compared to the R9 280 I upgraded from, so if you have a small case check the dimensions.
Overall Review: Happy at $230 with $30 gift card deal. At 180-200ish or so this is an easy purchase.
OK, but the Empire really needs a new model.
Pros: They look pretty sweet, i can really get into the rebel killing mood with one.
Cons: Can't see a thing, i hit my head on the doors in the Death Star all the time. They don't stop any blaster fire either, heck, i don't even know if they could stop a small army of rock throwing teddy bears (like that would ever apply).
