Pros: Not enough good things to say about this monitor. After I read a few horror stories and expected the worst when my box came somewhat crushed with the seals popped.
To my surprise absolutely perfect condition once out of the packaging no bleed nor dead pixels. From the reviews where people complain about the brightness and bleed you have to remember this monitor comes with the back light almost set to full and tuning it down to 28 will bring you from near 40 watt draw to low 20's.
Once you have the monitor all hooked up start with a baseline of:
GameVisual preset mode
100, 96, 96
This will give you the best mix of response time, stable colors, least eyestrain possible and look absolutely fantastic.
The AU Optronics M270DAN02.3 AHVA Panel is shared by the Acer XB270HU which costs significantly more.
This will hold me over years maybe even a decade.
Cons: No Blur reduction mode and as others have said the free sync range could be higher.
Pros: Built a PC for a friend with this case with a final price of 35.99!!! Just insane how cheap this aluminum case was. So much room for expansion I loved the layout. Rubber mounted everything, tool-less disassembly, a real fun little case that looks great and was simple to build with. Was a shame to have actually give it away I missed the case that much.
Paired with some quiet fans you will hardly even hear it running. Simple lines of the case look great and it will fit into a ton of small spaces. The dust filters on the fans are one of my fav parts the fans remove easily for cleaning( Great for dog/cat owners.)
Cons: For the price I can't fault anything really, MAYBE you can find a gripe with no front usb ports but that's it.
Pros: Does everything it says with no issues, a lot quieter than other drives and is a somewhat heavy sturdy piece.
Cons: You may not like the size it can be a bit big. Disk tray moves slowly(minor gripe).
Pros: Ran at rated speeds with 0 errors or problems of mention. Worked the second it was plugged in have had no issues a month later.
Cons: DDR3 Ram price.
Pros: Fantastic little mobo lots of little features, paired it with an a10-7850k. Plug in placement is great and the parts seem to be high quality. Every feature worked with 0 issues and I couldn't find anything to complain about. The price may seem high but what you get in such a small factor is great.
Cons: I/O plate placement seemed a little off when paired in a lian-li q25b itx case.
Pros: For the amount of air these move and how quiet they are blew(pun intended) my other fans away. These 140mm fans fit in 120mm fan slots giving you more options for mounting. Very solid feeling compared to cheaper fans. The sleeves on the cables look great and match white/black cases perfect.
Cons: The power cables could be slightly longer.
Overall Review: If any other fan I have fails it will be replaced with this Phantek 140.
Pros: Cools extremely well I use it as my top card in a crossfire setup and it out cools my sapphire 7950 vapor x with better temps and the vrms dont overheat. Overclocks great and I've never had problems with any Asus card.
Cons: Might be a little big for smaller computer cases.
Pros: Excellent case all the fans worked nothing broken. Very nice airflow, lot's of mounting options, cable management was a snap, lot's of room to work and last but not least really liked the look of the case.
Cons: Front air filter could be easier access for cleaning and the pins on the drive trays pop out very easy when installing a drive.
Pros: Everything about the card is a pro.
It's cool, quite, looks fantastic and you can run max AA without killing the cards like the Nvidia line.
The card has been running flawless no acting up or errors you'll be happy running this worry free on the latest drivers.
Very happy with this card hope sapphire carries this quality well into the future.
Cons: Can't really think of any con's wish it came with a different game but that is not even really a complaint.
Pros: Fans flow a decent amount of air and cooled down my pc. Very nice electric blue color.
Cons: With the fans installed and first run made a loose plastic grinding noise like a hamster wheel. The sound did fade after a few hours of running and cannot be heard anymore.
Pros: Nice looking, black paint, sturdy doesn't flex at all, fit everything with room to spare. Came with a ton of screws for mounting.
Cons: Top fan came DOA which I received a replacement that worked. So it's not a huge con but I would have liked to have all the fans working. Cable management can be a little rough.
Overall Review: Wasn't satisfied to enough to warrant staying with Antec products and will try others in the future for comparison.
Pros: Does everything it is advertised to do.
Worked and fit an antec illusion 300 case without issues.
Paired well with a fx-4100cpu/ 6950gpu.
Cons: Had some fitment issues with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.
Pros: Placed it in the case connected the cables it worked, zero issues.
Cons: The Price
Pros: Fast card running BF3 on ultra settings 1080p.
Blue matches the rest of the computer.
Pros: Very nice blue color and sturdy ram. Fit in booted up no problems so far.
Pros: Product worked as advertised very pleased.
