Amazing Display

Acer XR341CK bmijpphz Black 34", 21:9 WQHD Curved , 3440 x 1440 LED IPS Monitor, Adaptive-Sync( Free-Sync) with DTS Sound Speakers, USB 3.0, HDMI, MHL, Display Port
Acer XR341CK bmijpphz Black 34", 21:9 WQHD Curved , 3440 x 1440 LED IPS Monitor, Adaptive-Sync( Free-Sync) with DTS Sound Speakers, USB 3.0, HDMI, MHL, Display Port

Pros: -Great size and resolution -Freesync -IPS -Curved -Heavy enough that if needed, it could be used as a blunt weapon to repel a thief, but you don't want to us it for that

Cons: -Pricey, but worth it. -The Backlight bleeding, although I only notice when the screen is very dark and even then, if my attention is not dravn to the corners I do not notice it -The speakers are pointless if you have anything else -The menus are annoying to navigate -A lot of games do not support 21x9 well and many others will only be in 16x9, leaving 2 black bars on the sides, not Acer's fault but a warning.

Overall Review: It is pricey, no doubt about that, but it is amazing to play games and edit video on it. The UPS guy asked me if it was really just a monitor or a whole computer because of the size and weight of the box...

Meh

Enzotech BCC9 - Eight pack of copper heat sinks for BT878 chips
Enzotech BCC9 - Eight pack of copper heat sinks for BT878 chips

Pros: It's copper, I probably can make pennies out of them

Cons: I bought 2 packs, 1 of the 2 packs is not sticking. Yes I cleaned the surface before applying and waited a few hours, but the second I turned my graphic card they fell or slipped.

Overall Review: It took almost 3 weeks to get them, they were supposed to be in stock in Canada, but it was not true since they came from the States.

Wifi problems

ASUS ROG Strix G - 15.6" 300 Hz - AMD Ryzen 9 5000 Series 5900HX (3.30GHz) - AMD Radeon RX 6800M - 16 GB DDR4 - 512 GB PCIe SSD - Windows 11 Home 64-bit - Gaming Laptop (G513QY-DH99-CA )

Pros: -Pretty powerful -Gorgeous display, but I should have gone for the 1440 instead of the 1080p -Can fit a second NVME drive, too bad the original one is kind of slow for an NVME drive -No webcam -Decent amount of USB ports, I would have loved a second USB-C port though

Cons: -Battery life is short, but with great power comes great consumption -Trackpad is bad, get a mouse -Keyboard leds are not great even at 100% and the color is really meh -Wifi adapter stops working when the computer is waken up after sleeping, only way to fix this is to restart the computer, which kinds of defeats the purpose of a laptop, and of course the problem started appearing after the return date limit -RAM and NVME drive are kind of slow

Overall Review: Wait for it to be on sale and if you can afford it get the 1440p panel

128GB worth of thumbs up

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 128GB (4 x 32GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18Q-128GVK

Pros: It works fine on my Ryzen 3900X with a Gigbyte Aorus Ultra motherboard, full 3600MHz Much less expensive than other kits No RGB Packaging is cheap so you don’t pay extra for more cardboard and plastic

Cons: Isn’t compatible with Ryzen RAM calculator

Overall Review: Must write something here

You get what you pay for

Pros: Lightweight Compact Raisable head

Cons: The head does not stay straight if you put a camera on it, no matter how much you tighten the angle screw.

Not worth it

SanDisk 128GB Ultra Fit CZ43 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Up to150MB/s (SDCZ43-128G-G46) [Old Version]

Pros: It is small, I can leave it plugged in my laptop all the time Capacity is great When it wants the transfer speed is amazing

Cons: The transfer speed is really slow 75% of the time, it starts transfering files very fast, but usually after 30 seconds the speed drops to almost nothing and near the end of every transfer there is 30 seconds to 1 minute of nothing happening and some unresponsiveness. It also gets very hot.

Overall Review: Not sure if I will keep it
