Was nervous

Pros: The stats are true to form and it has performed admirably so far. I bought 3 for eyefinity and the bezel is tiny compared to many monitors. What turned me away from the Samsungs are their poor stats, bezel or no. Also, these are wicked light.

Cons: My crossfire 6950s are running hot running these in eyefinity at full. By hot, I mean 88 degrees each on BF3 and Crysis benchmarking. Understand, however, that this may be a cooling issue and concerns the cards, definitely not the monitors.

Overall Review: I would try to buy these elsewhere. I did not get any dead pixels, but unlike other stores, the pixel policy here (which I'm fairly certain is against contract law and without remedy) is what made me nervous buying these. However, if a sale comes up, it may be worth the risk. Do keep in mind, Newegg isn't necessarily the cheapest anymore...

Surprisingly Amazing

Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad Y560 (0646-5LU) Intel Core i5 1st Gen 480M (2.66GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Incredible machine. I've stressed the hell out of it before school starts to make sure it will hold up, being that I got the y560p i7 and it had hardware failure (it happens). This this plays Rift at full, no probs on TF2, and will run multiple apps with no problem.

Cons: The ONLY bottleneck is the super slow HDD. It's too bad the power to the HDD is 4pin so I can't run a SSD but will be tossing in a 10000 or 15000 HDD soon. The fresh install will make it sublime I'm sure.

Overall Review: Why spend so much money to make Tron Legacy a decent movie, but flaunt the worst part about the graphics engineered in young Flynn's face?
