Most Favorable Review

Almost a 5 Star Monitor

ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QR 25" (24.5" Viewable) Gaming Monitor, 1080P Full HD, 165Hz (Supports 144Hz), 1ms, Extreme Low Motion Blur, G-SYNC Compatible ready, Eye Care, 2 x HDMI DisplayPort, Shadow Boost,
ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QR 25" (24.5" Viewable) Gaming Monitor, 1080P Full HD, 165Hz (Supports 144Hz), 1ms, Extreme Low Motion Blur, G-SYNC Compatible ready, Eye Care, 2 x HDMI DisplayPort, Shadow Boost,

Pros: It looks amazing, G-Sync works super well, settings and controls are straight forward and easy to use, and it has a killer stand that allows for a full range of positioning options.

Cons: The speaker is a joke. It sounds like a mono speaker, overdriven to the max. The only audio seems to be the right side of a stereo channel. That said, think of this as 1/10 of a star removal, as the other features of this monitor far outshine this one tiny drawback.

Overall Review: I would totally recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a great gaming monitor with G-Sync.

A PITA

AMD Xbox Game Pass Gift
AMD Xbox Game Pass Gift

Pros: It was free

Cons: It was a pain in the posterior to get this to work, and XBox live for PC is not very good.

Overall Review: Prices and download sizes are not comparable to other distribution platforms. I uninstalled after a brief trial run. Thanks AMD, but maybe next time you want to give out party favors, you could pick something a little better

When you must

Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, DVD - OEM
Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, DVD - OEM

Pros: It worked. The key wasn't already used.

Cons: It's an evil that must exist (for now).

Overall Review: If I didn't have software that required Windows, I wouldn't use it. The disc wasn't scratched and the key worked without a hitch. It is painful to pay so much money for something so hopelessly broken that you have to have.

Excellent keyboard

G.SKILL KM360 Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard - Black

Pros: Just about the cheapest mechanical keyboard I could find. Love MX Reds. Makes writing much smoother. Doesn't have RGB backlighting, just white. Keycaps are solid.

Cons: The gray top plate is a bit underwhelming.

Overall Review: This is exactly the keyboard I wanted and the price was excellent. I love how compact it is, while keeping a full size key set. There is no wasted space here. It is heavy enough to not move around while banging away on it. The adjustable lighting is great and doesn't have the harshness that some white LEDs have. I might be in love with this keyboard.

Pros: Fast. Really fast. Did I mention how fast it is?

Cons: Didn't come with a fancy case sticker. LOL

Overall Review: This is an excellent value for money. It is a fast, stable little drive that just performs. System boots in 10 seconds. GIMP loads in 5 seconds.

Does what it says

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do.

Cons: Looks cheap.

Overall Review: Worked well in a new build, no errors, no glitches.
