Dynomite!

Acer HN274HBBmiiid 27" 1920 x 1080 120 Hz D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor
Acer HN274HBBmiiid 27" 1920 x 1080 120 Hz D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor

Pros: The sale price. I just got this for 299. I bought one last year for over 500. This is a steal at this price. I use this 120Hz monitor for gaming. I have it sitting next to a 24" Asus @ 144Hz and I prefer the picture on the Acer.

Cons: With my Win 8 setup, it is a little slow on resume. System kicks on before the monitor.

Overall Review: For gaming, a 120Hz or 144Hz can't be beat as long as you have the video card to drive them. This monitor is a BF4 Beast that pairs well with a 290X or 780. This is the second one I have purchased.

Most Critical Review

Almost

ARK SR-8100BK Black Pedestal Server Case 4 External 5.25" Drive Bays
ARK SR-8100BK Black Pedestal Server Case 4 External 5.25" Drive Bays

Pros: The case itself seemed sturdy and HUGE.

Cons: The front panel door was attached by two tiny plastic nubs and the top and bottom the door used as hinges. Mine was broken when I opened the box. so I returned it to NewEgg

Overall Review: I almost kept the case becase it wasn't so bad without the front cover and the rest of it seemed like high quality. It is really big.

Quality Product

SilverStone All Black Sleeved 1-to-2 Sleeved PWM Fan Splitter Cable (CPF01)
SilverStone All Black Sleeved 1-to-2 Sleeved PWM Fan Splitter Cable (CPF01)

Pros: It works

Cons: None

Overall Review: I bought 2 and used then with a push pull fan configuration modifications on a Corsair h60 and EVGA 2080ti Hybrid. One off the motherboard, one off the GPU. Both work fine.

Fail after 8 months

Fractal Design Ion+ 760P 80 PLUS Platinum Certified 760W Full Modular Compact ATX Power Supply with UltraFlex Cables
Fractal Design Ion+ 760P 80 PLUS Platinum Certified 760W Full Modular Compact ATX Power Supply with UltraFlex Cables

Pros: Fit into a NZXT 200i case. Plenty of power for a modewrn system. Quiet and cool operation. Attractive design. I was using this in a high drain system with a i9-9900k and RTX 2080ti. Everything worked perfectly for 8 months. Then it didn't

Cons: Fail after 8 months. Started to get random reboots.

Overall Review: I read a lot of reviews before I paid a premium price for this premium power supply. I thought I chose wisely despite not having any experience with the fractal brand. I was wrong. Now I have to pull my whole system apart to swap out the power supply. I will not buy another fractal power supply.

Best Vape Battery Recharger

Nitecore Intellicharge i4 Charger 18650 1850014500 18350 16340 18700 AAA AA Battery
Nitecore Intellicharge i4 Charger 18650 1850014500 18350 16340 18700 AAA AA Battery

Pros: FAST! I had the $5.99 trickle charger that took 12 hours to recharge my 18500 1800mAh batteries, this does it in 2 hours. This accepts a wide range of rechargeable batteries including thin AA and thick 18650's.

Cons: The springs are a little stiff, but the unit works great. Made in China, but what isn't?

Overall Review: 4 independent charging bays. Best charger I found for my ecig batteries.

The First G-SYNC

ASUS VG248QE 24" Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms (GTG) 144Hz DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort Built-in Speakers Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Backlit LED NVIDIA 3D Gaming Monitor
ASUS VG248QE 24" Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms (GTG) 144Hz DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort Built-in Speakers Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Backlit LED NVIDIA 3D Gaming Monitor

Pros: This was a great performing monitor right out of the box. The color scheme was off though, the yellows and greens looked neon. This was actually a neat feature in games and allowed you to see opponents quickly. This is the monitor that the G-SYNC kit by NVIDIA is sold for.

Cons: Installing the separately sold G-SYNC kit is not for the faint of heart.

Overall Review: I bought the G-SYNC upgrade kit from NVIDIA and installed it on this monitor. I am still using it a year later over a larger 27" 144Mhz monitor I also own. The installation was a little tricky. I crushed the bezel a little taking it apart. I also could not get the front connector ribbon into the motherboard correctly and wound up shearing the connector right off the motherboard leaving it hanging by strings. Nevertheless, it works fine. I don't have a functional on off switch, but it is default on always anyway. G-SYNC is awesome and I'm never going back.
