Great monitor at a great price.
Pros: Vivid color and deep blacks. Great form factor. Speakers are a good bonus (even if they aren’t that great).
Cons: A single stuck red pixel - luckily red blends in on most screens. Generally companies to not return/replace unless there are more stuck pixels so I have no tried. It doesn’t bother me. Speakers are tinny and have low overall volume, but it’s a nice feature that I don’t feel like I paid extra for.
Overall Review: This is a great second monitor. My primary monitor is a 144Hz TN panel for gaming, but I would feel comfortable using this Acer as a primary even at 75Hz. The color (as an IPS monitor) is much richer.
Awesome video card, no whine.
Pros: The lights on this one are subtle. Fan noise even under load is minimal. Performing great, most games well over 100FPS at max settings (except Tarkov, because Tarkov).
Overall Review: This if my first current video card in a long time. My goal was to be able to run all current titles at Ultra settings at 1440p, and this card does not disappoint. I’m able to run a game on one monitor with these settings while watching YouTube/Twitch on the second monitor with no hiccups or delays. I’m running games at 144Hz on a GSync primary monitor.
Good quality RAM, works as expected
Overall Review: The first pair of DIMMs I received showed errors on one stick — I checked when the PC had trouble posting every once in a while. I ordered a replacement (because the RMA process would’ve taken longer) and tested all sticks individually and paired using memtest86. The single stick still showed errors, so I returned it. This is not uncommon for RAM and I don’t find it specific to OLOy. I have had no problems since.
