5 out of 5 eggs Excellent replacement for those who have been waiting to long for a replacement for the 4870 series. 03/30/2012

This review is from: PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 DirectX 11 AX7950 3GBD5-2DH 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Excellent performance in most games out there, including Crysis, COD series, BF3, and many others. Also runs Mass Effect 3 maxed out at 1680x1050 resolution. Currently waiting for a nice 3view 2560 x 1440 IPS screen to really push this card to its limit.

High amount of onboard ram will keep this card competitive in either high screen resolutions or high texture resolutions. Highly recommend downloading AMD's latest catalyst 12.3 drivers before installing the card.

Cons: While installing the drivers, you may have an issue where your screen blacks out, and does not come back on. Let the install process run its course, then press the Windows key, then the right arrow two times. Finally tap the up arrow, and hit enter. This will be the restart option, at least if your OS is Windows 7. Your system should reboot ok, with the new driver installed. I'm currently not sure if this is a problem with the graphics card's bios or with AMD's install routines, but it is a new product, so I won't ding them an egg for that, since I was able to work around the problem.

Other Thoughts: System specs are as follows:

Intel Core i5 2500k oc'd 4.2ghz
Corsair A70 HSF
G-Skill Ripjaws X 4 x 4GB DDR3 1600
Asrock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 Bios 1.30
Seagate 7200.11 1.5TB HDD
2 x WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD
The above GPU
Onboard Realtek sound
Silverstone OP-1000 1KW PSU
Thermaltake A60
2 x LG DVD/RW drives

P3 Kill A Watt Electricity Load Meter and Monitor

5 out of 5 eggs Does exactly what I needed it for. 09/04/2008

This review is from: P3 Kill A Watt Electricity Load Meter and Monitor

Pros: Excellent tool to measure Amperage, Wattage, Frequency, and KW/h. I could actually see the difference between my laptop being at full load, and then coming down to idle. Now I just have to find a 10-12 gauge power extension, to plug this in and measure my desktops load and idle usage.

Cons: There is a slight delay in measurements, of about 1-2 seconds, but it's not that big of a deal. When plugged in, if without an extension, it does take up two outlets on wall plates, and surge suppressing strips, so you may need an extension to nullify this.

Other Thoughts: It's a cool gadget to have around, and find out what's guzzling all the electricity in the house.

SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent replacement for an aging CRT 10/25/2007

This review is from: SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22" 2 ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1(DC 3000:1)

Pros: + Excellent Colors once calibrated properly (Blows my 17in Sylvania out of the water).

+ Fast response time, no ghosting in any of the fast paced and slow paced games that I've tested with.

+ High resolution and display area is great for gaming, and working on two documents at a time.

Cons: - The screen does not tilt, it only swivels on it's turntable base.

- As others have mentioned, poor calibration out of box (Too bright, not enough contrast)-though once properly calibrated, colors come out rich, with good contrast.

- Seems the vertical viewing angle is rather low (ie. if viewing the screen from above a certain point, it gets a blue tint).

- When screen is dark, yet not off, there is a bit of backlight bleed on lower center of screen.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's an excellent replacement for middle resolution CRTs. For those that are used to higher resolutions, check out the bigger sibling, the 24 inch 245BW, for about 150 bucks more.

Also, UPS delivered it in one piece. will continue to be my #1 choice for computer related purchases for some time to come.
