ASUS VG248QE Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Barely acceptable out of the box, failed after less than a year 09/29/2015

This review is from: ASUS VG248QE Black 24" Gaming Monitor, 144 Hz 1ms (GTG), 3D Monitor, Height & pivot adjustable, 350 cd/m2, Built-in Speakers

Pros: 144 Hz, not very expensive

Cons: Began going blank, glitching after 6 months. Probably a capacitor issue. The image quality was so bad out of the box I should have returned it immediately just for that. 144Hz is overrated anyway.

Other Thoughts: After (painstakingly) adjusting all of the monitor's settings and some on my computer I got the quality barely acceptable. Not much use for gaming when it goes black for 15 seconds at a time though. I should have bought a nice 60Hz IPS.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Pretty much required upgrade from stock 10/20/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Keeps my i7-3770k from bluescreening under any amount of stress.

Cons: Will not support any overclocking with my processor. It's pretty much at its limit in room temperature air, CPU temps at 70ish C. Bad things start happening at 75C.

Other Thoughts: Without this, I wouldn't be able to max out my processor for any length of time. It's essential for any CPU-limited application I use.

Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Brown Switches
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Major flaws, but it does work. 06/13/2014

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Brown Switches

Pros: Solid construction, not as loud as some mechanical keyboards. Looks nice. It works, which is the only reason I give it any eggs.

Cons: LEDs started dying not long after I got it. 5 are completely dead and maybe a dozen more are dimming. That's just not acceptable in a $100+ keyboard. It's either bad quality control or bad design. The lighting is badly done to begin with, for example the numbers are dim but the symbols above them on the same keys are bright.

Other Thoughts: The USB cable is stupidly over engineered. It looks like it's designed to run 200' alongside a power main, not 4 feet across my desk. It's 1/4" thick and very stiff. If you put force on it near the plug it would happily pry the USB jack off the motherboard. I would be afraid to use it with a laptop.

It's clearly hobbyist grade, flashy and feature heavy but low quality and badly designed.
