SPARKLE GeForce GTX 680 700021 (CALIBRE -- GTX680) 2GB 256-Bit Video Card
  • Verified Owner

4 out of 5 eggs Almost perfect Sparkle 04/23/2013

This review is from: SPARKLE GeForce GTX 680 700021 (CALIBRE -- GTX680) 2GB 256-Bit Video Card

Pros: Very cool and quiet, as another reviewer said the boost clock can get as high as 1201MHz. The price at the time of purchase was a steal.

Cons: Build quality is slightly lacking, the black finish on the heat sink fins was scratched slightly. As this is just cosmetic and doesn't affect performance it wasn't a big deal for me.

A washer/spacer was missing on that back side of the heatsink, causing the rear third fan to be too close and not spin. I was able to fix this by getting an size 0 philips screw and slightly move up the sink in a higher position so the fan could move freely and put less strain on the pcb. I'll buy myself a space so the heatsink will be proper but this is honestly something QC could had spotted and corrected.

ASUS VS229H-P Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great colors and brightness levels and inputs, VESA compatible and comes with decent stand. You can see the difference from TN right away and even more so if the TN used CCFL back lighting.

Menu navigation buttons are real buttons not touch sensitive

Very affordable at the time of purchase ($150 + free 2day shipping)

No ghosting or lag.

Stays cool.

Cons: My monitor also suffered from back light bleed at the lower left corner, but after a few days it's not noticeable unless absolutely looking for it and viewing something with black or very dark colors. I'm quiet glad I didn't go through with the RMA process.

Something tells me it's the bezel causing the bleeding but I don't feel like voiding warranties right now.

Until I calibrated the monitor, blacks had a slight maroon tint to them. Though this isn't really isn't a con as all monitors should/need to be calibrated for the most accurate display possible.

The lack of DisplayPort, something that all monitors made today should have now but instead a VGA port is used. If you're seriously STILL use VGA you're making waste of this good monitor. VGA needs to die quickly.

Menu buttons are underneath of the of the display, not the front.

Other Thoughts: Seeing the color improvement is convincing me to replace my other TN monitor, but I plan to buy a "real" IPS panel like Dell's Ultrasharp.
