SAMSUNG S27A850D Matt Black 27
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 1440p, Efficient power use, Precise color reproduction.

When I first purchased this monitor, I was worried if I would have been better off going with a triple-1080p setup for immersive gaming and multitasking oriented programming and CAD/CAM work - but this monitor has proved I had the right idea running this single panel. Color reproduction and look is great, 27" monitors are the perfect size for sustained use at a desk with a single display (or smaller secondary displays used in conjunction with), and this monitor still works brilliantly for watching movies from across the room.

Cons: Sometimes the ECO sensor gets confused with various light conditions; the menu options to nudge the brightness up quickly isn't that convenient.
1440p is still taxing on most GPU setups (but still more forgiving than 4k)

Other Thoughts: DisplayPort is THE way to go for signal input - DVI will work as well, but the DisplayPort cable is simpler, smaller, and more future-proof in that regard.

At this point, I feel like 1440p is still preferable to 4k, since most applications don't do a great job of scaling beyond 1080p, so 1440p works well with a high end large size 27" display like this provided you're not using it from too far away, but even in this size a proper 4k (or Apply retina 5k) display becomes really picky about being able to see icons properly especially with productivity applications and basic OS features. I recommend waiting until Windows 10 and the updates to programs like Office 365/Photoshop to jump to 4k, and with displays like this one at such a good price, this is something worth looking into until 4k becomes more commonplace to be better supported by software.

Creative Inspire T10 2.0 Desktop Speakers

5 out of 5 eggs Impressive Bass for this size package 02/16/2014

This review is from: Creative Inspire T10 2.0 Desktop Speakers

Pros: Very impressive low and mid range performance for this size package

Cons: Top end isn't ideally crisp, still fairly expensive

Other Thoughts: If you don't have space for a subwoofer, but care about having something that counts as deep rich bass performance for a desk system, these are absolutely worth the look. There are cheaper 2.1 systems that can do better, but in this format these are unbeatable.

Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Compatible with ATX (not included) Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: On a recommendation, I looked at this case, and even chose it over one with some nicer looking features - I'm glad I did.

Fantastic cable management, good stock fans, very functional top slot and USB 3.0 headers on the front - most importantly excellent airflow with GTX580 and 2600k.
It's quiet, and the rubber insulating grommets do their job quite well.

Cons: Side cable routing for smaller hard drives isn't ideal - some more space would make the hot-swappable locations actually more viable, and involve not breaking flimsy SATA connectors.
HDD/Background activity light is blindingly bright - white just isn't the right color for this, and it illuminates my entire apartment like a lighthouse.

Other Thoughts: I really wish there were options for LED colors to choose - the grey case is beautiful, but being able to choose it with lights that match the hardware (red, blue) instead of white would be very nice, and command a premium in price: one I'd consider to be worth it.
It's not quite worth it to me to swap out fan LEDs, but with a case design this solid, I think it's worth a look.

I prefer the motherboard fan control to the three-level built in, but it's a nice feature.
