Mediasonic HF2-SU3S2 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy to set-up
Quick plug and play with JBOD
Stable Work Horse

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I've been running one of these units with four 2TB drives installed 24/7 for over a year now and I've never had an issue. I use it for media storage and play back on my network and can watch a movie in the living room, a TV show in my office and music in the bedrooms, all at the same time without so much as a stutter. If you want a great, easy and affordable mass storage option this is the way to go.

I'm tempted to pick up a new 4TB drive to see if it will work in this unit. If I do I'll update the results here.

Pros: I bought this kit last year for my personal system and it's run flawlessly ever since. Very easy to overclock and very stable.

Cons: The only con here is the price, this 6GB kit is more expensive than a lot of 12GB kits... Then again, you do get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I build PCs for a living and tend to focus on gaming systems so I have quite a bit of build experience with many different brands and G-Skill is my favorite. I've been using G-Skill for about 5 years now and they have never failed to impress. Always fast, always stable and I've yet to have a G-Skill module fail to overclock... or fail in general.

My personal PCs:


CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 PSU
Intel i-7 950@4.2GHz
ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58
6GB G-Skill PI series DDR3 1600
G.SKILL Phoenix Pro Series 60GB SSD
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB HDD
Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB HDD

Home Theater PC: (old gaming rig)

Antec P180 Tower

Asus Maximus 2
Intel Core2Duo E8400
4GB G-Skill DDR2
eVGA GTX 460
Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB
4x Western Digital Caviar Green AV HDD

Booth PCs use nVidia's audio out through the HDMI port to home theater receivers.

Acer HN274Hbmiiid Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I've only had this monitor up and running for a few hours but so far this is a beautiful monitor, even in 2D mode. The colors are crisp, sharp and quite accurate out of the box. The 3D on this thing is amazing, I've only noticed ghosting on one 3D image (one of the test pictures nVIDIA displays after setting up 3D vision) but haven't noticed any in any games... yet. The touch sensitive buttons are a pretty cool as well. The monitor was quite easy to set up out of the box, the mount screws on quite nicely without the need for any hassling and the inputs are easy to get to.

If you're looking for a new monitor and are interested in gaming in 3D I highly recommend the Acer HN274H.

Cons: The price I guess, though it is reasonable considering what you get and the quality of the monitor.

Other Thoughts: I never thought I would be this impressed by a monitor with a TN panel, LED or otherwise. This puts all the other monitors/TVs I've used as a display over the years to shame except for the 3D TV in my living room but being able to sit so close to the monitor (unlike the TV) the 3D really "pops" more on this display.
