BenQ RL2455HM Black-Red 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Very nice built-in UI
-Tilts good
-Can customize just about everything
-Light weight
-Good color, higher-than-average motion

Cons: -Motion doesn't add up to advertised specs
-Picture quality betrays the price tag

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor thinking it would look closer to an old CRT monitor. Granted I wasn't expecting a miracle, but for as much as I spent I wasn't expecting to be this disappointed. After reading the reviews I thought that the motion would look superb, but what I perceive is too little improvement to anti-ghosting and noticeable but permissible artifacts. And yes I installed/uninstalled the drivers and tried all the settings in both DVI and HDMI. Nothing looked to my liking. I feel like I wasted $200.

If you want my advice, this isn't enough improvement to justify the price tag. Save up a bit more and look for a 144Hz display.

ASUS Laptop X555LB-NS51 Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB HDD FHD NVIDIA GeForce GT 940M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Great battery life, over 4 hours of internet/work use, over 3 hours of steaming video, 1 hour of gaming
-Good keyboard, despite the slight flex
-1080p display is satisfactory
-GDDR3 VRAM allows for high texture quality in games
-Has a DVD-RW drive despite its thin dimensions
-Fingerprint resistant on most surfaces

Cons: -No backlit keyboard, a little disappointing for this MSRP
-Power button placement, I tapped it accidentally twice during gameplay
-No easy way to access internals, no upgrade path, hope nothing goes wrong! (minus one egg for this reason)

Other Thoughts: A steal of a deal if it's on sale, but if the GTX 850M can be had at only $100 more, then you'd be better off with the 850M. Students can take a look if they want the extra gaming kick, and home users can feel comfortable with this thanks to the battery life and smooth styling.

ZOTAC ZT-70301-10P G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs the included Assassin's Creed game at ultra details at almost 40 fps on average in 1080p. Very impressive!

Firestrike demo - 6740 with stock 4670K

Cons: Louder than my old HP Envy dv6 notebook. :P Not really a con I think.

Other Thoughts: I don't have much to offer as far as noise level or size comparison. I built my desktop to accommodate this card.

I wish they would have given a Steam key for AC4 instead of a uPlay key haha oh well.
