Pixxo Model CH-206-15 5 ft.Black High Speed HDMI® Cable M-M  with Ethernet & Gold Plated Connector M-M, Support major 3D video gaming and 3D home theater applications
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good quality cable for the price.

Cons: Does not support ARC on my system. It supports 3D, but not ARC. Don't make the mistake I did if you want ARC support. Make sure the cable is v 1.4.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) DirectX 11 ZT-50401-10L 1GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great price to performance ratio.

Cons: Fan rattles.

I just spend a small fortune at newegg buying a fanless power supply and SSDs to quiet my system. But the fan on this card makes crunching clicking sounds that are by far the loudest offender in my system. It sounds somewhat like a loud hard drive that is constantly accessing data.

The fan doesn't make much of the typical fan "white noise" or whine, it just clicks and crunches. Very annoying. Back it goes, unless Zotec is willing to send me a fan.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Superb image quality. Great color, contrast, black levels. Great OSD, stand highly adjustable, good build quality.

Cons: At the default brightness value of 75, this monitor is extremely bright; far too bright for use even under bright ambient light. When the brightness is lowered, the backlight exhibits visible flickering. I cannot look at it for more than a minute without headache, eye strain, and eventually nausea.

The viewing angles are not nearly as wide as higher-end IPS panels, although they are far better than TN.

Other Thoughts: If you are at all sensitive to flicker, steer clear of this monitor, or any other LED-backlit monitor unless you can try it in person first and check for flicker at reasonable brightness settings. Perhaps this is a defective production example, or perhaps it is a bad design. Either way, I cannot use it, so back it goes. Kudos to Newegg for their exemplary service.
