Acer G6 Series G236HLBbd  Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's exactly the same as the last Acer monitor I bought from a local store a few months ago, so having identical monitors kind of increases the "cool" value, IMO.
It has a nice look, the screen isn't super glossy so there's no worry about glair/reflection distractions. I also like the onboard menu.

Cons: The stand for these monitors are pretty rigid, so there's not much room for adjustment. I'm not too concerned about this, because I plan on getting a dual monitor mount soon.

Other Thoughts: I found out too late it doesn't have an HDMI input, but that's more my fault than anything.

Pros: Looks cool! Comes with a PC badge/sticker to show off on your machine.

Cons: None, had these for a year now and they're still going strong

Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 Continuous 650W@40°C Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The modular design is a godsend, especially if you're planning on doing any type of cable management inside the case.
The Voltage protection saved my PC a couple of times.
This unit shipped with two PCI cables, even though I only needed one.

Cons: The 24pin and 8 pin MoBo power cords could be a bit longer, but can be easily fixed with extensions. No need to drop an egg over this.

Other Thoughts: I once thought this PSU had gone bad and ordered another one, since the new PSU was doing the same thing once installed I did more investigating. Turns out my MoBo was shorting to the case, and the PSUs Voltage protection was shutting the PC down before any harm could be done.

For anyone with this PSU, if you plug in the PC and it automatically turns on just to shut off 3-5 seconds later, there may be a short happening somewhere in your setup.
