LG 25UM56-P 25” Class 21:9 UltraWide IPS Gaming Monitor 5ms 2560 x 1080 5ms GTG 60Hz 5,000,000:1 Contrast Ratio with Black Stabilizer and Dynamic Action Link, SRGB Over 99% and 4-Screen Split

Pros: 21:9 monitor. Paid 150 and would have to say it so far has been worth it. Image quality is much better than my last monitor.

Cons: Very bright even at lowest settings. 21:9 support is also abysmal which I have found out the hard way. 16:9 is by far the resolution most compatible with everything

Other Thoughts: No points taken off for my cons as neither has anything to do with the monitor itself. I have a bit of a light sensitivity and almost always have my monitors down at the lowest brightness possible. 21:9 support for games, videos, etc is also not something that the manufacturer should have to bake in. This more reflects upon developers of said programs, content creators, etc

ASUS Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: For the time that I owned this board (about one year) it had no issues. Very reliable and only started to develop issues booting back up until it would no longer boot about a year in. Before that, I had no issues with the board day-to-day unlike my current board

Cons: Board eventually failed to boot

Corsair Obsidian Series 250D (CC-9011047-WW) Black Aluminum / Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very good looking case and doesn't take up a bunch of space. I also love that the intakes on the case all have filters

Cons: It may be just by combination of case and motherboard, but due to such tight clearances between my motherboard and 240mm radiator mounted on the side, the only way to put in my CPU power cable was to rip off the clip that holds it in place.

It's a double-edged sword but at least the 2.5 inch drives had hot-swappable connectors like the 3.5 inch bays in the left chamber on the Carbide Air 540, my last case. Space behind the bays is extremely tight but doable

Other Thoughts: If I had to offer one improvement on this case, it would be to move the side brackets for an up-to-240mm radiator+fans further out 2-3mm if possible and also back 2mm as well. I'm still running the stock fan instead of a 200mm fan as the clearance between my radiator and the screws to hold in the front fan does not allow for a 200mm fan due to the screw then trying to occupy space taken up by the radiator
