ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The price is ok..

Cons: I have found 3+ dead/stuck pixels in the first 2 days of use.. So I am not happy with this monitor at all. At first when I started it up it was amazing but once I started doing Photo Editing I noticed one purple pixel, then another.. Then a hour after that another one! I thought these Panels where inspected before being sent out.

Other Thoughts: If you have the extra money then go with something else. I am now depressed that I have to deal with returning this monitor. My grandson is also very sad because he was going to get my old monitor.

ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I just got this a few hours ago. But from what I've seen so far it's just flat out amazing!

I will write a fallow up review but from a few hours of playing ArcheAge and CS:GO all I can say is I had no idea what I've been missing out on.

I upgraded from a 23" TN panel that I've had for years.

Just looking at websites is amazing.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: Amazing. I will fallow up on the coming days.

GIGABYTE Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 GV-R929OC-4GD 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Now that I have owned this card for almost half a year. I will have to declare that it is the best of the best. I had done a good two month's of reading reviews, looking at benchmarks watching reviews and comparing the components used in this Gigabyte 290 OC Edition. That was after I had made sure AMD had the superior GPU.

You want to build on a good foundation and that's what Gigabyte has done. With there Ultra Durable VGA and the high end 8 digital power phase along with two phases for the memory alone.

High end is not about pretty lights on a GPU or glowing fans. Gigabyte knows this and didn't waste money putting lights and unneeded junk on there GPU. Instead Gigabyte made a true two slot 450 watt cooling system.

And it works great. Wind Force 3 is amazingly silent yet my GPU never hits above 72c and that's the hottest I can get it. When playing Battlefield 4 64 man and at 1080p using DX11 my fps is a steady 87fps I can get more with mantle but I have no need to use it yet.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My system specs, (for reference)

Gigabyte Z87X-D3H-CF
8GB Kingston HyperX Blu Ram
i5 4670k at 4Ghz (Summer OC normal is 4.4Ghz)
Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212
Kingston HyperX 3k 120GB SSD (OS/MMO that I'm playing at the time)
Western Digital Black 1TB HDD (Games/Files/Ect)
Gigabyte R9 290 OC Edition
XFX XTR 750 Fully Modular PSU
Antec 900 (front fans medium/top fan low/rear fan medium/side fan slot just has a dust filter)

About 6 months ago I upgraded from a core 2 quad 4gb ddr2 and XFX AMD HD 6950 2GB I bought the GPU a month later and I'm happy I did. The 290 is one hell of a GPU.
