Acer G205HVbd Black 20
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Cheap, mediocre display 12/30/2013

This review is from: Acer G205HVbd Black 20" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 200 cd/m2 ACM 5,000:1 (700:1)

Pros: Excellent price for the size. Aggressive look of Acer's "Predator"-era bezels and stands.

Cons: Stand is too short and offers limited range of motion. Screen adjustment options are minimal. Colors are arguably the worst of my stable of monitors, everything is washed out. Terrible viewing angles.

Other Thoughts: I had two of these set up in my development environment; that only lasted a couple weeks until I couldn't stand it anymore. Swapped the primary monitor for a much nicer 21.5" Dell and have since found this adequate for a lightly-used secondary screen.

Corsair Force Series 3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good performance as Windows 7 Pro OS drive, no issues with reliability or data loss in over two years. Until recently, used daily as the OS and frequent applications drive in my development machine.

Cons: Price per GB was high when purchased; for the same price over Thanksgiving weekend this year I bought a 240GB Intel 530 SSD for my gaming machine. Such is the life of the early adopter!

Other Thoughts: Despite warnings in some corners of the internet (and on this site), I have had absolutely zero issues with this SSD. Corsair products on the whole have been very good purchases over the years!

XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent air cooling solution 12/30/2013

This review is from: XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible

Pros: Has kept temps low on overclocked Phenom II X4 40 and FX-8350. Nice construction for a low price. Excellent hardware for securing cooler to motherboard; vastly superior for AM3/AM3+ compared to more frequently seen clip format. Zero issues with fan after constant use.

Cons: The only rebate I have never received was for this item; I tried following up with Xigmatek multiple times and never received a reply. Price was low enough before rebate that this was not a major concern.

Other Thoughts: WIsh the rebate turned out to be legit, but this was still a great purchase. Still doing daily duty on the FX-8350 in my development machine.
