ViewSonic XG2703-GS 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Was the perfect monitor! Bright rich colors. Text and graphics were tremendous. Games played like I have never seen! No dead short I won the panel lottery! :-)

Was instantly recognized - only had to turn down the brightness a bit. My games looked fantastic and routine things like web browsing and MS Word were extremely crisp and easier to read. I was very happy with the purchase!

Cons: Then the bad...Next day, turned it on, booted up AOK. Did a few things with no problems and then BAM...blank screen with the message "No Signal."

Switched out the DP cable for the HDMI...still no signal. Thought great, my video card died? But hooked up my previous monitor and it works perfectly.

Tried the ViewSonic again with both types of cables...same results. :-( It appears that something inside the unit decided it had enough fun and games. This is so disappointing. My wonderful Christmas present to myself (which arrived in 24hours after I ordered it) has to now be stuffed back inside its box and returned.

This was my first ViewSonic product. I know things break and fail, especially electronic items, but ViewSonic, only 24 hours?

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: An update to my previous review...

Have had the card for a week now it is incredible. No Coil Whine as others reported. Delivers super performance and I am totally happy.


Cons: What I now see is that the backplate is being offered for free not so long after I bought it. While I applaud EVGA and/or New Egg for giving people this excellent perk, I cannot help but feel I bought mine too soon.

Other Thoughts: For those thinking about buying this card...DO IT while the backplate is free! You will not regret it :-)

EVGA GTX 970 SSC Backplate ACX 2.0+ Model 100-BP-3973-B9

5 out of 5 eggs A Nice Addition 04/20/2015

This review is from: EVGA GTX 970 SSC Backplate ACX 2.0+ Model 100-BP-3973-B9

Pros: Many folks complain that for the money the video card costs, the backplate should already be included. I do not disagree with that thought.

However, with the rebate from the card and the sale price for the backplate, it works out to basically free.

The plate went on with no problems, but be sure to have a small/micro sized Phillips head driver to work the screws.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It makes the card look even better and helps reduce the temperature - a win/win !
