ASUS MG279Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Gorgeous display, so sharp and clear my old monitor looks awful next to it. The adjustable stand is great, it has all the inputs you could hope for on the on screen display works well.

Cons: Like all modern monitors it's *really* bright. In a brightly lit office or home it's perfect. In a dark room it can be a little overwhelming, even turning the brightness down.

Other Thoughts: This monitor really has it all. 27" is the perfect size for the 2560x1440 resolution. 144hz refresh rate as well as the IPS display and freesync round out the whole thing nicely. The only conceivable thing it's missing is GSync but unless you a hardcore CSGO gamer and use only nVidia video cards it's really not that big a deal.

Dell S2415H Black 23.8
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good for the price

Cons: No black at all, only dark grey.
Unless you crank up the brightness to blinding level the colors look grey and washed out.

Other Thoughts: I have this monitor next to my almost 10 year old TN display (Dell 2208wfp). I expected to be blown away by the IPS panel but instead I was extremely disappointed to find this new monitor just isn't as good. I spent well over an hour adjusting settings and calibrating and still wasn't able to get it to look at good as my old screen.

If you are using this in a brightly lit office and can have the brightness cranked up to 100% then you should be happy with this product. If you are using this on a home computer and don't want to have this monitor so bright you can work on your tan then prepared for a very grey experience.

Zotac ZT-60207-20L GeForce GT 640 Graphic Card - 900 MHz Core - 2 GB GDDR3 SDRAM - PCI Express 3.0 x16
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Silent, worked well for a while

Cons: First off, the heat sink is HUGE and goes down to the MB so even a MB/Case that can fit a huge 10 inch long card might not fit this card. I had to bend up the fins because they were hitting my the RAM slots on my MB.

This card worked for a month, then as I was using it (doing nothing intensive at all) my screens just went dark. I rebooted and nothing would come up. Pulled out the video card (was not even slightly warm) and used onboard video and everything worked great.

Other Thoughts: Couldn't return it since I had to bend the fins to fit my MB
