Most Favorable Review

Great price (better with that coupon code!)

ASUS VS248H-P 24" 1920 x 1080 Full HD VGA DVI HDMI Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free LED Backlit LCD Monitor

Pros: 24 inches of widescreen goodness. Crisp rendering. Bright and vibrant.

Cons: The base is cheesy and somewhat restrictive, but not a huge deal. The controls are also awkward (under the lip of the bezel) and, as this display is pretty lightweight, you have to steady the top of the display with one hand while pushing the buttons on the bottom. But once they're set, it's not really an issue I guess.

Overall Review: IMPORTANT! For some reason the compare charts and details list this display as not having DVI.. even though the product photos clearly show the connection. After ordering this I panicked and ended up buying two unneeded DVI->HDMI adapters. The details listing for this product is incorrect, and this display does in fact use DVI, HDMI and dSub connections.

Fantastic case

Pros: Huge and quiet cooling system keeps my completely packed case and components very comfortable. This case is very nice to look at and provides just TONS of room to hide and route all your wires/cables.

Cons: About that I/O panel above the top drivebay.. see other thoughts

Overall Review: The unshielded backside of the I/O panel on the top-front of the case is stupid. In order to make use of the top drivebay with an optical drive, without risking shorting out the system, I ended up covering the entire metal backside of that control panel with electrical tape, then fashion a piece of cardboard to precisely cover the tape and panel. This provides a safe buffer between the optical drive and the poorly thought out control panel. Everything is excellent beyond that oversight.

1 of 4 doa, but after RMA all is good.

Pros: The RAM performs as it should. Recognized all 16GB from my four installed sticks. Photoshop is happy.

Cons: 25% chance of tears; one stick out of four arrived dead, but Newegg took care of me and replaced it via nextday shipping.
