Most Favorable Review

Great monitor!

ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) W/Speakers

Pros: Great Image Quality Bright and Clear with nice colors Fairly decent size Easy to control menu High resolution of 1920x1080(1080p) Made by Asus!

Cons: The blacks could be blacker, but this is not exactly a high-end monitor so that is expected.

Overall Review: Overall this monitor is a great buy for PC, PS3 and 360 gamers alike. I can't really think of anything bad for this price.

Most Critical Review

Only displays 1600x1200?

KINGWIN VGAC-01 6 ft. (1800 mm) VGA Male (15pin) to VGA Male (15pin) Cable
KINGWIN VGAC-01 6 ft. (1800 mm) VGA Male (15pin) to VGA Male (15pin) Cable

Pros: Looks like a good quality cable. Long? It's blue and black - my favorite colors!

Cons: The cable seems to only support up to 1600x1200 at least on my Hanns-G 28" with a native resolution of 1920x1200. This basically means that I wasted $21 on this cable since it can't do the resolution I need it to!

Overall Review: A little ticked off about the above ^.

Headphones that sound like $400

Pros: These headphones sound like they are in the $200-400 range. I have AD700x's and these beat those in just about every way. They also beat the HD598's in just about all ways IMO. There's a review that says these are nearly as good as HD600's and I would probably agree. They are the best I've ever worn for comfort. Looks are good imo too. Nice build quality, these shouldn't break, ever unless dropped very hard. They are neutral, good sub/mid bass, highs are pretty clean. IMHO best headphone on the market considering the price. Check zreviews in the future for a review of these and you will see.

Cons: There is nothing bad to say about these.

Monitor settings greyed out?

Pros: I have the MS238H, so I know how this monitor can look.

Cons: I cannot figure out how to get some settings to become available. They are just greyed out with no way to access them. The monitor looks terrible at these default settings. Sharpness, Aspect Control, ASCR, Position, Focus, Saturation, Skin Tone are all NOT available... I know I could make the monitor look 100x better if they were. I never had this issue on my MS238H. Does anyone know why it's doing this?

Ridiculous headphones

Sennheiser HD280 Pro Around the Ear DJ Headphones

Pros: Built VERY sturdy and of high quality material Sound completely blows away normal/average headphones Don't hurt your ears as others do They look great and professional High quality cord

Cons: Honestly...none.

Overall Review: I didn't add this to the Cons area but some people might consider it a con(though it's really not). Before you buy these headphones or any headphones with 64OHMS or over, make sure you have a good soundcard with a headphone amp. Most sound cards don't have amps built in, but good ones do, such as my Auzentech Forte card. You will NOT be getting full sound quality out of these headphones if you don't have an amp.

Perfect cable for anything

Pros: Feels fairly solid Good length, looks good Provides excellent picture quality Cheap for such a long cable!

Cons: None!

Overall Review: This is a really great cable for a cheap price, get it if you need a 10ft.
