Very good picture. Have had this screen for five years now and am very happy with, clear and pure colors. Uses the screen for both gaming and image editing.

Quite okay computer speakers for simpler sound. A little jarring sound but for SEK 333 totally worth the money! Ideal for listening to radio or games. Gives them a seven because of the cheap price. Very classy and easy to use! benefits + Stylish design + The cable length is enough if you now have them as a table speaker. You can have a speaker on each side if the table is about two feet long. + Duger good for simpler sound, games and radio + Price drawbacks - The sound is nothing for the connoisseur if you are really picky, a bit canned - Short cables if you need longer than 1.5 meters in each direction

Doubtful about this "performance" Used the Samsung Magician on my regular Samsung SSD drives and turned on "Rapid Mode" which speeded up the SSD drives at higher speeds than the EVO 970 can handle! Download Samsung Magician and compare yourself between a Samsung 860 EVO and 970 https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/download/tools/ In addition, the M.2 disks get very hot and are expensive vs SSD. If you drive as usual, ie without Samsung Magician, the EVO 970 will of course be faster than the 860 EVO

Great with space and neat, has been running with Fractal Design ever since R3. The only thing I have to object to is the hard drive panel / cage which should be mounted on the back instead of the front, it was a bit bumpy to remove it and the screws were set like stone! Here's how to mount the panel easiest and get more space and better visibility if you are going to run with RGB components! https://youtu.be/LkyfpSXb6W0?t=961 Here's how to change sides on the hard disk cradle https://youtu.be/WWaxLG2hCgo?t=409 Who uses mechanical hard drives there in 2019 ?? It had a small plate for two disks down at the bottom of the chassis at the same height as the power supply! I changed the supplied fans to the Fractal Design Prism AL-14 RGB 140mm LED https://classic.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?p=5107667 + USB Type-C in the front + Silent + Easy to build in and spacious + Pretty good price + Good for RGB construction - Weighs some - The front door would be good if it could open more, as well as magnets like "lock" Other reviews: vBulletin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-42t7ienNLA Martinet https://youtu.be/jpw6CqMMdw0

Fractal Design Prisma AL-14 RGB PWM 140mm LED

Do a temporary assessment, have only had the fan for one day and have a new motherboard. The installation was simple, connected the fan directly to the motherboard and controls RGB with Asus Aura. On the other hand, I do not manage to get a smooth fan curve, so the fan turns up all the time instead of having a constant flow. The internal fans that came with my Fractal Design R6 were much quieter! Probably some setting in Bios that I haven't found yet .. Edit: Switched to the DC version and it became silent immediately! https://classic.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?p=5107667

Do what it should, fine colors with Asus Aura. Bought this instead of the PWM version which was horribly honed.

Very good performance! Had an Asus GTX 1060 before which I was very happy with. Can run everything in Ultra with 1080p (still running most things in 1080p and chose this because I was going to wait 3 years before jumping up to 4K in games)! Can run both Assassin's Creed Odyssey and GTA V on Ultra settings without problems in 60 fps (1080p). F1 2019 I can run in 4K with Ultra settings and stable 60 fps without problems. Very many of today's games can be run in 2k or 4k with max settings with this card. I've only run the card in normal mode without overclocking, so there are some extra fps to pick out if you want it with Asus software. https://www.asus.com/us/site/graphics-cards/gpu-tweak-ii/ Very quiet and and energy efficient. The card is semi-passive so the fans are only active under heavy load. Right now the temp is around 65 degrees when I max the card, The card has RGB if you want to use it, and can be switched off via a button directly on the card or with software if you want. https://www.asus.com/supportonly/AURA(Graphics Card) / HelpDesk_Download / The only downside is that the card is very long 30cm, so you have to remove the hard drive cradle in the front of the chassis (I have a Fractal Design Define R4). Hence minus one star. Ray Tracing works well, but I did not buy this card to be able to max upcoming titles with RTX, for me it is enough to be able to run on RTX on Low or Medium. That's why I chose 2060 Super and not 2070 Super Thought to wait until PCI Express 5.0 was launched and buy a whole new can then, as well as a new RTX card when Ray Tracing matured and became standard in most titles in about 2 to 3 years. So I have this card as an "intermediate card" for about 3 years ahead. I don't think RTX makes a huge difference vs without RTX so that's why I skipped 2070 Super and saved SEK 2500 to get about 10 fps extra. As long as I run in 1080p this card will last at least three years. If you want to run at higher resolutions than 1080p and want RTX on Medium in upcoming titles, buy a 2070 Super or higher if you think it's worth the money. Take for example this clip and compare it also differs in different titles https://youtu.be/_eSl97CEHXo?t=45

Works perfectly with Ryzen 5 3600 and Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming (motherboard) Had "trouble starting my jar on the first try and only one of the memory modules solved, but switched on the memory modules and then the jar started oddly enough, don't know if it was due to old bios version from motherboard when I first installed. + Very fast + Stylish RGB, works with Asus Aura and more. Haven't found anything negative to object to yet.

Am very satisfied. First bought a PS4 Slim, but replaced it already after a few days. Want to be able to run F1 2016 without lag or framedrops and there the Slim version was not enough. With Pro I get stable 60 fps and 1080p without framedrops! First thought that the Pro version would overheat and that the fan would sound huge, but Pro is almost as quiet as Slim and then I have driven about 5-6 hours without my Pro being neither very hot nor that the fan runs more than normal a little then and then. I only run 1080p yet, but have little to grow into until the next day I buy a new TV that will become a 4K. benefits + Fast, able to run all games at 60 fps and 1080p (except those locked at 30 fps) + Quite small, does not take up so much space + Quite quiet (not as quiet as PS4 Slim but almost) + Quick and easy menus (much better vs Xbox One) + Ready for 4K and HDR + Future-proof! Will pass all upcoming titles in the next few years without a law (iaf in 1080p) + Price SEK 3790 incl. The game Horizon: Zero Dawn in my case. drawbacks - Lacks Ultra HD Blu-ray player which Sony should have standard in PS4 Pro! - Can pull a little too much power in the power save mode for my taste. - The battery life of the gamepad is quite short (when compared to the Xbox One's gamepad) - The fan may start to sound if you have the PS4 in tight spaces with poor air conditioning. Edit: updated 2018 - 1TB HD is in the smallest stock (has already filled it with games after 1 year and must uninstall and clear often) - The fan may let out some from time to time (make sure to clean the fan every year so it gets quiet) Edit: Has been running for almost a year now and the console stands. Have made my PS4 Pro a racing simulator in the living room with chair (Playseat Challenge) and steering wheel (Logitech G29) and run titles like Project Cars 2 and F1 2017 and they roll in stable 60 fps and 1080p. The next step will be to get VR, but I'll wait until the next VR version CUH-ZVR2 is available in Sweden. Blogged about the updated version here https://tonykollberg.blogspot.com/search?q=psvr Edit 2019 Now there's an updated and quieter version of the PS4 Pro, make sure it's the CUH-7216B version. read more here https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2018-playstation-4-pro-cuh-7200-review

Perfect if you have small spaces and want to be able to clean the chair easily with the steering wheel mounted! I run a lot of simulators and this chair is a good start! It is not straight or wobbly but stable by one's own weight like any other chair. Have had it for two years now and am satisfied. + Affordable + Easy to remove and easy to set with the steering wheel pre-assembled + Comfortable sitting position that can be varied + Stable - Takes place if you now have a small apartment - You should not be too big if you want to fit in the chair without hitting your knees in the wheel
