    I like the look of that. In fact I am in the market for a VA 27" 1440p Monitor, preferably not curved - closest match I saw was a Samsung with the same design as above. Only sticking point for me is the colour, if they had one in black it would be a done deal.

    Jason, you haven't updated your profile page, it still lists the Acer as your display.

    Yeah some of the packaging I've received things in hasn't been up to par as well, but luckily I've never had anything damaged.

    No I just had it in my cart last night and I was going to buy it today, but I thought "give yourself a night to think on whether you want to buy another headset from the same manufacturer again", and after I thought about it, I thought I would give another stereo headset that basically had really good reviews a try rather than go with Kingston HyperX again.

    Edit: Plus I really didn't like how the mic cable that is twisty got disfigured over the years after being moved around and bent in different directions on the HyperX.

    Ok, I know I know, I knew what I was getting into and I still got it, this SSD is slow as molasses, it arrived on Friday and I didn't know it was in the mailbox, I wish I knew, could have tested it with Judas, it is trash!

    I'm sending it back for store credit, I'll take a $20 hit but that's fine, and I'll get a better NVMe in the future. I'm going to spend a month researching, so far this one looks like the winner, it's gotten good reviews but I'm going to look around some more just in case.

    Toshiba OCZ RD400:

    It's a toss up between the Toshiba and this one AData XPG SX8200 Pro so far:

    [​IMG]

    This one also looks interesting, but considering it is currently going for the same amount as the Toshiba OCZ RD400 which I think performs better I will probably want to stick with the Toshiba, it is the HP EX920 (it also has a power on LED which some people don't like but for me that makes the HP more desirable):

    [​IMG]

    Edit: Got a new one to add, and this one takes the cake so far, can't believe I forgot about it, the Western Digital Black WDS100T2X0C, better start a thread in the Hardware Discussion forum:

    MasterFan MF200R RGB - Premium-Quality 200mm RGB Hybrid Silent High Airflow In-Take Fan (coz the blue LED one was wack):

    Edit: wowowowowwowowow, just found out I don't even need a top exhaust fan for this case, everyone is saying it messes up the air pressure, order canceled.

    Lousy photo I know. XZ1 in blue. Up close it's gorgeous and more a mix of grey with blue than blue. Beautiful phone, beautiful lines.

    Very nice, I like, was wondering when you were gonna show this to us. :)

    So you are one of those people that don't take off stickers?

    I do and I have to as there is a texture on it. It's not dirt what you see on the screen, it's the texture/design of the film. I am just charging it first time.

    Thanks, well there is nothing seriously wrong with my previous phone. The only issue is the limited amount of internal storage (8GB) which is a pain with some applications refusing to install on the sd. Also it's nice to have a 4K camera on my phone. It's not going to be as good as my dedicated Panasonic camera, but perfectly fine on its own.
