HotHardware Holiday Gift Guide 2010As the holiday season rapidly approaches, there’s one question that gets asked rather frequently: Have you been naughty or nice? Of course, we all know that a lot hinges on this seemingly simple question. If you’ve been nice, then perhaps Santa will bring you an awesome gift; that one piece of hardware you've been jonesing for. On the other hand, if you’ve been naughty and have cursed your computer (hey, who hasn’t?) or ignored your significant other because Left 4 Dead 2 or Modern Warfare 2 beckoned, then you’d better shape up before it's too late. Otherwise, the only thing you’ll have to look forward to is a lump of coal, or worse. Believe us--we've been there.

As we look back on this past year, and wonder why each year seems shorter than the last, we also reflect on our many traditions here at HotHardware. One of our favorites is our annual Holiday Buyer’s Guide...

>> Have you been naughty or nice?

 

Oh sure... throw that in my face.

 

I have the Samsung SyncMaster P2770 (not FH), and highly recommend it.  Even with 2ms time (same contrast ratio), I never notice ghosting or blurring.  The FH model sounds like an awesome gift.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

I turned 57 today,...........


BTW: good list of bling,.....I like too much of it for my own good.

The ASUS WiCast EW2000 Wireless HD Video Transmitter and Receiver is especially tempting to me.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I'm actually happy that I already have several things on the list.

Something to add in, for those people like I was with six (yes SIX) remotes on my coffee table is the Logitech Harmony series of remotes.  The Harmony One for those who don't need RF, the Harmony 900 (which I picked up) for those who do.

I fell in love with the remote less than an hour after opening it.  Replaced all my remotes, actually handles all the I/O and on/off for any activities you use it for, full color touch screen.  Review it guys!

Nice gift list really like the list. Specifically the GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5is an awesome 1366 socket board which I have used on one rig for close to a year now with no issues at all. The NZXT Phantom and Corsair Cases are awesome, as are the headphones (of which I need a new pair of, just because I want some )). I could personally really use a flat screen monitor as well 22.5" or bigger (as it is always better) will do, just hit me up for my address when you wanna send me one.

ASUS Z87C
i7-4770K
Xonar DGX
Intel Gigabit CT
Geforce GTX 770 4GB
G.Skill X1600/1754 2x8GB 7/8/8/24

I wouldn't mind a T-Rex to keep my neighbor's dog from crapping on my lawn,............

Might I add that the 40gb agility 2 is on sale and with rebate will cost you $96.  The Vertex 2 costs $84.99 after rebate.

Great list I will have to look at a few of these to put under the tree.  Just wonder if I will be able to resist the urge to put my name on them.
