    Don't like them, at all... But then again, I don't like ads on my desktop anyway. If the logo was a bit more subtile, it would be a lot better, but having 1/8th of the screen full of logo, no thanks...

    Ahem..... photoshop :)


    I have to agree tho, the logos are too intrusive. The ones we all played around with a few years go in the Bit logo thread, and even the recent ones, the logo IS the subject, so that's different, but with these the hardware is the subject, and the logo is just a distraction. I understand the need to have the logo there, and I also understand the need to shoehorn the Custom PC logo in as well... but I think they could be more discreet.

    The ice shots are well lit btw :rock:

    I love most of these. The ones with the heatsink encased in ice are absolutely fantastic.

    I've had DIY wallpapers of hardware. One had the Razer Tarantula blue-opaque keys on white background, covering about one fourth of the screen area and the other had three graphic cards (this one was also actually used in a review)...

    The look nice, but the logos are just way too large, but then again, if you have a 1280x1024-screen, just download the large version and crop... Or use teh Photoshop.
