1 out of 5 eggsAwful

Pros: Has potential, works alright when it does work

Cons: Needs to boot about 3 times when restarting to get to the load screen (other 3 cards I have have no such issues), tried everything, stripping out the drivers, reinstalling the operating system. I have RMA'd 2 of these cards. Look elsewhere

1 out of 5 eggsDIAMOND R9290D54GV2 Radeon R9 290

Pros: Never had it work long enough to identify any, purchased for the 512bit capability

Cons: Seemed unstable from the start but thought it might be software related, soon found that it was not. Power supplies, main boards, OSes, all components were swapped out and all would work with my old HD 6950 card but this card would crash within minutes if it was recognized at all. RMA took a few weeks, with a replacement card that was a different model from my original card (mine was D54GV2, the card sent to me was a D54G.)

Other Thoughts: Am waiting for response to my follow-up contact with DiamondMM tech support.

2 out of 5 eggsPotential is there.

Pros: Very powerful card. Lots and lots of potential. Ran all games and applications at their full potential. Never got over 70% load.

Cons: Worked for exactly 39 days. PC failed to display while/after POST. Replaced with spare R7 270X and PC ran flawless. All products in PC were bought at the same time. Extremely disappointed in the quality of this card for the price I paid.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks Good when it works

Pros: - Card was quieter than mentioned in reviews. If you are use to the sounds of a Geforce 500 to 600 series then you will not notice the fans.
- Great performance card for the price point

Cons: - Card crashed my entire PC
- ASUS will not boot because VGA LED light is red and other PCI slots and GPUs confirm the card is at fault.

Other Thoughts: I would not rule out this card for repurchase. Its price point for performance is too appealing to pass up but a more reliable card might be more enticing for a consumer who is not as technologically inclined.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: This thing is a beast!! Almost just as fast (maybe 10% less) than it's big brother the 290x but for over $100 less.
This card crushes my previous benchmarks in Unigine Heaven than my 7950. It nearly doubled the score and FPS. I was even able to fully max Heaven and receive a respectable score. Very fast card!!

Cons: The cons are small and few. It's a little long so it barely fit in my case. It's a little loud, but I game with headphones so no biggy. I'm still not too sure about Diamond brand as it's my first piece of hardware made by them. I bought this at a retail store and opted for the 3 year replacement plan, just in case. I also hear they don't OC too far but there is no need to do so. It also requests that you have a 750 watt PSU which seems high for a single card.

Other Thoughts: This is shaping up to be a really good purchase. I'm confident I'll be maxing out games for a long time to come!!

Other specs: AMD FX 8350 @ 4.5
8 GB RAM @ 1333
