3 out of 5 eggsGreat card while working----RMA'd

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: The card performed beautifully while it worked. I was able to play everything from Super SFIV , APB reloaded, Deus Ex and CS GO with buttery smooth FPS. I am a recent convert from console to pc so everything seemed great

Cons: The card began heavily "artifacting". Each time I loaded the drivers from the website. The computer became unusable until I entered safe-mode with the default drivers. If I allowed windows default drivers to remain active things were perfectly fine. Gameplay with default windows drivers was limited to a cool 5fps. It was too late to RMA with newegg so I sent out to Asus to have repaired/replaced. I am awaiting the results from the RMA and have been reading the horror stories online. Hopefully things work out. I will post another review once this is complete with my full thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I loved the card and the performance that I have experienced so far with this GFX. I am so hopeful that this is resolved and returned without an issue. I gave the card 3 stars because when it worked it was an amazing treat. When it failed my heart broke.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jason,

Thank your for your time in posting a review about our products. On behalf of ASUS, we would like to apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.

I do understand your concern with the Graphics Card. I want to personally assist you on this matter. Have you tried to remove and then re-seat the video card in its expansion slot or disconnect and reconnect the auxiliary power cables to get it working? You mentioned that the unit was already returned to ASUS for repair, can we have your serial or RMA number for us to review and update the case.

Please let me know if this helps, you can email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and place case #N150514703 in the subject line for a reference.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best regards,
Jerry

1 out of 5 eggsNever ASUS again!

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: It looks nice, that's about it.

Cons: Constant crashing, blue-screening, hang-ups, etc. The card is completely unstable, regardless of what driver version or bios settings are used. System will run anywhere from 2 seconds to a few hours, but it will crash. It's the video card that couldn't.

Other Thoughts: Over 20 years of ASUS ownership, ends today.

1 out of 5 eggsGoodbye ASUS

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: It looked nice?

Cons: Constant crashing, lock ups, blue screens ... regardless of driver version. Card is literally bent over from its own weight, support bracket isn't even straight. Card is basically a glorified paperweight, as it is unstable and unreliable. Might run for two hours, might run for 2 seconds, no telling.

1 out of 5 eggsTROUBLE

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: No,
It taught me one thing. To change companies.
I hope this review will help me to solve this problem
as well as all others.
If it does not appear, I am angry.
Asus quickly respond to my problems after following.
I still have 4 items to make comments.

Cons: Asus fast service, but no response.
Destruction of the CPU of the computer.
No Asus RMA
No response from the service except automated posts. The only answer I had come at the shutdown of the graphics card is to leave like that.
I have problems with my other Asus products. (laptop, monitor, graphics card. motherboard)
This is my last attempt with Asus.

Other Thoughts: I does not endorse products.

5 out of 5 eggsbest R9 200 series

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: the best thing about the card is 1120 MHz core clock right out of the box and with Asus tweak on gaming settings can be overclocked to 1140mhz . running stable and playing every graphic demanding games. runs very cool and quiet. very easy to install and will probably go dual crossfire in the future.

Cons: not much of a con but less power demanding, maybe could use a back plate for looks, could be cheaper just throwing it out there.

Other Thoughts: great card for the budget.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS support

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Don't know

Cons: Was having problems with screen freezing. I called their tech support number and PLEADED for help. The "tech woman" kept telling me I had to connect my computer to the Internet and she would fix it. I told her I could not connect to the Internet. After five rounds of this, I asked her to please connect me with a supervisor, or the next level of tech support. She repeatedly refused. Finally, she hung up on me. I CONTACTED NEWEGG AND RMA'd both the ASUS Sabertooth motherboard and the video card.

Other Thoughts: I've always liked ASUS products, but after the kind of tech support, I won't be buying any more.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Glenn

I certainly understand your concern in regards to the Graphics Card that is having problems and with the technical support that you experienced. My sincere apology for any inconvenience it caused you. I would like to assist you on this matter. I suggest you to to open the machine up and take a look at it. Usually the problem is software or hardware related but occasionally it's just a mechanical problem. Sometimes removing and then reseating the video card in its expansion slot or disconnecting and reconnecting auxiliary power cables can get it to start working properly. Please also try to download the latest display driver, uninstall the current display driver, and then install the new driver you downloaded. This can make lots of problems disappear. Kindly email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and place case # N1503101393 in the subject line for a reference.

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: very beautiful, play older games nicely

Cons: stutters, drops frames randomly, crashes(especially gpu tweak program), fans don't seem to pull much air.........cant even watch youtube without the clip shuddering

Other Thoughts: originally got this gpu as a low budget kind of build, i regret it because it seems to give me nothing but problems, should have spent another $50 or do so for a gtx760

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card For the Price!

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great proformance for a mid-level card. Can max out any game, although my older dual-core processor doesn't keep up sometimes. Play games like NFS: MW (2012) and Star Wars: Force Unleashed 2 at 1920x1080p. It has the ability to play modern games at 1080p easily. Card keeps cool (for an AMD, anyways) around 35 C at idle and 67 C at wide open throttle.

Cons: None really* See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Needs (2) 6+2 PCIE power cords to run. Make sure to have adequate air circulation. For someone on a buget, this card will give you the power for the next couple of years to come. Has Crossfire ability (includes Crossfire bridge cable). Card length is around 10.5 inches, so have some room (this card fit in my mid-size ATX tower... barely). Overall, very happy with my purchase. Great job Asus & AMD. Keep it up!

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: None. Doesn't work. Asus does not even check their replacements sent via RMA to verify that they work.

Cons: Asus RMA process. card will be going back yet again for randomly outputting a garbled signal to the primary monitor

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Grego,

We want to thank you for making an effort posting this review and I understand that you have issue with the graphics card. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this issue have caused you. I understand how frustrating it is since you have RMA'd it already and the graphics card came back the same. If you can give us another chance, I can help you with this issue. I can create a new RMA for the unit and I will note that the first repair is unsuccessful since the unit came back with the same issue. If you want to discuss this matter further please don't hesitate to email at customerloyalty@asus.com and put case # N150368787 in the subject line for your reference.
