+A solid inch shorter than my GTX 260 which it outperforms
+Epic deal while it lasted
-Can be noisy, doesn't bother me
-No accessories at all
-Not guaranteed to work.
Bought 2 of these when they were on sale for the total price of a half-decent graphics card. First one worked flawlessly. Second one didn't. The fan may have not been spinning up on the second one because it appeared to be overheating, causing artifacts and bluescreens even at no loud, which could be triggered by doing anything like turning on aero or changing the resolution or even moving a window around on the desktop. Tried in 2 different rigs, with a variety of drivers including windows ones. I noticed that not a whole lot of air was coming out of the rear exhaust on either card, apparently one card could take the heat, the other couldn't. RMA'd the second and am waiting on a replacement. The fan speed can easily be adjusted through MSI afterburner however, which is what i'll do with the replacement.
