Pros: Very quiet card, performs as expected. Managed to OC the core to 1425mhz (+209 mhz) without increasing power limit or voltage which is amazing. The only 970 with dual fans (and good reviews) that will fit into my ITX case.
Cons: Not really cons, but as mentioned above, I overclocked without increasing power limit or voltage due to it already running slightly hot at stock (shoots up to 80 after 5-10 minutes). The card is designed to boost itself until it reaches this temp but I didn't want to push it further.
With that said, if you're looking to overclock this card I'd be hoping for the best out of the stock power limit/voltage if you run it in an ITX system.

This review is from: Acer B326HUL ymiidphz Black 32" 6ms WQHD Dual HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor VA Panel 300 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (3000:1), Built-in Speakers &USB Hub3.0, Height adjustable
Pros: Solid build quality, good black levels and no backlight bleed or glow (one benefit I've found with VA panels over IPS).
Cons: Any movement on the screen seems jittery and has weird discoloured ghosting effects (running native resolution @ 60hz). Gaming is a big no on this monitor which is disappointing even for someone who only plays casually. Asphalt 8 was nearly unplayable, so I imagine most others would be too.
Advertised as having 178/178 viewing angles which may be true to some degree (pun intended), but in actual fact there's so much colour shift I'd say it's only a little better than a TN panel.
Other Thoughts: Didn't buy this on Newegg but shop here often. I got it for $599 on sale and I'll be returning it.
I don't understand the logic behind creating a massive monitor which would be perfect for gamers and movie watchers and then crippling it by not implementing user overdrive adjustment. It seems it was made specifically (and only) for professionals and businesses who would use a monitor in a mostly static image environment (spreadsheets, design, display advertisements, etc). Shame.
This review is from: Transcend TS0GSJ25S3 2.5" SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Aluminum build, fast transfer speeds
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: it says it accepts both HDD & SSD and has been working fine with a 2.5" 5400rpm WD laptop drive. Was a little concerned about it shorting out the drive since the it just sits on top of the metal surface, but it seems fine.READ FULL REVIEW
