Pros: Reads micro and standard SD cards from separate slots on the end and side. Fast, reliable.
Cons: Casing began to separate after a few weeks of use. Fixed easily enough with a drop of superglue, and is now fine.
Other Thoughts: With a growing collection of micro SD cards, I needed a USB 3.0 reader/writer I use use these in. This one, while not particularly elegant, does work, and in a USB 3.0 port, file transfers are fast IF you are using a Class 6 or above card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Affordabe, quick (for most tasks), silent
Cons: Not a 7970, but then it's not supposed to be.
Other Thoughts: If you are a hardcore gamer with a killer rig, you know this card is middling at best. For the rest of us, it packs plenty of horsepower and ability. I upgraded from an HD 4600 series for less than $100 and there was no comparison; with the 12 series drivers, you are good to go.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Move a lot of air, well made, quiet at LOW speeds
Cons: Relatively loud at full speed
Other Thoughts: I got two of these to replace my GELID fans (that were dead silent, but 3-oin and not controllable) so I could control the speed through software on my Asrock mobo. Mission accomplished, but these fans are fairly loud when run at the full 1500 RPM. The Asrock OC util that lets you control the fan speed let me bring them down to an acceptable noise level (my case is 18 in. away, at ear level), but at the expense of air volume moved. Bottom line, you want max air cooling, you're gonna have to listen to fans.READ FULL REVIEW
