MSI R9 280 GAMING 3G 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great card, great performance, reasonable price. I've had it running for about 6 hours.

Cons: Very bad documentation. The "easy" install is to remove the computer covers, find an open slot, insert the card and close the covers. Even the website is not helpful. What's needed to make this work are 2 power connectors, one 8 pin and one 6 pin. I found out about these on a previous review. The card will NOT work without these extra power connections.

Other Thoughts: I had tried 2 different monitors, 3 cables (VGA/DVI) all to no results. Thank goodness that the motherboard displays codes... last code was booting to a legacy system. All MSI needed to do was say that both connectors had to have power.... and I would not have wasted several hours. I was close to an RMA with this card....

Drobo 5N 5-bay NAS Storage Array, Gigabit Ethernet

4 out of 5 eggs A Second Chance.... 06/29/2013

This review is from: Drobo 5N 5-bay NAS Storage Array, Gigabit Ethernet

Pros: Very nice unit, easy to set up. Took (3) 3 terabyte drives & one 1TB. Gives me 9.1 TB of storage. Had to upgrade Ethernet cables to take full advantage of speed.

Cons: Interface should be a browser application. Not easy to create public storage.... One major drawback is that your video driver may cause the Drobo application to crash upon start up. I have an ATI card & am running Win7. The system was using the MS supplied driver. I looked at the pgm dump and saw video info.. installed ATI and all is OK

Other Thoughts: I would get another unit if/when they go on sale. I got an RMA for this as it was crashing all time. After the video driver being switched, the Drobo app ran fine.

Cons: Failed twice and the Samsung web site is full of errors when you try to request service..

Other Thoughts: I would buy another brand
