Pros: Fast - when it worked
Cons: Unstable, crashes, bsod's, black screens, etc. RMA'd it, and the replacement is just as bad, if not worse. 5 minutes into a game it hard locks or justs shuts down the PC. Put my 465gtx back in and its rock solid for hours on end. Avoid.
Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time with sapphire, lots of web info about junk cards, inferior components, and wasting your time RMA'ing just to get a worse card back.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When it works, it handles all my games nicely.
Cons: Constant hard locks, freezes, and glitches. Returning for RMA. This was my first AMD/ATI Card since the 9600 era. Really disappointing, since this card was twice as fast as my rock solid 465GTX at 1/2 the price. Should have stuck w/ Nvidia.
Other Thoughts: Really wanted this to be a good card, other reviewers also have hard lock issues. Avoid.
The usual things like updating PC BIOS, updating drivers, trying different games, different combinations of 1, 2, 3 monitors, etc, made no difference. This PC was rock solid before I swapped out the Nvidia 465gtx. I have a 1KW PSU, so lack of power is not an issue.
Pros: Large clear screens, ordered two and neither have any dead pixels. Blue power LED's match my other devices. Monitor has an ECO mode setting that saves energy and still provides good image quality and brightness.
Cons: I can't really say these are cons, at least not at this price point:
-Only VGA and DVI Input.
-Both bezels on my pair were scratched out of the box
-Inputs are on the back and stick straight out, if you have heavy DVI cables, they will stress the port since they stick straight out and you can't get these close to the wall.
-OEM stand is cheap and has little adjustment capability, I have them mounted on fully adjustable aftermarket stands.
Other Thoughts: Comes with all cables needed, handy if you're short on DVI cables, but I have about 30 VGA cables now. Wish they were 1920x1200 and not 1920x1080.READ FULL REVIEW
