This review is from: DIAMOND HD 5000 Radeon HD 5970 (Hemlock) DirectX 11 5970PE52G 2GB 512 (256 x 2)-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Dual GPU Onboard CrossFire Video Card w/ Eyefinity
Pros: UMMM. . . .
Cons: Diamond. Avoid the headache do not buy from DIAMOND! I purchased a 4870 and registered it with Diamond, after 2 years the card spontaneously started smoking out of my case. (YES SMOKE!) I shut everything down, looked at the card, and realized a transistor had blown on the top if the card, leaving a black scorch mark on my BLUE pci-e slot. I am just fortunate that I was there to shut it off and get the card out before anything got destroyed.
I notified Diamond, had my original receipt from the store I purchased it at, but not my registration info. The pretty much told me to eat it when they replied (4-5 months later!!!).
Not only were they not willing to do ANYTHING to help, but they were rude about it too. First and last Diamond product I will ever own (And as a custom system builder /enthusiast I buy at ridiculous amount of top of the line parts, so Diamond won't be seeing a cut of my annual budget EVER AGAIN!).
Other Thoughts: I even told them I was looking at upgrading my card, and instead of RMA'ing, or repairing it, could they just hook up a rebate of some kind in interest of good faith, (seeing as I can no longer sell my 4870 used to help finance the cause) They didn't even acknowledge my business, they don't seem to have any interest in keeping customers or making them happy. DON'T BUY DIAMOND! (If they keep this up they will go out of business, doubtful that will effect their customer service)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its a corsair power supply, there is nothing but good things to say.
Cons: They just don't exist.
Other Thoughts: They guy who purchased this when the promotion was a $10 rebate, and is bashing Corsair for not giving him another $30 on top of it when they offered a $40 rebate, it's not Corsair's problem that you wish you had waited to buy it for a better deal. They offer promotions. . . PERIOD. Think of all the people who pay for it full price, THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF PROMOTIONS! Trying to get on em when they are available, you missed the boat, it's your fault, CORSAIR's customer service, and support forums are A1.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Perfect match for my P6T Deluxe (v.1) It is super fast and very quiet. Windows 7 Setup could not recognize this drive during setup, so I was forced to setup on a SATA drive and mirror it onto this on, worked like a charm boots from drive no problem. Can't wait to get another and run it in raid.
The price is ridiculous. I hope drives like this start comming down in price.
Other Thoughts: P6T Deluxe
