Pros: Low power, works well with "store-bought" pcs, very quiet, reasonably cool, very appropriate for casual gaming.
Cons: not a great value at MSRP
Other Thoughts: Bought card for HP home computer (i5-2300, 300w psu). Works really well for me. I had no issues installing or with prolonged use. Hottest temp I recorded was 64C. Reviews put this card even with reference clocked 750 ti. Was big upgrade from gtx 650 I had. With rebate, was below a C-note, which makes it a good value.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Virtually silent, does not require 6-pin power cable to run. No issues with install.
Cons: none as of now
Other Thoughts: bought this card for the family computer that I occasionally do light gaming on. Put it in our Gateway (i5-2300, 2.8 Sandy bridge, Blu-Ray, 1 HDD, 300w psu) worked without issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Energy ESW-M8 1200 Watt Mini Subwoofer (Black) Single
Pros: Super small. Very enveloping bass. Very nice looking. Seems solidly built.
Cons: A bit boomy at first. After break in period and tweaking is much better. Still not quite as "punchy" as I would expect from 8" but good nonetheless. Unit says "Designed in Canada (ok), built in China (not ok)"
Other Thoughts: This is our first subwoofer and probably would be rated highly due to improvement over having none. Recently upgraded receiver to Yamaha rx-a800. Powering Polk Monitor 70's (front), old Advent Audio Focus (center), Polk Fxi-a4's (rear surround) and this sub. Although a hodgepodge of brands sounds quite excellent and the sub after tweaking and break in sounds very good. The size is very important. So small, can fit anywhere and be unobtrusive.READ FULL REVIEW
