Pros: Got this little guy to use as a Steam Streaming Box, works great. Handles full 1080p streams from my main gaming rig wired or wireless.
Cons: Only things i had issue with were the fact it you can not use Win7, you must use Win8 or linux due to Win7 does not support emmc storage for the OS. Given that im booting strait in to BigPicture mode you dont really notice but would have preferred 7. only other issue was the built in BT. While it it works, I found I had to pair my DS4 every single time I booted. Not a deal breaker but i didnt like having to go back out of BP mode then back in. I solved this by just using a 360controller and a wireless adapter.
Other Thoughts: I bought this on sale for $99 wich makes it a great deal for a steam streamer. Was looking at the ForgeTV as well at the same price point. While im sure FTV will be great full win 8 PC for $99 is hard to beat.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wasn't expecting to much as I picked this up for $259 on sale, I was pleasantly surprised. This little guy looks great at 10' away it's projecting 125" and is still clear enough for viewing with my chromecast connected in the bedroom. Loved the tripod mount and the fact it has a pretty decent and easy to use menu setup.
Cons: Only fault this guy has is it doesn't come with a remote and has no IR sensor to use a universal remote. Every time I want to use it I have to climb up and hit the power button. I knew this before buying so I'm not knocking off any eggs but a sensor to use a universal would have been great.
Other Thoughts: I use this in the bedroom and often fall asleep with it on. I'm glad to see when theres is no input recognized, it shuts down. So while theres no sleep timer built in to the projector it self, if I set my inputs sleep timer it shuts everything down.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card overall. Runs chili on the the ACX cooler, full load doesn't go above 60c. I'm using the NZXT kraken with it now and this card doesn't go above 45c OD'd.(see other) this card will push any game at 1080p and above. I'm running three monitors for 5980x1080(bezel corrected) and this card doesn't even blink.
Cons: I upgraded because one of my 760s died. while this card does perform well, in games that are optimized for SLI dual 760s will outperform it.
Other Thoughts: Running the NZXT Kraken is possible on this card but note you will have to remove the heat spreader or modify it as it will block your cooler from making full contact.READ FULL REVIEW
