Pros: My PC is connected to a UPS with an LCD watts consumed display. Substantially lower power use than the GTX 260 it replaced. Noise OK, Easy install. No problem with the power attach under the shroud. WOT video autodetect set everything to maximum.
Cons: On stock AMD driver fan curve card hits max of 74C. Guess I need to install a custom fan curve. I like to keep video below 70C. Paid one sixty four + ship at Newegg in Feb 2013.
Other Thoughts: Video card come with a scratch off card for the games. You hit a website with teh number, they promise to email you STEAM codes for the games when the games are avail in March/April. I like steam. I did not try the driver disk, instead wen to AMD driver download. Win7 64 bit. Worked fine. I have not played with power setting or overclocking - no need so far. GPU-z reported asic quality of 80% (not really a con, just an fyi). voltage is 1.075 max on this card, that varies with individual chip.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this monitor in 2011. It's large! and has 1920 x 1200 which means you get more vertical space to real column formatted web pages, etc. Color seems fine. No dead pixels.
Other Thoughts: Would buy againREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought 3 on sale. Tried 1. Brighter than I expected. Clear white light. No signs of spotlighting, the light is uniform. Replaced a year old still working CFL that was a 60W equiv. The LED light is brighter.
Cons: LED technology still early. The first CFLs went up like popcorn, later batches worked. Not sure if the LEDs will work for their rated life.
Other Thoughts: Have not tested on dimmer. 1 day is less then the many hour life.READ FULL REVIEW
