Pros: -Impressive rendering quality and speed.
-Twin fans and a heatsink that covers *most* of the card keep temperatures relatively cool.
Cons: -Horrible customer service from ASUS; be prepared to fight if your card fails. They will try not to honor the listed 3-year warranty.
- VRAM is...unstable. Whether it is poorly positioned and is absorbing too much heat or is not covered by the heatsink, I'm not sure, but it gets very hot.
-Massive card. Pictures do not do it justice. Do no purchase this card unless you have a large case. THIS WILL NOT FIT IN CASES MID-TOWER AND SMALLER!
Card failed after about a year of use, research and testing determined that the VRAM module on the card was far outside the accepted thermal limits, most likely from a faulty or poorly designed heatsink. IR thermometer picked up temperatures in excess of 120 C. ASUS customer support is nightmarish to work with. They have fought me every step of the way to get this replaced, despite the listed 3 year warranty.
Other Thoughts: I remember from years ago ASUS was my go-to for anything video card related. I never used to have these problems with them. And while the card itself is impressive, the lack of reliability is not. Overall, I would not purchase this again, and would have to put some serious thought into getting another product manufactured by ASUS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 450W Quiet 12CM Fan ATX Computer PC Power Supply
Pros: This is a very useful tool for testing your patience and expanding your swearing vocabulary.
Cons: Well, this sad story begins when I came home to find the PSU package appeared to have fallen into my driveway from a bombing range. The PSU was clearly visible through the "packaging", and the packaging itself was literally falling apart. Regardless, I opened it, found, to my shock, they had sent me the wrong PSU. The one they sent me was LARGER then the one I ordered. I ordered a 450w, and received a 680w. I thought, "Ok, I can work with this, it will make up for the poor packaging." Wrong. After putting everything together, it turns out the PSU I was sent was DOA.
Other Thoughts: I will be RMA'ing immediately and will be adding this seller to my companies Do Not Purchase list. I unfortunately cannot in good conscience recommend this seller to anyone. It goes to show, you get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Definitely lives up to the rugged part; used it for six months in Afghanistan and it worked like a beast. It's very comfortable (but that's my opinion, as everyone's ears are different.) Also very modern looking, and the silicone covers help keep it in good shape. Best sound quality I've had on a Bluetooth, and the import address book feature is nice.
Cons: Phone command menu is kind of annoying, and battery life is only ok. About 4-5 hours max.READ FULL REVIEW
