Pros: Large screen - I am going down a step from my 32inch HDTV I was using but really a TV is not ideal for gaming or doing anything where you have to read text ha ha. This monitor is great and it was packaged well. I got this for 50% off so that is what really sold me but I could see paying close to full price for this monitor.
Other Thoughts: Looks sharp and it does tilt well but I would like it if it could extend as I am 6'5" and it's not all that tall.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a 4GB card for way less than other cards of similar quality and I have always had amazing luck with XFX. My old XFX card still is running after 8 years but it was time for me to upgrade my MoBo, CPU and Ram so I figured I would do the GPU as well as I was starting to have trouble with games on Ultra settings. This card really stays cool in an open breezy case like the Antec 1200 but honestly I have yet to even hear the fans on it. The card scores 7.9 out of 7.9 in windows test. It only takes one 6pin connector!
Cons: Not really a con but something to be aware of - This is a large card, it actually fit in my mid size ATX case with like 2 inches to spare but I would not put it in anything smaller. In my new Antec 1200 case 3+ inches of room before the drive bay comes into play and honestly it lines up it could go into the bay area if needed.
Other Thoughts: Hope to set this up in crossfire mode with another one when they come back in stock(since it only takes 1x 6pin and my mobo can do 2x slots at x16 speed its ideal). Would have bought a second one the day after I installed this beast had it still been in stock. Not because I need the power but because I am an enthusiast. Just like I don't need 32GB of RAM but I like having more memory in my desktop than the servers I work on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Really fast, and easy to use software to clone the drive comes with it! I was able to clone (and using advanced menu pick and choose what games I still use etc.) and leave out all my old college folders and my storage partition. Best thing is that I get to easily keep my old win7 key without hassle and if I want to try windows 10 I can always clone over top. The best thing is that since this is my first personal SSD I get the added bonus of having a full image backup that is boot-able on my old HDD.
Cons: 3.5inch bracket was not great and would prefer a full size bracket with the drive centered but I can see that would increase the shipping size a lot and weight plus you can always just buy another bracket.
Other Thoughts: Got this for really cheap but I think I would have paid close to full price for the quality. Wish I had bought 2 for raid configuration but it's plenty fast with my new MoBo and gets a 7.2 out of 7.9 on my windows rating if you pay attention to those things. I had a fast boot time before but I think it might have took a few seconds off and when you load into profile it seems like its just ready to go. Please note I have done a few other upgrades along side of this so performance may be coming a bit from elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
