Pros: This card is very quiet. I can run it at 70% while playing video games and barely hear it. It also runs cool. It nevet gets above 70 degrees C. The performance is better than I thought it would be. I can play BF4 on high smoothly with this card.
Cons: When I first got the card from newegg, it would freeze my computer just sitting on the desktop. I see a lot of other reviews stating this as well. It is NOT a driver issue, it is a defective card. I did an RMA with Asus and I had no problems whatsoever with the card they sent back to me.
Other Thoughts: Everyone having problems with this card just do an RMA with Asus and they will fix it for you and there will be no more freezing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is snappy, the graphics look great. When hooked up to an HDTV, the text is a lot sharper and better looking than a NVIDIA graphics card. It is a lot quicker than I thought it would be.
Cons: Can't play a lot of video games that use DirectX 11. I tried playing games like Fallout 3, Bioshock, and others but they do not work with the built in graphics of this processor.
Other Thoughts: Great for the money, especially If your doing a budget build and don't plan on doing any gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Connect 2TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive HDTC720XK3C1 Black
Pros: When connected to a USB 3.0 port this drive is very fast. I am streaming content from this drive on my PC to my Apple TV and this drive loads HD movies so fast. After 1 minute of starting an HD movie, It will have already been 75% loaded. The 2 TB of space on this drive is also nice since I mainly use it for HD Movies.
Cons: This drive will go to sleep after 5 minutes of being inactive. The start up is a little slow. If the drive is not on, and you select a song to play in iTunes, It will take about 5 seconds for the song to stop playing. The solution was to download free software to keep the drive from sleeping. Now it stays on all the time! This con was not enough for me to take an egg off and some people may actually appreciate the power saving feature.
Other Thoughts: I would take full advantage of the USB 3.0 for this drive. If you are hooking this up to a USB 2.0 port, then you are kind of missing the point of upgrading to the 10x faster USB 3.0 technology. You would be better off getting a USB 2.0 drive since the prices have gone way down.READ FULL REVIEW
