XFX Black Edition Double D R9-280A-TDBD Radeon R9 280 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The card is a fantastically solid performer, running circles around the 5770 it replaced, and miles ahead of a previously reviewed R9 270.
4k capable gaming at 30+fps frame rates, what more can anyone want?
All for $170 after rebate! with 3 games!

Cons: Not really a con for me.., but a large card. Any case other than a full tower my have space issues to deal with.
Only real con, I should have bought 2!

Other Thoughts: The card has a 6-pin and 8-pin power adapter. Upon swapping of the old 5770, the driver reinstalled and all was good and operational!
Alien Isolation Ultra graphics looks beyond realistic, on a large screen with the lights low and surround on, it feels like you're in the action.
Everyone has a different case. I have an NZXT whisper which sounded like a small college refrigerator in the next room, a quiet room (not very audible) and the addition of this card fully cranked adds absolutely no additional noise.

Paired with:
ASRock 990FX Extreme9
Phenom x3 720, unlocked to Phenom 420 2.8 (The Achilles heel in 3d-mark physics testing)
8gb ram
ssd, hdds, in performance configuration (1 ssd, 6 hdd's)
OCZ ZX Series 850W 80Plus Gold

Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The hybrid drive does perform very well after a few normal boots. Great performance and good reputation to bank on.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is a great hdd for a system that is normally powered on with power saving enabled. Wake from sleep is instant. Drive is fast and is a great performance improvement from a standard hdd without the cost of an ssd for a snappy 1-drive system.

MEElectronics  3.5mm TRRS Skype Adapter for PC (22 inches)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works as needed 07/09/2014

This review is from: MEElectronics 3.5mm TRRS Skype Adapter for PC (22 inches)

Pros: Doesn't get much simpler than this. it will take a standard cell phone headset plug (single plug phones and mic) and split into mic and headphone plugs.

Cons: none at all.

Other Thoughts: Don't expect to be able to use the volume or mute buttons. This is adapter is not designed for compatibility for those features.
