Pros: Well packaged and undamaged. Performs as designed. Bought two of them for Quad SLI. No heat/noise issues. Trouble/bug free in the time I have had it.
Cons: None - see other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I paired my two 690's with an AMD system I had to begin with (OCed FX-8120 & 990chipset) Then, with an OCed i5 3570K & z77. OC FX @ 4.3 compared to stock i5 showed about 10% with intel in BF3, 3Dmark11 and Heaven 3.0 bench. OCed i5 to 4.9 and I see about a 25-28% improvement. Oddly, the bulldozer core usage never peaked above 70 (just a little more then the i5). After further investigation and talking to both ASUS support (for the AMD MB) and EVGA, discovered that the 990 chipset is the bottleneck and not the CPU. So much for the Faildozer hate. When looking at benches though, its the quad channel six core intel CPUs that let these cards shine.
On a side note, I dont believe it's fair to dock eggs b/c something you bought was "two expensive". You knew the price going in. But, I agree that the price increase over previous dual GPU cards is unjustly high. This is what happens when there's a lack of competition. He's to AMD's survival.
This review is from: Intel Gift - Intel Game Pad 0810 Mouse Mat
Pros: Very big. I thought this was going to be a con, but no. I never realized how useful as a gamer a larger mouse pad would be.
If I knew how more comfortable and useful a large mouse pad could have been earlier, I would have spent the money on it then.
Other Thoughts: It was a free gift as part of a purchase I made on Newegg.com. So even if I didn't like or benefited from it I would not have docked an egg.
I will never go back to a small/standard pad again.
This review is from: GTMax Wii to HDMI Video Audio Converter 720P 1080P HD Output Converter TV
Pros: You can now connect your Wii to a TV with an HDMI cable.
Cons: Someone's gonna belive that the images from their Wii will magicly improve from 480i to 720p or even 1080p.
Other Thoughts: You can't make a signal more detailed then the source. DVD's can't become Blu Ray quality and Nintendo Wiis will always be Standard Def, not Hi Def.READ FULL REVIEW
