Pros: Stylish design, thin profile allows it to fit most any setup. Great read speeds.
Cons: Very poor write speed. Write instability. Gets hot during activity.
Other Thoughts: I was attempting to use this as a boot drive for the Nanobsd version of pfSense. When imaging this drive the copy took a painfully long time. It was much slower than my old USB 2.0 flash drive and on top of that, it started producing write errors. I then performed a read write test on the drive. The reads were great, 95 MB/s. But the write speed was showing between 40 KB (yes kilobytes) to 2 MB/s. I am already past the point of no return so this thing is going to the e-waste factory.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel EXPI9301CTBLK Network Adapter 10/100/1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
Pros: Reliable Intel chipset. Gigabit Ethernet speeds. Low profile.
Cons: A bit on the expensive side for a single port PCIe x1 network card.
Other Thoughts: Using this in a pfSense build as the OPT1 network card. Works like a charm. This replaced two other failed network cards and glad to see it is fully compatible. I was hoping to get a dual gigabit port card but those are way too expensive, unless found used elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Smaller footprint, doesn't require extra power, Ti model, factory overclocked.
Cons: Not a GTX 980 Ti.
Other Thoughts: I got this card to replace an aging GTX 660 non-Ti model. The 660 still worked great, but for me its weakness was its large size. I have a 4U rackmount case which is medium length so that doesn't leave much room for such a large video card. I made it work but with "workarounds".
I was glad to see this 750 Ti model offered which was half the length and fit much better in my case, It wasn't too expensive either. Not only that, this card does not require the additional 6-pin and/or 8-pin power from the PSU. So as a modular PSU user I could rejoice since that meant one less cable to deal with.
I don't do much gaming but I do know the 750 Ti can hold its own in moderate gaming with med to high settings, but not ideal for ultra though. This card won't do SLI but my gaming standards don't require it.
