This review is from: Westinghouse 32" 720p LED-LCD HDTV UW32SC1W
Cons: The television after 2 months received vertical lines on the left side of the screen as a previous person had posted this television had issues. Was unable to RMA as 30 day warranty has passed and had to contact Westinghouse via e-mail since they're service request technical support service keeps having me on wait for over an hour and I had to recall several times and still have yet to resolve the issue. Your best bet is to go with other brands like Vizio, Sony, Samsung or LG as I had purchased those brands in the past and had better customer service and even less television issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good device if you want to attach a optical link. Windows 7 read it right away and I went to the creative site for the updates. Works like a charm. Games sound amazing.

This review is from: XFX R9290AENFC Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 CrossFireX Support Video Card
Pros: The card is very fast and will run all games on Ultra settings at 1080P with Full AA. The card is installed on my system which is an AMD FX-8150, 16GB DDR3 RAM 1600, Corsair 512GB SSD, Windows 7-64 Ultimate, 1000 Watts PSU and Cooler Master Scout Storm. Skyrim has about 140 Mods on it and runs perfect at 120 FPS at 1080P. Definitely a different card than my previous 6850 1GB. The Card runs Crysis 3 the same settings except I reduced AA.
Cons: The card definitely goes up to 95Celsius. The Card is about 11 inches Long so beware for Mid-tower cases as I had to remove the hard drive cage to make room. Also the big thing is overclocking. I used three different overclocking programs and same results while gaming...freezing. The PC had to be restarted many times even Overclocking it to 1000 on Core. Definately be careful if you overclock. I even used RealVision ENB on SKYRIM and had major artificating because of how hot this card gets so be careful SKYRIM users if your placing an ENB. FAN is very Loud over 75%. 100% is deafening. The three programs I used of course is Catalyst, MSI Afterburner, and Sapphire Trixxx. So far I like Sapphire the most. Voltage is locked by the way but you can run the risk of unlocking it by downloading a difference BIOS just make sure you save your current one using GPU-Z.
Other Thoughts: If you have the money....I would suggest purchasing a water-block for this GPU from FrozenCPU whenever its in stock. Definitely I don't feel safe having to Game at such high temperatures as you can see it makes overclocking nearly impossible on AIR cooling. Sorry but if your overclocking at temps at 95 Celsius either you have disposable income or you like RMA'ing. Water-Block is about close to $130 so if you think about it you'll spend as much as a 780ti with the exception of 1GB more VRAM for high-resolution users.READ FULL REVIEW
