Pros: PWM, rubber mount, quiet as one could reasonably ask for. I don't think I've ever had a fan with a better airflow-to-noise ratio. Still as quiet as day one despite running essentially 24-7 for over a year. It's even nice looking.
Cons: One could say price, but I think they're worth every penny.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low cost, low profile, passively cooled. My package contained low profile brackets for the DVI/HDMI ouputs AND the VGA header, despite the product description mentioning neither. HDMI out is full size and provides audio.
Cons: Runs a bit warm. That's not unexpected from a fanless card built to a price, though, and a 60C average is well underneath the 105C thermal ceiling. Also a little underpowered relative to similarly priced 5450 cards.
Other Thoughts: This is an ideal card given the right purpose, i.e. you've got a SFF case that doesn't have the appropriate type/number of outputs and isn't going to see any serious (or moderate) gaming. I installed it in an old business-class desktop with a noisy proprietary card that only had S-video and a special head for a dual-output VGA dongle, turning the box into an HTPC and cutting noise by greater than half.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech X-230 32 watts RMS 2.1 Black Speaker System
Pros: Good price vs. performance ratio
Cons: Components are hardwired together, cables are too short, right-angle mini jack is a nuisance, subwoofer often too loud even when turned to min. volume
Other Thoughts: I've owned many Logitech components and have always been pleased; perhaps I expected a bit too much from a lower-priced system. This rig is obviously games-biased. Midrange is decent, but the bass is far too heavy, and highs can lack definition.READ FULL REVIEW
