Pros: Very fast phone! Looks great, feels solid! Got one update for stagefright and according to the play storay stagefright checker, I'm patched against all except one. Can add in an microsd card.
Cons: Wish battery lasted a full day. No Marshmellow yet. No removable battery.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a moto g. This is lightyears ahead of it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Card works if you use cables directly from power supply. Card seems quite fast on Metro at 1680x1050 with all details up + AA. Raymond seemed friendly and helpful after I contacted him. He suggested updating my PC's bios. I may try this if I see another crash, but after gaming an hour using the 8 pin power, I think I may be all good.
Cons: 6-8 pin adapter. My previous review was a mistake. I apologize to Raymond & Powercolor.
Other Thoughts: I previously left a one-egg review that I am not sure I can remove. I'm leaving a 5 egg review to counter it. When I originally hooked up the video card, my 8 pin power cable was buried deep in my case, while my 2nd 6 pin was near the video card. I used the adapter that came with the card, but the card crashed and I figured it was the card. I think it was actually that cable as I seemed to have solved the crashes after digging deep in my case & running the 8 pin power supply cable directly to the card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked ok for the first 2-3 weeks.
Cons: Started locking up in the middle of playing Torchlight. Game would hang with sound just playing. I'd have to hit the reset button/reboot to recover. Windows System logs said "bugcheck 0x00000117". My system should handle this easily: i5-4570, 16G (2*8GB) ram, 3 hard drives, 2 ssd, Corsair HX 750w power supply. Win7-64. Upgrading drivers didn't fix the issue. Must be hardware, right? System was rock solid stable before "upgrading" from my 6870 -> R9 290.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as it was the cheapest R9 290 on Black Friday, after rebate. I'm probably now out $10-$15 to ship this back and most likely it will be 2'ish weeks until I get another card. If I knew I'd have this issue, I would have spent a little more for a better quality card. I don't overclock anything so I figured something simple/cheap would work.READ FULL REVIEW
