Pros: Very reliable card in my rig I've had no problem with it except for the fact that it gets hot. But I believe that this may be the fault of my rig overall. I run a 1000 watt power supply, 8 core processor, and I have 32 gigs of ram so I use quite a bit of juice [I recently had to buy a processor liquid cooling unit to keep games and other high demand programs from lagging] but I don't have one for my card. So when I took it apart from some routine maintenance [You know, cleaning dust and making sure all the cords aren't getting into fans (Which I remedied with zip ties from Dollar Tree) and making sure the HDD aren't getting too dusty or hot] and I felt the card and almost burned my hand on the metal pipe work but it's still working like the day I bought it. I honestly cannot think of anything really negative to say about this product. I do feel sorry for those who have had a bad experience with their card but to blame the card itself on a small fraction of faulty cards doesn't do this product justice. As far as graphics go it runs most games flawlessly. I haven't seen much in the way of artifacts on my screen and I definitely haven't had any crashes because of my card. The problem most of the people may have could be a faulty MOBO or viruses if they pirated their games but the card itself is sturdy and has preformed beyond my expectations.
Cons: Like I said in the Pros section heat is my only issue. Although it's not an issue yet the card is a bit big for my case and I recently noticed that one of my HDD's has been pushing against the card bending it some. I've rectified this with some zip ties [Thanks Dollar Tree!] but if I haven't seen it during a routine cleaning I would have never noticed since I haven't had any issues with the card.
Other Thoughts: If they could make a specific liquid cooling system for this card I would STRONGLY consider throwing more of my money at them!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: * Stiff, responsive joysticks
* Works well on both Xbox360 and PC
* Decently long cord
* Bumps on the joysticks for traction
* Actual rubber heads on the joysticks
* Phillips head screws so it can be taken apart and cleaned / repaired.
* Durable for the price
* Actual Xbox360 controller shape [Compared to any Madcatz controller]
Other Thoughts: The only reason my last one broke was because of negligence on my behalf. I can honestly say this is one of the BEST generic controllers I've purchased. If you want a decent controller for just a little bit of money this is a very worthy purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: + Fits the Motherboard snug, so low chance of the heat sink not having good contact.
+ Feels very sturdy, and it's silent.
+ LED indicator in case there's a problem
+ Priced to move
+ Comes with Thermal Grease so there wasn't a second purchase necessary.
+ Has two different sections in the instructions for different types of motherboards.
+ Well known enough to have plenty of video help on websites like Youtube for troubleshooting.
Cons: - Radiator is rather large [Had to drill holes in my PC case for it to fit.
- The bolts and mounting pieces are all just shoved into a bag, no identification mark on the bag just all the pieces are stuffed in there.
- Instructions are just pictures, they don't say what they're doing in the pictures.
Other Thoughts: Overall I like the product, my games and other programs run without a hitch and I've even forgot that my pc was on for a minute because it was so silent and at the price you pay for it I can strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to upgrade without making a large financial investment. [It's not getting a 5 Egg review from me because if my cons.READ FULL REVIEW
