Pros: my previous review said no fan fix for Linux... not true as of catalyst 8.5? in CLI type aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 45". So now it runs as cool as windows
Other Thoughts: great card, good support in Linux and Windows. Very happy I purchased this card from NeweggREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good performance. Quiet stock fan speed. Price went up after i bought it for once...
Cons: Hot. In windows did the fan fix 45% and put the icon in my startup folder so my wife didnt have to bother with it. Linux, no fan fix but it doesn't seem to be bothering anything I hope.
Other Thoughts: using the card in Ubuntu 8.04 with the fglrx Envy drivers from synaptic package manger. This got me catalyst 8.6 which supports 4850. I read 3d performance equal to 3870 in Linux, hopefully they will better optimize opengl soon but im happy with perf anywayREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KDS K-2626mdhwb Black 26" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 450 cd/m2 750:1
Pros: Good size and resolution, LED on front is dim, pieces are flat black not glossy, stand is made of metal not plastic. good selection of inputs
Cons: bright, monitor wobbles on stand if somebody jumps in the room
Other Thoughts: turn it down if too bright, dont jump in room. i guess it has speakers, i never used them. other than that i am happy i purchased this monitor. good price for 1900x1200 lcd. seems well built.READ FULL REVIEW
