EVGA 04G-P4-3975-KR GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: So far I'm VERY impressed with the card and how it works out of the box. I'm sure you could overclock to squeeze some more out of it, but it does what I need the way it comes.

Cons: Not free? I put this in an Alienware Graphics Amplifier and tried it out with the new Alienware 13, but both of those went back due to driver issues. The card did what it should and worked great. I have a real desktop on the way and plan on putting it in there for more long-term use.

Other Thoughts: I got myself a g-sync capable monitor too and I'm planning on really using all of the features it offers. From the little bit I was able to use this card,it was impressive and quiet.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've got six of these in my home lab, it works well holds up and is generally great. I started having BSOD's and yup, it turned out to be a bad stick, I contacted G.Skill for an RMA and it was as easy as sending it back and they had me a new stick of memory in no time. VERY happy with the product and the support from the manufacturer.

Cons: I cannot think of any.

SIIG JU-DK0111-S1 USB 3.0 Dual Head Docking Station
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Nice, once you get it running 05/16/2013

This review is from: SIIG JU-DK0111-S1 USB 3.0 Dual Head Docking Station

Pros: It gives me one place to plug everything in, works pretty well but still has its own share of quirks. It did not want to work with my Intel eXtensible USB controller in Win8 - there is only the default driver from Microsoft...kinda.

Cons: Have to jump through a ton of hoops to get it working. Mouse studder/lag on occasion still.

Other Thoughts: After fighting with it and running into the "reported/known issues" and doing everything I could think of, I stumbled over a way to get the Win7 Intel drivers in place for the USB controller and then it just works. Details on the fix are outlined here: http://plugable.com/2012/12/01/windows-8-and-intel-usb-3-0-host-Controllers - worked for me.
