This review is from: MSI R9 270 GAMING 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Pros: Great card, Plays everything I need it to and on ultra or very high. THIS CARD IS COOL! This particular card has not run past 60c on me yet. Another good thing is the 1 6pin power connector to save on Watts as well as a molex adapter for those who don't have an extra 6pin on one of their rails. Very Quiet too. Fantastic card looks great, the box this thing is shipped in is beautiful, you really feel like you bought something great.
Cons: Only negatives that cross my mind are: size, it is a rather large card make sure you have room for it, both across and height. I have a gigabyte ud3 and it runs clear across and over my southbridge, but somehow manages to stay cool. And another thing, the biggest con actually , for me anyway. NO CASE STICKER?!?!?? With the glorious box this card comes in I was undoubtedly expecting a Radeon R9 or MSI or both case sticker(s), Even without the exceptional packaging I would expect a case sticker. Perhaps I'm too out of style to realize case stickers aren't cool anymore, whatever it is....it is a let down.
Other Thoughts: Sure wish I had a RADEON R9 case sticker.....i can see it on my case now to the right of my AMD FX sticker and below the "silently cooled by GELID" sticker.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stable, Stable, Stable
Other Thoughts: I always buy Western Digital drives. I know some people dislike them but for me Seagate's cause me the headaches whereas Western Digital has always been solid. I still have just for proof of reliability, an 8 GB WD back from an old Pentium II running in a 6-9 year old computer my mother-in-law uses for an extra data drive. This WD Red drive is outfitted in all 4 of the NAS's I have implemented in the 4 properties I manage. Not 1 hiccup thus far. They've been in service now for just about year.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RTK-006 Cable Tester
Pros: Easy to use and read, slow and fast setting for testing pairs, can test grounded cable too, "leather" case to put it in helps protect it from getting knocked by other tools and potentially causing some cosmetic damage.
Cons: Raised power switch, Plastic may be a little sub par.
Other Thoughts: I bought this because I regularly find myself crimping cable and running lines. This works great to test your work as well as aid's in ruling out faulty cabling. The con I mentioned about the raised power switch may not be an issue to you but for me it is. I carry it in a plain ole tool bag, If I leave the battery in; it will switch on in my tool bag and run the battery dead. To resolve this issue, I just disconnect the battery when I'm not using it and the problem is solved. I also have to do this with my multimeter.READ FULL REVIEW
