Pros: Definitely impressed with what is delivered for $69.99. Runs L4D2 on full settings flawlessly. Software install was easy. Drivers were updated and the card was quickly functional in both Windows 7 and Ubuntu.
Cons: I was amazed at how big this card is. I had to re-route my DVD audio and one of my fan cables, but that's not really the card's fault.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs quiet, plays most games on high settings.
Cons: Died after about 4.5 years of use.
Other Thoughts: Bought this card in June 2007 and it burned-out in January of this year; total longevity at 4.5 years. While I definitely feel that I got my money's-worth, I'm disappointed in the fact that I've had several video cards which lasted much longer than that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: As the title says, it looks great. With two 120mm fans, there is also plenty of airflow. LOTS of room in there. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.
Cons: Has SHARP edges...I lost a fair amount of blood due to this case.
I own another Raidmax product (Smilodon), and I was disappointed at how big of a step-down this one was from that. The tool-less drive mounts are tricky to open, and take more force than you might think. They're also on both sides, requiring the removal of BOTH side-panels to mount a CD/DVD-ROM drive.
There is only one PSU rail. Not a huge deal, but if someone were to unscrew your PSU from the back, it would fall down into the case.
The side-view panel doesn't fold-down, it comes-off with thumbscrews. Not a big deal, just inconvenient.
Other Thoughts: It's a good product for a stable hardware setup that (hopefully) you don't need to spend a lot of time under the hood on. I would have rated this 4 eggs, but I'm deducting one additional for sustained blood-loss on multiple injuries (cuts on fingers...one was REALLY deep).READ FULL REVIEW
