This review is from: Klipsch Synergy Sub-10 420W 10" Subwoofer Black
Pros: Has a nice built in adjustable crossover. Works best at just past half way. Gains work best at 25% to 60% after that it makes no difference.
The best thing about this particular sub is the driver has an unusually high sensitivity rating, which makes it much louder at any given input value than a like speaker with a lower sensitivity rating. The reason i re-purposed the driver.
Cons: In storage for a month the amp stopped working. The compactors had popped, and when powering it on it had causing the board to burn up.
When i took it apart to repair it, I was quite disappointed in the components used. Finding parts for it were not easy. I was going to build my own amp, but I ended up hooking it up direct to my 60 watt rotel amp with a crossover which pushes it harder than the stock amp could. so this is how i come tot he conclusion that the stock amp is less than 50 watts. Also when looking up the part numbers I kept getting info the amp was 35 watts
Pros: Intel has a program you can get from their site that can help you update the firm ware easily if needed, as well as some minor maintenance options.
Cons: Was 139.00 for a month, now its 199. Wish I had bought 3. The day after black Friday the price jumped to 199.99. I was gonna buy 2 more. All the ssds jumped in price over night. Not really a con, but the price hike bugs me.
Other Thoughts: Intel has always been know for being a bit more expensive than it competition and a bit more reliable and faster for identical speed in cpu's. An intel cpu with all the same specs on paper will over clock significantly better than its amd supposed equal.
Now with this in mind I would expect the same for e their ssds. If you see a good price on an Intel ssd get it.
Pros: Finally able to run BF3 at 45 to 90 fps at max setting 4x aa.
GTA4 runs faster too. Though GTA4 is dated, and is written very code heavy. Only 34 to 65 fps. No need to overclock. Over clock will only give you 3 to 9 fps. Runs Far Cry 3 at 60 FPS solid. Quite. It came in just under a week. 3 free awesome $50 games, but that is a temporary deal.
Cons: Didn't come with the vga to dvi adapters. Display port placements are 2 close and poorly thought out. No case badges.
Other Thoughts: Gigabyte has been well known for making quality products for long time. I have only used their Mobo's so far. I hope their cards turn out to be just as reliable.
Compared to my old Sapphire card I think I made the right choice. I rma'd My vapor x twice.
If you're in the market for a GFX card, The best choices are MSI or Gigabyte.
The first number is year the second number is what counts. Having the 7970 would be nice, but their is not much gain for a 140 more dollars.
*7** is 128 bit
*8** is 256 bit
*9** is 384 bit
I hope this helps you understand the numbers better. Nvidia works the same.
This year Nvidia messed the numbers around. The*50 are not 256 bits any more.
I seen people here say the card is loud. That can corrected with a push pull fan set up on your case. If you have an oem case, you only have one fan and need a second one any way. Silent cat fans are very quite.
