4 out of 5 eggs Fantastic card for the price, but showing its age(2016 update) 04/28/2016

This review is from: PowerColor Radeon HD 6670 DirectX 11 AX6670 2GBK3-H 2GB 128-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: -Low power needs
-Quiet fan
-Reliable graphical performance on the majority of modern games I've tested it with
-Runs the majority of games in my library on "High" to "Ultra," including titles such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Cons: -A bit underpowered for running many brand-new games with high graphical requirements on anything but High or Medium. Going to Ultra will result in a moderate to severe framerate hit
-Showing its age a bit, seeing as it's an HD 6000-era AMD card, which was almost 5 "generations" ago(2011)

Other Thoughts: The card I had been stuck with before this was a Radeon HD 4350, and this card was a HUGE step up. Being that it's a low-cost, low-wattage card, you shouldn't expect to max out very many Triple-A titles at 1920x1080 resolution or higher, but otherwise it gives great performance for a decent price. Just turn Anti-Aliasing and perhaps Ambient Occlusion and/or shadows down or off in the game's graphics options to squeeze out a higher framerate, if necessary.

Pros: Cheap, easy enough to use.

Cons: Underpowered, slow, glitchy, short battery life.

Other Thoughts: This tablet is good enough, I suppose, if you absolutely cannot afford anything else, but if you want a decent tablet, you're better off dropping maybe $100 more for something better. This tablet is slow, underpowered, glitchy, unresponsive. It's so slow and its touchscreen so unresponsive, in fact, that it often falls back into sleep mode while you're trying to slide to unlock. The touchscreen is inaccurate, the battery life is pitifully short, and after only a few months of ownership, the device now seems to be refusing to boot properly. This problem may eventually be solvable, but for now, I must give this item 2 out of 5 eggs, and that's being -very- generous.

Pros: High capacity, low price.

Cons: Began producing problems within minutes of being installed, partitioned and formatted.

Other Thoughts: It could've just been bad luck, but this drive gave me nothing but problems. After partitioning and formatting, I began attempting to transfer files and folders to the drive(mostly gaming-related items). As I was doing this, my drive suddenly "disappeared," refusing to show up in Windows, but still registering as active in my PC's BIOS. I searched for many solutions before eventually coming across the idea to use a "clean" command on the drive to wipe it, then re-partition and re-format it. I did all of this, losing a lot of data in the process, only for the drive to immediately "disappear" yet again, this time the second I made a new folder on the drive. This time, it didn't show up in my BIOS at all.

I can't recommend or condemn this drive, as sometimes hardware is just wonky, but my experience in trying to use this drive was rather unpleasant. Buy and use at your own risk.
