Pros: I was very happy with the graphical performance of the GPU.
Cons: Fan has two settings: Loud and Louder
Fan got even louder over time, then one day it became very quiet.
When my PC started rebooting without warning when ever I'd do something graphically intensive, I realized it had gotten quiet because the fan had failed and was often not spinning at all. This caused the GPU to reach temperatures over 100C within a matter of minutes, at which point my PC would restart.
Came here and saw similar reviews with XFX replying to those reviews talking about a free fan replacement. I emailed them but got no reply.
I will never buy another XFX product again.
Other Thoughts: I never thought I'd live to see the day when I had to buy a new GPU for a reason other than the fact that a new GPU was required to play the games I want to play. Sad that this otherwise fine GPU is now nearly worthless because something as simple as a fan can't be cheaply replaced on it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice design, long battery life, awesome English notification system (actually tells you "power on" or "connected" or "Battery medium").
Cons: Oddly, it doesn't notify you when it loses its connection to the phone with a "disconnected" message in your year. This is made worse by the fact that it has a habit of frequently disconnecting itself from your phone. This is made yet worse again by the fact that you have to switch the earpiece off and on and completely unpair it from the phone and put it into "scan mode" to get it to connect again.
If it disconnected itself but notified you and would automatically attempt to reconnect, I'd be okay with the connection issues. But it disconnects without any notification and then takes quite a bit of work to get it to connect again. The way it is now is just too unreliable. You could lose your connection in the middle of a call and just thing the call ended unexpectedly rather than realize the audio was going through the phone instead of the earpiece..
Other Thoughts: You'd think a Bluetooth earpiece would be able to get the bluetooth part right. I told my mother about this item because it was on a really good sale and she got one for herself. She also experiences the disconnection issues I mentioned.READ FULL REVIEW
