Pros: I was browsing video cards on Newegg and stumbled across the 6970. Paid less than the current listed price making a card of this caliber an absolute steal. Easy install. CD wasn't warped but get the latest AMD drivers and control panel from AMD anyway. The card handles Dragon Age Inquisition on a mix of Ultra and High settings by default. Couldn't tell you the frame rates but plays as smooth as butter on default settings. The card is actually quieter than I expected but I stepped down from two noisy 6870s in crossfire. Micro stutter made DA:I and other games unplayable so I went the single card route. Make sure you have at least a 750 watt PSU with an 8 and 6 pin power connectors. If you lack the connectors, Sapphire provides adapters in the box. This is a long card so make sure you have the case to accommodate it.
Cons: None really except Newegg didn't do their usual bang-up job of packaging the card in the shipping box. Rather than shroud the retail box in packing material before putting it in the shipping box, Newegg elected to lay just a single layer of packing material over the top of the retail box and no protection on the bottom. Fortunately the package arrived in good shape and hadn't been crushed.
Other Thoughts: I can't stress enough the price to performance ratio. Even at the current price you can't go wrong if you have the case and PSU to accommodate this card. Not as powerful as two 6870s in Xfire but no microstutter issues either.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AZIO KB501 L70 Backlit Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Blue back light just bright enough to see what you're doing but not so bright as to be annoying when gaming in a darkened room. Keys have a good feel. Overall a nice keyboard for gaming and general use. It was a real decent value while it was on sale.
Cons: Price jumped from thirty to seventy-two bucks. Major ouch! Keyboard isn't worth that much bread...so get an M/S Sidewinder instead. USB cable is short. Plan on buying an USB extension cable if you're a couch gamer.
Other Thoughts: The item was well packaged and protected by Newegg's shipping folks. And it arrived on time and undamaged. Keyboard worked out of the box with no hitches.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: G.SKILL 32GB microSDHC Flash Card w/ SD Adapter Model FF-TSDG32GA-C10
Pros: For anyone who wants to know, my daughter said the memory works great in her new Samsung Tab 3.8 tablet.
Cons: Bought two Samsung Tab 3.8 tablets, one for my daughter and one for wife because the vastly superior Asus tablet counter-part didn't sport any expandable memory slots.
Other Thoughts: Newegg packaged the memory and other items very well and everything arrived on time and undamaged.READ FULL REVIEW
