Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) 18.1 Megapixel - 3.2
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Camera, be sure product is US Spec 12/27/2014

This review is from: Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) 18.1 Megapixel - 3.2" LCD Screen

Pros: Fast, precise auto-focus, outstanding low light performance, solid construction, dual CF card slots, unique situational focus modes, dual processors with one processor dedicated to focusing. Canon has an $800.00 rebate good until 03JAN2015 on the US spec 1DX.

Cons: Expensive, complex, full-size camera.

Other Thoughts: I also own a Nikon D3 for comparison. The Canon's auto-focus and low light performance are noticeably improved over the Nikon.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 GV-N970WF3OC-4GD 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Dual DVI, three DisplayPort, and one HDMI on a GTX970---great for SLI if desired later on. Works well with both a 4k monitor and a 2550x1400 monitor attached. Visual performance on par with a watercooled GTX Titan which I have in another computer.

Cons: Retail box had no shrink wrapping and inner ESD packaging had no tamper-proof seal. Only one of the two DVI connectors will support 2550x1440 output.

Other Thoughts: I was actually hesitant to install the card wondering if I had received a returned card although I had paid full price for a new, unopened, card. The card still had the plastic around the fans and the plastic covers on the PCI-Express edge connector (a nice touch) and the IO ports. This is the first time I have received a new card with no original shrink wrapping.

Corsair Obsidian Series 250D (CC-9011047-WW) Black Aluminum / Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Plenty of cooling, excellent overall design, can use full size ATX power supply.

Cons: Only has two USB 3.0 ports, no motherboard alignment pin like other Corsair cases have. DVD drive bezel was a tight fit in the cutout.

Other Thoughts: If you don't have the latest motherboard with a USB 3.0 header, you will be stuck with only the ports on the IO panel of the motherboard which, in my case required an external USB hub to meet my requirements.
