Pros: Excellent FPS and smooth gameplay. Came with 3 games via the AMD promotion, only one of which I ended up playing (Alien Isolation).
Cons: Hate and I mean HATE Catalyst software and especially AMD Evolve bloatware. Don't get me started on unreliable drivers. Never had issue with Nvidia in my life.
Had an issue where no matter what monitor I plugged in to wither DVI output the primary would randomly SCRAMBLE when I moused over to my secondary monitor. I had to reboot to get the darn screen back to normal. HDMI simply would not work at all! (Found that out after the 30 days were up). Epic failure and had no luck finding a solution via support.
Other Thoughts: I sent VERY detailed info and the responses I got indicated that support had ignored much of what I told them. They only replied 3 times then stopped responding. Should have just returned the card but decided to keep trying to troubleshoot on my own and ended up past 30 days. So I boxed it up and will try and sell it. Such a waste of time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Still going strong, everything labeled and easy to read, cables covered with a nice material, not too stiff, has a bad to store all the cables in (see the cons below though).
Cons: I didn't notice this when I got it 5 months ago because I only owned one graphics card at a time. I just bought a new GPU and when I went to pair them up I discovered that 2 of the GPU power cables are completely missing. I checked the box to see how many were supposed to be included and sure enough there is supposed to be 4 6+2 PCI-E VGA cables, but my PSU only came with 2 in the box. Someone goofed at EVGA and so I am knocking off 1 star.
Other Thoughts: I noticed that they never bothered to respond to my previous review detailing why I DID meet all of their rebate requirements. This indicates to me that they have no interest in doing the right thing.
Seems a rarity when EVGA honors it's rebates (I envy those of you who got yours). I don't care how well you meet the criteria (I met them all!), they are looking for any excuse not to give it to you to make that extra bit of profit.
This review is from: Cloer 5218NA 12-Cup Bitterness Eliminating Coffee Maker, Stainless Steel/Black
Pros: Gets very hot, has controls that are pretty easy to understand right off the bat. Fits normal v shaped metal filter baskets (cheap machines then to use a flatter version). Has a space for a charcoal water filter (big one), which is handy if you have bad tap water like me.
Cons: I'm used to keeping a pot of coffee hot while I work, so I wanted to keep it turned on longer than 2 hours. I have never encountered a coffee maker that lacked an manual "ON" function in order to keep a pot hot (I buy several a year). This coffee maker breaks the norm.
The instructions said that one can turn it on manually if the water reservoir is removed or the "regulating float is not working properly" But the kicker is, you can't just turn it on; you still have to add enough water to brew coffee--reservoir or no reservoir. Even then, it didn't always work with the unit I received. I had to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to respond on several occasions (oh, I used this thing a lot for the first couple of days.)
On top of that, this gets so hot that MOST of the water used for brewing the coffee frequently escapes via the steam vent, leaving the pot only 1/3 full, if that much!. This happened almost every time I used it. I even tried filling it with ICE WATER to start, but it still turned most of it into vapor that never passed through the coffee grounds.
This is a very strange machine. I'm glad some people got a working unit, but mine is just dysfunctional and I cannot use it. But see below! :)
Other Thoughts: I bought this from DealYard. When I called them and told them what was going on (there was another problem as well, but I don't have time to get into it) they immediately offered me a refund, no hesitation. Unfortunately, they don't carry any other full-sized coffee makers (they just have a couple Mr. Coffee Latte makers), otherwise I would have used the money to buy something else from them. But I'll keep an eye out for their other items for sale n the future.READ FULL REVIEW
