Pros: The setup on this drive was super easy. Because of the included imaging software (Samsung Data Migration), I had no downtime or OS reinstall. This worked perfectly on my Windows 10 build. Highly recommend this drive just for the time it saved me in reinstallation alone!
Other Thoughts: To me, one ssd drive is just the same as any other, with little variation in the technology. With that in mind, I go for warranty and perk software like samsung data migration and samsung Magician. The data migration was incredibly simple, with no downtime and the magician software helped me tune the OS and bios for the drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I'm playing Ark on medium to high settings. Comparing that to Nvidia's 980ti at epic with the same framerate makes this card exactly what I asked for. A very decent mid-range card. I was not disappointed with the quality of the card.
Cons: Nearly nocked of an egg for the terrible software that is catalyst. After coming over from nvidia and using geforce experience, I didn't realize how deeply I was spoiled. I'm finding the catalyst control center to not be very intuitive.
Make sure you have two pci express power cords in the back of your PSU. Otherwise, you're going to be deeply disapointed. I got lucky.
Other Thoughts: No backplate. So what. Who the heck really needs a backplate. Plug in your PCi power cord and get on with life. If you're looking for a fair priced mid-range card and are tired of paying the nvidia "I'm so awesome" tax. Look no further. I'm happy as a clam with it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This has nearly every connector including USB. IT DOES NOT HAVE DVI. The screen is big at 1200. Still a 1080 movie and game fit fine in letterbox. The text on this monitor was very sharp and clear. Easy on my programming eyes. Ignore the people talking about the non-intuitive controls. Best controls I've played with in a long time. My terminal sessions all looked fantastic.
Cons: It just wasn't bright enough and the colors were washed out and not vivid. I tried playing with the controls to brighten it up and also make the colors come in brighter. It just didn't happen. I was really excited about this monitor. It carried a good brand name. The price was competitive and I really wanted the extra room. However, a comparable asus monitor side by side had much better color depth.
A good choice for people that just need to read text and/or program. Solid business monitor.
Other Thoughts: This did not meet my needs as a gamer, youtuber, and movie watcher. This did meet my business needs of programming, reading help manuals and displaying terminals.READ FULL REVIEW
