Pros: >Easy to customize macros
>Works in games that don't usually support input from more than the standard mouse buttons (Battlefield 3, in particular)
>Not too large, not too small
>Easy and quick custom weigh changes
Cons: >Partial USB 3.0 incompatibility (see below)
>On-the-fly profile changes take you out of the game screen (hardly an issue if you use each profile for a different game)
Other Thoughts: This mouse is great for being made by a little-known company.
However, my only gripe is that the macros and/or button settings cannot be updated when the mouse is plugged into a USB 3.0 port. For me, this means whenever I want to apply changes to my mouse, I have to unplug it from the I/O panel in the back and plug it into the front panel of the case.
TO BE CLEAR: the mouse and installed macros WILL work when plugged into a USB 3.0 port but CANNOT be updated while plugged into a USB 3.0 port. The macros can only be installed onto the mouse's onboard memory while the mouse is plugged into a USB 2.0 port.
Hopefully this helps some of those who are at a loss as to why they can't update their macros
Pros: Powerful card that stays very cool even under full load.
Relatively quiet fans even at 85% and higher.
Fairly easy to overclock, though doing so is far from necessary even for heavy loads.
Cons: Not as much overclocking headspace as other cards, but thats primarily due to the Keplar architecture.
Heavy card, causes a little sagging.
Included Asus GPU Tweak is "meh" at best.
Other Thoughts: I'll start off by repeating what everyone else is saying: the 4gb model of this card is unnecessary unless you are planning on running a multi-display setup. Or, in my case, you plan on running a second card in SLI later on down the road.
I am thoroughly impressed by this card.
At stock clocks, I am able to run Battlefield 3 on full ultra at 1080p and achieve a minimum frame rate of over 70FPS even under full load.
The only real issue I have is that the card is fairly hefty which causes one of the corners to sag a little bit. This is easily remedied by using a bit of string as another reviewer has mentioned.
The headspace for overclocking is lower than that of some other cards, though this is hardly an issue (unless you are one of those people who enjoys extreme overclocking). This card will power through nearly anything you throw at it even at stock clocks.
