Pros: Amazing, jaw dropping image quality! Refresh is fast enough for running flight sims and non-twitch master gaming. Comes with 6' DP, DVI-D, HMDI, and VGA (what?) cables, all which are good quality. The high quality and easily adjustable stand itself is worth $100 IMO.

Cons: If you need more more that 60 hz to be satisfied, I doubt you would be even reading this; same goes for 25". DVI-D connection only supports 2560x1440, though no big deal. Not always on sale :-(

Other Thoughts: Mine arrived tax free with free 3 day shipping from NYC in perfectly working with zero dead/stuck pixels and no backlight bleed issues. Took about 10 minutes from opening the box to using on my computer. Seems other are have quality problems, but not here. Got mine on sale for $279; 0% buyers remorse at this price. Makes the 24" 1920x1080 panel it replaced look like a kid's toy. Driving this with a new gtx 1070, which may be a bit of overkill, but why not run everything at max settings...right?


Pros: - Stupendous performance upgrade (80%) from my once mighty 780 gtx
- Runs cool(ish) and quiet! Lower power draw helps too
- Card size: EVGA is the only custom cooler equipped card that will fit in my cramped case
- 8GB ram!
- EVGA customer service

Cons: - Styling leaves much to be desired (yes this ONLY is my opinion)
- Packaging is sadly cheap! Com'on EGVA, take a lesson from MSI: for the premium price it should not be packaged in a flimsy blister pack clamshell
- Nvidia initial lower 1070 price announcement seems meaningless, at least for now
- Potential DPC Latency issues: a hot-fix driver is out that kind of fixes it, but does not solve the problem for those twitch masters that must run at 150+ fps (though not my problem)

Other Thoughts: I update my gcard about every 2 years, and choosing a 1070 gtx was a no brainer for all my above pros. My last EVGA gcard was a 8800 gts 512, since then (7 years back) all my gcards have been MSI. The only reason I went with EGVA is the MSI TF 1070 card is too big for my case. But that's not a big deal for all similarly clocked 1070s are pretty much alike performance-wise, and I do know about and have experience with EVGA's suburb customer service for which I'm glad to be back in their fold. Considered the FTW card but I could not see why I needed its extra features; I don't plan to overclock (except to humor myself with a few benchmark scores). Ended up buying my gcard at a local retailer that price matched NewEgg, otherwise I would have gladly purchased here and waited for shipping. Docked 1 egg for my cons, which I'm sure will draw ire from most...but hey, seriously, that packaging sucks!

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Updates my archaic 7 year old case:
2 front USB 3.0 ports
2 fan controllers
Fits in an external 3.5" bay slot

Cons: An e-sata port would have been far more useful that the USB 2.0 ports.

This end-of-lifes my existing 3.5" 4 fan controller front panel header (with only 2 case fans needing such control). Worth selling online perhaps?

Other Thoughts: Putting 2 fans controllers in the mix with 2 USB 3.0 ports is almost too good to be true, though the extra USB 2.0 ports are overkill in my case (pun intended) and I imagine this is almost universally true. I might not even bother to connect those headers. An e-stat port instead would have been WINNING!
