Pros: Plays most games on "decent" settings, even at 1920x1080. Guild Wars 2 is probably my most demanding game, and most settings are on "High" with this card and an i5-3570K (some higher like character texture quality, but no AA). Low power use; the above system draws 128W from its UPS while gaming. Fits in a low-profile case.
Cons: In a small case with poor airflow, the fan does get audible, but that's probably the fault of the case, so no -egg. I didn't buy this to play FPS titles on UltraMaxOhWOW settings, so no eggs off there either.
Other Thoughts: I try to be a "voice of Reason" in my recommendations, and this card well-illustrates that you don't "have to have" a $300 card (and a monster PSU) to enjoy almost any game. While I probably wouldn't want much less than this, I'm not "suffering" in the games I play.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: New Battery White Case Wireless Infrared 8 LED Light Lamp PIR Auto Sensor Motion
Pros: Very bright. Uses commonly-available AA cells.
Cons: Poorly packed by this seller; fortunately they arrived undamaged. No screws or Velcro included to mount them. If these weren't so useful, I'd take another egg off. No documentation at all.
Other Thoughts: I bought similar devices from another seller that came in their boxes, with documentation and mounting tape. These were absolutely no-frills. Still, they're too useful to take off more than one egg; unless you've already got night-lights in dark areas, these should be a must-have for safety and convenience.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Snowball iCE USB Microphone
Pros: The sound quality just on my voice was much better than on the cheap (e.g. $10) microphones I'd been using. I did not need to get right up on it either. For podcasting and similar uses, it is very fit for purpose. Plug and Play on Windows 7. The stand feels sturdy, and it is a good weight, so it won't fall over or slide around.
Cons: Huge; about the size of a softball. Has proprietary threading; i.e. you couldn't mount this on a standard tripod without finagling an adapter.
Other Thoughts: It has a pilot light on it, but it didn't bother me. I'd like to know if a mic is potentially "live." Works with Windows Recorder, Skype, and VoiceMeeter.
I have no regrets for this purchase.
