Pros: Cheaper than the ARRIS SB6183.
Pulls down 325Mbps and 22Mbps up on TWC's top tier here in Austin, TX.
Easy to install and setup.
No problems activating with TWC, took maybe 10 minutes on the phone with them.
Cons: Still fairly expensive, but it will pay for itself quickly enough since TWC upped their modem rental fee recently.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast at 1080p.
Cool and quiet.
Core overclocks well, RAM seems to be hit or miss though.
Great price, especially when paired with The Witcher 3 and a rebate.
Cons: Very long card at 12.3 inches. I had to modify the drive bay in my Antec 300 so that it would fit. It fit in my wife's Antec 900 without issue.
I've heard some definite coil whine, but it's not as bad as my previous 660ti and certainly not audible over moderate game volume.
The fans don't power off like they do on other models, but the fans are quiet when idling.
Hynix RAM leads to weaker overclocks. I ended up settling at 7.6Ghz, whereas the Samsung chips seem to have a better chance at 8Ghz.
3.5GB+512MB RAM configuration has me worried a bit about future games.
Other Thoughts: I am still using an older i5-2400, and I had gotten tired of having to turn down graphic settings and still having some framerate issues with my 660ti. I bought this card in anticipation of GTA V, and I am not disappointed with the performance delivered. This purchase will keep me moving along until I get around to upgrading my CPU/mobo.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, seeing sustained transfer speeds of 150MB/s to other 7200RPM drives. 5 year warranty (compared to 2 years on the cheaper Seagate). Great black Friday pricing. Lots of storage space.
Cons: The first one I received was dead on arrival. BIOS/Win7 would only see it sometimes, and Disk Management gave errors when trying to initialize it. Had to spend an extra $14 to ship back the drive for RMA. A bit noisy at times, but I am not too concerned about that.
Other Thoughts: I dropped an egg for getting a dud first and having to pay to send it back for replacement. Otherwise, this is a 5 egg product.READ FULL REVIEW
