Pros: Everything worked and is quiet when burning or reading. Fit perfectly in my father-in-law's old HP mid-tower. Didn't have to load any drivers, plug and play.
Cons: N/AREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Slim border to fit under my old computer hutch where other monitors would fail to go. Packaged nice to withstand the travel. No damage when I opened the box. Plugged it in and used the DVI to HDMI cable and everything worked. No dead pixels. All buttons worked once you get to know how to use them. Hopefully it will give me long lasting monitor life.
Cons: For the non-tech person, it will be hard to figure out how to use the monitor since it only includes a quick startup guide but doesn't go into detail on what functions do what for the screen. I have an AMD 7870 card and had to go to the Catalyst Control Center to adjust the overscan so the picture goes to the border all around. If you don't do this, you will be left with 1 1/2" borders of black screen around your windows, games, etc. The speakers are your typical so-so, but I won't be using them so no problem there.
Other Thoughts: I bought this for $204 after a promo code, watching the pricing and hopefully getting the $30 rebate so this was a steal of a deal for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Was real simple to install. Did not use the drivers from the CD packaged with the card. I went the AMD site and downloaded the latest and greatest and everything worked well. In comparison to my Sapphire 4870 1gig card, the picture was pretty much the same. The big difference was in the frame rates. With everything on max, it increased the frames by 30 over the 4870.
Cons: This card is long so you better have a nice tower case to fit it in. I have the Antec 1200 so no worries there. I think the card measures 11 inches long.
Other Thoughts: So far so good. This is my second Sapphire card and haven't been displeased.READ FULL REVIEW
