Pros: Great price, performance and very quit.
Cons: I purchased an MSI 560 Ti SC 2Gig card from Newegg less than a month ago. Last week I noticed the card was heating up during game play. I opened the case and saw one of the fans was not spinning. I then realize the fan was hitting the card shroud. I nudge the fan a little and it starts to spin and then get stuck again. One of the fins keeps hitting the shroud.I nudge the card again and the same thing happens. The fan felt very soft too like the heat from the card may have soften the plastic. After a final nudge the fin that was hitting the shroud and causing it to get stuck comes flying out.
I complete an RMA online for a refund. I clearly indicate what the issue was and it gets "approved". I send in the card and now they say they decline the RMA due to damage. The card is less than 30 days and it got damaged because of a design flaw. Why did you approve my RMA when I clearly stated what happened from the get go.
Other Thoughts: Not happy with Newegg for wasting my time. Now lets see if MSI will replace it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server (top performance review at smallnetbuilder.com)
Pros: I purchased this router after reading the great reviews. I have 16 devices connected and my prior router would drop the wireless clients. Main reason for getting this router was the two USB ports. I wanted to connect an external drive and printer
Cons: Printers supported are very limited. When it relates to the external drive access it is hit and miss. Whenever I try to use the FTP option, this caused the router to be inaccessible. I have to restart. Accessing the shared drive is also very slow.
Other Thoughts: Hope they get these issues resolved with a firmware upgrade. Luckily I dont have a need to print much or access the FTP features any more but if I did, I would be angry. Overall router is very cool looking and it stays cool as well. No more wireless drops. Excellant for gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI Gift - NBA2K11 PC GAME
Pros: Got it with my purchase of the MSI 560 Ti. I dont like sports games. Would have been better to get Batman (although it does not work in DX11) or some other game
Cons: Not everyone is in to sports games
Other Thoughts: It was free but will see if a friend is interested in buying it. They should allow you to pick from two options for those of us that dont like sports or simply may by more than one card. Why would I want two copies of a game I dont intend to install?READ FULL REVIEW
