This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 1.0" Black 4GB MP3 Player SDMX18R-004GK-A57
Pros: MADE TO LAST. I had to rate this product when I saw these are still available. I have had the same model, only a 2GB version, since they came out, some 8 years ago. I have used it and accidentally dropped it from the handlebars of my bike at full speed, on runs at the beach, and in my car as my primary portable mp3 player.
Easy - if you dislike apple software (anybody with a computer IQ >5) the sansa clip is true plug and play, Since 2004 i have used several software apps to send playlists to it. I was able to easily send files, and most importantly - playlists, from winamp or mediamonkey to the unit, without having to install or download additional software.
Cons: Once, the battery became detached from the wire inside, as I regularly drop it all over the place. I looked up instructions to unsnap cover, re-soldered the wire, and continue to use it.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking to use it as only an mp3 player, I really recommend the small green screen over the full color version (on the sansa clip snap model). It is easier somewhat to see in the car, or while running, than the higher resolution counterpart.
I have had apple products, and not only does
Pros: After a lot of research and finally buying it, I would recommend this card as a reasonably-priced upgrade for the casual or serious gamer on a budget. (and a free game to boot!)
As AnandTech describes it is targeted at those hoping to step up and play modern games, but cannot rationalize the full price of top-of-the-line gear. It is rated well in certain games as compared to competition. Find your benchmarks
The bitrate is slower, but AnandTech article explained how/why it was phased down from their faster cards. In some cases it may just do as well!
For a GTX 260 holder (thats a me) It is an excellent upgrade in my opinion because it draws less power, slightly smaller, runs cooler, and is a multi-generation jump if you want to be able to play games at high settings. This is what it was made and marketed for, and I believe it is a success.
Cons: Not necessarily a con, but I was looking forward to borderlands 2, but still got ACIII, which is sweet.
Other Thoughts: I had a GTX 260, got a xmas bonus, bought this card, and finally played BF3 like it is supposed to be played. With a slow SATA HD and 8 GB RAM (Phenom 4x 2.3ghz) and the new 660 ti at default, I just played at 32plyr in 1900x1200 maxed out graphics, while in chopper and taking fire I was between 45-60 fps according to EA precision. It got up to 70 deg C, but averaged much lower, and I have an old 2 small-fan case mind you. So overall... NOT BAD NICHOLAS!READ FULL REVIEW
