Pros: I bought this to replace my previous laptop (also a Toshiba) that finally stopped working after 7 years of heavy use. Things I like about this model are:
- Good performance
- Large screen
- Good battery life
- Decent keyboard response
- Runs relatively cool, even while gaming
Cons: The main drawbacks I've found are:
- Windows 8. (I've since upgraded to 8.1, but I still dislike this OS version)
- No touch screen (Having this might have made the default Win8 install more tolerable)
- Touchpad sometimes stops working (suspect this might be related to ESD)
- Wish the power cable plugged into the back instead of the side. With the current position, this leads to situations where it can easily strike an arm rest, possibly dislodging cord or breaking the connector.
Other Thoughts: This laptop offers good performance for a relatively low price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this to replace a PS in a mid-size tower used for a media server and for some gaming.
Cons: The 3 molex connectors are on a single cable and unfortunately it's about 8 inches too short to reach both the ATAPI DVD (near the top front of the case) and the USB3.0 add-on card in the PCI Expressx1 slot power connector (in the lower half of the case toward the back, under the gfx card)
Other Thoughts: For PCs that have certain cabling / connector needs, a modular supply may be a better option.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Purchased this to upgrade a media server PC that also is used to do some gaming on a 52-inch LCD. The high performance / low power ratio was exactly what I've been looking for.
Cons: The PC was running with a 300 watt supply. I was hopeful that since this card had a lower wattage rating than the prior video card that the PS would be able to handle it. However, after about 30 minutes of gaming, the machine shut-down unexpectedly. The simultaneous draw from the GPU, CPU and HD accesses were apparently just over the 300-watt limit of the old supply. The specs for this card recommend using 400-watt supply, so this isn't a fault of the video card. This just reinforces EVGA's recommendation. The fact that this card is slightly over-clocked from the reference models of the GTX 750 Ti may explain why it needs a bit more power than some models.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this card.READ FULL REVIEW
