Pros: This card was a great buy for the performance it offers. My games are running super fast at the highest settings.
Cons: VERY large. This is my first custom build, and I have no relative comparison for other cards, but make sure your case leaves room for everything else.
The power connectors are on the opposite side of the PCI connectors, RIGHT by the side of my medium-sized case. I had to do careful cable management to keep these cables from hitting the side fan in my RAIDMAX Seiran ATX-902WR.
Pros: Makes booting and running my programs AMAZINGLY fast. I boot windows in a matter of seconds. My games run very fast on it too.
I compared other brands before I picked this one, the specs are way better than any alternative in this price point and size.
Cons: It's so tiny compared to HDDs... oh that's not much of a con. Make sure your case has everything you need to mount it. I am using RAIDMAX Seiran ATX-902WR, which holds it just fine with no additional hardware.
Other Thoughts: If I had realized how great SSDs ran, I would've done away with HDD a long time ago.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
Pros: Everything is fast, but I haven't had much time for things to bog me down, and my PC build is fast in its own right.
Cons: Aggravating for desktop use, because this is VERY geared for tablet use and for selling Microsoft apps.
Word Starter is no longer included, which is reason enough for people like me to not want this OS.
NVIDIA gfx card clashes with OS's dual monitor setup.
my LG Blu-Ray drive (WH16NS40) has all kinds of issues. Windows Media Player won't even play my DVDs, or recognize my discs in the drive.
I have a back-lit keyboard that does not turn off when the computer goes to sleep on its own. I have to manually set the computer to sleep for this.
Other Thoughts: I bought this based on it taking less resources to run than 7 does, but if I'd realized how much of an annoyance this OS was in comparison, I would've stuck with 7 in a heartbeat.READ FULL REVIEW
