Blu Dash 4.5 D310A Black 3G Quad-Core 1.2GHz Unlocked GSM Dual-SIM Android Cell Phone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought this phone back in February and it's been amazing since. I use it to store and view PDFs of various manuals and to play games using the Google play store and Visual Boy Advance. It works wonderfully for everything, the quad-core processor is a good choice. The screen is bright and responsive, the sound quality in calls and ringtones is rather high. The dual SIM option has served me well, I keep At&t in the phone alongside Boost. Between the two, I'm never out of service range.

Cons: About a month ago, the phone began turning off randomly. I have noticed that when it shuts off, it is sometimes difficult to turn back on. While I have the phone plugged in, it works fine. I believe that the phone's battery is to blame, and as a result, warn anyone purchasing this model to take care to not put pressure on the battery plate.

Other Thoughts: I'm really impressed with a phone in this price range having only such a seemingly minor issue. I doubt I will need a warranty exchange, but am frustrated that the battery needs to be replaced due to wear and tear damage after only about 6 months.

Huawei Fusion 2 U8665 Black 3G 800MHz Unlocked GSM Android Cell Phone
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for. 02/02/2014

This review is from: Huawei Fusion 2 U8665 Black 3G 800MHz Unlocked GSM Android Cell Phone

Pros: Good durability and materials, very nice scratch- and shatter-resistant screen. Android 2.3 is user friendly, stable, and easy to work with. Navigation through the menus and screens was a breeze, and the scrolling wallpaper feature was rather nifty.

Cons: Unfortunately, this model became a rather large pain closer to 8-9 months of ownership. The SIM card slot became unstable, and would at this point require soldering the contacts to make the phone usable again. At first it was a minor inconvenience, the phone simply needed to be power cycled. However, the issue turned into having to remove the battery and re-seating the SIM card every few minutes in order to use the phone.

Other Thoughts: I can recommend this phone to anyone new to smart phones looking for an inexpensive model. However, be warned that the model is inexpensive for a reason, and won't last a long period of time.

Galaxy 56NGH6HS3KXZ GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card was really an amazing deal for the price I paid. I purchased two to SLI into a very nice build recently, and love them to death. Everything defaults to 100% using the cards without auxillery settings, and with the use of a bridge, the SLI setup was a breeze. The fans are rather quiet, and the system stays cool without much effort. On top of that, I have been able to play several games on Maximum settings with at or better than 60 fps on low gpu combined usage (around 40-50%), including World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV, Borderlands, Dead Island, and more. I can see myself still using these cards well in 5 years' time. Well worth the buy for an SLI system. The rebate was also quick and painless, and I recieved both within a few days.

Cons: The physical installation in my tower was somewhat troublesome. These cards seemed rather bulky compared to other cards in the size range, and I needed to apply a bit of force to seat the screw properly. I'll admit, that was more poor design on the tower, but that was the only problem I've had with these cards.

Other Thoughts: Be careful, as these cards require two PCI power connections each. They work fine with 6+2 connectors, but you will need at least 4 6 or 6+2 connectors to use 2 in your system.
