Pros: Great on power at idle.
Not a bad card really.
In SLI this would probably be great with 3x1080p monitors.
Cons: Was hoping for a little more. At 1440p I'd go for the 670 or 770, both are better than this. See other thoughts...
Other Thoughts: I got this as a Warranty exchange for a GTX580 1.5gb. On paper this is on par with that, and it is mostly. I still feel the 580 is overall a stronger card. I "had" 2 580's fortunately not in SLI but I was hoping I could do that in the future as I upgraded. I also have a GTX670 2gb and that card is better than this one in every respect. I'd have to say by at least %30. You can still get the 670 for less than this one. The 770 will blow this away. Also after testing at 1440p nothing used more than 2gb VRAM. I also noticed it states that 2gb is dedicated and 2gb is shared. Whatever that means, might be more for SLI? I'll probably put this in my HTPC as I have room and it's got good power consumption on idle. Hopefully nvidia has the sound over HDMI issues worked out with this. The GTX670 wouldn't always turn on the sound over HDMI when the TV came on.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
Pros: Sounds great. Good range. Can use multiple headsets in same house as long as they aren't too close to each other.
Cons: There's a major design flaw. The plastic covers that go over the pivot point of the ear cups break. I have 3 of these and two have broken the same exact way. After doing some research it's a common problem. I would not suggest purchasing these because they will most likely break at some point. Also they do cut out occasionally, but come right back on.
Other Thoughts: These were a 4 star headset to me before they began breaking. I purchased three sets I like them so much. I RMA'd one set and as soon as I got that one back a second one is now broke. I'll keep returning them as long as there is a warranty. Logitech pays for the shipping so at least they are replacing them at no cost. Once that is done I'll have to figure out a way to permanently mount the cup to the headband.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Linksys LINK-M20-RM Valet Plus Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Installed DD-WRT mini on this and seems to be running fine. Had some issues with getting the right version on it, see below. Replaced an old Linksys WRT54GL, mainly for the wireless N. Interface is much more responsive probably because the faster processor. Tested a file transfer over wireless and was getting ~7MB/sec @ 30' where I was getting ~2MB with the old router.
Cons: Signal to other devices at 60' seems a little low, but they seem to be functioning without issue. Unit does get a little warm, hope it lasts. For a shell shocker deal I figured it was worth a shot.
Other Thoughts: DD-WRT 15508M NEW D-2 K2.6 Eko Mini installed. Versions after 15760 disable the "loopback" ability which can cause problems if you run something like an internal game server. There are workarounds for later DD-WRT versions if you're familiar with adding commands to the firmware. Also if you search around you'll find that other DD-WRT packages with things like VPN support will also work with this router.READ FULL REVIEW
