Pros: Was a great card - while it worked. Not sure if the 3 year warranty is a Pro. See below.
Cons: A three year warranty is great. However a 6 to 8 week turnaround time borders on the unacceptable. Furthermore, Gigabyte technicians appear incapable of diagnosing or even repairing hardware problems. No one contacted me to ask for my troubleshooting information. Repairs were not identified by technicians. From my perspective it appears I spent $15 to ship a defective card on a road trip across the country.
Other Thoughts: Just in case someone from Gigabyte sees this post:
My RMA# is: RMA# USA-1481465
Windows 7 disables card with the following "Windows has stopped this device because it has
reported problems. (Code 43)". Even after it was "repaired" by Gigabyte "technicians".
I sent the card in to Gigabyte to be repaired under the 3 year warranty. The RMA process
was convoluted in places and took an extraordinarily long time - nearly 6 weeks.
Before sending the card in for repair, I did extensive troubleshooting by placing the card
in multiple Windows 7 machines to verify it was indeed defective. After many weeks of
waiting for the card to be "repaired" and returned, I received the card with a "minor
repair" completed per Gigabyte RMA site. There was no explanation of what the "repair"
actually was. A visual inspection of the card prior to shipment and post receipt implies
nothing was actually repaired.
The "repaired" card was installed in a Windows 7 machine. Windows immediately reported the
card as having an issue on boot up. I installed the nVidia drivers anyway, just in case.
Windows refused to start the driver because the card reported an issue.
I downloaded the Microsoft hardware resolution program. The program again identified the
card as defective and tried to reinstall the card and drivers. Both failed, again. I'll
be happy to share the Microsoft generated report and screenshtos of the card failing.
The card is defective. I still have over 2 years on the warranty and no faith in Gigabyte
being able to repair a clearly defective card. I use this card for simulations.
This review is from: Samsung HM1700 Black Bluetooth Headset
Pros: Excellent sound and good controls
Cons: Won't stay connected. Will randomly disconnect in the middle of a conversation or while listening to music. Then it tries to reconnect while you're still in the conversation. Had to go back to the older Samsung bluetooth set that DOES NOT randomly disconnect.
Other Thoughts: Hopefully I have a bad headset and a replacement will work fine. I am using a Motorola Droid/Milestone. Google searches did not yield any known compatibility issuesREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent multifunction printer. Impressed with printer features including the firmware capabilities to print. Screen is nice. Power saving feature. Integrated with network seamlessly. Printouts look good. Software and drivers are excellent so far.
Cons: While the software is excellent it still is bloated. Ink tanks are small - not looking forward to replacing those if this is used a lot.READ FULL REVIEW
