Pros: Everything I need for gaming @ 1080, mighty quiet unless pushed to the limit, small form-factor, sips power like a lady, looks mighty good in a small case build.
Cons: Sad that it cannot be SLI`ed, but oh well.
Other Thoughts: If I could justify the price of a 1070 for the amount of gaming I do, or the resolution I use (1080) then I would have bought one. But for me this works just fine, out benchmarks the 970, and should be all I need for a while. The 6 GB RAM is excellent as well, and should serve me for a long time.
For anyone doing an mATX/miniITX build that wants the most performance in the smallest size, you do not need to look any further. The only way to beat this is by water cooling a higher priced card, so if you are debating the cost or size just stop now and hit the Ad to Cart button. Unless you are waiting for it to be back in stock, then keep waiting, it`s worth every penny.
Pros: This drive got good reviews, not to mention the good specs, add to that the nice style and I was sold. Once I got it - imaged it (Macrium Reflect - it`s FREE!!) and fired up my pc, the next and only thing to do was benchmark it and see what I bought. Here are the official #`s:

That`s good enough for me to give it 5 eggs for sure.
Cons: An SSD mounting bracket would be nice, but I knew it did not come with one, so not a real disappointment.
Other Thoughts: If it had a little better sale price it would be a steal, but if you are thinking about buying it.....pull the trigger.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kensington KeyFolio Pro 2 Keyboard/Cover Case (Folio) for 10" Tablet PC - Black
Pros: The first happy surprise I found was that the keys are larger than I had expected. While the board is small, the structure is well thought out - opinion based, not that everybody will agree. The battery life is excellent as I found out by forgetting to shut it off many times. Pre-set keys jump you to the important stuff - opinion based.
Setup of the Bluetooth was so easy my dead grandmother could do it from the grave!
Cons: While I do have some cons, they are not impossible to overcome for the most part.
First-I am using this with a Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, and the charging port is center-bottom, making it hard to impossible to connect the charging cable unless you get a 90 degree adapter.
Second-The provided rubber corners to hold the tablet in place (2 different sets provided) do an excellent job, but I used the smaller set so they did not interfere with any viewing areas. The other set was too bulky, and covered part of the viewing surface. However, it does not matter which set I use (tried both) access to power button, volume, headphone port, were not easily accessible. Also, they do not move since there is excellent quality Velcro to hold them in place, but it is almost impossible to place the corner anchors positioned on the tablet, then on the folio without them being slightly off, leaving a small amount of play in the positioning of the tablet. But, this does not make it less secure, and I am picky about this, so it is also opinion based.
Third-I bought a surface protector for the tablet which I installed right away, and I am glad I did. The case & keyboard do move across the tablet when closed, which did scratch the protective cover. This is also an issue that is easy to deal with, just flip the keyboard over when done, there are rubber feet on the bottom which will not harm the surface of the tablet.
See Other Thoughts for the bottom line, since these "Cons" are not really an issue.
Other Thoughts: While I did list cons, there are none that make this case/keyboard any less functional, or less desirable when being considered for purchase.
No product is perfect for all people, and you mileage may vary.
There are many reasons to buy this setup, and I am so happy I did. In addition to my tablet purchase, this was the best add-on I could have wanted or needed. This is one product I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone with a 10.1 tablet no matter the brand, and overall I am 100% satisfied.
