I love these.
Pros: Comfortable. Affordable. Great sound quality. I upgraded from the HPA2 earforces that i bought a couple years back. These are way better and much cheaper.
Cons: It doesn't give me a car.
Overall Review: I'd definitely recommend to anyone who wants 5.1 surround sound and comfortable headset all in one to buy these.
Pros: Smaller than my sapphire 4870 I had originally. My original sapphire 4870 had eventually burnt itself out after 10 months of ownership due to a design flaw, but ran well when I did have it. I RMA'd through newegg and they recommended this as a replacement. Runs just as great if not a little better than my previous 4870 model.
Cons: Doesn't blow air out the back like traditional video cards. I recommend buying an external fan to blow air into your case or have really good case cooling. Other than that no cons.
Overall Review: Takes up less room than the sapphire tech 4870 I had. It's a discontinued model so I can't really give any references to other uses so they can compare designs. I'm running this on XP and I game heavily and underload it steadies out at 64-65 Celsius but once I quit gaming it quickly cools off thanks to my huge fan. I'd recommend this card for people who want the power of a 4870 in a smaller package.
