Most Favorable Review

Excellent version of the 6900 xt

Pros: Very very good thermals. Very good acoustics. The support bracket that comes with the card installs quite nicely and it doesn't mess up the mounting of any nearby cards. This version of the 6900 xt is a bit faster than most.

Cons: This card is hungry, the manufacturer and most reviewers recommend a 850w psu minimum and they are right. The card has 3, 8 pin power connectors which means it can draw like 525 watts plus whatever the rest of your system is going to use. I know all this isn't really a con but I only put it here because of the current market and availability of cards and processors so if someone ends up getting this in a shuffle just to get something they need to be ready to feed this beast or they are going to have brownouts.

Overall Review: I may be a bit biased because i wanted a 6900 xt but this card is incredible. Its a powerhouse that stays cool and quiet. Also the RGB doesn't go overboard and looks great. At first I thought the support bracket would be a con but after seeing how easy it went in my case and how it didn't even disrupt a card's backplate that it went over that thing is a total win because over time cards that don't deploy a solution like this will either damage the pci slot or you could possibly slowly seperate the cooler from the board which is more of a silent killer. I know its pricey but if you're just looking to game get a 6800 xt....if you WANT a 6900 xt this is a superior choice to most of its competitors.

Pros: super easy to install the drive and get it all together

Cons: the thermal pad should be a bit higher quality but its no better or worse that the stuff that motherboard manufacturers use

Overall Review: This thing is very very nice looking and works exactly as it should. I installed a few games on it and they all played perfectly(Dead by Daylight, World of Warcraft, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and a few others.) Its a good value and good quality, buy this one if u need this storage solution.

Very High Quality

Pros: Plug and play in every sense of the word, and the green feature is nice...I'm using it in my home so none of the cables are more than 50 feet to a wall outlet. Doesn't get hot.

Cons: built in wall mount hardware was a bit skinny

Overall Review: Most bang for the buck and has super low latency, just plug it in and go 1gbps!!!!

totally worth it

Pros: These things are pretty comfortable, there isn't any stress on my ears or nose keeping them on. They really take the fatigue out of extended computer/gaming use.

Cons: Only comes with a soft cotton bag, would have liked a hard case but i knew ahead of time they didn't come with one so not really a negative.

Overall Review: Whether you get a pair of these or a different set of Gunnars you really won't be disappointed in the quality of the relief they provide to extended use of monitors/tv.

great proc for the price
