Pros: it has a webcam
pretty thin bezels
nice stand with cable management
Matte finish for zero glare
Cons: during games that display text while you walk/run i get some pretty significant ghosting
webcam works but its just good enough for windows hello
cant seem to get the integrated mic to work
speakers sound like two tin cans attached by string
Overall Review: If youre using this mainly for internet browsing, movie watching at the desk or some moderate gaming its not too bad outside of the terrible speakers and the ghosting issue i seem to be having. It gets the Job done and it looks good on any desk. Colors are vibrant but blacks tend to be washed out a little bit.
Pros: It runs any game i throw at it
stays pretty cool even in a SFF case
Cons: YMMV but my card has some pretty nasty coil whine
fans are always at a minimum of 34%
anything over 40% fan speed is super loud, although i have this in a Cooler Master Elite 130 and it just barely makes the side panel clearance
Overall Review: if you have a regular ATX or Micro ATX case, this card will do you just fine. However, be warry of if you try to use it in a SFF build like mine. Since my case only allows for a single 120mm or 140mm fan at the front, i dont get a lot of airflow in my case. So during some intensive games like Evil Within 2 or Final Fantasy XV i have to turn my headset all the way up to drone out the coil whine and the loud fans.
