Still got a bad one after the date set by Asus as to when they would be fixed.3/10/2020 5:32:37 PM

Pros: When it doesn't overheat it plays any game I want to.

Cons: Overheats quickly is more demanding games. Supposedly cards sold after January 20th 2020 would not have the heatsink issue, but the one I received did. The drivers for the card are not good. It would constantly crash when running a game with DX12, but when I made it run in DX11 things were fine and didn't black screen/crash.

Overall Review: If you can get one of the newer versions of the card I'm sure it will be amazing.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer, It is unfortunate that your video card is having issues even after January. Do you have the serial # of your card? Initial batches of our Strix RX5700-series cards were torqued to 30-40 PSI based on AMD'S baseline recommendation, we have since then performed extended R&D testing to find the optimal PSI range and have developed new mounting screws. All Strix RX-5700 series cards shipped from January 2020 forward will have the new mounting screens in place. We are committed to supporting our members, so if you happen to have the old batch, we would like to offer the same benefits of the new mounting screws. Starting April 2020, just contact your nearest ASUS service center and we'll gladly perform the fix. Thanks for understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at I'm here to assist our customers with our products and dedicated in bringing a resolution to all issues that they may come across. Your case for reference is #N200329890 ​ Thanks for choosing ASUS Regards, Justin ASUS Customer Loyalty - US Support
Good video card for HTPC7/24/2014 10:53:55 PM

Pros: Much better than graphics from the CPU. Performs much better than I thought it would. Takes a load off the processor when decoding video files when viewing, it allows the CPU to just work on the decoding. It will also play games(i.e. WoW) on good settings. Not having the requirement of a pci 6/8 pin power connector is why I purchased it.

Cons: none

Pros: I'm sure it would be a very fast drive if it wasn't DOA. Newegg was quick to respond and issue a RMA.

Cons: DOA

Decent GPS Device2/7/2008 12:27:36 PM

Pros: Removal of the external antenna is nice from the previous models.

Cons: My device has the Sirf Chipset and still takes 1+ minute on startup to find my location. It also would be nice if it showed your speed while it was giving directions.

Great Speaker System2/7/2008 7:39:15 AM

Pros: This system has great sound reproduction. It will get quite loud without emitting bad quality sound. The headphone jack on the control unit is really nice.

Cons: I wish the connections for the S/PDIF & Optical in were on the Sub like the speaker connections.

Overall Review: Going from an old Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 system to this was like when I went from a CRT to a LCD.
