Pros: This is the highest quality GPU that i have ever owned from any company bar none. this thing reeks of quality from the box to the look to the materials. You would be hard pressed to find another GTX 980 non ref card that is any better than this period. This card runs cool, and overclocks like a champ for a technical standpoint. Both my cards appear to have been binned as the ascii is 79 and 82 respectively which seems better than most Ive seen that are in the 60s. From an visual perspective, this thing exudes bling! Carbon fiber coated fan shroud , center intake fan flanked by a fan on each side that pulls the heat away from the card. Want lighting? BANG Green when the card is not at load and red when it is... It lights up the entire inside of the case. Smaller red, green and blue leds blink with load and power delivery near the end of the card. I cannot say enough about this card , the design or Zotac. TOP NOTCH CARD. GREAT JOB
Great Video.. Not so great Mouse & Keyboard support
Pros: Incredible video. This solved ALL my other issues I was experiencing with other KVM switches...
Cons: Unfortunately it created new ones. I have a Logitech G15 and a Logitech G7 mouse. when plugged into the mouse and keyboard USB ports they provide WONKY behavior! I am switching between a Mac and a PC. When plugged into the peripherial ports they function better but then I look Hotkey ability on the G15. VERY frustrating...
Overall Review: Just be aware of the hardware you are connecting..
Pros: Best headset ive owned hands down. At $69.99 this is an absolutely steal. Paired with a good discrete sound card such as the Sound Blaster Z these are almost unbeatable at the price point. They are also super comfortable with a great build quality.
Cons: None. you're a poopy face if you don't buy these
Pros: For the $649 price you be cra cra if you pay more for ANY of the other cards. This thing overclock s identical to any other card for sale here with the modded bios available online. It is reference meaning you can always waterblock it if you so choose down the road.
Cons: Ref blower gets load at 80-100% but you know that going in. Headphones solve this issue
BEST in its Class BAR NONE
Pros: Core i5 + ATI 5650 + 1366 x 768 LED backlit screen = Sensational Gaming laptop Well built and looks nice, and is whisper quiet even at full load. In fact I hear the fan one time - a 1 second burst to cool and back to silence.
Cons: Chicklet keyboard is flat and doesnt feel super sturdy but its not terrible
Overall Review: Other than that this machince BURIES anything even close to it. I did a ton of research prior to. Grab it, youll be very pleased you did
