Good with some frustrations
Pros: *Great resolution *Excellent daylight pictures *Decent low light pictures *Adjustable flash level *Excellent clarity and frame rate in movie mode *AA batteries are easy to swap on the go.
Cons: *Pictures tended to over expose a little bit. Nothing that basic photo editing software (standard on Windows Photo and iPhoto) can't handle. *If flash is too close, there is a HUGE glare/washout. This comes into play most when in Macro or within 3-4ft. *Movie mode can go out of focus quite easily if you move too fast. It recovers quite well once you slow down again. *When in movie mode, the microphones pick up the lens zooming in and out. *Shutter lag is significant and you have to wait for the flash to recharge. *AA batteries don't last as long as a Lithium Ion battery.
Overall Review: For a $200 or less camera, it has a ton to offer. The pictures and video are crisp. For all the features it has, i don't think that they can be utilized as effectively as on a higher end P&S or DSLR. If I had my choice again, I think I'd go for something more compact for the party scene or spend an extra $100 on the Nikon S8100 or Sony DSC-HX5V. Still, all in all, it's a solid camera with BIG ZOOM. In good light especially, it's tough to beat. So if a big range of options outweighs a compact size in this low dollar category, this is a good choice for you.
It's a risk
Pros: Wires are long enough for an Antec 300 case. Has 2x 6pin PCIe. Cheap with MIR.
Cons: Has 8 pin but you have to split the 8 pin to get the 4 pin for the mobo. So why have an 8 pin???????? Only 1 year warranty. 4 rails......seems a little light if you ask me.
Overall Review: The first one came in with a broken SATA connector and 20/24pin. RMA and get another. 2nd came in with wrong connectors.... Has 20/24pin, 4/8pin, 4 SATA on 1 line (first one had 2 on each), 4x 4pin molex on 2 cords w/ 1 floppy attached to one of them (no 2nd floppy or other 2 molex), has 4x 6pin PCIe. Compare that against what you should have according to specs! And besides... when's the last time you needed to or could SLI 4 GPUs on a single mobo??? I just want to know who put this thing together? I anticipate that I'll be RMAing this one for a refund.
