Pros: High quality, awesome graphics. Seriously, the graphics are so good it makes me woozy. The nature pics on the desktop are so precise and detailed. It is like looking through a window at snow capped mountains. Played L4D2 with the new rig and if I had epilepsy I would have went into a seizure.
Cons: Isn't made of solid platinum.
Overall Review: Fish floppin' good graphics mang!
Pros: Solid construction. Awesome BIOS, like a little operating system. Easily accepted the low profile Noctua cooler. Did not have any interference issues in my mini-ITX build.
Cons: The memory is too close to one another, and the cooler. There might be a 2 mm space between the cooler and the RAM. But, I have an upgraded cooler and serious gaming RAM with fins and all that good stuff. Comes with a suspicious looking wifi card install already in the mSATA port. Does not have Ubuntu drivers.
Overall Review: NEED UBUNTU DRIVERS PLEASE!
Pros: Looks really cool, like a little suitcase with important stuff that secret agents are after. Solid and well planned construction. Easily portable, would be great for storing your cryptocurrency.
Cons: The motherboard sits a little high, so the backplate barely fits in there. One port needed a little work to get through the backplate as a result.
Overall Review: Weighed only 8.8 lbs in working condition!
Pros: Compact with quiet operation. Leaves plenty of room in a mini-ITX case.
Cons: Too many power cables for a small form factor box. Not much room in those, so the "spaghetti" really blocks much of the view.
Overall Review: Great value!
Pros: Cheap, works great.
Cons: Not very solid construction. Thought I was gonna break it just plugging in the SATA cable. The ports feel flimsy.
Overall Review: Would buy again due to value.
Pros: High quality, smooth operation, quiet, looks good.
Cons: Can't make me a cup of coffee.
Overall Review: Worked great on my mini-ITX build, with room to spare.
Pros: Big screen, Google Play.
Cons: Resolution is not very good for the screen, compared to an ipad mini.
Pros: Decent length antenna cable.
Two diff ways to hang up the antenna.
Low profile bracket makes for a sturdy install.
Cons: Transfer speeds are all over the map. It will go from two bars to five 10 times a min. I don't know how much that has to do with my neighborhood wifi signal, or the cards ability to pick up the signal.
Overall, the only thing that makes this better than my last wifi card (a high-end three antenna out the back of the card job) is its ability to move the antenna around to optimal locations.
Pros: Easy to install and get started. Ran immediately and ended my connection issues. I have a couple Steam games and my USB WIFI adapter from Netgear was causing my games to freeze midplay. My CPU usage would stick at 80% and the computer would run slow until I rebooted. Was really becoming a pain. I slapped this thing in and voila, problem solved. I got to see how it plays out in the coming weeks, but so far I give it a thumbs up.
Cons: No low profile adapter bracket.
Pros: Easy to install, good price, and comes with brackets for several different applications. Immediately played Dead Island without choppy performance on Acer x1300. It has played without incident on the 220 W system, which is not recommended. Then again, I have minimal power draws.
Cons: Out of date driver came with the card. Did not come low profile, requiring some dis/reassembly. The desktop now looks fuzzy and my screen picture does not look as good as the stock mGPU, but the game graphics are pristine, which is confusing.
Overall Review: Saved me money by not having to buy a new system to play a modern game.
