Great performance, 2GB and standard HDMI
Pros: -Fast. Has run everything I've thrown at it so far with settings turned up and no problem. -Overclocks very stable. So far runs 925mhz with no problems. Haven't tried to push it further yet. -STANDARD HDMI. Not a mini. Will fit all your hdmi cables without needing to buy an adapter and worry about losing it. -2GB VRAM. This is the only 560 that has this. - Runs cool. Temps have not gottem much higher than 40C even under full load. - Fan is quiet. I never hear it under normal use. Even if I force the fan to 100% it's still relatively quiet, about the level of my cpu fan. -Good price/performance ratio and an all around excellent value. This is my first NVidia card (had always bought ATI in the past) and I'm extremely pleased. Image quality is excellent as is the speed. Easy to overclock with Afterburner or other utilities.
Cons: - Large. It takes up 2 slots on the back of your comptuer, but that's pretty much to be expected these days on any higher end video card.
Overall Review: I know some claim that the extra GB of VRAM is not needed under most single monitor use situations. That's somewhat true as most monitors cannot reach ultra high resolutions to use all 2GB and even if you can performance at those resolutions would probably not be very good in newer games. However, I like to use mods in my games and some games I play, such as Oblivion, have the option of downloading very high resolution texture replacement packs which hog VRAM like crazy. Also, I'm considering adding another card and upgrading to a multimonitor + SLI solution in the future so the extra RAM will certainly help there. To me doubling my VRAM gives me more flexibility for not much more cost and is totally worth it.
Mine also continuously disconnects
Pros: None. Would be convenient to have if I could get it to work.
Cons: Will not stay connected. It continuously disconnects on me. Useless and too much headache and time was spent trying to get it to work. I'm returning it for a refund and going back to just using a long ugly wire.
Overall Review: I tried everything I could, pairing up with WPS, resetting the device many times, connecting it to a PC manually entering the router password, entering the device's settings, rebooted router etc. I would have updated the firmware but it wouldn't let me. Most times it would not stay connected long enough to be able to do it and other times it said invalid file format for the .BIN file which I know for a fact is the correct one because I got it from IOGear's website. I also redownloaded the file multiple times in case it did not download correctly but no dice.
Great Light, holds up well over time
Pros: - Decent Light output - Solar rechargeable - Regular AA batteries (easily rechargable/replaceable) - Holds up well over long term
Cons: Not a huge amount of light output. If you want to do detailed work or have a party etc the output from this light alone won't cut it, but if you just want a small light for temporary situations it's fine.
Overall Review: Have owned these a little over a year now and they are still holding up quite well. I live in an apartment with a deck that has no light so these really help in the dark.
Pros: Excellent sound Comfortable Does a good job of blocking outside noise long cord Durable and long lasting
Cons: I really can't think of any
Overall Review: This is one of the best pair of headphones I have ever owned and it was one of the cheapest. They're super comfortable, sound great and are well made. Mine have held up perfectly after a year of daily use.
