Pros: Runs whisper quiet! I have this is my HTPC which was built to be inaudible, at idle I can't tell that I added a video card, at load it spins up a bit but is still surprisingly quiet! Runs BF3 Ultra @ 1080p!

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: Had no problems with the BF3 certificate, you have to go to Galaxy's website, and get another code to redeem on Origin once downloaded. No big deal, I was playing within 20 minutes of booting.

Good sound11/28/2011 7:31:40 AM

Pros: Blends well, has smooth sound, not boomy.

Cons: The blue light is crazy bright, I can see the glow from other rooms. Put Dark blue painters tape over it, and its still bright. The auto-on function seems to have quit after a month. The sub no longer turns on or stays on when receiving a signal. Too bad I'm a week outside the return period....

Overall Review: Really wish the auto power function still worked. Considering trying to ditch this and get a Klipsch 10" because of the lights and auto-on.

Works..7/11/2011 5:28:33 AM

Pros: Installed easily, booted first try.

Cons: I have the unit hooked up by HDMI to my plasma, which passes optical audio back to my receiver. With this board I get a deafening blast of static during post that lasts ~2 seconds. Even when volume on receiver is down, must have "electrically dirty" initialization. Never heard anything like it from any other board and results in me taking off 3 eggs. Used other board and no scream of static.

Overall Review: Seems like a decent board. Part of a package deal with an APU. The blast of static is really annoying though.

Pros: 4 cores, 320 stream processors. Put in a HTPC with the stock CPU cooler (almost silent when in Cool n Quiet mode. Plenty fast for playing back any video I have. 3d Blu Ray playback also works well.

Cons: Probly should have paid $20 more for the extra stream processors and clock of the A8. But I'm cheap!

Overall Review: what stood out to me most during installation was how heavy the chip itself was.

Pros: does what it is supposed to do, unless you need 3D why spend more? Looks identical to the 10x more expensive Monster cable on my 55" Panasonic Plasma 1080p

Cons: none

Overall Review: don't waste money buying expensive cables

works as advertised7/9/2009 11:23:31 AM

Pros: Does everything it advertises, reads every card I've thrown at it quickly. The audio plug has both AC97 and HD adapters. Price was right.

Cons: "Aluminum" front panel is just glued to plastic underneeth, mine had already separated on one side when i received it, simple fix, but shouldn't have to fix something new. Also I have an Antec screwless drive case and the does not work, had to create custom brackets to hold it in place. In regular case this shouldn't be an issue as the front screws are in place.

Overall Review: Each card reader shows up as device in windows, wish it would only show up when a card was inserted like a USB thumb drive. I think this is standard for card readers though so I can't take off eggs. Overall I would recommend if looking for a 5.25" bay reader as I was.
