Pros: I rated this card only 4 stars because I just received it and cannot comment on its reliability. However, I've tested it and the speed is top notch (see other thoughts.) I'm using it in my Galaxy S3 and no issues so far. From my research, only the Samsung card matches this card in random write/read. This is important if you're running apps or op systems on your device or pc. If you're just looking for storage then buy a cheaper class 6/8/10. Also popped the card (with the included adapter) in my Panasonic GH1 and it has no problem keeping up in the recording of HD video.
Cons: none as of yet

Pros: I own this as well as the 2x8GB ripjaws in another desktop. Have never had any issues with performance, setup, or reliability. No problems with size in either pc regarding the heatsinks. These are a great product price/performance wise and are almost always on special or offered in different combo options.

Pros: This thing is big (but very thin), bright, & beautiful. Haven't experienced any ghosting or artifacts with games. No light bleed in corners or panel. Yes, the stand is unconventional, but I like it. The way it sits on your desk hides the cords, and its sturdier than some would have you believe. If you need more tilt angles then rig something up McGruber. As for no mount, this panel is so light you could hang it on the wall with adhesive velcro. The piano black finish is sleek and sophisticated. Yes, it attracks prints - stop fingering it.
Cons: - Guess I too will mention the panel buttons are laggy. I find using my whole finger or thumb (not just the tip) more successful. - A two-way hdmi would've been nice
Overall Review: Originally, I had to adjust scaling with my ati card for full screen 1080. However, I recently updated CCC/drivers (v 10.6 Windows 7-64) and it automatically set full screen. As mentioned, this thing is bright. It would be helpful if reviewers mentioned their settings. Also, I can't figure out what the "trace free" adjustment accomplishes.
