Wonderful little beast!
Pros: - Very powerful little thing - Small form factor is a HUGE plus for future builds - Only 150W TDP / PCIe Power cable! - Installation was a breeze. It worked flawlessly plug and play on my old S5520SC Mobo - Drivers were easy to install and worked out of the box (make sure to download from nVidia site instead of the provided drivers, and to use DDU tool to remove your old drivers completely before that. You can search google for DDU, it's easy). - Runs anything very smoothly on 1080P and Ultra settings. - Looks really "sexy"! - EVGA support and community (a real plus) - EVGA software easily adjusts the fan curve or over/under clocks the card
Cons: Can't think of any, but if only it had a backplate that would be nice. This would prevent dust from accumulating on it, but that's barely an issue.
Overall Review: Coming from an old ATI Radeon HD 5770 this is a huge boost for my rig. I'm really happy I bought this, especially the 6GB version. This card is a huge bang for buck! I find it way worthy that the larger and more expensive cards from its tier. I can't imagine a better choice for 1080P gaming given the size and price. Just bear in mind that it's not designed for extreme 4K performance so don't judge it for that.
Works perfectly, no issues!
Pros: - Worked out of the box - Recognized my HDD instantly in a few seconds and worked on my old motherboard - Will work with any USB port not necessarily USB 3.0
Cons: - Things are a bit loose. The power connector for example is not perfectly snapped into the socked, the HDD is not solidly snapped in, etc. These however don't effect perfoemance, just the feeling of the product being a bit cheap. - Transfer speeds are modest, can't judge because I'm using a very old WD Green
Overall Review: Overall, this piece of equipment is very good for the price. I bought this to be able to back up my system on demand using my old internal HDDs without having to open my case every time. And for that purpose, it's a very good deal IMO. If you want something to do the job, this is your tool.
