Pros: Reliable. Very nice UEFI that is simple to navigate. The software suite is intuitive to use.
Cons: So far so good. No Cons to speak of for the time being.
Overall Review: Only time will tell if it lasts, but my history with MSI boards has been spotless so far. Looking forward to another 3 years of a nice board.
Cons: I originally bought this card for a family member's PC, which I didn't have a lot of money to build with. I thought this would be a great deal. It worked nicely for a couple weeks but then took spells on whether or not it would power on and post. About a week after this problem started, it just went out while being used. It hasn't powered on since. I had a friend who recently bought this card as well (before mine went dead, I recommended it because of the low price point.). His card came DOA.
Overall Review: This card isn't worth the gamble. If it works, it works fine. Nothing special like the higher end cards, but fine. The card is so inexpensive that it quickly jumps into a whole new price point when you have to ship it back for RMA. In my experience 2/2 boards of this exact model have not lasted 3 weeks. I have always liked ASUS, My own uses an ASUS mobo and ASUS GPU, but this leaves a majorly bad taste in my mouth.
Pros: -Quiet -Sleek, professional Aesthetics -Thin, light, and a small footprint for a 17 inch screen. -Great gaming performance for it's size. -Feels premium
Cons: -No G-Sync -It loves finger prints.
Overall Review: I thought long and hard about what laptop to get, Ultimately deciding that I was willing to take the hit to build quality on this laptop vs some others like the zephyrus. I am not disappointed. I expected a flimsy cheap feel, as this is what many reviews lead me to expect. It does not feel cheap or flimsy at all. It's quite rigid and feels very nice in hand. I believe this may be a new revision with some of the old issues ironed out, but i'm not certain.
Pros: 1070 pushes everything you would need it to at 1080p. Unless you are going 4k or 1440 ultra-wide, there's no reason to get anything more. This card is made even better with this cooler. It's quiet and cool regardless of what's going on.
Cons: The only con for this card is current price to performance when it comes to current prices (as of 10/23/2018). A 1080 can be had for not much more.
Pros: Cool. Quiet. Powerful.
Cons: The only thing I think could use improvement is the front shroud of the card. It has red lights on it but would be much better as RGB.
Overall Review: The Gaming X Trio version of the 1080TI blows most others out of the water. It is on-par, if not better, than even the water cooled offerings. I have had this for nearly a year now and have to say it's served me very well.
