Pros: CPU temp was 10 degrees C cooler than when I was using the paste that came with the heat sink.

Cons: None

Most Critical Review

Instructions are horrible!

Pros: My Intel i7 930 CPU doesn't get any hotter than 52C, even under full load. Fan is very quiet.

Cons: Took me 4 hours to figure out what the instructions were saying. Instead of creating different instructions for different socket types, they combined them all into one set. The heat sink in the pictures is not the kind you get in the box, making it even more confusing.

Overall Review: Good heat sink for the price, but there is a significant time cost in trying to translate the poorly written instructions.

Finish rubs off easily

Pros: Lots of table space and leg room.

Cons: The black finish rubs off easily. If you put a PC on it like I have, be sure to use a mouse pad.

No problems

Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to do. The web interface is intuitive.

Cons: Startup and shutdown takes a bit longer than I'd like, but it's not really that big an issue with me.

Does what it's supposed to

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: No component input. Issues with screen tearing, but I'm hoping this can be fixed somewhere in the configuration.

Overall Review: Really wish it came with component input.
