Pros: Fast, quiet performer. I am a MMORPG player so maybe not quite as demanding as some other games but this card made a huge difference in performance in crowded cities in Rift and allows me to use the highest settings on my 1920X1200 display.
Rebate made it a better deal and the fact that it had more savings when combined with Lightroom4, which I happened to be in the market for, made this a great deal all around for me.
Pros: No more overheating problems with my PS3! Nicely designed to fit well with the PS3. Appearance is of a quality that matches the case of the PS3. Auto-On heat sensor works well for me.
Cons: Fans are louder than I would like but I didn't knock off an egg because when you are using the PS3 you are usually making enough sound that you don't hear the fans.
Overall Review: I use my PS3 for watching DVD's and streaming video. I really like auto-on (Power Save) mode and now leave the unit always on and in Power Save. The fans are not usually loud enough to be heard over whatever I'm watching but when I turn off the TV they continue to run (as they should) until they have cooled down the PS3 and the sound can be annoying.
Pros: I bought this as a video monitor for my Ham Radio TV hobby. Good video from the A/V jacks. Will run on 12V.
Cons: For my purposes, none.
Overall Review: This unit has a USB connector on the bottom edge. There is no mention of it in the manual. I tried connecting it to my computer just to see what would happen and nothing happened. Anyone know what this jack is good for?
