Hangs on weird static/snow screen evry time a game is launched9/1/2021 3:57:33 PM

Cons: The unit I received was defective, the provided DP only displayed a washed out image with very little color, the provided HDMI cable displayed good color but the monitor would hang on a weird grey screen (static/snow) every time a game is launched. I had to turn off/on to get to the game. When working I was getting 80+fps using an MSI RX 5700XT.

Overall Review: I have requested a return/refund and will be looking at an alternative monitor.

A little better than stock8/14/2008 10:14:04 AM

Pros: Its solid and easy to install, if you have a large case. Quiet.

Cons: e8400 stock cooler was 39C idle & 56 Load. ASUS V-60 is 38C idle and 50 Load. I tried the thermal pad, and then cleaned with arctic and used AR5. dropped 1C.

Overall Review: looking at other comments it would appear that some people are getting much better temps. Maybe I got a bad one? I will be buying something else next paycheck.

Not Happy7/17/2008 12:49:42 PM

Pros: My 1st ever ATI card. I have always bought Nvidia in the past. The 4870 cards appears to be the best value for money. It has eaten up any game I have thrown at it so far, with only a few oddities.

Cons: Runs hot No drivers! I am using the hot fix drivers, plus an edit of my profiles fan speed to lower the temperatures. I have had a couple of in game crashes that I am blaming on the hot fix drivers. Giving this card a 3 until the drivers arrive and I see improvement.

Overall Review: Its a bit of a joke not having drivers. I honestly would have bought another card had i known i would still be waiting. The CD supplied with the card is pointless. I like gigabyte as a company they produce some good stuff. But I am really disappointed with this purchase.

Works Great11/1/2007 2:23:29 PM

Pros: Solid build, had it up and running in an hour. Combined it with 4GB of King$ton value ram, an E6750, and a 8600gtx. Its eats up any game I throw at it.

Cons: No case fans, easily fixed with a 80mm front and back and temps remain healthy under load.

Overall Review: For the money, it is very good value. Newegg delivered a day early!

Nice but Slow9/26/2007 12:07:40 PM

Pros: Does everything that it claims. plays every format that I have, without a problem. looks great on my 1080P TV.

Cons: Slow to operate, power up takes a while, Opening the tray is also slow.

Overall Review: The Price and functions of this unit out way the slow speed. Other review mentions that they have skipping and other problems, I think that must be a defective unit as mine is 100% fine.

In-car power cable was defective7/27/2007 12:23:32 PM

Pros: looks nice, ASUS. 1Gb SD card

Cons: The in car power adapter was defective, couldn't use it on trips longer than the 4 hour battery life. Didn't rate the bundled navigation software.

Overall Review: Other post claims a 50% failure rate, not so sure about this, I did my research before buying it and never found much negative information. The PDA is good just the defective in-car cable forces 4 stars

Great Monitor3/30/2006 2:28:03 PM

Pros: This CRT monitor has replaced a number of high-end LCD monitors which all caused serious ghosting in every game i played. The picture quality is stunning, may games hav never looked so good. Sony Trinitron Rules.

Cons: Non

Overall Review: The cable provided is more than adequate, not flimsy as mentioned by previous reviews

Solid Budget Machine1/30/2006 7:06:06 PM

Pros: Very good looking small footprint system with the usual Asus quality. Using it in a Computer repair class to demonstrate building small systems.

Cons: The plastic front of the system lets it down a little.

Overall Review: Very cheap and easy to build a solid system, though a better graphics card would be needed for those wishing to play high-end games.
