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.
Pros: Looks good, and feels very sturdy.
Nice and quick, especially compared to my 4yr old latitude.
Cons: Web cam could be better, but its not a deal breaker.
Overall Review: I will grab a SSD when the prices drop some more.
Pros: None -
Cons: Died after a week. Gigabyte support are useless.
Do your self a favor and look elsewhere.
Overall Review: Wish I'd bought from newegg.
Pros: Gigabyte - two strikes your out.
Cons: No Crossfire Bridge included!
Overall Review: What a cheap company to supply a card with a feature you cant use with purchasing an additional component.
Pros: Its solid and easy to install, if you have a large case.
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
Overall Review: The cable provided is more than adequate, not flimsy as mentioned by previous reviews
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.
