Fun at a decent price
Pros: Fun to fly and play with. Runs quite well. I bought this as a "treat" for myself to wile away the winter days and it has proved to be an interesting toy. It has fairly responsive controls and snappy response. It can be a challenge to make landings on small areas as well as use a hook to pick up items for more challenges. I am having quite a bit of fun playing with it and it is a nice item at a very reasonable price.
Cons: The USB cable is a little flaky in that it has to be wiggled around to get a good connection on the computer side but once set it works fine. Waiting to see how long the 6 AA batteries will last in the remote unit as that is the only real ongoing price item to worry about.
Overall Review: Certainly a fun little toy to entertain and amuse for some time. I made a small hook for mine to use to pick up items as a test of skill in flying the thing and to give me some extra challenge with it. But a very reasonable toy for the price and if it does eventually break, then I am not out very much money at all.
Thought it was a good card
Pros: Seemed like it was a good card, especially for the price. Fans are quiet and graphics looked great for my use. Ran like a champ for 2 months at least.
Cons: Well now after only 2 months the card has started to fail. Get random black screens which so far will recover and the taskbar gets black blocks in it where the icons are. Pixelation is starting to become very pronounced.
Overall Review: Had really hoped for a card that would hold up better than this but will just have to jump through the RMA hoops and see what happens. Stinks though since I don't have the money to buy another card right now while this goes back!
