Pros: Colors and cooling works well so far
Cons: When the fans are placed horizonal some of the have a small bearing noise not all of them do. Place them vertical and the noise goes away.
Overall Review: Work
Pros: It installed with no problems. Settings are easy to use I have used Avg before in the past and can see that the interface has been changed for the better.
Cons: Not really a con but you will see hit on your internet speed in browsing as well when the vpn is on. my normal is 110-115 mbps with the vpn on it drops to 95-100mbps. But for a vpn service that is not to bad from what I have read. Not a deal breaker for me
Overall Review: Works and easy to install and I do feel safer with it as everyone seems to do more shopping online these days
Pros: Works as described
Cons: When I purchased it it mentioned a free upgrade to 2021 version but this is the standard version and it won't upgrade you need a higher level one.
Overall Review: Very nice product works well
Pros: Product as described
Putting together a new computer with all the bells and whistles and wanted to give it a hint of old school style and these did the trick
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: I would recommend
i would buy again
Pros: I have the Phanteks 400s case and wanted to extend the led strip these fit the bill.
Plugged in to the existing led which made it quick and easy.
Very well made product also came with a motherboard led header adapter and an extension wire if needed
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: I would buy again
Pros: Have been using this for little while and have had no problems. Need a keyboard and mouse at a good price to get you by this is the one
Pros: Big Screen 144hz Ips
Comes with cables
Tons of adjustments and options built in very nice and it's freesync paired with my vega 56 PCRD
Easy to setup it does take some time to get the colors and image set to your liking but when your done all I can say is oh my. My first Ips monitor and the colors pop and the viewing angles are a lot better than my Tn
Testing games at 144hz after switching from a 23" 60hz monitor is night and day. No defects found on the screen. Very nice monitor after many hours researching for a new one i'm glad I chose this one no complaints out of the box. Now it the test of time.
Overall Review: You will have to get use to a bigger size if you are upgrading from a smaller monitor I was able to slide it further back on my desk and after a couple of days it feels like it has always been there. I won't be going back to a smaller one that's for sure. I also have more desk space which is always a perk. Will update after a few long gaming sessions as for it's true gaming performance.
Update: I'm Writing this update for the gaming performance and images.
Cpu: Amd5800K Quad Core
Gpu: Vega56 PowerColor Red Dragon using Display port
Memory: 32gb 1866 Gskill
Psu: Corsair CX850M
MotherBoard: Asrock FM2A85X Extreme6
As you can see this is an older system and it will run the monitor at 144hz in games with higher cpu usage.
I played Fortnite,Warframe,Warface and my new favorite Division 2 for a few hours all on high and ultra settings @144hz 1920x1080 the monitor performed perfectly in all cases and with all the adjustments built in the monitor I found all images and motions to be fluid in play I find this monitor to work very well after you get it tweaked the way you like to play. Speakers as mentioned in other reviews are not that good sounding but that is not a deal breaker for me as I purchased it for the other specs I use headphones and external speakers. I played games using the FPS mode Well worth the Purchase for gaming. I have screenshots but I couldn't figure out how to attach them
Pros: Plugin play just what I was looking for.
Replaced my 7950 with this on I'm still using an older system Amd 5800k and wanted to find a decent graphic card before my complete system up grade. All i can say is WOW this card has put new life in my system and at a very decent price. The card is well made very solid feeling I have no coil noise and the fans rarely speed up very quiet card. it came with Samsung memory
I have been testing it at stock settings and I'm running all my games cranked up and WOW. No need to overclock on older systems as your system will only handle so much before you bottleneck.Nice Job Now is the test of time to see how well the card holds up. out of the box Perfect... Need a decent card this is the one.
Cons: None at this time
Overall Review: Some people don't realize PowerColor has been around for a many years. When I was building systems with the smaller cpu's 233mhz ...ect we used Powercolor in a lot of systems for office or gaming the were small as compared to today"s standard but always worked. I was excited to see them back in the market. Very Well Done Card And Welcome Back Old Friend
Update: After a month of using this card performance is still great out of the box. i'm updating my review for the cooling performance of this card I can't believe how cool and quiet this card runs. I have been playing some of the newer games cranked up and the fans hardly speed up. What a difference from my old card. I hope in the future other cards look at this cooling solution with the smaller pcb and open heat sink fins seems to work very well Just my thoughts ... cool and quiet is nice
Pros: I purchased 3 sets for my sons for Christmas as Sunday night is game night with dad (nice way to keep in touch) they are all grown and live away. The sound is like night and day from what they have been using in the past. Very clear and the mic pickup is great I'm very pleased with the purchase so far. I have been using the black shark edition for quite a while and no problems at this time
Overall Review: This product are very well made and I would purchase again I have recommended this set many times.They are one of the most comfortable sets I have used
Pros: Still working
Cons: Still slower than I hoped
Overall Review: Well after a lot of different setups I did manage to improve the remote access speed Mac's work pretty well with this unit and Win 7 seems to struggle with reading the packets. Michael is dead on with that review congrats for that using ftp for file transfers instead of the remote access provided is like night and day. I can live with the speed of downloads using ftp until a better firmware arrives (I hope) Better setup options and control of the unit will be a big plus. That being said I added two eggs because I can't put all the blame on the unit now that software, browsers, and os have entered the picture
Pros: Quiet!!!!! I use msi afterburner and the cooling results are great after using reference cooling for years this setup really works well. Speed of this card after upgrading from a 6970 really shines. I play most of the new games that are out this card does it with no problems. FC3,Crysis3,Tomb Raider, WOW, Ect.
Cons: small coil whine at some speeds but a lot of aftermarket fan speed software can produce the same results. The card is big but I think most people have cases that can handle it check the card size specs first. I use a Antec 900 no problems fitting the card.
Overall Review: System
Asrock FM2A85X Extreme6
Ocz ssd 128
Seagate hybrid Drive 750
32GB Sniper Memory 1866
Black Widow 850 PS
Pros: Once again the install was easy Asrock motherboard with G.Skill memory and game on. Added a 6670 to the mix and crossfire came right on and its playing very close to my first build with a 6950 card. Nice cpu
Overall Review: For the price vs performance you cant go wrong
Pros: 2nd build was as easy as the first. 5800k with G.Skill memory and it booted right up.I did update the bios to 107 put in a 6670 1GB ddr5 card and crossfire came on with no problems.
Cons: None Yet
Overall Review: I will say after building computers for years this motherboard sure simplifies the process. All you need to have an up to date computer is all there build right in.
Pros: Put this in a FM2A85X extreme 6 Asrock board with the A10 5800K Amd set bios to 1866 so far so good runs stable at that speed
Pros: I have had many cases im my day and this is the first one that I have seen that fits the bill to be called ONE OF THE BEST cooling is great lowered my cpu temp by 10 degrees If you want a case that looks great cools well and one that has low noise levels then stop looking this is the one
