Excellent Value and Good sound
Pros: - Enough power and sound for an average setup in an average den - Sound quality is tight and not too boomy at moderate volume levels
Cons: - Would prefer a dedicated mono input
Overall Review: As stated above, the only flaw to me is the omission of a mono LFE input. The PSW12 which shares the same documentation has one. But I got this on sale for $99 so there is very little to complain about. You will need to play around with X-over settings and your receiver's settings to fine tune the sound, but that is part of the fun. Hopefully it will last a little while.
Does what it claims
Pros: - Fits in small form factor case - Easy setup and install
Cons: None, you may need a 6 pin to 8 pin adapter like I did if you are installing this in an older system.
Overall Review: I got this to replace a GTX-960-4gb as a final upgrade to my aging pre-built Dell for the ultimate in 1080p gaming. It was a marked improvement. I can get 75fps solid with ultra settings on just about every game I have including ROTTR, Project Cars 2, GTA5, Star citizen and more. I do get an occasional crash, but that could be my system. But overall I am pleased. 1660 Super is probably a better bang for the buck now that they are out though.
Exactly as expected
Pros: Easy 1-way installation
Overall Review: This does exactly what you need if you have an older power supply with only 6 pin outputs and you install a fancy new graphics card that needs newer style 8-pin inputs. Just long enough to not be an issue with tucking it in, but not too short to make it hard to place it.
Nice card. All expectations fulfilled.
Pros: Superb Value Compact design Great Performance
Cons: No frills instructions. Driver disc useless to me. Fans rev up from idle every few seconds.
Overall Review: I installed this in my 2 year old budget Dell XPS 8700 that had a OEM style GT635 1GB card installed. I don't play many games, and those that I do were immediately improved from the modest "Medium/High" settings they were on to "Ultra/YES/Bring it on!" settings they could be moved to on 1080p (WoW, World of Warplanes, StarCraft II, Heroes of the Storm). So if you are looking to bring new life to a modest machine, this is it. Especially if you only have 1 PCI-E slot with minimal clearance in a small case and a 460W PS like I do. Just make sure you upgrade all your drivers first and I had to upgrade my BIOS to get it to work which is always a hairy process. I also had to go to NVidia's site and download their drivers as the ones provided by Gigabyte caused the video to be slow and jerky and their provided OC software doesn't even run on my machine. I am running 64bit Windows 10, a i7-4770 3.4Ghz with 16Gb ddr3 1600mhz RAM. EDIT: I had to remove a star because despite how satisfied I am with the product I hate that I am missing out on the OC portion of the software. Mine also has the 2-sec fan rev up issue that other people have reported. That doesn't bother me as much because of the way I have my tower situated but the fact that if I wanted to fix it I'd have to upgrade the card's BIOS. The instructions and warnings are vague enough to where I haven't bothered with it and I will save it and looking for a solution to OC when the card's performance start's to disappoint...which so far it hasn't...still loving it. EDIT 2: I upgraded the card's BIOS and took care of the Fan rev up issue. EDIT 3: I maintain a solid 60FPS playing Doom at max settings in 1080P.
