Pros: Powerful card for the price. Fan is adjustable speed and automatically slows down when idle. Low power consumption/large fan quiet at idle. No PCI-E power means it will run on many OEM power supplies.
Cons: Fan gets noisy under load, as expected. Takes up 2 slots but the hot air is not exhausted out of the back of the case. The **almost got it**, extendign hte fan shroud to the back of the case (like they do with high end cards) would have been better.
Other Thoughts: Excellent value if MIR pulls through.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cool/Quiet, just as fast as my 7200RPM drive. Getting 80MB transfer speeds between them.
Cons: Firmware a PITA to update, however it's worth doing since you're getting a nice drive for the $$$.
Other Thoughts: This the the drive to get right now. Anything cheaper is either smaller or has several bad reviews. Advanced format drive may cause an issue for some users.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good CPU offloading for many file types. Runs cool. Great buy on Black Friday Special IF the rebate comes through. ASUS has always been good to me on rebates, so I'll take my chances...
Cons: ATI catalyst defaults to 15% underscan, the control is difficult to find.
Other Thoughts: Would have rather seen the card as a "full height" with a larger fan instead of a low profile with a smaller fan.READ FULL REVIEW
