Pros: FAST! But I guess that's to be expected when the only thing you've ever used is standard platter hard drives... Absolutely blows away two 300 gig's I had in RAID0 setup. It's completely silent so that's always a plus too!
Cons: None so far!
Other Thoughts: For some reason I was thinking this drive was the size of a 3.5" floppy drive, so I had to get creative to actually mount it in my tower... But since it's so light, a little double sided tape did the trick; it's hidden out of the way and securely mounted :) Have this running OS and other programs and another 300 gig platter drive for storage.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wires are long enough, much longer than my old 2.1 Altec Lansing speaker setup. The remote volume knob is nice, quite is easy to get to volume adjustments. The blue LED light on the controller fits nicely with the blue glow coming from my tower :) Oh yeah, and they sound great!
Cons: None so far!
Other Thoughts: Replaced a 10 year old speaker setup that's been randomly cutting in and out, and am very pleased with the setup. Sounds great!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great performing card for the price. Fairly quiet; the two large fans are much more silent then the blow-through type coolers. The lack of side badging is a plus for me too, I hate looking through the side case window and seeing a bunch of branding stickers...
Cons: LARGE! Barely fits in my Antec 902 case, had to rearrange my HD setup to fit it. It's snug, but it's in. The 6 and 8 pin plugs are in an awkward spot, but that's the case on most cards... Would much rather have them face forward instead of the side to get rid of some of the clutter.
Other Thoughts: I got this card to replace a failing XFX 4870 HD 1gb that was the better part of 7 years old. Although that card did well for what I needed, I figure what better time to step up in performance, and I'm very satisfied with this 6970. I have yet to put it through it's paces in anything graphically demanding, but I have a feeling I will not be disappointed. Highly recommend :)READ FULL REVIEW
