Pros: Price & capacity. Perfect for an affordable, large, speedy game drive.
Cons: Newegg shipped this in an envelope.. Not a fan of that. Box was a little dinged up.
Other Thoughts: To the reviewer complaining about size and speed.. Hardware manufactures use the decimal system (1000). Operating systems use a binary system (1024). This drive is 960,000,000,000 decimal bytes, but divide by 1024/1024/1024 and you get 894GB by the time your OS allocates it. All drives are like this, since forever. Regarding speed, drive manufacturers advertise max speed, not average or sustained speed. Your speeds will vary based on many factors. I am getting 528/497 read/write with crystal on a 5 year old z68 board. Not bad for a budget drive on a dated controller.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative Inspire T3300 2.1 Speaker System
Pros: I can't find a pro..
Cons: See below..
Other Thoughts: I decided it was time to replace my Creative T3000 system after 7 years of use, they were quite beat up. I purchased these T3300's, expecting same-class performance, but NO, these are not even close to the T3000, which were the same retail price 7 years ago. I am no audiophile, but these sound downright lousy and I can't live with them. I could tell within a few seconds that these were going back. I have a hard time understanding all of these good reviews! I tried them through a Creative X-Fi Titanium and onboard Realtek ALC892, bad and bad. The build quality is also poor, very light, cheap plastic, very disposable. The shiny surface on one speakers came scuffed. Creative seems to be slipping. These speakers would make more sense at the $20 price point. If you are wanting quality sound at a budget, get some decent headphones. Headphones will always have better frequency ranges than computer speaker systems. If you spend the same amount on a quality set of headphones you will be blown away. If you want good desktop/entertainment system speakers, avoid these and spend more..READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card (as you can see from my previous review)
Cons: Must install software of it will overheat (see other thoughts) Not a con, just something that is easy to overlook. I see people complaining about high fermi temps all over the internet, but I do not think most people realize that you need fan profiles..
Other Thoughts: MAKE SURE THAT YOU INSTALL EVGA PRECISION!! (or any fan controller) The fan will just stay at one speed and the card overheat if you do not. I typically just avoid all manufacturer drivers/programs and just install the NVIDIA drivers. In this case, that was a bad idea. I was getting high temps around 85C while gaming. I then relized that my fan was not adjusting. I installed EVGA Precision, and now the fan throttles properly. Temps now rarely go over 70C.READ FULL REVIEW
