Pros: It was a simple replacement for my Xfx r290x Double Dissapation card. Sadly the fans were dying on it and I couldn't find any replacement fans.
Cons: Still a bit warm, but not as hot as my r290xREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: The Pro's of getting this SSD is, its the better bang for your buck if you're on a budget. Looking at Tom's hardware information about the difference SSDs out there. This ranked second below Samsung as it has a slightly slower read and write speed, but ranked higher in terms of pricing.
Cons: Con's would be is that its a shame that most HDDs, or SSDS, or any time of storage device doesn't give you the full ammount regardless. I had only 894 gigs out of 960.
Other Thoughts: I would definately buy another one when I get the extra money to do so. Sandisk's a great company along with the Others out there as well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Pro's about this card is it improved my Video gaming experience to a whole other level. I went from 30-40 fps from my old video card to 60-90fps on this one. Take in fact that i'm going from an Xfx 6770HD Radeon to the Xfx R290x was a major boost. Slim can be quiet if not running under a heavy load. The light up logo looks great with my theme of White/Black/Gold/Silver colors.
Cons: Cons would be that this card gets hot fast. Not sure if its the heatsink, or the fans, or the way how it distributes heat evenly through the card. I do have to take the side panel off while playing one game since I moderate the temperature as it reaches up to about 80c. I've read somewhere that Amd says that their cards can handle up to 95c but I don't even want to let it get there. If you're not playing with headphones on, or have audio turned up when the fan kicks up to 100% It sounds like you're about ready to take off on a flight. Other than these two cons the card is great.
Other Thoughts: Other thoughts would be, if you buy this card and wish to void the manufactures warranty by putting an after market cooler or going with liquid cooling by all means do so. I'm waiting for the warranty to go out before I decide to go with liquid cooling.READ FULL REVIEW
