5 out of 5 eggs Better than 10 08/27/2016

This review is from: Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit

Pros: The fastest Windows OS I've owned and installed. It's faster than 7 (which no more than a re-tooled Vista), and it's better than 8 because of the changes to the UI start menu. It also is not the uber gathering/tracking/spyware/big brother/no control that Windows 10 is.

Cons: None that I can tell

Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade my wife's 7 laptop before my only option becomes Windows 10 or Linux.

Pros: Fast card. Works in X-Fire mode nicely. It doesn't take huge power either. It also fit nicely onto my MOBO (it's not too long like some cards can be) Lightning fast NewEgg shipping.

Cons: The rebate process is lousy. (minus one star)

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these at once. I printed the rebate and did all the paperwork and all that good stuff. I chose to do two separate claims and added it to one envelope. My mistake. They only approved the rebate for one of them, so instead of getting $40 ($20 per card), I'm only getting $20. Live and learn. If you want to buy two of these, buy one and wait until the order ships before buying the second one. That way there will be two invoice numbers and you'll be able to do two separate claims.

Pros: Does what It's supposed to. It's really blue.

Cons: Almost too short. It's really blue.

Other Thoughts: I have an add-on card for my PC so my only USB3 I have is in the back. And to top it off my PC is held in a rack under the table so it's rather difficult to get to. This little extension does the trick. I do have a paperweight holding it down so it doesn't slip down behind everything. But the 6 foot cable would have been too long. If they had a 4 foot version I would have bought that.
