SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X DirectX 12 100361-8GL 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC(UEFI) Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This card is unusable for me.

Cons: If you only run windows 8 then my complaint won't affect you much AT THIS POINT IN TIME. However, if you like to run other operating systems such as Linux (SteamOS is Linux by the way) then having UEFI in your graphics card is going to mess your world up.

There is no benefit from having a UEFI graphics card. Zero. None. It will not give you any extra fps. Wel there is one benefitl.... and it's only if you are Microsoft and you are paying companies to make hardware that only works with WINDOWS!!!

Please do not contribute to Microsoft's attempt to kill off the small community maintained operating systems like Linux.

4 out of 5 eggs It's pretty slow but I didn't buy it for speed reasons 07/09/2012

This review is from: LaCie MosKeyto 131174 32 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

Pros: It's really small and it holds a lot of a data. From what I've heard it's more reliable than other usb drivers of similar size from other manufacturers. So far I'm inclined to believe what I've heard.

Cons: It's slow but it is usb 2.0 so what do you expect? If you want something fast go buy a usb 3.0 drive. If you want a tiny usb drive that holds a lot of data then this is probably what you want.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this product again if I needed another small usb that holds 32 GB.

This review is from: HighPoint RU1144A (RocketU 1144A) PCI-Express 2.0 x4 USB 3.0 Controller Card

Pros: It works and it's fast.

Cons: There's a missing driver for the PLX PEX 8609. I can't find the driver anywhere and high point offers no support.
