Pros: I upgraded from the 840 Pro as that died on me after 1 year use (still trying to get RMA)
Currently have these 850s running in Raid 0 setup. Speeds are extremely fast and well worth the buy. So far I have no complaints on them and just hope they last longer then a year this time.
Game loading times are just to good to be true. BattleField 4 loads so fast im in a new map and it starts before anyone else joins. (15 sec spawn timer)

Cons: None except they dont come with a Hot woman and cold beer.

Pros: This card is amazing fast! Upgraded from a GTX 680. Every game ive tossed at it runs so smooth and 0 lagg. Well worth the buy! Weighs a ton and comes with a brace. Very large and takes up 3 slots so make sure you have plunty of room! Also that power intake is extreme

Maybe i would buy a 2nd one if water cooled.

Cons: Runs hot while gaming. MMO-Aion runs up to 66C with fan on Max and card NOT over clocked! Wish this was water cooled!

They need to make a water block for this card please!

Pros: This hhd is amazing fast.. I've only owned it 8 months now and it's 100% dead. Would be 5 star if it didn't die after 8 months. I still have hhds that work from 7 years ago.. Not impressed with the short life span.

Cons: Dies to fast .. Be careful as many other people say there's die any time after 4 months. I don't recommend this to anyone.

Other Thoughts: Should give me a new and up graded one Samsung!
