Pros: A solid card! The card seems very sturdy, and feels like it's made of high quality materials. So far it's run everything I've tested it with, but in truth that's nothing too taxing yet, and I definitely want to test it with more demanding things. It also runs very cool compared to my previous card, and though I've read some people complain about the noise it makes, it's more quiet than my previous card by a good amount.
Cons: When I said "a solid card," I meant it. The card is almost the length of my forearm, and weighs twice what my old card did. I was very worried it wouldn't fit in my case, but luckily by moving some wires it just barely fits. The reason I put this in Cons and not Other thoughts is because I do worry about it falling or bending something internally if I have to move it or if it gets raddled. It's definitely not enough of a concern to take a star off though.
And I guess the fact that it doesn't come with any games is a little bit of a bummer, but again I can't take a star for that as that's just bonus content.
Other Thoughts: The reason I say "I think..." is because I really haven't noticed a huge difference between it and my previous card. My old card was definitely no pushover, a Sapphire Radeon hd 5770 1gb, but for some reason I had thought the difference would be more drastic. Again, this is my fault, so I'm not docking anything from the score. I just hope that this can last a while to get my money's worth from it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overall quality sound, nice look, easy to adjust, and pretty decent bass.
Basically, you'll be hard pressed to find better $40 speakers, though it's not impossible
Cons: Tendency to lose quality over time, cumbersome subwoofer unit.
Other Thoughts: 1st set got a short in the cable about 6 months after purchase. Not unusable, but tended to die out at the slightest movement (and I mean SLIGHTEST). Called their customer service, explained everything (including the fact that they still worked kinda, just needed to replace the main speakers, sub was fine), and so they said they'd send me out new speakers, no need for me to even return the old ones. In about a week, they didn't just send replacement speakers, but a whole brand new unit! Now I have 1 good unit (sound quality has degraded a bit) and 1 unit that works if I mess with the cord enough.
A 4 star product, but with 6 star support!
