Pros: It works like a displayport cable, so that's a plus, but...
Cons: Packaging said it was a 1.1 cable and 1.2 compatible which means it's not DP 1.3 or 1.4 so it's not future proof and won't support 4K@120Hz let alone 8K at all. Putting this kind of info on the product page would have kept it from losing a star.
Other Thoughts: It works as expected it's just a shame whenever products online are missing relevant information. This is not even DP 1.3 which means the standard it's using is nearly a decade old. FYI this cable likely won't even support 4K @ 60 Hz or might JUST meet that spec with the 1.2 compatible but not likely; packaging says up to 2K only.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I finally got my hands on one at long last and all the hype is real. Tears through everything I throw at it and is insanely cool and quiet compared to the 6970 it's replacing. Ultimately I get higher FPS on max settings in every game than I got at lowest settings on the 6970. Truly incredible.
The fans run silent as hell and I've not heard a peep and 0 coil whine.
Cons: The only possible con I could say is there's no mini displayport on the back so I have to now buy a new cable but I can't really take that as a star off or anything because that's more an issue on my end to not have a full to full displayport cable.
Other Thoughts: I've always sought GPUs in the 350-400 range as they tend to last for 5 years, and my 6970 was no different. I got 5 1/2 years out of that thing and it was just time to move up to the future, especially since this card uses only 150W versus 250 on the 6970. AMDs releases so far are lackluster for driving higher resolutions like 2K or 4K so this was the logical choice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: And it didn't DOA at all. In fact this is one of the fastest 7200 RPM drives I've ever owned and it is rock solid. The capacity is fantastic and even after all the HD movies and TV I've still got many many GB left to fill in the future.
Cons: Nothing at all to complain about
Other Thoughts: There are 6 TB drives and maybe even 7/8? But once you go past the value of 5 TB the price goes sky high which doesn't make sense. In fact the difference between 4 TB and 5 TB tends to be $20 but from 5 to 6 it's basically just double price.READ FULL REVIEW
