This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GD5T OC
Pros: Performance boost as expected from my old GPU, DX12 in windows 10 when it comes into its own, low temps, low power, cost (with rebate).
Cons: Why is it so long? This card is 0.75" longer than my GTX285. It wouldn't fit (stock) in my mid-tower. Worst of all? It is purely cosmetic, the heatsink and PCB are shorter than a full-length card, only the black plastic shroud with its ridiculous diamond shape at the end is sticking out too far (Minus 1 star). The thing is incredibly cheap / fragile, and without a back-plate the back end of the card tends to sag a bit (Minus 1 star). Came with a free game that it couldn't max the settings on (shrugs, I won't knock a star off for that)
Other Thoughts: I disassembled the fan unit completely to get this in my case, unfortunately through some terrible engineering; to separate the fan mount (white plastic) from the black plastic you have to take the fans off completely and thread them through the white-plastic mount, and they aren't as sturdy as some older case fans (The plastic is very brittle and thin). The whole thing felt very fragile, aluminum fins that bend when touched (several were bent from the factory), cheap plastic, the lot... After the VERY nerve-wracking process I got the thing re-assembled without the black plastic, and what did I find? A pretty good little GPU. Would I buy it again? Only with the rebate price... maybe for a different computer, certainly not a mid-tower or uATX, and certainly not at the current price. Can't wait to get my dremel in so I can make it actually fit as intended and reduce the cheap appearance of the card without the black shroud.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LENMAR DLCE5 1080mAh 7.4V Li-Ion Canon LP-E5 Replacement Battery
Pros: Cheap, powered the camera on
Cons: Using lightly over several years. It never had as much capacity as the stock cannon battery, and the flash would tank it after a few shots (maybe 20 at the best).
Canon charger refuses to charge it now, while the canon battery is still running strong.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. Don't waste your money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iStarUSA WM660B 6U 600mm Depth Wallmount Server Cabinet
Pros: Price is about right for what it does. I needed an enclosure that supported 19 inch rack equipment and that is what I got. It was well packaged, not that that matters.
Cons: Arrived in great foam packaging, was still damaged, big ding in the top of rack about palm sized. The material is cheap and nothing is square, my hardware rocks on the rails it came with, and the door hangs askew.
Additionally it is not as pictured and does not come with blue stripes.
