This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 980Ti 6GB G1 Gaming OC Edition
Pros: -runs smooth
-temps are fine
-typical Nvidia software
Cons: -today, after 1 year & 1 month the fan over the GPU has died. I've noticed some coil whine over the last month or 2. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. So I'm going to try and send it back to Gigabyte for a return since it's under a 3 year warranty.
-was playing a game and i suddenly heard a grinding sound. I immediately shut my pc off and looked inside. I started blowing everything with compressed air and noticed 1 fan over the GPU did not spin. I took out the card and noticed the fan seems unseated. It wobbles and doesn't spin smoothly.
-Tried calling Gigabyte (2 days after Christmas) and they're closed for the holidays......wonder how long they'll be closed.
-I've read it takes 2-3 weeks of waiting to get another card back. So that means I'm without a card for a while.....great
This review is from: 36" 2.1-Channel Sound Bar System with Wireless Subwoofer
Pros: -Like all Samsung products, it looks good.
-Solid amount of controls on remote
-Plenty loud enough and plenty of bass for my situation (see other thoughts below)
-Wifi Sub, less cords
-Sub EQ adjustment
-Comes with metal mounting bracket. It's about 6 inches long and mounts to the center of the sound bar. Soundbar just hooks on and rests on the mount.
-You can power on/off and do other cool things IF you have the 2013 Samsung TV....apparently my top of the line 2014 Smart TV isn't compatible...if so, then my tv's directions nor the sound system's directions aren't helping...
-Sound quality is solid, great for the price. It could be better if you could manually adjust EQ settings....
Cons: -I've had a difficult time trying to get multiple devices hooked up to this thing the way I want and I'm somewhat unsuccessful.
-Only has 1 HDMI-in, 1 HDMI-out, 3.5mm jack, and direct output jack
-Not the greatest instruction manual...can't believe I actually used one lol
-I don't have HDMI hooked up, just the 3.5mm out...so I can't speak for the virtual SS.
-Lack of EQ...only preset adjustments...bleh
Other Thoughts: So I live in an apartment (about 1,200 sqft). This system is PLENTY loud enough for the entire place. I could disturb neighbors if I wanted. Sub EQ ranges from -6 to +6. I keep it on +3. It's not a very highquality sub and lacks punch but it does put out. The volume goes pretty high as I keep it on 20 (in the middle-ish) and I can hear it over most things I do across the apartment. I can't STAND preset EQ settings....
This system is definitely worth $150 or less, which is what I got it for.
This review is from: EVGA Flexible 3.5in 2-Way SLI Bridge Model 401-MB-0033-01
Pros: Does what it's supposed to do.
Went on very easily.
Flimsy, so if the length isn't perfect you can make it perfect! lol
Other Thoughts: I've used this for my Nvidia 670 FTWs and haven't had any problems after about 8 months of use. Very simple to install and activate in the Nvidia control panel. I had lost my Asrock SLI bridge (no clue how but I did) and so I spent a lot of time making sure I bought the correct/best replacement. This one seems to be great. So buy with confidence!READ FULL REVIEW
