Pros: Worked perfectly with my new Synology DS1515+
Pros: Cheaper than WD GOLD, quite
Cons: None as of yet
Overall Review: I had a few mid tier Seagate drives fail on me in years past. Due to time constraints I ended up with 5 of these rather than 5 of the WD gold drives. So far they have preformed very well. I would recommend everyone register these drives the day they come in. I will update if they have any issues.
Pros: Nice web interface, easy to assemble and swap drives.
Cons: Ran a parity check after I built the first RAID volume. Not sure why, it did not really cause a delay or anything just no reason to run a parity check on empty drives
Overall Review: 10/10 would recommend
Pros: Huge compared to the 27"1080p monitor I upgraded from. It looks pretty slick and has a realy nice stand. Picture quality is top notch, and unlike some reviewers mine came perfect out of the box. No dead pixels or any noticeable light bleed.
Cons: At 4K it taxes my 2 EVGA 1080 SC pretty bad. I'm getting 55 to 57 FPS on most games with settings on ultra (other than anti aliasing, which after testing I realized I couldn't even discern if it was on or not)
Overall Review: Make sure your desk is large enough to handle this beast. Also as another reviewer pointed out the display port cable is like 3 feet long. I was able to make it work, but if your rig isn't on the left side (facing the monitor) and right next to the desk, you may want to buy a longer one.
Pros: Clear sound especially through a nice sound card. Easy set up, once you have all the parts.
Cons: Mine did not come with the included 3.5mm AUX jack and also has several dings and dents. Not enough for me to return, but if your set up is going to be sitting someplace for everyone to see and you want it looking nice. Or you just think for $200 they should be able to get you all the stuff in the package in good condition, you might either want to go to the store and get one or have to face a possible return.
Pros: Super fast! All I did was create my own fan curve and the card regularly hits 2119 MHZ at around 75C. It also pulls way less power than the Asus GTX 680 I upgraded from. It's so great I have already gotten an EVGA HB bridge and am planning on getting a second one ASAP. First time I've ever bought an EVGA product and I'm not sure I can go back now.
Cons: Other than no availability when the card came out I can think of any.
Overall Review: I would recommend this product to anyone who needs to serious GPU horsepower.
Pros: Very high quality build. Has more power than you probably nees.
Pros: Board has a lot of features that you might or might not need. I would advise reading the manual very carefully if you are planning on using any of the advanced overclocking features.
Cons: Instruction manual is not the greatest
Pros: Everything you'd want from a RAM set
Cons: Warning this RAM is fairly tall. I had to switch the front fan on my CPU cooler to a 120mm and set it to the highest level to get the RAM and the cooler on.
Overall Review: Yes
