Pushing the envelope of passive cooling
Pros: No noise makes for a quieter computer especially w ssd. Mostly I use it for hd tv, warcraft, and as a computer monitor.
Cons: With two computer monitors displaying full hd 1080p, the one in the hdmi output will blink out for an instant once in a while and the heat sinks are super hot. When I turn off the other monitor the problem goes away.
Overall Review: I want a quiet computer and willing to work within the limitations of this card. Obviously this is just about the most performance you can get considering the unreal heat sink it has taking up two slots.
DECLINE THIS FREE ITEM if possible
Cons: Wait 'till you get charged the $40 for it when it came bundled with something ie: DOA item that got RMA'd
Overall Review: Be sure to take a system image before install. Nobody would actually buy these programs. THANKS NEWEGG FOR REFUNDING MY $40.00
Pros: Great converters and sound quality.
Cons: The software is really good, just that you have to figure out everything by yourself because the setup manual and help are unhelpful. To bad half my mediocre and at times frustrating experience was from a learning curve that could have been helped by a better manual.
Overall Review: I recorded mostly in 16 bit and some in 44 without knowing because the software defaulted to it a couple of times when I started a new project. Wish I had figured it out sooner before recording hours of material in 16 bit not 24. Frustrating.
Huge fan of triplite
Pros: I am unable to run a wire to our computers which share a window a/c among stuff, so this is the surge protection I need. Also in a bownout situation a few years back during a bad ice storm, the neutral ground was pulled out of the house. The acrid smell coming from all my expensive equipment left on at the time was only the Triplite which saved everything from total loss. I contacted the company to offer a testimonial and they sent me a brand new one because it has a lifetime warranty.
Cons: Get the four size and run extensions off that.
Overall Review: Though I just bought this one to protect my computers I have had them for more like 20 years. I recommend everybody buy one to protect sensitive electronic equipment.
Pros: Really neat cable plug in solution, quiet.
Overall Review: Pleasure to pile on to so many 5 star reviews. One of only a few brands I look for Antec power supply being one of them and this is another standout workhorse should run most computers for many years and a couple of upgrades.
