Most Favorable Review

Better for sure than my two 1080 in SLI

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X 12G OC
MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X 12G OC

Pros: - 3080Ti is overkill for some but the best fit between the more modest 3080 and the most powerful 3090... - Easy to install - I get good framerates with my 1080p displays but not incredibly good ones when I select the highest display settings (Ultra and RTX on Quality). For instance, I played the remastered Crysis in "Can it run Crysis" mode and I get less than 100FPS in 1080p. This tells me that contrarily to what I have seen, read and heard, a 3080Ti is NOT overkill for 1080p if you like high FPS.

Cons: - Ridiculously expensive. - Interestingly, I did manage better 3DMark scores with my two 1080 in SLI than with this single 3080Ti (fortunately, it is not reflected in games).

Overall Review: I was "fortunate" to be selected during one of the Newegg lottery after many tries to have the privilege to buy an overcharged video card... I think I paid at least 70% more than the RSRP... It was the price to pay to upgrade from my 1080...

Potentially Dangerous

Rosewill 4-Piece Ceramic Knife Set
Rosewill 4-Piece Ceramic Knife Set

Pros: Ceramic blade does not need sharpening.

Cons: Poor construction quality. Ceramic blades are fragile and may break.

Overall Review: I bought one of these sets and within maybe a week or two one blade came out of the handle. I was lucky not to cut myself. There was no sign of glue on it... I contacted the customer service and they replied but were asking pics and so on to decide what to do next. The $25 I paid are not worth the bother of following up... Just stay away from this cheap and potentially dangerous product!

I could not get it to work; The seller refunded me without discussion

ASUS ROG SLI HB Bridge (for 1080/1070 cards) 2 Slot/ 6cm for Nvidia Graphics Card
ASUS ROG SLI HB Bridge (for 1080/1070 cards) 2 Slot/ 6cm for Nvidia Graphics Card

Pros: - Cheap compared to the known brands

Cons: - I could not succeed to make it ever work for my two Geforce 1080 in SLI. Windows detected the bridge but Nvidia refused the SLI mode (Optimize 3D settings). In conclusion, this card was useless for my needs.

Overall Review: Upon the posting of my original review with one star, I was contacted by the seller who asked me what they could do to address my issues. I explained my case, provided two pics of the item and the seller immediately refunded me without even asking for the SLI bridge in return. In consequence, I changed my review to 4 stars because the purchase is risk free.

Very fast but not worth the upgrade from 2 970 in SLI

ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 Video Card STRIX-GTX1080-8G-GAMING
ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 Video Card STRIX-GTX1080-8G-GAMING

Pros: - I run all the games I can at 5760*1080 and it never goes under 30fps. - Reasonably priced for those in need of upgrade - Fans are not very loud, temps go as low as 38C in idle and less than 60C at max load. - You can set the colors of the backplate.

Cons: - It was touted to provide more than 30% increase versus 2 980Ti in SLI but in reality I get maybe 10% improvement versus my 2 970 in SLI.

Overall Review: - If given the choice, I should have passed this one for the little improvement it provided for my config. It may bring more significant improvements for others with different resolution but for me the improvement was not worth the money spent.

Does not get recognized on cold boot.

VANTEC Add-On Card Model UGT-IS602R
VANTEC Add-On Card Model UGT-IS602R

Pros: Two disks detected on PCIE at 1.5GB/s. One is a 2TB SATA 2 and the other one a 3TB Sata 3.

Cons: This card almost never gets detected at cold boot. I have to shut it down and restart it and it then gets detected by the bios. Weird... Also, the boot speed is much slower than normal with my win7x64 SSD boot.

Overall Review: Other than that, it works fairly well when detected. I am suspecting that I may not be getting the 3GB/s one of my disk is capable of and I do not know why.

Revised judgement

OCZ Vertex Series 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-1VTX60G
OCZ Vertex Series 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-1VTX60G

Pros: This hard drive is the fastest I have ever used. Win7 boots up in no time. Beats by a large margin my Velociraptor and my Raid0 raptor drives. Excellent customer service and support.

Cons: New Technology so not as easy to install than a normal drive. Still expensive...for that price I could have had 3TB of HD but the price will come down in time.

Overall Review: I posted a previous review about this where I gave it two stars for the fact that my previous one failed and that OCZ was giving me little hopes to get a new one in a fair delay. Now, I have to change my review because they sent me already another brand new one... much earlier than expected and with the Turbo version. Thank you OCZ! You have restored my faith!

Do NOT use USPS if you want a good rating!

I ordered a flashlight 9 days ago and still have not received it. The tracking number is not working so I have no clue where my item is. I already spoke twice with a customer representative who informed me that USPS was doing the last part of the delivery and that they got the package 6 days ago. Ultimately, I do not care. What I want is my package delivered within a reasonable time frame and visibly USPS is not capable of guaranteeing it. Conclusion, sellers should not use an unreliable service that degrades the overall quality of the experience. Lastly, being told to check myself with USPS is not professional. SunValley should investigate and fix my trouble!
