Vantec Power Gem White 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-WH
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Simple, two ports for devices. Great for powering the kids devices in the car on those really long road trips. One of these will deliver roughly a third recharge on a Kindle HD tablet or full charge on a phone.

Vantec customer service was good and getting an RMA# for the defective ones was really simple. The turn around wasn't too long and haven't had a failure since.

Cons: first two out of four failed with some weird flashing light error.

Other Thoughts: Considering that I picked them up on one of the NewEgg deals for 9.99 each these were definitely a great deal.

The odd battery failure I suspect had to do with the cable I used to charge the batteries. It was a rapid charger for a blackberry. After the second failure I stopped using that cable for the batteries.

ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Great base for a Media System 12/09/2013

This review is from: ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Fired up and worked as expected out of the box. System runs stable with no crashes using windows 7 64, a Phenom 9950 and a Sapphire 4850 with DVI. Typical hours of use per day is roughly 16.

Cons: Nothing noted but we also do not play high end 3d games with this system.

Other Thoughts: This is the core of our entertainment system. If we're not watching TV on it, it's playing videos or music. It is also the media server for the house. With two teens this little box does a lot of networked media in the house.

AMD A8-6600K Richland Quad-Core 3.9GHz Socket FM2 100W Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8570D AD660KWOHLBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, works well for typical house hold use.

Cons: System chokes on any kind of load. P states flutter like a leaf in the wind.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if it's the chip or the MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 it's paired with but give this system any kind of loading and it starts throttling down to a low power state. If you need an quick system for office stuff this will fit the bill with out the need for a graphics card. Anything more demanding I would skip this and go for a full quad core and video card.
