This review is from: ESET Smart Security 2015 - 3 PCs
Pros: I've been buying Eset Smart Security for over a decade. Never a single problem and I've bought numerous 3-PC suites for personal and client use. No, I am not a shill for them but go out of my way to defend them when a problem arises that is obviously "user error". One shouldn't give 1 star to a product until they've contacted the vendor directly. The inability to follow directions should not be the fault of the vendor. After all these years, ESet still supplies an American whose primary language is English on the tech support staff. Try to get that on the other 90 or so percent of the vendors that claim they are an American company. Try to complain to the other vendors about a problem in miscommunication similar to the problem of not getting the vendor to help consumers resolve a simple issue of licensing and see how fast they react. You'll be lucky if you even get an e-mail after a week or a tech that speaks English you can understand.
Cons: If I am from another part of the world, why don't Eset techs speak my language? After all, I'm buying the software and Eset refuses to sell their company to us so we can hire people for ten dollars a week.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Newegg service and price
Quality through and through
Sturdy and Awesome Styling
Cons: Duh! I guess the reset button is microscopic but it works so......?
Other Thoughts: Excellent value. Tried a Bitfenix Colossus mini-ITX case for my first mini-ITX build. I might have to do a post review on it. Beautiful styling but quality of parts lacking after only a year. This case by Corsair is extraordinary in every way and made my build much easier than the Bit Fenix. The appointments are well laid out and it was a pleasure putting the machine together. Going to try the value-priced Cooler Master Elite 130 next but, for a little more cash, I still appreciate and enjoy the looks and quality of this case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler
Pros: Noctua quality; reasonable price, mostly favorable reviews at all web sites
Cons: This cooler won't bring my CPU to ambient temperature but, after a few days for the thermal paste to melt in, it remains in low 30s 9Celsius, of course)
Other Thoughts: Most Intel CPUs run hot, especially the latest ones due to the narrow thickness and continuing defiance of companies to conform to Moore's Law. I only have a 4790 on an 1150 motherboard in a Mini-ITX case but I wanted it that way. I usually build a PC every 2 or 3 years so why spend a pile of money just to be the leader of the pack for a few months? The machine is plenty fast enough for me, running an SSD on WIndows 10 with a Nvidia960 and 16 GB RAM. I don't overclock much either so what's the point in getting liquid cooling? I'm too old to have a sugar mama to give me a hefty allowance for my passions. Even after a heavy load of multi-tasking, the temps drop down to the low 30s fast enough for me. I chose wisely so the cooler and all the other parts didn't break the bank either.READ FULL REVIEW
