HP  Pavilion  25xi 25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quality and clarity of the screen

Cons: One of them arrived with a crack in the display, but no physical damage on the monitor. Talking to HP, they said it's not covered under warranty. I'm never buying another HP product since this is how they treat customers. I spent 1 hour on the phone with someone in India who was arguing with me, a customer, on why HP should not repair the monitor. Funny how all the other monitors (Samsung, Dell, LG, Lenovo, etc.) give me excellent service and replace the monitor immediately.

TOSHIBA MQ01ABF050H 500GB/SLC 8GB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great for older systems still running Windows XP 03/22/2014

This review is from: TOSHIBA MQ01ABF050H 500GB/SLC 8GB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD)

Pros: I purchased 3 of these from a local vendor. The older systems I put them into are still running Windows XP. Performance improvement was very noticeable on these systems, and I don't have to deal with issues of alignment that SSDs have on XP. Great cost savings compared to my normally installing an Intel or Samsung SSD for TRIM support.

Cons: I don't trust UPS for delivering hard drives

Other Thoughts: I will post again if there are any issues with the drives, but 3 months, and they're still performing well.

These are very tiny drives and have to be packaged well. That's why I purchased them from a local vendor, since I don't trust how UPS delivers packages.

ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0 LGA 775 VIA PT880 Pro/PT880 Ultra ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This board has proven to be a reliable workhorse since I first purchased two in 2008. It's now 2013, and they're both working fine. I purchased it primarily for AGP support, as well as PATA and SATA-2

Cons: It's a combo board that only has 2 DDR2,and 2 DDR memory slots. It only supports up to DDR2-667. It can't be overclocked very well.

Other Thoughts: I was thinking of buying a couple more of these boards recently to provide a home for some E2160, and unfortunately they're no longer available. Although there appears to be another ASRock board that has AGP PATA (but only DDR and SATA -1150)
