This review is from: Changhong 50" 1080p LED HDTV - LED50YC2000UA
Pros: For the last year and a half it has been a great TV. However, read my cons...
Cons: I bought this a year and a half ago. Today I turned it on and the bottom half is jittery. The warranty is of course only 1 year so it would seem that Changhong knows how to make a good TV that will last just past the warranty period.
Other Thoughts: This will be the last time I buy anything made by Changhong. No matter how good the price is if it only lasts 18 months it will cost you way more than a good one like Samsung or LG.
This is a classic example of "You get what you pay for"!
This review is from: HP Desktop Computer ProDesk 400-G1 Intel Core i3 4360 (3.7 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit pre-installed / with licensing and media to upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit
Pros: I bought this to replace a computer in our office. It was mostly free of any bloatware and came with Microsoft Security Essentials installed. I'm not the biggest fan of that anti-virus but at least it wasn't some 30 day trial of McAfee or Norton. Considering it's a i3 with 8GB it was pretty fast.
They installed a single stick of 8GB of memory. This is nice if you were going to upgrade to 16GB because then you wouldn't essentially be throwing away 2 - 4GB sticks of memory.
Overall, this is a good, solid workstation for any office. If you have a specific, more intensive, software program like AutoCAD or Adobe Premier Pro you might want to consider a different model.
For most employees who run Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook) or Quickbooks it will easily handle all their needs and do it fast.
Cons: My only negative is that about the video card. There isn't any information on the product page that tells you this but the connector is a DMS-59. WTH is this? It is a special adapter type that requires a splitter style cable. In my case it came with a cable that splits into (2) VGA ports. This worked out in my case since the user was already using 2 monitors via a usb to vga adapter. So I can get eliminate that, however, if they had needed DVI, or worse, DVI-D I might have been in trouble. Again the only reason I would count this as a "con" is that no where on the product page does it say that. You would have to google AMD Radeon HD 8350 to know it was something different.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS H97-PRO GAMER LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: nothing... absolutely not one thing positive to say about this board. Actually I do have one thing. It finally died! That is a huge positive becuase for the last 3 days it's been awful and I kept thinking it had to be something else because it's a brand new motherboard. Finally tonight when I turn it on I get the Asus splash screen with hit F2 or DEL to enter bios and that's as far as it goes. So thank you for finally walking into the light and letting me get on with my life!
Cons: Where can I even begin? I won't bore you with the awful mess the last 72 hrs have been. Let me just say that I knew I was in trouble when various components started not working. The first to go was the network adapter and after that it was a slow fall down the rabbit hole. I'll be returning this junk and getting a better (more reliable) one from another company.
Other Thoughts: I doubt I'll ever buy another asus product again. Everything I've bought from them in the last year has ended up getting returned or sent back for warranty. This is the last time for me!READ FULL REVIEW
