This review is from: Powerland 4000 W Portable Gas Generator - 7.5 HP
Pros: The price was excellent for this unit. Runs 12 hours on a tank of gas. Puts out enough watts to keep essentials running.
Cons: A little tough to get the supporting wood block and metal bracket off.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CyberPower 7050SG 5 ft 7 Outlets 2000 J Energy Saving Surge Suppressor
Pros: Great for shutting off external power bricks on computers, turn off the computer, turns off the external drive power brick, no wasted electricity, no wear on the brick.
Cons: Shove the green plugs further toward the end for large plugs.
Other Thoughts: Recommended, one of the few power saving units in a decent price range, I own 5, what does that tell you?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This Quad core refurbished is a solid computer. Runs cool, easy to upgrade (if you want to). Has a large 1 TB hard drive (with room a second one if tucked under the DVD burner). Easy to add RAM, but be careful that you follow HP's requirements on size (check the service manual online for RAM slot use). This unit is built like a tank. CPU cooling is handled with a front mounted fan that blows directly across it. Very quiet machine, virtually silent. Since it comes with Win7 Pro, I upgraded to Win10 Pro and the system does very well. Access to the inside is the best I've seen with no screws to remove the panel, just a simple release handle (I have 10 computers running in my home). Comes with DVD RW (rewrite capable) drive, not just a DVD read only drive.
Cons: Came with 4 GB of RAM, which fails to utilize the abilities of a 64 bit operating system, so I upgraded by adding 4 GB more. I also added an Asus 1 GB Radeon video card (not really a negative but I wanted to boost the overall system performance).
Other Thoughts: Highly recommend this computer. You won't be disappointed. Handles Win10 perfectly and has a large 1 TB Hitachi hard drive. I would (and I do) use an external USB drive to store C Drive images using Acronis or Aomei Backupper (free version) for easy restoration of the OS. That's a real time-saver if you partition the C drive to use around 100 gigs and use the rest of the space for storage of your music/videos/graphics, etc. That makes the images smaller and faster to make and restore if needed.READ FULL REVIEW
