Pros: How did you get it for $70???
Cons: Was that a special deal? From what my research shows, this is one of the cheaper units that can actually transfer VHS to DVD. At $70 I'm all in, but $170 for a refurb, I don't know.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap price, NC red case, UNC blue power light, one fan, light weight, includes power supply.
Cons: Missing a few screws with included hardware, not enough holes for mb, flimsy metal case, you have to remove both panels to install or remove drives, optical drives have to inserted from the front by poping off the face plate, power supply "iffy", power supply connectors substandard, non replaceable pci slot covers, no thought with interior design, power supply overrated ~ 330 watts continuous, only two SATA power feeds, short power feed cables, snap-off plastic front face plate is weak, instruction manual is non-existent, case probably made of recycled coke cans.
Other Thoughts: Good deal if it is free. There are worse cases out there... somewhere, if you look hard enough.
This was me and my son's first build and when we opened the case we didn't know much, but when we watched a build video with a better case, we knew we should have spent more on the case.
The power supply sucks like a new vacuum cleaner on 220 volts. Just sayin', if you want something you can depend on, get a certified power supply. A power supply can eat and spit out the rest of your components.
I hate it, but you can buy refurbished and scratch and dents for what we put it to this build. Plus they come with an operating system.
But it was a blast to make our first one from scratch!!! Kind of like birthing your first kid.
But then when he's 19, he wrecks your car and drops out of school.
Pros: Just a heads up. This is not the second generation 8GB Kindle Fire with one GB of RAM and the newer 4.0 operating system. I repeat... not. The 2nd gen one goes for not much more new. It is also not the Kindle Fire HD. That doesn't go for much more than the 2nd generation one. This is an older first gen model that might not be worth the $35 savings over the newer, faster, and more streamlined $159 version.
So the $199.99 price for this refurbished when it was new that Newegg quotes is from 2011. You can buy the new HD with 16 GB storage, HD display, faster processor, and better software for $199 today, or even a better 2nd generation Kindle Fire for $159. New.
Cons: It's old. It might be able to be flashed and updated. I haven't done the research on that.
Other Thoughts: Most reviews give the nod to the Nexus 7 for everyday use unless you are a Prime member.READ FULL REVIEW
