AMD A10-7850K Kaveri 12 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 8 GPU) 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD785KXBJABOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7 series
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, built in graphics that are actually fairly decent for onboard, definitely an impressive little chip for what it is.

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: Didn't use the factory cooler that comes with it but instead used a Cooler Master GeminII M4 due to clearance issues but was able to use a standard fan instead of the slim fan which comes with that cooler. I'm using it with the MSI A88XM Gaming motherboard and it's been great. I'm using Ubuntu and I built this mainly for htpc and also steam client to play games on my tv.

Just ordered an MSI r7 250 to try out dual graphics with it.

SAMSUNG S22C650D Matte Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great monitor, sharp image and no dead pixels.

Cons: Everytime when you power on the monitor the menu pops open for a few seconds then goes away. I've went through the settings and cannot find a way to disable it.

Other Thoughts: The computer I'm using this with the onboard video only has vga & display port outputs and if needed I would buy another one again.

The menu popup to me is annoying though.

Linksys RE6500 Wireless AC1200 Dual Band MAX Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works fairly well and increased coverage. I have a Linksys usb wireless ac adapter and can connect my computer at 433.5 mbps and cell phone is faster online. Can connect a computer that doesn't have wireless capability on the network.

Cons: Is a bit of a hassle to setup and I don't like how in the beginning you have to go through those steps but once you go through them you can get into the configuration page just like any Linksys router. The default ip is 192.168.1.1 which is the default for Linksys routers but when I got into the configuration it was set to dhcp so it did use a different address so at least I didn't have a conflict going on.

Other Thoughts: Once you get it configured you don't really have to mess with it anymore. I went ahead and statically assigned the address to 192.168.1.2. My router is Linksys E3000 and it works great together and I have it working with both the 2.4 and 5ghz channels.

I'd say the biggest difference I've notice is with my cell phone which is an older blackberry that has wireless g and it's a lot faster now loading the pages when browsing the web.

I know that since my router is not an ac router it can only transmit between it and the range extender at wireless n speeds but still nice to have if I choose to upgrade with an ac router in the future.

One last thing... you don't want to use a cable from one of the ports back into your network and you will create a wired/wireless loopback which is not a good thing.

A long time ago I used an old laptop as a wireless bridge with a crossover cable to work with an old desktop that didn't have a wireless adapter to have internet but one of these would've been great to have back then.
