Pros: Good condition for a Grade B, Packaged well, had proper memory and processor. All drives are sata. Everything runs quiet, a simple blowout for dust bunnies was all it needed. Also came pre-installed with windows 7 x64 and a few other key software's plus windows backup discs for both x86 & x64. For an upgrade from a Pentium 4 Celeron to this for the price is 'sick'.
Cons: See below, none really.
Other Thoughts: Started as a slight Con: Came with a 'not-so-hot' dvd drive. Had to bang on the case to get it to open. I called the number referenced in the mailing slips, left a message, they called back an hour or so later, and within 5 minutes they were sending me a 'new' DVD drive. I expected a used one in better condition but it appears I instead actually received a new one. Con rectified. Very Pleased.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great printer, easy to set up, fantastic quality you have come to expect from BROTHER.
Cons: Uses newer version of BROTHER's 'Control Center', version 4 - This is not backwards compatible as you would think it would be with other BROTHER printers using older control centers. What this means for you, is that if you like using this software, and have older printers on your computer/network, be prepared to run BOTH version of the Control Center on all computers you want to utilize both printers... C'mon BROTHER, we expected more from the leader in printer tech...
Also this uses the new 101/103/105 series cartridges - same as old ones except they have the 'counter chips'. Be aware...
Other Thoughts: The counter chip will NOT make it so you CAN'T print, just make it very annoying (have to clear annoying message from screen after EVERY page when counter hits threshold). Still a shame in a world screaming for sustainability to market something like this...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOPOWER ZU-500W 500W ATX12V Ver. 2.0 Power Supply
Pros: NewEgg comes through again with fast shipping.
Cons: Lighted fan was in the back, not the 'bottom' as pictured, the picture is misleading (or my unit was at very least.)
I ran this unit under nominal load, and it failed in 8 months, which is no where near the expected life span of a power supply, especially since I do not use the system but an hour or two a day. I can see why I got it on sale now...
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this unit to anyone.READ FULL REVIEW
