Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Good for Games, Nothing Else 02/16/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)

Pros: Due to under the hood tweaks, a lot of hardware is a lot more integrated within the kernel and works great for gaming machines.

Cons: -The "apps" more than likely will not install properly, or if ever install properly making them useless
-Clicking the Menu button brings you to the "apps" menu. As stated above, just useless.
-Who power computes with a tablet? Why make an entire OS geared towards tablets for a desktop machine?

Other Thoughts: Glad I sold my MSFT stock when I did. Except for PC gaming, MSFT products are about useless. Heck, with SteamOS and Steam on Ubuntu, soon, and I believe very soon, no one will have to buy a MSFT product again to PC game. Notice I said PC gaming. XBox One is a whole other debacle in itself. I'm pretty sure finance and business majors could get their doctorate degrees just writing a disrotation on what is going on with MSFT right now.

MSFT, "Hey, we did great things with Windows XP, Windows 7, XBox, and the XBox 360. Heck people even forgave us for Windows 98, ME, and Vista. I have an idea. Let's take everything people love about Windows 7 and throw it in the trash. Do you know what else? Let's take what everybody loves about XBox and throw that out too. Heck, let's force this Kinnect thing down their throats so hard Alex Jones calls us out for spying on the public for the NSA and financial gain. What do you guys think? We won't even try to sugar coat the fact we are trying to mess over our customers. They'll buy our stuff anyway, right? No one will start using Linux. Right?"

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quick and Cheap

Cons: N/A ATT

Other Thoughts: Along with this one and two others in the 120G variaty I have yet to see any issues. I have each one carved up to support multiple OSes for multi-boot PCs. I have read a lot of negative reviews on these, but I have yet to have an issue. So far, so good.

WD Blue WD10JPVX 1TB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid. Got this sucker carved up using a combination of Primary Partitions and Extended Partitions.
No issues so far.

Cons: N/A ATT.

Other Thoughts: I have this in combo with a Mushkin SSD. Using the Mushkin as an OS drive with two OSes and this as the Data/Programs drive for two OSes, boot times are quick, but I still have plenty of storage for what I need.
