Pros: Was very weary of buying a refurbed item, but saw this for $80 and couldn't resist. Bought it, received in two days. The packaging was almost I think brand new. Everything came with the card except for a driver CD which may or may not have been in the original packaging. This may have just been an open box. It looked brand spankin new, it even had a plastic peel sticker on the fan still.
Plugged it in and voila, works perfectly out of box with latest drivers from Nvidia. I will be using this as a budget, older parts, performance PC. This will be stored until I get the parts to complete the build for a family member.
Core2Quad Q9400 2.66Ghz $35 shipped (other site)
8GBDDR3 Ram $50 shipped (same as other site)
GTX 470 $80 Newegg!!
1TB storage HDD
All for less than $300
Cons: RUNS REALLY HOT!
Idles at 70*C, and hits 99*c easy with mild gameplay.
Going to be getting an aftermarket cooler, it's unbearable to hear those blower fans again... Coming from a GTX 680... that now has an aftermarket silent cooler that never hits 50*c. Will be getting that same cooler for this 470.
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the money, and the risk. First time buying a refurbed item and was not disappointed, thanks again Newegg for amazing deals as the usual :DREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seiki 40" 1080p 60Hz LED TV - SE40FY27
Pros: At first, this was a great deal. The picture is outstanding (After adjustments of course) and the sound I thought was good enough for me, since I have never really used any good sound systems, it was good. It has been outstanding for the past 7 months, mild gaming, movies here and there..... Until now.
Cons: The picture just flat out stopped showing. I still get audio through the speakers (HDMI), just no image/video, nothin'. When I mean no video, you can't even see the Menus pop-up for the T.V.
I barely even used the T.V. in the 7 months I have owned it, maybe 1-10 hours a week at most.
Other Thoughts: Steer clear of this T.V. and pay a little more for a more reputable/reliable brand. From what I've heard Seiki Customer service is junk. Hopefully the RMA process goes well.... or im out $260...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This monitor does have good crisp imaging.
1080p is a plus as always. Dual HDMI's is nice.
Got it for only $150!
For the price i got it for, it is a pretty good monitor.
upgrade from a nice 21", but decided it's time for a larger monitor, and got this for a steal during the black friday deals.
Came with 0 dead pixels. Luminance equal all around.
Cons: The colors arent the greatest coming from a 21" excellently colored monitor. REALLY have to mess with setting to get it to be somewhat similar to the old 21"er.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'd recommend it. Just not at full retail $300.
This monitor I think is worth a good $200-$240.
