This review is from: Vizio E470i-A0 47" 1080p 120Hz Smart LED HD TV with Built-In WiFi Internet Apps
Pros: It has all the pieces
Cons: TV is stuck at the VIZIO startup screen. Starting the RMA process.
Other Thoughts: I tend to stay away from refurbs, and I decided to take a chance. Wish I would have stuck with my gut.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Card is faster than my 5850 hands down. Obviously. Overclocks really well. 1150/1500 with slight volt bump. 1100/1400 at stock voltage. Idles around 32C and max load is around 60C.
Cons: Makes me sad that I am now putting my 5850 in the hardware museum.
Other Thoughts: At $220 this card is a great value. Considering picking up a second one to try a crossfire build.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is memory. Put this in an aging Dell D620 with 1gb of ram.
Cons: A little pricey, however all DDR2 memory appears to be these days. However, the heatsinks make me feel less guilty about the purchase.
Other Thoughts: Added an SSD and a Core 2 Duo T7200 (bought from another site) to the D620. It is like a brand new machine. Xubuntu boots on avg in 7 seconds. With the 1gb ram, Core Duo 1.8ghz processor, and 7200 rpm HDD xubuntu loaded around 45 seconds. Huge improvement. Using the 4gb ram allows me to remove the swap space from the ssd so I can eliminate reads and writes, and hopefully add some longevity to the drive.READ FULL REVIEW
