Pros: Runs fast! I was pleasantly surprised! Even though it has no graphics card i'm impressed with the performance. Full screen HD runs great with no stuttering. The machine is very quiet (especially compared to the old desktop I replaced). It has TONS of USB ports. NO BLOATWARE! I love this. Very few things I had to uninstall (McAfee Virus being the main one). I like the looks of the computer (glossy black). Might attract dust but it's hiding under the desk. Knowing that I can upgrade this is great (PCI graphics card). The price was cheap! Try to find an intel core I3 with 6gb ram and 1TB hard drive for under 500 anywhere else. WINDOWS 7! Not packaged with 8 so I enjoy that!
Cons: Integrated graphics (it was under 500 bucks so can't expect high level graphics card).
Other Thoughts: It's nice to work in the quiet. This computer is already serving me well. I use it as a work computer and it can do everything I throw at it. It's a great little machine. You can't go wrong for under 500!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good surge protector for the price! Plenty of outlets and I have a lot of comp stuff to plug in. Good mix of outlets available for AC adapters.
Cons: Looks like Newegg ran over the box with a forklift. Find it ironic there were loads of packing peanuts. To protect the damage? At least it works and doesn't appear to be damaged itself.
Other Thoughts: Why would the person putting this in the box think it was a good idea to send one with a beat to heck box?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MOTOROLA SB5101U SURFboard Cable Modem USB and Ethernet 10/100Base-T DOCSIS 2.0
Pros: When this modem worked it was fine. Stayed up, didn't have to reset it barely ever, and speed was decent and above what I should be getting. Seemed to be rock solid.
Cons: Out of the blue the upstream on this modem failed. The upload speed would read 0kbps on a speed test or less then half of 1 mbit. Contacting Charter they came and looked and said it was the modem. Calling Motorola they said "abosolutely not". 2nd Tech said has seen this before on this modem (although "rare") and that replacing it would fix it. I was skeptical but ended up replacing with Motorola all in one wireless cable modem. The new modem works so it's the modem. This should not fail right at a year. (2 year warranty)
Other Thoughts: Very disappointed. Should not have failed at this point. After reading the glowing reviews, I figured these were isolated incidents. The new wireless all in one solution works but I can't help but feel a bit worried. There really isn't much out there in terms of options for cable modems other then motorola...READ FULL REVIEW
