Dell Latitude D630c 14.1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Reliable, Dell Laptop quality
Easy to service
Tough, rigid design. Made to take a beating
Can run Windows 8
Many upgrade options
Seller is A+
Came with 9 cell batteries

Cons: Ordered 2 of these, one shipped without a dvd drive
Touchpad a bit small
Had to hunt down drivers for Win 8
Both 9 cell batteries are on their last limbs. One of them holds a good charge for a long time, One doesn't. The bios recommends a replacement on both.

Other Thoughts: Like I said, I ordered 2 of these. One of them shipped without a dvd drive. How did that pass quality assurance? lol. Contacted the seller who immediately shipped the missing drive, at their cost.
I must say, these are good, bang for your buck laptops. The CPU still holds up to today's standards. The design is simple if you need to open it up and service it or upgrade it. The keyboards are excellent. Speakers sound tinny, but go loud.

I bought 2 so I could use one as a loaner to customers while I work on their PC/laptop. And one for my kids to play with. No complaints from either. It can run simpler games like Minecraft and Roblox easily. Just turn the gfx down a bit.

The aluminum casing tells you that these things are made to take punishment. Most plastic laptops last a year, maybe 2. This thing's still going. What does that tell you? That's why you see so many older, aluminum macbooks fetching a high price. Good buy.

MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great, stable board 03/05/2015

This review is from: MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Cool looks (although the MSI dragon logo gets blocked by your vid card), stable performance, everything on the board is placed where it should be (fan headers by the fans, usb and front panel audio on the bottom, etc). Games run great.>
Blacklight Retribution
COD (Black Ops and up)

Cons: Would have like a second CPU fan header for my dual fan heatsink. Also, there's only 2, 4 pin system fan headers and 1, 3 pin header. So if you rely on air cooling, you can only control 3 fans.

Other Thoughts: Don't read the negative reviews. These people that are complaining and giving 1 egg...It seems only after they have tried overclocking. That's on you, not the hardware. There are ample warnings from both AMD and MSI about overclocking their stuff. That's no excuse to RMA something and give it a bad rating. It's on you.

My current set up is:
MSI 970 gaming
AMD FX-8350
16 GB G Skill RAM
MSI R9 270x (2gb)

OS is stable, Games run great, no problems whatsoever.
In short..If your build is like mine, there's no need to OC. And if you do, any complications afterwards is your fault.

TP-LINK TL-WR842ND N300 Multi-function Wireless Router
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Unreliable WiFi 02/23/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR842ND N300 Multi-function Wireless Router

Pros: Cheap, USB port for network storage.

Cons: Same problems as someone else had posted. The Wifi speeds are inconsistent and randomly drop connection. I guess I'll give ddwrt a try and see if that helps.
