Intel Core i5-4670 Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54670 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cool, efficient, and powerful. Excellent integrated graphics, even compared to APUs.

Cons: Does not make toast or other foodstuffs.

Other Thoughts: Recently centered a new build around this CPU. I was impressed to see that not only did it exceed all my expectations in the raw processing department, but that the integrated graphics were powerful enough to play most of my older games on high and even certain games on medium that I thought would be unplayable until I invested in a GPU. This was a big plus for me; I spent a lot of time pricing APU's and reading up on them and if I had known HD 4600 worked as well as it did I wouldn't have even considered APU's for a second, considering that my rig is geared for equal parts gaming and development/graphics.

That aside, regarding the unlocked version, which seems to be the preferred standard for this series, I'd urge people to consider that its not just an unlocked processor you're buying; you have to have a mobo that supports overclocking and you'll probably want a GPU that's unlocked, too, and then an efficient enough cooling system to support all this. When you factor in all these things you'll easily end up spending another 200 bucks on a system just to be able to overclock it, which really doesn't make sense for most people considering all that could changed in the world of computers in another few years and how excellent current technologies already are at base clock speeds.

Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Drive functions well, haven't had any problems so far. About to purchase another one to put in RAID1 with the first.

Cons: It's not a petabyte SSD, and it doesn't shoot lasers or prepare lattes.

Other Thoughts: I have no loyalty to brands when it comes to hard drives, but I also own a WD external drive that's older than the sun and have some different WD HD's on an older computer and I've never had any problems with them.

LG 27EA33V Black 27
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent screen at price point 02/19/2014

This review is from: LG 27EA33V Black 27" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor, IPS-Panel 200 cd/m2

Pros: Great colors, very lightweight, power button LED isn't forward-facing (thank you LG, overly bright LED's are a pet peeve of mine). No dead pixels or edge bleeding at all. Sharp, clear, consistent picture.

Cons: Darks aren't as great as they could be and refresh rate can cause ghosting, but that's not specific to this screen, it's specific to the type of screen it is. LG also needs to redesign their ugly logo...sorry, but its true :/ lol

Other Thoughts: Very happy with purchase overall, would recommend to others. I play video games and do graphics work and I tend to be obsessive over minutia, but this screen fully meets my qualifications. On a budget you'd be very hard pressed to find anything better, even if you looked into Korean markets as I know some people do.
