This review is from: Koutech Single Parallel PCI (SPP/PS2/EPP/ECP) Card Model IO-PP110
Pros: Got this for a client who needed a parallel port for a old printer with her new build. Still working great, easy to setup and use with Windows 7.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've bought this same drive for others before and this one doesn't disappoint. Much quicker than the OEM 320gb 5400rpm 8mb cache drive. Works very well.
Cons: Of course while this one was being shipped the 750gb version went on sale for the same price. No fault of the 500gb of course! No cons.
Other Thoughts: I usually get these for clients who's OEM laptop drive is either failing or failed as this will usually be faster than the stock drive, and they enjoy the peace of mind that a 5 year warranty offers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, low low low cost, expandable and upgradable, silent. has legacy I/O ports along with a total of 8 usb ports (2 front/6 rear), decent CPU and RAM for the $. Mine came with a Pentium E2180 2ghz cpu. No issues and came with a much nicer keyboard than most other refurbished computers. A great replacement computer to replace a windows XP computer. Can take up to 8gb RAM (4x2gb DDR2).
Cons: Scuffed (but you need to expect this with used computers) 4 memory slots were filled with 512mb sticks, upgrade will require removal. Most other refurbished with 2gb come with 1x2gb or 2x1gb. Not a big deal on this machine as it will be used for guest registrations 7 months out of the year.
Other Thoughts: All in all a great little computer for the money, really a darn good bargain even without the $10 MIR. Happy to see the PCIx 16x slot is a real one, HPs business computers came for a while with a slot that looked like a 16x, but wasn't usable for expansion cards. This computer is replacing a sempron XP dell that was already years past needing replacement for a recreational park & campground that is open 7 months out of the year. For most who want to avoid windows 8 and their old XP computer was working ok but not worth it financially to upgrade (cost of OS and labor if they aren't tech savvy) this computer or any like it are well worth it. WAY better than risking it with an unpatchable OS.READ FULL REVIEW
