This review is from: MASSCOOL 8W553B1M3 90mm Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: It looks and works better than an OEM cooler. It dropped
my cpu temp by 10 degrees C. I figure if the OEM cooler
is adequate to ensure the manufacturer's warranty then this
one should make it last even better since it runs cooler.
Cons: Nothing particular wrong with this cooler.
Other Thoughts: It would be niggling to criticize the quality or the parts
build level. You get what you pay for. It isn't the best made
cooler out there but it isn't the most expensive either.
To say "you get what you pay for" isn't always true. I would
say "you never get more than you pay for and sometimes
you get a whole lot less". In any event, for the price this
is a sold performer.
Pros: It's pretty quiet. It burns disks that have no compatibility
problems. It reads, rips and burns. For the price it is great.
I am running this drive on systems with XP, Vista Business
and Windows 7 and it likes them all.
Cons: At this price point, there are no negatives. It is worth
the purchase price just to listen to the drive wind up.
Even if it didn't work, it would be worth that much.
Other Thoughts: This drive is a commodity. The price is so low that you can
use it to extinction and replace it without stretching your
wallet. I once paid $169 for a 1X CD-ROM reader with a
proprietary interface card. Now, I get a 24X DVD burner for
$14.99......what's not to like.
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Pros: If you don't know what Windows 7 is, then you wouldn't
be reading this. I just figured I better buy a couple of
extra copies of this before the hoarders get them all. Once
people start bailing out of Windows 8 these might become
Cons: Can't think of any right now. This is an OEM program and not retail so it is what it is.
Other Thoughts: You probably know that this OEM version can't be reinstalled
on your system or moved to another system but since it costs only half of a full retail copy you won't lose money even if you have to buy another one in case of major system mods that invalidate this copy. Seems worth the gamble.
