This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Pros: Windows 7 home premium x 64 bit
Supports up to 16 gigs of ram
Class fantatstic os
I am sure when 2020 comes around it will be morned and praised as highly if not more so as windows XP
I have been using windows 7 on my laptop for almost 4 years now
and I recently built a machine on windows 7 pro so I figured I would write a review as there aren't that many helpful reviews on this site presently imo.
Cons: Execution date of 2020 is set.
Boots a bit slower than windows 8/8.1 ( if you are on 8 do yourself a favor and upgrade to 8.1 before shelling out 100 for windows 7)
GAMERS: Direct X 12 will likely not be coming to Windows 7, no cause to be alarmed if you purchase win 7 right now you are elgible to upgrade to 10 which will have Dx12 free of charge, but it will not be free of hassle which is something to keep in mind.
There are easily 200 updates for windows 7 so set aside at least 3 hours for updates but that is to be expected for an os that has been around as long as 7.
Doesnt know to not defrag ssds. Be sure to set that to never happen if you install this on an ssd.
Other Thoughts: This is OEM software. It comes as 64 bit and 64 bit only, there is also a 32 bit only oem software on newegg. 32 bit will limit you to 4 gigs of ram or less. Many people have asked what is the difference between oem and retail. As far as the os itself is concerned, nothing. HOWEVER OEM is limited to ONE machine. You build your build install the os and boom. All you are able to change in your build is your cpu, ram, gpu and Hard drive or SSD. Upgrading a motherboard will requrie you to repurchase windows on oem software.
Hope this helps!
This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager Slider 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSL3B-32GB
Pros: Nice to hold and feels sturdy enough. For I paid 14 usd for a usb 3.0 32 gig flash drive. So was a good bargain.
I get usb write and read speeds on small files (20-50MB is small for me)
I like the design.
Blue led is nice
Cons: Unfortunately write speeds substantially decline on larger files. After about 120MBs into a larger file the speed drops to about 14mb/s. I am not talking about email files or a bundle of little files I am talking about iso files. Large raw data. My old usb 3.0 would hold 100MBps transfer speeds on those files. This version of the Flash Voyager Slider is not the one you want if you need rapid transfer speeds of Large files (500mb+)
The usb plug is a little wiggly now but that tends to happen to all flash drives after some use.
Other Thoughts: For the price I paid this is not a bad flash drive by any means. -1 egg for not meeting my expectation on write speeds of larger files. Full retail value however, I would look at some newer revisions of matching prices with better write speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-SF1005D 10/100Mbps 5-Port Unmanaged Desktop Switch, Power-Saving
Fast enough for my needs
Was really a steal of a price when I got it.
I am a currently a college student and in my dorm I only have two Ethernet ports available to me. This is a problem when I have my desktop my laptop my tv my gfs laptop and other things I like to hook up to Ethernet when I am working on them. I also frequently attend lan parties and college wifi is pretty inconsistent when it comes to gaming/streaming/downloading. This thing is nice and portable for such occasions.
Cons: If any exist it might be that it is limited to 100mbps so if you are lucky enough to have gigabit connection speeds you might want to look elsewhere.
Other Thoughts: When you are looking at switches the two big questions I think you need to ask yourself is how many devices will I be using, and how badly/if at all do I need 1000mbps speeds. I got this little guy for ten smackaroones and I couldn't be happier. Downloaded 7.5 gigs in 22 minutes through this little guy just last night while 3 other buddies were playing league and watching netflix. 100mbps is not slow lol. 10/10 would buy again.READ FULL REVIEW
