5 out of 5 eggs EVGA - GeForce GT 730, part: 02G-P3-3733-KR, works in older Dell Inspiron 580 with BIOS A07 07/03/2016

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GT 730 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 02G-P3-3733-KR 2GB 64-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: GeForce GT 730 works great in older Dell Inspiron 580 with I5 CPU, stock 300W PSU and with BIOS A07.

Plug and play--- NO Drama

Nice update from the original GT 220; for this basic PC !

EVGA has a great warranty and support. Helpful forum members on EVGA site are willing to assist others.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Was not bought for gaming, just basic PC use: internet surfing, streaming movies and other basics.

New life to an older PC, with this GPU and a SSD upgrade

ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Many advanced features. Adjustable antennas are removable if you want to upgrade them. The Asus firmware and software updates have been easy enough to install.

Fast & stable

Cons: The printer port / USB port have proven trouble some to use - Not Plug & Play. (-1 egg)

Unit does tend to run Hot as it uses about 10 watts of power.

Very Poor cooling design (like most routers) the Design team makes the case "stylish" rather than functional for natural cooling.

Other Thoughts: My Cooler Master case has a large fan on the top so ** I passively cool the Router, seems to improve reliability / stability.

Hey - ASUS - put a fan in your routers or add a grill on the top for natural convection to keep this 10 watt beast cool.

Your going to need to read up on the feature if IT networking is not your field - LOTS of great features - may overwhelm the casual user.

LG 24X DVD Burner - Bare Drive 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model GH24NS95

Pros: When it worked it was adequate but not specifically good at being quick or quiet.

Cons: DIE in less than 2 years; was used less than 3 dozen time in a secondary PC. My PCs are protected by UPS to prevent surge of unstable voltage issues and I always follow proper anti-static discharge procedure. So, their is no reasonable reason after so ;little use that this LG 24X DVD drive decides one day to not only stop working but actually stops the PC from completing POST.

Other Thoughts: Buy something else. I have never had a DVD/ CD drive just role over and play dead before. The fact that it stopped the PC from booting would lead me to believe something shorted-outr on the control board. I tried new SATA cable and 2 different SATA ports, it is definitely a dead drive.
