HP Pavilion HPE h8-1234 Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-6120 (3.5GHz) 10GB DDR3 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Refurbished: HP Pavilion HPE h8-1234 Desktop PC 02/20/2013

This review is from: HP Pavilion HPE h8-1234 Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-6120 (3.5GHz) 10GB DDR3 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Pros: Lots of processor(s).
Lots of RAM
Plenty of HD space.
WLAN, Bluetooth, USB3.0, optical Toslink SPDIF
No onboard graphics
Lots of USB headers on the motherboard.
Six SATA ports.
HP Customer Support

Cons: Typical OEM case with few drive bays and not enough spots for fans.
Bad power supply compatibility.
Low-Power video card.

Other Thoughts: This is an excellet computer if you plan on leaving it alone or possibly adding RAM. If you add a hard drive, I think it will heat up too much. With the orientation of the hard drives and only one fan, not counting the power supply, the heat will just build up.
So I tried to move the hardware into a different case. That is when I found out about the power supply incompatibility. I was not sure what the problem was at the time, so I contacted HP Customer Support. I had a few hoops to jump through, but after that, they sent me a box and a shipping label. I am very impressed. They replaced the motherboard and sent it back to me. It worked great until I moved it to another case again. I currently have the same problem.

The power supplies I have tried are a 650-Watt Antec True Power Trio and an 500-Watt Ultra X-Finity.

If anyone has a solution or a list of working power supplies, please let me know.

Philips Sonicare Xtreme 3000 Battery Sonic Toothbrush
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Philips Sonicare Xtreme 3000 Battery Sonic Toothbrush 07/26/2012

This review is from: Philips Sonicare Xtreme 3000 Battery Sonic Toothbrush

Pros: Great price to get a Sonicare toothbrush.
It seems to work very well.

Cons: Water gets in the battery compartment like others have said. This causes the batteries to corrode and leak.
The e Series brush heads are more expensive than other brush heads.

Other Thoughts: I've seen on other sites that some people use petroleum jelly or dielectric grease to keep the battery compartment sealed. I am going to try that on my next one.

Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case 10/23/2010

This review is from: Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: two places for 120mm fans.
comes with one 120mm fan.
9 drive bays.
no need for motherboard standoffs.

Cons: only two holes drilled in side panel holding the cpu vent tube.
blue power led in the power button and yellow hard drive led on its own. It doesn't seem consistent.
I am not a big fan of the punch-out expansion slots, but it seems I cannot escape them.

Other Thoughts: This case is excellent for the money I paid. I got it on sale. The steel wasn't as thin as I expected. It has great ventilation. I replaced the CPU vent tube with an 80mm fan. The front grille allows a lot of airflow.
