This review is from: WD Black² Dual Drive 2.5" 120 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD Kit WD1001X06XDTL
Pros: -120GB SSD and 1TB platter drive in one 2.5" enclosure!
-Breathed new life into an aging HP Pavilion laptop without sacrificing storage space.
-Works as advertised
Cons: Platter drive is only 5400rpm, but I only have music and movies on it, so that's a petty complaint. Upgrading from a SATA I to SATA III is the big difference in my laptop.
Other Thoughts: I have had none of the issues that others are complaining about. I did a fresh WIN 7 install (getting rid of HPs bloatware), enabled the 1TB drive, and started transferring data onto it. It's been working like a charm ever since. Doubling my HP laptop's RAM from 6GB to 12GB, in addition to this SSD/HDD is like having a new computer. It's great!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG 55" 1080p 120Hz Cinema 3D LED TV 55LM4600
Pros: -Crisp, vivid images
-3D looks good
-Extremely thin and light (weighs less than the 50" plasma it replaced)
-Comes with 4 pairs of passive 3D glasses
-Well packaged in it's box. Box had some wear and tear on it, and some styrofoam inside was broken, but the TV was snug and well protected.
Cons: -2D to 3D conversion didn't see any difference at all between 2D and 3D mode. (could have been the movie I was watching).
Not the tv's fault so not worth deducting an egg, but Newegg had this model listed for $799, then on the day I tried to order it, it jumped to about $845, which placed it just a hair out of my range. I ordered the tv from another vendor at $794. Now Newegg has it listed at $799 again, only a week later. Make up your minds Newegg. I have bought a TON of stuff from you in the last year-and-a-half. This is the first time I've chosen another vendor over Newegg due to price.
Other Thoughts: As stated above. This unit replaced a Samsung 50" Plasma 3D 720p as my primary television. ThaT TV is great. i still have it. The LG LED makes a better computer monitor than the plasma. Images are brighter and text is easier to read at 1920x1080. (Plasma's native resolution is 720p, but supports 1080i).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good looking board
Lots of features.
Works as it should. Room to upgrade and overclock.
Other Thoughts: Built a new PC for a friend. Paired this board with an FX-6100 Newegg had on Promo for $105. Had 2x4GB Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz RAM lying around that I added. He's still using his old Zotac GeForce 610 Synergy GDDR3, which is bottlenecking horribly. Just ordered a Zotac 650Ti BOOST. That should solve that issue.READ FULL REVIEW
