HP Debranded Desktop PC INTEL i7 3770 (3.4Ghz) 4GB DDR3 RAM 2TB HDD DVDRW LS Windows 8 Pro 64 Bit [HP Debranded]
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: i7 desktop for about five hundred bucks

Cons: The pictures of this product are very misleading.

First off, they showed a GPU in the PCI-E slot. No GPU was supplied.

Secondly, it listed 4GB of RAM, and the pictures show a single stick. Because of this I ordered a second 4GB stick. When the PC arrived, it actually contained 2x2GB sticks, meaning I now have an unmatched 4GB stick.

The CPU fan has a loud and annoying whine.

The Hard-Drive bay is overly complicated. You have to unscrew several screws and remove the entire bay just to put in or take out a hard drive.

It is "debranded" by putting ugly black stickers all over every mention of "HP". The really ugly Globe logo that you can see in the pictures was actually put right on top of the old HP sticker, so when I tried to peel it off I was left with a scruffed up sticker backing.

Stupid OEM versions of Windows... such a pain. If you want to use a different drive as your boot drive, you will need to find some cloning utility that works for you so that you can migrate the existing partition over to your new drive. YOU CANNOT SIMPLY RE-INSTALL WINDOWS USING THE PRODUCT KEY PROVIDED.

Other Thoughts: When crunching the numbers, I found that I would save about $100 by getting this pre-built PC over buying all the components new.

I really wish I had spent the extra $100. Having a retail version of Windows would be enough to justify that cost. But all the other reasons I listed in the cons too.

GIGABYTE GM-M6880 Metal Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Very good mouse, but not perfect 07/18/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GM-M6880 Metal Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: - Cheap! i got it for about fifteen bucks, and there was not really anything else in this price point that seemed comparable.

- Comfortable. I have large-ish hands, and it fits pretty well. It could be a tad larger, but while that would suit me, it would probably turn more people off.

- Tracks well. Taking it through the paces in a few games, and I was very pleased at how well it tracked.

Cons: - The "back" and "forward" buttons that are near where your thumb rests are not very easy to get to and press. It's a bit of an awkward position, and they require a little more force to press than necessary.

- It's pretty light. I prefer something that has a little more weight to it.

- People have complained about the DPI switching when they didn't want it to. I haven't experienced this yet, but I am aware that it is an issue.

Other Thoughts: This is a really nice mouse. Especially for the price. I like the scroll wheel on it too. It has very faint "clicks" when scrolling. I hate the wheels that just spin freely with no clicking. I haven't had it long enough to comment on its durability.

If you need a decent mouse on a budget, or you are looking for a good backup, this should be at the top of your list.

Samsung ML-2165W/XAC Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great little printer 11/20/2013

This review is from: Samsung ML-2165W/XAC Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Cost - This goes on sale pretty frequently, and at the sale price it is a very good value. At full MSRP it would be a little over-priced

Speed - Only takes 10 - 20 seconds to wake up and warm up, and then, as it says, prints 20 ppm.

Really the best thing about this is that the toner doesn't dry out like inkjet cartridges do (this is true of all laser printers). I only need to print once in a while, and with my old inkjet printers the ink was always dried up when I actually needed it. I'm still using the toner cartridge that came with it (16 months ago) and it's still printing great

Small footprint - doesn't take up too much space on your desk or wherever it ends up.

Cons: Getting the wi-fi set up can be a bit of a chore.

There are 2 buttons that light up, and this is the only indication of status. It can be hard to decipher.

Never could get WPS to work

Replacement toner cartridges are a bit more expensive than other brands.

I've had a few pages print out that were slightly diagonal on the page. I think the paper grabber can be a little over-zealous at times and it can get a little catty-wompus. But this is a rarity, and it's only off by a few degrees when it happens. For the low-volume type use it should be getting this won't be a problem
