Pros: Windows 7 Professional, 1 TB hard drive, 4 gig DDR 3, not loaded with a ton of bloatware and the free trial software that was included took less than 10 minutes to uninstall, price was less than cost of OS at the shell shock price I paid for the machine. Was ordered on Tuesday and arrived Friday morning.
Cons: CPU a little dated, included DVD drive is player only, keyboard has a malfunctioning space bar and has to be pressed just right to get it to work, Motherboard does not use a standard power supply and drives are powered through Motherboard its self.
Other Thoughts: Was defiantly worth the cost of admission, Grandma's internet browsing computer was really old and dated and starting to fail. This is a great internet / word processing machine. It has plenty of USB ports front and back. Also after completing all the needed updates to the OS it was eligible for the free Windows 10 update.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, even when using SATA 2. This was installed in a laptop that is 4 years old. It is the closest thing to being "brand new" that a person can get without buying a new machine.
Cons: Had to RMA the first one after only 2 weeks because it stopped booting the computer. I had thought the laptop may have gave up the ghost but I popped in the old drive and it booted right up.
Other Thoughts: Was not happy with the failure but I was happy with the way Newegg handled the return. They even paid for the return shipping. (I have only ever had to pay for my own return shipping one time and that was because I ordered the wrong thing.) As soon as the failed drive hit the warehouse a replacement was on the way and arrived 2 days later. That is why I have done business with Newegg since 2002.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Replaced a Geforce 7300 that had failed. Drivers installed automatically after installation of new card.
Gaming performance index went up from 4.6 to 5.4
Fan is quiet, not sure what others are hearing unless I just got lucky.
Cons: Aero performance dropped to 4.3 from 4.4, go figure. Only reason I Dropped an egg.
Other Thoughts: Was just what I needed for an older machine that is used for browsing and word processing.READ FULL REVIEW
