This review is from: Honeywell RTH6580WF1001/W White 7 Day Programmable Wi-Fi Thermostat
Pros: Great iOS app, zero connectivity issues, just plain works.
Cons: None to note.
Other Thoughts: I have two zones in my home so I use two of these, and they have always worked flawlessly since I installed them. Installation took a couple hours for both because you have to figure out how to power the C wire (as with any wifi thermostat), but since most thermostat wires have extra unused wires, it was really easy. I just found an unused wire behind the thermostat and found that same color down in the air handler and hooked it to one of the constant 24vac power sources. Very easy.
The iOS app is perfect- it shows what temperature the thermostat is reading and gives full control over the thermostat. No bells and whistles like knowing when you're in the house, but as I'm a creature of habit (like most humans), a programmable schedule is fine.
Pros: Great layout, love the 4 ram slots and two PCIe x16 slots.
Cons: Second PCIe x16 slot runs at x4 (not really a drawback, just is what it is)
Other Thoughts: I swapped a 960GM board for this 970M and experienced a noticeable increase in FPS in BF4. The video card is even running at higher quality settings now (the game adjusts quality automatically to achieve FPS- on the 960GM is was downrating the quality).
The overlocking tool is also SUPER easy to use- I was able to go from 3.1ghz to 3.8ghz on my 8 core FX-8120 with literally three mouse clicks. The result is a marked increase in my 3dMark scores, not to mention the other benefits that come with overclocking. Couldn't be easier!
I couldn't even get to 3.4ghz on the 960gm board that this one replaced.
This review is from: Bulova 98B160 Strap Men's Quartz Watch
Pros: Looks great. Strap is very high quality.
Cons: Poor precision, internal parts look plastic. When you adjust the time, all three hands move a little, kind of like a cheap wall clock. The second hand never aligns with any of the tick marks.
Other Thoughts: I was expecting this to be better than my Citizen Eco-Drive Perpetual watch, but it falls far flat (and the Citizen was the same price as this lists for). I was disappointed in the quality but I got it for a really low price on black friday so I can't complain. Won't be buying another Bulova though- the quality doesn't seem to match the price.READ FULL REVIEW
