Microsoft Windows 8.1 - 32-bit - OEM
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Huge improvement over 8.0, learning curve 09/09/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - 32-bit - OEM

Pros: Loads OS fast w most drivers built in. Looks pretty, for web browsing can't be beat.

Cons: someone said, "Pros: easy to recover your OS if your hard drive gets messed up, it looks like win 7 desktop + tiles, but with some simple adjustments, it starts to look and act like win 7, runs quick and is responsive to the UI.". I REALLY have to disagree w the system restore thing, it does not crash much but if you have hardware issues you won't get it back.

Other Thoughts: Eight is a severe learning curve, if your not computer savvy avoid it. USE Start8 or Startisback and it act's like Windows 7 but added features.

Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Super fast, boots W8 in 5-6 seconds from off.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: This is my 1st experience w SSD technology. I'm kinda concerned about the technology, not sure how long it will hold up. It's working well in my 3 yr old Lenovo laptap. I'm impressed so far.

COUGAR Orange Challenger Black Steel ATX Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and 20cm LED Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Tool less bays, lot's of room. Would be a very good server if you had lots of drives. Top sata connector for easy HD swapping.

Cons: Much bigger than what I expected but I should have read dimensions. The front panel will pop off VERY easy and so do the bottom legs.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have LONG cables on your power supply. The 1st PS I tried, the 24 pin connection was stretched too tight for my liking so I had to use another.
