This review is from: Frigidaire FRA106BU1 10,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner
Pros: Good Unit, Cools well once I got it working.
Cons: Build quality was very poor, inner blower wheel was cracked on 3 of the 4 arms, however nothing else in the unit was damaged, which to me seems that someone put it together broken. The following is the part number for the wheel if anyone else experiences the same issue 5304476058. I did take away 3 eggs, because I feel that this was something that should not have gotten out of the factory, it is obvious carelessness on Frigidaire's part. I understand a faulty compressor, but not a fan that is very obvious.
Other Thoughts: Newegg, you saved an egg on here, I did not complete an RMA, however, with this being my first experience in thousands of dollars spent with a faulty product I was curious to see how well Newegg performed with the RMA process. I have to say that I am VERY impressed. They were willing to pay for the shipping on a 60+ pound item, and had swift correspondence with me. Thank you for wanting to treat your customers right the first time around. I will spend a little extra to know that I am getting the customer service that you offer. The funny thing is that 99% of the time you guys are the cheapest to be found. I wish more people operated like you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Scythe SCSK-1100 100mm Shuriken Rev. B 3 Heat Pipes CPU Cooler
Pros: Worked great for 11 months
Cons: Fan DIED last night, waiting to see what scythe will do to make it right. My only hope is that the motherboard and CPU are going to survive this ordeal
Other Thoughts: Fan really should have lasted more than 1 year. I know that I am not the only one that feels this way on here. Two fans in 10 days, seems better quality control may be needed. Like I said tho, I'm still waiting to hear back from Scythe, I'm hoping that they will make things right, but it sucks because my system is down for the time being while I waitREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a good little PC, I am currently using it as a secondary Media PC in a bedroom, streams HD from primary PC just fine with built in wifi. I'm running a airport extreme for a router. Initial load timed in wmc are a little slower than my quad amd, but I'm not going to count that as a bad thing because it's like comparing a geo to BMW. This thing does everything that I want it to do. I may be pushing it close to it's limit but upgrading to more than 1gb of ram and a ssd should fix load speeds, I just dont feel the need.
Cons: Fan can be a little noisy at times, but that is expected in a small package like this.
Other Thoughts: 1gb ram
80gb 5400 junk drive from old laptop
and it does what I want, works for me
