HP Compaq DC5700 Desktop PC Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz 2GB RAM 80GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Windows 7 home premium license with DVD
-Came with decent mouse and keyboard
-A Core 2 Duo Desktop PC for the this price is impressive
-Plays Minecraft and Flash games well, but is not a gaming PC.
-Internet browsing, and Word processing work very well. Perfect for a kids computer or a student..
-Upgradable with PCI-E slots, mine came with 2 x 1GB sticks of DDR2, possibility to stick another 2 x 1GB sticks (3.5GB usable by 32-bit windows, VGA shares some of that.), Hard drive is pretty quick too.
-DVD/CD-RW drive

Cons: Came with dust in it, fixed with a canned air.

VGA only Intel Media Accelerator - I wish it had DVI or Displayport. It will need a low-profile, low-power GPU card (Geforce GT610, etc) to make it support higher resolutions, play games, and HD video at decent frame rates. For a ~$100 desktop, it's not a big deal.

Came with a floppy disk drive - not really a con but it gave me a good laugh

Other Thoughts: Windows Experience Index; CPU - 4.8, RAM - 5.4, Graphics - 4.0, Gaming graphics - 3.4, HDD - 5.3

I popped in a wifi n pci card to make it wireless, windows detected it right away, easy install with low-profile bracket.

It is a BTX form factor so it won't work for every case if you want to swap. I have not tested the CPU cooler on this PC, but I know these have been business PC's they've been run 24/7, they are pretty solid machines.

Highly recommended considering a OEM copy of Windows 7 is close to the cost of this entire PC.

It's still better than buying a netbook for the same cost. Save your money for 4GB DDR2, and a cheap off-lease monitor, you will have a decent PC for under $200

SYBA USB 3.0 PCI-e x1 2.0 Card with 2 External ports and internal 19 Pin USB 3.0 HeadModel SD-PEX20139
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very easy installation, popped in a PCI-E slot, plugged in Molex power connector and case front USB 3.0 connector. Downloaded the drivers from their website, and plugged in a USB drive to test it and it works. I only have USB 2.0 drives so I can't test the true speed of it but it works for me.

Cons: The mini CD they give you has drivers for all their devices and chipsets so I wasn't too sure which one it was, I just took other reviews advise and downloaded it from the website and it works fine.

Other Thoughts: It's not pretty but gets the job done on older motherboards like mine that don't have usb 3.0 internal headers.

ViewSonic VX2370Smh-LED Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - IPS at this price point, it does look good at extreme angles and the colors really are bright and accurate. I haven't done any photoshop work to test it but I'd believe it is 100% sRGB without any calibration. Coming from a CFL TFT display this is a night and day difference.

-Gaming does pretty well on this monitor; Bioshock infinite, Minecraft, Borderlands 2, the colors pop, no visible ghosting. Although it's not 120hz smooth, it does look good for gaming. My graphics card I limit with v-sync anyway.

-I like the design of the stand, yeah the buttons are awkward but usable. The frameless design looks good and its sleek and thin.

Cons: -the antiglare coating isn't bad compared to other matte screens, but it looks like they put on the anti-glare like a sticker. I can't peel it off. solid colors are noticeably noisy (like scattering light from a anti-glare screen protector) but really any matte screen will have this, the pixel density and LED brightness just make it more noticeable. I guess it's better than a really glossy screen.

-the ports are tucked away in the stand so big bulky connectors are difficult to plug in.

Nothing too bad to loose an egg.

Other Thoughts: There's a comparable Dell IPS monitor with 5 eggs that's more expensive but has a better stand.

1080p, very sharp text and images. I'm very impressed for the sale price. if it was full price I'd probably buy the Dell.

Not sure about the matte anti-glare coating but I can get use to it, the rest of the monitor and images looks amazing.

If you are looking for an entry level IPS this is the monitor to buy.
