Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Still the standard 06/14/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: It has more of a familiar feeling than Windows 8.

Cons: It's unnecessarily bloated, closed source, and likes to update at the most inconvenient times.

Other Thoughts: I don't like the direction that Microsoft, Apple, and Ubuntu are going... I prefer the look, feel, and efficiency of Debian, but half of what I need it for doesn't work right out of the box like it does in bloated Windows. Because I don't have time to troubleshoot, I have to stick with Windows :(

GIGABYTE GA-Z77N-WIFI LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I put an i5 processor, 8GB memory, an SSD, and a sub $150 NVidia card on this board, and it rocks. Windows 7's built in performance benchmark ranks it over 7 for all components with my configuration. I built this PC for around $1,000 but that includes the monitor. Not bad.

Cons: One of the WiFi antenna connectors is stripped out... I'm not sure why. I wasn't planning on using wi-fi anyway.

Other Thoughts: I really have to wonder how much better a $2000 PC would run compared to my $1000 PC... I have a feeling that the difference would not justify the high end price.

Hanns-G HE225DPB Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I bought two for dual monitors at work. I'm pretty impressed with these monitors. They definitely beat the old LCD monitors that I had. In my honest opinion they don't look cheap either even though the price was low. I can comfortably open two documents per screen!

Cons: I wish they wouldn't put stickers on monitors. The monitor is a nice black shiney piece of plastic, but the stickers sorta ruin it. Why would someone running Linux want to see a "Compatible with Windows 7" sticker? Or, maybe I'm running Windows 8... again, no need for the sticker.

Other Thoughts: I'll definitely be keeping my eye on Hanns-G for future purchases.. I'm impressed with these monitors.
