XFX One Radeon HD 5450 ON-XFX1-PLS2 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Great price after rebate! Wow.
Worked great in my Optiplex 380.
Runs my games pretty good!

Cons: Uses 2 slots in low profile and cable isn't really long enough to fit it on the right of the card, only the left. I managed to get it on the right but only by stretching the ribbon cable. Could of used a few more mms on the length.

Other Thoughts: Rebate hoops are pretty steep. So even without the rebate this is a decent card, but it took about 20 minutes to do all of the steps they required.

TCL 50

5 out of 5 eggs Great for the price! 03/29/2014

This review is from: TCL 50" 1080p 120Hz LED TV - LE50FHDE3010M

Pros: at $400 this is a fantastic deal, picture is great, HDMI works great and my PC connects better than my RCA.

Cons: I'm really picky, so these aren't complaints, more like quirks.

1. You cannot got to channel 5.1 by hitting 5.
2. You can store favorite channels but you can't go through them without bringing up a menu that covers half the picture.
3. The input button from the remote is weird, I don't know if mine is broken but it works on first press and then you get stuck on whatever the next input is. The one on the tv works better.
4. Smelled like electric burn in for a few days.

Again, just being really picky.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this TV, the packaging was risky but mine arrived in good order.

Seagate Momentus XT ST500LX003 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This drive worked great initially. I was expecting that it would take some time to learn what to store on the drive, but it really seemed to go quicker than I expected.

Cons: After about a month I had noticed a pattern that made me realize that I couldn't let my computer sleep. If I allowed it to sleep upon return the HDD light would stay on solid for 5 to 10 minutes. (another reviewer points this out)... So I tried leaving it on, as it turns out any activity after periods of inactivity cause these 5 to 10 minute seizures. My 7200 was faster and I'm going back to it.

Other Thoughts: I wish they had a utility that would just allow me to specify which folders to keep on the SSD and bypass whatever flawed algorithm they have. As a developer it seems obvious to me that low level algorithms could not possibly "know" enough to accurately optimize the storage & they only add overhead to processing. The concept is good, but wait for a drive that has a management utility to allow manual allocation of SSD space, or for SSD prices to drop far enough. So far I have to write Hybrid SSD off as hype.
