This review is from: MSI 6681-001BUS Intel Core2 Quad and Core2 Duo processors (TDP: Max. 65W) Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel G41 Intel GMA X4500 1 x HDMI 4.7-liter Desktop Barebone with SuperMulti DVDRW Drive included
Pros: I took a real chance on this. All the reviews said this barebone just doesn't work but the specs were exactly what I was looking for. So I took a chance and guess what...so far so good. I've installed Windows 7 32bit and Office 2010 with no issies
Cons: Reason for only four eggs was the difficulty taking this barebone apart. I just about destroyed the optical drive cover just to get the front cover off. Shockingly I didn't break anything else. And it's not a huge deal but for the price a built in wifi card would have been nice too. Since it has antennas and all.
Other Thoughts: System thus far:
e5300 Pentium Dual Core
2x 1GB Hynx DDR3
Cons: never received memory. purchased on cyber monday. was forced to wait the supersaver time frame before filing a claim. claim finally went through. hopefully getting a refund soon. only took about a month for newegg to see their mistake. contacted my cc company to help speed things up. also contacted bbb since the people on newegg's chat are robots. i recommend shopping elseware. i'm officially done with newegg for good.READ FULL REVIEW
