Pros: Can dock two SATA disks. USB 3 speeds. Offline disk copy.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: This things seems like it is worth far more than what I payed for it (slightly more than $20). It feels well built, has features that I would expect to pay a lot more for (e.g., offline copy), and it is little more costly than a cheap external hard drive enclosure.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Eagle ET-AR302-BK 6 Watts RMS 2.0 Black Soundstage Speakers
Pros: They look nice. They were cheap. They reproduce sound.
Cons: They distort at anything higher than moderate volumes. Sound quality is just OK.
Other Thoughts: I have owned audio equipment ranging from low-end Technics speakers to a high-end Krell mono amps; thus, I know what a pair of speakers should sound like at a given price point. I currently use a pair of Bose Companion speakers on my computer. I purchased the Eagle speakers for my cousin who built her first PC. The reviews were so strong that I thought I would be getting a bargain. I was wrong. You get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I benchmarked his machine using SiSoftware Sandra bench and the aggregate machine performance was in the top 20% of machines tested. The CPU benchmarks were in the top 3%. Prior to benchmarking, I swapped the HDD for my older ADATA SSD, which is a little tired these days but it is far faster than the HDD. I purchased this computer for some technical computing (e.g., Matlab) and some light gaming (Counter Strike GO). The computer replaced my Dell i7 (920) machine that recently died. The Dell was about 7 years old but it had somewhat modern components (e.g., 1066 RAM, SATA 3, and dedicated ATI 5870 graphics). The cyberpower seems to be about 25% faster. I am able to play games in 1080p. The benchmarks for technical computing were considerably faster. It shows vastly better startup and shutdown times (using a SSD in both machines booting Win 8.1). I should also mention that the CPU runs cool despite all of the horror stories about the 4790k running hot. To me, this is one of cyberpowerPC's biggest successes in this build - kudos to cyberpowerPC.
Cons: I am not going to list the video card or the power supply as a con because I knew that these things were weaker when I bought the machine - I don't need a very powerful video card and a powersupply is very cheap. However, I would suggest a better motherboard. Don't get me wrong, I think that the Gigabyte has some interesting options. But there are only 2 PCI ports and there is no M.2 option for drives, and it only supports 2 memory sticks. Moreover, it is only PCIe v2 (not the most current v3). If Cyberpower is looking for a good way to sink $50 into this system, they should go with a better motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
