Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: works as intended at a great price

Cons: the con turned out to be Gigabytes fault and all manufacturers drives are suseptable to it

Other Thoughts: Watch out for Gigabyte motherboard BIOS settings. Enabled by default, it places a backup of the BIOS on your a drive (this is not my system drive). So my 1TB drive showed up as 32-33MB! Googled: this happens with all manufacturer's larger drives. Turns out the common denominator was GB MB's
Had to use 'ultimate bood cd' to fix it on a 64bit system.

I wonder how many of these supposed DOA's were a result of this? I think I will be looking to pick up some refurbs on the cheap!

Dell ST2220L Glossy Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: great picture, great viewing angles for this price point, great value.

Cons: None really at this price - can't expect it to be an IPS panel.
When you attach via HDMI you have to go into your video driver console/controls to remove the 1" border around the picture. I can't remember the setting now - it took a bit of searching to find the answer. I think I found it on Dells website reviews for the monitor.

Other Thoughts: Need a good monitor on a budget then this is the one you want.

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs should have listened to the reviews here 01/02/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade

Pros: Installed fast on an older spinner. Apparently works as manufacturer intended it. The install twice trick worked.

Cons: Works as manufacturer intended it. Might be great if you have never used a computer before or felt like relearning how to use a PC. Otherwise its total chaos trying to find your way around.
Re-installed Vista. Should have just spent the $100 on Win7 (which is a great OS)

Other Thoughts: I like PC. If I wanted to learn something else I would have gone with Linux - IT'S FREE. If I wanted a touch screen tablet that is what I would have bought.
Thought I might salvage it as parity server but I have read the write speeds are so slow as to be unusable.
Maybe I can put it on my HTPC since I only run XBMC center on it anyway. IDK
