This review is from: MSI H81M-E34 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Cheap. Works fine after a reset.
Cons: BIOS issue, hang on POST until reset.
Other Thoughts: I'm a computer tech by trade. I've purchased this motherboard previously but due to stupidity on my part I purchased it again. I build computers for clients and businesses, I need to be able to get the parts, put them together, have everything work without issue so I can deliver the computer. This motherboard isn't helpful for this process. I have in the past and currently run a high end MSI board in my main computer, so I know they can turn out a very nice product. This is not one of those. Having forgotten the POST issues I had previously (turn on, stuck at BIOS screen, reset and everything works fine) I purchased another of these boards for a budget build. Exact same issue as previous board. MSI forum searching suggest flashing the BIOS *at least* 3 times. I'm now trying to find this information once again, but I still had the BIOS files on my USB stick from before. Unfortunately this trick never worked for me, so I ended up using the board in a business machine that never gets turned off. Hopefully this lesson will stick with me a little longer the next time I want a budget board to match with an i5 processor.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Lenovo Laptop ThinkPad E560 (20EV002JUS) Intel Core i7 6th Gen 6500U (2.5 GHz) 8 GB Memory 500 GB HDD AMD Radeon R7 M370 15.6" Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit (Downgrade from Windows 10 Pro)
Pros: Price, decent performance, feels quality.
Cons: Integrated buttons in the touch pad.
Other Thoughts: I've purchased quite a few ThinkPad's over the years, had been worried the quality would go down after IBM sold the company but so far I've been pleased with the newer TP's I've gotten. Unfortunately this unit has a touch pad with the left and right buttons part of the pad instead of separate as I've had with other models. For people who like to use both hands on the pad this is problematic.
Overall it's a nice laptop, would benefit with a SSD of course.
This review is from: 1Byone Type QS-0059 8.6" Circular Super LED Dome Light
Pros: Bright lights, nice patterns. Kept my daughter happy for 2 days.
Cons: Noisy, noisy, noisy!
Other Thoughts: The unit made huge amounts of noise while running. For some reason it never occurred to me the motor that spins the unit would have to be very strong and the gears would make so much noise. I was expecting something like a reverse disco ball, silent in the background while music was playing. For the amount of noise this unit puts out the music would need to be very loud.
The girls were playing with it in my daughters room, I was told a blanket was thrown on top of it while it was running. The motor burned out, now it just flashes a single red light, no longer spins and stinks from the burned internals. This was obviously not designed to be played with by a couple of 10 year old's. Even so, I can't imagine where this would actually be used with the amount of noise it made, thus I rate it 2 eggs. If the unit was quiet I'd give it 4 eggs, less an egg for the cheap construction.
