LG PA75U WXGA 1280x800 Built-In WiFi & TV Tuner 700 ANSI Lumens (100
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Bright vivid picture

tri pod mountable

Very versatile with easy setup

WI Fi connected

Smart Apps - able to access web content without computer attached

30,000 hour LED lifespan

Built in TV tuner. I live a bit too far from the local TV transmitter towers to get much reception using the included TV antenna, but when I hook up my rooftop one to it, all my digital broadcast channels come in crystal clear.

"magic" remote that allows you to control the projector with a "mouse" pointer on the projected image - a way better interface method than previous models I've owned

Decent sound from the twin internal speakers. You're not going to fill an auditorium with them, but they are far better both in volume and sound quality, than the internal speaker in my prior LED projector. And there are two of them, on opposite sides of the projector, and they do offer stereo sound from stereo sources.

Cons: I'll be darned if I can come up with any cons at the moment.

Other Thoughts: I just received this LG PA75U today, and have spent about 5 hours getting familiarized with all of it's capabilities and features. This thing is loaded with features.

I've owned one of the "clone" LED 500 lumen projectors for a year and a half, and it's done a good job for me, but technology marches on and this brand spanking new model from LG has many more features, more lumens, higher contrast, and an all around superior picture quality.

I've tested it with Blu Ray movies connected thru HDMI, with a text and image based Power Point presentation again thru an HDMI connection, with the 75U's internal TV tuner, and with web content..You Tube, facebook, etc, directly through the projectors internal smart apps and web browsing ability all on it's own. Blu Rays are impressive , of course, but so are you tube videos.

I've not noticed any focus issues at all. The whole screen is crisp and clear, for both movies as well as text.

The setup is intuitive and gives you more options than you'll probably need, but they're there if you want to use them. There are pre sets for picture adjustments....vivid, cinema, etc, but you are also given the ability to set your own custom picture. I haven't tried that yet, the pre set ones look pretty darn good to me.

Some people are sensitive to fan noise. Those who are will be pleased by this LG, it's quiet. I'm sitting three feet from it right now, with no other sound in the room, and I can't hear any fan noise at all. It's definitely more quiet than my prior projector.

SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model SH-S203B
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good quality dvd/cd writer. It works with just about all blank media and has a quality feel to it. It doesn't make a racket when spinning up and it does what an optical drive is supposed to do and it is an SATA drive so avoids the ribbon cable and jumper nonsense, And...the price is right. It's built by Samsung in conjunction with Toshiba so it has the know how of two of the industry heavyweights behind it.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've purchased 4 of these in the last few months and installed a pair in each of two new builds. They are oem, so don't expect any cables or software, but they were properly bubble wrapped and arrived in perfect shape. They each did come with an instruction booklet, but they are so simple to install that I never even looked at it. I plugged in the sata and power cables, my bios recognized them and Vista saw them. Couldn't be any easier.

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This was my third build with an arctic cooling freezer pro 7 and it just plain works extremely well for not a ton of money. In my first two builds I put the cooler on the cpu after the motherboard was already mounted in the case. That is possible, but a bit difficult. I did this one with it outside the case and I couldn't believe how much easier it was. The push pins were simple as can be to match up to the holes, and they just snapped right in on the first attempt. Total install time, 30 seconds.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It does a much better job than the OEM INTEL cooler that comes with the CPU. The fan is barely audible at full 2700 rpm, but it very seldom ever needs to spin that fast. With my asus motherboard qfan set with the CPU fan on optimal, it spins at about 2000 rpm keepng the temps below 40C at all times..and is inaudible outside the case.

This was used on a Q6600 cpu on an ASUS P5e Lga775 X38 board. No problems at all with the fit and clearing the ram slots. I have previously used it on Asus P5e3 Premuim boards and Xeon X3350 CPU's. Same very satisfying results

Hint....TAKE OFF THE FAN AND SHROUD before you attempt to install it. It snaps off and on easily and it is so very much easier to get at the tops of the push pins with it off.
