This review is from: Acer AG3-605-UR39 Desktop PC Intel Core i7 4770 (3.40GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Windows 8
Pros: CPU and graphics card is what lures you into buying this. It's a strong processor with a high end graphics card. The 1TB is nice and the look of the case is pleasing. Overall I like this PC, it is parted out the way I wanted mine but with a great cost savings.
Cons: #1 and worse of all: POWER SUPPLY! This 500w power supply is just barely enough to power the PC. Not literally, but speaking as someone that has built each PC I have owned before, they went with high end CPU and GPU, but saved money everywhere else.
You pretty much can't upgrade the power supply if you want to. I tried! I bought a 700w PSU to replace the stock one, but that's when I found out the PSU that comes with this build is a 12 PIN connection! This is not common at all and is almost proprietary to this build.
The other downside to this is the RAM. It's also a cost saver for them and is just OK. I also upgraded this when I bought the PC, but had no issues after the upgrade.
Other Thoughts: OVERALL: I like the PC...I'm stuck with the power supply, but I think overall for the price it is still a good deal. I tried to price this out if I built it myself, but found I would have been spending about $300-500 more if I built it with the parts I wanted. My fault for picking a CPU/GPU combo than just doing it myself for the extra cost.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of performance and speed. Great for normal everyday use and even makes for a great gaming laptop.
Cons: bloatware from Lenovo just bogs down the boot up, but can be disabled for quicker boot.
Other Thoughts: bought this for my wife for school work and for my son to play games. Works perfect for both of them!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iRiver P7 4.3" Silver 8GB MP3 / MP4 Player
Pros: 4.3" screen is very nice for portable player. Interface is so easy to use. It's so much easier to manage my media in Windows Media Player and sync. Very affordable! Expansion slot is great! FM Tuner with recording is a nice touch! Small enough to fit in my pocket comfortably (I thought it might be to big or bulky to be carried in a pocket).
Cons: Stylus should have a better place to be stored than hanging off the side. Conversion software is sluggish and needs to be done a couple times on some movies. No easy way to put media on SD card that I've figure out. Needs to be taken out and put stuff on there then put back in. Syncing music can sometimes take to long. Once pic showed some kind of dock with the player which is not included.
Other Thoughts: The converting software sometimes does not get it done right the first time. I've uploaded 10 movies on it so far and 2 have needed a second conversion to get it on, but it has worked the second time around. Heard the expansion is only compatible to 8GB so I bought that to be safe.
OVERALL: It's a very affordable player versus others in the same screen size, flash memory and style. If you want to save money and get something good, here it is!
