Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Just...sad...Download CLASSIC SHELL after installation. 11/29/2012

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)

Pros: It is windows 7 with a few extra "features and changes"

Download Classic Shell after installation to revert back to traditional windows.

Cons: Those "features and changes" were inspired by Lucifer himself...

Download Classic Shell after installation to revert back to traditional windows.

Other Thoughts: The only "pro" to Windows 8 when using it on a desktop is the ability to DOWNLOAD a "program" called Classic Shell online which enables you to turn Windows 8 back to Windows 7 while keeping the faster boot times and disabling that HORRIBLE app tile interface CWRAP!!!

I hate Windows 8 design and all. It has gone way off track the tradition of Windows.

TO USE WINDOWS 8 traditionally, I recommend downloading a program called CLASSIC SHELL (which is free). It will put a smile on your face...the same one you WERE expectiing when you bought this trash software.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Upgraded from a great working Phenom II x4 965 that did its job well. This upgrade was excellent! Only took 10 minutes from powerdown to startup. WEI boosted up from 7.4 7.5 7.9 7.9 7.3 to 7.8 7.8 7.9 7.9 7.3. Also enabled memory to run at 1866 from 1600 which the Phenom would only support. This thing is FAST. Worth every penny.

Cons: Bought it in a bundle to get a discount of 20 bucks off. Wish this was sold at a base price of 199 instead of the 219. So not really much of a savings...

Other Thoughts: The fan is smaller than what the phenom stock fan was. I don't use them anyways but just wanted to point that out.

Also the "spam can" it comes in is still neato!

Buy this if you don't want to wait for 3rd Gen FX core. I really think this IS what the original 8150 should have been.

AOC E2243FWK Black 21.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Didn't buy from Newegg, first of all. I purchase a display model from a local store needing something that would replace my wonder Viewsonic that I had sold a while back. This AOC is great. Not as good as the Viewsonic, but this one has some great features. EXTREMELY THIN screne and incredibly light-weight. the base is small and sits back behind the scene, giving you enough deskspace for everything else. Bottons are all touch technology located on the base as well. It supports both VGA and DVI.

Cons: The screne sits forward from the base causing you to lose about a inch or so of deskspace from the wall, if your up against a wall. The screen also cannot be mounted. Its so thin they didn't provide screw holes in the back. Overall design prevents mounting altogether (power and video cables are located in the base).

Other Thoughts: I'm giving it a 4 because the picture is wonderful. I only regret choosing this monitor because I just need ANY monitor. It's no piece of cwrap so don't think its absolute trash. It gets the job done.
