5 out of 5 eggs Perfect 12/31/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-Bit

Pros: Perfect productivity Operating System. Let's you get the job done in an efficient manor. Everything is just about a click away. Unlike the "modern" OS called 8.1.

Cons: Nothing. It has everything you could want, and looks cool and glassy.

Other Thoughts: I have my reservations about Windows 10. I do not believe they will carry over the visual effects 7 had, namely the Aero Glass. That gave it a modern feel/look. The Windows 8 look is just so retro Windows 95. Square windows and solid colors. It's like a step back in time using Windows 8.

Pros: Good speed, good price.

Cons: I bought 3 sets for 3 exact builds. All MoBos updated to current BIOS. One build failed Memtest v5.01 test #10 in about 4 bits with multiple errors. So I'd say the system was about 99.99% reliable.

I had to either lower the speed to 1400 from 1600, or boost the voltage to 1.35. I chose the latter. Never tried it with 1.30 volts, but at least 1.35 volts passed numerous tests.

Other Thoughts: Luckily I was able to solve this issue by a simple voltage boost. I did not want to deal with an RMA process.

Pros: 15.6" LED-Backlit LCD. 500GB HD. Core i5 4210U up to 2.7GHz Turbo CPU. Windows 7. Real left and right mouse buttons (not just a uni-touchpad/button pad).

Cons: Maybe the HD. It feels like the HD is single processing only. I've used other computers with better/multi processor hard drives that seem to handle multitasks better. Where you can run multiple programs accessing the HD and they all seem to time share okay and there's not really much of a hit on performance.

Other Thoughts: I've helped this computer's performance by changing the power options "processor power management->minimum processor state" from 5% to about 38%. (Use CPU-Z to see your current processor speed.)

This changes the lowest CPU processor speed from 800MHz to a little over 1GHz. When the computer is idle and you're clicking around and mildly using the computer it's actually running at 800MHz instead of 2700MHz.

It seems like the computer is more snappy now that the minimum is 1GHz. After using this computer for a day I've purchased a 2nd one.
