Pros: Makes good coffee and is attractive; hot water system is a plus, but haven't used it much in the summer months since purchase. Previously had a Cuisinart DCC-1200, for nearly a decade, and on lifting the fill door condensed water would run down the door and drip onto the countertop; this has been addressed in the CHW-12 with a curved lower (rear?) fill door contour which redirects the condensate into the reservoir.
Cons: As other reviewers have noted, it can be somewhat tricky to fill the coffee maker reservoir as the opening is on the small side and in the center rear of the unit. Replacement water filters are expensive.
Other Thoughts: I don't see much point to the overpriced water filters, and, as with the DCC-1200, once those included with the unit get too grungie I'll throw them out without replacement. This may make it easier to fill the reservoir as the wand the filter is on fits in the small opening on the left rear; if I throw it out that will increase the effective size of that opening.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: No problems apparent in the few hours the card has been installed.
Cons: Installation of Catalyst Control Center and drivers from included CD would always hang up during install of the C++ redistributable.
Other Thoughts: Downloaded Control Center and drivers from Gigabyte website and had no difficulties installing from downloaded executables. Video card boosted Windows Experience gaming score from 3.3 (onboard video) to 5.7; Aero on in both cases.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 256MB 168-Pin SDRAM PC 100 System Memory Model 990107
Pros: Inexpensive for memory technology this old purchased at this time. Available.
Cons: Ordered two to upgrade an old self-built Duron 1300 system, which had failed a memory stick after 6 years, to 768k. One of the two Mushkin sticks has failed after 10 months.READ FULL REVIEW
