Microsoft Windows 10 Home - 64-bit

1 out of 5 eggs Expensive spyware 08/28/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Home - 64-bit

Pros: It looks good

Cons: I don't even know where to begin...forced updates, Cortana, spyware in a nutshell. Never do express settings or an online account. Do local accounts. There's a Windows 10 tool called DisableWinTracking by 10se1ucgo on GitHub that I used to defang the OS of some of its tracking. The telemetry is nasty too and they backported some of it to Windows 7 and 8/8.1 so I deleted those operating systems off my computers. Do yourself a favor and go back to Windows 8 or 7. The forced updates, spyware and breaking updates that comes up in the news is enough to let you know to not waste your money on this.

Other Thoughts: After this, I'm using GNU/Linux and Mac OS only.

ASUS VX238H Black 23

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I love Asus monitors. I have used other brands and this one is personally my favorite. I like the 1ms response time. I hear that Asus is less likely to lie about these numbers

Cons: The cables they included sucked. VGA and one cable that was 1/2 DVI and the other half HDMI. They could have AT LEAST done full HDMI. That's the reason I knocked an egg

Other Thoughts: Besides the cables, it's a good monitor

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv iTX Black Steel / Plastic  Window Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case  PH-ES215P_BK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I really enjoyed building in this case. It looks fantastic in the end and the layout is great. I was worried about how air would be moved with the seemingly restrictive front panel, but the components on the inside stayed cool, even with just having the 200mm intake and a 140mm exhaust at the back, no top fans. I have another build coming up and I think I'm going to use this same case but without the window for different preferences from the other person wanting the build. I bought it because of the good reviews and how happy I am with my Enthoo Pro

Cons: I'm really sad they left out a fan hub on this case. Of all the cases they have, this is the one Phanteks should have put a fan hub in. Most ITX boards I see only have 1 or 2 fan headers, where the mATX and ATX boards have much more. I think they should really consider adding one in future releases. Please!!
The last thing is based on my stupidity, but also just a minor annoyance. If you have to add extra cables to the psu, you have to unscrew the psu from the case to put them on. So be sure you put in the cables you need before you mount it to the case!

Other Thoughts: All in all, I love this case. For the future though I'm going to have to buy a Y splitter for the fans, or get some other fan hub going on. Phanteks, PLEASE ADD A FAN HUB TO THIS CASE! Even if it costs more, I think it's necessary.
