Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell Quad-Core 3.3GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54590 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very fast processor, great single core and really good multi-thread performance. Runs surprisingly cool. Was part of a bundle so price was also very good.

Cons: No real cons noted. This is not the "k" variant so is not really targeted for overclocking enthusiasts--so watch your part number if that's what you are wanting.

Other Thoughts: Although install was easy and painless, use caution when installing and read your motherboard's directions before installing.

1 out of 5 eggs Drive Died During Testing 07/26/2015

This review is from: WD Blue WD10J31X 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive

Pros: Small, cleanly designed component, clearly labeled. Attractive design.

Cons: This hard drive died within 36 hours of its initial power-up. I was testing the drive with basic file-copy operations one evening and found the drive dead the next morning . BIOS still sees the drive but it is no longer bootable or readable as a secondary drive.

Other Thoughts: Initial testing showed that this drive compared pretty well in terms of speed to its full-sized desktop counterpart, in spite of its slower spindle speed.

Belkin WeMo F5Z0489 LED Lighting Starter Set, 2 WeMo Smart Light Bulbs & WeMo Link, Control Multiple WeMo Bulbs from Anywhere, Wi-Fi Enabled
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Once this is setup, it's really pretty neat. You can control the bulbs either independently or together--your choice--from your smartphone. The bulbs are bright without being harsh and they make a nice light They can be dimmed and turned on and off from your phone.

The Link unit is small and unobtrusive and you can put it anywhere there is an outlet and a decent signal from your router. You connect to its SSID with your phone after you download the app and it walks you through getting it connected to your wifi network.

Once setup it can be controlled from a remote location using your cell phone.

Cons: Setup should have been a ten-minute affair but was complicated a bit (into a fifteen minute affair) by the app design. You have to go under ". . . " and then "Add WeMo Link Devices" to actually find the bulbs.

When you first open the app, it appears to be searching for devices, but it's searching for devices you have already configured.

This is not a huge problem, but it could be confusing. Seems like adding a bit to the printed instructions in the package to "Touch '...' to add new devices and get additional instructions" might save you a lot of customer service calls.

Other Thoughts: Nice little unit, overall. I do plan on buying more "WeMo" enabled devices.
