This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Keeps my CPU cool
Cons: Minimal installation instructions
Other Thoughts: I bought this last December but never got around to installing in until yesterday, and I see now that I should have done it the day I got it. My system is running an Intel i7-4770K and even though I'm not overclocking I've often seen temperatures of 70C and higher. After a series of unfortunate events I finally installed the water cooler and after 18 hours of running MemTest86 I'm only seeing temps of between 38C and 40C maximum. When I ran MemTest86 before installing this CPU cooler I was seeing 70C and above. I understand that i7-4770K tends to run hot, but I didn't imagine a water cooler could make that much difference. I'm a believer.
I considered knocking an egg off because the installation instructions that came in the box are totally inadequate. At every step I found my self with a question that was not addressed by the included instructions. With assistance from DH who does electronics (though not PCs) for a living and Google searches, I got the thing installed. It worked the first time, so I left my rating at 5 eggs.
This review is from: Original OEM Samsung Galaxy mega 5.8, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S 4 zoom, ATIV S Neo, Galaxy Legend ETA-U90JWE High Power 2 Amp USB Cable + Home Wall Travel Charger
Pros: Factor charger for Samsung Galaxy S 8.4" tablet; fast charging; cable fits well
Other Thoughts: I wanted an extra charger for my Samsung Galaxy S 8.4" tablet so I wouldn't have to move the one that came with it from room to room and so I had an extra one to travel with. This works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 2015 - 3 PCs
Pros: Finds malware and questionable programs; best antivirus program I've ever used
Other Thoughts: I'm not sure where I stumbled on to Eset - maybe at another computer store a couple of years ago. I bought it for a machine I was building and I was so impressed that I've bought copies for all the machines we use on a daily basis. It finds malware and has kept me off risky websites, but it stays out of the way during normal operation, and doesn't print anything on the bottom of every email I send out. I've used AVG, Avast, McAfee and probably others I don't remember anymore but Eset is now my go-to antivirus program. I try to stock up on the 3 pc package when they're on sale with a rebate. Keeps the cost down to something that's not significantly more than free. Even at full price I'll still use it if the sales prices disappear someday.READ FULL REVIEW
