Original OEM Samsung ETA-U90JWE High Power 2 A Amp USB Sync Data Cable + Home Wall Travel Charger For Samsung Galaxy Note II / 2 T889 I605 N7100, Galaxy Note I /1 T879 I717, Galaxy S4 Active, Stellar
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Mine is a 6900 mAh battery. This charger filled 52% after 1 hour 22 minutes.
Although no actual figure but i believe this is as good as my original Samsung charger.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: There are many fake Samsung chargers in the market. This charger came with no original packing but chargers and cable were in 2 separate plastic bags.
Printing in the charge with Samsung logo and looks OK to me.
I cannot tell if it's OEM, but the charging time is pretty close to my original Samsung charger.
BTW this item became out of stock after i placed the order so made me feel I was lucky. :-)

Symantec Norton Ghost 15.0 - 1 PC
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs As a long time Ghost user I'm disappointed 06/07/2010

This review is from: Symantec Norton Ghost 15.0 - 1 PC

Pros: None so far because Win 7 Back up and restore can do the exact same thing without extra bucks.
I got this as a NIS 2010 bundle so my loss is miminal (only paid CA sales tax about $7 after rebate).
Maybe a little bit faster than Win7 Backup, but I didn't really count the time.

Cons: My system is using RAID 1 so both Ghost and Win 7 (64bit) Backup need me to load additional RAID drivers by create a recovery disc.
Ghost accept only 32 bit RAID driver, Win 7 take 64-bit RAID driver.
The "Help" is ot so helpful. I'm a long time Ghost user but still can't get it work at the first few times. Previous version (12 and 14) work under WinXP without this problem.

Other Thoughts: Good if you still using XP or Vista. Don't bother if you are using Win 7 (mine is Professional 64-bit and actually bought 3 copies in very sweet $30 price) coz Backup & Restore can do the exact same thing without much trouble.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ955FBGMBOX Processor

5 out of 5 eggs Look around to get the best deal 05/05/2010

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ955FBGMBOX Processor

Pros: Price - I bought this CPU as a combo (w/ MSI 890GXM-G65 MB) in local store for total cost $186.56. These days you really need to shop around so to get the best deal.

Performance - It's fast even in stock speed. Sorry no fully tested yet but data already available for long time out there. Will OC of course otherwise why spent such money?

Temperature - idle at 32 C, ran Prime95 for several hours jump to 52 C (immediately but stable afterward) with stock heat sink.

Cons: Speed - Win 7 show CPU score as 7.5 (stock speed), my Athlon II x 4 620 score 7.2. Not a huge immprovement so for budget users an Athlon II may be good enough for daily use...

Stock fan - First time to use AMD stock heat sink (CM Hyper 212+ not arrived yet). It's very loud at first night (idle) that I must turned off the PC before sleep. It's acceptable during second night and afterward (even running Prime95). Maybe the fan need break in too? LOL

Other Thoughts: All my PCs built with AMD CPU for the past 15+ years. None DOA yet, only fired one up by myself and blamed the retailer for exchange (first built, ha ha)
Nothing against Intel but it's the price prevent me to adopt them.
Raw speed or spec is not "very" important, it's better look for real life applications performance to see if a PC is suit your need or not.
Stock heat sink is OK to use if no OC (idle at 32 C). (OCZ OCZTVEND Vendetta use in Athlon II x 4 620 is 26 C). However, I still prefer to use 3rd party cooloer to achieve lowest possible temp.
I don't even have enough time to play my PS3, XBox 360 & WiII games. why I wanna spent $300+ for a six core CPU (BE) plus other $$$ expensive hardware so can play games in my PC? IMO America need faster Internet and (much) better software to utilize the hardware we already had.
