AVG Internet Security 2014 1 PC (2-Year) - Download
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs very poor security 11/28/2013

This review is from: AVG Internet Security 2014 1 PC (2-Year) - Download

Pros: they can give you a 30 day free usage

Cons: well!! I've never seen a security firewall that a outside source could put something on your computer to shut off the firewall. yes that's right not once not twice but several times without any detection from the AVG security fire wall. no warning at all.

Other Thoughts: If I would have purchased this AVG internet security I would be up in arms over the fact that it is way, way, way under par for calling it 2014 tech. I have no idea what got on my computer to cause the program it to shut off. But you'd think that it would detect something but never did.

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional 70SB088600002 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: sounded great when working, 5.1 worked well with creative software

Cons: not sure whats going on now. after two or three start ups the driver is not seen anymore and have to reload drivers. The program countrol console launcher is not seen and also the control panel is not seen. It says no hardware to connect too. So I'm not real happy. darn warranty is only a year for the price it should be at least a couple spending 149 bucks and it goes out in a year and a half is kind of a insult. considering most electronics last a couple anyway.

Other Thoughts: It's really a bummer that creative only does e-mail tech support I'm sure that they waste more time with e-mails then would be actually talking in person being 2 days behind lol
I'm waiting for creative tech suppot to tell me something other then reinstll drivers. blah blah blah

Plextor PX-M2 Series PX-128M2S 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs SSD is the wave of the future 08/19/2011

This review is from: Plextor PX-M2 Series PX-128M2S 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: ASUS 980a mobo runs great easy to install. did a clone HD worked very well made the SSd drive letter C automatically. Went in Bios made it the start up HD with out taking out old hd in comp. My Win7 score went from a 5.9 to a 6.9. not one single problem installing I was very amazed as to how well it all went.

Cons: Was very worried about doing the SSD acronis but have worked with the program before in my laptop but that was just making a backup to DVD. the cloning process worked very well for this motherboard.

Other Thoughts: This SSD smooths out the games i play, comp starts a bit faster and shuts down a bit faster. Opens programs a bit faster the my WD rapture 10,000 rpm. Me being new to the SSD world it is a bit nerve racking, because of all the other bad reviews from other SSD drives out there.
I'm running,
ASUS 980a mobo
corsair 850 PSU
win7 64bit.
xfi creative sound blaster
2 250 video cards in SLI
6gig 1600 ram
SSD plextor 128gig 128meg /cache really nice improvement
WD 10,000rpm VelociRaptureHD 150gig
WD 500 gig HD so that's where my score only went up to 6.9 instead of 7 something
I'm knocking on wood it doesn't fail shortly, but all the reviews on this Plextor SSD have been amazingly positive and for a good reason it is a good product.

going to be upgrading to a sata 6 mobo soon should increase the speed of the system and get a higher score in win7 being this mobo is only sata 3
