This review is from: SAMSUNG 105L (MLT-D105L) High Yield Toner Cartridge Black
Other Thoughts: I always go OEM on toner and ink. Yeah it's more expensive but it's not worth the hassle getting a bad toner or ink refurb.READ FULL REVIEW
Looks every bit as good as my other HP 27xi monitor
Cons: Comes with an aftermarket power brick (not HP)
Logos plastered and glued to an extreme over the original HP logos (probably an HP rule or something)
Other Thoughts: I picked this up because I already have an HP 27xi and they're getting hard to find new. So this one came up refurbished and I jumped on it! So far it's worked great... zero dead pixels and zero issues overall. My only complaint are the aftermarket logos that were glued on the original HP logos - I managed to get them off and used alcohol to scrub off the adhesive, so all is well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: We all knows the pro's
Cons: And the con's
Other Thoughts: What you really want to read is what I use this CPU for. My PC is constantly being used in some form or fashion. I'm usually transcoding 1080p high bit rate bluray rips to DVD, downloading torrents, mining for bitcoins, and using my PC as a real time transcoding server that outputs video via Apple's Air Play to my televisions. Often these tasks all run simultaneously - it's taxing on the CPU and the fan does get a little loud, but it keeps up! So with all that said, if you're a guy like me who's always putting your rig to serious work you'll find this processor an excellent solution AND bargain.
And now to the fellow who claims the "pins melted into his motherboard". That's a ridiculous statement. If true, you'd be the FIRST person EVER to have the gold contact pins melt. 18K plated gold (which is used for the contact pins) has a melting point of 1700 degrees F. Most CPU's overheat and fry around 100C (or ~200F). So do you really expect anyone to believe that your CPU hit a temperature of 1700F? An incredible claim. I'd love to see a photo.
