HP DC7100 Desktop PC Pentium 4 2.8GHz 2GB 40GB HDD Capacity Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Solid construction, price, CLEAN WINDOWS INSTALL! Not a speck of junkware to be found. Bonus 3.5" drive. Lots of USB ports.

Cons: Case is very heavy. Nonstandard 240W power supply. Cramped case.

Other Thoughts: Computer came as advertised, with a copy of Win 7 (for refurbs) on a disk, and a power cord. Packed well. The case is solid, and the top comes off with little trouble. Takes some fitting to get it back, though. DVD drive is IDE. HDD is buried underneath the power supply. Power supply and drives are packed in like sardines on one side. Fan in front right, upright CPU fan and PS fan in the back right make for good airflow. Quiet.

Windows experience numbers: CPU 3.9, mem 4.7, HD 5.1, aero graphics 1.9, gaming graphics 1.0. 24GB free on the HD with Windows installed.

Thermaltake TR2 W0070 430W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply

4 out of 5 eggs Not enough SATA connectors 04/12/2012

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 W0070 430W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply

Pros: Rock solid power supply with good heft. Cables nicely sheathed. I bought one 4 years ago when I needed something with SATA power cables, and it had 2. I bought another one last week, and it still has 2 SATA connectors. Gotta read those details!

Cons: Only 2 SATA power connectors, but 6 old-style Molex 8981's. Which is good if you have a bunch of old PATA drives, I guess. Don't forget to buy some molex-to-SATA adapters.

WD My Passport Elite 500GB USB 2.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very small - much smaller that the WD elements 2.5 drive I own.
Nice brushed aluminum case.
Two cords - one cord, plus a corded dock - for easy movement.

Cons: Does not have the ubiquitous mini-USB port. It has the wide, thin one (as opposed to the narrow, thin one found on some little cameras), and I don't have a hundred of those lying around. So don't misplace the cord that comes with it.
