Microsoft Windows 10 Home - 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs 12/28/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Home - 64-bit

Pros: -Easy to install, found many drivers right off the bat for a simple office system
-Start button and menu returns
-Interface is much closer to Windows 7 than Windows 8/8.1
-Relatively fast and I've got it working with both older and newer hardware (Sandy Bridge mobile platform and desktop platforms, Haswell, and Skylake builds)

Cons: -Shortly after installing, it had to update to the latest build. Kind of annoying that it can't be built-in to the installer like some Linux OS installers (where they just download the latest packages)
-Privacy options - you need to just watch out for these during installation.
-Some built in programs keep reappearing, like Sports, News, "Get Skype", "Get Office" - if I uninstall something, stop putting an icon back a few days later.

ARCTIC F8 PWM Fluid Dynamic Bearing Case Fan, 80mm PWM Speed Control, 31CFM at 22dBA

Pros: PWM sharing works well - powering 2 of these off 1 motherboard PWM header. Came with installation screws.

Cons: You can start to hear them when they start going above 60%. Cables aren't sleeved (but you know that before buying) and the PWM sharing can sort of get in the way if you aren't using that part.

Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Desktop Memory Model CT2K4G4DFS8213

Pros: Works perfectly in an Asrock H110M-HDV board with a G4400.

Cons: No fancy heatsinks I guess, but that doesn't really matter. I guess the package was also weird to open - it seemed to be sealed on two perpendicular sides instead of simply popping open like a folder.
