This review is from: Seiki SE39HE02 39" 720p LED HDTV
Pros: Seiki is the European brand name from what I've read. I have two Seiki's, 1-40", 120hz & 1-46", 60hz.
Both have great pictures & haven't had any issues since I purchased them over 3 years ago.
I can't remember what brand is made for North America but I only paid $350 w/free shipping for the two TV's.
Cons: Nothing other than the sound but most flat screens seem to sound a lot better with sound bars.
Other Thoughts: I didn't get the 3-D but this brand is dependable. It's been like 4 years or so since we started getting a lot of the brands that were only sold in Europe. It's just their way of picking up a greater market share here in the states.
If I didn't already have 5 flat screens, I would have purchased this one for my computer room. At any rate, I just wanted to review this brand since it only had 1 written so far.
This review is from: Rosewill Xtreme Series RX950-S-B 950W Continuous @40°C ,80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91, SLI Ready CrossFire Ready, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7, i5" Power Supply
Pros: Price was good at the time of purchase
Stated 80 Plus Certified power supply.
I believe I spent about $100.
Cons: I'm not a big fan of 4-12volt rails but it seemed to do the job.
Other Thoughts: When you are buying PSU's, once you get your item, go to underwriters lab's website & type the UL# in the search field. If it doesn't show up, the UL# on the sticker is a fake number, or it's not a UL tested or certified item. This one didn't show up on the UL site. Other than that, I never ran into problems with it & even though I bought high priced MB & CPU, it seemed to always work just fine.
About the 4- 12volt rails, I never opened it up to see if they were 4 rails but since this purchase I went to another brand because I wanted to make sure that the heart of the build was top notch & a trusted brand.
I also started to change by desktop builds. Now I either use SSD's, or notebook HDD's. Regular notebook HDD's use 50% less power than the same size, RPM in a regular 3.5" HDD. So going with the 2.5" HDD's, It helps when running more than 1 drive. Good to know right???. SSD's are even a better plus when you're building a tower...... Remember the rule of thumb, your system is only as fast as the slowest piece of hardware... Cheers....
This review is from: ESET Smart Security 2014 - 3 PCs
Pros: Price is right. Eset has more than one type of security product's. Even though they're both good, this one has more features.
Not a memory hog. You don't even know it's running in the background.
Other Thoughts: I have purchased around 40 or 50 of the 3-installs. I give ESET away free to customers when I work on their systems. When I get a computer in with virus's & I see that they're using some free program they got on the web, the first thing I do is take their free security off, install ESET, scan their computer & after it removes all the viruses, I explain to them that if they call me every 11 months, I'll set them up with another years worth the security.
I had a guy sit here with me while I played with his desktop that was running a free antivirus program from the web. He complained to me that it wouldn't work right. I removed his protection, installed ESET, scanned it, removed all the viruses & sent him on his way. Now I do make money getting their computers right but since ESET when it's on sale is so cheap, I just give it to them. All I tell them is would you want to spend 12 hours trying to get your system running right, or do you want to spend about 1/2 scanning your hard drive & actually cleaning up all the viruses that your free stuff couldn't find or get rid of. It's a real easy call.
I use to buy another antivirus product that starts with a "K" which I thought was the best. I tried ESET one time. After that I automatically watch for sales & buy ESET. Trust me, it works very well....
