Pros: Inexpensive, Small Form Factor, Decent Specs
Cons: Problematic from the start. Hard Drive makes a disturbingly loud rattling sound, the PC froze on installing windows updates and then had multiple boot failures and BSOD's. Finally was able to system restore. 2 months later the RAM failed and needed replacement. Now working but cost my client an additional $60, plus my time in remedying all these issues.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to help a little old lady who lives an hour away from me. This was a mistake. Do not buy a refurb for someone as a favor unless they are computer literate and live nearby. I will say that the Joy Systems tech support was very helpful and friendly, and re-stated the 1 year warranty, however the inconvenience of returning this machine is now not worth the money I paid for it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech MK120 Wired USB Keyboard and Mouse - Black
Pros: Simple, cheap, and works
Cons: Both KB & Mouse are a little on the lightweight side
The KB keys are very low & flat - I wish they were more pronounced with a wider gap between key surfaces - I don't feel confident about which I'm pressing when I look away.
Other Thoughts: Seems like the best budget KB/Mouse comboREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ECS A55F2-M4(1.0) FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Came with 2 SATA cables to accommodate my Optical and HDD. Booted up just fine, recognized RAM.
Cons: Case Speaker port has 3 pins <1X11> and no matter which way i seat the 4-slot case speaker, the BIOS never beeps at me :(
I cannot get the Sleep Mode settings to allow my keyboard/mouse to wake the machine - have researched and toubleshooted to no avail.
Other Thoughts: I submitted a help request on ECS's website over a week ago to help me with these issues... no response.READ FULL REVIEW
