Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 Yorkfield Quad-Core 3.0GHz LGA 775 95W Desktop Processor BX80569Q9650
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Purchased 2/27/2009; Still My Powerhouse 12/21/13 12/22/2013

This review is from: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 Yorkfield Quad-Core 3.0GHz LGA 775 95W Desktop Processor BX80569Q9650

Pros: Cache, speed, longevity, pure power.

Cons: How can you have a con for a CPU you have been using hard for coming up on 5 years?

Other Thoughts: O/C'd to 3.33 since it was new. Has run 24/7/365 for nearly 5 years, except for maintenance and new motherboards.

It is still a high-end CPU.

I am now almost totally laptop/desktop replacement: Samsung i5; SONY VAIO i5; HP Elite Haswell i7-Quad; MacbookPro 13" Retina i5. STILL, when I am home, I do what I need with my Q9650. I don't game, but I do a lot of transcoding and BOINC. It isn't bleeding edge, but it is still a serious monster CPU.

Canon Vixia HF R300 Full HD Flash Memory Camcorder with 51x Advanced Zoom
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Pro/Semi-Pro Backup Camcorder 05/26/2013

This review is from: Canon Vixia HF R300 Full HD Flash Memory Camcorder with 51x Advanced Zoom

Pros: Fantastic in every way. External microphone and headphone jack on a camera currently sellig at 139? Even at list price, this camera is a a Refurb, it is somply the only choice for serious videographers and casual users alike

Cons: Non-threaded lens barrel. Battery life, but, get a Wasabi battery set (2 per package + charger) for a third the price of a Canon extra capacity batteryand away you go...happy. For this camcorder, for this price, there aren't any other cons.

Other Thoughts: This camcorder gets stellar reviews from Professionals and Semi-Professionals alike, especially as a backup camcorder. BH reviews have it at 4.4-stars, with the majority of lower ratings usually given by casual users or by people who complain about battery life. The same is true of other review sites.

I use mine for storm chasing and for other stuff that places my camera at risk for breakage. I don't want to risk my professional camcorder during these sorts of adventures. Hard to believe, but, at this price, they are disposable camcorder. If it gets too beat up, you toss it.

Again, for this refurbished price, you can't beat it.

HGST Touro Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: HUGE...fairly quick for an external. Can't beat the price. Ryns cool and quiet. So far, I have transferred 700Gb to the drive.

Cons: None...but then, I can read specifications and know what I am buying for my needs. I also know what I am doing, unlike most of the folks who rate HDDs at 1 or 2 eggs.

Other Thoughts: There are always a few DOAs...usually due to rough handling by the shipper...but, honestly, if you paid attention to the average 1/2 egg raters, you would swear that HDDs have a 50% failure rate. Get real, eh?

These are big drives for storage of huge files.

As for those who say they lost data during a crash...uh, you mean you didn't keep a copy of your original data? LOL Commercial aircraft usually have 4 back-up systems. Learning from that, I always have my data stored on at least two different drives...sometimes three. I have never lost a single byte of data. No, it isn't is planning to store stuff that is really important to you. If you copy your old files to a new drive, why wouldn't you still have the data on your original HDD?

Look, these are great drives. ither buy one...or just move on. HDD makers are not responsible for acts of stupidity on the part of the end user.
