Lenovo Thinkpad T410 14” Notebook with Intel Core i5-520M 2.40Ghz (2.933Ghz Turbo), 4GB DDR3 RAM, 160GB HDD, DVDRW, Webcam, Windows 7 Home 64 Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap, fast. Everything works.

Cons: AC adapter plug.

Other Thoughts: First, as a refurb, I wipe the drive securely and install a fresh copy of windoze---no worse or easier than any refurb.
Second, what utter idiot designs a round power adapter that doesn't insert universally (any rotation).
Bought as a gift, and second day after receiving it, the round plug got jammed in a bunch of ways and bent the 4 pins inside by the recipient
Had to order another ac power adapter, as the plastic on the cord end all mangled.
No guides or shaped areas or markings to ensure correct alignment , like those on your pc mouse/keyboard connections.

4 stars for price and functionality, 2 stars for poor design.

ASRock 990FX Extreme9 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: DDR3 2400
PCI slot
8 Core

Cons: Read the fine print---OC the ram or OC the CPU, not both.
No success at all OC the 9590 FX (Black Edition) even minimally.
USB 3 drivers a bugger to get to work, and the onboard connections cheap and weak---1 broke on first plugin of cable.
Xboost doesn't work at all.
ATXU useless
NOT a fan of UEFI Bios.

Other Thoughts: Wanted 2400 ram, needed PCI slot for High end ASIO audio.
You get what you pay for, and this was the only board available with a PCI slot, all others have gone to PCIe exclusive. Quite a downgrade from the Asus ROG board it replaced, (6 core and 16 gb 2133)
If you are not a tweaker, and just need a plug and go board with a pci slot, and are willing to mess around with the usb 3 driver---and are very gentle plugging things in, it's a decent enough, and inexpensive enough, board for the new 8 core FX chips.

GEAR HEAD WC1100BLU 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam

4 out of 5 eggs Nice and Cheap 06/08/2012

This review is from: GEAR HEAD WC1100BLU 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam

Pros: For a cheap skypecam, can't be beat. Mic is adequate, but not spectacular.

Cons: Not going to be used for any great pics or video.

Other Thoughts: What do you expect for under $15? LED's are a nice touch and adjustable, but a mistranslation in some adverts----NOT night-vision (I was aware of this and purchased for the extra lighting)
