AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7560D AD560KWOHJBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Painless install. Computer runs very fast and responsive with no problems with stability at all.

Cons: Stock cooler isn't quite enough and tends to run hot! Same issue with my other APU. I'd say they all need to be upgraded or replaced with an aftermarket cooler.

Other Thoughts: I love AMD but I'm getting a little tired of the cheap coolers they come with. My older builds came with much better stock coolers than these. I'm going to replace all of them from the start from now on because I don't approve of my APU running at over 80c while at idle even with a good quality thermal compound in use.

LOGISYS Computer CS136BK Micro ATX Computer Case with 480W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks nice and it's small and lightweight. Comes with a power supply.

Cons: worst case I've used yet. The motherboard mounting holes were drilled improperly and I was unable to use 2 standoffs properly. It appears that they were drilled in the wrong location so they tried to correct this by drilling more holes and 2 of those crossed over the old ones making huge holes where the standoff would just fall through making them useless. This case is so flimsy that if the thumb screws are off and you attempt to move the case the side will just pop off. Very difficult to get the front panel off. No back fan.

Other Thoughts: I can't believe this made it through quality control and I would have sent it back if I had the time to wait for a replacement. I've never had a problem with a case until now and I'm probably going to avoid Logisys cases for awhile if they think this is good quality.

TP-LINK TL-WA860RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender/Repeater with Power Outlet Pass-through, Dual External Antennas, Wall Plug Design, One-button Setup, Smart Signal Indicator
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A fast and reliable connection with no issues after setup. Good price for the first wireless extender I've used that actually works properly. Didn't require any additional setup with my router which is a ZyXEL X-650 dual band. The built in Ethernet port is a great feature that also works perfectly. The power outlet on the front is yet another awesome feature allowing you to continue using the outlet for other electronics. This extender is built very tough and seems like it will be very durable.

Cons: Was not able to use the push button setup for some reason. I tried using it 10 times before giving up and using the wired method which worked on the first attempt. On occasion my Samsung Galaxy S5 will connect to the extender instead of my router when I'm only a few feet from it in the same room.

Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased with this extender being the first one that works properly. I now have reliable internet in the garage and it doesn't mess up the rest of the network. The only issue I still have is with my Galaxy S5 connecting to the extender with low signal while I'm next to the router and I'm able to fix this by simply turning my WIFI on the phone off then back on again in which it connects to the router. This seems to only be an issue with my phone as my wife's and all of our guests phones seem to work properly and connect to the stronger signal wherever they happen to be on the property.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for an extender.
