Pros: Insanely fast, overclocks easily to 4.3/4.6GHz turbo with no volt bump, 4.6/4.9GHz turbo with slight bump and stable. Temps are 28c idle, 52c load (stock) and 37c/68c @ 4.6/4.9 on air. Didn't stick with overclocking as at this point its not needed for my use. Boots to Win10 x64 @ login screen in less than 4 sec. both stock and OC. Even at full load, system is 98% quiet with 4x fans.
Cons: I didn't get it from Newegg, sorry guys, I still love you but my local retailer had a better deal.
Other Thoughts: I have built many PC's and I'll admit, I am an AMD fan. I am all about supporting the little guy. AMD is in hard times and I can't imagine what Intel's pricing will be if AMD goes under. I had my heart set on an AMD build once again but coming from my old 2007 build of a Phenom 2 940 to this is astounding. Even the latest and greatest AMD system was not very comparable to my old 940 so I decided to fork over some extra green to build this. I like it, its not AMD but I still am very impressed. I did, however go with a R9 Nano 4GB which makes a nice paring with this system.

Pros: Awesome little computer (if you're not a gamer, albeit plays Minecraft very smoothly). Very snappy on everyday PC use and performs well.
Cons: Does not like hidden WiFi SSID's. Will connect initially, but is reluctant to connect from then on. Also gets pretty hot but hasn't yet given any problems as far as temperature. Only 32GB of SSD space and 2GB ram. Currently is having trouble with the latest major update for WinX, keep getting errors saying not enough HD space yet I have only the bare essentials installed. Even uninstalled Minecraft to allow the update with no avail. This is what cohered me to deduct an egg.
Other Thoughts: Overall I like it. other than the cons its a nice purchase for the price. I will recommend but if major updates to win 10 continue to fail, I'd be cautious. May the force be with you...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to setup/use. After its firmware update, everything works as expected as I tested every aspect of the device and was able to access its web UI out of the box without the use of its software. Transfer speeds are 4x faster than my old DNS321 which I've had for years, I only hope it lasts as long.
Cons: Unlike the DNS321, you have to screw the drives to their respective trays which won't make for an easy drive swap. Also, there is no drive or network activity lights. I share my media library with myself and some friends outside and it would be nice to know if/when its being accessed. How well the unit works, its not worthy of any egg deductions.
I didn't get mine from Newegg.
Other Thoughts: My old 321 sustained 10-15MB/s if I was lucky with jumbo frames. This unit gets upwards of 50MB/s+. A huge upgrade for roughly the same price I paid for the 321 back in 2010.READ FULL REVIEW
