DELL OptiPlex 780 (NE1-0034) Desktop PC Core 2 Duo 2.93GHz 8GB 1.5TB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Windows 7 64-bit pro, Service Pack 1 with install disk
8gb memory (but, see con below)
Runs very quiet and cool
1.5TB hard drive
Will work for business related tasks

Cons: I should have downloaded the users manual from Dell before buying. This is an old machine with Socket 775 LGA and Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93 GHz.
Memory is 4 x 2GB PC3-10700 (667 MHz, but actuall runs at 533 MHz)
Bus speed 266 MHz, so FSB:DRAM is 2:1
No wireless
Only USB 2.0 ports (no 3.0)
Power Supply only 220W
PCI Express 2.0
Required 127 windows updates (300 mb) - don't update the platform update since it indicates shut downs like the previous review. I did not do this update

Other Thoughts: I upgraded the primary hard drive to a SSD and use the 1.5TB as the secondary HD. It runs fast, mostly because of the large memory and SSD. This is not a gaming machine, but I purchased for business purposes only.
Win7 Performance ratings:
Processor: 6.5
Memory: 6.5
Graphics: 4.4
Gaming Graphics: 3.5 -> 4.5 after updated optional hardware in MSFT updates
Primary Hard Drive: 5.9 -> 7.4 after updating to SSD (note, similar model SSD has 7.9 rating on newer system)

PQI Nano 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6338-032GR2XXX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent 07/29/2013

This review is from: PQI Nano 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6338-032GR2XXX

Pros: Not thick to block a second USB port, very fast with USB 3.0. I am very happy with the large capacity and speed.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Looked at all options. This USB stick did not have all the marketing behind it compared to others, but the specs speak for themselves.

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Windows 7 performance rating increased to 7.8 on my Dell E6430 that only had single 4gb stick before the upgrade.

Cons: First set of stick had one bad. Very disappointed to RMA and ask for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: I was a loyal G.Skill customer... not considering other memory when looking. Great memory, but the unfortunate incident with bad memory has me looking at other options in the future.
