Great Chair

DXRacer Formula Series OH/FD01/NR Newedge Edition Mesh Recliner Esport Racing Bucket Seat Office Gaming Chair With Pillows
DXRacer Formula Series OH/FD01/NR Newedge Edition Mesh Recliner Esport Racing Bucket Seat Office Gaming Chair With Pillows

Pros: Very comfortable, adjustable height, angle and lumbar, high quality materials, looks cool. Easy to assembly

Cons: Full height isn't very high

Overall Review: After seeing many gamers using DXRacer chairs on Twitch.tv I started being very curious about them since I need a new computer chair. I was a bit spectacle about spending the money but it turns out this is one of my best purchases of 2014. This is the most comfortable chair I ever owned. My only complaint is that the chair may not be high enough for some people.

Most Critical Review

Worst assembly design ever

Baseltek 6 GPU Aluminum Mining Rig Open Air Frame Case for Bitcoin Ethereum
Baseltek 6 GPU Aluminum Mining Rig Open Air Frame Case for Bitcoin Ethereum

Pros: Looks ok

Cons: horrible instructions terrible design

Overall Review: These were mass produced and engineered to be machined as fast as possible and shipped out to sell as fast as possible. Assembly is a nightmare. They don't have pre drilled holes on the frames instead u slide a square nut in a rail and guess where you want to screw things together. Would have been a lot better if they predrilled the holes for screws instead of the stupid square nut drop in design. You have to readjust each time u put a frame part together.

Miss Leading advertising for "Mining".

ASUS Prime Z390-P LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z390 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard for Cryptocurrency Mining (BTC) with Above 4G Decoding, 6 x PCIe Slot and USB 3.1 Gen2

Pros: Turns on and runs reliable for past month

Cons: Only supports max 4 GPUs.

Overall Review: Misleading advertisement "mining". Only supports max 4 GPUs. No mention of that anywhere. I assume it would support 6 because of the number of PCIe slots. I bought 6 not knowing this. Will not detect more than 4GPU. Tried 6 on older different brand motherboard and all 6 works fine. Now I have to stick with 4GPU with this new motherboard.

Works Great, Fast, LOUD

HGST Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA641 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive
HGST Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA641 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive

Pros: Fast WORKS NO ERRORS Found

Cons: LOUD Heavy Usage

Overall Review: I was skeptical of buying a refurbished hard drive that reviewers were saying had long hours of usage. However I needed to replace an old drive going bad. I took a risk and won. So far everything works fine and SMART tested no errors. I may buy another one to replace another drive in another computer.

Totally Boombastic

ONKYO TX-SR313 5.1-Channel 3D-Ready Home Theater Receiver
ONKYO TX-SR313 5.1-Channel 3D-Ready Home Theater Receiver

Pros: I bought this for my kids game room for the media pc, xbok 360, uverse hd tv, etc to upgrade an old HDMI-less Yamaha RXV-361 receiver. Item performs well. Only rated at 65wpc but its enough to power my Polk Monitor 50, 30, CS1, PSW10 system. Sound was actually surprisingly good! Low THD, decent SNR, good components (burrbrown DACs). Besides all those specs the sound was impressive for my setup and the kids definitely enjoy it. Good quality, feature rich at affordable price.

Cons: Will not do HDMI upconvert. I have a Wii using HD Components to the Onkyo receiver. The receiver will not pass it through HDMI, I have to connect another pair of components cables from the receiver to the TV. There is no option for the HDMI upconvert.

Pros: I was a bit skeptical when ordering this because there have been mixed reviews online. This is a great monitor. I'm a DBA and coding on this monitor is a dream. I'm also a photography hobbyist and photos look amazing. Beautiful colors, nice sharpness, everything is wonderful. I'm happy and will buy 2 more to run eyefinity to play games!

Cons: not led
