-Looks great with my current build
Cons: -No Cons
Overall Review: Installed Windows 10 with the RAM settings at default, and was detected at 2133MHz like it should be. After the Install I enabled XMP and the RAM worked perfectly at the 3200MHz specifications.
If you want to run this RAM at the 3200MHz its rated for, you MUST enable XMP in your UEFI/BIOS
Pros: -Good Speed
-Cheap Price for SSHD
Cons: -Nothing So Far
Overall Review: I have not owned this product long enough to know whether or not I can recommend it. I have not had good luck with Seagate HDD's in the past. Enough time has passed that I am willing to give Seagate another shot, if this drive fails prematurely I don't think I will ever buy another drive from them.
I want to like Seagate drives because they are some of the cheapest/GB drive available, so lets hope this works out.
Pros: XMP works just like it should.
Slapped RAM in and had no issues at all.
Overall Review: If you want to run this RAM at 3200MHz that it's pre rated up to. You must enable XMP Profiles, if you do not enable this option in your BIOS the ram will run at 2133MHz
Pros: I got this drive for a computer build I was making for someone. I normally use the 850 Pro's for my builds but the price was excellent. This thing boots extremely fast with windows 10.
Cons: Early owner but no complaints yet.
Overall Review: I would recommend this drive to anyone looking for a good fast SSD. If you are afraid to go with the EVO over the PRO, don't worry they are both very fast and you would not notice the difference in speeds.
Pros: I haven't owned this very long at all but, i was expecting a nice sound system. What I got blew my expectations out of the water...this system sounds very nice, granted i'm not used to having something this powerful for a computer setup. The speakers look nice sitting next to my monitors and the knobs on the right side speaker have a very nice solid feeling to them. Everything feels of high quality.
Cons: This is a refurbished unit so i was hoping for perfection but in reality that is not typically what you get... i opened mine and noticed a scratch on a corner of the sub woofer... this sub will be sitting under my desk and not really be seen so this is not a huge problem... i could also probably cover this up with something to make it look nice if i ever took it out from under the desk.
The right side speaker cable is a little short, i have it stretched to the max currently... i could probably use some kind of adapter and extend it more if i needed to but i will have to check on that.
Overall Review: Overall i am very impressed with this setup and i would recommend this. Sometimes you get lucky with refurbished units and get perfect ones... this wasn't exactly the case but i really cant complain about something that minor... it was probably a return unit because of the imperfection and everything else didn't get opened at all.
Pros: It connected to my wireless and worked.
Didn't have to install drivers when plugging into Windows 8.
Overall Review: I haven't tried using this on Windows 7 yet but i'm guessing the plug and play will work on that as well.
Pros: Good Wireless coverage, nice features.
Cons: Not version 2
Overall Review: I bought this thinking it was the version 2 model. When I got the package it turned out to be a version 1 model so I am returning it and i have already bought a 6300 version 1 for $80
Pros: Great picture. Received mine with no dead pixels. No damage at all in anyway. Deep black colors and bright white colors. response time is great never see any blurring.
Cons: Not really a con but, the picture modes are pretty useless. I like to use the theater mode when playing games as this has a nice dark black and does not seem like over contrasting like the other modes. I leave it on this mode all of the time.
Overall Review: Great monitor for anyone looking for a nice big screen.
Pros: Great performance. I see a lot of people complaining that this HDD runs loud, i do not seem to have any noise issues with mine.
Cons: Not really a con but the reason i took an egg off was because, there is no real performance boost between the sata 3 and sata 2 versions and 32MB cache vs the 64MB cache. its stated that all of these have speeds of 126MB/s.
This document is listed in the details. I did not notice this until after purchasing.
Overall Review: Save a few bucks and get the sata 32MB version.
Pros: I get great FPS in every game i have played so far. with 1080p resolutions and everything on high details. Crysis is the only exception so far but Crysis 2 is easily maxed out settings. When gaming this graphic card has only hit 74 Celsius which i think is pretty good having 2 monitors hooked up with one used for temps and specs. Cheap Card for great performance
Overall Review: Easy install and easy setup. This is a great card for most gamers unless you are looking to do gaming above 1080p
Pros: ATX size with awesome performance. This motherboard was easy to install and had no problems with it at all.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: The PCI slot does get covered up when you put a double wide Graphic card in, but this is very common with motherboards as standard PCI is outdated.
I would recommend this Motherboard to everyone.
Pros: This is a full size tower which is very big. Great for big a bug PSU or Graphic Card. A lots of expansion bays. This is a very nice looking case, i love it! It comes with 4 fans and there is room for 3 more fans. (the big side fan will not fit with a big cpu coolers) This case has very nice cable management.
Cons: The only con i have with this case is that there is a screw that hold that side panel on that was not threaded corectly and i am unable to screw it all the way in. This is not a real big deal tho.
Overall Review: I would recommend this case to anyone looking for a cheap big beautiful case.
The fan controller is a pretty nice feature even tho i leave mine on full speed all the time anyways.
Pros: Great Price for mid-high range graphic card.
I only have 60Hz Monitor so my max FPS is 60.
Runs Killing Floor at 1680 x 1050 at 60FPS on max settings including vsync on.
Runs Need For Speed Hot Pursuit at 1680 x 1050 at 60 FPS.
Have not tried crysis yet but i know crysis 2 will be maxed out as my friend has a GTX 470 and can run that maxed.
Cons: I've only noticed this on one game so far but, playing need for speed hot pursuit (2010), I notice some ghosting of the trees and other background graphics and they will flash on random occasions. Its been the only game so far tho. Didn't take an egg off because it could be an issue just for my self that i can fix.
Overall Review: Recommended for anyone on a budget and looking for a great graphic card to play all of the new games with high graphic setting.
Don't expect to play the extremely high graphical games like metro 2033 on high settings with a higher resolution than 1920 x 1080.
