Most Favorable Review

Feature packed and worked out-of-the-box!

MSI PERFORMANCE GAMING B450I GAMING PLUS AC AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
MSI PERFORMANCE GAMING B450I GAMING PLUS AC AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - Relatively decent connectors placement - Affordable - Looks good - Multiple aptly named sensors - Fan control can use multiple sensors, switch 3 or 4 pins, everything that's expected out of a 2018 product (finally!) - Nice coloured I/O shield

Cons: - Only one system fan header - Front panel connectors are a bit weirdly positioned.

Overall Review: Recommend!

Most Critical Review

works as it should!

NEC 1770VX-BK 17" LCD MONITOR, 1280 X 1024 RES, 5MS, 250 CD/M2, 600:1 CONTRAST RATIO
NEC 1770VX-BK 17" LCD MONITOR, 1280 X 1024 RES, 5MS, 250 CD/M2, 600:1 CONTRAST RATIO

Pros: - fine little screen for little money. love refurbs for that!

Cons: - menu joystick is scaringly loose!

Overall Review: was hoping it would accept older 15khz signals as i've had luck with another NEC screen of the same era, but nope, no dice.

The anti-hype against that GPU is in some ways valid and others, invalid

Pros: - Power-savvy - Low heat output - Very silent - Powerful enough for 1080p in most games, and lowering the rendering resolution a little can go a long way in more demanding games - AMD drivers impress me way more than back a few years! I'm not sure, but I could almost say that my PC runs smoother than when I had an Nvidia one (official long-term conclusion still pending)

Cons: - Still a less powerful successor to the 5500xt, which, THAT, makes no sense - Gimped in some weird ways (explained by the fact that it's a converted laptop GPU though) - Expensive compared to 2 years ago, but reasonable in the current market (may change soon)

Overall Review: I'd recommend to anyone who likes low-end low-power low-heat output GPUs, and still wants good performance. Blows away older GPUs like the RX 560 and is in the ballpark of an RX 580, without the insane power consumption!

Good mouse overall, buttons too stiff for prolonged use!

Overall Review: Takes a while to get used to, because it's quite heavy, and the button clicks are so stiff. I'm struggling and I have to switch to another mouse to do photoshop work, because it tires my hands/fingers super fast. That being said, it feels high quality, the movement is precise and the receiver doesn't have hiccups like so many other wireless mice I've used.

Great affordable alternative to the "boutique" SFF case

Pros: - Looks stylish, very clean lines - Super lightweight - Lots of room for such a small enclosure - Everything lines up properly

Cons: - Seems SO easy to break - Insides scratch quite easily - PSU bracket doesn't lock into place, it rattles noisily when moving the case or plugging things into the PSU - Wish there were some ways/mechanism to route cables, especially that PSU extension connector - Very loose fit for the I/O shield (doesn't stick well in place even with M/B in)

Overall Review: I'd totally recommend to anyone who wants a small ITX case, but still wanna be able to breathe while working inside of it. Photos are taken on my workbench. I'm using the very affordable raijintek rhea cooler in this build, cooling an i5-11400 very well BTW, and fits well in this case, with roughly 1/4 inch to spare. No case fan for now, will see how things work in the future and if I need to add any.

Really good price to performance ratio

Pros: - Cools down my i5-11400 quite well - Flimsy yet solidly built - Often overlooked, but the fan cable is nicely sleeved and short enough not to be a bother

Cons: - I'll concur the others, this DOES NOT include an AMx bracket, it's only for LGA 115x/1200 sockets! - 2 of the pushpins were bent a bit and it took a bit of finagling before I could understand how to insert them properly without breaking them

Overall Review: Does a good job for the price, there's no denying it!
