Pros: Big screen size. Super fast desktop like performance. Latest AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPU and Nvidia Ampere GPU. It's amazing!
Cons: 2021 and doesn't have a webcam?
Overall Review: It is the best option out there if you're looking for desktop like performance in laptop form.
Pros: Works as it should. I have it in the back of my house a good distance and a few walls that it has to travel through and as I'm typing this I have full signal.
Overall Review: Took me a sec. to figure how to set it up but it's not hard at all.
Pros: Free games
Cons: Already owned AC4 for PS4 and don't care for the other game.
Pros: GPU Boost 2.0, uses less power than 580.
Cons: Not really any faster than a GTX 580.
Overall Review: Only bought this card because my GTX 580 burnt out on me.
Pros: Able to tether my phone to my desktop now. I use my phone as our home internet so needed a wireless card and this works great and is fast.
Cons: Not the toughest thing but I don't move my desktop so I shouldn't have to worry about it breaking. 1 egg off for that though.
Overall Review: Got it for $25.00 on sale.
Pros: Moves air. Quiet. Looks alright.
Cons: It's a cheap fan but it does what it was built to do.
Overall Review: Bought 2 for a homemade water cooling setup I made for my desktop. Had to put one in an old PSU as it's fan was bad. The other on a small transmission radiator. Works just fine for me.
Pros: As title says. Works
Cons: Overpriced. Slow. Not a universal micro SD.
Pros: Looks awesome. Helps with temps for with the memory on the other side of the card. Also helps protect the card on the top.
Cons: No cons. It helps out the card a little so don't see how there could be any.
Overall Review: It's nothing really needed but if you want to protect the back of the card and help with memory temps a little then this will do the job.
Pros: Looks and feels awesome. Build quality is great. Performance is more than I expected. Running faster than my 2 GTX 580's I had in SLI that were even overclocked. That is with the GTX 780 OC'ed as well though. +116 on the core with stock voltage. +300 on the memory.
Cons: Cost. But it does look awesome so i'll let that pass I guess. Got my 2 580's for $200 each and is about the same performance but I don't like messing with SLI anymore.
Overall Review: It's a great card. I'm really happy with it.
Pros: They are quiet and have bright blue led's. Enough airflow.
Cons: Wish the airflow was a little better but it's plenty for what I have them for so no big deal.
Pros: Bought a 2nd set for my sisters computer. Looks great. They are plenty bright. I've had these in my computer for 2 years now and they are still working fine.
Cons: No cons I can think of.
Pros: Sets my mind on something else when i'm hating life.
Cons: Keeps me at my computer desk away from family. Pandas are ugly as hell. In game that is. Cute in real life lol. $15 a month kind of sucks after a while.
Overall Review: Been playing since the beginning of Wrath. Hasn't got any better imo. Only paid $15. That's all it's worth.
Pros: Though I only play Hawken it's nice that Nvidia gave this out with select video cards. Thank you Nvidia.
Cons: Can't complain. It's free in-game money.....they didn't have to do that.
Pros: Bought it for my sister. It runs almost as fast as my GTX 580 at stock settings when it's overclocked. Plays Crysis 3 with no problem on highest settings. Even being overclocked I have never went over 56 C. It runs very very cool. Was very surprised. It's an awesome card.
Cons: Supports SLI but doesn't come with SLI bridge. Doesn't matter to me though. Motherboard came with one.
Overall Review: For the money you can't go wrong buying this card. For $170.00 it's a power house. My sister loves it. Going to buy another one for SLI.
Pros: It sounds much better than the on-board Realtek HD audio. Had no problem installing it. Well the card that is anyway...
Cons: I've always disliked installing the Asus Xonar drivers for all the sound cards Asus makes. I have 3 different ones from Asus. They always give me problems installing but I eventually figure them out. That's my only Con at the moment though.
Overall Review: When I bought this card for my brother I also right away just went ahead and bought a LM4562 dual op-amp chip. Some say it doesn't make a difference in the sound but I sure did hear a difference. Nothing huge but it did. That was being hooked up to my Sennheiser IE 80's though. Also if you do buy a different op-amp chip. Don't fail like me and put it in backwards. Can't believe I did that lol. Take your time changing it and do it correct.
Pros: Looks great for the price I paid. Sister said she loves it.
Cons: Vertical viewing angel not the best but but by no means bad. Wish it came with a DVI cable. I'll have to run out to the store later and buy one. Doesn't have an HDMI port but I already knew that before purchasing.
Overall Review: Paid $145.00. Can't complain. It's a great monitor. As I said before if it came with a DVI cable it would of been 100% perfect to me. Not going to take any eggs off because of the cable. Now I just got to buy a video card to power this thing lol. Intel HD 4000 graphics work but not the best lol.
Pros: Much better than my on-board Realtek HD audio. I couldn't believe the difference when I first heard it. I am really happy with it.
Cons: Doesn't fit all the way into the PCI-e x1 port on the mobo. Think the bracket is to blame but whatever it still works. the drivers work but sometimes crash or the program locks up. No big deal though just have to restart the app.
Overall Review: It should last me for years to come. Just BECAREFULL with the power adapter on the sound card. Take your time plugging it in or unplugging it. It's not the strongest power adapter. Also make sure you get the latest Asus Xonar DX Audio Center from the Asus website. That's if you want to use that app.
Pros: It's enough for me. My sister records game play with fraps onto it without any problems.
Cons: It's a HDD. Not going to be as fast as a SSD but duhh.
Overall Review: Overall its a great drive. I will only buy Western Digital HDD's
Pros: My 3rd computer build and bought this CPU for it. It's plenty fast for any game out there to date. Intel HD 4000 Graphics are not that bad. But a dedicated video card will be best.
Cons: Runs a lot hotter than the 2nd Gen. Sandy Bridge CPU's. With stock fan and the CPU at stock settings my sister gets around 75 degrees centigrade while gaming. Not nearly as fast as my other 2 builds with the i7 2600K.
Overall Review: If you don't do video editing and just gaming this is the CPU for you. But it will still do video editing fine, just slower. 1 egg off for the heating problem. Other thoughts would be if you are going to buy this CPU then get a better cooler for it also. Example Corsair H100. Just YouTube it for more reviews if you want to see it's power.
Pros: It's fast but not any faster than the Hitachi HDD I replaced. But it is so quiet you can not here it loading at all. Have bought many Western Digital HDD's and have never had any problems with any.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Huge screen. Mainly use it for gaming and it works and looks great.
Cons: The stand is very wobbly but it's fine as long as your desk dosen't shake. 5 eggs if the stand was a little better.
Pros: Bought this for my brother's PC and it is a little faster than my Intel 510 Series SSD. Very good for the price.
