Most Favorable Review

Had to RMA first one

XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity
XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity

Pros: Nice card, well reviewed, right now I can run any game out there, The replacement HD 5850 has been FLAWLESS New Egg was top notch with the RMA A+ New Egg.

Cons: I had to RMA the first one, it worked fine for a day then would crash out every 10 min or so, even at idle (desktop) I even built a new system to test it and it crashed that system too, the system would lock up with vertical lines on the screen

Overall Review: XFX support kept accusing me of overclocking my system which I do not do (no need yet) XFX support also blamed my system which was running fine before the upgrade

Most Critical Review

Problematic. Poor WiFi signal since firmware update.

Linksys WRT1900ACS Open Source Ready Smart Wi-Fi Gigabit Router Supported by DD-WRT, eSATA / USB 3.0 (WRT1900ACS)
Linksys WRT1900ACS Open Source Ready Smart Wi-Fi Gigabit Router Supported by DD-WRT, eSATA / USB 3.0 (WRT1900ACS)

Pros: Nice shade of blue

Cons: wo firmware updates since I've owned it. (40 days) I'm one of the folks having the dropping to 2mbps problems. Every day I had to reboot it to get networking performance back. I just updated to the latest firmware. (1.0.0.172978) The speed dropping to 2mbps problem seems to be resolved with the new firmware. I now have a problem with WiFi coverage. It has been drastically reduced in WiFi range. Both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz range are reduced. This WRT1900ACS replaced an old TP-Link $45.00 router. The old TP-Link and my new $200.00 router now have about the same 2.4GHz WiFi range. I'm pretty sure I'm sending the new unit back to Linksys and installing my old router because the range seems better with the old $45.00 router.

Overall Review: I have checked with the official Linksys support forums. I'm not alone. Just google WRT1900ACS problems. You'll see. Also check Youtube if you're interested. Belkin now owns the Linksys name. Yes it is a Belkin router... I have owned a computer repair shop for 17 years. btw.

A not an over the top gaming rig

DELL Desktop Computer Inspiron 5675 i5675-A268BLU-PUS Ryzen 5 1400 (3.20GHz) 8GB DDR4 1TB HDD AMD Radeon RX 560 Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

Pros: A gaming rig that also looks like a mostly regular desktop unit. The blue lighting is nice and not over the top gaudy. Sturdy and well built. The unit is very quiet under normal load.

Cons: none that come to mind

Overall Review: Most of the time I'm not gaming and the unit is being used as an office computer too. No over the top embarrassing bright lighting in an office environment.

Pros: Great paperweight!!!

Cons: after installing the drive formatting etc, I was getting system hang, I checked the drive with HD Tune and found 22.3% of the drive had bad blocks! Not New Eggs fault but what a PITA and over $7.00 to ship it back?!?!
