Great Drive

Western Digital Black WD7502AAEX 750GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Black WD7502AAEX 750GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works great. Not any louder than any other hard drive I have ever owned.

Cons: If you are looking for huge speed increases, you won't be happy. It is a little bit faster than my 500 gig WD black with the 32 mb cache and 3Gb transfer rate.

Overall Review: I almost didn't buy this because of all of the reviews saying it was so loud. Now I am glad I purchased it.

Most Critical Review

Good while it lasted

AVG Anti-Virus 2014 - 1 PC - Product Key Card

Pros: Seemed to work while the license lasted. Good thing I got it on sale.

Cons: It claims the license is over after less than 60 days. I guess I thought I was buying a 1 year license. Never Again. It's not worth calling to try to get it straightened out.

Nice Board

Pros: Feels like a quality product. Has USB 3.1 and I didn't have any problems with the install.

Cons: The ASUS software gives error messages when I get into windows. The newest software off of their site does the same thing.

Great Deal

Run Away!!

AMD FX-8150 - FX-Series Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz/4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor with Liquid Cooling Kit - FD8150FRGUWOX
AMD FX-8150 - FX-Series Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz/4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor with Liquid Cooling Kit - FD8150FRGUWOX

Pros: The liquid cooling looks good.

Cons: It is not a real 8 core processor. Do some research and find out before you get ripped off. If I was looking to buy the slowest processor for the most money, then this would be the processor to buy. My 4 year old 6 core AMD is faster! Save some money and buy the 4 core AMD for $99 or buy a real processor like an i7 or an i5.

Overall Review: I bought it while it was on sale and about an hour later saw a review saying it was not a real 8 core. The more I investigated, the more I wish I could have canceled the order. Now I am stuck with a piece of garbage. The instructions for the liquid cooling install are bad too.

Rebate

PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 700 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ700MXSP)

Pros: Quality is great. I like everything about it.

Cons: I bought mine 4 months ago and did the $30 rebate thing. I just received notification that in 1 to 2 more weeks, they would be sending my rebate (Visa gift card). If you don't mind waiting almost 5 months for your rebate, then the product is great.

Overall Review: The product was priced well enough that if I didn't get the rebate, it was still worth what I paid. If you don't mind waiting over 4 months for your rebate, then you will like the product.
