Most Favorable Review

Great CPU. Easy O/C

Intel Core2 Duo E7500 - Core 2 Duo Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.93 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80571E7500
Intel Core2 Duo E7500 - Core 2 Duo Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.93 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80571E7500

Pros: Great CPU. O/C on stock voltage and cooling to 3.4 and runs cool at 41C.

Cons: None

Overall Review: If using an older 775 board, make sure you get the latest BIOS update to run the new 45nm CPUs.

Most Critical Review

Picture does not match the product!

CHAINTECH GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card GSV86GT 512MB
CHAINTECH GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card GSV86GT 512MB

Pros: Not sure, didn't fit.

Cons: The card now ships with a fanless heatsink that is so huge that it makes this card as big as the regular size card! This is not joke, do not believe the picture that makes it look like it will fit a slim design case.

Overall Review: Does not fit the Dell Inspiron 755 slim line case due to oversized fanless heatsink which is not shown on the picture which has a fan.

Wireless Fails

NETGEAR WNDR3700-100NAS V.5 Wireless Gigabit Open Source Router/ USB port Rangemax 2.4/5 GHz Simultaneous N600 Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
NETGEAR WNDR3700-100NAS V.5 Wireless Gigabit Open Source Router/ USB port Rangemax 2.4/5 GHz Simultaneous N600 Dual Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Great Features - Per their listing.

Cons: Wireless network started to fail since first week of ownership. USB hard drive interface is EXTREMELY slow over the network. Moving files is like watching the continents align, not to mention that they will start disappearing if you do too many things at once.

Overall Review: The thing has such unreliable performance that it sat in my closet for the last 6 months... I was going to have it RMAd, but after reading what other people have went through I won't even bother. As others have suggested: DO NOT BUY THIS ROUTER

Good Processor

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.83 GHz LGA 775 95W Desktop Processor - BX80569Q9550
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.83 GHz LGA 775 95W Desktop Processor - BX80569Q9550

Pros: Noticeable improvement over the Q6600. Overclocked at 3.61 on air.

Cons: None

Great!

Fujitsu fi-6130 PA03540-B055 24 bit CCD 600 dpi Duplex Scanner

Pros: Much improved over prior 4000 and 5000 models. Has not jammed once over the last 2 months?! Very fast

Cons: None

Overall Review: Worth the money, although a bit pricey.

Great Low Profile Card!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3650 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card 100236HDMI
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3650 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card 100236HDMI

Pros: Low profile card that is actually low profile enough to fit into a mini Dell Inspiron 755. Has 246MB, quiet, cool... what else can you ask for?!

Cons: None

Overall Review: Tried 9500 and 9600 low profile cards and they were all half an inch to high for my case. This is a low profile card that actually deserves the low profile title. Look no further!
