Most Favorable Review

good for the price

ASUS Desktop PC Essentio CM5571-BR003 Pentium E5400 (2.70GHz) 6GB DDR3 750GB HDD Intel GMA X4500 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
ASUS Desktop PC Essentio CM5571-BR003 Pentium E5400 (2.70GHz) 6GB DDR3 750GB HDD Intel GMA X4500 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Seems to be a good PC for the price.

Cons: Came preloaded with Best Buy crapware. PC was purchased through Newegg.

Most Critical Review

2 moths and waiting on customer support

Cooler Master Real Power Pro RS-750-ACAA-A1 750 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Cooler Master Real Power Pro RS-750-ACAA-A1 750 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: It works, just not with the MSI K9A2 board.

Cons: Returned power supply per Cool Masters instructions with a RMA# and was informed I would be getting a refund within the week. Four weeks later and no refund. I called them 6 times so far this week and they will either hang up or tell you the manager will call you back, never received a single call from them. AVOID COOLMASTER AT ALL COST!!!

Overall Review: Newegg.com had everything at my door within the 2 days when using 3 day shipping.

Short lived

ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Worked great for 3 weeks.

Cons: This router worked great for a little over 3 weeks. From that point on it's been nothing but issues. Every day or two our internet will stop working. Unplugging the router for 30 seconds always fixes the issue. I have tried calling Asus a couple times, both times where on the way to work. My drive is right at a hour and neither time have I been able to speak to anyone. I've tried the live chat about 20 times, every time I get someone about 1 minute into our conversation I get a message saying they are having technical issues and get disconnected. I guess that would be proof they are using their own equipment.

Overall Review: I did have the Asus RT-N16 prior to this and NEVER had an issue. Guess quality has gone way down in hte past 3 years.

Nothing Low Noise about it

CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850 W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850 W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Semi modular design.

Cons: The fan on this PSU is very, very loud. Just surfing the web the fan runs about 90% of the time, if gaming it runs 100% of the time. The fan is louder than all 4 of my case fans combined. Don't waste your money on this unit.

VERY poor customer service

Pros: Love the design of this case but the build quality seems to be somewhat poor.

Cons: One of the quick swap trays in the bottom of the case broke the very first time I tried to remove it. I called customer support later that day and spent almost 2 hours on hold before being disconnected.

has issues.

Pros: Not bad for the price other than the one issue listed below.

Cons: Second monitor is not detected after exiting sleep mode. Contacted customer support and was told that it was a known issue but they have no plans to fix it and that if I was lucky AMD "may" fix it someday in a driver update.
