Pros: Workhorse and awesome miner card.
Cons: current prices due to greedy manufacturers and resellers like newegg selling Higher than msrp. Very Sad indeed.
Overall Review: I had to change some settings on my card to get it to mine correctly. You might want to do some research before you blame the card or technology like a previous reviewer ;>
Cons: the cost a lot more now
Overall Review: a lot of memory errors i have seen are due to handling and cleaning. Cleaning and reseating memory can solve many problems. Oils and other contaminants on the hands get on the gold fingers and cause errors.
Before you rma clean your memory sticks. And yes touching the gold is not a good idea but hey its only money.
Questions ask G.Skill.
Pros: fast cheap and a great drive..
Pros: my single stage blew a cap and a bud found one here for cheap and got it within a few days .
Overall Review: i would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for this specific refrigeration capacitor.
Pros: work great but you have to clean the item you stick them to first
i always uset artic cleaner 2 part kit.
Cons: newegg stopped carrying them (bring them back)
or at least the rectangular ones in black
Overall Review: they use industry standard 3m thermal adhesive tape.
clean memory first. make sure cleaner doesnt leave residue
push hard and read directions.
there is always artic thermal interface glue.
Pros: I really like roku The roku is a great appliance.
since they were out of refurbished unit and I couldn't get crossship I just bought a new one. got problem solved in 2 days. Tons of channels.
new unit works like a champ. now im very happy.
Cons: The refurbished unit had issues with hdmi. if this is a facory refurbished unit someone should have tested that a tv box could show streaming movies . The hdmi port could not connect securely. I was replacing a roku 2 that worked fine. Newegg was out of refurbished unit. refurb had 90 day warranty.
Overall Review: Roku CS had me connecting wireless port even tho I had good speed on my wired connection. And just doing odd tests that had nothing to do with the issue. I finally had to stop and ask him why he was asking me to do things that had nothing to do with the issue. ( after they had me reset the unit and I lost all of my data for the 3rd time. Spent hours on phone.
Pros: it kind of worked until it leaked but it was much smaller than I expected. about the size of a baseball.
Cons: first it got stuck in the on position, then it leaked water and died.
Pros: These are the good ones.. They just work. Great price vs performance ratio and life will be fine and dandy from now on.
Cons: Clown Reviews. People with limited experience attempting to teach the room. Its really a shame that hardware of this quality gets beat down by a Internet troll.
Overall Review: It doesn't matter its our secret. Let them get the other stuff.
Pros: $22.00 with free ship. Fast.
I wanted something fast to transfer drivers and backups to my bench machines.
Cons: hard to find the good ones without searching.. if that's a con.
Overall Review: I hesitated purchasing thinking it would take a while to get my product. but It was not long at all.
Pros: some of the best memory for the money
im not sure if this memory is thicker but it is a little harder to get to seat than some of my other memory. *push memory in by edge of pcb not heatsink. The heatsink can slide down stopping it from seating correctly.
Cons: memory heat sink is short but it can interfere with the memory seating all the way. I have broken more thumbnails pushing this memory in all the way :>
Overall Review: if my memory ever fails to get seen by bios 99% of the time
Pros: I have used this with a couple of closed loop radiator kits for the cpu and gpu mod on overclock dot net. ( using a clc on a gpu )
Its a fairly sturdy case that is easily modded to make room for the radiators. Just unscrew some of the many hdd cages and you have tons of room.
Its also a good lookng case.
Cons: At this price its hard to find one but I didnt see any.
Overall Review: I have two 7970 lightnings a 3770k all on closed loop coolers. 2x 240 rads and one 120 rad. Quiet cool and overclocks like a champ.
Pros: Great card no problems. price was awesome when I got mine and it came with a current game. Really happy at the price vs performance with this card. Too bad I haven't seen this card that cheap since.
Cons: not as cheap as the first one.
Overall Review: the asetek gpu bracket for the dual cpu/gpu closed loop cooler kit fits directly on this card. Should be the same as the asetek 740gf for those of you who want to cheaply water cool their cards. search gpu mod on ocn.
Pros: cool keyboard works great no issues
Great price!!! So i bought a 2nd one but a little different model for wife.
normally im pretty easy on my hardware but i have been overclocking in a contest and this keyboard hasnt had the best treatment and works flawlessly. I do throw it in a box when i travel.
Cons: I had to slow down typing a bit because its much easier to type than on my regular keyboards. Once I got used to the speed increase my typing speed went up a fair amount. Not really a con just easier to type so it took a bit to get used to.
Overall Review: Get em while the're hot!
Pros: The price just went down.:> These fans work great and i cant even hear them over my 200mm case fans which are quiet. These fans are surface pressure fans for radiators or clc coolers. they work great! The color rings are a nice touch and they even come with a speed reducer if you think they are too loud.
These are the fans to get or the performance model if you have a radiator.
These cool better than my other quiet fans at lower rpm. Great job corsair!
Cons: when i bought the first set of these they were 39.99 at a major retailer.
however newegg had them for 13.00 cheaper for the set! So Go newegg.
i got them fast.
Overall Review: while my anti vibration mounts worked well, some people have complaned that you cant use standard fan screws or that mounting this way can cause issues. I just used the stock fan screws that came with my closed loop cooler and they worked great.
Pros: This is my second cooler master haf 22. awesome case.
Overall Review: got this on sale and price vs performance its a winner. easy to use, smart construction. lots of room. Great cooling.
Pros: exactly what i wanted. fast ship.
Pros: This is a nice but inexpensive little box. Its lightweight and has nice sound but didnt seem to get very loud at all. when i tested it was outside. I got it onsale for about 34.99. It was a gift for a family member and we tested it out by the pool. I didnt have an ipod or iphone to test but i did use a Ipad with the mini headphone style jack.
(remember the ipad 2 does not put out much volume) I was not able test
Cons: I have a new simular altec lansing portable unit also and this was not as loud.
Overall Review: Sometimes i like loud music and sometimes i dont. This unit is very nice for low voume applications. I debated going 4 stars as I think its a great unit but the volume is a issue. This is a GREAT reseller. I would buy from them anytime. Fast ship.
Pros: vista 64 bit and win 7 lots of features
Cons: people that dont or cant read system requirements and expect the lowest priced video card to do miracles. aka church video. :>
Overall Review: a low priced nle (non linear editor ) with a lot of optoins. for faster encoding spend a few hard earned dollars for speed.
Pros: nice looking card, great heatpipe cooling solution, promo code, rebate = 199.99. This is the price performance i was looking for. Great packaging. the box it came in is like a small shoebox. Ordered yesterday right before noon, got today. free shipping, 2.99 fast ship optioin. Great customer service.
Cons: I wish there was a version sold with only a vrm and memory cooling plate and fan. I would like to add my own water cooling or closed loop had to this card. Its just a waste to have to pay more for a great heatpipe and then add my own closed loop water system and figue out how to cool the memory and vrms.
Overall Review: this will compiment my system well. Sabertooth 990fx and fx-8120 should enjoy this card as much as i will.
After i get to spend some time with the board I will update.
for the guy that says this killed his motherboard, wow. I feel you pain but there are so many reasons that this could happen. you might want to do some research on vrms and it sounds like a power problem either power supply or board power. No board specs no voltage specs etc. and no name.
Pros: does what it says it does
Cons: save money if you want both and get the dual pack. Or if you can get this at a discount and dont need both grab it.
Overall Review: This software comes in adobe photoshop elements and adobe premier in one package. If you can get either for a discount and dont want/ need the other grab it. Also Video editing requres a lot of system resourses. If you have minimum requirements and programs running in the background, you might have problems. So follow tech support suggestions top companies like adobe usually have good support.
Pros: works great and ran all of my apps and has google downloads. Awesome price.Other brand cheaper units i tried in dec didnt have google apps or were cheap.
Cons: You can get screen protector... if still available for fingerprints.
The main issue and why i had to return my unit (bought elseware in dec. for 200.00 new.) The only way to charge this unit is mini usb port.I would get a right angle cable. Startech 3 ft. micro usb cable.- a to right angle mcro b.
Too bad they didnt install a simple charger port on it. Baby the port and you have saved yoursef a lot of money. Not as fast as an ipad but that costs $ trust me i bought one.
Overall Review: Major membership warehouses in town had these for 200 in dec. new. Closest tablet i could find at the time was the samsng galexy. If you can get a bluetooth keyboard. In a perfect world someone could install a simple charging port and this would be golden. I had sandisk 32 gig ultra III memory in it. I had two units but my special needs son was a bit rough with them... I treated mine with kid gloves but both had charging issues before the month was out.
Pros: I thought people were bragging a bit but this drive lives up to the hype. Win7
with asrock board and quick boot the only wait is typing my username/pass.
No issues at all.
Cons: No cable lock.
Overall Review: The DOA's could be firmware but first time i booted it didnt see the drive. My cable had shifted slightly and reseated and no problems. Im going to loop a rubberband around the cable and wrap around the drive for a makeshift cable lock. If you dont get into your case this wont be a issue. There are two different types of screws. One set is machine thread the other self tapping triangle thread. If you put in the wrong screws You could have an issue but any tech worth his salt knows this. The slow part of installing a game or program now is reading from the dvd-rom if you want to call that slow. GREAT purchase. Will get annother.
Pros: easy setup. works as advertized.
Cons: not a shell shocker... :<
Overall Review: ordering a second one for a security system to get wireless access.
Pros: 80 plus modular design great airflow.
I had a intermittant issue with my system. unit would loose shut down. I had a newer brand name power supply in there with plenty of watts. Replaced it with this one and problem solved.
Overall Review: I would by annother.
