Pros: Works great in the printer as it should
Cons: somewhat pricy
Pros: great output
two paper trays
Cons: This print looked like someone took loose toner and spread it all over the inside of the printer
Overall Review: AS the other reviewer stated this printer came as dirty as I have ever seen a printer! I have been cleaning on it since I got this delivered. I have found toner in places I don't know how it could get there. With that said, the printer itself has great output. It came with a second paper tray for 550 sheets! It also had a low page count. It did say that the photo-conductor needed replacement, but I reset it and seems to be working fine. I would think this would be something that would have been replaced during the "refurbishing."
I would recommend the printer, I just think Newegg may need to look for other suppliers of their refurbished printers.
Pros: no problems
does not run hot
Cons: Can not think of any except maybe if it was 6GHz!!!!!
Overall Review: Having used Intel and AMD processors, I prefer Intel. Intel just performs better out of the box. For my use, there is no reason to pay $100 extra for an i7. Never tried the on chip video so I can not say anything about that.
Pros: nice price
runs everything I need
Cons: haven't found any yet
Overall Review: I like Zotac products. I have used their motherboards and video cards in many builds. I always look for Zotac stuff first when I am building for me or others. Zotac's website is easy to use.
Pros: nice price
easy board to work with
does not have many slots, but you are not paying for them either, so if all you need is video it is great
Cons: after I put the system together it would not boot up with memory in the a-slots. No problem with the b-slots. However, I needed all four slots filled. Would not work! Sent it back to Newegg, but they would not replace it.
Overall Review: I gave it a 3 because had I not needed all four slots I would have keep the board and been very happy with it. Had Newegg replaced it as they should have, I would be a happy camper. Ended up having to buy a different board locally to get the system up and running. I have always liked Asus products and will continue to buy them. Maybe not their motherboards!!
more than enough power for most rigs
Cons: time to go modular
Overall Review: OK price with a rebate!! Never have had trouble with Corsair parts
Pros: low profile so they are out of the way
no problem using a MSI g-series board saw all 4 sticks
Cons: none that I have found
Overall Review: good memory
Pros: have built many systems through the years and this was the easiest one I have used. tons of room, more fans that you can shake a stick at, and three sides can be opened easily.
Cons: Tight under the motherboard tray if you do not use a modular power supply.
fans are loud so you might want to use others
Overall Review: It is funky shaped, but it is a great case.
