Pros: Resolution is excellent. Measures 23" diagonal exactly. Great price and Acer is high quality.
Cons: Wish the height was a couple of inches higher. Need 1 or 2 thick books to elevate it. The connector is on the bottom. It has dropped out a couple of times when video is moved forward.
Pros: The aesthetics and functionality is superb. The fan air movement of the four fans really do the job. hdd, cpu, mobo (system) temps all running well within specification. The shoulder screws and grommets in the drive bays work nicely. The fans are easy hook-ups. I really like the legs to support the box at the bottem. The extra usb and audio outs at the top are great.
Cons: could have been more detailed as to the wires from the front and top. I had to get info on-line as to the - color.
Overall Review: If I had to get another case for a build, I would get this one even though I am not a gamer.
Pros: This cpu really rocks! amd replaced the fan/heatsink because the mobo was turning the fan on and then off at boot. the mobo was at fault so replaced it. After using an Athlon 2 ghz for a long time, the speed of this cpu is remarkable. the complaints i have read of others concerning the noise of the fan does not take place in my unit. i set the bios so the fan speed is auto adjusted. The heat sink/fan has been keeping cores' temps at 40c max and the speed was oc'd to 3.8 ghz. I might try stepping it up later, but it really performs nicely the way it is.
Pros: used with amd phenom ii x4. initial start-up the heat sink fan turned on then shut off. amd sent a new hs/fan and it happened again. NewEgg replaced it and all was peaches and cream. i ran it for a couple of days at 3.4ghz then switched the oc up one notch. it has been running great at 3.74 ghz. The board installs nicely in a mid tower. all drivers installed 100% off of the MSI cd. The video is super and it saves buying an extra board. The manual shows where everything goes - no problems whatsoever.
Cons: There isn't any cons at this point. This is my first MSI board.
Pros: This is the best dvd/cd unit i have owned. I have a 64-bit machine and it took right off and recognized everything. The other unit it replaced did not want to read the win 7 64 bit dvd. what can i say, the drawer opens and closes smoothly, it does what it is suppose to.
Cons: I really can't think of any. It installed smoothly - no problems with the screw threads etc..
Pros: I think it is great for the price. For a non-gamer it serves it's purpose better than any other box I have built. I can certainly see the box configuration has changed a lot over 4 years. There is plenty of space and the 3 extra fans are a plus.
Cons: No fan for the rear. I would have paid $12 more to have it supplied.
Pros: good features and even a sata product.
Cons: Worked some of the time until it bombed without trying to use it. Win7 finally went bananas until the unit was disconnected.
Overall Review: all the one egg reviews should be taken serious when looking to purchase.
Pros: It is a somewhat heavy bugger which is one of the references to a good psu is. Shipping was over $9.00, but it was worth it to have a psu that runs flawlessly. I ran it in my machine for about 3.5 mos and then put it in a machine that was having freeze-ups and other problems. That machine ran flawlessly afterwards.
Overall Review: FSP is one that is at the top of the psu list now.
Pros: The unit really dropped the temp of the hdd by around 15°F. It goes together real nicely and has an excellent heat sink and thermal pad that transfers the heat to the fans.
Cons: The hdd mounting screws had to be replaced by ones that worked.
Overall Review: The 7200 RPM and over hard drives need this. It is a big risk without it.
Pros: It is a heavy psu and all of the testing and inspection stickers were on it.
Cons: A lot of problems were caused by this one. First, a Seagate suta hdd had to be replaced. It must have been a weak one to start with. Then the Win7 screen kept freezing up. The PSU was replaced with a known good and functional FSP psu. All ran well after that. The wave forms probably were not smooth.
Overall Review: A quality psu is required in new builds.
Pros: The board offers a little bit more than other mfrs at the same price level. All connecting components function properly except for a harddrive that failed.
Cons: None other than ASUS pays the rebate by a $10.00 Citi bank card so that you have to use it at a store to purchase by. I would have had the cash or credit to my account rather than being bothered with a stupid card.
Pros: After initially going through a bunch of unassociated problems in XP with the USB ports, and what I though was virus related, turned out to be the HDD failing where it could not be recognized with a format request or BIOS. The Seagate replacement was excellent. The SATAII 3GB/s was met and all is well.
Cons: Other than I had to replace it and loose about 2 weeks, it was alright.
Overall Review: Seagate is still the best performing HDD. I ran a WD 500GB SATAII on an old computer with a Seagate IDE drive and the Seagate outperformed the WD in a couple of areas.
Pros: Everything is great. It even has extra's for the front panel that I am not use to. All I can say is that it is of great value.
Pros: It burns like a champ and reads like a champ.
Cons: The audio on this model is zilch. It will play, but you have to crank up the volume to max all the way on everything. The case says 'no audio'
Overall Review: Still a pretty good bang for the buck if you are interested in just burning and reading data. I like to watch dvd's on my computer and listen to music cd's
Pros: Installed easy and easy install of WinXP SP3 with NTFS format. I have two other HDD's in case and this one became my boot drive and is a lot faster. Not bad for an old ASUS A8V7 mobo.
Cons: No drive working light which is understandable since the front light is for the IDE drives on the mobo.
Cons: all I have to say is that my computer requested a shut down after it booted into windows. My 6-year old Enlight PSU was put back in and everything ran fine.
Cons: All I can say is that it doesn't have the pci layout correct as I had to open up the clearance slot to get it to fit. The mobo wouldn't start while it was plugged into the pci so it is not what I would call a good card.
Pros: The legs of the psu read within tolerance and the mobo booted right up. Much better than the other psu I tried which made the green light blink and the mobo didn't boot.
Cons: not enough 12vdc connectors
they should advertise it as a 350W because that is what the total power is.
