Pros: giving a good signal through our apartment. (3bd room)
both 5g and 2.4g signals working good. I'm connecting my pc and ps4 on the 5G and about 4-6 devices on the 2.4G. decent speeds up and down. it's nothing CRAZY but do feel its better than my N-600 router i had.
haven't had to reset it yet have had it up and running for 3 months. install was very easy.
i got it for 20$ and wanted to step up from my n-600 router which was giving me problems.
Cons: I'm not a fan of the all white modern space design.... but i keep it hidden so not a big deal.
Overall Review: for around 30-20$ its a good buy.
Pros: was 40$ on flash sale
oc'd an fx 8320 to 4.4 easily. (will go higher with liquid cooling)
ram imediatly recognized (currectly running 2 8gb hyper fury at 1866)
bios is the best i've used yet. so simple and the mouse cursor use ability is great.
my gpu is a xfx r9 390... no problems with install and no driver/compatibility errors. running great
Cons: only a lil con with the lack on usb 3.0 (i knew this going in and with all the pci and pcie ports on this thing was easy to find a 10$ 3.0 pcie card (added two usb 3.0 to back of case and has a usb 3.0 20pins for front of case cable)
and one more con is minor as well- the sata connectors 2 of them run right inline with the pcie 16 slot.( but im still able to use them with a 90 degree sata cable.) so not a huge con.
Overall Review: for what i paid (and i wouldn't pay full price for this..there are better options) its a fantastic and reliable board.
ocing easy and great pcie 16 port.
easy bios and recognizes ram/ssds/hdds/br drive/ etc... easily.
i must buy for around 40-60$
Pros: install easy. no problem. pc recognized it immediately. i did have to go into bios and make sure its set to 1866 and not 1600. i'm running 2 8gb at the moment and will expand to 2 more sticks latter to get 32 gb total at 1866mhz.
i'm writing this review in retort to other reviews that says "don't buy this ram if you have a am3+ mobo/cpu." i have an AM3+ cpu (8320 oc'd to 4.2ghz) and a ASUS mobo. this ram is running fine with no problems in my setup.
Pros: for the money its a good buy.
For my needs it was perfect because i had an old pc die after 6+years but had an EVGA 8800GT videocard which fit perfectly to this pc and i added 2GB of ram!
Even with out the video card its a good pc but with a decent videocard and extra ram and added 2nd hard drive its a respectable gaming pc!
very pleases also newegg rocks!
p.s. i had to buy separate Power Supply Unit...since the one that comes with this Lenovo is only 280watt...but newegg had a good 530 watt for 39.99 and install was a breez!!!...
i found this a cheaper root instead of buying all separate pieces for a gaming pc.
bought this Lenovo added videocard, ram, and new psu and now its a smoking gaming rig!
Cons: none yet but had under week.
Overall Review: good alternative for buying a cheep all-in-one pc and upgrading with better video card...new psu.
Pros: ran all my recent games: STALKER, FEAR, BIOSHOCK, NFS CARBON, on almost maxed out settings. plays halflife 2 and counterstrike maxed out resolution noproblem!..verry happy with this card.
Cons: none really. for $150 its what i expected and some more.
Overall Review: this is a great card for the money. i didn't wanna spend $300+ on the 8800 just wanted a boost in performance from my old 6600.
once again very pleased. was up n running in about 15-25min.
