To the idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about!
Pros: Does what IT'S suppose to!
Cons: Dumb people writing bad reviews for good products! People who think they know all about computers and this and that, when to don't even have a clue! Come on here people!
Overall Review: To the dolt, you just go ahead and run plain tap water into your system and see how much that works for you in a month or two!!! :) Might smell a little (moldy), or maybe clog things up a little, or a never ending supply of air bubbles! Grow a brain! Of course our computers aren't going below 0c! The whole point of this product is to keep things running smoothly, and CLEAN!!!
Amazing Card! Powerful and quiet!
Pros: Super fast card!!
Overall Review: This card is really impressive! Upgrading from a RX6700XT to the 6800XT and its a major difference! Time Spy scores reaching almost 21,000. Im getting around 20,760 with an i9 9900k at 5.0ghz. Thats plenty for me! Very heavy and robust card. Great quality and the prices are finally starting to come down! :)
Not bad for a Sony
Pros: Really fast load times. If you set it up to do so. A ton of extra online features! Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, YouTube and on and on and on... :) Plays videos (mp4's, mpgs, mov's, and more great!) Simply amazing SD DVD playback! All my DVD's look amazing now, I though my upconvert DVD made them look good, but this is simply awesome compared to the Sony Upconvert DVD player. It also does pictures pretty good. A little slow if you want to go fast though the pictures.
Cons: Well, at first I was very dissapointed with the Netflix streaming! (Like everyone else it seems!!) I have been streaming on the Wii for months now and never had a problem. Once I started to stream Netflix on the Sony BDP-S570 I ran into load problems right away! It has nothing to do with the speed of my internet on my end as a previous reviewer stated. I have on average 25-30 Mbps download and around 3-6Mbps upload. PLENTY fast enough for any HD streaming on Netflix!
Overall Review: But after some digging and found another reviewer stating it was his router and enabling the WMM feature I had to look into it. I am using a Linksys router model WRT54GS, and had to go the gaming tab, and to the QoS (Quality of Service) sub tab and enable WMM and enter my Blu-Ray's MAC address, and set it to Highest Priority. And all seems a lot better now. It loads a lot farther ahead than it used to and have not had any loading issues since. (Fingers Crossed) :) So a big THANK YOU, to the person who mentioned the WMM issue. A quick google search and all is better now!! So any one out there reading this review, check into if your router is capable of enabling the WMM feature.. :) Helps a ton!!!!
Awesome TV! Great Price!
Pros: This is a great TV!!!! Don't believe the previous review! Some people just don't know what they are talking about! Hey "Bend Over"! Your an idot! This is a LCD TV! They don't have bulbs or color wheels!! Its not a DLP, and you have an average understanding! HA!!! Think before placing a review!!!! Some people these days...
Cons: Absolutely none!!!!
Best of the 939 era!
Pros: Simply the best 939 out there, on par with the FX-60! Just this CPU alone has increased my FPS in Crysis by 12! And that is coming from a overclocked FX-55 running at 2.8ghz! My system specs are as follows; eVGA 8800GTS 320mb, 2 gigs XMS-3200 DDR400 512x4, AsRock Dual-VSTA 939 motherboard, 500w PSU. I ran the benchmarks inside the Bin32 folder of the Crysis game directory on all HIGH settings and averaged around 33.5 CPU score, and 35.9 for the GPU score. Compared to 22.7 CPU, 26.8 GPU with the old FX-55!
Cons: Expensive, but it does make your 939 system last just that much longer. This on synthetic bench marks beats some of the Core 2 Duo's or is on par with them! :)
Overall Review: Not many games take advantage of Dual Core yet, but if you like Crysis, it will reward you going from single core to dual core! :) It's worth the extra $$$. So do yourself a favor if you like Crysis game, go into the game change all settings to high and with resolution to 1280x1024, and run the benchmarks in the Bin32 folder and see what you get!
Not bad, Not bad at all! :)
Pros: Modular?! HA?-I Guess. Quiet!! You can not hear this running! Does get a little warm inside. Good solid 12v rails! Sweet Amperage! Not bad! Running strong now for a couple months...
Cons: Price! I would not get a 500 watt anymore now days! Minimum 750. And really what is the point of modular? When you have multiple hard drives, two optical drives, floppy (yeah yeah, don't laugh!), fan controllers, PCI-e video cards requiring power and on and on. You need to plug in everything anyway! So whats the point? Yes I know it's for the people that don't have a lot of things to plug in, but who is that anymore...
Overall Review: It is a very very solid PSU, but like I said I would not spend the $ on this any more! Just get something stronger and not modular. It is nice to be able to unplug-off the PSU and run the cords around/behind things to tidy up the case a little! My specs; yes its a little old! CPU - FX-57 2.8ghz, MB - Asrock 939 Dual VSTA, Video - EVGA 8800GTS 320mb, 2gigs XMS 3200 dual channel, Two HD's, Two Optical DVD-R's, Titan water cooling, about 6 fans (yes I am a cooling nut! :)), ...
