Most Favorable Review

Works perfectly with RYZEN/7th Gen A-series/Athlon chips

G.SKILL Value 8GB DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Intel X299 / Z270 / Z170 / X99 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C17S-8GNT
G.SKILL Value 8GB DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Intel X299 / Z270 / Z170 / X99 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C17S-8GNT

Pros: - 2400mhz so it is very fast. - Black PCB. - Works perfect on AM4 motherboards. - CHEAP.

Cons: - No heat spreader, but you really don't need one.

Overall Review: If you are going for a budget build and need fast RAM, this choice is perfect! I would not recommend it if you are going to have a side panel window, but for a business computer that needs performance on the cheap, this is perfect! I am using an A8-9600 APU with 2GB of vRAM to the GPU portion of the APU. It does make a difference and that 2400mhz speed really helps a lot with performance. I got a score of 30 fps in cinebench with no OC, that is running the APU at 900mhz (GPU portion again). I got around 209 for CPU, but that is because of the poor IPC's of the Bristol Ridge architecture (one core per frame). You really need 8GB of RAM to do anything nowadays and having it at this price point is really nice!

Don't buy. Terrible Value.

MSI Radeon R7 250 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R7 250 2GD3 OC
MSI Radeon R7 250 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R7 250 2GD3 OC

Pros: - MAX OC is 1075mhz on the GPU and 950mhz on the RAM. 70% fan speed all the time and the card works okay.

Cons: - Not OLAND. That means you cannot dual graphics this card.

Overall Review: Don't buy this. I realize that 512 stream cores looks nice at this price, but they are Cape Verde cores, meaning that you cannot dual graphics this with any A-series chip. If you really want to dual graphic, buy the R7 240 OLAND version. In this day in age, you shouldn't be buying this. Buy a GTX 1050, which will blow this card away. This card is a mess. The R7 250 has two different architectures used and a different amount of stream cores per architecture. Just stay away from it, trust me.

Works perfectly

TP-LINK TL-WN823N Wireless N300 Mini USB Adapter, 300 Mbps, w/ WPS Button, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 10 (32-bit & 64-bit)
TP-LINK TL-WN823N Wireless N300 Mini USB Adapter, 300 Mbps, w/ WPS Button, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 10 (32-bit & 64-bit)

Pros: - It works for pretty good distances, given the size I'm surprised at how well it does.

Cons: - none

Overall Review: For the people complaining about the speeds of this guy, if you have an internet plan that is slower than 300Mbps, then of course you won't get 30Mbps of speed. You will only get close to that speed if you are within 15 yards of the router and have another computer with the same card and are doing file transfers with them. That is what the 300Mbps is for. If you still have troubles, try plugging it into a dedicated USB drive, not a dongle or hub. If you still have issues, make sure Windows is set not to shut it off and that you have the bandwidth maxed in device manager. Once you do that, it works as marketed.

Cheap and good!

Canon PIXMA MG3022 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer, 8 ipm Black, 4800x600 Color, - Print, Copy, Scan
Canon PIXMA MG3022 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer, 8 ipm Black, 4800x600 Color, - Print, Copy, Scan

Pros: - It is truly wireless, there is no USB cable included or needed. - It prints and scans perfectly, not much more you can say.

Cons: - The download for the drivers takes forever. It took me half an hour just to set up the software. I think that the driver should be included on the disk so that it can install and then you can update the driver as needed.

Overall Review: It's a printer. It does the job well. Not much more you can say.

Works great!

Prudent Way PWI-INT-CR07 All in One Internal Card Reader
Prudent Way PWI-INT-CR07 All in One Internal Card Reader

Pros: - Does what it is supposed to do, read all my cards! - Two faces to choose from, black or silver

Cons: - The power light stays on when you shut down the system

Overall Review: It comes with six screws, but you can only use four in most cases (sorry for the pun). As a cost-saving measure for this company, I would include four screws. It would be cool if they made a brushed aluminum-like face so that it blends a lot better. This seems like something that should be included in most cases made. It works great!

Ignore the ones that complain about the USB 2.0

ROSEWILL, Aesthetic Finish, 90mm Fan pre-installed, Mini Tower Computer Case with 400W Power Supply - R521-M
ROSEWILL, Aesthetic Finish, 90mm Fan pre-installed, Mini Tower Computer Case with 400W Power Supply - R521-M

Pros: - USB 3.0 - GREAT power supply (I've had mine for over three years and it still runs perfectly, and that is after I upgraded my PC as well) - CD/DVD drive space (becoming a rare commodity) - The included fan works great (again three years) - Brushed look is very nice

Cons: - It is a fingerprint magnet - Side panel warps, making it hard to put on sometimes - Drive mounts are a little flimsy, but they do the job - No cable management room

Overall Review: For the people complaining about no USB 2.0, buy a motherboard that has USB 3.0. They cost the same as any other motherboard. If, for some odd reason, you want a USB 2.0, but the Prudent Way PWI-INT-CR07 All in One Internal Card Reader, which not only has USB 2.0, but SD, MicroSD, MMC, etc. For the people complaining about Motherboard space, again you are wrong. You probably installed the motherboard improperly because I have now owned two of these and never once had a problem with any micro-ATX board, or any other board for that matter. If this case came without the PSU, it would be probably around $20-25. I would recommend making a version without the PSU for the people who have a power supply already and just need a case. I'm not saying the built-in one is bad, becuase it isn't, it is very good. I would recommend getting this case if you need a decent PSU and case to save a buck or two for a CPU/GPU or even RAM.

Doesn't get the job done on time at all.

Do not buy from them. I was originally told my order would take 8-15 days and now they say 15-20 days after 10 days lapsed. They get the product through packaging and that is about it. They email pretty fast as well.
