Most Critical Review

I'm done with Logi wireless

Logitech Recertified 981-000541 G230 Circumaural Gaming Headset
Logitech Recertified 981-000541 G230 Circumaural Gaming Headset

Pros: -Lasted while broken -Strangely long range

Cons: -Bad construction -Bad engineering -Bad battery life -Bad bloatware -Costly

Overall Review: I've purchased 2, logitech replaced them both in warranty. These were a 2010s std wireless headphone Stop the madness, buy a wired headphone and stop worrying about connections dying and battery life/death.

Great kit

53 Pcs Assorted Bits Screwdriver Tool Kit in Case w/ Extension Bars & Tweezers

Pros: -Cheap -Tons of bits -Great tweezers

Cons: -Poor metal quality (but we aren't doing woodworking here) -The case is a bit flimsy

Overall Review: Great little set. I use this constantly. The case broke after @ 1 year of use. The bits have not rounded over, but watch your torque.

Stability problems.

PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX 580 8GBD5-3DHDV2/OC
PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX 580 8GBD5-3DHDV2/OC

Pros: -Cheap

Cons: -PowerColor -Can't run at expected res at higher FPS -Not a pro gaming card -Poor cooling

Overall Review: Cheap throwaway card. If you need to save coin, and want to game at 2014 FPS and res, this is for you. Not pro in any way.

Clocking probs

Team T-Force DARK Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TDPGD416G3200HC14ADC01
Team T-Force DARK Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TDPGD416G3200HC14ADC01

Pros: -Cheap -BIOS allowed clocking at freq (motherboard= B450 Tomahawk) -no LEDs

Cons: -Mem went completely unstable and had to lower frequency -NOT an overclocking component.

Overall Review: The above tells the tale. You can't overclock with this memory. Either the mfg is not testing at stated speeds or some other shenanigans. It is cheap, however.

It's Win10- but at least the transaction went well

Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, DVD - OEM
Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, DVD - OEM

Pros: -My code worked -No probs with activation

Cons: -It's Win10 -Spies constantly -Every update is more spying -Price was too high

Overall Review: It's Win10. I knew what I was buying and the code/activation worked fine. Props to sales for that. I refuse to give anything MS a 5 star rating. Also, Unknown to me, Windows goes on sale for holidays. Wait for a sale...
