Pros: Great card - bought it when all others were sold out.
Cons: Slight coil whine once in a while. I took a gamble and was hoping this card wouldn't have it, but with my (currently open) case I can hear it.
Pros: It does work with MCE....
Cons: Does NOT work with vista x64 running XBMC. I was really hoping it would, but i gave up and bought a DiNovo Mini.
Pros: Silent. This is the first 'name brand' PSU I've ever owned. I decided to not use one that came with the case when I built my uber machine last year, and I have no regrets. This PSU is awesome.
Cons: It doesn't make toast in the morning.
Pros: EXTREMELY FAST! They weren't lying. The last drive I had was like snail mail compared to this. Comes with a rubber case holder which feels nice.
Cons: The plastic it comes in requires scissors to remove. Or a lot of biting. Plan on having scissors close by, you might cut your mouth.
Pros: This stuff is great- do NOT make a computer without buying a tube of this.
I always remove the old thermal paste that comes stock with some fans with a paper towel and put this stuff on. It, in my opinion, is the best thermal paste you can buy. Its cheap too!
Cons: It's inexpensive. Oh wait. That isn't a bad thing.
Overall Review: They should just put this stuff stock on heat sinks and not use the junk they do.
Pros: It's an awesome board really. Lots of features.
Cons: Alright this is the reason I'm writing a reveiw today. If you're tearing your hair out because your computer randomly crashes and you keep getting random errors/blue screens this is the post for you. I was getting freezes even while editing the BIOS and I found out why after a ton of research. The solution is simple.
IN THE BIOS, DISABLE THE FOLLOWING IF YOU GET CRASHES:
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)
CPU EIST Function
THEY ARE UNDER THE ADVANCED SETTINGS.
I really hope this is useful to someone, it messed me up for a long time and if I had known this I could have saved hours upon hours of memory tests, cpu tests, etc.
Overall Review: Just wish those two options were disabled by default.
4/5 eggs ebcause of the problems, still a really nice board, but it dropped an egg because of this issue.
Pros: High resolution, very bright, and BIG. For $190 you can't go wrong. This is my first LCD and I am 100% happy with it. No dead pixels. No external power source is a big plus too. It uses a normal computer/monitor power cord and that's it.
Cons: I was used to CRT's so going from that to this LCD took about a day to get used to. I kept thinking the color was off on WoW, but I was just seeing the game how it was meant to be played..lol.
Overall Review: No DVI cable, I ordered one as a lot of others here did as well. Buttons on the side was annoying the first day when I was messing with contrast, but after that I haven't touched them again, and am happy they are not on the front, much more sleek.
Pros: Put this HDD in a softmodded Xbox and it works great. No problems at all.
Overall Review: It locks too.
Pros: This flash drive works FINE. If anyone says it's slow they must be trying to do two things at once with it. I'm currently using it to transfer T.V. shows back and forth to work.
Cons: I shook it when I first got it and something inside rattle daround, but I think it may have just been the retractable USB thing. It's worked fine so it obviously isnt an issue.
Overall Review: I like the blue LED, although in everything I put it in it seems like it's facing the wrong way.
Pros: Burns fast, haven't had any DVD not work yet.
Cons: I've had no problems with it yet.
