As Usual Sceptre Quality
Pros: For the price, the largest LCD I could find. Have had four Sceptre TVs, none of which had a single problem. Great brand for the money.
Cons: Would have liked 1080p but using it as a bedroom TV, I'm not planning on watching Blu-Ray on this unit. I plan to hook up a Blu-Ray player to it just to see what the difference is between 720 and 1080 but again I plan to use this to watch HD TV late at night only. Sound is pretty weak but I would expect that from small speakers on any LCD TV. Pair it up with a cheap soundbar and you'll be happy.
Overall Review: Not sure where Sceptre came from, but between NewEgg and Costco these units are incredible bargains. Granted if I looked at the picture side-by-side a double the price name brand there might be a visible difference but not when you just hook it up and enjoy it.
Sweet deal but amazing they are still selling these 2 years after I bought mine.
Pros: Cheap, good name, worked ok for awhile.
Cons: Died after about 1.5 years, which I guess is somewhat OK, but makes me wonder why it was refurbished in the first place.
Overall Review: Think I won't buy refurbished hard drives anymore.
Doesn't work with Vista 64 bit
Pros: Guess it would be fine running a 32 bit system, didn't try that as I bought it to run 64 bit Vista
Cons: Can't believe AMD and NewEgg can actually in good faith sell a processors with none problems. This unit is no way, no how a 64 bit CPU.
Overall Review: I should have read the reviews before ordering but saw the "deal" on dealnews and had been looking for a quad core. Guess you get what you pay for. NewEgg did a great RMA process but thought I should have gotten the 9650 in exchange for all of my trouble.
