Most Favorable Review

lived with Windows 8.1 for the first time.

Zotac ZBOX-BI320-U-W2 Desktop PC Celeron 2957U (1.40GHz) 2GB DDR3 64GB mSATA SSD Windows 8.1 with Bing, 64-bit
Zotac ZBOX-BI320-U-W2 Desktop PC Celeron 2957U (1.40GHz) 2GB DDR3 64GB mSATA SSD Windows 8.1 with Bing, 64-bit

Pros: Came with some memory and a 64gb SSD. I think the form factor and vertical stand is great. Low noise after adjusting in fan settings in Bios. Seems pretty quick with a 500gb SSD and Win 8.1 or Win 7. It was kind of cool to get a fully working PC (with OS) for such a low price.

Cons: I tried to warm up to windows 8.1 for a while, but it seems like a car that has had features removed I like and new features added that I don't care about. I will take a shot at Win 10 and see if they put WMC back in so my Homerun HDTV can stream and record.

Overall Review: If I had to do it over, I would probably purchase the barebones version at Newegg Zotac ZBOX-BI320-U Intel HD Graphics Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone System. I would wait and get it on sale.

Most Critical Review

Crossfire. Really?

MSI MSI Gaming A88XM GAMING FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI MSI Gaming A88XM GAMING FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I have done a Hybrid Crossfire with the APU, A10 7850K. I used a Gigabyte Radeon R7 250 OC (GV-R725OC-1GI). It works. It would have been nice to have the option of eventually Crossfiring two discreet GPUs, but that is not possible with this board. See other reviewer that states the same.

Cons: "PCI-Express 3.0 slots, perfectly aligned and with enough space for an optimal airflow when using multiple graphics cards." That is a quote from MSI's site. It is simply not true. Lower PCI-Express 3.0 slot will not even take a true single slot card. Yes, I had one to try. It has nothing to do with the case having room. The slot is too close to the USB 3.0 and other connections directly below the slot. Zoom in on the board and you can see it for your self.

I purchased three of these!

Pros: Well, my Grandkids and I are enjoying these great sounding headphones! The 50mm drivers really put out high quality sound. They are great for kicking back and listening to your favorite music 🎶. The kids can talk to each other while playing the same game on different PCS.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I would buy these again in a heartbeat. They are comfortable and adjustable. I did purchase three pair already, so I'm good for a while. Thank you!

First time purchasing RGB Memory!

CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro SL 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model CMH16GX4M2E3200C16
CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro SL 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model CMH16GX4M2E3200C16

Pros: I usually purchase shorter memory due to the usual air cooling I use. I am very satisfied with this Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro SL. It's actually not as tall as some I've seen. Rain is my favorite setting on the RGB. You can actually turn the RGB off if your in the mood. The App is easy to use.

Cons: I have no cons.

Overall Review: I would recommend this memory. With XMP setting you get 3200. Try the Rain setting on the RGB. It's actually kind of relaxing. I purchased two sets of these and I'm satisfied.

Love the look!

Pros: I found them comfortable and easy to use. Hint: You need to hold the pairing button down until the light keeps flashing quickly between red and blue to pair. For the money I paid, they were a great deal.

Cons: They sound good with the 40mm drivers, but would have been even better with 50mm drivers.

Overall Review: I would recommend these if you get them on sale.

Very good price on this Micro ATX case.

Montech Flyer Micro ATX Computer Gaming Case/ High-Airflow, Acrylic Side Panel, Pre-Installed 2 x 120mm Fan, Hairline Surface Front Panel, RGB LED Shining Strip/ Micro ATX, Mini-ITX/ Black

Pros: I built a 2970wx Threadripper build out of this. Hint: I was able to get my 165mm high cooler in it by using nylon washers under the corners of the acrylic panel for standoffs. I had the longer screws. Looks 👍 The simple led light button works great. The case had room for good cable management. I also was able to get a Corsair RM 850x Gold (a longer PSU) in with no problem. It was nice to get back to buliding a little bit.

Cons: Nothing on the case. I wish the price of newer graphic cards would go done. I imagine others like me just quit building do to cost.

Overall Review: Well, now that you ask...I have already ordered another one of these cases.

I contacted the manufacturer, but ended up solving the problem myself.

I am satisfied with the seller and my purchase.

Cloning

So far I have only cloned two SSD's and this was fast and easy as expected. I will update my review if any problems occur. Thanks.
