Most Favorable Review

does not work on some intel boards

Crucial 2GB DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CT25664BA1339
Crucial 2GB DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CT25664BA1339

Pros: CT25664BA1339a is what is needed on an Intel board DG41TX , this ram works fine on all Intel boards that all the ram to run at true 1333 spped

Cons: DG41TX will not support this ram, needs the version CT25664BA1339a instead of CT25664BA1339, this ram wont run at the slower speed, only at the 1333, need the version with an a at the end to run at 1066.

Most Critical Review

These are not new yet the listing does not say used or re-certified

Dell Inspiron 3000 3277 All-in-One Computer - Intel Core i3 (7th Gen) i3-7130U 2.70 GHz - 8 GB DDR4 SDRAM - 1 TB HDD - 21.5"
Dell Inspiron 3000 3277 All-in-One Computer - Intel Core i3 (7th Gen) i3-7130U 2.70 GHz - 8 GB DDR4 SDRAM - 1 TB HDD - 21.5"

Pros: NOTHING both are not what was sold to me

Cons: Ok I got two of these from you Dell Inspiron 3000 3277 All-in-One Computer - Intel Core i3 (7th Gen) i3-7130U 2.70 GHz - 8 GB DDR4 SDRAM. One of the computers has the hard drive configured completely not the same and only has 4 gigs ram not 8 as advertised.

Overall Review: DO NOT BUY pure scam, sold as new and are not and missing ram!

Best bang for the BUCK!

Crucial MX500 1TB 3D NAND SATA 2.5 Inch Internal SSD, up to 560 MB/s  - CT1000MX500SSD1
Crucial MX500 1TB 3D NAND SATA 2.5 Inch Internal SSD, up to 560 MB/s - CT1000MX500SSD1

Pros: I installed a 1 TB drive in my only 2 year old i7 Toshiba laptop with 16gs ram and a dedicated nVidia card etc. This was a higher end unit. I even upgraded it after I bought it to a hybrid Seagate drive 128 cache yadad, Well it is like going from a Celeron to a i7. This laptop will serve me great now at least 3-5 more years

Cons: Should of done this sooner, prices are still a tab bit hi. Barley a con, maybe like 2-3% slower that a pro series from you know who:)

Nice full feature board

Intel BOXDP67BG LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel BOXDP67BG LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Board has about everything you could need, installs flawless on win7 64 bit pro, supports 1600 ddr3 sata 6.0 yess after updates

Cons: OK in raid the sata 6.0 2 ports ran only at sata 1.5 and the sata 3.0 ports at 1.5, in IDE more ports were at 6.0 and 3.0 mode, a BIOS update resolved this issue to run at faster speeds

Overall Review: Would like to have 8 sata ports, I used an Itel 1156 extreme edition cooling cpu fan, never runs over 33 c on cpu, fast fast board and cpu , running fastest chip at present and speed test is fastest board except for an exteme xeon, best bang for the $$ 40% faster cpu marks than a core i7! WOW !!!

Pros: price

Cons: Should have KNOW better typical WD junk DOA after less than 6 hrs louds click then died

Overall Review: Segate is better, but lately they are not so good either. All CHINA JUNK

were is the L2 Cache

Intel Core i5-655K - Core i5 Clarkdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1156 73W Intel HD Graphics Unlocked Desktop Processor - BX80616I5655K
Intel Core i5-655K - Core i5 Clarkdale Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1156 73W Intel HD Graphics Unlocked Desktop Processor - BX80616I5655K

Pros: Looks like a great CPU for games etc

Cons: Were is the L2 cache on these K processors? Seems like for Business apps it is going to hamper read ahead like a standard I5 and I7 that include L2 Cache support

Overall Review: Can someone please explain why no L2?
