Pros: Cools well
Cons: Smaller than expected
Pros: Feels great when pressing. Not loud, good responsiveness.
Overall Review: Broke a key seat setting something heavy on it, my bad. Key still works, just sits gangster (sideways).
Pros: Great price
Overall Review: Keeps this 'sucker' going
Pros: Nice to have Family photos backed up.
Overall Review: Backed up every photo for 6 generations. Will buy another to have at least 3 seperate locations for safe keeping.
Pros: small, leave it in my laptop. Good range.
Overall Review: Internal was no good, and this was an easy and cheap solution.
Pros: Plugged it in and it worked. Extended the range to my sons room and gave him enough connections for his PS4, laptop (plug), and PC.
Overall Review: Works as advertised
Pros: Needed to record over and over my Cable TV sports games on DVD player/recorder.
Overall Review: Perfect and exactly what I expected and as advertised.
Pros: Good size and responsiveness
Cons: Not sure about the corner tabs, but I'm not throwing it like a frisbee, so it should last forever.
Overall Review: Goes well with my Corsair keyboard!
Pros: Small as a laptop, perfect for the entry level item I expected.
Cons: Small keys, somewhat confusing software
Overall Review: Leaves me wanting normal size keys, but exactly what I wanted at the time, exactly what I expected and as advertised.
Pros: Far cry 4
Cons: Not on Steam
Overall Review: I didn't select Far Cry 4 for multi-player anyway. Uplay works great, but all my other games are on Steam.
Pros: Quiet, cool, runs my games as advertised. Low power consumption so no need to upgrade my PSU (600 watts). 8 pin and 6 pin connection. Powered both with my PSU, smooth as silk.
Cons: ATI card had so many issues after newest driver update, I made the switch. 12 years of dedication to ATI is over.
Overall Review: Precision X is an option for setting fans to aggressive (running all the time) for gaming purposes. Thanks to comments I will locate the BIOS switch and try the Slave (Aggressive) setting to avoid running Precision X. Nice to have options. Hello Nvidia!
Cons: Unable to redeem game.
Overall Review: XBOX might be in my future. This will probably be a return if Sony can't get this resolved. Will update
Pros: Love it, was for my daughter for college.
Cons: Developed a 2 inch by 1 inch pressure mark on the screen. My daughter told me she was approached in the college library by an owner of the same laptop when they saw her pressure mark and told her theirs had one as well. I would call that a problem with this laptop.
Overall Review: ASUS could not help me with my sons computer I also purchased here as it was refurbished... I hope we have better luck with this ASUS laptop service.
Pros: Converting vhs to this dvd burner, and works as advertised.
Cons: No problems at all, exactly what I expected.
Overall Review: Another site gave this it's top rating for burners due to cost and simplicity. If that is what you need, can't beat it.
Pros: Liked it when it was working. Asus responded to my review.
Cons: Still not working. Lack of Warranty and Newegg refurbished items policy aren't going to help me it appears. Shop estimates $350 motherboard replacement. I got a second opinion, and they believe it could be the video card, closer to $250. Less than 5 months of ownership and this $450 computer is not the deal I thought it was.
Pros: Can't beat it for the price.
Cons: If you add a larger heat sink and fan on your cpu, the top case fan might get in the way. I had to remove it on one of my builds.
Overall Review: I've used this in two builds now. Very satisfied.
Pros: Exactly what I expected. Stable and well made.
Pros: Good card for price.... see cons
Cons: Fan growled for months. Kept it clean as my Mercedes, and it still died yesterday.
Overall Review: Upside down fan with cheap parts would be my description of this failure. RMA sounds great. Getting the same card with the same problem doesn't. My wife deserves better, so I'll look closer at the reviews next time.
Pros: Performance is incredible. Removable power cord is just what the doctor ordered.
Cons: The left/right click buttons were stiff as heck at first. I played about 20 hours of BF3 before they loosened up. Now I have no complaints.
Overall Review: Best mouse I've ever had after the buttons loosened up.
Pros: Stuck them in my MB after upgrading to Windows 7 and without any further effort I am running smooth. No more "running low on System Memory" messages.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: I will get 8 more GB's to max out my 16GB version of Windows 7. This will make a big difference with my video editing.
Pros: This OS allowed me to add more than the 4 GB's of RAM I had with XP. I am at 8GB's, and plan to max it to 16GB's for editing video.
Overall Review: I loved XP, and have enjoyed exploring the new features in Windows 7. No regrets.
Pros: I've been waiting for a unit with a large fan, and no fancy lights, that keeps my HD's cool. My HD is 5 degrees cooler than in my previous HD mount, and the larger fan is quieter than the 2 small fans that unit had.
Overall Review: I'm so confident that I mounted a second HD in this unit(it holds 3 max).
