Pros: - Great price- Huge- ZERO dead pixels out of 8,294,400 of them, not bad- Decent response time
Cons: - The cable management in the back is cramped if you're running both HDMI and DisplayPort.- No VESA mounting- Terrible viewing angle- The bottom has a strange haze as if the backlight is slightly occluded. It doesn't end sharply, it fades off.- Expect to calibrate
Overall Review: - Great price point to break into curved 4K in the home office.- Great general purpose monitor for the price.- Not amazing for gaming, but definitely good enough to play on.
Pros: - Good length- Quality connectors
Cons: - Can't be used to jump start cars
Overall Review: - Would recommend- Used it to connect my Samsung UR59C, worked like a charm.
Pros: - Quiet- Good Flow- Slim
Cons: - None
Overall Review: A great pack fans for the price
Pros: - Much larger than I thought it was
- Smooth and perfect slide feel for my Logitech MX Master 2S.
Cons: - Cannot be used as a cutting board...
Overall Review: Fit and finish is good. It seems like it's a quality product so far.
Pros: - Amazing performance.
- Amazing fit and finish.
- Amazing clearance for computer internals.
- Mounting system is dummy proof.
- Generally silent even under full system load.
- Gorgeous engineering.
- Clear installation instructions.
Cons: - Does not grant wishes...
Overall Review: The performance of this cooler is nothing short of amazing. I upgraded my i7-10700F from the stock Intel cooler and was blown away by the results. Under a full 16 thread system load, the stock cooler was not only obnoxiously lour, it would also fail to adequately cool the CPU immediately. The CPU would instantly hit 100ºc in all cores and throttle down to 3ghz in all cores while still dancing around the 100ºc mark. After the install, I ran a 1 hour burn in and the CPU never surpassed the 75ºc mark in any core and never dipped below the max 4.6ghz.
Pros: Great power delivery, great layout, great audio, great cooling, great features. Also, kudos to the 4 SATA cables thrown in, I needed them all lol.
Cons: The IO cover on my particular motherboard was a little bent and/or crooked. Also, the cardboard insert that the motherboard rests on inside the box was torn in a strange fashion. Not sure why that was allowed out of the factory like that, but after bending the IO panel back into shape, I got everything lined up nicely and installation was a breeze.
Overall Review: I would buy this motherboard again.
Pros: Good price, nice features and enough combinations of modular cables to power most configurations.
Cons: The main ATX power cable has an abundance of heat shrink on it and makes it difficult to wire things up cleanly. It feels bulky and over-wrapped. My photos show the extent of the problem.
Overall Review: I would buy this PSU again.
Pros: No onboard GPU and a small price reduction. Includes a basic cooler.
Cons: The cooler that comes with the processor is good for moderate use, but fails to provide adequate cooling if you're doing any long-term, heavy calculations or gaming.
Overall Review: Great processor, great price, nice cost savings. I would buy again.
Pros: Installs easy, small heat sinks for tight fitting builds and runs at it's claimed 3600mhz speed when you use an XMP profile.
Overall Review: I would buy this memory again.
Pros: Much faster than a SATA III SSD.
Overall Review: I would purchase another one of these to replace my SATA III SSD's.
Pros: Quality. Every surface feels high quality. The coating they used on the metal is tough and it feels premium. I love that there are no rough edges in this case. Usually in budget cases you find rough or even sharp edges. There is enough room to run cables in an intelligent fashion, and where their cable management fails, there are plenty spots to anchor zip-ties.
Cons: The hard drive cage and the power supply can be cumbersome to work with, but in Corsair's defense, a mid size case just doesn't allow much room. I had to move my hard drive cage to the secondary position to fit my Corsair RM 550x PSU (which isn't huge). The modular plugs were a pain to reach with the cage in place, but again, in Corsair's defense. This is more of a space problem than a design problem.
Overall Review: Quality case at a great price. Not much else to say.
Pros: - Everything is working.
- Computer was generally clean.
- Internal components were all in good condition.
- Included an MSI brand Geforce GTX 1060, not some off brand trash.
- Quality PSU and CPU cooler.
- Case fans are all quiet and obviously not extremely old.
Cons: - The product description stated 2x 500GB hard drives. A single 1TB was what was actually included. I was counting on using one of the extra drives as a backup drive for another computer.
- Case has a large dent in it that did not occur during shipping. The bright side is that it does not encroach on any internals.
- Case is a little cramped.
- Slow to leave their facility due to 4th of July. (understandable)
- Keyboard and mouse are not usable. Keyboard space bar is stuck down and keys barely engage. Mouse is some random $2 off-brand garbage Luckily I never intended to use them so they went directly in the trash.
- Cables were in the way of the video card cooler and not run in any sort of manner with care. Just plugged in and the case was closed.
Overall Review: - Very recommended! Although I doubt the specs would be exact for other people as these refurbished machines are usually hodge-podged together with random components.
