Most Favorable Review

Old but not done yet

AMD Athlon II X3 450 - Athlon II X3 Rana Triple-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 95W Desktop Processor - ADX450WFGMBOX
AMD Athlon II X3 450 - Athlon II X3 Rana Triple-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 95W Desktop Processor - ADX450WFGMBOX

Pros: Runs all the productivity s/w I have without a hiccup.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Not used for gaming but, those idle moments allow for some play with a couple of old favorites and this guy still kicks it !

Most Critical Review

WhatIdoWrong

SAMSUNG 4 Camera+4 Channel 250GB DVR MPEG4 Compression Surveillance Kit (SHR-1041K)
SAMSUNG 4 Camera+4 Channel 250GB DVR MPEG4 Compression Surveillance Kit (SHR-1041K)

Pros: Easy setup and camera install. Decent playback at recommended settings.

Cons: I'm not certain where the positive reviewers got their docs but, I couldn't find anything in them to tell me how to download from the h/d to my pc and don't even bother with the poor excuse for product support. In my business I have had to supply playback on 2 occasions to law enforcement. Even these guys had to go to Radio Shack for a work-around.\ You get your money's worth with this but, not much more.

SSweet !

SanDisk Ultra 2.5" 120GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDH-120G-G25
SanDisk Ultra 2.5" 120GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDH-120G-G25

Pros: Small size meant I could actually prop it inside my tower where it could receive air flow from case fans and not use an install slot. Used as OS only and load/reboot times are super fast. Looking for more to replace another storage hd.

Cons: Totally none.

Overall Review: Reports indicate these guys only last 5 years or so under conventional use but, I don't get much more than that from platter drives.

Solid Price to Performance

AMD Athlon II X2 250 - Athlon II X2 Regor Dual-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 65W Desktop Processor - ADX250OCGMBOX
AMD Athlon II X2 250 - Athlon II X2 Regor Dual-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 65W Desktop Processor - ADX250OCGMBOX

Pros: Great little starter chip for low end gamer build. Guy that bought this was upgrading from P4 !! A little tight on the purse so, maybe this will entice him to open up a little more.

Cons: None

Overall Review: As a hobby builder, I don't really get too involved with the latest bleeding edge so, I was pretty certain this setup would sell and make a start towards introducing the buyer to a better world. Looking really good so far. <lol>

Update to Previous review

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch

Pros: Fair turn-around for RMA. PSU replacement still operating in totally new system I had to purchase to replace the build that got destroyed when the first PSU from Raidmax fried the mobo, cpu and memory.

Cons: Biggest con reserved for the idiot who failed to perform proper research before buying this PSU, namely, myself. I'd love to meet the other idiot who did the quality control on the unit I received so I could gift him/her with my fried components and the bill to replace them.

Overall Review: Over all, I suppose this really isn't a totally bad PSU since, it's been operating without a hiccup for the past 3 months but, I absolutely would not buy another PSU nor recommend one from Raidmax in the future after reading reviews across the web regarding their quality.

Sweet little card

Pros: Great card for online work, even if a bit slow at most online game sites it displays what the buyer wanted faster, better than his old onboard and what he's happy with, I'm happy as well. All around best buck banger out there for low end builds.

Cons: So far, none at all.

Overall Review: While I'm a simple hobby builder, this sale made my day for all around appreciation and the graphics played an important part making the sale and making the friend happy.
