Just simply BLOWN AWAY
Pros: You know, I saw the bad reviews and some good, and I still decided to get a pair (bought off Anazon for $33 shipped NEW). First thing I noticed out the box was the size. Big. Cover your ears completely. Hooked up to my computer and started BF3. HOWLY CWRAP! MAJOR BASS! Explosions, rumbling in the background. I was IN the battle! Jumped on youtube for some videos... If my ears had mouths, they'd be frothing... AND they kept the sound IN the headphones while being as loud as they were! Microphone worked just fine! The construction is plastic so no you can't sit on them and expect to get away with it. But if you treat them good, they WILL last!
Cons: You need to download the software and firmware from the website to take advantage of the latest goodies. BUT the software is FUN to play with. Make you sound like a "Demon" or "Ogre".
Overall Review: I ONLY WISH I had purchased this sooner. The sound TO ME is so good I wish I had more ears to give me a reason to buy another one! Yes...that good. Buy them!
Just...sad...Download CLASSIC SHELL after installation.
Pros: It is windows 7 with a few extra "features and changes" Download Classic Shell after installation to revert back to traditional windows.
Cons: Those "features and changes" were inspired by Lucifer himself... Download Classic Shell after installation to revert back to traditional windows.
Overall Review: The only "pro" to Windows 8 when using it on a desktop is the ability to DOWNLOAD a "program" called Classic Shell online which enables you to turn Windows 8 back to Windows 7 while keeping the faster boot times and disabling that HORRIBLE app tile interface CWRAP!!! I hate Windows 8 design and all. It has gone way off track the tradition of Windows. TO USE WINDOWS 8 traditionally, I recommend downloading a program called CLASSIC SHELL (which is free). It will put a smile on your face...the same one you WERE expectiing when you bought this trash software.
THIS IS THE ANSWER!!!
Pros: Upgraded from a great working Phenom II x4 965 that did its job well. This upgrade was excellent! Only took 10 minutes from powerdown to startup. WEI boosted up from 7.4 7.5 7.9 7.9 7.3 to 7.8 7.8 7.9 7.9 7.3. Also enabled memory to run at 1866 from 1600 which the Phenom would only support. This thing is FAST. Worth every penny.
Cons: Bought it in a bundle to get a discount of 20 bucks off. Wish this was sold at a base price of 199 instead of the 219. So not really much of a savings...
Overall Review: The fan is smaller than what the phenom stock fan was. I don't use them anyways but just wanted to point that out. Also the "spam can" it comes in is still neato! Buy this if you don't want to wait for 3rd Gen FX core. I really think this IS what the original 8150 should have been.
AOC E2243FWK works for me!
Pros: Didn't buy from Newegg, first of all. I purchase a display model from a local store needing something that would replace my wonder Viewsonic that I had sold a while back. This AOC is great. Not as good as the Viewsonic, but this one has some great features. EXTREMELY THIN screne and incredibly light-weight. the base is small and sits back behind the scene, giving you enough deskspace for everything else. Bottons are all touch technology located on the base as well. It supports both VGA and DVI.
Cons: The screne sits forward from the base causing you to lose about a inch or so of deskspace from the wall, if your up against a wall. The screen also cannot be mounted. Its so thin they didn't provide screw holes in the back. Overall design prevents mounting altogether (power and video cables are located in the base).
Overall Review: I'm giving it a 4 because the picture is wonderful. I only regret choosing this monitor because I just need ANY monitor. It's no piece of cwrap so don't think its absolute trash. It gets the job done.
BEST DVD BURNER EVER!!!
Pros: I've purchased about 5 or 6 of these burners in the past and they are GREAT!!! Just Plug-n-play! THATS IT!
Cons: Don't come with interchangeable faceplates based on your case's color. These are Sata...so no IDE doesn't work...no convertors included
Overall Review: Buy it and shut up! AWESOME!
Such a good case, I had to have it AGAIN!!!
Pros: Outstanding case. Owned it once before and when I sold off that rig and began another, I couldn't help but get another one! Especially it being $25 after rebate, this case is OUTSTANDING. Easy locking bays for drives, 6 locations for 120mm fans (1 covered by PSU), 1 built-in fan in front, wide enough to fit a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ CPU cooler,
Cons: Wish it was one more 5.25 dvd bay taller so I could place a fan in the front to draw more air in (not that its a con). It has more than addiquate airflow. Also hiding wires behind the MB mounting plate is tight so either live with it or live without it.
Overall Review: Just a well constructed case. Has just tones of room and options to choose from when setting up a push-pull air system or watercooling. Weither its on sale or not, its worth every cent!
