Most Favorable Review

Seems like a winner

Lenovo Ultra-thin Notebook IdeaPad S405 (59351953) AMD A6-Series A6-4455M (2.10GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7500G 14.0" Windows 8
Lenovo Ultra-thin Notebook IdeaPad S405 (59351953) AMD A6-Series A6-4455M (2.10GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7500G 14.0" Windows 8

Pros: Thin, light, decent speed. Battery holds up very well.

Cons: Windows 8. No CD/DVD-ROM, but I knew this going in. The monitor when opening and closing feels easy to break, it is really thin, so don't go whipping this thing open full force.

Overall Review: As long as you exercise normal caution as one should with any laptop/notebook you should be fine. I do not like Windows 8, so to each his own. I feel it would have been better with Windows 7, but this is my own preference.

Garbage PSU

Diablotek PHD Series PHD450 450 W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply
Diablotek PHD Series PHD450 450 W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply

Pros: NONE, AT ALL. One egg is too much, had to though. Doorstop maybe? DOA now must pay to send back what had free shipping. Get a PSU from a real company.

Cons: I received this today at 3pm, I started building after work at 8pm. Checked the rear I/O switch cables and nothing. Fan doesn't spin, nothing. Not NewEggs fault, it happens. However I bought this for the price and FREE SHIPPING, now I have to PAY to send it back. Next time I'll buy local, beats waiting 3 days to get it, find out its dead send it back wait another 3-4 days for them to say its bad and send a replacement

Overall Review: I am very upset with Diablotek. I honestly have never gotten a DOA PSU from thermaltake or corsair. I was debating on a corsair, decided on this PSU from the reviews and price point. BIG mistake should of spent the other 10-15 bucks and went with one from above. Now I have to wait another week or so to get a friends PC going. Nothing like seeing a friends face after you help him build a PC and when he pushes the button and NOTHING happens.

Its corsair.....

CORSAIR CX Series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
CORSAIR CX Series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply

Pros: Its Corsair...enough said. Good quality, you can feel it when you lift the box that it isn't cheaply made.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Its a small PSU at 430W depending on your needs. The system it went into isn't expecting a lot of upgrading to be done in the way of dedicated graphics and such. If your going to do this try to plan ahead and invest a few more dollars. Otherwise get this PSU, I have never had a bad one from Corsair.

Seems to be quality

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: Seems pretty good for a PSU in this price range. Has blue LED kinda cool.

Cons: None so far, wasn't DOA like Diablotek

Overall Review: This is not a "full modular" PSU so make sure you take that into consideration. The connectors on this item are not standard modular PSU 6 pin connectors. Not a con just a heads up, dont go buying this if your attempting to use an cables you have from outher PSUs just laying around.

It worked

Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT2G3D1608DE1TX0
Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLE2KIT2G3D1608DE1TX0

Pros: It worked, didn't eat a whole in the wallet.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Used in a budget PC, so far so good. Does what RAM is supposed to do. It isn't pretty or the fastest stuff on the market but fits it's intended purpose.

It worked so far...

ECS A960M-M2 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ECS A960M-M2 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Price.

Cons: On board adapters. Only one PCI-e that is worth anything. but its a mATX.

Overall Review: I build a budget "entertainment" PC for my daughter. The build went together well. Used a WD HHD, Corsair PSU, some crucial RAM, LG DVD burner and a sapphire 6770. No it isn't a monster but will fit her needs for awhile as its mainly used for browsing the web and light media viewing. With all the rebates including the one I got on this MB I built a decent PC for about $350 bucks, I cant complain. Hopefully I don't experience the horror stories like others have.
