Pros: Has a repair cycle to bring back bad cells
Cons: Auto control, would be nice to be able to select all the different modes of operation.
Overall Review: Does what it says it'll do, not bad for the cost.
Pros: Price was great.
Cons: Comes ready to put together but the instructions that came with it are the worst ever seen, if your a mechanically minded person you will have a hard time putting it all together.
Overall Review: The unit once together works great vs the cost!
Pros: Item was exactly as described
Cons: Arrived damaged after 3 weeks
Overall Review: Seller issued full refund
Pros: 16 gig 1600mhz ram, a great value at this price.
Overall Review: Would buy again if needed.
Pros: it's a used chip and works great.
Cons: The pictures shown makes one believe it comes with a fan, since it displays the box, in the chip's specs it says comes with fan but also say it doesn't Why not just show a picture of the chip and then there would be no misunderstanding.
Overall Review: It's a good bargain for an old chip if you still need to get one that works!
Pros: Not sure what they've done to this software, once the best out there, now it's firewall aggressive! Seems everything is blocked, interactive mode use to give you the ability to pick and choose what to block, not any more! I am constantly fighting this firewall unblocking simple items like Asus Update, samasung magician that are blocked from getting out! Once you scroll through the Wizzard to unblock the software you want, it goes behind you and resets the blocks! I end up just disabling the firewall to get stuff done, so what good is 100% firewall protection??? Been using Eset smart security for 12 years now, am fully educated on it's functions!
Cons: Aggressive Firewall with NO Interactive Use anymore! Almost as bad as the Windows 10 builtin Administrator over ruling you!
Overall Review: Using Eset smart security I have never had a virus yet, in 12 years now! But this over aggressive firewall is about to chase me to another brand if it's not fixed soon!
Pros: Samsung's sata SSD hard drive get you as close tot he Mother boards specifications of Sata 3 that you'll get, only the PCIE NVME are faster. Atto tests out with 560 read and 540 write. Theoretically the mother board's sata 3 is supposed to get 600mbts interface, THAT aint going to happen with Spinning hard drives with platters!, 7200RPM will get you some where near 150mbts, a far cry from 600!
Overall Review: Overview is, if you want to upgrade a slow computer of laptop this device is the one to use, you'll think you bought a new computer the increase in speed is at least 5 fold if not more!
Pros: A good value for an older AM3 processor! Came with the I/O plate, windows 10 negates the software mother board drivers! so all that left is to add the components and fire her up! I have had nothing but great experiences with refurbish products, actually they are checked to function better than the brand new in the box versions that roll off an assembly line and every 10th one is checked!
Cons: None what so ever if you're replacing a broke Mobo, because you don't need the sata cables or other accessories to do so!
Overall Review: A great value that otherwise you'd have to buy a used one off auction sites and hope it works ok!
Pros: Very bright, lens allows for focusing the beam wide to narrow.
Cons: It uses the newer LION 18650 batteries that operate at 3.7vdc, once procured you also must buy a charger too. The initial investment is greater than one sees.
Overall Review: It's worth the investment of flashlight, after you buy the battery(s) and charger you'll find the current trend is using these new style batteries in lots of different electronics of portability now. So once you own this battery(s) and charger, some of those future buy might be already powered with your extras.
Pros: Made my Roku more adaptable to the newer platforms.
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: Great product at a great price!
Pros: While you're NOT going to seriously game with this power supply it will do a great job running the AM4 version AMD processors and the Intel i3,i5,i7s with builtin internal video. Those do not take a lot of wattage to run efficiently! Makes this a great value for the money.
Cons: 400watts! Non-modualar.
Overall Review: If you're just wanting a desktop surfer with some reasonable power and speed, this will help accomplish it!
Pros: With this device, you don't need a M2 slot! Even on a Gen2 PCIe mother boards you can increase the reads and writes to 1500 mbts by using this board with a fast SSD NVME, some of the Asus chipsets will even support the SSD like the Fx990 has bios support!.
Cons: If used in a Gen2 Mobo with a Super fast SSD like the Samsung Evo 970 plus with read and write speeds at 3200mbts you will only get half that int he Gen2 PCIe slot!
Overall Review: Gen 2 PCIe boards do have Sata III aka 600mbts serial interfaces but add this Go board with a M2 SSD and see those speeds triple to 1500mbts!
Pros: Create and cook many items that would take twice as long to cook, this one has many models of cooking to allow you simplicity or just dial up time and slow cook it.
Cons: None so far, seems to be solid cooker, the last one wore out the heating element after ten years, this one is more digital than the last one, a QVC Fangor.
Overall Review: Made my usual swiss steak in it all came out as expected. This is very similar to the instant pot brand but at a better price.
Pros: One of the Fastest M2 drives out for Gen3 PCIe, it's read and write speeds are impressive, ATTO backe them up!
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: This M2 SSD by Samsung is a little more in costs per gigs of storage but has the best spects too, well worth the extra dollars for that speed, not to mention it's a Samsung!
Pros: It seems the Motherboard makers align around these processors' nicknames. In this case, it's the Matisse and this nic actually describes how fast the ram can be that it supports. In this case, DDR4 3200 is maxed speed that's not overclocked! It can be overclocked to run speedier ram up to the Mobo makes specs in most cases 4400mhz. The other item to pay attention to is it's PCIe Generation version supported, in this case it's generation 4.0
Cons: You would think the differences between the Ryzen 5-3400g and the Ryzen 5-3600X would be almost the same except temps and wattages, 65watts vrs 95watts! The differences are quite nominal! The processors with the internal Graphics gives away to performance such as Ram speeds, the "g" models provide video but a the expense of ram speeds lowered to DDR4 2933mhz. Do read up on your AMD processors, it's not like the previous AMDs socket AM3s, the AM4s differ quite radically!
Overall Review: Great CPU moves right along at 6 cores and ddr4-3200 ram, the 95 watts of heat is easily cooled by water cooling no cheaper than ever, even with RBG LEDs too.
Pros: A lot of board for the money, this X570 is also PCIe 4.0 gen, so future speeds on storage will scream once those prices come down to earth! This board I populated with a Ryzen 5-3600x to have the ability to use max ram not OCed at 3200mhz, 32 gig on a windows 10 pro OS.
Cons: Be careful while handling this Motherboard, holding it by its heatsinks can and will create those razor cuts, painful to say the least. Those heatsinks must have been cut with lasers, pointed angle cuts with ease! Both hands and 3 fingers later bleeding on the instruction manual.
Overall Review: Overall, all you need to know is it's an Asus board, rugged (vengeful) reliable, uses the latest technology so that on day 2 your not lastyears model behind instantly!
Pros: 6 month was cut short, got a refund but that's not what I wanted....
Cons: bought 6 months got 5!
Overall Review: Not sure if these types of plans can be trusted in the future!
Pros: Absolutely necessary if you're using a case with 4 USB3s on the face plate, because those cases like the Rosewill nighthawk use two sets of USB3 cable to connect to the mother board, BUT motherboards come with only ONE connector for the USB3s. Hence the need for a PCI card like this one to be able to enable the 2nd set of USB3s.
Overall Review: Solves the problem of two USB3 Cables from the face plate of the case and only one place to plug it in!
This car enables you to be able to plug in the second set of USB3s
Pros: Made a great HTPC to stream my NAS content on wireless. Just added a Asus Radion 5450 and a wireless adapter to make it all work!
Cons: No HDMI output but a cheap radion 5450 will do the trick to feed a big screen content.
Overall Review: Good speed eve with only 4 gig ram, add SSD for the OS and it significantly became twice as fast!
It was never the less a great value at it's default setup, I'd buy another at that price again!
Pros: Easy to assemble tot he mobo, just make sure you have a spot to install the radiator with 120 fan size tot he back of top of the cases you might use. If you don't have many fan connectors this one will give you a spliter too.
Cons: As with Corsair products NONE!
Overall Review: Used on a Ryzen 9-3900 and it keeps it very cool showing idle at 32c
Pros: This one checks out with ATTO bech checks at 3200mbts and 3000mbts on an Asus x570.
Cons: It's a Gen3 PCIe version
Overall Review: If you want to close the gap in the bottle neck speeds between hard drive ram and processor speeds, this one will help, there are faster ones but to get there you'll have to purchase the X570 mobos in PCIe Gen 4, those are NOT cheap for some reason!
Pros: Lives up to it's name, fast drive! Ran ATTO on it checks out at 560mbts and 490.
Overall Review: If you need sata this one will deliver the mobo sata 3 speeds
Pros: Great value ram at 3600mhz, has lots of head room if you use a Ryzen 9-3900 that ops out at 3200mhz.
Cons: None, G-skillram always works flawlessly!
Overall Review: Install it on a Asus X570 with a Ryzen 9-3900, no issues what so ever.
Pros: Low wattage for it's size and 8 cores
Cons: Top 3200mhz ram!
Overall Review: Great speed, seems to run fairly cool on a water cooler.
Pros: ALL power is via connections, event he main motherboard power is modular. Makes for a clean install, only the power required is installed. It was installed in a full ATX tower and had the lengths to reach from the bottom to the top, and still had to tuck some tot he back side out of sight!
Cons: None at all!
Overall Review: This one is the one to buy, you might not need 750watts but it's nice to have spare wattage in case the decision in the future might include more power hungry devices. The full modular design makes for clean installs and very useful.
