Most Favorable Review

Great TV

LCD HDTV
LCD HDTV

Pros: Great picture clear sound excellent value

Cons: None thus far

Overall Review: As a second TV for the house, this one does an excellent job. The picture is clear (even when put up against my 42" 1080p primary TV) and the speakers are quite nice despite the size

Most Critical Review

Ok, When it works

Cisco Small Business WAP2000 Wireless-G Access Point: PoE
Cisco Small Business WAP2000 Wireless-G Access Point: PoE

Pros: When it works (more on that below), it provides a good connection and decent throughput. The GUI is easy on the eyes and easy to use

Cons: I have to constantly power cycle the unit, as it drops connections frequently. It also seems to choke when more than one PC is connected at a time. Even with the latest FW, it is a less than reliable piece of hardware

Overall Review: There are better options out there that can be had for far less money

Great AIO system

DELL OptiPlex 9010 23" 1920x1080 FHD Touchscreen All-In-One Desktop PC, Intel Core i7-3770S 3.10GHz, 6GB DDR3 RAM, 128GB SSD, Win-10 Home x64
DELL OptiPlex 9010 23" 1920x1080 FHD Touchscreen All-In-One Desktop PC, Intel Core i7-3770S 3.10GHz, 6GB DDR3 RAM, 128GB SSD, Win-10 Home x64

Pros: -Snappy Performance - Quick Boot Times - No Cosmetic Issues (always a concern with a refurb) - Very sturdy (aka kid finger friendly)

Cons: - Bigger than expected - Very heavy

Overall Review: I only wish it came with WiFi and bluetooth, but those issues are solved with some cheap peripherals. Overall it's a great machine that performs well

Decent Monitor, awesome price

AOC I2721VH 27" 1920 x 1080 60 Hz D-Sub, DVI, HDMI LCD Monitor IPS
AOC I2721VH 27" 1920 x 1080 60 Hz D-Sub, DVI, HDMI LCD Monitor IPS

Pros: Picture quality is excellent, installation was a breeze (I like that it has VGA, DVI and HDMI ports). Pretty much plug and play, no tweaking necessary on for my AMD/Radeon based gaming rig. If you can get it for under $200 then its an absolute steal

Cons: the build quality isn't on par with some of the bigger name brands, but its by no means deficient.

Overall Review: Overall i'm very happy with the purchase. A lot of bang for the buck

Good PSU

Diablotek DA Series PSDA600 600 W ATX12V v2.2 Power Supply

Pros: Installed in my existing ATX case without an issue. So far not one problem, it just works

Cons: Cable management is a bit difficult, but not impossible

Great Value PC

ASUS Desktop PC CM1740-US-2AD A8-Series APU A8-3820 (2.50GHz) 8GB DDR3 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6550D Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Purchased this for my Father-in-law for basic web browsing, photo editing etc, and thus far I'm very pleased with the results. It's a fast and capable box that offers a lot of versatility for the price. There isn't anything it can't do well, and while serious gamers might want to look elsewhere, In my opinion, this is the perfect home PC (at least until Intel's Ivy Bridge comes out)

Cons: Stock keyboard and mouse are a bit chinsy, but thats an easy fix

Overall Review: In my opinion, the best all around PC for shoppers on a budget
