Pros: - 5x FPS from my old card
- radeon software overlay works very well
- noticeable improvement to streaming performance
Cons: - Random system hard crashes varying from hardlock freezes to abruptly shutting down completely, never blue screen or any driver errors
- Fan speed randomly speeds up to an extremely noisy level despite all temperature readings in normal zones
- Sometimes performance degrades dramatically and require a reboot to restore normal operation
Overall Review: I would guess this card was used to mine crypto and then repackaged for consumer use, it has all the staples and stereotypes of an overworked card. still better than my old one.
Pros: Probably the best UI for Windows Mobile 6 I've seen so far...
Cons: It's slow, bad battery, breaks easy, and worst of all it runs Windows Mobile. You can get a decent low end Android phone for the same price now-a-days, there's really absolutely no point in buying this thing. I've had mine for a few years now and it's given me nothing but troubles the whole time. It's literally an ongoing joke between myself and my friends as to how long I can continue using this [bad word] before I break it. So far the answer is "way too long"...
I'm replacing mine with a Samsung Galaxy S ASAP (aka Thursday)...
Overall Review: Honestly I can't believe Newegg even puts this thing on sale and recommends anyone buying it. I was shocked when I saw it in my inbox...
Realistically, until WM 7 comes out, there is absolutely no point is investing in any Windows smart phones. It's buggy, slow, unintuitive, and an all around pain in the rear to work with. DO NOT buy ANY Windows Mobile devices with a version number starting in anything below 7 (which at the time of writing this is not yet released)...
WM 7 does look really good though....
Pros: Really really nice ram. Runs wicked fast, runs wicked stable, and has ridiculous overclocking potential. My ram is so cool looking. I had to manually set the voltage for it to work with my overclock, but when I did so I realized they run stable at 2.0V... My ram is so cool looking.
Cons: For the past 3 weeks I have been putting the phase "My ram is so cool looking" into casual conversations. Most of my friends are used to it by now but sometimes I throw people off. Like the people at the bank. They were awfully confused.
Overall Review: I almost wish I well less of a nerd so people wouldn't be weirded out by me slipping my RAM into small talk. My ram is so cool looking.
Pros: It's amazing. I didn't really think I'd notice a huge difference but I did. No real performance increase in games or anything, but all loading times decreased. I want to buy more for a RAID...
Cons: It's hotter and louder than your average drive. But come on, can you really complain? 5 stars.
Overall Review: The silk bag it comes in is very nice. My cats thought so too.
Pros: It works perfectly. A few people complained about the range, but it wasn't an issue for me because the router is just across the room... It's fast and hasn't given me any of the hassles that I usually get from Linksys and stuff... I hate those guys...
Cons: It was bigger than I was expecting, but even then it's still pretty small.
Overall Review: Cheap solution. Works fine for basic wireless networking.
Pros: It's a pretty cool case. I like it. Sturdy, easy to work with, nice tool-less HDD and cdrom drive things... Pretty too! The fans that it comes with are virtually silent. All around a good case.
Cons: Did not arrive with complementary Anna Kournikova.
Overall Review: If you get a big heatsink, like my Tuniq Tower the fan on the side must be removed. I took out the side window and put it back in upside down and turned it into a GPU cooling side fan :-P... Something like a CM GeminII has no chance of working in this case.
Pros: Neat looking.
Cons: Compatibility issues. Make sure your motherboard supports this ram, go on forums and stuff to double check. It runs hot and slow. You can get better for less. I returned mine and am waiting on teh Crucial Ballistix! WEEW!
Overall Review: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L, Q6600, 2GB Crucial Ballistix 1066, 500GB HDD, Raptor X 150GB HDD, EVGA 8800GTS 512MB...
Pros: Keeps my Q6600 at 3.2GHz cool without any additional case fans. When those fans were added I could get it to 3.6GHz while staying under to 70c mark. I dropped the OC back down to 3.0GHz because it's a nice number and it runs at 40c... The fan that it comes with it silent too.
Cons: Could not teach me how to harness the power of the sun and stars.
Overall Review: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L, Q6600, 2GB Crucial Ballistix 1066, 500GB HDD, EVGA 8800GTS 512MB...
Pros: It hasn't shown even the slightest sign of failing on me. Constantly pumps all the power I could ever want...
Cons: Did not lower my car insurance premium.
Pros: It's fast, it overclocks well, it's cheap. So long as you don't plan to SLI this is the board you want. Hands down.
Cons: some RAM incompatibility issues (as with most boards)... If you go to their website they have a list of supported RAM... Also check out some forums and stuff to find out what RAM blocks work in addition to that list.
Pros: It's amazing! Eats up everything I've thrown at it so far. It also comes with an adapter to plug in component cables, which is nice because I have my computer wired into my HDTV... Let me tell you, 37" of 1080i video games is AWESOME.
Cons: If you plan to overclock this thing get a 3rd party heatsink. It runs hot!
