Most Favorable Review

AMD does it again.

AMD Ryzen 3 1st Gen - RYZEN 3 1300X Summit Ridge (Zen) 4-Core 3.5 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD130XBBAEBOX Desktop Processor
AMD Ryzen 3 1st Gen - RYZEN 3 1300X Summit Ridge (Zen) 4-Core 3.5 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD130XBBAEBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: This processor coupled with a M.2 drive from western digital, rx 570 video and 8GB of 2400MHZ ram is just perfect for a nice budget rig. This processor is very cheap for what you're getting.

Cons: Nothing at this price point.

Overall Review: The stock wraith cooler works quite well. Unless you plan on doing some serious overclocking to one of these, don't bother upgrading the cooler.

Very Small Can

Compucessory 24300 Air Duster Cleaning Spray Ozone-safe, Moisture-free - 1 Each

Pros: It's air duster alright.

Cons: It's so small for the almost $9 that you're better off getting just about any other can.

Flawless

Rosewill RCRC-18001 Mining Card, Riser Card, PCIe (PCI Express) 16x to 1x Riser Adapter, USB 3.0 Extension Cable 60cm, 6 pin PCI-E to SATA Power Cable, GPU Riser Adapter, Ethereum Mining Riser Card
Rosewill RCRC-18001 Mining Card, Riser Card, PCIe (PCI Express) 16x to 1x Riser Adapter, USB 3.0 Extension Cable 60cm, 6 pin PCI-E to SATA Power Cable, GPU Riser Adapter, Ethereum Mining Riser Card

Pros: It works without hassle. I've had plenty of riser and a few that have died. None of them that have died are from Rosewill. Their products have NEVER failed me.

Cons: There's no such thing as a Con with Rosewill.

Overall Review: Buy these over others. They're worth not having a million tiny returns.

Coboc is great for extensions.

Pros: I've bought many of these and they all work just fine.

Cons: Not a single thing.

Overall Review: Coboc make some of the best extension products out there. I've ordered at least 100 cables from them without one issue at all. Most of these are power connectors, so to have that many with no issues really says something about Coboc.

Amazingly Fast

WD Blue 3D NAND 250GB Internal SSD - SATA III 6Gb/s M.2 2280 Solid State Drive - WDS250G2B0B
WD Blue 3D NAND 250GB Internal SSD - SATA III 6Gb/s M.2 2280 Solid State Drive - WDS250G2B0B

Pros: For the speed on these drives, I don't think you can ask for a better price. While only saying that it gets about 30MB more reading speed and about 100MB more writing speed than my previous ssd, the difference in loading times says way more. For the improved 6% read and 25% write speeds, I got a pc that loads in about 8 seconds from power button to desktop. Before that, the time was about 20 seconds.

Cons: Not a single one.

Overall Review: Western Digital is one of two go-to companies for me for drives, along with Bi-Win. I've had a few of the Caviar Series and no flaws. The Green series worked great for me and now the Blue M.2 drive seems to be continuing that trend.

Cheap for what you get.

Pros: It's decently fast and comes with 1GB of ram for decently cheap.

Cons: The space is the big killer, if I could get this phone with 16GB of storage for like $5-10 more, this would be 5 eggs.

Overall Review: Pretty decent if you just want a smart phone with a few small apps. Go with a phone with bigger storage if you need any big apps on it at all.
