PHOTOSMART 6520 eAll in One

1 out of 5 eggs HP never again! 10/23/2015

This review is from: PHOTOSMART 6520 eAll in One

Pros: When it worked, it wortked fine.

Cons: After one year of faultless operation ity began to screw up. First Windows-7 thought every print job was a fax, this took a complete re-install of software to resolve. Then a month later it stopped printin!
It was working, would print test sheets etc. but not actually print anything from Windows. Complete re-install of software, new ink, new usb cable, and more testing and still no printing.

Other Thoughts: I'm sick and tired of the runaround from HP. After buying HP exclusively I'll never buy another HP product again. When I hit control-P, I expect my printer to work, without fail, without question. When I contact a company's servivce department I expect answers, and yes the printer is plugged in and the drivers are up to date.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Best bang for the buck and the CPU runs everything just fine on a Asus Sabertooth MoBo with Ripjaws16g-1600 memory.. Will auto overclock to 4.3ghz with the stock cooler. I'm using the Corsair H100 cooler with the stock 200mm fans in my Cooler Master HAF-932, I've run up to 4.8ghz using the AMD program. Once over 4.8g the fans really dial up and things start humming. But since I have no programs or games that stress it, I leave it on auto tune.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Forget about power consumption! Just cooking a breakfast of bacon and eggs on my electric stove is equal to my PC running for 40 hours non-stop!

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 100362SR 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Excellent card for the money and Sapphire build quality is tops, so why pay more?. Runs quiet and cool OC'd at 1100 with no problem. Uses far less power then my electric stove, coffee maker, or microwave and produces very little heat compared to them as well. If your card is running hot, check out your case airflow first or else dial the card back a notch or two.

Cons: Stupid rebate! This is the third Sapphire card this year and I'm still waiting for three different rebates! I normally don't buy anything with a rebate attached, but the price was right even without it.
Please stop with the rebates, just knock off another ten dollars and we'll all be a lot happier! Can NewEgg do something about this?

Other Thoughts: The card looks small in my Cooler Master HAF 932 case which is one reason it runs cool. Even though I can afford to pay more, I don't believe in over spending on anything that will be obsolete in two or three years!
