Pros: A nice classic monofunction cord for a classic monofunction device.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Works just fine as a charger for an older model GPS I own. Most of the car charger market seems geared towards charging phones via micro usb now, was happy to find this model at a very competitive price.
The quality of the cable is higher than I expected as well, it's got a sort of soft-touch coating on it and it's very springy.
Pros: Cool, efficient, and powerful. Excellent integrated graphics, even compared to APUs.
Cons: Does not make toast or other foodstuffs.
Other Thoughts: Recently centered a new build around this CPU. I was impressed to see that not only did it exceed all my expectations in the raw processing department, but that the integrated graphics were powerful enough to play most of my older games on high and even certain games on medium that I thought would be unplayable until I invested in a GPU. This was a big plus for me; I spent a lot of time pricing APU's and reading up on them and if I had known HD 4600 worked as well as it did I wouldn't have even considered APU's for a second, considering that my rig is geared for equal parts gaming and development/graphics.
That aside, regarding the unlocked version, which seems to be the preferred standard for this series, I'd urge people to consider that its not just an unlocked processor you're buying; you have to have a mobo that supports overclocking and you'll probably want a GPU that's unlocked, too, and then an efficient enough cooling system to support all this. When you factor in all these things you'll easily end up spending another 200 bucks on a system just to be able to overclock it, which really doesn't make sense for most people considering all that could changed in the world of computers in another few years and how excellent current technologies already are at base clock speeds.
Pros: Drive functions well, haven't had any problems so far. About to purchase another one to put in RAID1 with the first.
Cons: It's not a petabyte SSD, and it doesn't shoot lasers or prepare lattes.
Other Thoughts: I have no loyalty to brands when it comes to hard drives, but I also own a WD external drive that's older than the sun and have some different WD HD's on an older computer and I've never had any problems with them.READ FULL REVIEW
