This review is from: MSI 6681-001BUS Intel Core2 Quad and Core2 Duo processors (TDP: Max. 65W) Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel G41 Intel GMA X4500 1 x HDMI 4.7-liter Desktop Barebone with SuperMulti DVDRW Drive included
Pros: Relatively cheap. Small, and attractive case design.
Cons: The thing doesn't work. When I read the previous reviews on this Site, you I assumed that they were either outliers or that the problem had been resolved by now. It appears I was wrong. After I sent g my Core2 duo e8400, 4 gb of ram, and and sata ssd, I powered it on. I get no video and one long, continuous beep from the motherboard. Documentation for the product is all but nonexistent. I am very disappointed.
Other Thoughts: Rather moot as the thing doesn't work, but the power supply is an external brick type. I wish they would have made the case a bit bigger and put it internally, instead.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very pretty. Good styling. Very good price. Many custom settings to adjust picture quality. Great variety of connections.
Cons: 1 dead pixel (no biggie)
Speakers are far to quiet; even with them turned all the way up and my sound card maxed out, I can barely hear anything.
Other Thoughts: So long as you have some external speakers, I'd totally recommend this monitor. Playing games is amazing and movies look great. With this, I can finally hook up my X BOX 360 in my room to get it away from my house mates; they tend to break nice things.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Huge bloody block of storage.
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: I have nothing of real significance to say...I just wanted to put my vote up for this good product. Potential buyer: remember that the bad reviews aren't indicative of the product; far more people will post a review when something doesn't work than when something does work.
I'll admit that I don't demand a lot of my drive (simple media storage), but it's been fine for me. I've read some of the horror stories in other reviews, but don't worry about it.
When you first get the drive, run it through the mill (disk check utilities, copying lots of data to it many times...stuff you should do with every new drive) to test it; if it doesn't break in the first few days, it probably never will. If it does break under that load, NewEgg has fantastic RMA service (as I have experienced with other products) and you can start again with a fresh drive. As someone who has worked in quality assurance, no manufacturer can catch every error every time.
