Taipad 7D 7
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price - 60 bucks is pretty good for a starter tab

Cons: There is just something odd about the backlight. I kinda hurts my eyes. Reminds me of a mix of an old style backlight with a security screen. With the gig of free disk space it fills up pretty fast even moving installs to sdcard. With it filling up fast it bogs and gets slow. I did run a 720 movie that worked well only from sdcard. If streaming it kinda stops for a while to buffer. The charger is like a longer version of my Android phone charger but my android charger is too short to fit in plug.

Other Thoughts: I am a little disappointed with the tablet but like I said...its for my 6 year old son. He is only going to be using it for games and movies.

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto Dual-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 80W HDZ550WFGIBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I was lucky...I was able to unlock all four cores right out of box and stable.

Cons: I have an after market cooler that I had from the processor before I switched to this one which seems to need more cooling than the original phenom2x4. 5 case fans and an after market cpu fan and heatsink and still gets to 70c with prime. Though I don't use any programs on a daily basis that causes the temp to go above 60c the heating doesn't bother me too much as long as I don't need to test with prime which still costed it an egg.

Other Thoughts: With heating a problem I will not be overclocking this beyond the 3.1ghz until I find a worthy cooler. The processor has a pretty good speed by its self just with all four cores unlocked. Windows rates it a 7.3.

MSI GeForce GTX 260 DirectX 10 N260GTX-T2D896-OCv2 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Runs Crysis on full with no bogs.

Cons: Its been 3 years and been working fine until a week ago when i started getting glitches and lockups. Contacted MSI and they told me that the card was going out to send it in for repair since it was on the final year of the warranty which is only $45 +shipping.

SLI Support has been discontinued in the windows operating system

Also, this is a massive card in size. If you are running a highend computer with air only cooling i would find a smaller card. This card stretches from the back to actually rubbing against the harddrive bays.

Heat....with most amd processors they have a temp max of 70c and this card dumps the hot air into the case rather then intake from outside and dumping to outside. I have 6 fans venting my board and am running around 60c when playing. Thats not much leeway.

Also cannot update the drivers with out getting conflicts

Other Thoughts: Overall....I am disappointed in this card in size, cost, and sli ability.
