Pioneer VSX-822-K 5.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs DOA 10/07/2013

This review is from: Pioneer VSX-822-K 5.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver

Pros: It's pretty

Cons: Dead. Migrated from Pioneer VSX-521 to this, connected hdmi and speakers. Plugged into surge protector.... Puff of smoke off the transformer as soon as I pressed the power button. I will keep the one that works, and never mind upgrading.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW)  High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Doesn't leak. Looks cool. Installation was a snap.

Cons: After installation, temps were consistently over 50c. My previous air cooled Phanteks was keeping the CPU at 35c.

Other Thoughts: The LGA2011 has been around for a while. Perhaps the stock thermal paste was not up to par. I have ordered Arctic Silver 5, and we'll see what that does. As of now, I am less than impressed with the H60.

Plextor M5P Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Seek times and transfer speeds. I cannot begin to describe the difference from traditional HDD. Load times and installations are reduced by 89% on average. Antivirus scans 210MB/s on this drive, as opposed to 20MB/s on Sata III 1.5TB HDD that I run for data storage. Mounting hardware comes with the drive, nicely packaged. Nice Shiny Box.

Cons: Price is a bit steep. I will be looking forward to additional price drops in the future. The software is not packaged and shipped with the drive, it is available for download from Manufacturer's website.

Other Thoughts: I really can't wait for capacity increase at this level of performance.
