4 out of 5 eggs Great Laptop, Especially for the budget minded user 06/01/2016

This review is from: DELL Laptop Inspiron 15-5555 AMD A10-Series A10-8700P (1.80 GHz) 12 GB Memory 1 TB HDD AMD Integrated 15.6" Windows 8.1

Pros: This thing is virtually a steal at this price. I've had no problems with mine and I've owned it for about 2 weeks now. I'm not trying to use this as a gaming Laptop however it runs WoW on "good" (auto configure) at about 25FPS average. And CS:GO at about 50FPS. Not great, but for the price? Excellent! I did slap a SSD in it, but even with the HDD it ran ok.

Cons: The only problem is Dells fault. When they built the motherboard, they built it for a carrizo-L processor. Meaning, the RAM won't run in dual channel mode. This laptop would be beast mode if Dell didn't bottleneck the CPU in the name of cost savings.

Other Thoughts: I still give it 4 stars because even though the RAM is stuck in Single Channel mode, it still performs quite well.

MSI R9 270 GAMING 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Great bang for the buck 03/23/2014

This review is from: MSI R9 270 GAMING 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great card, Plays everything I need it to and on ultra or very high. THIS CARD IS COOL! This particular card has not run past 60c on me yet. Another good thing is the 1 6pin power connector to save on Watts as well as a molex adapter for those who don't have an extra 6pin on one of their rails. Very Quiet too. Fantastic card looks great, the box this thing is shipped in is beautiful, you really feel like you bought something great.

Cons: Only negatives that cross my mind are: size, it is a rather large card make sure you have room for it, both across and height. I have a gigabyte ud3 and it runs clear across and over my southbridge, but somehow manages to stay cool. And another thing, the biggest con actually , for me anyway. NO CASE STICKER?!?!?? With the glorious box this card comes in I was undoubtedly expecting a Radeon R9 or MSI or both case sticker(s), Even without the exceptional packaging I would expect a case sticker. Perhaps I'm too out of style to realize case stickers aren't cool anymore, whatever it is a let down.

Other Thoughts: Sure wish I had a RADEON R9 case sticker.....i can see it on my case now to the right of my AMD FX sticker and below the "silently cooled by GELID" sticker.

WD Red 2TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD20EFRX

Pros: Stable, Stable, Stable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I always buy Western Digital drives. I know some people dislike them but for me Seagate's cause me the headaches whereas Western Digital has always been solid. I still have just for proof of reliability, an 8 GB WD back from an old Pentium II running in a 6-9 year old computer my mother-in-law uses for an extra data drive. This WD Red drive is outfitted in all 4 of the NAS's I have implemented in the 4 properties I manage. Not 1 hiccup thus far. They've been in service now for just about year.
