This review is from: Windows 8.1 64-bit
Pros: Better than original Windows 8
Cons: Nowhere near as smooth and streamlined as Windows 7
Other Thoughts: 8.1 is definitely an improvement over 8.0, I'll say that. But neither can hold a candle to 7. Microsoft is up to its old tricks again with the alternating good-bad releases of operating systems. It almost seems like they purposely release a bad one to make the good ones look better. Let's review:
Windows 98 Second Edition: great
Windows Millenium Edition: awful
Windows XP: great
Windows Vista: awful
Windows 7: great
Windows 8/8.1: awful
Definitely skip Windows 8 and either get Windows 7, wait for the next Windows, or go Linux.
Pros: Always a great value
Cons: Not as fast as an SSD
Other Thoughts: I've used over a dozen of the WD Black Series drives without a single problem. They'll continue to be my go-to platter drive as long as SSDs stay too expensive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, hell of a lot cheaper than the Intel equivalent
Cons: Wish they still made the Phenom II series.
Other Thoughts: Cruising along as the heart of a system built for Photoshop. I built a Phenom II system in 2010 for Photoshop and it works great to this day. I went with the Vishera as the logical next step in performance. It works excellent.READ FULL REVIEW
