ZT Desktop PC Affinity 7521Mi Intel Core i7 870 (2.93 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 5450 Windows 7 Home Premium

Pros: This is a nice computer and I am mostly pleased with it. I have had very little trouble with the computer since the day I purchased it.

Cons: I lost the CD to reinstall the drive that came with the computer (later found it) but the reinstall was not an easy one and I had problems with ZT getting the correct drivers to work with the computer. Still after this reinstall the computer is not the same as before in several respects. I may attempt another reinstall with the original disks I now have found and see if the little problems I have had are now gone.

Other Thoughts: Since the day I bought the computer I have had reported high temperatures with the computer using CoreTemp. Much later I downloaded software known as "SpeedFan" and it indicated a bad "Winbond" and after checking things out I do believe the high temperatures were in fact erroneous to begin with. I do believe that if the temperature were in actuality what i was shown, the computer would have ceased to function long ago. Still the Winbond is a technical error which means the computer came from the factory like this.

2 out of 5 eggs Died In LESS Than 3 Months 03/30/2013

This review is from: WD My Book 3TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Storage WDBACW0030HBK-NESN

Pros: Beautiful drive - functioned well - no problems there !

Cons: The unit failed to turn on (was flashing and then quit) & I assume it was an electrical failure and not the drive itself.

Other Thoughts: Since the drive contains about 2 TB of old data I am going to see if I can put the drive in an external enclosure and harvest my data. I realize this will invalidate my warranty but keeping my data is worth not getting a replacement unit from WD. I paid $150 for this unit and would have expected it to have lasted much longer than this one did. I have used WD internal drives doe years without any problems.

HP Desktop PC Pavilion Elite h8-1040 (QN562AA#ABA) Intel Core i7 2600 (3.40 GHz) 10 GB DDR3 1.5 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: See my previous review

Cons: I forgot to mention that the instructions that came with the machine were far from adequate. The "quick setup" was almost a joke and the pictured computer was nothing near what my actual computer was in fact. Had I not had considerable computer experience this would have stopped me in my tracks. What did stop me was how to install the wireless mouse and keyboard. There were more than enough parts and vague instructions that I bypassed that and located a standard optical mouse and keyboard and let it go at that.

Other Thoughts: Even with all this I am still only subtracting one egg. The machine is working perfectly, although I have not seriously put the machine to "work" at the tasks intended.

The computer comes with a 1.5 TB hard drive, which in my personal opinion is "excessive" My internet computers hard drive is about half that and I have not even come close to the limit. Frankly, I put much of my data on external hard drives and back up that to a DVD. This is how I work and see things and I realize there are diverse patterns of use which are all viable and proper.
