4 out of 5 eggs Good quality computer for everyday use, or for a small server or testing computer 07/05/2016

This review is from: HP Desktop Computer 6200 PRO Intel Core i5 2400 (3.10 GHz) 4 GB 250 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional

Pros: Speedy Processor (3.1, 3.8 Turbo, 4 cores)
Easy access to drivers through HP's website
Gigabit Ethernet

Cons: Unusual hard drive mounting (extra screws included under front bezel)
Small amount of RAM (supports more, I've got 12GB in mine now, pulled from another system)
Only one RAM speed supported (1333)
Weird motherboard and power supply, cannot mount in other cases, or accept other power supplies (does not use 20,20+4,or 24 pin connector)

Other Thoughts: This is a good computer for everyday use. It's more than capable of most tasks, is actually pretty up to date on hardware too. It keeps up with more modern systems very well, and would be a great everyday computer. I actually purchased mine through my school (same model, same everything), for a bit less money due to discounts, to use as a server. I was able to run several Hyper-V clients on it without encountering lag or delays.

Acer G7 G237HLbi Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good color reproduction
Large but not excessively so
Standby mode is responsive, blue LED not incredibly bring, so it is bearable and not obtrusive
Easy to set up and adjust

Cons: Manual is somewhat hard to understand, seems to be shoehorned
Lacks DVI input
Will not allow non-native resolutions to be set by the user unless forced (i.e. game running only at 1360x768, will run properly, but you cannot set it to such a resolution within the control panel)

Other Thoughts: It's a good monitor for the price, and is a good replacement for an older or smaller monitor.

5 out of 5 eggs Incredible Improvement, but some issues 11/17/2013

This review is from: Rosewill ROCC-13001 AIOLOS PLUS 120mm Long Life Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Core i7

Pros: Very powerful
Quieter than my stock fan
Whereas my stock fan would run about 70C under the stresses I put it under, this kept below 35 C with the same stress
I used to idle at 30C, now I idle at 20C

Cons: AMD mounting bracket can be a little tricky if you aren't taking the motherboard out of the case
A little taller than I expected. I used previous comments' guidelines, but it still nudges against the side of my case, and I had to move a case fan to a different slot

Other Thoughts: For the price, you really can't do a whole lot better. I'd suggest this to anyone doing a build with a processor exceeding 120 watts.
