This review is from: HP Desktop PC ProDesk 600 G1 (W5Y32UT#ABA) Intel Core i3 4th Gen 4160T (3.10 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit with Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit upgradable
Pros: Ships with Windows 7 Professional installed and includes both Win7 Pro and Win10 Pro installation media!
Awesome economical Core i3-4160T CPU with Intel HD 4400 graphics.
After adding another 4GB RAM, my Windows 7 WEI Scores are CPU 7.2 / RAM 7.5 / GRAPHICS 5.1 AERO AND 6.6 3D / Samsung 750 EVO 120GB SSD 7.9 (I swapped the 500GB HDD out).
Cons: *** UPDATE 11/5/2016: Found that the M.2 2280 slot does not support SATA mode SSD. If you install an M.2 SSD in this slot it MUST be the more costly PCI-E version. *** Still thrilled with it, but be aware!
No HDMI port onboard but can add adapter cable to convert from DisplayPort. Includes a single 4GB DDR3 SODIMM module but can add another module for Dual-Channel increased speed. Proprietary mainboard to SATA adapter cable has sharp bend just under housing cover. Might develop bad connection if SATA drive sometimes exchanged.
Other Thoughts: Has a built-in recovery partition on HDD that can restore everything. Recovery DVD media is plain OS only. Includes separate DVD for restoring drivers and applications (plus PowerDVD 12). Same problem with included HP Recovery Disc creator program. I cloned everything to SSD and will repurpose the HDD in a USB 3.0 enclosure.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Decent budget card features, performance, and memory when purchased 8 years ago.
Cons: Died after about 8 years of use. Not too bad I guess. Caused computer to turn COMPLETELY OFF 4 seconds after power on. Replacing the video card restored computer to operation.
Other Thoughts: Not sure what component died in the card. Looked for bad capacitors but none seemed bulged. GPU fan still works great.
Received this card from Newegg but actually ordered a very similar LOW profile card. Accepted the card rather than return it. End of Line.
Pros: It is an adapter with removeable N150 WIFI BT card by RALINK and seems even more promising if upgraded to a low cost Intel AC card. Price seemed very fair, only to find it was not nearly worth my time and frustration with poor product.
Cons: Card and attached bracket are pushed several millimeters forward so they can not install in my motherboard slot. If I could seat this card straight down where the rear bracket lands, all the contacts would be misaligned to the next adjacent contact and fry my equipment! Thankfully the MB keyed plastic socket won't allow installation of this junk. Seeking refund from Newegg even though the cost is low.
Other Thoughts: I have been building computers for decades and sometimes needed to adjust a card, rear bracket, or screws to help fit the motherboard or case alignment. This card simply could not be adjusted enough to install in my PC so I reinstalled my previous WIFI card in the slot quite easily. Disappointed that a good product idea was manufactured so badly.READ FULL REVIEW
