Rosewill RHEC-16BK6-FP2 3 Outlets Flat Plug Power Strip with 6 Feet Cord Black (2 pack)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: none

Cons: The receptacles are so tight, you have to push with a lot of force to insert plugs. Even when you do force plugs in, they are so shallow that there is a gap between the surfaces of the plug and the receptacle, exposing the prongs.

Other Thoughts: First and last time I fall for the "cyber monday" deals.

HP ProDesk 600 G2 SFF Desktop, Intel Dual-Core i3-6100 3.7GHz, 8GB DDR4, 240GB SSD Plus 500GB HDD, DVD-RW, Wifi, Bluetooth, Supports 3 Monitors, Windows 7 Professional 64Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: At $499, lots of bang for your buck

Cons: Needs a lot of time and effort to set up

Other Thoughts: Since HP's latest tower computers have gone very proprietary and incompatible with third party components for upgrades or repairs, I figured I might as well save some space with the smaller case. The box is nicely put together and runs very quietly.

W7 on the SSD seems aimed at professionals who just need a starting point to configure their workstation. Initial updates takes many hours to download and install over 700 MB of updates. There are tips and tricks on the net on how to speed this up, but I just let it run overnight and do its thing. After updates the performance index for video (Aero) performance jumped from 5.4 to 6.9.

Lots of HP software included. They made the "Security Client" very hard to uninstall. Removing all drive letters except "C:" finally did it.

If you want to do a fresh W7 install, make sure you have PS/2 mouse and keyboard available.

A cable runs from a connector on the wireless card, labeled "Bluetooth", to a port on the mobo labeled "SD RDR", this may cause some confusion.

2016 Newest Dell Inspiron i3650 Flagship High Performance Desktop, Intel Quad-Core i7-6700 Processor, 16GB RAM, 2TB HDD, AMD Radeon HD R9 360, DVD+/-RW, WiFi, HDMI, Windows 7 &10 Professional

Pros: Small case fits in confined spaces. W7 Pro pre-installed with not too much junk included.

Cons: Non-standard PSU and connectors. Adding HDDs require you to get additional caddies and cables.

Other Thoughts: If the included hardware fits your needs and you don't do upgrades or repairs yourself, the machine is fine.

It is not good for the DIY or enthusiast crowd. The proprietary PSU is only 240W. Proprietary SATA power cable comes off the proprietary motherboard, and only has one connector for a hard drive - the other one is for the optical drive only. There is one unused SATA power port on the mobo. Only room for one 3.5" HDD. There is a bay that will hold two 2.5" drives - using proprietary, not included, caddies. Additional or replacement parts would most likely have to be purchased from Dell, if you can get them.

To open the hinged swing-out bays you need to first remove the plastic faceplate. There is a screw holding the 3.5" HDD enclosure in place.
