Pros: Excellent fit and finish. So easy to install. Plug&Play. Aluminum and a fan for cooling. Sturdy. Doesn't need a stand.
Cons: The fan is loud, but that is easily solved by turning it off and leaving suitable space for cooling.
Other Thoughts: I have three of them now. No problems. And, they look very nice standing together, I use them in my HTPC, so USB 2,0 is not an issue for me. Excellent buy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cache, speed, longevity, pure power.
Cons: How can you have a con for a CPU you have been using hard for coming up on 5 years?
Other Thoughts: O/C'd to 3.33 since it was new. Has run 24/7/365 for nearly 5 years, except for maintenance and new motherboards.
It is still a high-end CPU.
I am now almost totally laptop/desktop replacement: Samsung i5; SONY VAIO i5; HP Elite Haswell i7-Quad; MacbookPro 13" Retina i5. STILL, when I am home, I do what I need with my Q9650. I don't game, but I do a lot of transcoding and BOINC. It isn't bleeding edge, but it is still a serious monster CPU.
This review is from: Canon Vixia HF R300 Full HD Flash Memory Camcorder with 51x Advanced Zoom
Pros: Fantastic in every way. External microphone and headphone jack on a camera currently sellig at 139? Even at list price, this camera is a bargain...as a Refurb, it is somply the only choice for serious videographers and casual users alike
Cons: Non-threaded lens barrel. Battery life, but, get a Wasabi battery set (2 per package + charger) for a third the price of a Canon extra capacity batteryand away you go...happy. For this camcorder, for this price, there aren't any other cons.
Other Thoughts: This camcorder gets stellar reviews from Professionals and Semi-Professionals alike, especially as a backup camcorder. BH reviews have it at 4.4-stars, with the majority of lower ratings usually given by casual users or by people who complain about battery life. The same is true of other review sites.
I use mine for storm chasing and for other stuff that places my camera at risk for breakage. I don't want to risk my professional camcorder during these sorts of adventures. Hard to believe, but, at this price, they are disposable camcorder. If it gets too beat up, you toss it.
Again, for this refurbished price, you can't beat it.
