REALLY Disappointed9/22/2015 4:12:32 PM

Pros: Well-rated product. Not sure why…

Cons: Terribly invasive. I already have a Higher Power (can't use the G-word in a review, apparently. That's okay.) and It is not an antivirus product. See other thoughts...

Overall Review: This product is rated really well in survey after survey of Antivirus products so I bought it. It may be good once I get it configured to actually allow me to use Firefox. I’ve been messing with it all morning and the only time Firefox is able to start up is when Kaspersky is uninstalled. Searching Kaspersky support site is very frustrating, giving me tons of results from years back for old products and what little they have for the current versions doesn’t fix this issue. I don’t want to overstate my tech level but I am no novice. I’ve resolved much bigger issues than this one ought to be. This product should be a no-brainer to get up and running and I’ve spent hours on it. What I have noticed is just how invasive this product is. I bought the plain antivirus product rather than the security “suite” because this whole product category (from all makers) seems to have lost sight of its reason for being and has become bloatware, really. I left Norton for similar reasons. Seriously considering dumping this product (on day 1, after paying for it) and I definitely will not recommend it to anyone. What ever happened to Keep It Simple? Generally, I want an antivirus product to be efficient and quiet. I don’t want it doing anything outside the scope of what I bought it for – antivirus. Just watch what comes in and if something dirty comes along, quarantine it and let me know about it. Otherwise, just leave me and my apps alone. It does not need to put 100 different hooks into the OS or my apps and it should not prevent apps that were there before it came along from running. Avoid the Full system scan. It could take days, even when it says it’s only going to be minutes. It changes its mind, anyway. One minute it says minutes, then hours, then days, then minutes again. I haven’t waited it out. Judging how much time it spends on each file (including signed, known-good software installation cab files from well respected companies,) it will likely be at least a day to get through it. And I already know it won’t find anything. Enough is enough with the Antivirus software “security” racket. I’ll probably wind up using the free Windows Defender, plus paid-for versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and also Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit together. Probably superior protection overall, very efficient, and those products are made to focus only on their respective purposes.

Great for converting Audiobooks to MP39/15/2015 2:46:51 PM

Pros: I got this as the “missing link” needed to easily convert an Audible .AA format audiobook to .mp3 format and it works great at that. I cannot speak to its other features as that is all I intend to use it for. Maybe I’ll explore the other stuff later. Amazing price right now. I wouldn’t have known about this product or what it could do if I didn’t see it in the Newegg sale though. I saw it and its price and wondered what it is. So I did a little searching and… what a find!

Cons: It’s not the most current version. No big deal to me for converting audiobooks but the new 2016 version has new features that may or may not be worth the price of upgrading.

Overall Review: If you want to use it for converting Audible .aa format audiobooks to .mp3, you need to have (1) an Audible account, (2) own the audiobooks in your Audible account that you want to convert, (3) Apple iTunes for Windows, (4) the Audible Download Manager application, (5) This application – Audials Tunebite. Audible Download Manager downloads the .aa file and works as a plugin to iTunes to unlock the DRM for playback and CD burning. Audials Tunebite then provides a virtual CD burner for iTunes to write the output of a “burn to CD” operation to and handles all the rest of the work of turning that output into usable .mp3 file(s). Once you do it once, it all ties together pretty seamlessly and makes the process very smooth. I used to have to spend all day converting a book by burning it to several CD’s through iTunes and then converting all the .wav files and piecing them together, adding track and book information manually… it was a real pain. I learned how to tie it all together from a Youtube video by a guy named Doug Morris – video # TCFV0wnlekw – but Audials application also gives very good instructions on how to do it inside the app.

Good Products. Bad Installer.9/13/2015 2:22:41 PM

Pros: These two products are very good and should be used in addition to, not instead of, a basic Antivirus package.

Cons: The combined-product installer that I downloaded from Newegg DOES NOT WORK for me. It complains that I don't have an Internet connection. I tried temporarily disabling Windows Firewall in case it's being blocked but no change. See Other Thoughts.

Overall Review: Newegg sends product Id's and keys for both products and they can each be downloaded separately from Malwarebytes website. (The free version is the same.) Install each and activate them to the full product using the keys from Newegg. Works great after that.

Awesome cooler. Great price.8/21/2015 11:49:00 AM

Pros: Quiet and effective. Push-pull at a great price. Works well in my strange mount configuration (see below.) I really like the 2-screw, rather than a 4-screw, design for connecting the heatsink/fin assembly to the (very solid) mounting platform. A good, even fit. Fans clip on and off the heatsink/fin assembly easily – and at an offset so there’s even airflow across the fins. Looks really nice.

Cons: The copper heat pipes don’t blend together on the aluminum contact plate like they do on the 212 EVO. They’re like the older 212. Still very effective but it would be nice to see this changed in a future model.

Overall Review: This model of HP Pavilion 500 has an AMD FM2 socket. HP made the board to use an Intel backplate for the cooler - holes in a square configuration (Intel), rather than rectangle (AMD) - so many models of coolers were not going to work. Once I (forcefully) pried the old backplate off the board, this one fits perfectly with no extra rigging on my part. I did need to move it into a slightly wider case though, as HP’s case is 1/2 “ narrower than most micro-ATX mid-tower cases and this unit was exactly ½” too tall to fit in there. No fault to this unit, though. It’s HP’s proprietary design that caused the headaches here.

Great basic case with basic PSU8/21/2015 10:03:26 AM

Pros: Really nice, for a cheap case. Not for gamers / overclockers. Just for a basic PC with integrated video. Front USB ports give internal connectors for USB 3.0 or USB 2.0. Cables all just the right length. No spaghetti to try and hide. Attractive on the desk. Power supply appears to be a standard size and can be replaced with something more powerful if you add a PCIE video card. This power supply, removed new, goes for about $25 on (edit: a popular online auction site that I can't name in a review, apparently.) Can support a 120 mm fan mounted in the front to pull fresh air in. I installed one with some rubber pull-thru mounts. Works great. Allows for really good airflow and metal mesh front panel is effectively a dust filter when you do this, easy to wipe clean.

Cons: Removable side panels are very flimsy, thin metal. Be careful to install while lying flat on its side. Not ideal for a case that you’re opening up regularly. Not a con for this build, but the power supply supports only what you would need in a very basic system. (1) 24-pin power, (1) 4-pin CPU power, (2) SATA, (2) Molex peripheral, (1) Molex FDD, No PCIE. There is no 2.5” drive mount so an adapter would be needed for an SSD.

Overall Review: I used it to transplant the innards of an HP Pavilion 500 when my new CPU cooler (Cooler Master Hyper D92) was just ½” too tall to fit in HP’s narrow case. It’s a really nice fit. I’m much happier with this one than the original case. The HP case had poor airflow and was always hot. This case is ideal for a micro-ATX build with integrated video, like an AMD A-series chip motherboard, one DVD and one HDD / SSD, though you could fit more drives.

Nice sound when it's on...4/29/2015 1:06:40 PM

Pros: Nice looking. Good Sound. Not mega-bass, but sufficient for video. Good for a small room.

Cons: Energy-saving "feature" cannot be turned off. After a short period of silence, the speaker goes into a soft-standby mode and it will come out of it after a few seconds of audio sound passes, waking it from its slumber. NOT OKAY! JBL Store does not reply when I try to contact them about it. They don't seem to care.

I’m sure it’s great, but…4/9/2015 7:58:05 PM

Pros: Nice looking . Corsair Link software is supposed to be pretty nice nowadays. I read that it sucked up until a couple months ago when they released a new version. Seems like it should be pretty simple to install. It probably does a really great job of cooling. I’ll give it four eggs because I like the product even though it wouldn’t have been right for my build.

Cons: Mine was defective. A screw hole in the aluminum radiator was either stripped or had no threads, just a hole. Screw would not tighten or stay in the hole. Was missing another small but critical part that I’m sure could have been mailed out to me quickly if that was the only problem. Note that this was a new item, still factory-sealed and shrink-wrapped. Not a refurb or an open-box.

Overall Review: These defects probably were a blessing for me though, since it would not have fit nicely into my Fractal Define R4 case. It would fit but it would have to be removed anytime I needed to get at the RAM DIMMS. So It’s probably best that I returned it to Newegg for a refund, which they handled so efficiently. I love dealing with Newegg. Thankfully I did not send in the rebate form before trying to build it. I was really looking forward to using this in my new build and was just SURE it would fit since the Fractal Design Define R4 is SO roomy inside. But it’s not roomy enough up-top to fit this thing in there comfortably. So, make sure your case has enough clearance up-top for this thing. I could have used a 120mm model in the top-rear of this case, no problem. Something to think about… Once I got the thing half-way put together and found the defect in the radiator, I decided that maybe this water-cooling stuff is just over-rated anyway and went with the Cooler Master 212 EVO and built it with quieter PWM fans in a push-pull config. It’s working really nicely, keeping the CPU (AMD FX 8370) at 20C idle and rarely exceeding 50C under sustained maximum load. I wound up spending about the same money with the extra fans and probably got similar performance. No problem with Corsair, though. They make good stuff. I just got a defective item this time. It happens. It’s probably a good thing, too, because I would not have been happy with the poor fit of the H100i over the long run, anyway. FWIW, I am very happy with my new (refurb) Corsair AX760 Power Supply that I just put into this same build.

Very impressed so far. Nice PSU!4/9/2015 12:51:01 PM

Pros: FULLY Modular! All cables come in a nice storage bag so I can use just the ones that I need. 760 Watts (odd number) is way more than adequate for this machine (AMD 8370 CPU with only one AMD R9 280 GPU.) It could handle a lot more and it may outlast this build, so maybe it will need to someday. I feel confident that this PSU could actually meet a demand of what it’s rated for. The one it’s replacing (not a Corsair AX) was rated for 1000 Watts and I never felt confident that it could actually handle that load. Fan almost never runs. This is a feature that many will probably suspect is a defect. It only runs the fan when a certain load is reached. It doesn’t need to run it otherwise. That is how efficient it is. Temperature stays within acceptable levels without any fan running. Small size fits in my case (Fractal R4) without crowding out the bottom-mount optional 140mm case fan. My old power supply was too big (over 170mm deep) and only allowed me space for a 120mm fan down there. Bigger is not necessarily better… For a power supply it is very attractive and quiet. The thicker cable bundles (mobo, cpu, pcie) are sheathed in black. Peripheral cables are black flat-cable. No problems with cable lengths. Way more cables than I need for this build. Very nice! The only indication that this was a refurb unit is that it came in a (factory-sealed) brown box. Otherwise, it seemed like a new unit. I got this at a nice sale price and had an additional discount code to use so, without mentioning prices paid, I can say it was $ high-2-digits. …A steal of a deal for this product.

Cons: No cons found with this product so far.

Overall Review: I didn't really want to buy a new PSU but I felt so uncomfortable with my old power supply that I thought it was important to replace it. The old one (recycled from an old build) started running very hot, but it was still running. Power supplies are the least sexy part of a computer and, so long as it runs and produces enough power, I wouldn’t normally want to replace it. But this time I was worried that it could fail and possibly harm other components when it dies. This seems like a great product. Technologically ahead of the competition, definitely. This is not just an old design with a new paintjob and lots of marketing fluff. They have actually innovated here and I expect it will change the market for power supplies once people can wrap their heads around and have faith in the new design. I suspect they’re getting a lot of these RMA’d because people are freaking out about the fact that they don’t see or hear a fan running. I am glad it has a fan (rather than being fan-less) and I am also glad that it doesn’t need to run that fan hardly ever. Power supplies with fans running can quickly fill up with dust-bunnies, making them get even hotter. This one stays cool, calm, quiet and clean because it doesn’t need to run its fan much.

A useful tool with alot of marketing hype3/29/2015 1:22:46 AM

Pros: Recommended by HowToGeek. Several good posts from them where they talk about this product made me check it out. It's a very useful tool for sifting through the junk on our machines. I got this at an insanely low price. Look for a sale. That full retail price is too much. You can find a lightweight version of this product as a free download if you want to try it out. For me it was worth buying the full product.

Cons: It's not a miracle cure to all of my ills, like the marketing may lead me to believe. I don't believe that it makes my machine significantly faster or anything. Deleting things like internet cache and image thumbnail cache actually makes the machine slower when it needs to rebuild them. But a periodic cleaning is a very good idea. This is a very useful tool for tasks like this.

Overall Review: This tool helped me to get a handle on all the cookies, fragments of garbage left behind by incomplete uninstalls and alot of other stuff that I had been ignorant about collecting on my computer. Now I have put together lists of cookies for it to keep (because some of them are good) and can periodically clean out invalid references in the registry (be careful with that part of the tool though.) . I don't use it on startup like it wants and I don't want it nagging me all the time (monitoring) but I have it run daily on a schedule to keep certain things which I have defined in order. It's a pretty powerful tool for automating this stuff.

A reasonably priced "landline"3/24/2015 11:35:18 PM

Pros: Switched from Vonage, whose pricing has climbed up and up and up over the years. Not looking back. Ooma has Good Service. Similar to Vonage. Much less expensive for my needs. The Telo device works well, like my old Vonage box. The basic service package (a little over $5 a month – mostly tax) is all that I need but they do offer much more for those who want the extra features. Came with the free Bluetooth USB dongle but I don’t use it. I plugged it into my PC and Windows 8.1 recognized it as a "Generic Bluetooth Adapter" and installed a driver for it. So maybe it can be repurposed. Ooma made the process of moving a phone number from one provider to another (an optional service) as painless as they could. This is a “refurbished” unit. You’d never know it. It didn’t come in a pretty box but inside that plain box everything seemed brand new. And it all works great.

Cons: Not really a con against the product or Ooma but porting a phone number from one company to another (one time charge of $40) can involve some service disruption and can feel a bit stressful. Again, not blaming Ooma. The process was the same years ago when I moved my number to Vonage from my cable company. For a day or two at the cutover date, my phone number was reporting “disconnected” to callers. Good thing I don’t use the home phone much. People tend to call my cell number. But once the porting process is done, it’s done – and all works well after that.

Overall Review: I had been considering moving to Ooma for years now but the price of their Telo box had deterred me. Now that I found a refurbished unit on an amazing sale price at Newegg I couldn’t afford not to make the switch. Buy it on sale – like half the stated regular price. I think I’m gonna like this. I certainly like the lower monthly bill.

Great fans!3/20/2015 2:37:16 AM

Pros: Perfect match for the R4 Blackout Case and the black-on-black fans it includes. The 140mm fan snaps into the optional fan spot in front fan cage without any of the included mounting hardware. Other optional mount positions use mount hardware though. Comes with screws & anti-vibe rubber gaskets, alternate stretchy-rubber mounts and an in-line power reducer if you need one. Very attractive black sleeved cables. Super quiet and free of any vibration noise.

Cons: They cost a little more than some other fans and they weren't on sale when I needed them. But I think they're worth every penny, so not a con.

Overall Review: I got this 140mm and a 120mm to flesh out my new R4 blackout model case. Nicest case I've ever worked with and these fans were the perfect compliment to the setup. Fractal Design makes some really nice stuff, doesn't cut any corners and stands behind their products. The small details, the engineering makes their stuff so nice, like the little touches you find in a European car, as compared to an American car. "Wow, they thought of that..."

Great fans!3/20/2015 2:29:54 AM

Pros: Perfect match for the R4 Blackout Case and the black-on-black fans it includes. Although you can use either the 140mm fan or the 120mm on all the fan locations, this 120mm works as the bottom intake fan if power supply is too deep to use a 140. Comes with screws & anti-vibe rubber gaskets, alternate stretchy-rubber mounts and an in-line power reducer if you need one. Very attractive black sleeved cables. Super quiet and free of any vibration noise.

Cons: They cost a little more than some other fans and they weren't on sale when I needed them. But I think they're worth every penny, so not a con.

Overall Review: I got this 120mm and an extra 140mm to flesh out my new R4 blackout model case. Nicest case I've ever worked with and these fans were the perfect compliment to the setup. Fractal Design makes some really nice stuff, doesn't cut any corners and stands behind their products. The small details, the engineering makes their stuff so nice, like the little touches you find in a European car, as compared to an American car. "Wow, they thought of that..."

Awesome drive. Great deal.3/17/2015 7:34:38 PM

Pros: It's a Hitachi Ultrastar. Very dependable drive. Amazing price. This is a new drive still labeled with the Hitachi brand (not HGST branding.) Excellent quality. Well packed. Worked right out of the box.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Very pleased with goHardDrive. I would not hesitate to order from them again.

Good quality cable - cheap.3/14/2015 8:49:42 PM

Pros: They work as they should. Amazing price.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I had read of the occasional bad cable in the reviews. At this price I can afford a pretty high failure rate if I have some extras around. I needed 4 and ordered 6 in case there was a bad one or two in there. So far, I've used three of them and they have all worked great. I'll be receiving another drive soon and use another. Hopefully I'll be left two new spares.

Good cable.3/14/2015 8:37:25 PM

Pros: Really nice quality. Does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: None

Overall Review: This replaces a cable that wasn't quite long enough between my PC and my monitor when I moved the PC off of the desk. I didn't realize what poor quality that old one was until I compared it to this one. I'm impressed with everything I've gotten from this Rosewill brand so far.

Great model for this chipset (4GB)3/7/2015 5:11:02 PM

Pros: Good enough performance for most people's needs. Probably not for the serious-gamer type, but capable enough for most tasks. Choice of VGA, DVI or HDMI (just not Diplayport) Easy install. Windows 8.1 recognized it well enough before installing the software / drivers. 4 GB GB of dedicated RAM (nice find for this chipset.) Good Heatsink, no noisy fan. Would be great in a non-gaming HTPC or for most business-like uses.

Cons: None. It's everything I expected it to be. The marketing literature might over-sell its capabilities though.

Overall Review: I'm using it on a not-gaming PC at 1080P @ 60Hz and it works fine for light graphics and video playback with sound over HDMI. Fits this PC's needs just fine. If I were building a PC for heavier Graphics usage (gaming, graphic design, video editing) I would consider something alot more able for that purpose and expect to spend around $200-300. But this PC and is not for that purpose. The card's specs claim to be capable of 4K resolution but if I were investing in that, I'd be looking to use Displayport as the interface. Great for 1080P over DVI or HDMI though.

A good little power supply for the price3/7/2015 4:39:38 PM

Pros: The right size. ATX PSU's vary in size (depth) by alot. Many are too big for this case. This PSU is at the smaller end of the scale. It fits just right in this relatively small matx mid-tower case. Cables aren't too long or short. Not too much to hide. This could be a con if your case is really large and they need to be longer, though. 500 Watts is sufficient for this computer. Great price. Looks nice for a regular (not modular) PSU.

Cons: This is a con only if it matters on your PC: The 12V CPU power is done as one 8-pin plug rather than two 4-pin plugs that would plug in together on an 8-pin socket. Make sure your motherboard has an 8-pin, rather than a 4-pin socket. If you have a 4-pin socket, you would only use one of these plugs on a PSU that has two 4's. Check before you buy.

Seems fine. Priced well at time I bought it.3/7/2015 4:25:17 PM

Pros: It seems to work as it should. The concensus of reviews seemed good enough to give it a shot for the great price.

Cons: None yet.

Overall Review: I needed this for an older (but good) computer I'm rebuilding/updating to give away so I wanted a low price and this one had it that day. It should be a fine drive, considering we really don't use them as often as we used to. I would have felt more comfortable with something from Asus, who I have a good history with, but this one should be fine.

It's what you should get for the price.3/7/2015 4:11:54 PM

Pros: It works.

Cons: It doesn't fit quite like the one it's replacing. It seems a bit small for the standard 3 1/2 inch external drive bay and doesn't come out quite far enough to be flush with the front panel. The (redundant) power LED is always on because this (Gigabyte brand) motherboard provides power to the USB 2.0 ports full-time, even when the PC is turned off.

Overall Review: If this were for a computer that I intend to keep, I would have gone for a US 3.0 model from AFT. They're really nice - but pricey. Since I'm just rebuilding this older (but good) machine before I give it away, I'm trying to save some cash. Oh well.

Good stuff. Cheap.3/7/2015 3:58:10 PM

Pros: Nice pasty stuff that's easy to remove when I realize I shouldn't have mounted the CPU cooler yet in the process and need to remove it. Wipes off nicely with strong rubbing alcohol and a lint-free cloth. Plenty there to work with so I can redo it a few times. Great price for such an important item.

Cons: Printed directions with illustrations would be helpful for some people since there seems to be alot of disagreement on the proper application method if you watch YouTube videos for guidance. Not really a con but worth mentioning.

Overall Review: So many of these thermal compounds are really overpriced for what they are. Do you really get what you're paying for? I stay away from the really cheap stuff but the reviews on this one convinced me that this stuff is worth trying. And it works well. There may be some need out there for the pricier stuff but for my needs this one seems to be fine. No complaints.

Really nice fan.3/7/2015 3:39:53 PM

Pros: Quiet. Simple. Discrete. No LED's or bling about it. Just does its job well. Comes with a 3-pin-fan to Molex peripheral adapter if you need one. Fair price.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I put this in the front of a computer case that had a space for a fan but no fan installed to increase airflow in the case. It works well at drawing fresh air into the front of the case and it's very quiet.

Good... but i'd like to slow it down.3/7/2015 3:32:37 PM

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do - moves alot of air out of the case. Installed next to a hot video card, it takes the heat away at the source. It works.

Cons: I don't want to use this anymore until I get some kind of power regulator / dimmer switch on it because it blows a bit loud all of the time. Not "noisy" but the wooshing is very apparent and makes a draft in the room.

Overall Review: This is an excellent idea and if you're always running your video card full-force, it may be just what you need. But I don't need that much velocity from a fan 99% of the time, so I 'm not using it anymore until I find the right product to slow it down.

Disapointed again by SYBA. Not as good as expected3/7/2015 3:02:55 PM

Pros: It has both internal 20-pin header and 2 external ports. Comes with low-profile mounts and a SATA to Molex adapter if needed. Slightly lower in price than similar cards.

Cons: Windows immediately recognized the card (without using the included driver) but decided it wasn't working correctly. I installed the included driver, removed the Microsoft driver pointing at the device and had it re-scan. It found it and decided it was working after a reboot but when I tested it, only the external ports seem to be working. The internal 19/20-pin header seems to be dead. Not sure if it's defective but it's not worth returning.

Overall Review: I'm starting to think that all SYBA products are substandard and headache-inducing. That's sad because I really want to like them. My advice, FWIW: Spend the extra 5 bucks and get one from a more reputable name (maybe the Vantec one) of similar spec.

Nice switch! Also wall-mountable!3/5/2015 12:28:06 AM

Pros: Metal Case. Durable. Looks Nice. Really small. Wall-mountable or desktop. See "Other thoughts..."

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I am so happy to find that this nice little switch is wall mountable, something I was hoping for but did not expect. It comes with some little rubber feet you can stick to the bottom if you're putting it on a desk or shelf, but it also has holes on the back so you can hang it on a couple screws that you would supply. Really nice feature that I did not notice before buying it.

Great use for an old SSD! (or a new one...)3/5/2015 12:20:33 AM

Pros: Just popped the old SSD into this box, closed the lid, plugged in the included USB 3.0 cable and bam! It instantly showed up as a hard drive in Windows 8.1. It really was that easy.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I have an old 80 GB SSD that's really too small to be a primary disc anymore that was just siting around so I got this box and cable thing to give the old thing a new purpose. This would also work great for cloning from your old disk to a new 2,5" HDD or SSD that you would temporarily install in this box for the cloning procedure. Interesting note: When attached to my USB 3.0 port, Windows saw this particular 80 GB Intel SSD as an internal, rather than an external drive.
