5.0 out of 5 stars Still works fine on Windows 8, 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Working on Windows 8 was a big concern for me with this, so I figure it's worth confirming for anyone else who has the same worry.

I've installed it on Win 8 64bit and it runs no problem at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap PSU, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, it works fine, no issues with functionality per se.

However, it's definitely a case of you get what you pay for... The molex connectors are cheaply made and feel awfully breakable, and the ATX connector was quite bothersome to get seated properly.

It's a good amount of RAM for a reasonable price. No issues with reliability, and of course the heatinks (whether absolutely necessary or not I'm not sure) look very nice when installed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap wireless card, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fine straight out of the box, no special install procedure.

I found the fitting of the card a little tricky due to the changeable back plates for different case form factors. The end result was that it wasn't ever quite flush with the case when in the PCI slot. Securing it with the usual screw then meant that the card was ever so slightly popping up from the PCI slot. Still works fine though!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Windows, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not going to get into whether or not Windows 8 is any good as an OS, as I'm assuming that anyone who orders this knows what Windows 8 is etc...

It arrived promptly, installed no fuss, packaging was clean and simple, and COA was there and intact. Good buy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not branded, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The drive itself functions flawlessly, and seems well made. But the product description lists Samsung and the picture shows the Samsung label. The drive does not have this and so that alone is enough for a 1* rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's an anti static wrist strap, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Basically it's what it says in the name. You put it on, clip it to something grounded (I use a case with PSU installed, and the socket switched off) and you are static free. Bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good budget graphics card, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this because I am building a multi purpose PC. Part of it is for a software development project that needed multiple monitors, and the other part is a budget gaming rig.

Came in good packaging, and does everything I need it to do.

If you're building a budget gaming rig, or just need a cheap(ish) graphics boost this is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for developers, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For years my development work was completed using SQL Express, and it always worked fine (even with CPU/RAM limitations) in a dev environment. When a friend told me about the "Developer" edition I was pleased to find out that there is an affordable edition for developers to fully utilise the Enterprise features!

Would highly recommend to anyone that is working on db projects.
