2.0 out of 5 stars Would have been a great item - if it had worked., 26 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellently spec'd product which unfortunately didn't work and had to be sent back. Spent the whole afternoon and then some trying to access the 'Settings' menu in order to get the product configured. The instruction booklet specified pressing the 'Up' button to access this but it was not possible to access the 'Settings' via this method. A blue window appeared but the actual settings were not accessible. So, in desperation I tried via the WiFi option but neither of the supplied apps was able to add the camera to their 'camera lists'.

I don't consider myself stupid when it comes to configuring electronic items (I'm a qualified computer professional) but this defeated me and my patience isn't unlimited. Either the camera was faulty or the instruction manual was misleading - either way the item is being returned.

Looks a good quiet fan. It was my fault for not checking that this 120 sized fan would not fit my 90 case. Amazon gave no quibble refund.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great graphics card which has speeded up my games significantly (XCOM 2 now being playable at last!). Only reason it doesn't get. 5 star is that the HDMI socket is very close to the card edge meaning it wasn't possible for me to use a retaining screw to fix the card to the casing. Otherwise vey pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, 1150 socket motherboard, 24 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice, 1150 socket motherboard. Despite its low price it has enough sockets and connectors to handle my fairly demanding hardware requirements adequately. The BIOS, or UEFI as it is now called is fairly intuitive and highly configurable once you research the configuration options. NOTE: there is a potential big GOTCHA for those using legacy hard drives which I think is common to most modern/UEFI boards. The default SATA setting Is set to ACHI. You may need to set this to IDE to get Windows to boot successfully.

Finally, the documentation is excellent and made installation unusually straightforward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great processor - a few notes about upgrading your M/B, 24 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good processor but a few things to remember.. if like me you didn't research things to the nth degree.

1. I upgraded from a Intel 'G' series and had to buy a new motherboard to fit the processor - it uses a LGA1150 cpu slot rather than the LGA1155 for my older processor
2. The new motherboard used AHCI for the SATA hard drives and I continually got the dreaded BSOD cycle until I reseached my HDDs should be using IDE.

As I wrote this is nothing to do with the quality of the processor, which is excellent, but hopefully these points can guide you if you upgrade from an older Intel processor.

Season 5 was the weakest of the Babylon 5 series. However it is still worth viewing again with one or two standout episodes hidden amongst the more mundane stories.
