This article is a little old because it doesn't talk about the immediate pulling of the gaming line

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Are we reading the same article?

2018-12-05_1626.png.ae3f6064092eaf0b73c93eed6b435c1a.png

 

It's an update on the fact that no, they did not pull their gaming desktops. They were delisted for a short period, but are back up for sale. That, and the article is literally only 2 hours old.

You say that like it's some big accomplishment. 

 

LTT is one of the biggest tech YouTube channels of course its going to get noticed

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

Why would they pay for the article at all?

Possibly at the reduced price point. The specs aren't bad at all, there's just some very obvious compromises they had to make which impact performance.

 

I'd say if they fixed the QA issues (better quality OEM power supply, and perhaps a better motherboard), then the OP PC's would actually be a great deal.

Not with that sketchy ass great Wall PSU. Once the GN breakdown hits we'll see.

Walmart did not pull its 'Overpowered' gaming desktop PCs from sale

I called it right from the get go.

The Walton's were never dumb!

 

Just wish the high school journalist would, at a minimum, take an English class or 12.

It is really getting worse and worse!

No wonder there are a ton of ESL classes advertised.

 

Its actually quite pathetic. How do these so called journalists even get a job writing?

Do you have a license and a vehicle?

Are you legal to work?

Are you breathing?

Ok then you can write articles for us!

 

Well if the current gig does not pan out, Yahoo is always hiring.

 

 

 

You skim LOLOLOLOLOL

Too much material, just "Fake It Until You Make It"

Walmart has data

Walmart has data crunchers

Walmart makes profit

The Waltons are not dumb!

Well Linus just got on the band wagon to cash in as fast as he could. Who ever did the first video, is the Top Dog!

"Yesterday, we briefly removed the OP desktops to update product information. They are now back on the site."

Update Product Info = BULLSHIT!

though it appears several models have dropped in price recently.

Of course, seems reasonable. Have to get the product off the shelves. Rebadge the next shipment. Profit.

 

Don't want no quick Google to come up with OverPowered results ever again!

 

This will get some airtime from the talking heads on interweb land.

Gotta cash in fast boys!

and girls

Great Wall make several Corsair power supplies, they are just generic, but not necessarily bad.

What I saw as well.

 

Quite possible they decided to edit the piece without noting that. Wouldn't want to look wrong now would they!

At least, the listed specs aren't too bad.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Those are easy things for Walmart to solve. Frankly, the case is a bit of an embarrassment, since it's so easy to solve (Have the OEM just replace the front panel USB 2.0 ports with 3.0 ports, and then the case will be pretty okay).

 

PSU is an off the shelf part, so they just need to have the OEM supply a better one - though frankly, I'm not convinced that the PSU is really going to be that much of an issue.

 

Motherboard could be an issue - especially if that's actually the cause of the CPU issues shown in the video. Re-engineer the board - or better yet, simply use a different OEM design.

 

Now... will Walmart actually take/use any of this criticism? No idea (probably not).

Power supply will work, but something equivalent to 80+ on a system that costs more than a grand? Not to much more expensive to just put in a better power supply.

 

Case is dissapointing. Change the USB headers to 3.0, push the front out further to give a way for air to draw in and add a dust filter.

 

Motherboard hurts, wouldn't be to much more money to just out in a better one :/

 

Are they the worst systems? No, but they should be much better in the quality department for the price
