This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Once everything was assembled, it booted right up
O.C.'s better than my old Asrock P67
CMOS reset feature on the back of the board really comes in handy.
Cons: The bracket for the CPU heatsink interferes with the bracket that holds the CPU in place. Took an hour to get everything lined up and working.
Watch out for those plastic covers on the mobo heatsinks, if I hadn't been paying attention I would have never noticed them
The smaller design really worries me, as the 24 pin as no support and removing or replacing the connector could damage the board
Newegg free shipping sucks, took eight days to cross two states
The BIOS mouse support is sketchy and innacurate
Other Thoughts: For a budget i5/1155 replacement board for the one (Asrock) that failed, this was a good dealREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hamilton Beach 40715 Espresso Maker
Pros: Decently put together for Chinese cheapos.
Cons: The box, manual, web picture etc never points out the fact that it does not come with the glass espresso cups. My girlfriend really enjoyed the machine, but the fact that she has to go out and buy small cups for it really annoyed her, and frankly, made me question why newegg doesn't point that fact out on the product's page. Buyer beware, if you buy this as a gift you will also need to buy the glassware separately.
Other Thoughts: If I had known that it would not include everything pictured, I would have gone out and purchased some cups.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Immediately after receiving the product, I plugged it in and installed the drivers. I've tried the latest realtek drivers and the Azio drivers and although the device installs fine, the connection is shoddy at best. Normally I use a laptop and run ICS for my connection, it's wireless N strength is above 90% and rock solid. This USB device will not even allow me to access the internet in N mode, and is horribly inconsistent in G mode. Network and Sharing center shows 300mbs and internet connection. As far as the device overheating, I have noticed it gets hot, but as there is little to no traffic going through it in N mode, I can't comment on it dropping the connection.
Other Thoughts: DHS shipping is a joke. Took 9 days to arrive, and new egg is only two states away...never again.READ FULL REVIEW
