Pros: Once it boots though, it works flawlessly. Love the high quality feel.
Cons: My first Gigabyte board in some time may be my last. This board had great reviews, so I decided to finally try something other than Asus and I'm starting to regret my decision. I've tried every BIOS they have for this board yet I get constant boot loops. It's so frustrating to have to struggle with something as simple as booting up my computer. Once I get it going sure it works fine, but I hate that I fear shutting down my computer. I disabled sleep and try to keep my computer running 24/7 just so I won't have to power down and have a nightmare getting it to boot up. I've tried various PSU/RAM/GPU/USB devices, I blamed the MB last while trouble shooting and it just being an expensive mistake.
Other Thoughts: Sadly, it looks like the only way Gigabyte responds to tech support is by writing a negative review. I would have given GB the benefit of the doubt if they'd respond to my email but I guess I have to resort to this to get my board replaced.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Back before FW:0007 they were solid drives. Dependable and fast.
Cons: Ever since the 0007 update, they have developed a horrible sleeping bug. Most people use this drive as a primary drive, so it crashes on them. I use an always dependable Intel SSD as my primary (never had a sleep crash) so I got to see my computer wake up, but Intel RST would tell me drives had been removed. Well sure enough, every time it was my 2 C300's that vanished. Sometimes one, sometimes both at once. Rebooting the computer wouldn't bring them back. You need to do a shutdown and boot back up, the drives come back, no data lost. Sometimes, if my computer was inactive but not in sleep for a while, it would drop the drives without entering sleep mode.
Since sleep mode is vital in modern laptops/desktops, I would not recommend this drive. Sure maybe on paper they are faster than the Intel X25M g2's and 320's i've begun to replace them with, but at least they can handle sleep mode without crashing on me.
Other Thoughts: Don't bother going to the crucial forums for support, your best bet is to avoid 0007 like the plague. The only thing that will happen on the crucial forum is that you and your hardware will be blamed, their mods will act as if you're the first to ever bring up this mysterious problem. Their support forum is laughable, you're only accepted there if you go there to praise them.
I wish Newegg carried more 1.8" drives from Intel (higher capacity) as I want to replace the C300's in my Vaio Z
This review is from: JVC HA-FX300B 3.5mm Gold-Plated Connector Canal Black "Bi-METAL" Structure Headphone
Pros: My shure e2c's fell apart on me (no knock on them, i did abuse them) so I went looking for another pair of headphones, but didn't really feel like paying a Shure price since I just use my mp3 player @ the gym. Well, despite finding little in the way of reviews for these JVC's I went with them hoping for the best and I'm glad I did. These headphones are amazing esp if you factor in the price. They sound just as good if not BETTER than my e2c's and they are SOOOOOOO much more comfortable than the shure's. Bass is strong without being over powering and the clarity of the mid's and high's is great. Highly recommended. With my shure's i always thought it would be great if my Zune had equalizer settings to fine tune the sound, but with these I hadn't even missed that feature. The all metal construction looks to be far more solid than the plastic shure's that cracked on me too.
Cons: the cord is a little bit on the short side, it's zero problem when i'm running (actually prefer it to the longer cord of the shure) but when plugged into the workout machine's tvs, i do wish the cord was as long as the shure's
Other Thoughts: good looking, strong metal casing, great sound.READ FULL REVIEW
