BIOSTAR TZ77XE4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Overclocking is fairly straightforward.*
-Visually appealing
-I bought it more so for the layout, at least one of each slot can be used with SLI or Crossfire.
-4 SATA III connections**

Cons: -*The v droop is sort of opposite of what more popular brands implement.
-Less Biostar users compared to other brands so information is harder to find, especially for specific parts.
-The on-board Ethernet port is a bit funky on my board, sometimes the cable needs to be jiggled a bit for it to register (the connection light helps).
-**Perhaps it's the cables I'm using, but I'm not getting the full 6Gb/s with my SATA III HDDs from the connections, but the SSD is fine.

Other Thoughts: I didn't receive the orange SATA cables, I had gotten black ones; I was a bit disappointed, but it's not much of a matter.

1 egg off for every con and the cables, though if each were seperated, no eggs would be removed.

Scythe SY1225SL12SH 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs 2/3 is bad and I am sad. 10/10/2012

This review is from: Scythe SY1225SL12SH 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan

Pros: Great airflow
Not too loud for my tastes
Easily installed and comes with a 3-pin to moba adapter
1 still works well

Cons: 2 died in less than a year, the first had a hard burning smell and the last I had just happened upon. The last one was barely alive, so I tried to change the rail to see if that helped, but it just stopped dead.

Other Thoughts: I just tossed them, not worrying about the warranty; it felt as if it would be too much hassle for $16 of fans. Though, as stated 1 is still working well.

Microsoft - 32GB Zune HD (PLATINUM)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Nice 02/16/2011

This review is from: Microsoft - 32GB Zune HD (PLATINUM)

Pros: The Zune software has some nice features to it, such as the DJ Playlist*.
This Zune is durable and light with plenty of memory for tons of songs and even more pictures, but I'm not sure about videos.

Cons: The Zune software can be difficult sometimes; drivers, fileshare and some other basic things may give a more difficult time than one intended.

Other Thoughts: Overall the Zune HD is a good device once installed and setup. Subtracted an egg for the sometimes mediocre software.

*If you have music that isn't in the mainstream it can be hard to use the DJ feature.
