This review is from: ASUS P8B-X LGA 1155 Intel C202 ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard
Pros: Was delivered on the day promised. It ends there.
Cons: When the box arrived, I examined it very carefully. Box was in good shape. As I opened the box, the packing material inside the box was standard motherboard foam cushioning. I pulled out three (3) drive cables, a book, the driver/utility CDs and then looked at the motherboard sitting in its anti-static bag. Hand-written across the front of the bag in large block letters was the word BAD. It gets worse. The seal was broken on the bag. I pulled the Motherboard out of the bag and the serial number does not match the box label. I am not liking this. On top of that, there was no protective cover on the CPU block. There is no Rear I/O Panel Shield and no alternative CPU fan bracket. I cannot put this motherboard into use without the rear i/o panel shield. How am I supposed to put this server into production to support my customers when it arrived like this?
Other Thoughts: This is the second time something like this has happened using your online purchasing service. I purposely DO NOT purchase open box items because I do not want this to happen. There is nothing on the product page mentioning refurbished or open box.
Way to go Newegg.
That's two strikes. I recommend you ship me a "verified" brand new motherboard overnight and I'll ship this one back a prepaid (by Newegg) shipping label when I receive the new one.
This review is from: Logitech MK550 Black USB RF Wireless Ergonomic Wave Combo (K350 + M510)
Pros: Mouse and keyboard both look like new.
Cons: There was no dongle in the box.I have no idea if either of these devices work without the DONGLE. The shipment also arrived with only two batteries in the box. I am disappointed with this delivery.
Other Thoughts: If Newegg will ship me the dongle so I can see if the keyboard and mouse are good enough to keep.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Board is fast - when it worked.
Cons: - NIC kept dying - only way to get it back was a cold boot and reinstall of the firmware and drivers.
- My RAIDs (brand new drives) were always in repair status or dead. Rebuilt the arrays 3 times in two weeks. If I'm afraid to put my data on the array, what good is it?
- Board kept locking up when browsing the internet.
- Board arrived with some of the settings already stepped up, rand more stable when I stepped them back to 'normal' settings. Still had the RAID dying and undependable NIC issue, so it is now RMA'd.
Other Thoughts: It's now in transit for replacement. I will adjust accordingly when the replacement is installed.READ FULL REVIEW
