Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast

Cons: Lasted 22 months in a cool 24 hour system. No warning before failure. Check the failure rates on this thing. This is pretty much the least reliable drive from a big name you can buy right now.

ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: proper pci-e 11ac adapter
neat looking pcb/heatsink

Cons: Refuses to connect to any router. On the rare instances that it does connect it performs well for anywhere between 20 seconds to 20 minutes before cutting out again. Over the past two weeks of having this adapter I've had it successfully connect twice since this issue came appeared.

Other Thoughts: RMA'd pce ac66 due to compatibility with z87. I've had to use my emergency 11g usb stick since I built my z87 because of the neverending headaches of incompatability, waiting for delayed product launches, and then getting faulty hardware. I've had a lot of email correspondence with asus reps and they're helpful to the point that they don't ignore me and rma my purchases when they're bunk. If there was another pcie 11ac option I'd have taken it already.

ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs great budget card 09/14/2011

This review is from: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: -excellent price
-as good as you'll need
-headphone amp
-uni drivers are incredible

Cons: -died within 3 weeks
-costs 10 dollars to RMA

Other Thoughts: ASUS can spend an extra few hours to perform burn in tests. Infantile failures like this should never ever happen and it's a waste of time and money for the consumer, producer, and retailer. This really irks me because it was such a great card and I was thinking to myself "ASUS really got it right by charging what the card is actually worth". I guess I was wrong. I'm truly concerned if my RMA will even go over well. The shipping cost alone is insane (10 dollars, art thou jesting?) but that coupled with the fact that newegg is out of stock on this item and that I threw out the box last week I have a feeling even more of time and money is being wasted.

It's unfortunate but the bottom line is if you have an onboard solution and you aren't in the audio industry don't waste your time and money on a dedicated card.
