New 65W AC Adapter+Cord Charger for Dell Inspiron 14 1401 M5040 N301z N5040 N5050
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap. It works. Confirmed compatible with N5050.

Cons: It's more lightweight than my old AC adapter. Normally that'd be good, but sometimes weight is a sign of material quality.

Of course, I've now had TWO official Dell AC Adapters that have both developed undervoltage-spike problems after several months, so... it's not like this one has to work hard to be better than that.

DIAMOND XtremeSound XS51 5.1 Channels 16-bit 48KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

1 out of 5 eggs Doesn't work on Windows 7 12/19/2013

This review is from: DIAMOND XtremeSound XS51 5.1 Channels 16-bit 48KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: None.

Cons: It doesn't work on Windows 7. At all. Somehow I got the sound going (once), but the quality was awful. The rest of the time, silence.

Thinking myself well prepared by the other reviews that mentioned driver issues on Windows 7, I tried the CD drivers, the Diamond website drivers, and the CMI8738/C3DX drivers. Nothing. Also, included for free, the odd behavior of sound files refusing to play, and Youtube videos hitching/freezing/crashing.

I tried emailing Diamond support. After 4 days, they just pointed to the Diamond website drivers. Thanks. Because my original query didn't mention that the Diamond website drivers are faulty or anything.

Other Thoughts: I know it's hard to find a good sound card at this price point. Keep looking.

(I admit, you may have a different experience if you're not running Windows 7, but I can't test that.)

ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Full featured for bargain price 11/17/2013

This review is from: ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Well, look, it's a motherboard. The first thing you need to do is make sure it will support all the stuff you want to attach. That being said, the Z75 should cover most of your bases unless you absolutely need 3 standard PCI ports.

I've not had any problems whatsoever working with the board. The BIOS is full-featured for overclocking and tweaking, and it's got all the modern (as of this writing) fixings with USB 3.0 and PCI-E 3.0.

Cons: The PCI and PCI-E slots can get a little crowded depending on exactly what you're putting in there. If you don't plan to use two video cards, but want to fill all the PCI slots with other stuff, you might be putting cards directly adjacent to each other, which could be bad for heat and airflow. A different board might have the slots more spaced out.

Other Thoughts: It's like a $200 board at a sub-$100 price.
