This review is from: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Once you get to OS loading screen and, in my case, Windows 7, the system is VERY stable. It has never crashed after 3 months of use.
Cons: This board takes over 5 seconds (after power button-press) just to beep. Another 30-40 seconds to get to Windows loading. I bought this board as my 6-year replacement. Every time I use the system I loose a whole minute of my life. Over the next 6 years I will have lost hours or even days waiting for the DARN BIOS (in a top of the line motherboard) to decide to finish all its checks.
(I can turn it on and go to the kitchen, grab a bowl of cereal and still make it back in time to JUST see the windows login.)
Other Thoughts: I have tweaked the BIOS extensively in an attempt to resolve the slow-boot. Nothing seems to work. I work in IT so I know what I'm doing, and unless Asus can resolve this problem, I will NOT be an advocate of this board.
Core i7 920, 750w power supply
12gig of corsair (CV List approved ram)
4-500gb drives (in a windows raid-0, not motherboard)
32gb Intel 25x-E (no fast boots for me)
932 HAF case (good case by the way, I love it)
2tb of additional storage (1.5tb seagate, 2x-320gb seagate)
Pros: IF it prints, the quality is decent.
Cons: (I support 3 of these printers-all have the same problems)As a test, yesterday, it took me 6 attempts to print, via the network, for the printer to respond. The very next print failed. When connected via USB the printer takes 2-3 min before it fails. I have tried many driver and even upgrading the firmware-nothing fixes this junk printer.
Other Thoughts: Buy something else. I think HP has had the market too long. Buy from a competitor.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GWC AS1200 USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Combo Adapter
Pros: It worked, after some troubleshoting. I only had a 40g laying arround to test it. The power cable is LONG, 10+ft in total.
Cons: The 2.5 to 3.5 IDE adapter is not foolproof, you CAN put it on backwards. The USb cable is very short (1 foot) this would not be a problem but the main assembly is very flimzy and I thought I would break the 2.5 to 3.5 adapters (I did bend the pins just removing it)
Other Thoughts: I Wish they could have shortened the power and given some of that back to the USB cable :)READ FULL REVIEW
