This review is from: MSI 790GX-G65 AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: The on-board graphics works well for my music production machine and supports dual displays. (I am using the VGA and DVI ports, but assume you can use any combination of the three) I find everything else about the board pretty typical, solid construction, decent layout etc.
Cons: One TINY thing basically not worth mentioning - my on-board reset button doesn't work; it seems the center part of the plastic button that contacts the switch is jammed or something. Not worth removing the board from the case to inspect.
Other Thoughts: I have paired this motherboard with the Phenom II 955.
*for those interested in audio production/recording capability of this board/processor combination* I use the EMU 1616m PCI audio interface with FL Studio and with ASIO latency running at 3ms. (lowest available with the 1616m is 2ms) Mainly recording audio from bass guitar and drums as well as MIDI data from the drum and keyboard controllers.
Overall I find this board to be a relatively low cost base to a very capable and upgradable system.
This review is from: HAWKING HAC30N N-Plug Outdoor Cable Extension 30 feet for Outdoor Antenna kits
Pros: Has a tough outer layer, I threaded it through a steel enclosure with very little abrasion to the cable.
Other Thoughts: There was just one this that I was concerned about when purchasing; the product description and manufacturer's data says "n-plug to n-plug" which sort of makes it sound like the connectors on each end are identical. They are not identical, one is male (n-plug) and the other is female (commonly called n-jack), just as you would expect from an extension cable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought 8 sticks for use in four seperate systems, all 8 came in fully working with no errors.
Cons: Haven't seen anything bad yet.
Other Thoughts: The systems are running Vista Home in an office environment and originally only had 1gb of ram each, after adding two of these 1gb sticks to each machine the users are much happier with their 3 gig total. (Granted they still get bown away by our XP machines the same exact specifications and only 1gig ram.) I have 5 more systems that may need upgraded, and I will probably buy this memory again for them.READ FULL REVIEW
