MSI X79A-GD45 Plus LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs But does it work with Ivy Bridge-E? 09/20/2013

This review is from: MSI X79A-GD45 Plus LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great features for the price, supports TPM, MSI has TPM chips in stock, claims to support IVB-E.

Cons: Board would power on but not POST/provide video output, verified video card was good, tried another video card that didn't require power from the power supply (5570), tried different cables, out of ideas, ram and gfx card work in old build. Wondering if these are still shipping without BIOS support for IVB-E...hope MSI tech support chimes in, as I'd like to use their board (due to TPM) but really don't want to buy a SNB-E chip to do so.

Other Thoughts: Bought from another e-tailer since Newegg was out of stock when IVB-E launched.

Been waiting a while to build something like this, hope tech support can help me get it to work.

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q USB TV Tuner Stick/Hybrid Video Recorder with Remote Control
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Good way to get Satellite TV on a Laptop 09/10/2013

This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q USB TV Tuner Stick/Hybrid Video Recorder with Remote Control

Pros: This is a great way to get satellite tv on your laptop. I did this so I could avoid purchasing a TV while I was deployed but still get AFN. Comes with a remote.

Cons: Software is finicky, don't use plug n play or windows update for drivers - use the supplied disk. Would give 4.5 eggs if that was an option.

Other Thoughts: All in all, satisfied with this purchase.

StarTech ECUSB3S254F 2 Port Flush Mount ExpressCard 54mm SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works as advertised, fixes major oversight by dell 04/28/2013

This review is from: StarTech ECUSB3S254F 2 Port Flush Mount ExpressCard 54mm SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter

Pros: Gives me USB 3.0 speeds for accessing a 2 TB 2.5" external. The PCI-E lane on my Dell XPS 1645 powers the HDD too. Observed sustained 60MBps data transfer to and from the HDD, which should be around the max for this little drive. Fits flush with the slot and fills the whole slot, so it looks good, too.

Cons: None to speak of, may need external power for some 2.5" drives in some systems, or 2 2.5" drives

Other Thoughts: Managed to fix a major oversight by Dell (USB 3.0 was new in 2009, but hey, it was a top of the line laptop).
