BIOSTAR TZ77A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Still working.
All the memory worked first try, cpu is easy to upclock using desktop adj thru Biostar included software.

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Have this board paired w/32GB 1333, i7-2700k running @ 4.4GHz, 256GB SSD os, 500GB programs, 1TB/2 data, and a 6-drive 5TB raid 5 for video storage. Drives are OCZ, Seagate hybrid, WD Black, and Seagate Barracudas respectively. Using Noctua NH-U12S for cpu, Fractel R4 case w/2 extra 14cm fans on low. Highpower raid card
So far, so good.

Creative GigaWorks T40 II 32W RMS 2.0 Speakers

5 out of 5 eggs Two years going strong 06/18/2015

This review is from: Creative GigaWorks T40 II 32W RMS 2.0 Speakers

Pros: As advertised. They shut off automatically, come back on w/a 4-sec delay with no problems.Can get mostly loud enough, clear full-range sound, tho the small woofers limit any bass, but I use these w/subwoofer (Pioneer 8") so the combo is just fine -- my previous speakers are now the L and R sides in a 5/1 setup.
Definitely worth the 79 I paid two years ago -- would do so again for that price (tho for more $, I'd look even higher) and am very satisfied so far for a computer speaker system of modest means.

Cons: Lack of deep bass, due to small woofers -- physics cannot be overcome.

SHARP DV-RW350U DVD Recorder & VCR Combo
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great little unit. 03/19/2014

This review is from: SHARP DV-RW350U DVD Recorder & VCR Combo

Pros: Does what it's designed to do.
Quiet and fairly straightforward in use,
and nice looking.

Cons: Is limited to 2x DVD-RW or 4x DVD-R discs only, as others have stated.
Those are getting harder to find.

The only problem has been its clock resets after a couple of days, now making it impossible to set long-term recording w/o rechecking that the clock is accurate.

Other Thoughts: As others have said, this is a nice combo -- I bought it elsewhere, also reconditioned about 10 years ago -- just as VCRs were disappearing from the shelves forever -- the next year they were gone.
It has served well. recording hundreds of discs @ different speeds, mostly DVD-RWs.
It also has an annoying habit of turning on its internal fan @ odd times, even when "off".
