ASRock Z170 Extreme7+ LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: For the price, this board has the best hardware, such as three M2 and with NVMe being the best drive I/O, you can't go wrong. Two UEFI chips, power and reset, dual CPU fan, 1150, Sata-e, thunderbolt and USB 3.1. Came with 1.70 and had zero problems. After building so many ASrock boards and personally owning so many, I don't even test run the boards, I install everything complete and start. Over 100 boards and not one problem that was actually the board, it was memory, or UEFI.

Cons: Absolutely not one with the board or any ASrock board. I'm not even disappointed with support, because if I have a problem with memory, want a new Sata Driver ( RAID ROM ) they will send me a new UEFI. When running in pure UEFI, the RAID ROM is not used and RAID uses what's called a Sata Diver in the UEFI, we do not have a BIOS, but they still call it a BIOS so not to confuse the people who are not advanced.

The ASrock website has small problems, who ever is updating it needs to go, poor posting of UEFI updating, funny, after complaining about the UEFI version numbers between BETA and WHQL UEFI along with posting SSD M2 950 support for a BETA but not the newer WHQL, ( example) ASrock removed all BETA's. Hope that wasn't my fault, but they didn't understand the complaint. I have never used any driver from the site so no big deal, but like storage support needs to be updated on the site, no Samsung M2 drives are listed, which is wrong.

***Who ever runs the ASrock website, please fire them and get someone whom is capable.***

Just a FYI for drivers for win 10.
As of this date, the newest drivers are - Chipset-, Audio - 7770, LAN- 20.7 installer, USB 3.1- 16.34.2, RST-

Other Thoughts: Looking over the reviews is sad, seems to be people blaming memory problems, or other addin hardware on the board, one was blaming the chipset on the board. At least newegg removed the tech knowledge level, as people were putting high when they had no clue. If you don't have a several memory kits, PSU, GPU, you shouldn't be building boards. Look at any MFG board and see that almost everyone has boards with poor records some of which are the people who build them. Every board made with the new chipset has the win 7 problem with USB.
There were some small problems when ASrock added SKY OC, but 2.60 has none.
***I'm not saying that there couldn't be a bad board, but usually it's not the board.***

Now Newegg needs to remove allowing people who didn't purchase the board from them to stop posting.

EVGA Z170 Classified 151-SS-E179-KR LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Classified 4-Way Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This motherboard is listed as a EATX motherboard, if you don't know what forum factors are for Mobo's don't build them yourself.
The board has everything but M2 RAID.

Cons: Very small con, when running 3 or 4 way SLI, you are requested to add the Supplemental PCI-E 6pin Power connector, which happens to be on the bottom of the board.

Other Thoughts: Not fair that the board would get a bad rap from people who have no clue what they're talking about.

SEAL SHIELD GLOW2 S106G2 Black 106 Normal Keys Gold-plated USB Wired Standard Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lighted, flat, soft.

Cons: So I've washed it for the first time by hand, and after air drying it started to not respond and the keys need to be pressed hard.

This i what happn if yo don't ps h ky had now.

This is what happens if you don't really press hard now.

Other Thoughts: Had a bad day and was sick and tired of missing letters, pushed on the number keys to hard and tore the rubber.

*** So I hurt myself on warranty. ***

I am not sure if I will buy this again or go back to the seal shield hard unlit keyboard.

If only it hadn't had a problem with washing, I would tell everyone it was the best and they had to get one.
