ECS X77H2-A3 v1.2 LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks nice and well built, packaged well, plenty of cables, manual seems to have enough info to install and operate the motherboard. Really flies with -5-2500k and 16gb and SSD.

See the "gotchas" below, but I would buy another if I upgrade another PC.

Cons: I had the same problem another owner had, installed Win 8.1 rebooted, nothing, just dead. Pulled memory and swapped around, no help, shorted bios to clear and it booted. The BIOS has a "Windows 8" setting, I changed it back to Windows 7 and it has worked flawlessly since.

CPU, ram, SSD and PS came straight out of a working Z68 motherboard, so they are known good.

The cute little orange heat sink is right in the way of my video card, really had to push down to lock the card in place. Lock on memory card feels unsecure / cheap. If you have a Radeon 6xxx it may touch the heat sink. If your video card won't seat, the MB may appear dead.

Other Thoughts: Bridge heat sink is too tall and can interfere with the video card. Beware BIOS settings can cause no boot - seriously just completely dead - short the bios jumper and try other settings. I would guess there will be BIOS updates coming...

Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps/ Compatible with Open Source DD-WRT (not pre-load)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Gave away an older WRT54GL to get a fancy new faster router. BIG MISTAKE. The Linksys was rock solid and never gave any trouble. Fancy new router survived just out of warranty. Bought a new WRT54GL, flashed to DD-WRT and it works perfectly.

Cons: Not the fastest router. Have to do real work now instead of spending hours / days troubleshooting my network or attempting RMA's.

Other Thoughts: Looks like you have to trade speed for reliability. I'll take the reliability.

TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It will operate for at least 90 days

Cons: Managed to operate for 92 days, 2 days past newegg warranty ! Now I have to deal with the manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: Highly not recommended.
