SUPERMICRO MBD-C2SBC-Q-O ATX Motherboard LGA 775 Intel Q35
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Good board but 02/07/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-C2SBC-Q-O ATX Motherboard LGA 775 Intel Q35

Pros: There are not many decent lga775 boards left to buy anywhere. This one is one of a bare few you can get.

Cons: For one hundred and sixty plus dollars, I expect a motherboard manual and a driver CD. It is currently impossible to download the drivers from the manufacturer website. That's absolute nonsense.

Other Thoughts: Again, for a high dollar motherboard to not come with a driver cd and a manual is unheard of. Completely pathetic nonsense. If they can't provide something as basic as a driver disk, what else did they skimp on?

MSI Radeon HD 6770 R6770-MD1GD5 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It plays modern games acceptably and is short enough for smaller cases. It has DVI, HDMI, and VGA ports. The fan is quieter than I expected and it added no perceivable extra noise to my set up. MSI Control Center allows easy overclocking, temperature monitoring, and fan speed control. The MSI software allows you to record in game demos in whatever video format you choose. I bought this card for my work computer so I could do a little gaming at the office when it's slow. Borderlands2, COD3, Painkiller, etc all play just fine at acceptable frame rates at 1280x720 and most of the settings on high.

Cons: Not CrossfireX compatible. Problematic Drivers. In my entire PC gaming history, I have never known ATI to be able to write problem-free drivers. I had high hopes when AMD bought ATI. I was wrong. No catalyst driver for this card was without side-effects (laggy mouse, random crashes, 3D artifacts etc etc etc) in WXP32 for my machine. It was beyond time to upgrade my operating system anyway so W7U64 is on it now and the current catalyst driver seems to be working so far.

Other Thoughts: My system is an AMD1055t on an 880g board with 4 gb DDr3. The onboard HD4250 isn't much and not very useful for running any 3D games made in the last decade. This card made a huge difference for 3D applications. And the price: As of the time I'm writing this there really isn't another sub-100 dollar card on the market that compares. If you want to game and need to keep the price under a hundred bucks, this is not just the best choice, but really the only choice. Even considering the driver problems I had, I would buy this card again.

Winegard HD-1080 2-Bay Bowtie UHF & High Band VHF TV Antenna
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs mixed feelings 01/27/2011

This review is from: Winegard HD-1080 2-Bay Bowtie UHF & High Band VHF TV Antenna

Pros: Sturdy, small, and not too hard to put together. The size and advertised UHF/VHF gain were why I bought it.

Cons: Works great with VHF but not so much with UHF. I bought it because it's supposed to do both, so that's disappointing. Also, mine was missing the U-Bolt for mast mounting. It has the mount and even the nuts, but no U-Bolt. A trip to the hardware store took care of that, but it should have been there and I shouldn't have had to make a trip to town for it.

Other Thoughts: The instructions leave something to be desired, but if you look closely at the photo on the manufacturers website or the one here on newegg, you'll figure it out quickly enough. It was pretty easy to put together, but they should really include a photo with their drawings.
