i-rocks IRK01BN-BK Black 104 Normal Keys Bluetooth Wireless Slim Keyboard with Chiclet-like Key Shape
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works; fair range.

Cons: Does not come with USB Dongle, so the device you're hooking it up to must already be Bluetooth capable or you're going to need a separate Bluetooth Dongle.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't say that it comes with a Dongle, but there's no information stating you need one either. I would hazard to guess that MOST people are buying this for a Desktop computer, and if you're one of those people, this review should prove useful.

ASRock G41C-GS LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs ONLY LIKES SOME RAM 02/24/2014

This review is from: ASRock G41C-GS LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Doesn't recognize Kingston HyperX XMP Blu Red Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model KHX16C9B1RK2/8X, and when I say doesn't recognize, I mean the computer motherboard will not POST or beep to indicate faulty RAM.
Doesn't beep when it POSTs with PC Speaker Connected
Bad support from ASRock. I was advised to try a new CPU, which I did and spent $42 only to have it NOT fix the problem, because the problem was incompatible RAM. This isn't ASRock's fault, but it's not mentioned anywhere in the product specs. ASRock rep told me I should have used better RAM, and that I purchased a low end motherboard. Really?!?

Other Thoughts: The board did POST with a 1GB Hynix DDR2 stick and I now have replacement RAM on the way that I HOPE will be compatible. It's G-Skill, which is what their tech support rep advised.

I've used ASRock boards in the past but after this experience with them wasting my time and money and disparaging against Kingston RAM stating that it's "low end cheap RAM," I won't be buying one of their boards again.

WD Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVT 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work. 3 Month warranty because they know these things are junk; if they were properly re-certified to be as good as new than they'd come with a normal warranty. Sadly, these drives are junk, and I'll think twice about ever purchasing a re-certified hard drive from Western Digital again, and opt to purchase a drive from a company that stands behind its products.

Other Thoughts: Drive purchased to replace a faulty drive in customer's laptop. After installation, drive seems to lose the ability to boot the OS after about 3 days. Windows reinstalled several times but problem just keeps on happening. Computer boots normally with a different drive. Also this drive passes all tests from WD's Data Life Guard utility; so according to WD, this drive is fine . . . . right until you try to use it.
