Pros: Its pretty, has all the stuff you need to be a nice board. Love the audio out, the placement of the card connectors and I also love the software, Al Suite is pretty awesome. The bios upgrade doesnt work. The bios itself is easily understandable, and I had this board up and running in minutes. I like that!
Cons: About 6 months into my ownership, the fan controllers started whacking out, running all my fans at full speed. Called Asus, they offered to replace it, and they sent me another rebuilt faulty board, i called them back, and got another rebuilt board with the same thing. Not to mention, you have to put your credit card up for collateral, while your waiting for a replacement. I am going to call today, for the 4th replacement board. I really am dissapointed in ASUS. I was really excited to get this board. It saddens me to write a review like this.
Other Thoughts: Look, I loved ASUS. But as soon as you pull up fan M5A97, everyone has issues with the fan controllers on this board. I would think, we could call it a LEMON board. Asus should make this right for those of us who have had issues and either fix the problem, or replace the board with another product. I dont know how companies get away with products that dont work. And I empathize with the service dept at ASUS. Im sorry, but this board just isnt a very good product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: With 20 dollar rebate, this was 29.99. Its a really nice case, sturdy, and the fans are quiet. I wish it had more HD banks, and I dont like the HD connectors being on the reverse side of the case, making you have to take both sides of the case off to service them. I want to disable the fan lights, I see no need for them.
Cons: Being a HUGE corsair fan, and I have spent a lot of money with them. This case is nice, and the fans are quiet. This product was supposed to give a 20 dollar rebate, but they only sent me 10. I sent them an email and called, and they blew me off. Now, 10 bucks isnt a lot of money, but stealing 10 bucks from me makes me mad, and its just the principle of it. This is exactly why I hate rebates. They bank on the people that dont send them in. In this case, my dealings with Corsair, are done.
Other Thoughts: New Egg is a Stand Up Company. They immediately gave me a 10 gift card. I have to say, once again, I love NEW EGG!! I only wish they would start looking at these vendors, and making them accountable for lying and stealing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Might be cheap, but you get what you pay for! I have used kingston brand for years, they used to be great!
Cons: So, now, if you have a product, and you dont KEEP the receipt, and it dies, they will send you another, but shorten your warranty to 60 days. So you loose your warranty.
Other Thoughts: Lots of kingston parts have come across my desk. Lots of other have too, but I have never had the misfortune of dealing with a company who have NO regard for the customer. I would much rather deal with a company that stood by the customer, and the product, These people fall short!READ FULL REVIEW
