This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5037C-I Pedestal Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C202 DDR3 1333/1066
Pros: Nice case.
Cons: Put in single 4GB memory stick (Kingston KVR13N9S8H/4). Booted up once, everything seemed fine. On next boot, I got the six beeps indicated "no memory". Thought maybe it was picky about this memory, ordered Crucial CT51264BA160BJ). Same problem, no memory recognized. Now I'm 3 days from the return date, and it's not worth shipping 3-day express. Guess I'll try another motherboard.
Other Thoughts: Very disappointing for a Supermicro product; I've had great success with them in the past. Others have written about this board being memory-picky; my experience seems to indicate it's got some kind of fatal flaw there. Pick another server.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAVPower 36W/7.2A 4-Port iSmart USB Wall Charger / USB Desktop Rapid Charging Station for iPhone 6 plus, 6; iPad; Galaxy; Kindle; Nexus; Nokia Lumia; HTC; LG; External Battery Packs and More (White)
Pros: 4 powerful ports
Cons: Super bright blue LED. No way to turn it down / off. Lights whole room at night. Black tape over it barely surpresses it. We're talking LOUD here!
I am tempted to stick a soldering iron into it until it dies, but it would probably short it.
Other Thoughts: Still, it's a great product for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI A55M-P33 FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Pros: None. Incompatible with FM2 CPU that was sent in the bundle.
Cons: Only works with old FM1 amd CPU.
Other Thoughts: This isn't really a knock on the product, but you can't seem to rate Newegg themselves. I ordered a "shell shocker" combo (CPU, mobo, memory, HD and case) and they sent me a mobo/CPU combination that is incompatible. When I contacted Newegg about the problem, they said they aren't responsible for compatibility!
So beware these combos - YOU need to verify compatibility. I don't know whether they're going to let me return the mobo or not, but if they don't I'll find some new places to complain...
