ASUS Z97-PRO(Wi-Fi ac) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Supports the E3 V3 Xeons out of the box - has plenty of USB connections. Very nice feature set - Can restore/upgrade the bios/uefi firmware without a CPU installed using the Green USB port and the flashback button. WiFi works quite well along with the bluetooth

Cons: Bluetooth support stinks in Win7 - should have no problems with anything bluetooth such as keyboards, mice, headphones but without drivers (MS get your act together) they're useless.

Other Thoughts: Had to replace the previous board due to dropping a CPU and borking the socket (not covered under warranty). Just had the anti-surge feature kick in due to wiggling the power cord (PSU Surge protection). Worked find though Windows wasn't happy due to the sudden shutdown. Have to chase my cat from the room :>

Rosewill RK-9000BL - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Black Switches

4 out of 5 eggs 3 months and still going strong 07/29/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000BL - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Black Switches

Pros: Solid - heavy enough to use in a Zombie Invasion (just don't forget my morning cuppa). Similar to an IBM Selectric, means I can actually type faster then one of those cheap so called Silent keyboards. Bog standard 104 key setup. Comes with both a USB and PS2 connections for older systems. Great if you have it and are USB port challenge as I am (Have 8 in the back and all in use).

Cons: Blue LED's. They annoy me
As others have said, poor mini-usb cable connection. Can be solved by replacing with a better cable.

Other Thoughts: Would have been better to hard wire the keyboard and simply include a PS2 to USB adapter though I will be getting another when they're on sale.

Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Large Capacity - Fast - Quiet

Cons: Drive was delievered on Feb 25 as part of a new build and as of March 15, it's already failed. It didn't even make 20 days of use before failing.

Other Thoughts: Thankfully, I lost no data since I don't trust any drive until 90 days have passed and this one failed in 20. It's annoying when Windows Updates forces a reboot and the system hangs because a drive is no longer responding.

In my experience, drives either fail within 90 days or they live forever - I've still got working IDE drives that are over 20 years old but the newest ones don't seem to be as well built.
