Pros: I purchased this board to go in my music production rig (also used for backups). It has everything I needed, slots for my graphics card (x16), network adapter (x1) and audio interface (PCI). I have my SSD boot drive in the 6gb/s SATA plug, which is from the chipset and therefore not gimped at all. Currently using 2x8GB RAM and a Xeon E3-1230 V2, and the performance is only matched by the stability. No BIOS issues.
Cons: None really. I was going to say some things pertaining to chipset limitations but honestly the price reflects the fact that this is B75, and I'm perfectly OK with that. Another reviewer mentioned how tight the power connectors fit, I recently did a transplant and my 24-pin took *a lot* of effort to remove.
Other Thoughts: I read some of the negative ratings for this board, and while it looks like there's a few DOAs, a lot of people don't realize that of course you cannot overclock, and of course you don't have SRT . Please do research on the product before buying!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: PCI Slot (Yes, some people still use those!)
The other various pros regarding power delivery that you can read from all the other reviews of this board.
Cons: The UEFI. Good heavens, where to begin. when you first enter it, it loads up a big picture of a motherboard and you have to click on various parts of it to go to a "relevant" menu. I do not know who thought this was a good idea. It can't even render smoothly because there's not nearly enough graphics power at this part of the boot sequence!
Other Thoughts: I came to this board from a Rampage IV Gene that crapped out (and I didn't like the form factor anyways). I did a fresh install of windows onto my system and now I can't even get into UEFI when I have more than one monitor plugged in. It's a real pain to have to unplug my other three monitors when I want to change OC settings, boot order, or when I get an "Overclocking Failed" error message, which, by the way, I started getting right from the start, even before I touched anything!
My advice to Gigabyte: Focus on making your UEFI functional before adding all sorts of bells and whistles that actually hinders user experience anyways.
My advice to consumers: After experiencing the X79 iteration of the Asus ROG boards, I cannot recommend this product.
This review is from: Cuisinart SS-700 Keurig K-Cups Single Serve Brewing System Silver
Pros: Compared to other Keurig models on the market, this is the best. I've owned several different Keurig models and this one lasted the longest (and has the best feature-set).
Very good warranty. And don't worry, you will use it, many many times.
Cons: These darn machines die way too quickly. I brew around 6 cups a day, and I have yet to own a machine that lasts a full year. Just one year!
I do not want to have to run 60 oz. of vinegar (plus 60 more to rinse) through a kitchen appliance every month just to keep the pump from burning out.
Other Thoughts: Paying $200 for a kitchen appliance that brews average-quality coffee is bad enough, but the fact that these machines are made with low-quality parts is just a slap to the face unfortunately.READ FULL REVIEW
