Pros: Its shiny. But for how long?
Cons: Had finger prints and a scratch on the case before I even took it out of the packaging.
Other Thoughts: Not sure if this was a refurbished case I had or if someone decided to try out this case but as I mentioned above, the case has a few finger prints on it as well as a few small scratches on the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I must say I almost bought it's smaller counterpart but I wanted something bigger. I'm glad they came out with a larger model! The base doesn't take up the whole desk like other monitors do. The color out of the box was a little too warm for my taste. Maybe because I'm used to a monitor with saturated colors. Went from 19" Westinghouse flat panel to this. Worth every penny!
Cons: The connection between the monitor and the base are kind of flimsy feeling but how often does the average person adjust their monitor?
Other Thoughts: Cudos to newegg for shipping the monitor out the day I placed the order. Got here a day early! Monitor comes with everything you need to get it going including HDMI cable and a VGA cable. Didn't come with a VGA to DVI converter but I had one on hand so no biggie! You won't be disappointed by this monitor! Enjoy!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: None yet.
Cons: The first board I got with my initial purchase made a hissing noise accompanied by system instability and crashes whenever the processor was under any kind of load. I RMAd the board and the replacement they sent me won't power on. The only way to power it on is to UN PLUG the 8pin ATX12v that powers the CPU which results in the system not posting.
To be sure this one was faulty, and because I hadn't sent out my old board to ASUS yet, I decided to drop my processor back in the old one and breadboard it. There was still a hissing noise but it powered on and posted!
To top it off, the majority of the pins on the new board for the various fan plugs and front panel I/O ports were bent and the on board heatsink for the heatpipe had one of the pins come off and the other one broken but barely hanging on.
I'm honestly not sure why I even went with an ASUS MOBO when the last one I had, roughly 4 years ago, crapped out on me just outside of warranty. It seems they've yet to learn their
Other Thoughts: This is completely unacceptable for a product that one spends $300 for! I am extremely disappointed with ASUS and if I could go back in time, I would sucker punch myself in the face and tell myself to go with GIGABYTE instead.
If you want terrible customer service and support and when you DO actually get service, its utterly terrible, get an ASUS board!
I can understand a product being faulty. With computer parts its very much a hit and miss in the quality area. Especially with something as complex as a mother board. But if I were ASUS and I were sending an RMA to an already upset customer, I would make every effort to ensure that that replacement is spot on.
There's nothing more disappointing than getting something that doesn't work when it was meant to replace something that doesn't work.
To be honest, I think I'll just take the $300 hit and take it as a lesson learned: ASUS just doesn't know how to make a quality product. Never have.
