This review is from: TOSHIBA PH3300U-1I72 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit
Pros: The hard drive itself I have no issues with. It installed and partitioned out great. I have W7-64 so I used the hardware manager and pertitioned it out to 3-1gb drives.
Cons: Where I have my issue is when I tried to register the drive with Toshiba. I have bought other Toshiba products in past like a monitor, and a laptop but that was 5 years ago. Today, I don't know what happened to them but it is not good. I spent 2 hours on system and phone trying to register a simple hard drive, but no luck. When I tried on-line it said my serial number and model numbers were not valid. I am holding the hard drive in one hand looking at the drives label with SN and model number and typing them in with the other hand, and still get "Not Valid." I even went on line, thinking maybe I did something wrong that could be cleared up with a simple call. Now I get caught up in circular support, meaning I get automated choices that keep taking me back to the same place that gets me no where. It has a 3 year warranty, but what good does that do you if you can not register it. Also, if any support software that may come along or driver is not going to help me since Toshiba does not recognize a drive they sold. This will be the last time I purchase a Toshiba product until they revamp customer support.
Other Thoughts: I normally and do not like saying negative things about products, but in this day and age, if I can not talk to some one to support the product I bought from them, then why bother.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: This is the first time I installed a board that I did not have to reformat and completely rebuild the system. I installed this Board with a Intel 4670K, and went through the BIOS setup really quickly. The features they have added to this board makes it easy to setup. When I applied power to it on the bread board it worked like a champ. I let the system do its own over clocking and it has went from 3.4 to 4.01 on its own. The board is solid bit I would use a non-static cushion under to ensure chip installation.
Cons: The box had been opened and did not have the clear wrap on it. The manual had been thumbed through. I have a feeling this was a sent back.
Other Thoughts: For the price and what this board puts out - Outstanding.
Note- Thanks to NEWEGG and FEDEX, I ordered this overnight on a Thursday before noon my time and the box was in my house by 1 PM the next day. I know I paid for over night but, that is not normally what happen s. What I saved on this board from what other vendors were asking, especially in the local area, it paid for the shipping.
