ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great looking Motherboard. Works only with the QVL list RAM which is not a huge list.

Cons: VERY picky about RAM. Only buy whats on the QVL listing. I tried this RAM and I could not get booted.

Other Thoughts: Asus needs to make their motherboards less finicky about what brand/types of RAM it will take. There are a lot of RAM brands, types that plain just won't work with this board when other mobo's of different manufacturers using the same chipset will work. Asus customer support sucks. Their answer to everything is update the bios. If you tell them you are missing a back plate, they will tell you to update the bios. If you are missing a cable, they'll tell you to update the bios. If you can't boot up, update the bios. If you can't POST, update the bios. No power, update the bios.........

ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, 2 USB 3.0 SharePort
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks great, Gigabit, and Easy Web based interfaced system. Very simple to set up and get online and set up wi-fi. Working great, its Dual band so my computer can be on the 5ghz band and kids PSP, iPod's, etc can be on the low band.

Cons: Heat. The system is a little tipsy turby when you have 3 LAN cables plugged in, constantly wants to tip over with any stress is put on the cables. Gets Hot, hope it last.

Other Thoughts: I bought the NewEgg extended 3yr warranty. Last router I got was a Netgear and it died right at the one year mark when the warranty ran out. I guess heat was the issue with the Netgear N600's. Since this thing is small, heat will be a problem so I got the extended warranty just in case.

OCZ Vertex 2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fairly reasonable price <$100 on sale. Fast, installation was pretty easy

Cons: Only 60gb and SSD's still pretty expensive.

Other Thoughts: Installed this in My ACER ASPIRE 7552G-6061 laptop, running Windows 7 Home Edition no problem. Boot up time super fast, no compatibility issues so far. Windows 7installed super fast. Only really enough space for Operating System and utilities, can fit only about 1 game after that.
