ASRock X99 WS LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Solid board packed with features 10/23/2014

This review is from: ASRock X99 WS LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: A solid high-quality board on Intel's latest X99 Chipset, with 8 DDR4 memory slots supporting up to 64GB or 128GB of RAM.

This board is packed with hardware, with 6 PCI Express slots (supporting 4-way CrossFireX/SLI), 10 6Gb/s SATA ports, Dual LAN, M.2 x4 support, and every connector you can think of. ASRock piled everything into this board.

It would be an excellent choice for someone who needs the best, in either a workstation paired with a good 8 or 14 core Xeon processor, or for a high-end gaming computer with a new Haswell-E i7.

Cons: This is a new chipset, and as such some people are experiencing instability problems with certain kinds of DDR4 RAM. Make sure the first thing you do when you get your new motherboard is to go and update the BIOS to ensure the best chance of having a stable build.

Other Thoughts: Note that this motherboard is in the newer LGA 2011-v3 socket, which is not backwards compatible with LGA 2011 processors! It also supports DDR4, which is similarly not backwards compatible with DDR3. So if you're coming from an older platform you'll need a new processor and new RAM for this board.

FREMO P100 10400mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad Air, mini, Galaxy S5, Note, Galaxy Tab, Nexus, HTC One, One 2 (M8), PS Vita and other Smartphones and Tablets (made by SCUD)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works as advertised - it's a giant battery that will charge up your device. Worked just fine for my iPhone, the charge was pretty quick. Construction is solid, no problems there. The indicator lights weren't blinding like many other products.

Would be good on trips/flights to keep your phone, etc. charged.

Cons: The included cable to charge the power bank was extremely short - my desktop computer doesn't have any USB ports close enough to the ground for it to rest on the ground, and the ports weren't close enough to my desk for it to sit on my desk, so it was pretty awkward to plug it in to charge it up.

Other Thoughts: It's quite heavy for its size, but still portable enough to take with you.

Seagate ST500LM021 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It is a little bit thinner than the standard, not really noticeable but definitely measurable. It's also a bit lighter.

It's fast for a laptop hard drive being 7200 RPM whereas the standard for 2.5" drives is 5400 RPM. You will notice the difference in transfer speeds. It has a 32MB cache which is double what most drives at a similar price point offer.

Seagate makes good quality drives lately so no worries there.

Cons: If all you care about is storage you can get a higher capacity drive at a similar price point, but you'd likely have to give up some speed.

Other Thoughts: On the speed vs. capacity spectrum this drive is definitely more towards the speed side. Ideal for laptop gaming if you're not going to spring for a SSD.
