Pros: Great monitor. Beautiful picture, color, clarity and resolution. Never a dead pixel so far. Can't go wrong with this monitor. Have purchased 5 of these for my customers and they all have rave reviews and nothing but good things to say.
Cons: Speakers and volume are a bit weak. But they do ok for what they're needed for (normal Windows sounds, etc.).
Other Thoughts: Have seen this a bit cheaper over at a competitor recently with free shipping.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice little mini ITX board with lots of features
Cons: This mobo kept waking up from sleep after about 3 seconds once shut down. Read that the EHCI handoff in the UEFI (bios) being the culprit, but could not resolve it running Linux for a HTPC with XBMC. So, had to RMA the board for refund to get a different brand. Then to my surprise, I received an email from Newegg when they got the RMA: "... the item was physically damaged and beyond the applicable Newegg.com warranty coverage as indicated in our Standard Warranty Policy. We received the motherboard with several severely bent pins which were beyond repair. The damage possibly occurred from improper installation." WHAT!?!?! Absolutely not true!! Board was fine and I've never damaged a board of the hundreds of PC's I've built - over 30 years of working in computers. So, have to offer a poor review on Newegg's customer service for this one since no refund. Not what I expected from this company after so many loyal years of purchasing thousands of dollars from them. I guess it's over to a competitor even if I have to pay a bit more.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI B85I LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Pros: MSI makes some good boards. This one had some good features for a mini ITX at a reasonable price. Great Newegg customer service as usual.
Cons: As soon as I got the board, there was a small metal part lose out of the bag. Found where it went on the motherboard and was able to put it back on, but strange first impression. As I was setting up the PC I was a bit disappointed to see there was only one internal USB 2.0 port (as my mini case had 4 on the front). When got the PC all setup and turned it on, it stated memory change detected (which I have never seen on NEW boards - only when swapping or changing memory on previously setup board). This tells me that the motherboard sold here by Newegg was used! Ended up that I had issues with this motherboard (possibly why it was returned and maybe resold??). Had to RMA it for a refund.READ FULL REVIEW
