Intel 730 Series 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: purchased for my ASUS g750 laptop, that I purchased with a standard 5400rpm disk, and the free migration tool works great with some tweeking, which I will explain later, but after the transfer, I had no issues with the system accepting the new drive, and my system now boots up in less then 10 seconds.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: the only problem I ran into was with intels free migration tool, and the problem only came because asus created on the factory 1TB harddrive, an OS partition and a data partition, and the program doesn't allow you to not copy a drive partition, if there are 2 partitions on the disk, it has to create 2 partitions, with a minimum size of 80MB. To get around this, I simply had to delete the data partition in disk manager, which allowed me to ignore that space to create 1 system partition and then the other system recovery partitions asus had.

Pros: great memory, never had any problems, especially with G.skill. Replacing 4 gig kit of 6400 from original MOBO build. (memory was still good, but i switched motherboards/processor and used the old one to build another system to use as a server, so i had to buy memory and thought, might as well buy the faster memory for my new mobo)

Cons: none so far, unless you count the price. ( i dream of the day were state of the art memory is only $10 a gig, but we all know that will never happen)

Other Thoughts: Purchased to replace my 6400 kit from a 3.2 ghz Pentim D build to a 3.0ghz core 2 quad build and since i had to purchase a set of memory for the server, decide to get the higher speed since my new board supported it and the old didn't.

Also, i never OC'ed, but that is because any bios changes i make caused my post to fail so I have to reset all changes made. I don't know why I have this problem, but it isn't a result of the memory.

Set up:
ASUS P5Q-E LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 Yorkfield 3.0GHz LGA 775 95W
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
WD rapter 150GB
Visiontek 3800 series graphics

Microsoft XBOX 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Check Routers N type 04/08/2010

This review is from: Microsoft XBOX 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter

Pros: Great HD viewing for Netflix

Cons: Would NOT work with media center on Windows 7 Pro 64 streaming, i would try to select a music playlist and the connection would drop with the router in the other room with at most 2 thin walls between. Purchased after christmas returned within the week.

Other Thoughts: I am using a draft N netgear single band router, so its most likely that the issue was with my routers N protocols and not the adapter, which is why i didn't mark it to low, because HD wireless was great for netflix
