ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Great ASUS board as always! 03/04/2015

This review is from: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Upgrading from a P8P67 REV 3.1 I found this board very similar in it's BIOS and is easy to use because of this. Easy manual overclocking without an issue with the I7-4790K. Has been stable since the day I bought and have no regrets getting another Asus board. Love the LED indicator screen on the board to help troubleshoot any issues rather than through beeps like in the past.

Cons: Has the occasional "Overclocking failed" error/bug that I got on my previous board. Simply clicking through and clicking exit without changes seems to override this issue.

Pros: Very quiet, very powerful, plenty of connectors. Has 3 led colors (to those who are interested). And it comes with a FIVE YEAR WARRANTY! Can't beat that! Very good PSU for a great price.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The only thing that concerns me is that the PSU fan doesn't spin until this unit gets EXTREMELY hot. If you stick your hand in the case near the PSU, it feels very hot which concerns me a little. I guess heat is not much of a concern for Corsair PSUs. On the other hand, like I said above, it comes with a 5 year warranty so I'm not worried.

I would like to point out that refurbished products tend to be more likely less to fail because they are hand-tested unlike new products.

**I'm just pointing this out if you are concerned about getting a refurb. product.

BYTECC HMSP102 1 x 2 HDMI Splitter
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Garbage 08/29/2014

This review is from: BYTECC HMSP102 1 x 2 HDMI Splitter

Pros: Split one port into two, that's it.

Cons: Did not ever get past 480p out of my DirecTV, unplug and connect directly to TV and get 1080p. Started giving me trouble earlier this week and now all audio is choppy. Thought it was my DirecTV, but once again, works fine connected directly to my TV. On a side note: the ports were always flimsy. Got less than 8 months use out of it before it failed!

Other Thoughts: Bought from Newegg on e*B*a*y so it will not show "Verified Owner". But I surely bought this junk thinking that it was going to work just fine due to its rating here on Newegg. Guess I'll have fun dealing with the tech support/RMA department of this unheard of brand.
