ASRock X99 Extreme4 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Though time consuming, migrating to this platform was straightforward and the ASRock BIOS was simple to follow and helped make difficulties easier to overcome. I had no problem with CPU or memory installation and there were many helpful ways to check yourself and monitor operation. I'm running an i7-5820 with 16GB of 2666 and am pleased with how this build went.

Cons: I was migrating from a DDR2 platform so a direct OS migration failed- so I opted for a clean install of Windows 7 and applications. I'm using upper end HDDs, but applications take longer than usual to launch than they did on my DDR2 system and sometimes they don't launch at all. I tested my media and memory and am running stock speeds and voltages, so it looks like an integration problem.

Other Thoughts: The system is on the bleeding edge of consumer technology so I think there are still kinks to work out with DDR4/2011-v3 tech. There have been no BIOS or firmware updates on my install so I suspect my problems need more tweak than fix. I also suspect that this board caters more to the SSD crowd. Still- I'm more ot a developer than gamer so it's good to have 12 cores and 16GB to crunch with. I'm confident enough in the system at this point to be cautiously optimistic that issues will be figured out or addressed- but I can't give this more than 3 eggs until I do.

HyperX DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTHX30/64GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Above all- Reliable.
Large enough for now
Fast enough for now ;D

Cons: Fat Form Factor- can't get into tight places.
Pricey- but I needed something I could count on above all consideration. Still, for this price it should have the best of all worlds as much as possible.

Other Thoughts: I use this thumb drive heavily on the job. I've owned other brands and none of them have survived- a couple even with normal use. Brands I thought should have known better. I can't have that at work.
Kingston was more expensive, but I've used it heavily, washed it, dropped it down a stairwell, been in a pool- I even managed to crack the casing on one- and it still worked without data loss. I gag at the price- but this has saved my tail more than once.

Canon VIXIA HF M52 (6093B004) Black 1/3
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great picture. Not difficult to use the basics. Strongest thing about it is its ability to get great video in low light settings. I LOVE having 32GB and room for over 2hrs of HD. My days of 30 minute videos are done. It's light and has pretty flexible display. Battery life is about 2hours.

Cons: Wi-Fi is more complicated and inflexible than it needs to be. Note: Works with AES but not with TKIP+AES on my WR. The auto-focus is slower than I'm used to. Does not support USB 3.0. Some of the setting details are not as clear for general public- but it isn't rocket science either. Complete battery recharge- about 5hr- have a spare.

Other Thoughts: First- I did not get it here but on clearance as I suspect they are turning over the line. Overall, this is really a great deal- take some time out to use the features.
