This review is from: TUL G41D3C LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Basic inexpensive Motherboard for the last generation of Intel Processors. Was able to do a slight overclock.
Cons: Does not support S3 sleep state. In other words your mouse won't be able to wake up this computer, you will have to press the power button after it hibernates. Also, this company ignores rebates.
Other Thoughts: I don't think I would buy Biostar again because they don't even respond to multiple emails about rebates to their company email. The rebate is indicated on their site but weeks overdue. Imagine if there is a problem with the board?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-H61M-DS2 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Quality Basic board with solid capacitors. Gigabyte boards can usually work with OSX.
Cons: Lacks many modern features like USB 3.0 and DVI/HDMI. You need an inexpensive video card for dual display. There are also USB 3.0 expansion cards.The SATA ports are in a lousy place if you need to install a big video card, but a low profile card fits fine. There are angled cables to solve this issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Black & Decker CTO6305 Black Digital Convection Toaster Oven
Pros: This oven has convection and cooks very well. Temperature is very accurate and can be set using digital controls. Preheats quickly. Large interior for a toaster oven. Oven shuts off automatically so you don't ruin food.
Cons: The LCD display could be a bit brighter(hard to read in dim light)and the buttons have a snap-click feel - the controls and display seem like they came from an an early 80s VCR. Cook time cannot be adjusted until the oven preheats. Oven exterior gets pretty hot.
None of these issues should keep you from buying this product. It is head and shoulders above most inexpensive toaster ovens.
Other Thoughts: When it goes on sale in the mid 60$ range its a steal.READ FULL REVIEW
