Vantec USB External 7.1 Channel Audio Adapter - Model NBA-200U
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Outstanding Device 01/19/2013

This review is from: Vantec USB External 7.1 Channel Audio Adapter - Model NBA-200U

Pros: Amazing sound quality for a sound card this cheap, volume control buttons control windows audio levels rather than having a pre-amp control of it's own (a personal preference for me).

Cons: Blue LEDs are bright, but the worst part is that the power LED actually blinks when sound is 'detected'. Had to cover up the LEDs with electrical tape, otherwise I would see a bright blinking LED just about every time my computer is running.

Other Thoughts: Will probably buy a few more for my media center and laptop.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Everything, fasted POST I've seen in a while, black and gold color actually look really nice in person even though I didn't care for it in the picture.

Cons: Shorter than a standard ATX board so it doesn't reach the far right mounting holes, but not even enough to take off an egg. Hasn't caused any problems.

Other Thoughts: Needed a quick, cheap board to replace a failing gigabyte Z68 board (second bad experience with them, was the last one I get from them) and this one has out-performed my expectations. I even recommended it as a gaming board to a friend and will be getting a second one for myself on another project.

I use it mostly for gaming and video editing.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very impressed with this RAM just as all Corsair products. Not a single problem several months in.

Cons: Very tall. Leaves not much room for a large CPU cooler.

Other Thoughts: Might eventually replace with some low-profile RAM and move this to a server.
