Pros: The board has probably the easiest UEFI bios that you can work with. Their software is excellent and the over build quality and aesthetics is good. 8 SATA ports which stands out though only 6 are integrated and 2 are provided by another controller.
Cons: This board has KNOWN ISSUES. Do a quick scan on asus forums and you will see there are issues with the onboard audio. Like 60 pages of issues and Asus isn't even acknowledging it. Many thing the audio and microphone ports are just not wired properly so Asus couldn't fix it if they wanted.
Other Thoughts: For the $$, buy a different motherboard. Stay away from the ROG series b/c for 2 motherboards now they implemented the same audio problems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a great monitor. The biggest advantage is the stand. I was tired of going through lower cost monitors that could only swivel or tilt. I know most are VESA compliant and you can buy a new stand but when considering the cost of the monitor plus stand it often is more than this one.
Viewsonics G series monitors are fantastic. The picture on this one is much more clear than all of my other monitors. Graphics are clear, color is great, the adjustments are very smooth, and no bright leds when its in standby.
Cons: Speakers are horrible. But this is a monitor not a TV.
Other Thoughts: First one received had a line of red pixels about 3 inches long but the cardboard box had some scrapes from shipping. Newegg's RMA process was very smooth and only took about 10 days total.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cisco Small Business SR2016T-NA Unmanaged Unmanaged Switch with QoS
Pros: This switch is very stable. Rock solid stable. I have never needed to cycle the power and every port works at full speed.
Cons: The only con I notice is that this switch does respond quickly on the initial request. What I mean is that after a PC first boots with static IP, the first request to any website, server, or a pc on the lan takes about 10 seconds. I have only noticed it with this switch. If i remove the switch and plug in to my older D-Link switch there is no delay on the first request. I am not a network expert so I can't explain why it does this. Its not a big deal b/c after the first request it is very responsive.READ FULL REVIEW
