4 out of 5 eggs Electric Dusting Makes Sense 12/08/2013

This review is from: Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Electric Duster, White

Pros: The DataVac blows out all of the major debris of dust thoroughly enough to keep the PC running in the best
condition. It's more convenient than using an air
compressor that makes you wait and wait for the
next burst air to come to a certain level of pressure.
On the other hand, using the canned air alternative is dangerous and I'll never go back to it again. I hate to
think of what that gas would do to sensitive hardware
over time.

Cons: The only thing I noticed is that there is a very thin layer of dust that still wasn't blown away from some of my hardware devices. Even though, that's not really a big deal, as long as the computer runs at it's best.

Other Thoughts: For those new to dusting out the inside of a PC, never have the duster to close, it's possible something might go wrong.
Seriously, this product is powerful, don't underestimate it just because it's small.

CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMP8GX3M2B1333C9
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This ram is highly stable and reliable with the default timmings turned on. My last pair was identical to this
and had the black edition profile already set to 1333 MHz DRAM frequency, but I had occasional lock-ups. Ever since I installed this pair, so far I have had none. Games play faster with less stuttering and applications run much much faster. 8 GB makes a world of difference.

Cons: It would have been nice if the advertised speed would not have to be set manually. Not having expertise in tuning ram timings, I just left the BIOS settings alone because I see barely any difference in the DRAM frequency of 1067 to 1333 MHz.

Other Thoughts: I tried and tried and I just can't lock-up my system!!

ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The M5A99X EVO is undoubtedly a revolutionary board with its unique power design and innovative BIOS. You don't even have to worry about the ancient wasted space of bulky IDE cables.

Cons: Firstly, I've been buying Asus boards for almost ten years now and never bought a board from them I didn't love. This is the first board I can't stand. First I turn on my system and it takes way too long to even begin to boot. When I enter BIOS the first time, it locks up. After I reboot taking forever... I'm finally able to save some BIOS settings and then suddenly the monitor led starts blinking and the screen is black. Eventually... it dies.
The SATA settings are confusing, where you have to set only certain ports just to run a Windows install. The SATA connectors are in a direction that is hard to plug in.
It's not even worth getting a replacement. I urge you not to buy...

Other Thoughts: Before you buy from Asus... think. The problem seems to span from the M5A boards using the new power design. For some reason, some hardware seems to work better than with others for this board. Unfortunately, my system was highly unstable. Asus has a few dozen kinks to work out on the new boards.
