ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990X + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Bought two of these back in Feb 2013. One died with the red CPU indicator light on just six months out of warranty (Sept 2016)

Over the years I've purchased 15 Asus mobos and this is the first to completely fail any where close to this short time period. Over all it's a nice budget board and works well. Well enough client chose to replace it with exact same one for his work station. Simply R&R mobo, re-activate Win10 using his previous Win7 key (system was upgraded from 7 to 10) and all was back to normal.

2nd mobo still working as it should with no issues.

Cons: It's never good when something fails just after a three year warranty period but it does happen.

Other Thoughts: work station includes

M5A99X EVO R2.0
GSkill Trident X 16GB
Hyper 212 plus
AMD FirePro V4900
Lian Li PC-7HX

WD Red 4TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD40EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: No issues with mine. Packaging was excellent, passed WD tests and been running ever since. Speeds are right in line and no complaints with performance.
After 21 WD HDD purchases I've only had one DOA and it was 1 out of four 2TB Reds.
I purchased this as the first of 4 more to increase the array in my server but till than it'll do backup detail in my main rig. I've been very happy with both WD and Newegg for all my HDD's.

Cons: None unless I think of how SSD prices are dropping and have to wonder when these will follow a bit more.

HitLights 6W A19 / E26, LED Light Bulb, 40W Replacement, 522 Lumens, Non-Dimmable, UL, 2700K / Warm White
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The price was right when compared to local retailers in my area and thought I'd take a chance. Glad I did. After 10 months of everyday use (using 3 above a kitchen sink) I can't see any difference in the light color or intensity vs the 40w incandescent (soft white). Instant on and not seeing any dislikes at all. 120w vs 18w is a no brainer. Can't believe I waited so long to order lights from Newegg!

Cons: none
