BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z87X 3D LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Simple and gets the job done 01/12/2014

This review is from: BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z87X 3D LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Well laid out board with and easy to use BIOS.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some other boards, but that is just fewer things to break and means a lower cost.

SNT SNT-BPSS425A 1 x 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very solid construction. The bay is a lot heavier than I expected and that is a good thing. The fans are quite. I like that you only need 1 power connection to all 4 drives.

Cons: Not enough of a con to take and egg off, but the drive trays don't slide as easily as some professional grade raid cages I have used, but they work well enough.

Other Thoughts: Great item, I would definitely buy it again.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

1 out of 5 eggs I Should have bought Windows 7 01/12/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Newegg delivered it quickly

Cons: Where do I even begin; this is the worst version of Windows ever. The start menu has been removed and replaced with a tablet like page with your most frequent "apps" which just doesn't work well with a mouse and keyboard. Everything starts up by default in fullscreen mode, so you can't put windows side by side if you want to read something while writing in another app. There are ways to get around this, but they are not intuitive and completely undocumented. Once you do get things out of fullscreen, the windows themselves look terrible. It looks like windows 3.1 returned. Microsoft is trying to gouge you for all you worth by having the OS drive you to their app store every time you turn around. It is just a terrible OS.

Other Thoughts: I should have believed all the bad reviews of Windows 8 and bought a copy of Windows 7 instead. Don't make the mistake I did and buy Windows 8 just because it is the newest OS.
