ZIPPY BT-637 Black&Silver Bluetooth Wireless Mini Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Frequent disconnects 11/19/2011

This review is from: ZIPPY BT-637 Black&Silver Bluetooth Wireless Mini Keyboard

Pros: Nice for typing emails on my Ipad. The ability to hotkey between devices is a nice feature but I often found myself having to power cycle the keyboard and/or re-pair.

Cons: I bought this to replace a non-Bluetooth GearHead keyboard. I also bought the "AZiO BTD-V201 Micro Bluetooth Adapter USB 2.0". The distance between the adapter and the keyboard is about 3 feet. We were getting frequent disconnects which often required re-pairing. I tried moving the adapter to different ports, changing batteries, different distances. Nothing helped. So now it gathers dust under the coffee table with infrequent usage for Ipad emails.

Other Thoughts: I'm more satisfied with my non Bluetooth GearHead keyboard.

MSI Z68A-GD80 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a high end, feature rich motherboard built with quality components.

Cons: MSI provides a utility (Live Update) to update your BIOS, drivers & utilities. It doesn't work. It takes forever to scan for the list of updates. Then all attempts to update result in "download failed". So naturally I go to the website to manually download. Every link on their drivers section points you to a download link for DriverSmith which costs $50 ($29 on sale) to use. BTW their list of updates doesn't match the Live Update list of updates. So I find that MSI has Live Update Online (activex web version). Running this on my system gives me 1 update (vs the 20 from Live Update utility and 50 from DriverSmith).


If I don't return this MB (find a way to get drivers) I will post an update review in a couple weeks.

Other Thoughts: All the documentation has spelling errors and Changlish.

The mounting holes seem to have drained whatever protecting coating they put on the MB. I assume during production it is held by these holes and when it was released the protective coating hadn't dried and excess ran from the holes leaving smears across the MB.

The 2 sets of indicator LEDs on the MB are partially obscured by heatsinks.

UEFI mouse control often causes wrong selections when double clicking. After the 2nd click you autoselect whatever option may be beneath your pointer. And why are their "Games" in UEFI?

If you do buy this MB make sure you put your GPU in PCI_E2 (top slot). It is the only x16 slot. You will only get x8/x8 from 2 cards. And plug the USB port you want to charge devices with into JUSB1 (red one). It is the only one that allows charging.

Take a close look at the picture. You may not like all the stenciling written all over everything.

ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Some nice onboard features, new BIOS/EFI was nice, heat sinks look nice.

Cons: Died within first month. This was post-fix version. Just blinking red CPU diag. light. New board - same CPU is working fine. But getting odd voltage errors that may be related to over clock. I would not buy this or ASUS again. Still haven't fought through the RMA process yet. Was out of state and had to have a new mb overnight. So I'm probably out $180.

Other Thoughts: Read about ASUS support / customer service before buying any of their products. Plenty of other great tech comps. out there without the hassle.
