Z170-A Configurator
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Turns your upgrade into a downgrade 08/30/2016

This review is from: Z170-A Configurator

Pros: The q-connect (a standard asus feature) made connecting the case speaker, power switch, etc. much easier.
Has connection for a switch (possibly your standard reset switch, if you like) that restarts the computer and launches the BIOS interface

Cons: A severe shortage of USB ports, making a header bracket (not included) a necessity
Bios has crippling lag with keyboard or mouse, which makes it incredibly frustrating to use. (several seconds to respond to a keystroke, including using up or down to move through the list of settings)
Included software won't install if you used a previous Asus board (possibly only for AMD-based boards) until you do a system refresh (in win 10) or clean install
system is unstable when using included xtreme tuning utility

Other Thoughts: Ships separately (and days slower than) any other items you've ordered.
I've built and upgraded several systems of the years, so I know there's always some pain and hiccups with a major upgrade like this one, but this is the worst experience I've ever had with an upgrade, and that includes a few dead-on-arrival items.

Seagate BarraCuda LP ST32000542AS 2TB 5900 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Comparable price and performance for it's time.
very easy to use and install.
No problems until it failed without warning.

Cons: Failed without warning after only a few years.

Apparently this particular model is known to spontaneously fail thanks to a new platter coating Seagate started using with this model. It also has a higher failure rate than Western Digital and Hitachi combined.

Other Thoughts: Do your research before you buy. Be sure to check the 1-2 star reviews to look for common problems.

LOGISYS Computer SF120  120mm Extreme Quiet Rubber Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for 04/11/2011

This review is from: LOGISYS Computer SF120 120mm Extreme Quiet Rubber Fan

Pros: Very quiet; quieter than other fans with lower noise specifications.
Includes low and high-speed molex adaptors, so you can choose quiet or performance if your MB doesn't include 4-pin fan connetions
Includes rubber fan mounts that are much easier than screws, and help reduce vibration

Cons: Premium price: It's significantly more expensive than most fans of it's size.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this alongside a Scythe Kama fan of the same size (planning one for my case, one for my cpu), which had a slightly lower specified noise level. In practice, THIS fan is by far the quieter one. It also has some great extras, like a second molex adaptor to run the fan at it's minimum speed, a Y-adaptor for connecting two fans to the same 4-pin connector, and rubber mounting brackets that replace the usual screws (just like the ones you'll find on a Thermaltake Frio cpu cooler).

I'm definitely going for this series next time I purchase a case fan.
