This review is from: Asus Zenfone 2 Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Black, 16GB Storage 4GB RAM, US Warranty
Pros: Good phone while it lasted
Cons: Screen life is not long in my case.
Other Thoughts: Screen went out with 8 days left on warranty. Going to try and go through Asus warranty. Hope it works out for me. Think my model isobsolete so maybe theyll send me the newer version.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Work great as an external drive, but the NAS functions and most apps are very finiky. I consider myself as pretty knowledgeable with PCs, not as much on networking skills. I found the setup was very difficult. Allot of apps change settings, so I spent more time working and playing with settings than I did actually running it.
Ended up giving it to my son who works as a network admin. He got it going but agreed it was difficult.
Cons: Hard to set up
Not for the average home user unless they have a network admin to help.
Short life span for a backup / file sharing device.
Other Thoughts: Unit recently died after about 24 months of very light use. It sat un-used most of that time.
Pulling the drives and putting them into a WD My Cloud NAS box. It sounds much more user friendly that this device.
Unless they've made allot of changes I wouldn't recommend Synology NAS products.
This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Board install easily into my Thermaltake Chaser II case. installed an intel 3770k cpu, 32gb of Corsair 1600 ram which was on sale @NewEgg for $150. runnig a Evga 650TI vide card (for now). Also went with a Thermaltake water cooler extreme 2.0. Haven't OCed it yet but plan too. Cable managment was exellent with this set up. also running 4 Segate 1Tb 7200rpm, 64mb cache, drives setup in RAID 10. All purchased here. Except for the Thermaltake Black Widow 850W PSU.
Cons: None to speak of yet, but haven't pushed it yet. It runs everthing so well I haven't had a need to. since I went with the 3770k cpu and water cooled it I have to push it.
Other Thoughts: UPDATE; as promised: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155
Still running strong, I usually upgrade every couple years but no need to with this set up. board is excellent, I generally upgrade every couple years so I can cut cost by doing a few parts at a time. Well now an upgrade would require a new MB and CPU so its not really needed yet. Going to a new Gen MB to accept a 4670k or better CPU simply isn't a good choice for me when comparing the performance gains against the cost of a new higher end MB. I know my rig is not the latest and greatest now but after running it a couple years I have nothing negative to say about it at all... running it at 4.2 to 4.5 with turbo boost. The memory helped me to remain stable up to 4.5Ghz +/- with no over-volting, with the Thermaltake Water Cooler Extreme 2.0 keeping the CPU at 27C - 42C max under load. Leads me to believe it'll last a while.
