This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD3 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Its Gigabyte, therefore has all the known bios options. Looks good. The board functions as it should. 3 stars because they cheated me with the capacitors.
Cons: Low quality Capacitors by the "AMPED" Audio chip. This is the single worst part of this board. Gigabyte has always been known to use high quality capacitors until now.
Lacks 1394 port or headers.
Sata Ports are sideways. Its always difficult to add hard drives later due to the mounting position. Seems to be the thing with most enthusiast board for the last few years.
Other Thoughts: At least it works, but my faith in this board lifetime is uncertain due to certain cost cutting corners. To save about a dollar in parts they made this board guaranteed to fail within 7 years. That's planned obsolescence. With computers you really don't need to do that as tech is still evolving. I am very disappointed in the build quality over this specific detail.
I know when this board fails it will be next to impossible to find another. As I learned with my previous board, the EP45T.
I hope Gigabyte changes their ways back to quality first.
This review is from: Klipsch Synergy Sub-10 420W 10" Subwoofer Black
Pros: Has a nice built in adjustable crossover. Works best at just past half way. Gains work best at 25% to 60% after that it makes no difference.
The best thing about this particular sub is the driver has an unusually high sensitivity rating, which makes it much louder at any given input value than a like speaker with a lower sensitivity rating. The reason i re-purposed the driver.
Cons: In storage for a month the amp stopped working. The compactors had popped, and when powering it on it had causing the board to burn up.
When i took it apart to repair it, I was quite disappointed in the components used. Finding parts for it were not easy. I was going to build my own amp, but I ended up hooking it up direct to my 60 watt rotel amp with a crossover which pushes it harder than the stock amp could. so this is how i come tot he conclusion that the stock amp is less than 50 watts. Also when looking up the part numbers I kept getting info the amp was 35 watts
Pros: Intel has a program you can get from their site that can help you update the firm ware easily if needed, as well as some minor maintenance options.
Cons: Was 139.00 for a month, now its 199. Wish I had bought 3. The day after black Friday the price jumped to 199.99. I was gonna buy 2 more. All the ssds jumped in price over night. Not really a con, but the price hike bugs me.
Other Thoughts: Intel has always been know for being a bit more expensive than it competition and a bit more reliable and faster for identical speed in cpu's. An intel cpu with all the same specs on paper will over clock significantly better than its amd supposed equal.
Now with this in mind I would expect the same for e their ssds. If you see a good price on an Intel ssd get it.
