ASUS Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs An excellent LGA1150 Z-97 motherboard! 03/18/2015

This review is from: ASUS Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The Asus Z-97 Pro is an excellent LGA1150 Z-97 motherboard! Rock solid stability, with a good feature set and BIOS options for tweaking and overclocking. I've had this motherboard for almost 9 months, and felt that this was the best value for those that wanted to step up to Haswell-R if coming from pre-Sandy Bridge/Bulldozer hardware.

Cons: None, other than perhaps M2.SATA which doesn't interest me. I would have preferred more SATA-III ports or dual Intel LAN NICs.

Other Thoughts: System specs:

- Asus Z-97 Pro
- Intel i7-4790K @4.8 GHz
- 32 GB Crucial DDR3-1600 1.35v 8-8-8-24
- 2x Asus R9-270x 4 GB Crossfire
- Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
- 2x Crucial MX200 250GB
- Crucial MX100 512GB
- 2x WD Raptors 250GB
- Corsair Carbide Air 540 (black)
- Corsair HX750 power supply

Free Mobile Phone Service with Samsung Galaxy SIII (Pebble Blue) - FreedomPop (Certified Pre-owned)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: My FreedomPop Samsung Galaxy SIII (refurbished) arrived in good, working condition. FreedomPop service is pretty good for the price, as I paid an additional $80 upfront for a year of the unlimited talk & text with 500 MB of LTE monthly data plan. I figure that this will save me about $40/month, and I should recoup my initial investment in around 5 months or so, netting me about $280 in savings after the first year of service.

Cons: The Galaxy SIII is an older Android phone now, and I don't really care for the Samsung apps/bloatware or Android customizations. I miss my (nearly) stock Android Moto X. Also, one has to be careful of FreedomPop service, in that they will charge for overages and have the auto top-up setting (automatically bills you in advance for extra data if you approach the 500 MB/month limit) that most people will want to disable. I also won't be able to stream music when not on Wi-Fi anymore...oh well.

Other Thoughts: The VoIP calls have, thus far, been exceptionally clear, albeit the voice range sounds compressed. FreedomPop uses Sprint's data network, but ironically, I think that FreedomPop's VoIP service generally sounds better than Sprint's EV-DO HD voice service.

Time will tell if I continue to be happy with FreedomPop, but so far, so good.

CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD - PFC Sinewave UPS Systems - Pure Sine Wave | 100% Active PFC compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD is an excellent uninterruptible power supply. I am using these units to protect my PC, server, and home theater. Pure sine wave output, voltage regulation, and the ability to safely power down equipment. The info on the LCD display is extremely useful. Well designed and built UPS, I highly recommend this product to others that wish to protect their equipment.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I thought that the audio from my AVR improved after installing this UPS.
