This review is from: Pioneer FH-X720BT CD Receiver with Bluetooth
Pros: All advertised functions works well. Blue tooth hand free is easy to set up. The customizable lighting is great.
Cons: Installation related - see other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: This is the first time I try to install an aftermarket stereo unit to my car. For those of you that don't already know, you need to get several other pieces on top of this to complete the installation, including:
- wiring harness
- crimp caps OR soldering/heat shrink tubing (I prefer soldering)
- dash kit for mounting
Ordered it for my 2004 Toyota Highlander. Ordered the wiring harness which works great. Dash kit however, gave me quite some headache.
Initially I got the Metra 99-8300 dash kit (also from NewEgg), which is supposed to fit multiple Toyota models including mine. But the double din vertical clearance is too small to fit the head unit. And I could not return it as the shipping itself costs about as much as the dash kit.
Then I got the Metra 95-8202 kit. This one is much simpler to work with, but still the unit is a few millimeters too wide. I had to sand down the kit to squeeze it in there, and it's still not a perfect fit.
This review is from: MSI Z87I LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Relatively easy overclock, decent feature for the price.
Cons: Only 2 fan connectors, had to get an adapter to have all the case fans running.
Other Thoughts: Was running an i5 4678K at 4.2GHz, stock voltage no problem with 1.3 bios, but after updated to 1.4 it became unstable. Had to revert back to 1.3READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast. XMP profile gets recognized easily. Low voltage and low profile is perfect for my itx build.
Cons: Wish I could have gotten it for $50 back then.
Other Thoughts: MB recognizes as DDR3-1333, but a quick bios change enabling XMP profile does the trick.READ FULL REVIEW
