Pros: delivered quickly

Other Thoughts: It is obviously inexpensive jewelry, but it looks nice and what would you expect for $65?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Archos 80 G9 ARM Cortex-A9 8G Flash 8.0" Android Tablet - US Android 3.2 (Honeycomb)
Pros: Battery life and Android 4.0
Cons: Low quality screen for off-angle viewing.
The USB/charging port fit is loose to start with. After 5 months of use, the USB/charging port broke loose inside the device and now we can not charge it.
Archos has ignored my request for support. I sent email from their web site Sept 15, 2012 and received an automated reply saying they would get back in two business days. Five business days later, NOTHING.
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-890FXA-UD5 AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Lots of features and Newegg of course.
Cons: Set it up with SSD for a boot drive and 1TB WD for data and dual-boot to Linux-Ubuntu/Windows 7. However, one ethernet port stopped working last week in both OSs. Tried with multiple different known good cables and ethernet switches and ports but can not even get a handshake lite on the ports. Switched to second port cause I love this board otherwise and spent two weeks carefully setting it up. But today the second port stopped working. Again we tried into multiple known good eth switches and get nothing. BIOS checks for SmartLan1 show 0 length cable and the other doesn't even return from the virtual cable test.
Other Thoughts: The main office ethernet switch also supports two other workstations. This mobo is the only one of three that has had a problem.
Should have gone ahead and done RMA when the first port failed last week. Now it has been 32 days and I have to try and go to Gigabyte support to get it replaced. Wish me luck.
