This review is from: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7790 OC 100356OCL 1GB DDR5 PCI-Express Video Card
Cons: Is not compatible with Microsoft XP. May not help others, but that info certainly would have helped me.
Other Thoughts: Is compatible with Windows Vista (SP2)/7/8. My bad for not looking at the full specs I suppose. Newegg did not list minimum operating system requirements in the overview or details for the card. Now I have a brand new baby with no home :-(READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: brother HL Series HL-2170W Workgroup Up to 23 ppm Monochrome Wireless Laser Printer
Pros: Excellent quality for the price. Reasonable purchase price (great price if you can get it as a special for under a "C" note), relatively cheap to print (toner goes a long way), fast printing, reliable, and on, and on. [See Other Thoughts]
Cons: Three main problems. 1) It will not deliver my print jobs from the basement (networked printer) to the first floor where I print some of my jobs. 2) It doesn't have a feature to prevent my kids from running multiple "junk" print jobs. 3) It doesn't truncate the mapquest print jobs from my wife to prevent several pages of useless maps and ads from printing after the one page of directions she needs. Then again, I don't think these features are available on higher priced printers either.
Other Thoughts: I have five kids. I have used this for home office and personal use for more than four years. This printer is the family workhorse and has gone through several 10's of thousands of pages of printing. I have had very good luck with the life of toner cartridges. The printer has only jammed less than a handful of times. It is incredibly reliable! How reliable? Occasionally, my wife or kids will complain that the printer isn't working. When that happens, the last place I look for the problem is with the printer. It is usually a user error, software issue, or a problem with the printing queue. If, after all of that, I discover that it is "printer" problem, it is almost always an empty paper tray. The printer is so reliable that I bought a second printer to send to college with my daughter. If you are looking for a fire [print] and forget solution that is inexpensive to buy and maintain, stop reading and "ADD TO CART."READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quick install/solid performance. MB labelled for all connections including markings for proper wiring. Have not seen this on other MB's I used in the past.
Cons: Only two things. First, the SATA a couple of SATA connections will be lost if you have a large video card--which I do. This is not unique to this board and should not be a major drawback for most builds. The second problem was with the onboard LAN. Gigabyte had a dianostic but no drivers. If you are having difficulties with the LAN, take a look at opendrivers.com. My OS is XP and I had success with the Realtek RTL8111D Driver 5.756.
Other Thoughts: Not much experience with card to write a full review at this point. Primarily wanted to share resolution of LAN problem. Initial perfomance is 5 eggs--minus 1 for LAN problems.READ FULL REVIEW
