ASRock 970M Pro3 AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 + AMD SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It was inexpensive

Cons: June 2015 - I built a new machine around this board with an AMD 8350 4 Ghz. I fired it up on Win 7 and upgraded to Win 10 in August 2015. There were several problems with Win 10 as you already know. I struggled though most but it would go black screen and reboot. After trying all the OS fixes, I started changing components. A new power supply, a new video card, new RAM, nothing helped. Finally, after running Memtest 86 and getting so many errors the program quit running, I decided it has to be the mobo. Requested a RMA from ASRock, go it, filled it out, they came back with 'out of warranty' and will replace it for $50. I already paid for it once and aint gonna pay again. I believe the problem was a over heating MMU. Bought a Gigabyte board - plug and play!

Ethernet Network Cat5e Wall Plate - Dual (2 Port) RJ45 Connector Socket Wiring Plug Jack Decorative Face Cover Outlet Mount Panel Female to Female
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good price and appearance plus the jacks snap out of the wall plate, making punching down the wires to bottom jack much easier.

Cons: The jacks were not female to female but female to punch down. I purchased 2 wall plates. One of the jacks on the wall plate I used had no connection between the pin in the jack and the punch down for the cat5 brown/white wire. On base10/100 this wouldn't matter but on a gigabit LAN all pairs are used. It took a while to nail down where problem was.

Other Thoughts: Obviously the seller couldn't know that the jack was defective and it wasn't worth my time contacting them.

Xerox Phaser 6500/DN Color Laser Printer

This review is from: Xerox Phaser 6500/DN Color Laser Printer

Pros: Inexpensive, easy setup, quiet, prints fast, good definition.

Cons: Bought as a backup for an aging Ricoh CL2000N which was having some problems. Used intermittently for about a year; less than 2000 sheets printed. Hadn't even replaced any toner cartridges yet. It started to print all black sheets. Used Xerox trouble shooting site. Xerox wouldn't do anything on warrantee. End result replace the imaging unit. With the $329 original cost plus the $160 for the imaging unit, we could have purchased our new Ricoh C320DN in the first place. Don't buy this printer.
