ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 7 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Kind of supports 220W cpu
-Memory overclocking profiles are convenient
-Lets you save your BIOS settings
-Instant BIOS firmware updating is nice
-Memory reset button if your settings don't work

Cons: -Does not work with the FX-9590 with default bios settings and clock speeds. Any operatings system I tried on any harddrive would freeze without warning if I used the default settings in BIOS.
-Needs a lot of tweaking in BIOS to be able to use the computer without freezing

Other Thoughts: I used this to build my new computer:
FX-9590
M5A99FX Pro 2.0
R9-295x2
32GB G.Skill Sniper 2133 memory
Mushkin enhanced reactor 1TB SSD
Rosewill Hive 1000w PSU
Enermax ECA3270 full tower case

It took me a few weeks after I built this to figure out what was causing my system to freeze randomly all the time. The only way I was able to get it working was to use the automatic O.C. tuner in BIOS, but even that would freeze while playing games or just using the desktop. After troubleshooting all the hardware, I starting manually tweaking every setting in the BIOS. I figured out I had to load the overclock profile for my memory, change every setting under the DIGI+ menu to STANDARD, disable all the powersaving CPU features ie. Cool'n'quiet etc... and worst of all, I had to underclock my expensive 4.7ghz processor down to 4.5ghz to be able to play games without it freezing.

The reason I chose this motherboard is because people in the Q&A section said it worked great with their FX-9590. Maybe my board is defective?

If you are using this for a high-end CPU, I do not recommend it.

LG 55
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs 08/24/2013

This review is from: LG 55" 1080p 120Hz Cinema 3D LED TV 55LM4600

Pros: Affordable 55"
Thin TV and bezel
Not incredibly heavy
Cinema mode is fairly accurate without calibration
Expert controls allow full calibration with accurate results
Very little motion blur, almost as good as plasma
Does not use frame interpolation like most 120hz TVs (soap opera effect)
Passive 3D is more affordable and practical than active

Cons: Edge lighting creates uneven brightness (only noticeable when one solid color is displayed on the whole screen)
2D to 3D mode cuts off the left and right sides slightly
3D picture cannot be calibrated
Glossy screen may not be good in a windowed room

Other Thoughts: I used a USB colorimeter and calibration software to get a more accurate picture.The settings posted below should look good on most devices.

Rosewill RHTB-11013T - 37
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Holds heavy TVs
-About 4" of wall clearance with long spacers
-Big hooks and bars make mounting the TV easy
-Tilt locks hold everything still
-bought it for half price with a promo code

Cons: -Instructions do not mention you need to remove the chrome bars before screwing the plate to the wall

Other Thoughts: Make sure the larger bottom bar doesn't interfere with the inputs on the back of your TV. My HDMI slots just barely have enough clearance to plug in. I may need to buy 90 degree adapters or adjust the position of the hooks mounted to the back of the TV to be safe.
