5 out of 5 eggs Good performance, stable 10/27/2012

This review is from: ASUS P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: So far performance has been great, and I have had no stability issues with windows 7 x64.

Cons: It was a little bit fussy when I first installed it. I think I've just been lucky with all the systems I've built since around 1999-2000 have had no problems starting and installing windows with all components installed.

With this board, I had to start with only essentials, one DVD drive, graphics card, singe hdd, and one dimm of ram before it would boot. After that I had to add each component individually but had no further problems.

Since this shouldn't be unexpected when building a system, I'm not going to knock an egg off. I was a bit annoyed, but I think I've just been spoiled with easy set up of most every other system I've built since the turn of the century.

Other Thoughts: I've been using Asus boards since building my first system around late 1999 with an Athlon 750Mhz cpu, and I have never had any problems that I could attribute to the motherboard. I've also used their graphics cards in some builds and they were also great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Asus products to anyone.

Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW180A3K5 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast is about the only way I can describe this drive. I have another machine with a 15k SAS raid setup, and this drive beats it hands down. I haven't had any problems with it either, so reliability seems great too.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would definately recommend this drive.

3 out of 5 eggs Missing CD key 10/27/2012

This review is from: Rage PC Game

Pros: Once I was able to get a CD key from bethesda, the game itself was pretty good, although I think replay value is somewhat limited. Once I was finished with the story, I haven't had any real desire to play it anymore.

I did not have any stability issues with the game. Hardware requirements also seem to be quite low, I think web browsing with firefox used more resources than this game.

Cons: The game arrived with no CD key, I had to contact bethesda to get a new one. While they were very prompt with communication, responding within hours even on a weekend, I had to give them everything short of a blood sample to get a new key. I blame this more on software pirates than bethesda, as I'm sure it is hard to get a new CD key from anyone these days.

Other Thoughts: Bethesda requires that you provide a copy of the receipt, along with scans of the game discs and DVD case. If you don't or aren't able to provide this sort of thing I wouldn't recommend ordering incase you don't get a CD key. From what I've read on various sites online, I'm not the first and probably not the last to receive a copy that is missing a CD key.

I would give bethesda 5/5 for the promptness of their support, were it not for that I would have given this 1 egg as not receiving a CD key is unacceptable.
