GIGABYTE GA-X99P-SLI (rev. 1.0) LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautifully constructed board, with all the right specs and plenty of SATA ports
Mounted the ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-R perfectly and easy, with plenty of room for 4 tall DIMMS on both sides.

Cons: I've purchased several Gigabyte motherboards over the last 10 years for myself, friends and clients, and have been perfectly happy with every one, I've also been buying my computer parts from newegg for over 10 years, and so when I read the other reviews about this not shipping with an updated BIOS to support the new 6xxx CPU's, i said to myself, naaaa, they wouldn't continue shipping incompatible boards and still state that this works with the new processors, as well as offering combo purchase options... Boy was i wrong!! And needless to say destroyed my dreams of a fun filled weekend of building and testing my new super powerful Windows 10 machine.

This didn't boot, or even return an error code or beep with my new 6800K. So not only did I waste time building this and pulling out my current board to replace this with, but then I had to put everything all back the way it was with my old setup, and most likely remove all the parts and have to remount the cooler in another board.

It's now been 2 full business days, and still no reply from Gigabyte support via their website's form submission page.

Other Thoughts: On top of this, my board's box wasn't sealed like every other computer part I have ever bought, and the static bag didn't have the standard warning sticker on it, just a piece of scotch tape. I thought this was fishy since it was not marked as used/refurb/returned, but i was hoping that this meant that it was updated with the new F22 BIOS to make it compatible, again, WRONG. I reported this to newegg before opening it, but now I have to call back to complain about the inability to even use it, and the poor support from Gigabyte.

HUGE disappointment from 2 companies that I've trusted for so long.

LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After initial setup, they now instantly connect to my phone as soon as they turn on. Ready to listen within 5 seconds.

A little voice tells you your battery level on startup.

They sound amazing. Deep bass and clean, 3D sound if your music is awesome enough to produce sound like that..

Volume control, next/last track and microphone for talking all built in.

They weigh a few ounces, so I don't even notice them on my neck. Small enough to slip under my collar..

Magnetic holder mounts on each end.

NO more long WIRES hanging all over me,tethered to my device, or tangled up in knots,. And no more wearing away headphone jacks or damaging them by accidental bending..

Great battery life. I can get in about 5x 30 minute commutes before needing recharge

Cons: The little voice does not tell you battery level on shutdown.

No case or bag, luckily I had a small nylon bag from a car mount which fit these perfectly. Can't imagine it would cost more than $2-3, so it would have been nice if it were included.

Other Thoughts: I don't know how I lived with wired headphones for so long. When I see people still walking around with wires hanging all over,, I want to run up to every one of them and say: "WOW! Have you heard!? It's the future! No more wires for your headphones!! Still no flying cars yet though...

Corsair 128GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-128GB)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Clean design, nice casing materials, and fast transfers.

USB 2 read/write: 20-34mb/s
USB 3 read 150mb/s

Burst transfers up to 250mb/s or more.

Been running great for 4 months now.

Cons: Case is too wide, which I could thankfully tell before purchase, so had to buy small extension cable to be sure it can easily fit in all of the different computer port sizes I need connect to. Also helps with hard to reach spots.

Had some trouble with speed in the beginning, and I'm not sure how or why, but this thing literally had to get "warmed up" before it functioned properly, and reported correct transfer speeds....

Copying, deleting, formatting, changing cluster size, and working with Corsair tech support on and off for over 2 weeks trying to understand why the transfer progress bar would only move after a new file started, or 45sec+ passed. Write speeds on USB 2 were also low, 10-14mb/s.

Finally after about 3 weeks of usage and testing in random computers, bam! all of the sudden ut started to fly like it should, and progress updates functioned normal again. I've near seen anything like it, and have to dock 1 egg due to the hassle of all the troubleshooting. Thankfully all has been fine since.
