ASUS SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK1 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: If the board is functioning it is a nice performer.

Cons: I have had this board for 8 months, and it has died twice. The first time I RMA'ed it and while prepping the shipment I damaged the CPU pins, and had to pay for repairs... nothings perfect, it died but I damaged it on the way in.. no harm no foul there.

Two months later I rebooted my machine and it won't post. Through trouble shooting I deduce that memory channel "A" is bad and sent the board in for another RMA.. two weeks later same broken board is returned to me with the same problem. When I called tech support I was told they certified it working and since I didn't listen for beep codes it was a waste of my money to ship it.

To date I have replace or removed all parts except for the motherboard and it has the same issue, but their RMA department just wasted my time and money by shipping it back and forth.

Other Thoughts: I've used asus MBs since the 90s when I got a 440bx board and have loved them enough to support them through other devices such as phones, network gear, tablets and video cards. But treating me like an idiot and proving awful customer service means I can't support them anymore.

Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I set up a windows storage space with 4 of these and ran it for about 2 years before one was flagged as dying by windows; replaced with another paid and expanded storage.

Cons: 1/4 was flagged as bad after a couple years but it is still working, just pulled all data off of it due to the flag.
