Pros: - cheap
- no aux power required
Cons: - only one DVI port is dual link
- max resolution of 1920x1200 on second (middle) DVI port
Other Thoughts: - had to contact EVGA support to verify that the middle DVI port is not dual-link. That information was fairly hard for the support rep to find.
- Despite my conversation with EVGA, Newegg product support refuses to acknowledge that their description is wrong. Returned for full refund.
This review is from: ASUS Xonar U3 16-bit 48KHz USB Interface Sound Card
Pros: Worked immediately when I plugged it into a Dell M3800 running Mint Linux. Had to select it as the output sound card, as one would expect in a machine with multiple sound cards. No drivers required, no command line stuff. It. Just. Worked.
Cons: The volume adjustment provided by linux goes from nothing to kinda-loud without any steps in between. I don't know if that's the device or linux, so I didn't deduct any eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS X99-DELUXE LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: The board mostly works, and when it does it flies. The bios is easy to understand, and provides enough options for an overclocker to go nuts. 8 DDR4 slots, m.2 support onboard (which I haven't tried), and many, many usb3 ports.
Cons: Asus support. Oh dear lord, Asus support. The board I received acts a little flaky (bios usb enumeration sometimes has garbage characters in it, sound starts to skip after the machine has been on for a while, usb devices need to be unplugged and replugged to work if they've been idle for a while). I started through the Asus RMA process, and I keep getting the runaround.
Faxing the form in is useless, as they will ignore it and advise you to wait one more day or try re-submitting the form. I will be e-mailing in the form tonight (I'm glad I kept it and have a scanner, because they require a hand-written signature in several places and will not accept a computer drawn signature).
Other Thoughts: Asus, I'm very disappointed in your customer service. If you provide a fax option, make sure those actually get processed.READ FULL REVIEW
