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

Pros: None with the stability issues.

Cons: Like said below. Constant reboots. Wont hold mild overclock through boot and post. Even at base settings loop boots multiple times before booting. Bios config is difficult and slow. RAM and SSD selection very limited and the list is old. Installing my second board today. Identical. Hoping I just got a bad one the first time.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Gigabyte mobo. I'm not impressed. I was a huge ASUS fan but they haven't had all that great reviews lately either. I'm thinking MSI might be the deal these days or EVGA. I'd have gladly purchased EVGA. EVGA doesn't make an ATX for factor mobo in the X99 SLI config, unfortunately. Of the 20+ mobos I've used in the last 15 years EVGA is the only brand that I have a zero failure, 100% function experience with.

Cons: No lighted keyboard. Really?

5 out of 5 eggs Great Vac Sealer! 02/23/2011

This review is from: Weston 65-0201 Vacuum Sealer PRO 2300 (Stainless Steel)

Pros: Fast! Not a bag hog. I get to select the seal point w/o having to leave a long tab of unused and expensive bag for the machine to work. I can cut bags lengthwise and reseal with vacuum from the end for long thin items. Uses 10-15% less bag material than any of the Foodsaver machines. A little quieter than the Foodsaver machines and 3 times faster. Don’t have to fuss around trying to get the machine to engage due to curled up bags that won’t go into the slot on the Foodsaver.

Cons: Very large and a little heavy. Hey, this thing is not a toy like some of the others on the market. Priced correctly for how well it works but still pricey for occasional use. Does not compare to a chamber machine at all. Must still use the high priced embossed bags. Still wish I could afford a chamber machine.

Other Thoughts: I've owned 3 different versions of the Foodsaver machines. They break. There is no support or replacement parts from Foodsaver. Foodsaver feels you should just buy a new one every time a Foodsaver breaks I guess. I pack and freeze homemade sausage a couple times a year. When I need a vac packer I usually pack 200-300lbs in a week’s time. This machine is gonna really make my life easy when I need to pack a whole batch of sausage.
