ASUS Z77-A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The board seems good enough, spec wise...and from other reviews it seems like it seems to be good for the money with some minor problems here and there.

Cons: The board seemed a little flimsy so be careful when installing it

Other Thoughts: The reason why I only gave this board 2 eggs is because I never actually got to use it but without fault to the board itself so I left 2 eggs for that reason.

When I took the board out of the box and went to install it, I quickly realized I had gotten the wrong socket style. Last minute decision to order the cheaper sale versus the board I was originally going to get, made me forget to double check for the socket style as I must have misread it :{ I quickly repackaged it with the original packaging and filed an RMA. Then I ordered a different board with the proper socket style. Newegg approved the RMA and It was sent out and a week later (today) I recieved notice that the board was damaged. Now, this came to a suprise to me because all I did was take it out of the box and prepare to install it. They said that the CPU socket pins were damaged? How can this be when I did not even have the right CPU to install...I never got to that point in installation! Well...apparantly that doesn't matter to Newegg and they denied my request and are sending the board back... I built a budget system for a I am going to be stuck with a board I don't need and a supposedly damaged one at that? The board must have already been damaged if it is...because I did not even get to that point...I never even looked at the socket! I realized it when I looked at the unopened cpu box and realized the mistake I had made.

In any case...I msged Newegg about this and they said there is nothing they can do and that I must contact the manufacturer about warranty information.

I can't afford to not get this RMA...and I spent an extra 15 just to ship the thing back...

So if you are looking to RMA , please do so using caution. Don't make the same mistake of ordering the wrong socket...especially if there is a chance that the board was DOA!

Also the RMA type was changed from Return to Replacement for some reason at the time of denial? We did not want a replacement...we ordered the proper board already and used money we don't really have because we had no idea the board was even damaged... What am I supposed to do ?

ADESSO AKB-131HB Black 104 Normal Keys USB Wired Standard Keyboard with USB Hub
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Gets the job done. Usb ports for reduced clutter. Media keys and standard keyboard size. Works and is affordable.

Cons: After about half a year, the cord connected to the keyboard came loose and pulled out. It wasnt a big deal as it didnt completely fall out n I just taped it down. It isnt a gaming keyboard but it hasnt given me problems altho 3 years later it sometimes stops being recognized at post bootup. No big deal. Its probably et its last breath. Not a bad run time.

Other Thoughts: Not sure about the issues in the other reviews. Of course when Ibought it, I knew it was not ideal for gaming or fast responses especially at such a low price...but I am definitely suprised that I had none of those problems. Ive never had keys sticking or problems with getting fast responses. I type fast and am on the pc almost all day every day and while it has been a bit sensitive it hasnt had problems registering. When I press a key, that key responds. Sometimes a bit too well but really what do you expect? Its a cheap keyboard. ..

For me the bonuses were the usb ports which help reduce cable clutter from my mouse and whatever else...and the media keys. Media keys are pretty much a must for me and it is always a task trying to find an affordable cheap keyboard that is has media keys. Most of the ones I come alomg are a bit pricey for fittimg basic needs, are not standard ... and/or have overly rounded edged keys like the spacebar which make typing uncomfortable for my taste. It feels wierd and sensitive. This keyboard clicks n sounds as expected and has a decent sensitivity...for not making a gaming high profile keyboard, I find the price to ne a steal since it has those features. Possibly, this could just be one of those hit or miss things. Ive defintely used worse ones before. Dont buy this unless you understand that this is what you should expect from a basic usb keyboard of its price. Invest more if you want faster and more accurate response times.

iomega Prestige Desktop 1TB USB 2.0 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have owned this drive for around 2 years now and I have yet to notice any serious performance issues since purchase. I use this drive to store all of my data aside from installations, so it is constantly in use, but I have not noticed any significant data transfer issues.

Cons: There is one annoying issue (other than the flashing but that can be useful) and that is with permissions. I have full admin permissions but for some reason this drive will constantly tell me that I do not have permission to access and I have to retrieve the files through force. Other times It works fine with full access, I don't understand why it started to do this. I am sure the issue is on my end.
Cooling also seems to be a bit on the low end, but I do use it constantly as I would an internal so that could be why. There are things that can be done to solve this so that is not too much of a problem when I am not on the move.

Other Thoughts: I would recomend this drive for anyone who needs to quickly backup their files or store files for when they are on the move since the drive is pretty cheap and you can find it at a number of store locations.
My computer recognizes this device as:
Hitachi HDS721010CLA332 USB Device (1000 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)
which I verified with AIDA64 Extreme. Although other people say it uses a Seagate? I am not too sure.
