ECS H81H3-I/HDMI (V1.0) LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Like the color scheme, excellent placement of the CPU socket. Easy, efficient, inexpensive.

Cons: Really not happy about this one. Was not aware that this motherboard was not Haswell-compatible. Bought this to assemble a mini-build to replace my father's old computer for Christmas. Got the computer assembled, but then... nothing. Found out after very heavy research that the board doesn't support the G3258 that I painstakingly picked out for this build. I have no reason to change the chip; it matched all the features I wanted. I'm very displeased that my father's Christmas present will be shoved back to some time after January 5th to wait for ECS tech support, or waste more money on paying $18 to return a $40 motherboard. I've had a lot of luck from Newegg, and I've been in good standing. I blame ECS for this. I took a chance buying this one, but I don't think I will ever again.

Other Thoughts: If a BIOS update is what is needed, I could fix that, but without a processor that will be frustratingly difficult. I would very much like to see the incompatibility listed on the Newegg page to warn future buyers.

Blu Dash 4.5 D310A Black 3G Quad-Core 1.2GHz Unlocked GSM Dual-SIM Android Cell Phone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought this phone back in February and it's been amazing since. I use it to store and view PDFs of various manuals and to play games using the Google play store and Visual Boy Advance. It works wonderfully for everything, the quad-core processor is a good choice. The screen is bright and responsive, the sound quality in calls and ringtones is rather high. The dual SIM option has served me well, I keep At&t in the phone alongside Boost. Between the two, I'm never out of service range.

Cons: About a month ago, the phone began turning off randomly. I have noticed that when it shuts off, it is sometimes difficult to turn back on. While I have the phone plugged in, it works fine. I believe that the phone's battery is to blame, and as a result, warn anyone purchasing this model to take care to not put pressure on the battery plate.

Other Thoughts: I'm really impressed with a phone in this price range having only such a seemingly minor issue. I doubt I will need a warranty exchange, but am frustrated that the battery needs to be replaced due to wear and tear damage after only about 6 months.

Huawei Fusion 2 U8665 Black 3G 800MHz Unlocked GSM Android Cell Phone
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for. 02/02/2014

This review is from: Huawei Fusion 2 U8665 Black 3G 800MHz Unlocked GSM Android Cell Phone

Pros: Good durability and materials, very nice scratch- and shatter-resistant screen. Android 2.3 is user friendly, stable, and easy to work with. Navigation through the menus and screens was a breeze, and the scrolling wallpaper feature was rather nifty.

Cons: Unfortunately, this model became a rather large pain closer to 8-9 months of ownership. The SIM card slot became unstable, and would at this point require soldering the contacts to make the phone usable again. At first it was a minor inconvenience, the phone simply needed to be power cycled. However, the issue turned into having to remove the battery and re-seating the SIM card every few minutes in order to use the phone.

Other Thoughts: I can recommend this phone to anyone new to smart phones looking for an inexpensive model. However, be warned that the model is inexpensive for a reason, and won't last a long period of time.
