This review is from: SAMSUNG Desktop Cradle For Galaxy S i897 ECR-D981BEGSTA
Pros: Solid unit, a good angle, really a good fit for desk use (eventually) or as an alarm clock by the bed.
Cons: As other users mentioned:
-You cant sync anything with it, so dont bother with the dock next to your computer
-You cant listen to music through headphones with it (it covers the audio port and the audio port in the dock wont work until Samsung finally releases the 2.2 update which has been delayed for 4+ months now), so it's not a good fit for a cube
Other Thoughts: Not sure why they are selling these when the fundamental things you'd expect (the audio port and data port actually doing what they are supposed to) are supposed to come in some future release of Android that Samsung has delayed every month with no end in sight. Should be a good dock eventually, but stay away till you have the 2.2 (Froyo) update.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG Vehicle Mount For Galaxy S i897 ECS-M981BEGSTA
Pros: Newegg definitely has one of the cheapest prices for this and they are a fantastic store to order from, as always. The unit is sturdy and gives you the option of doing a windshield or dash mount (interchangeably). It grips the phone well and the sliding dock mechanism is well designed. Should be a great phone dock eventually.
Cons: It doesn't work on the Captivate (AT&T version). You can dock it, but the dock covers the audio jack on the phone and the audio out port on the dock wont work until Samsung releases the Android 2.2 update to AT&T (it's been delayed every month for 4+ months now). Until Samsung releases the software to make this usable, i'd avoid it unless you have blue-tooth in your car and want to handle the audio manually. It's really a shame that they are advertising and selling this product when your going to have to wait a few months to be able to use it.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy it if you don't have the stock Froyo (Android 2.2) update on your phone. For AT&T (Captivate) users, this means you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P5K-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It's a nice motherboard, and it has all of the standard features of other motherboards of it's class. When it works, it works well
Cons: Asus has poor customer support. I used to be a big abit fan but with the latest computer upgrade, a friend convinced me to try asus because he was a big fan of it. The motherboard worked perfectly for a few weeks then randomly started blue-screening on me. I started swapping out other parts and troubleshooting before determining it was the motherboard. During this, i also bought 2 more sticks of RAM for the board so i could do Dual channel in it but the system wouldn't post with any memory in the B Slots. Obviously a motherboard issue, but i spent the next month playing "templated email replies" with asus support before they finally agreed to RMA the board. The only caviat is that they want me to ship the board to them (on my own dime) so they can troubleshoot it and then send it back (or send a replacement if warranted). I dont have the time to have my main system down for weeks while some tech in another (unnamed) country plays with it. Thanks, i'll buy different board
Other Thoughts: When it wasn't bluescreening, the board was nice. I like some of the features on the system. The SATA connections and the RAM seem poorly placed but other then that, it was a nice board. Just dont expect much support if it doesn't work out of the box.READ FULL REVIEW
