AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This APU is excellent. Fast, built in GPU, dual graphics capability, and inexpensive. What more could you ask for?

Cons: I bought this as an upgrade from the A10-5800K. This isn't really a fault of the the APU, but be aware that most motherboards require a bios update for this upgrade, which can be a pain for novice system builders. If I didn't have the old processor, I would have been dead in the water. By now, I assume motherboards that can support this APU come with the correct bios to do so.

Other Thoughts: Mine is overclocked to 4.62 GHz using MSI's OC Genie capability. This is on the stock cooler in a Corsair 600T case.

I use an additional HD 6670 GPU for dual graphics, which does great at HD resolutions for most games I play. More serious gamers will use more powerful GPU's, which makes the built in GPU unnecessary, but it's still nice to have in case your graphics card has a problem. It also makes for a very scalable system.

Microsoft 7ZJ-00001 USB Wired Ergonomic Comfort Curve Desktop 3000

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect Blend of Form and Function 05/02/2014

This review is from: Microsoft 7ZJ-00001 USB Wired Ergonomic Comfort Curve Desktop 3000

Pros: This keyboard is perfect, as long as you're looking for a wired keyboard. It has all the standard buttons, volume +/-, Play/Pause, and a dedicated calculator button. There are no ridiculous macro keys, modifier keys, unnecessary lights, etc, and no software to install. It just works.

Let me emphasize: I love the dedicated calculator button!

This keyboard is the perfect combination of the quickness and short button throw of the Apple keyboard and the ergonomic features of the Microsoft Wireless Desktop Ergonomic keyboard, without the big price tag.

Standard windows shortcuts are labeled, i.e. Ctrl+C for copy, etc.

Cons: The body is gloss black plastic, so it is a magnet for fingerprints and pet hair, and also reflects the monitor. The keys are matte black, thankfully.

Other Thoughts: It is slightly curved, but doesn't feel curved...just comfortable. There is no gap between keys for the left and right hand, which is usually what frustrates people about ergonomic keyboards.

I use this keyboard for everything; gaming, programming, writing, video editing.

Buy one.

SIIG 3-port 1394 (FireWire) PCI adapter Model NN-400012-S8

3 out of 5 eggs Windows 7, Yes. M-Audio, No. 05/02/2014

This review is from: SIIG 3-port 1394 (FireWire) PCI adapter Model NN-400012-S8

Pros: No drivers required in Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Works well with Firewire hard drives.

Cons: Does not work with M-Audio Profire 2626 audio interface.

Other Thoughts: I spent hours trying to get this card to work with my Profire 2626, with no success. Legacy drivers, registry editing, install-order guesswork, yourself the headache and spend just a little more and get the other SIIG card Newegg sells, which also has the TI chipset and is confirmed to work with several audio interfaces.
