APEC Water RO-PH90 Ultimate Alkaline Mineral 90GPD 6-Stage RO Drinking Water System
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I love this water filter system. It is very high quality. It makes a big difference to the taste of my water. Installation of the system was easy, the only difficulty being the crawling around under the sink (I'm on the bigger side...)

The hookup connections are very cool. Most of them are simply inserting PEX tubing into self-sealing connectors.

I went with this larger unit over smaller ones because I enjoy cooking. It is just me and two small dogs, so I could have gone with one half this size. I have been able to do a lot more cooking, and with fresh, clean water.

Cons: This unit is fairly large. You should double-check your install location.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried it without the PH alkaline mineral stage. It might not be needed. Water tastes great, though.

Wish I would have simply removed my garbage disposal before doing the installation. I spent a lot of time trying to access a couple hard to reach things.

StarTech 4 Port USB 3.0 PCI Express PCIe Controller Card - 2 Ext 2 Int w/ SATA Power Model PEXUSB3S2E2I
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Card is reliable. Performance seems adequate, though I've never tried to measure it.

Cons: The power connector is not connected to the board well mechanically. Mine was loose, being held together only by the wires and solder. The tabs that should bind the connector to the board are loose or easily unseated. So now I am cautious about moving any cables around inside my case to keep the connector from detaching and possibly shorting.

Other Thoughts: Be careful when installing.

Mionix NAOS 5000 7 Buttons USB Laser 5040 dpi Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs computer will not boot 03/27/2011

This review is from: Mionix NAOS 5000 7 Buttons USB Laser 5040 dpi Mouse

Pros: Extra buttons. Cool packaging.

Cons: Doesn't work. My computer will not boot with this mouse.

Other Thoughts: I'm not a gamer. I am switching from a trackball to a mouse. I thought the gaming mice would be a good option since they have programmable buttons. I do some video editing and thought it would be handy having some programmable buttons on the mouse.

In a very rare moment of pre-Internet consumerism for me, I purchased this mouse without doing any research. Not sure if that would have helped, though, as reviews seem to generally be positive. Unfortunately, some of these reviews give it a higher rating than deserved even while noting the mouse's propensity to blue screen or cause your system not to boot.

So my problem: computer will not boot with this mouse plugged in.

I tried two different USB hubs and direct to the motherboard. The only way to get the computer to make it past POST is to unplug the mouse. That is not the way I roll.

I even upgraded the firmware on the mouse. My GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DQ6 motherboard has the latest BIOS.
