3 out of 5 eggs Cranky BIOS endless boot loops 03/07/2013

This review is from: ASUS E45M1-M PRO AMD E-450 APU AMD Hudson M1 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU Combo

Pros: Small, Low power/ low heat, attractive

Cons: Quirky BIOS, unstable operation, poor memory compatibility

Other Thoughts: This is my second board. Board 1 was DOA out of the box. Newegg replaced it with another. I have just coaxed windows 7 premium on it and got everything up to date. On every reboot during the update process, the BIOS would crash and I couldn't get the board to post until pushing reset several times, rapidly. It never really boots up properly. Makes me dread shutting it down. Once it's running, it works fine while you use it but when it sleeps, it crashes or freezes. Asus is normally my "go to" brand for little builds like this. I am very disappointed in the instability.
One other thing, it's finicky about memory. I haven't found any it will take 8 GB of. It will only run with 4 GB of memory so far. I have some other options to try as far as brands later. If I have new data on that front, I will update my review if I can.
I may try to flash the BIOS if this continues. Heed this warning: This motherboard is trouble. Choose something else.

Pioneer SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair

4 out of 5 eggs Good sound/ Nice looking 09/04/2012

This review is from: Pioneer SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair

Pros: They look very sharp in black woodgrain. The connectors are very nice gold plated high end stuff. Very nice size for a shelf speaker. Sound is crisp is a tiny bit weak on bass due to tiny driver.

Cons: Don't let the grills fool you. The speakers are quite a bit smaller than the grills. They work very hard but they are easily overpowered. My 20 watt amp can ruin them pretty quickly I think

Other Thoughts: The speakers have good sound. I am glad I only paid $50 for them which is a bargain for this quality, fit and finish of speakers. Bass suffers due to the 4" woofer although the bass that exists is lovely. The boxes are very nice.

AGT Compact OBD-II CAN Diagnostic Code Reader Scanner Tool
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Simple to use. Look up codes on the web. No frills....

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: "Advanced German Technology"...AGT. Made in China. Now I found that quite amusing and I wasn't offended. The seller did an excellent job of replacing a defective unit I received . Smart seller who knows feedback is everything and good feedback comes from a good experience. Because he replaced it swiftly with no quibbling, he earns perfect feedback.
