ASUS P9X79 WS LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI CEB Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Great Intel board... Just not perfect... 02/10/2013

This review is from: ASUS P9X79 WS LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI CEB Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS

Pros: Feature rich, options galore...

Cons: Unstable Marvell chipset...

Other Thoughts: As wonderful a build I put together for a client, the RAID-1 created on the Marvell chipset kept failing randomly. And what added a sour taste to my mouth, when I tried to switch the RAID-1 from the Marvell chipset to the Intel chipset, the OS stopped booting properly. After reformatting all the drive using the Intel chipset, rebuilding the RAID-1, reinstalling the OS and drivers, the system is finally stable. For myself, I would consider buying this motherboard again. However, I won't even consider the Marvell chipset. Which in my professional experience, I never really had issues with Marvell. A shame though that this one chipset holds the board short of being the finest Intel motherboards I have ever worked with...

One other note, maxxing out the RAM underclocks memory speed. Purchased Corsair 1600 DDR3 only runs @ 1066...

-System Build-
Intel Xeon E5 2620 @ 2.0 / 2.5 GHz
64GB Corsair 1.6GHz (8x8GB automatically forces 1066MHz)
250GB WD Raptor SATA (OS)
128GB OCZ Agility 4 SSD (pagefile)
2x 1TB Toshiba HDD (RAID-1)
4GB nVidia Quadro K5000
LG DVD Recorder
MS Windows 7 Pro x64

KINGWIN KH-201U3-BK Aluminum 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs Ohh Emm Gee it's flimsy... 08/03/2012

This review is from: KINGWIN KH-201U3-BK Aluminum 2.5" Black SATA USB 3.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Umm... I paid for an extra USB3 cable and got another mini screwdriver???

Cons: It's very first enclosure I've ever assembled that the circuit board gave way and popped...

Other Thoughts: I am an IT Developer here in NYC for over 12+ years and worked with all types of technology over the years. From external parallel/SCSI/FireWire 400 & 800/ USB 1, 2 & 3 drives, I've built them all. And never in my professional experience have had one fall apart in my hands. I highly doubt newEGG will refund me...

PNY 32GB Attache USB 2.0 Flash Drive (P-FD32GATT03-GE)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs It works, but be warned... 03/10/2012

This review is from: PNY 32GB Attache USB 2.0 Flash Drive (P-FD32GATT03-GE)

Pros: It's compact and decent capacity for the price.

Cons: The unit collapsed on itself and almost lost vital data.

Other Thoughts: Almost had a panic attack when I plugged it in and three computers didn't recognized it. I literally had to pull it apart in order to get to the circuit board. Fortunately, I was able to plug it in and pull all data from it. Casing is now mangled. Going to purchase from another company another 32 or 64GB unit. It's a shame because PNY products I haven't had too many difficulties with over the years... oh well.
