Cons: I have the same problem as the other two posters below me. Would power until post screen then it would shut down. Bios was inaccessible. Tried everything: Changing psu, ram, clearing cmos and nothing worked! This mobo is only seven months old and it was never overclocked.
Overall Review: This mobo is good as paperweight. Sadly my business (and client!) suffers as we are stuck with Gigabytes painful RMA process. If this mobo could be send back to Newegg I would have done so a long time ago. This is my last purchase from gigabyte. Gigabytes products are great until you have to return them.
Pros: Reliable, silent. I have this baby powering a HIS 6870 HD, 5 120mm fans, 1tb HDD, 1 optical drive and a overclocked Core2Quad. So far my system have run reliable and stable without issues. I bought this power supply for $40 and for this price I would consider it a steal. Also I have it since 2008. It has been running in my current system for 6 months.
Cons: SHORT cables! I have a NZXT M59 case and the 20+4 and 4 pin cable are almost out of reach. If you are planning on having this in a mid-size case make sure it fits! I had to buy a sata power extension for my optical drive. Minus 1 star for the short cables (and lack of them!).
Overall Review: For 54.99 this PSU is a no-go considering the Antec 650 Earthwatts is only $5 more! More power, cables that are longer and 80 Plus Bronze certification. However if you pick this up cheap, I highly recommend it! I live in Puerto Rico, so a 100F day is pretty normal here and so far it hasn't let me down.
Pros: I bought it for my PS3, and let me tell you, it beats most lcds and monitors on the market. It took me 10 minutes to set it up the way I like it, and it looks awesome!! You can't beat it for the price. No back light bleeding nor dead pixels, its perfect! Menu's are easy to learn.
Cons: Flimsy speakers, but come on, its a darn pc monitor, since when do they have THX quality sound?? Exactly.
Overall Review: I didn't mention the stand as a con because the way I have it, I don't need to tilt it. Wish it came with a remote and more hdmi and usb connectors. Also, this lcd monitor beat my expectations. If you need a small gaming lcd, with fast response time and full hd, look no further!
