Pros: I wasn't too sure how'd I'd like going back to a manual keyboard after years of using the cheapo ones. It only took me a couple weeks to fall in love with it. It's been great for gaming and just general use too.
Pros: This replaced an old dell switch I've been using for years. It was beginning to act up a little and fan went out in it. This cisco switch has been running flawless for several months now.
Overall Review: great product, I recommend it and would buy again if the need arose.
Pros: It has worked on every drive I have used on it so far. I have several laptop drives and desktop HDs lying around I wanted to wipe before putting them out in a yard sale. This fit the bill perfectly. In the future I'll probably use it for extra storage backups.
Overall Review: Highly recommend it.
Pros: bought this to speed up an older system. It does its job great. It boots to windows in 30-40 seconds and loads programs very quickly.
Cons: none so far
Pros: I have two of these cases. No sharp edges, easy HD and systemboard installation. Comes with all the parts needed. What I like most about it is the ports are all at the top of the case and easy to get to if you put it under your desk.
Cons: Not a big con and did not take away an egg for it but the front USB ports are USB 3.0 only. I bought this for an older systemboard that did not have 3.0 ports. I ended up buying an addon USB 3.0 card to solve the problem.
Overall Review: Used it to put some spare parts to use...older Intel Core 2 duo and a Sapphire 5770 video card. Works great.
Pros: I had a bunch of spare parts sitting around that needed a case and pwr supply. This PS worked great in that configuration. The cables are all very long which was worked out well because the case I bought has the power supply mounted on the bottom.
Overall Review: was perfect for what I needed.
Pros: My old BenQ is starting to dim some and lose it crispness after 5 years of use. It's been such a great display so I bought one of these 27" ones. It has so far lived up to my expectations. I'd rather watch movies on this than my new 55" TV.
Overall Review: Wish I would have pulled the lever on this when it was cheaper.
Pros: Sounds great compared to my old receiver. Has plenty of HMDI ports. Surround sound was easy to setup.
Cons: none, I researched quite a bit before buying. This was onsale at the price point I was willing to spend.
Overall Review: This receive destroys the sony I had before. The surround sound is much better and very easy to setup. I caught this on sale for $250. Well worth it at that price.
Pros: pretty much as I expected. Worked well out of the box.
Cons: Not a huge con but their was not a support post hole at the corner of the board where the memory is located. You need to be careful when adding/removing memory from the board. if you look at the top down image listed on the product page you'll see is not there.
Overall Review: I bought this as an upgrade to my son's intel dual core. It's been running a week or so with no problems. Windows will need to be reloaded. Also if you are upgrading from an older system like I did make sure you have a sata DVD drive if you plan on reloading windows that way. His was an old IDE dvd so I ended up having to convert the CD to a Thumb drive to reload windows.
Pros: I run high settings on all my games at 1920 X 1200 with no issues. It is a very fast card.
Cons: The fans on the Sapphire cards are junk. After about a year one of the fans on my card stopped working. Both fans appear to be cheaply made. I'd expect better for a $270 card - at the time I purchased it.
Overall Review: Sapphire says to RMA the card through the retailer. NewEgg doesn't cross ship so having my PC down for two weeks really is not an option.
Pros: Small, easy installation. Lots of USB ports. Decently priced
Cons: 1st board I bought lasted 5 months. I bought another from Newegg when the 1st died so I did not have to wait forever on an RMA. Second board died 2 months later. Hopefully 3rd time is the charm with this board or I'll be switching back to Asus.
Pros: small and easy to install
Cons: Worked for 6 mo and then failed. Would not boot bios at all. Ordered a replacement from New Egg. Attempting to RMA the old board. Gigabyte's technical support only allows you to email. Not a big fan of this option.
Overall Review: I dont much care for the heat sink holder on this board. It's a bit flimsy for my liking. Intel is probably more to blame for this though.
