Pros: Owned this laptop for 2 weeks, so far so good for gaming. Played battlefield V nice and smoothly on ultra setting. Temperature around 65-70c depending on room temperature.
Cons: No display port. Dont know how to use G-sync as most monitors need display port to run g-sync. Battery does seem to run out very fast, 1-2 hours of light browsing.
Overall Review: I would recommend this laptop to others but Ill not buy on Newegg again. Paid for 1day shipping on Thursday and tracking number was out in same day but didnt receive my laptop till following week Tuesday, and Newegg refuses to refund the shipping fee. This is not the Newegg few years back.
Pros: I set this little wifi extender with wired setting (connected to the original router) which it will give the extender max speed from the router. The extender is placed right next to the router. (btw my router is from verizon with plan 150mb/150mb). NOW, at same place in basement, before I get 4 bars signal from the router, now I get full 5 bars from the extender! and the speed from the router is max. 30mb download. now from the extender I get max 80mb!!!!!!!!
can't be happier !~!!
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: I bought this product for boosting my wifi speed and signal strength which it works! I dont if this little extend would get disc randomly. I guess i will find it out. ~! if it gets disconnect randomly ill come back and write another review. Great product and very cheap price!
Pros: small, light, very nice looking. I haven't use it for anything yet. but i just love this laptop just by how it looks now. worth the money! I'm planing to buy another one after this review!
Cons: After Gigabyte showing me the "damage" that I done to the motherboard (which i didn't) I now know that the damage was on the corner of the motherboard. I received a completely new product. The siverplastic for the motherboard was all sealed! However, the corner of the MB was bended. And yes I thought this was the design for the mb with a bended corner since it was actually working at beginning. (this is my first time buildin a PC. who would ever done such dmg to mb? bend the whole corner of a mb? ). I blame gigabyte for having a product like this packed. Gigabyte told me my warranty was voided since there was "physical damage". Yet, I received a MB with bended corner right out of the box. There was nothing I can do. So I called Newegg for help. Apparently I can't return this MB to newegg since i've cut out the UPC tag. However After showing Newegg the pictures,Newegg was nice enough to give me a 50 dollars refund if I buy another mb from them.
Overall Review: I rated 5eggs only for Newegg, for having supper nice customer support. Newegg has never disappointed me! 1 Egg for Gigabyte customer support. As they didn't really care what happened to me. As I said I would not but any product from Gigabyte again. I don't want to received another item like this MB and have helpless customer support from Gigabyte. THANK YOU NEWEGG!!!!!!!NEWEGG ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! AS ALWAYS.
Pros: it does overclocking.
Cons: Buyers be aware that you might not be able to get a replacement/fix when your motherboard is died. I bought this Motherboard 3 weeks ago, used it for a week and half. It stopped working after during a boot. I RMA it to Gigabyte cuz I did my mail in rebate. Yet, I got a reply that my Motherboard was Physically damaged. "Due to physical damage, the warranty on this gigabyte product is voided and
the item is being returned as is.
The PCB is damaged." thats all they replied in email. I couldn't believe that......I've only took out my MB once which was for installing the fan! I was very careful about every parts of my PC since its my first time building a PC. The motherboard was sitting in the case working for whole week! and it stopped working during a boot!!! and yet they said i did physical damage to the board......
Overall Review: If they return me this died MB, with no replacement or anything... I would never buy Gigabyte products again. NEVER!
Pros: ITS HUGEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not sure if this is a pro for some ppl but yea its huge....its 2.5 larger than normal mousepad. This mousepad is smooth! and its over good for gaming!! I love this mousepad compare to the old ones that i have. Mouse is more sensetive with this mousepad
Cons: Its too big??? lolz. but i'm fine with it. It can go under my keyboard :D
Overall Review: Recommend for gamers!!!!!
Pros: many features as what other reviews said. worked 2 weeks then died. The motherboard would led up for .2 sec. when it was workin I easyly oc my q6600 to 3.0Ghz with Ocz 8500 rams(1066Mhz).
Cons: Blue heat sink is annoying sometimes, cuz of third party cpu cooler. Limited the space. Few 3 pin connectors are in bad position. If you have a big graphic card like GTX 260, the card will block those connectors. Theres no way you can install another GTX 260 because the 2nd PCI-E X8 is in between 2 PCI slots. These 2 PCI slots are higher than the PCI-2 X8 therefore if you try to install 2nd GTX 260 the card would not go all the way down. Even it would go all the way down, the Graphic card would block the pins for power switch and the front port usb pins on the mb. Other than that, this MB is pretty awesome for this price. I did the mail in rebate so theres no way i can RMA this mb to newegg. Wonder how long is the Gigabte RMA process. I would not wait for another month and half, so I'm buying another this MB. It sucks that I had a DOA psu (TX 750w) then now the MB died. seems like I have all the bad lucks. Come on newegg! Brand new computer but couldnt turn on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Overall Review: current build Q6600, OCZ 8500 (1066) 8G. 2x WD 640G, Gigabte Ga-ep45-ud3p. stock cpu fan. For this price, this MB is very good. I still suggest people to buy this MB although mine died in 2 weeks...I just have bad lucks...........hopefully Gigabte wont take long to process my RMA!!!!!!! I would give it 5 stars if they send my MB back with 2 weeks!
Pros: Pretty stable board when its working.
Cons: Died after 1 week. I was overclocking with different voltage and trying to get the system stable. The system always fail to boot first 2 times. Last time it booted 2 times and then completely stopped working. The MB would led up for 0.2 sec and shuts off. I'm pretty sure its my psu's problem. it a brand new PSU and it can turn my old MB on with no problem.
Overall Review: I wonder how long the RMA process gonna be since I alrdy did my MIR.
Pros: Very nice psu, with very quiet fan. so many connectors. I gave 4 star because I got a doa. The 2nd one is working very well so far. Hope it will last long. I would suggest anyone to buy this psu. Very cheap price. (it was 90 dollars after mail in rebate when i bought it)
Cons: Got a DOA the first time, returned it.
Overall Review: I bought another same PSU, so far its working fine. I was suggested to buy this PSU at computer stores. Current build, EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card, 2 sets of OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500), GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel, CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply, 2x WD 640G 3.0G/s blue hard drives.
Pros: quiet fan
Cons: Tested once when it just arrived. after 10 days I put it into my new build computer but it wasnt working anymore. I tested again with wire and my old motherboard and it didn't work!. sigh. bad luck i guess?
Pros: I went many places like best -buy, officedepo, the price there were all something around 25$; even when they are on sale they were 15$. Here is only 6.99 ( when I bought it was 7.99) no big deal, still cheap.
Overall Review: I wish newegg will sell some MicroSD cards thats 4G or bigger.
