Pros: Fast shipping arrived undamaged. Was relatively inexpensive.
Cons: The screen no matter what you adjust has a slightly bluish tint. The images are out of focus, sitting directly below my 43 inch Hisense TV which has a much clearer image with better overall color balance.
Pros: At less than $200 shipped I no longer have to live with a stripe on my screen, the color was not perfect but I was able to adjust it to more than acceptable performance.
Cons: Only 3 HDMI inputs, that was easily solved by a $15 HDMI switch, I am using the mini audio jack on the back to feed my stereo audio using the variable audio out option.
Pros: I'm stumped to think of a single positive thing to say about this mobo, I will make sure and mention this at every chance I get, being ripped off, I feel it's my duty to make sure others know of my experiences and not take a chance on a declining poorly run company like MSI. May MSI fail in horrible misery
Cons: the combination of this motherboard and an msi video card has made my system almost unusable, drivers for the video card are terrible, the control system has been changed from catalyst to some lame gaming setup and a terrible version of eye infinity, if my system goes into power saving, it locks up and will not respond so I have to do a forced restart, this has been such a bad experience I have sworn to never use this schitt brand again, if I could I would return both of these pieces of junk and get any other brand, no more amd video either, AMD is so fxcked up now I cannot support them, Nvidia seems to be my last choice
Overall Review: avoid msi junk and amd altogether. I would return this, but I would rather get my frustrations out on it by smashing it to bits, no one would want to deal with this on a daily basis, I use my PC for design work, and this has got to be the absolutely worst computing experience I have ever had, I am filled with hate for China and MSI, my only hope is that hell opens up and swallows them
Pros: None, sine it is shorted out and cuts out all the time, useless
Cons: Cuts out, shorting internally, useless, avoid this company with a passion, took forever to get here, for such cheap item it has caused more than it's share of frustration, pure junk
Overall Review: what is the point of polluting your site with useless products from questionable companies, I stand by this statement even more strongly now, Chinese crapola
Pros: none, I don't waste my time gaming
Cons: well to sell this to me as added value, to actually make it a separate charge, well if I had my way, I'd get the money back, the card sucks and getting an online download does not give me even a penny's worth of value, pushing junk content as a value added item is rather funny, again I see MSI failing to do the right thing, received a similar junk worthless download when I purchased my MSI mother board, is this really the extent of what a vendor sees as good business, seems teh Chinese continue to grow more and more detached from what good business is
Pros: None so far, since I have yet to get the card setup, drivers crash, control panel is all new and will not work, about ready to return this and never shop for another amd video card
Cons: so far owning the card seems to be a big con, I have reinstalled windows 3 times now
Now this card is beyond teh return period and neither MSI or Newegg wanst this joke of a card back, using dual displays with the amd drivers is a lost cause. seriously hate this company now, will never buy another MSI or amd product, period, all intel and nvidia for me, many hours of wasted productivity and far too much frustration to ever warrnt even connsidering these brands, poor customer support will ruin your rep
Cons: My system has always had issues recognizing this drive, it has stopped working on many occasions and all data lost, always requiring a format to work again, this last time it has just stopped working and is not visible on my system. Tried to contact PQI, so far no luck in getting through to support, the support email is dead, no one answers the phone, it acted like a personal phone number and allowed me to leave a message, very fishy
Overall Review: another piece of chinese garbage, to small to be a paperweight, so it is officially useless
Cons: will break shortly after 90 days
Overall Review: not worth much in scrap plastic
Pros: I use this on my laptop, it's nice and small and carries easy, even though it is mostly plastic, it has a nice feel to it, and looks nice too
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: I have used this in both 3.0 and 2.0 and it has worked flawlessly
Pros: none for me
Cons: I have already posted a negative review of this card, the manufacturer responded, but not helpful since I did not miss anything on install, and tried several times to do a full clean install of windows 7 and the card was slow and failed to boot on multiple occasions when used to boot from. I have always connected the 4 pin floppy type power connector, usb3 is painfully slow or refuses to see my usb drives, for me this card has been a major disappointment, even though it was cheap, I'd take a refund if you really back your product, and I have tried the new eltron drivers as others have suggested, did not fix my issues, glad to hear others have had success, just not me :(
Overall Review: none
Pros: These are great sounding headphones, the major advantage these have over the basic DJ model is that they have aluminum Bowls, much more rigid than the standard plastic, which reduces unwanted resonances that would muddy the sound. The mids and highs are very natural, the bass is excellent, especially after a more extended break in, the speaker surrounds break in and the speakers really sing after a few hundred hours of play. These are also very light and comfortable to wear for extended periods. I was lucky and got a pair on Black Friday for $119 The headband separates to give a very stable fit, they will not easily slip off your head. They also give above average isolation form outside noise.
Cons: The cable would be my only Con, a bit short for portable players, I ended up making a short extension to use with my iPod in my top lab coat pocket
Overall Review: It gets the music right, so you can forget about everything else and just get into your favorite tunes
Pros: was cheap, for a reason, since it does not work
Cons: will need to unplug every 15 minutes sometimes it lasts an hour or 2, I drop connection so often it was unacceptable, had only used it to connect to a pc by wire, after dropping another provider, we had 2, I started using the n network, the router is down stairs, well in just 24 hours I have reset at least 20 times before I swapped in my old router, seamless connection ever since.
Overall Review: will netgear take this back in trade for a working model, or is it just a stupid 30$ I spent, and will avoid the brand from here on out.
Pros: so far it has worked flawlessly
Cons: a few times, the drive has gone into some kind of search loop, or something, where it just vibrates, and makes a terrible noise. woke up last night to the racket, works fine after I restart the net book, but it is a weird, and scary that 1 Tb could die at any moment. Everything is backed up, so I guess I will just see what happens.
Overall Review: This is in a MSI U123 red netbook, with 9 cell battery, running winxp atm, but I have had it running win7 before.
