Nice Board

ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I haven't built that many systems, but this is by far the easiest MB I've worked with. Board is laid out pretty well and well documented in manual. Very stable, put the system together and it ran. Lots of connectors for SATA, fans, USB, etc. I'm not using SLI, that could be a future upgrade.

Cons: Not a real con - but I initially set up the audio incorrectly by using the wrong wiring for the headphone jack on my case. Once I used the HD audio plug and set the front panel audio support in the BIOS to HD Audio it worked correctly and has great sound.

Overall Review: I'm using Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB Kit DDR2-800 XMS2-6400 memory and have experimented with settings. 4-4-4-12 2T works flawlessly - the Corsair web site has a lot of info. My system: ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe, Athlon 64 X2 6000+, COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP case with 4 120MM fans, COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power RP-650-PCAR 650W PS, orsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB, GeForce 7300 GT Video Card - 512MB DDR2, Seagate 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive, SAMSUNG SATA 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe, ASUS Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM Drive, Maxtor 60GB ide HD, Vista Home Premium

Overall Review: I bought these for a 27 inch imac 2017. Put them in and worked immediately, the performance upgrade was very noticeable in Adobe Lightroom, which was my main goal.

Nice small bag

Lowepro LP34610-0EF Black Edit 140 Camcorder Cases
Lowepro LP34610-0EF Black Edit 140 Camcorder Cases

Pros: Well constructed, good protection, ample pockets, belt loops

Cons: velcro flap

Overall Review: This is good size bag for my Pentax Q. The main section has one divider, I have the Q on one side and a loupe on the other. There is an ample size zip pouch on the front, I use for batteries, mobile charger, cleaning cloths, remote, card, etc. A velcro pocket on each end, I'm using one for a filter and the other is holding the shoulder strap I don't use. There is a nice padded handle on top and two belt loops on the back, which I haven't used yet, but probably will. The only thing I don't like is the velcro flap that goes over the top zipper, it just doesn't seem necessary but it's not something that would keep me from buying another. A small bag like this could also work for lenses or tripod accessories, etc.

Steady

WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

Pros: Fast. quiet, works as it should

Cons: none noticed

Overall Review: Have only had this up and running about 10 days, but it has passed every test with no problems. This went into an 18 month old Dell that had a lightning strike destroy the hard drive. I think this drive has sped up the system. Was an easy install, even in a Dell box.

Great Prooduct

Pros: No hassle, uses auto settings in BIOS. Fast

Cons: none

Overall Review: I wanted to upgrade my 3 year old Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe but could no longer match the Corsair memory, so I bought this and removed the Corsair. Put them in, reset the BIOS memory settings to auto and fired it up, no problems at all. Of course newegg's shipping was very quick.

What a Bargain

Canon PIXMA MX310 2184B017AA Up to 22 ppm Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer
Canon PIXMA MX310 2184B017AA Up to 22 ppm Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: Does everything I need, printing , scanning, and an occasional fax. Very easy to use and the high quality output that I have grown accustomed to from Canon.

Cons: Wish it had different inktanks for each color.

Overall Review: A few years ago I had a couple of nice HP printers then I bought an HP multifunction machine which turned out to be junk. In the meantime I had purchsed a Canon ip3000 printer for my son to use at college, which he loved and raved about that we also bought one, still in use and performing flawlessly. When a scanner we had died, I bought a Lexmark all in one which was really junk, It stopped printing after the first inktank ran out and never did print very good quality, but for the price we kept it as a scanner. This machine has replaced that.
