Pros: Good quality Connectors. Serves its purpose.
Cons: Did not come with a SATA drive.
Overall Review: This cable came in a anti-static enclosure. A nice touch for a quality cable. After using many SATA power adapters I will never buy others. Most other adapters are cheaply made with poorly constructed connectors. This one is not one of those. Great quality and dual SATA support. Thanks Newegg!
Pros: eSATA II, Plenty of USB headers, HDMI.
Cons: eSATA ports use internal SATA connectors. One and only one fan connector. Front Panel connections unclear. Manual is all but useless. Boot SATA to Win XP requires floppy drive.
Overall Review: I am really disappointed in this purchase and will not buy this board again. First of all the eSATA ports steal two of the four internal connectors leaving you with only two. RAID is required throughout or not at all. Floppy is required to boot from SATA and no floppy is provided. You must make one using the included CD. Floppy is a dead media. Catch a clue AsRock. There is only one 3 pin fan connector besides the CPU fan. All other fans must use PSU power connectors. The manual is huge but only has 30 or so pages in english and no directions for front panel connectors. You need to look at the board or the pin map with a magnifying glass to read where each one connects. The BIOS is pretty straight forward but lacks most of the usefulness you see with others. The motherboard CD is sparsely populated and does not even include AMD tools. No hardware monitoring software included. I will not be buying this board again.
Pros: Great Power Supply for the price(450W) w/ PCI-E 6 PIN and SATA Power. Nice Tool-less chasis and drive cages. No sharp edges. Power Cabling alignment system built in. Air Filter.
Overall Review: For those who do not understand you may need to align the blue tool-less drive cage screws with your equipment holes. This may take some wiggling till aligned but once matched these lock right into place. This computer case is a good selection for anyone wanting to build a budget or mid-range system.
Pros: 1GB Boost, Plug n' Play.
Overall Review: I bought this RAM to upgrade a laptop I was given recently (an HP Pavilion ZE4900). The existing RAM was a single 256MB PC2700 RAM module to which I added this for a total of 1.2GB. This laptop is running Windows XP and as anyone knows 256MB and Windows XP is slow, but this boost in memory brought the laptop up to normal operating speeds and reduced the hard drive activity. A-Data has once again provided a quality product to me. Thanks to Newegg as well for the prompt delivery.
Great Price, Excellent Card
Pros: Great price for a mid-range card. Perfect for HD output and very nice for gaming. Single slot active cooling(quiet). Crossfire setup. Perfect for media centers.
Overall Review: I bought this card for mid-tower media center for playing games and working with blu-ray HD video. Excellent at both and a very nice price. The fan is quiet or at least quiet enough that I can not hear it during lulls in the movies. A good selection of adapters for any type of display setup. I did not use drivers disc since with all hardware installations I go online and get the latest ones. If you are looking for a mid-range media card that will allow you to play your games too this is the card you should get. The 2600XT is an excellent choice.
Pros: Nice scope. Includes a couple optics. Sturdy Tripod and excellent azimuth locking. Good price for an amateur scope. Includes carrying case with pouch storage for optics. Caps for all optics and a lens cleaning cloth.
Overall Review: I bought this for my kid and he has been having a blast with it ever since. He showed interest in using mine so I figured I would get him his own.
