Most Favorable Review

Very pleased with my first Gigabyte board

GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Great board and good set of features. I got this board as a combo deal with a Phenom II X4 965. Had no problems getting it up and running after hooking all the cables and installing the memory.

Cons: None yet

Overall Review: This is my first from scratch build in nearly ten years, so I don't have many references to compare with, but Gigabyte seems to offer a good product. By new system so far Rosewill Challenger case GA-880GA-UD3H motherboard AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Editon CPU Coolmaster SilentPro 700 watt PSU 4 Gigs of G.Skill DDR3 1600 RAM 1 TB Seagate Baracuda SATA harddrive Still deciding on a decent graphics card, but the intergrated Radeon plays older games like Battlefield 2 well enough.

updated review

Turtle Beach EAR FORCE M5 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset

Pros: Still good and comfortable headphones

Cons: worthless inline microphone.

Overall Review: I bought these specifically for videogame voice chat. The microphone is simply not sensitive enough and worthless for this task. Buy a boom microphone. The inline approach does not work from an engineering standpoint.

AMD for life

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X - Ryzen 5 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 6-Core 3.7 GHz Socket AM4 65W Desktop Processor - 100-100000065BOX
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X - Ryzen 5 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 6-Core 3.7 GHz Socket AM4 65W Desktop Processor - 100-100000065BOX

Pros: Replaced a 2600X with very noticeable increase in performance. Highly energy efficient

Cons: none

Overall Review: If you have an older Ryzen you can get a huge boost in gaming performance by upgrading to this chip without needing to buy another motherboard. A cheap and worthwhile upgrade if you are not buying a new system.

Ok entry level into 1440 high refresh

GIGABYTE M27Q-PRO 27" 165Hz 1440P KVM Gaming Monitor, 2560 x 1440 SS IPS Display, 1ms (GTG) Response Time, 98% DCI-P3, 1x Display Port 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 3x USB 3.0, 1x USB Type-C
GIGABYTE M27Q-PRO 27" 165Hz 1440P KVM Gaming Monitor, 2560 x 1440 SS IPS Display, 1ms (GTG) Response Time, 98% DCI-P3, 1x Display Port 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 3x USB 3.0, 1x USB Type-C

Pros: Mate Black body looks good with most setups Good color performance Sub-$400 Good size for 1440P No problems with high refresh so far.

Cons: Poor finish quality Adjustment button located on the back of the panel not front. Garbage stand (front facing V-stand has large footprint that may interfere with a large mouse pad. Slight dimming near the edge of the screen

Overall Review: I am somewhat satisfied with this monitor. I bought this monitor on sale even though the final price is not what NewEgg tempted me with the initial email they sent me. I give it a 3.5 conditionally with the score trending towards 4.0 if they can reliably get the price $350 or under. I really don't like the base stand. It motivated me to buy a desk arm mount now that I have dual monitor setup. I am enjoying that setup though so some good came of it.

Slightly too long

(6 Pack)  Designed For Samsung Galaxy A21 Screen Protector, High Definition Clear  (Pet)
(6 Pack) Designed For Samsung Galaxy A21 Screen Protector, High Definition Clear (Pet)

Pros: Good price, generous number of protector sheets and zero bubbles.

Cons: In general I really like this product. I have a A21 Tracfone that I recently bought. The phone is a fingerprint magnet on all surfaces including the screen. This screen protector improves this problem quite a bit. I did have to cut off between a 1/4" and 1/2" off the bottom edge though. I sacrificed several sheets before I perfected the shape I liked. Use a sharp blade or paper cutter for this. I finished with 45 degree cuts on the bottom corners using scissors.

Overall Review: Product seems decent. Will buy again if needed.

excellent thumbdrive

Team Fusion Plus II 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model TG016GF105LB
Team Fusion Plus II 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model TG016GF105LB

Pros: I really like the size, finish and shape of this drive. The black metal housing and not overly distracting red activity light makes it good if you are using it in a home theater setup.

Cons: no included lanyard cable. No biggy I since it is going on a keyring anyway.

Overall Review: Ordered on a Monday, arrived Saturday via EggSaver. I Filled up drive with several large video files and the write speed was near 10 MBps.
