Pros: The Seiki 39" lets me browse the web at 200% and still see the entire page. Movies look great to me and I see details in scenes that I have been unable to see previously. Light weight for the large size. Speakers are good for little speakers.
Cons: None for me.
Overall Review: Being legally blind, this monitor rolled ten or fifteen years off my worn out eyes. Glad that I bought it.
Pros: Hustles zeros and ones at 1Gb/s, well almost 1Gb/s.
Overall Review: I use these cables to connect PC to PC for large file transfers. If the motherboard has only one LAN port, I purchase a PCI network card so that the internet runs on my 100Mb/s network and the second LAN port is available for large file transfer. The 100Mb/s runs around 11MB/s and the crossover cable runs around 70 to 80MB/s. Much faster file transfer and the internet connection isn't constricted.
Pros: Stainless steel surface
Cons: Cannot see any
Overall Review: Tried to power it on before removing the protective strip in the battery compartment. After rereading the instructions and correcting my error, the scale turned on and worked. I no longer have the calibration weights that came with my Ohaus triple beam scale from my studies of chemistry in the 1960s and 70s but I am sure the people at Rosewill have calibration weights.
Pros: WORKED OUT OF THE VERY NICE BOX AND TIMED ITSELF WITH THE XMP PROFILE.
Overall Review: RUNNING A 16GB RAM DISK AND HAVE VIRTUAL MEMORY IN THE "AUTOMATICALLY MANAGE PAGING FILE SIZE FOR ALL DRIVES" MODE WHICH ALLOCATES ALL 32GB FOR PAGING FILE. INSTALLED ON AN ASRock X79 EXTREME6 WITH WINDOWS 8 PRO.
Pros: High quality stereo output.
Cons: Absolutely none.
Overall Review: Loaded the driver from a folder after downloading it from the website. Disabled onboard audio in the BIOS prior to installing the sound card. Connected the molex power cable before seating the card in the PCIe slot. I turned it on and started playing music thru a receiver with stereo speakers. Glad that I bought it.
Pros: Low price, 2oz copper (feel the weight), 8 DIMM slots, nice fan on the X79 heatsink, great BIOS, I think that this is a high quality board that is working for me as I expected it to. LGA 2011 offers serious OC potential. ASRock tuning utilities work very well.
Cons: Can't find any.
Overall Review: This is the third ASRock build for me this year and the more that I learn about their products the more I like them. The design and production engineers appear to have this technology in very clear focus. Runs my 32GB 2400MT/s memory kit perfectly and did it with one click of the XMP profile in the BIOS. Come on guys, I have been in this field professionally, as an adult since 1967 and have retired with pension from the electrical workers union and I have no criticism of this motherboard.
Pros: Was a gift from Newegg with a 32GB memory kit for my LGA 2011 build. Thanks Newegg. Using this drive for 29GB of storage.
Cons: None for me, so far.
Overall Review: After opening the plastic packaging with a pair of tin snips, went to the pqi website and it said to format the drive before first use. Plugged it into a USB 3.0 port and formatted it from fat32 to NTFS, then I transferred some files and observed write speeds of 19-22MB/s. The H77M that this drive is installed on is a passive rig and runs 24/7, so if and when it dies, I'll update this review.
Pros: plugged it in, turned it on, timed itself and applied the correct voltage automatically, passed the memory test in windows help and support, runs 24/7 with no bsod, two 8GB sticks
Overall Review: installed this kit on an ASRock H77M board with a i7-3770S, WEI scores 7.9 for processor and memory on Windows 8 OS
Pros: HIGH QUALITY, LOW PRICE, GREAT PERFORMANCE, BIOS IS A PLEASURE TO USE, ASROCK EXTREME TUNING UTILITY, XFAST RAM, INSTALLED WINDOWS 8 PRO EASILY WITH BIOS P1.30
Overall Review: i5-3570K @ 4.8G WITH A +0.275V OFFSET, 16G DDR3 2400 MT/s TIMED AT 10 12 12 31 2T WITH ONE CLICK IN THE BIOS, 240G REVODRIVE3, HD 7970, SCORES 104.57 fps AND 8.00 pts IN CINEBENCH RELEASE 11.5 AND WEI SCORES; PROCESSOR 8.2, MEMORY 8.5, GRAPHICS AND GAMING GRAPHICS 8.2, PRIMARY HARD DISK 8.1
Pros: IT WORKS, VERY CONVENIENT WAY TO TRANSFER ZEROS AND ONES
Overall Review: I PREFER MOUTING WITH FOUR M3 SCREWS RATHER THAN TOOL-LESS MOUNTING IN MY LANCOOL CASE BECAUSE IT IS A MORE SECURE FITMENT.
Pros: IT ALL WORKS, LOW COST
Overall Review: BIOS P1.20 RUNS WINDOWS 8 LIKE IT WAS MADE FOR IT, i7-3770S, 16G DDR3 1600MT/s, ASSEMBLED ALL THE PARTS THAT NEWEGG SOLD TO ME AND PRESSED THE START BUTTON, HAVEN'T HAD ANY PROBLEMS. I BUY BUDGET MOTHERBOARDS BECAUSE THEY WILL BE ECLIPSED BY MORE MODERN TECHNOLOGY BEFORE THE WARRANTY EXPIRES OR THEY WEAR OUT. THIS IS NOT THE FIRST ASRock MOTHERBOARD THAT I HAVE PURCHASED FROM NEWEGG AND ALL HAVE PERFORMED AS ADVERTISED.
Pros: OPERATES WITH A COOLER MASTER T812 CPU COOLER IN PASSIVE MODE, SCORES 7.9 WEI AND 7.08 CINEBENCH WITH WINDOWS 8. TCASE HAS NOT EXCEEDED 50*C AND CORE TEMPS HAVE STAYED BELOW 70*C
Overall Review: THIS IS THE CPU THAT I WANTED WHEN I PURCHASED MY 850MHz PENTIUM III IN THE 1990s. VERY MUCH SATISFIED WITH THIS PURCHASE.
Pros: YOU FIGURE THAT OUT
Overall Review: BOUGHT TWO OF THESE FROM NEWEGG, INSTALLED ONE ON AN ASROCK Z77PRO3 AND THE OTHER ON A BIOSTAR A85W. AFTER DOWNLOADING THE DRIVER FROM OCZ TO A USB DRIVE, INSTALL WINDOWS7 EASILY. THE ONLY DRIVE I HAVE THAT IS FASTER THAN THE REVODRIVE3 ON THE ATTO DISK BENCHMARK IS RAMDISK. THIS COMPUTER STUFF HAS COME A LONG WAY SINCE THE IBM AN/FSQ-7 COMBAT DIRECTION CENTRAL I SAW IN 1962.
Pros: HIGH QUALITY, LOW PRICE, ON BOARD POWER AND RESET SWITCHES, BIOS POST CODE/CPU TEMPERATURE INDICATOR, FOUR DIMM SLOTS, TWO PCIe x16 SLOTS AND ONE USB3.0 HEADER
Overall Review: INSTALLED FOUR 8G STICKS OF 1866 MEMORY, AN OCZ 240G REVODRIVE3 IN THE PCIe x4 SLOT, WITH AN A10 5800K AND LOADED THE OPERATING SYSTEM. THIS BOARD PERFORMS AS ADVERTISED AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT. THE BIOSTAR ENGINEERS SELECTED THE FEATURES THAT I WANTED AND PACKAGED THEM AT A VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE. IF YOU WANT A BUDGET TRINITY BUILD, I THINK THAT THIS BOARD IS A GOOD CHOICE.
Pros: COOLS A 65W LLANO WITHOUT THE FAN, I USE IT FOR A FANLESS PC. VERY WELL DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED. I'LL BUY A SECOND ONE WHEN THE FM2 PRODUCTS BECOME AVAILABLE.
Overall Review: SET UP AN i7-920 ON A LIANLI TEST STAND AND CLOCKED IT TO 4.4G(210x21) AT 1.375V AND HAD TO USE TWO FANS IN PUSH PULL CONFIGURATION TO KEEP IT COOL. THAT SEEMED TO BE ABOUT THE LIMIT FOR THIS COOLER. I DID NOT BUY IT FOR THAT PURPOSE, BOUGHT IT TO COOL THE LLANO WITH NO MOVING PARTS AND IT DOES THAT VERY WELL IN A LANCOOL PC-K59 CASE WITH NO CASE FANS RUNNING. FANLESS PSU, FANLESS VIDEO CARD AND A SSD. NO NOISE AND VERY LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION. PLAYS NEWEGG TV IN 1080P AS WELL AS MY FX-8150 AND i5-2500K.
Pros: MUCH QUIETER THAN A STOCK CPU COOLER, VENTILATES MAINBOARD COMPONENTS NEXT TO CPU, CLEARS GSKILL RIPJAWS MEMORY, RELATIVELY LIGHT WEIGHT. FOR USE WITH A CPU OF LESS THAN 100W TDP THIS SEEMS LIKE A GOOD CHOICE.
Overall Review: USING THIS COOLER ON A LIAN LI TEST STAND THAT IS RUNNING BESIDE ME NOW AND THE NOISE IS ACCEPTABLE. KEEPS AN AMD A6 3500 CLOCKED AT 3G ON A BIOSTAR A75MG MAINBOARD BETWEEN 10*C AND 30*C. YES, THAT IS A VERY LOW TDP CPU. I WILL PUT A 125W TDP CPU ON A FULL ATX MAINBOARD UNDER IT AND SEE IF THAT WILL STAY COOL. I LIKE IT AND HAVE ORDERED A SECOND ONE.
Pros: LOW PRICE, VERY STABLE, OVERCLOCKS WELL, BIOS IS USER FRIENDLY. BIOS NAVIGATION IS THE BEST THAT I HAVE USED.
Overall Review: THIS IS THE THIRD BRAND OF MOTHERBOARD THAT I HAVE PURCHASED FROM NEWEGG WITH THE AMD 9xx CHIPSET. A GIGABYTE 990FX-UD3, A BIOSTAR TA990FXE, A BIOSTAR TA970XE AND THIS MOST RECENT PURCHASE IS THIS ASRock 970 Pro3. I HAVE INSTALLED FX-8150, FX-6100, FX-4100M, PHENOM II X2 560 AND 1100T AND MOVED THE CPUs AROUND TO TEST THEM ON EACH BOARD. ALL COMBINATIONS EASILY OVERCLOCK TO 4.6G AND RUN THE MEMORY AT 1866MHz EXCEPT FOR THE PHENOMS WHICH OVERCLOCK TO 3.7G WITH MEMORY SET TO 1600MHz. THE ASRock BIOS SETS THIS BOARD APART FROM THE OTHERS, THEY ALL PERFORM AS ADVERTISED, BUT WHEN I PURCHASE ANOTHER AMD 9xx CHIPSET, I WILL BUY THE ASRock 990. THESE MOTHERBOARDS ARE A TERRIFIC VALUE. ALSO, WHEN I CALL ASRock ON MY CELL PHONE, I GET TO TALK TO A TECHNICIAN, WHO IS MUCH MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE THAN I AM. DID THAT TWICE BEFORE THIS PURCHASE JUST TO FEEL THEM OUT. A FX-4100 ON THIS BOARD IS SO AFFORDABLE THAT IT IS A NICE GIFT FOR A YOUNG GAMER.
Pros: HIGH QUALITY, LOW PRICE, VERY QUIET, BOTTOM MOUNTED POWER SUPPLY UNIT, NICE PAINT INSIDE AND OUTSIDE, USB3.0 PASSTHRU CABLE AND REAR RUBBER GROMMETS TO EXIT. A NICE CASE THAT IS PRICED RIGHT.
Cons: LEFT SIDE PANEL OVERLAPS 120MM FAN/RADIATOR FASTENERS IN BACK, CAUSING INTERFERENCE WHEN TIGHTENING SIDE PANEL FASTENERS. TRIMMING THE PANEL AN ADDITIONAL 1/2 INCH TOP AND BOTTOM ON THE REAR FLANGE AROUND THE REAR FAN WOULD ALLOW A NON INTERFERENCE FIT.
Overall Review: THE PLASTIC HDD MOUNTS WOULD NOT WORK FOR ME. I TRIED A WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLACK, A SEAGATE BARRACUDA, A HITACHI DESKSTAR AND A COUPLE OF OLD MAXTORS BUT THE TWO PLASTIC PINS WOULD NOT ALIGN WITH THE HOLES IN THE SIDE OF THE WESTERN DIGITAL. THE OTHER DRIVES DID NOT HAVE NON THREADED SIDE HOLES. I WAS NOT ABLE TO USE THE PLASTIC FASTENERS AND ENDED UP USING A SCREW. COULD BE MY STUPIDITY AND I DO WEAR BIFOCAL GLASSES. I WILL BUY THIS CASE AGAIN WHEN I NEED ANOTHER ONE.
Pros: WORKED OUT OF THE BOX WITH FX-4100, NO UPDATES REQUIRED. EXCELLENT HEATSINKS. PRICED RIGHT.
Overall Review: LOW PRICE SCORPIUS PLATFORM WITH FX-4100 AND HD6850. BUS SPEED 210, CPU MULTIPLIER 23, MEMORY FREQUENCY 980MHz, AUTO TIMED AT 9-13-13 tRAS 35 tRC 48 COMMAND RATE 2T @ 1.65V, HT SPEED 2520MHz, NB SPEED 2100MHz. CINEBENCH; CPU 3.81 pts, OpenGL 71.53 fps. CPU COOLED WITH CORSAIR H50 AND ANTEC FORMULA 6 NANO DIAMOND THERMAL PASTE. RUNS COOL 24/7. WESTERN DIGITAL SATA3 HD AND CORSAIR XMS3 MEMORY (2 x 4GB) THIS STUFF JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND MORE AFFORDABLE.
Pros: REALLY WORKS WELL, CORE TEMP 1.0 AND CPUID HARDWARE MONITOR BOTH DISPLAY CORE TEMPERATURES OF LESS THAN 10*C AT IDLE AND MID 30*C AT FULL LOAD, HYPER PI, CINEBENCH CPU, ETC. ON THIS RIG FX-4100 (4.6G, 24/7) THE CURRENT DAILY DRIVER.
Cons: NONE, IF YOU CAN'T SPREAD THE PASTE, HIRE SOMEONE THAT CAN.
Overall Review: THIS RIG: FX-4100(BUS SPEED 233, MULTIPLIER 20, CPU VCORE 1.52V) CORSAIR H50. OTHER RIGS: FX-8150, PHENOM 1100T, PHENOM X2 560, i5-2500K, i7-920, i7-860, i5-670, i3-540, Q6600. ALL OVERCLOCKED AND OVERVOLTED FROM 3.8G TO 5.0G. KEEPS THEM ALL COOL WITH AIR OR LIQUID. SEE LIST OF THERMAL CONDUCTIVITIES AT WIKIPEDIA.
Pros: Works as advertised, booted up the first time and flew like an eagle when XMP was enabled. BCLK increased to 183 MHz, DRAM Frequency increased to 1098 MHz 7-10-10-28-100 clocks, Command Rate 2T
Overall Review: Gigabyte P55A-UD4P, i7 860@4G (183x22) , Corsair H50 cooler, Windows Experience Index after enabling XMP-Processor: 7.7 Memory(RAM): 7.9
