This Boards rocks for APU's

Pros: This is a fantastic APU motherboard. I love all the features and options it has. The Killer200 build in network chip also is a great bonus, plus a creative sound chip. It's sold as a gaming motherboard and maybe it is considered that, but Most APU's won't play modern games at more then low effects nor will this with a A10 6800 only as I'm using. Highly recommend this board as the build quality and features are worth the cost.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: This motherboard with an add in card or two could be a great contender for a small gaming system, but my standards are higher in that area. I was able to play some games like tomb raider and others and they played well and looked good. but games like modern warefare3 and BF3 need a bit more pixel pushing power under high action play for just the APU alone

Most Critical Review

I wouldnt recommend buying these

Pros: they look nice with a Nice price

Cons: These are cheaply made glasses. The lenses are not as dark as they look in photos. The frames are poorly made. Mine took reshaping and even then didn't fit right. They were not bent, just do not made right. The nose supports are not even soldered on the same places

Overall Review: I gave 20.00 for these, if they go on sale for 10.00, then buy a pair. These are something you'd see on a discount display.

Love the price and quality

Pros: I know prices go up and down, but this drive falls right in between and so far it's performed fantastic.

Cons: none so far

Fantastic speakers

Pros: Nice build quality, fantastic sound for the price. I bought these on sale for 179.00. They have since dropped 139.99 when on sale. They have a great mid base sound and very clear highs. Mids are so so. The vented speaker box also help with the sound repsonce

Cons: The con I have is... I feel a mid range speaker is needed. That's just me. I feel when really pushing the speakers you lose some mids.

Perfect... It is not

Pros: I have two of these casesd and yes, the build quality is not great. But for 50.00 dollars is not a bad option. I agree with another review person, the back plate for the mother board doesn't line up, but you know there could be worse things. It's not a 100.00 case, it's 50 bucks. Most everything fits inside it and there's a neat front LCD you can buy to make it look like real HTPC.

Cons: Motherboard may not line up with back plate. I say may because one of mine does and the second one doesn't. I also have one case the power button wire came un-soldered. I looked at another case up close named silver.... and it was even tighter internally and sure didn't look like a 100.00 case.

Fast notebook drive

Pros: I caught this drive on sale for 69.99, now the price has doubled. This drive is fast compared to other laptop hard drives. Until you compare a 5900 rpm drive to this 7200 you can't imagine. Highly recommend if you're stuck on wanting a mechanical laptop drive.

Cons: none so far
