Most Favorable Review

Great Scanner

Canon CanoScan 8800F 2168B002 4800 x 9600dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner
Canon CanoScan 8800F 2168B002 4800 x 9600dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner

Pros: Significant improvement in the speed and quality of scans. Great scanner. Included software is excellent for all my scanning needs. My copied pictures and negatives look as good if not better than the originals.

Cons: Scanning of negatives is somewhat slower, but understandable as DPI's set @ 1200 dpi

Overall Review: If you need to scan occasional documents (usually a page or two). pictures and old negatives or slides. I highly recommend this scanner.

No support

BYTECC ME-740U2F Aluminum 3.5" IDE USB & 1394 External Enclosure
BYTECC ME-740U2F Aluminum 3.5" IDE USB & 1394 External Enclosure

Pros: Small size makes it very portable

Cons: Major chipset problem in fact Bytecc has changed the chipset and left user of this product holding the bag. The firewire disconnects. Support non-existent

Everything just works

ASRock Z690 EXTREME WiFi 6E LGA 1700 Intel Z690 SATA 6Gb/s DDR4 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock Z690 EXTREME WiFi 6E LGA 1700 Intel Z690 SATA 6Gb/s DDR4 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Moved my GSkill Trident DDR4 memory from ASROCK Taichi Z270 to this board. Added i7 12700k CPU and connected power supply. Board booted on first try. Everything just works!! This board has something no other Z690 brand has an extra Gen4 PCIe slot (in addition to the Gen5 PCIe slot) which will be very useful in the future. I like having 2 ethernet ports in case one malfunctions (This recently occured with Intel's updated ethernet driver on my old Taichi and glad I had a backup)

Cons: I've read reviews which criticize ASRock for not having any USB 2. If you want USB 2 you just need to get a USB 2 plug in for the board (sold inexpensively on Newegg or other unmentionable). I find with front connectors for USB 3.2 and the extra USB 3.1 ports on my monitor I have more than enough USB ports. There are only 2 Gen4 PCIe M.2 slots and 1 Gen3 PCIe M.2 this is plenty for my needs, but some may prefer the 4 Gen4 M.2 on other boards. I prefer having the extra PCIe 4 slot vs a 4th M.2,

Overall Review: I highly recommend this board for people that want all the options to maintain internet connections including a spare ethernet and the latest WiFi. I like having the extra slot with PCIe 4th gen. This review for ASRock review rebate program

Works with SBS 2011 and Server 2008R2

StarTech PEXUSB312A2 StarTech.com Dual Port USB 3.1 Card - 2x USB-A - 10Gbps per port - Expansion Card - PCI Express USB Card - PCI-e to USB
StarTech PEXUSB312A2 StarTech.com Dual Port USB 3.1 Card - 2x USB-A - 10Gbps per port - Expansion Card - PCI Express USB Card - PCI-e to USB

Pros: No trouble installing on my office Server with SBS 2011. Was concerned because Newegg website mentions support, but document with card does not mention Server 2008 R2 (does support Server 2012 and Windows 7,8,10). This card is much faster than previous USB 3.0 card even with USB 3.0 devices

Cons: Wish there were 2 more ports.

Overall Review: Did use install executable from website with no problems.

Easy build. Great upgrade.

GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming 6 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming 6 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Absolutely no issues with build. Booted immediately. Works well with Samsung Pro 950 M.2

Cons: Beware of the limitations of all these boards with M.2. If you use the M.2 D slot only 2 of 6 sata ports (1 of 3 serial sata) are available. That being said, the Samsung 950 is blazing fast in that location (runs a double speed PCIex4). In the M.2 H location 4 of 6 sata (2 of 3 serial sata) are available, but it runs at PCIe x4 (not double) and shares the channel with one of the PCIe slots. I elected that latter because I need the ports, but the difference in speed is was only minimal noticeable to me. Know you can RAID the M.2's in this system, but you will only have 2 sata ports available (1 serial sata) 9 month F/U. Started getting usb problems with keyboard drops and other usb connections dropped. Tried to contact gigabyte/us. What a joke. Do these motherboard companies not realize how important it is to support their customers!! Tried to logon to support site but malfunctioning site does not accept logon by password, outlook google. Not a happy camper

Overall Review: Installed Intel i7 6700 G Skill Ripjaws V Series DDR4 3200 32GB (4x8) EVGA 220-G2-0850-XR Power supply

Powerful unit no issues with build. Rebate is a question

EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 220-G2-0850-XR 80+ GOLD 850W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: Plenty of power, multiple options for connection. Quiet

Cons: None yet other than sent rebate 3 weeks ago and system still states not received. I have contacted EVGA as I made copies of rebate form but still no answer. Will update with outcome when resolved

Overall Review: Good product. Rebate efficiency still questionable
