Works great!

Pros: Does what it needs to do very efficiently. Everything running smoothly.

Cons: None that i can tell.

Overall Review: A huge upgrade from the 2500 Barton overclocked to 3200. I am liking this and the price is excellent at $xx.

Most Critical Review

Junk

Sabrent 7 Slot USB 2.0 Internal Memory Card Reader & Writer (CRW-UINB)
Sabrent 7 Slot USB 2.0 Internal Memory Card Reader & Writer (CRW-UINB)

Pros: The red light works. All the time!

Cons: Nothing else works. Just the one red light. The slots are also so incredibly misaligned that you cannot get a compact flash card into it. Frustrating!

Overall Review: Definitely the worst product I have ever purchased from Newegg. By far! Since the red light works I know it is connected. tried different USB headers, all with the same results. Not worth sending it back as it was so cheap. I wonder what a ball peen hammer will do to it? Hmmmm.

2 Have Died Now

ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: When it worked it seemed to bee a stable and decent enough motherboard.

Cons: My first one died after 2 days. I RMA'd it to Newegg (which cost me a few bucks) and then got a second one after a week and a half without a working computer in my home office. The second one worked for almost two months but just died. It was balky starting up for a day or two and then it suddenly went black and would not do anything.

Overall Review: I had always heard very good reports on ASUS motherboards and was eager to try this one for my new FX-8150. I have previously used Gigabyte motherboards and never had a problem. May have to go back to them. I am looking into doing an RMA with ASUS but do not have a serial number anymore as I no longer have the box. Hopefully I can find a work-around for that.

Pros: Works great right out of the box! Mouse shape is very nice!

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: This is so much better than my previous unit which was made by another company. That one went into the trash can as it was so frustrating. This unit seems solid.

Part of it Kind of Works

Rosewill RKM-800RF 2.4 GHz Cordless Slim Keyboard and Mouse Combo
Rosewill RKM-800RF 2.4 GHz Cordless Slim Keyboard and Mouse Combo

Pros: Looks nice - This is a followup review to "I have no idea if it works!"

Cons: After 4 contacts with Rosewill support they finally sent a USB receiver, which was left out of the package. I do not know why they have phone support for those folks will do nothing but refer you to their e-mail support. Phone would not take a question. Once I finally received the USB receiver the keyboard worked but it does not find the mouse and thus it is non-functional. Keyboard is inconsistent also. At times the keys produce results diffeent from what you would expect.

Overall Review: Ready to gie up. If my initial multiple contacts with Rosewill tech support had not been so lousy I would try with the mouse but why bother? I have many Rosewill products, from graphics cards to cases to wired mice and they all work fine. This has been a disaster and a huge waste of money and time. Thank goodness it was cheap. I guess oen gets what one pays for. Off to a local store to get a new setup today as I really need the wireless with my desk setup.

No Idea If It Works

Rosewill RKM-800RF 2.4 GHz Cordless Slim Keyboard and Mouse Combo
Rosewill RKM-800RF 2.4 GHz Cordless Slim Keyboard and Mouse Combo

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: This item shipped without the USB connector. It fits into a slot under the keyboard for storage and was not there, nor was it in the packaging. Called Customer Service at Rosewill and was told to send an e-mail to their RMA place. That was 2 weeks and 5 days ago and no response yet.

Overall Review: Evidently Rosewill customer service dropped the ball on this. I have written 3 times and never had a response. I have used many of their other products and they were great. This has left me high and dry as my old mouse died and I scrounged up a crummy old mouse to get by. Thus, no recommendation either positive or negative.
