Pros: Perfect Price
Incredible build quality for the price
Screen is great
Cons: Looks so much like a MacBook, potential theft increase.
Keyboard has very little travel. Wouldn't recommend for anyone who codes or types a lot.
Ports. HDMI, USB C, 2 USB, headphone jack. a bit skimpy but accessories can alwasys be purchased for cheap.
Overall Review: Good function keys, nice to be able to turn off internet connection if needed fast
Didn't have much hope that the laptop would be good. Very impressed, was not expecting the quality for the price. If you are upgrading from an older machine and worried about the 8gb of ram, the higher clock speeds do help with most tasks comapred to an older ddr3 ram setup.
Pros: Short and does its job.
Cons: Really short fan connector, barely reached the header. Shroud covering fins makes it hard to clean.
Overall Review: Lengthen the wire and get rid of the shroud for easier cleaning.
Pros: Pushes more air than a standing fan, only need one of these in a system, very nice looking, Very good construction.
Cons: Laughably loud. the whining noise of the fan is way too loud. Thank goodness I have a fan controller. With fan turned up, I have to wear in ear headphones or the sound will drive me nuts.
Overall Review: Cools system down considerably, with cases with only one front fan holder its is perfect. Just know that the noise is very loud. Would recommend though, its just that good.
Pros: Smooth, easy to assemble, steel solid construction, completely adjustable, sturdy, great price.
Cons: Only one issue is the sliding clamp that attaches to the vertical bar, needs a rubber pad instead of a plastic one. Was sliding, had to insert electrical tape inside the clamp to create friction.
Overall Review: Minor issue that company should fix that would make this product a must buy for anyone.
Pros: Simple, works, great performance.
Cons: Loud fan.
Overall Review: Works great, runs everything I can throw at it with at least high settings. Not a limiting factor in a cheap build. Probably will buy another to run in Crossfire.
Pros: Simple, cheap, and works. Mostly reliable.
Cons: Is temperamental, not the best BIOS, terrible manual, cheap.
Overall Review: Bought this board as my first build on july of 2014, needed something cheap to meet budget. Was finicky to get everything set up to work right. Had a major failure with the networking, required a complete system reinstall to fix. Not a board to OC or take chances with, I would recommend going with a more expensive board. This product is definitely just a bad model from ASUS. Works fine when it does work, have tested all other components and it seems to just be a not-so capable item. If youre building a cheap entertainment pc, this would work fine. (AMD FX6300, MSI R7 265, ASUS LAN card, crucial sport RAM, Seagate Baracuda HDD.)
