Pros: I've always been a fan of Kingston whether it be for ram or ssd's. Like intel, none of my Kingston parts have ever failed me. This might not be the fastest ssd, I bought it because there are no moving parts like a platter hard disk. So efficiency on my PC is at its prime. Very low power consumption. The rasta man engraving on the case is a nice touch.
Cons: none whatsoever
Overall Review: I would buy it again and I highly recommend it
Pros: I have 34 triple-A game titles in my Steam acct, 80% of the games were released within the last two years. There is not a single game that this card couldn't play at ultra settings in 4K resolution. I am blown away how great this card is, I love it! This card is also good for video editing and 3D tasks. I use it for Maya and Photoshop too.
I rate the build quality Five Stars - SEXY AF with a plain Jane cnc machined aluminum shield.
it is NOT a HOT or LOUD running card - nothing close to a GTX480 "egg fryer" in terms of heat and noise. This is my first AsRock pc part and first AMD GPU, but it won't be my last.
Cons: None, zero, zilch, nada
Overall Review: Money well spent.
Pros: Best bang for the buck
Runs waaay cooler than any 65W intel CPU I've own in the past and it is faster by leaps and bounds.
Cons: it's not free. lol
Overall Review: Ram XMP profile on the X570 crosshair hero VIII motherboard allowed me to hit 4.3Ghz in one simple click and keep it there using the included stock AMD CPU cooler.
Pros: Intel SSD's have a proven history of reliability
1.9GB/sec actual transfer rate from one intel 660p to the other and back again. Test was done with the X570 Asus Crosshair Hero VIII motherboard and Ryzen 7 3700x CPU.
Overall Review: that's all I have to say
Pros: automated search for the latest board drivers and BIOS updates
top quality motherboard
Cons: none - I give this bad boy 5 Stars
Overall Review: This is by far the simplest motherboard I've had the pleasure of working with. Everything was automated upon windows 10 clean install. I did not have to go to asus website to download (drivers, bios updates) individually. ASUS' "Armory Crate" did all the work while I stood by watching and admiring its integration. I was blown away. Totally impressed!
Great support for 64GB of ram. Use the QLV listing from the manufacturer before you decide to buy your ram, every motherboard manufacturer has one. Make sure your ram is included in the list.
Pros: 7th gen 3.9ghz intel cpu
12 GB ram
Cons: My only gripe is that it didn't come with a power cord for the tower - I went to buy one locally. While this is a small inconvenience, how did they expect us to use the computer...lol I took off one star for this reason.
Overall Review: I really like the computer though. :)
Pros: on board standard SATA connection
Cons: I can't use an SSD inside the chassis even though INTEL has supplied the internal headers for one on the motherboard. This is because the case isn't big enough to support one.
Come to find out, INTEL later released a bigger chassis with the SAME MOTHERBOARD.
All I can say is, everyone who bought this should get the new, UPDATED CHASSIS for FREE.
Overall Review: I will change my rating when INTEL ships US the newer Blank Chassis. Until then, it gets one star. Everyone else should follow suit.
Pros: Outstanding wifi & LAN throughput - Great SOLID wifi connection all the time, any where.
Cons: - none whatsoever -
Overall Review: This is an excellent router. I would definitely buy it again. Highly recommend!
Pros: I previously rated this item with one star. After finding out what went wrong, I take that back and give this device a Four-Star "Egg" rating today. :)
Having updated my motherboard's BIOS (an ASUS P8Z77-I), the HT-UE01 USB3 Hub and LAN adapter worked exceptionally well with "USB3" connectivity.
I bench tested two different external hard drives last night with the HooToo HT-UE01 -
*the first HDD, an 3TB HDD had a whopping sustained transfer rate of 160MB/s read and write
*the second hard drive however, was limited by the internal buffer, but even still, I was able to achieve a sustained 110MB/s transfer rate using the same 8Gig file
Now with the LAN Connectivity -
Transfer rate between two pc's using the Gigabit Ethernet LAN port was in excess of 760Mbit/s as data passed through my Netgear, Nighthawk AC1900 router. So essentially, there was nothing wrong with this adapter. I highly recommend it.
Cons: It doesn't have any LED lights on the Network Port to tell you if the LAN is operational
Overall Review: If you're having trouble getting this device to work properly with an ASUS P8Z77-I motherboard, I encourage you to update the BIOS to the latest release for 'enhanced' USB 3.0 connectivity.
Pros: Not much to say other than it works.
Cons: No complaints here.
Overall Review: Got it bundled for FREE.
