I don't like to give 5 stars to anything but I think this board deserves it.9/22/2020 4:28:14 PM

Pros: - Fast booter (with an i-9 10900KF) - I don't use the fast boot options and still WOW - It is just beautiful - high quality - heavy. -- Color scheme (black and gunmetal looks great) -- just the right amount of RGB not in your face. - Back plate is fantastic and add great rigidly - You can RAID 3 nvme drives - High degree of mem compatibility - Side mounting system is amazing and really cleans up cable management - VRM cooling solution is top notch ! Keeps VRM in low 40s even under load ( as long as case has decent ventilation I suspect) - Rock solid XMP OC with i9-10900KF at 4.9 out the box with 5.3 turbo nice and cool even with an air cooler. - Great BIOS with 10 million options but you need to be an expert to take advantage of them.

Cons: - I wish the front panel audio was also mounted where the other external connectors are. -- prob too hard to make these traces. - Documentation can be vague - Poor info on if this will support PCIe 4 if a new intel chip for LGA 1200 comes out. Gigabyte prob not sure it it will but they did put the circuitry for one nvme and the PCIe16_1 slot.

Overall Review: This is an amazing and very stable mobo. I have had amazing luck and ease OCing my 10900KF to all core 5.4. I am sure I can get 5.5 once I figure out some of the settings and spend some time with nob turning. I did not want to ding it for cost I think you get what you pay for here. Great job Gigabyte I have become convert coming from Asus.

Sleek and Black9/22/2020 11:40:58 AM

Pros: - Quality - esthetically pleasing - Stable XMP

Cons: - RGB can only be controlled by iCue. - at least you only need to run it once. - You cannot change the intensity of the RGB.

Overall Review: Very nice mem kit that "just" works with AMD and Intel. My biggest complaint is RGB and this kit would be greatly improved if it supported the major mobo RGB eco systems like the newer modules from other manufactures do.

Great wireless mechanical keyboard with some significant caviats.4/21/2020 7:34:46 AM

Pros: The clickity version is Great. Best low profile keyboard I have felt. Fantastic tacktile response. Very commfortble typing experiece. Great battery life. Supports lightspeed and Bluetooth via a button (nice) Well built Brushed alluminum body... Looks sweet.

Cons: Software - Blows. Took off an egg because you dont really need it UNLESS you want set up the lighting or use any of the features (whitch is all of it!!!!!). Also it will not detect the keyboard if in bluetooth mode (Just lame) Lightspeed - Took off an egg becuase I feel advertisement for this product leaves the topic of sharing lightspeed dongles nebulous. I assumed that if you have one lightspeed dongle it would work with another lightspeed compatable logitec device say the G603 mouse. It does NOT!!!!! I think logitec needs to be very clear on this. What makes it worse was I hads to disciver this after I tried and after trolling around forum. Tech support was additioally unhelpful regarding this. Price: Very expesive Allumuinum body cut me... Ouch... I guess ya pay for fashion.

Overall Review: If you want a good wireless keyboard with good bat life and mechanical feel and dont have wallet restrictions then I would recommend this KB. Beware... Lightspeed is NOT universal wireless dongle.

Great Router. AI Mesh with a tri-band is amazing.1/28/2019 1:24:21 PM

Pros: Great features: Trend Micro Integration is one of the best Parental Control implementations I have found in a router. Three fast wireless 2.5, 5 & 5. Works well with ASUS Bridging solutions

Cons: This is my second router. The first one I got rebooted ever 30 minutes or so. I had to return it to NewEgg. Easy enough process. The new one had the same problem. I am suspecting this is a firmware issue. <UPDATE After 2 years> Note: I am updating this after owning the router for a few years. All Firmware issues hav been fixed and the software for the router is FANTASTIC now. Best router I ever owned.

Overall Review: I am very disappointed. I had the old 5300 for a while but I drooped it so I decided to replace it with this. I have another Asus router the has the same broadcom chip and the bridge connection runs at 1700. Brilliant. But two routers with the same problem??? If I don't hear back from Asus on tech support I will be returning this. I do not recommend buying this until it has aged. Only reason it has 2 eggs is because I have had such luck with Asus routers in the past.

Cool and purdy1/28/2019 12:34:00 PM

Pros: - Keeps the GPU cool - RGB looks great and works with ASUS boards

Cons: - None

Overall Review: - EK products are top notch! I am glad you can purchase these from NewEgg. I hope NewEgg and EK can work to sell more of the EK product line in this way. When buying from NewEgg (in the US) shipping is cheaper and faster than a direct EK order.

Could be HOT but it was WARM1/28/2019 12:19:54 PM

Pros: - Nice display - HAS A PWM (only one but still) - Supporting 10 fans and 4 pumps

Cons: - Too small for a 5 1/4 bay and hard to mount and keep locked in... (Drives me nuts but pros keep me using it) - Looses setting sometime - Pain in the *** to set the limits and then losses them sometimes.

Overall Review: - Display looks great but not very sensitive. - 10 fans -- 4 pumps using PWM control on chan 1 (pumps pwr comes from molex PWM is only for speed control) -- 3 on channel 2 -- 3 on channel 3 -- 4 on channel 4 -- three on channel

Fantastic1/28/2019 12:05:39 PM

Pros: - Light weight - Very comfortable - Great Bat Life - Works with more than one phone or device - Amazing sound!!!! - Fantastic noise reduction - Folds for more comfy neck wearing while while off.

Cons: - The touch control on the ear is SUPER (too easy) sensitive. If you are laying in bed some time it will pause or forward the play. (Took off one star for this)

Overall Review: - Optional software runs on both iPhone and Android. Not bad bot seems to be lacking some capabilities - - Setting noise reduction - this can only be done via a switch on the ear. ( No big deal. ) - - integration with streaming sources - this seems like it could be a cool feature BUT does not work with Google Play. (No big deal)

Best router I ever had... And I have had a lot!1/5/2016 6:26:48 AM

Pros: - Fast ( UI is snappy, changes do not always require reboots, connection speeds are healthy ) - Stable ( runs and runs and runs and now weird disconnects ) - Good tech support ( via email takes a few days but resolved a minor issue that was really just confusion about the settings in the router... There are a lot of them ) - Can handle a lot of devices without blinking - setup is simple will detect network configurations and get you going fast but still has a TON of powerfull features. !!!!!!! Most important !!!!!!! ( for me and any parent who has networking skill ) The Parental controls in this router are better than ANY i have seen. I have tried them all. I have turned over routers because what they offer just does not cut it. This has finally given me an all in one solution that is usable, solid, and work!. Can set limits on a machine by machine basis, can filter certain content "Adult" twitch, etc. Perfect for control of your teen inet junky and usfull for setting limits!!!!

Cons: - Asus websight can be slow some times ( I was an early adoptor and first few weeks support section was not even there ) Parental Control - room for improvment: 1. There is no way to set up a default policy for all computers. e.g. all computers are blocked from Adult content. You need to do this on a machine by machine basis. 2. Limit to 16 clients for parental control settings and time schedule. Thus will only work for a family 3. I like all the extra access to power user settins but there is very little documentation on what they do. Requires a ton of web browsing and i still have not figures them all out.

Overall Review: - have not tested MIMO yet. At the time of this review alpha firmware was just release and I do not have access to a client yet. - Really want to test the Pripritary radio for the extra bandwidth. Don't by the hype on the extra speed as you need a compatable radio. However given this routers firmate and ASUSWRT is so !!!!!! good I will be getting a bridge to suite and maybe even a wireless MIMO pci slot for a computer from ASUS in the future.

Great sound and very comfortable.9/15/2015 11:41:46 AM

Pros: Sound great and I still wear them for a long gaming session. Sounds way better than my Razer Tiamat and I do not miss the 7.1 at all. I guess it is too hard to fit a head set with good drivers that support true 7.1 or even 5.1 for that matter.

Cons: You need a good driver for these. 150 Ohm

Overall Review: My sound card on the ASUS Rampage V Extreme supports this by default no problem It detects the power setting NP and sound great.

Good looks great control9/15/2015 11:37:17 AM

Pros: Look great. Comes with all you need to install. PWM control allows for low noise and better air flow when you need it.

Cons: Comes with little rubber screws. I really like these but they are hard to install and subject to breaking.

Overall Review: I wish I could find these in 140 mm format.

Love it.4/15/2015 1:34:07 PM

Pros: This is a GREAT keyboard. I cannot play games without it now. Using one of these allows me to avoid stretching and reaching. Very comfortable. The thumb stick blows away the G13 and the older Razer gamepad.

Cons: There is no place to get / share profiles. You need to build one each time. NOt a big deal but I like what Logitec does with the G13. There are pre-configured profiles for games that some with the software. Wish Razer would do that to. Then you can customize or use out of the box.

Overall Review: I would recommend the Stealth version. It feels much faster than the non-stealth and is a bit less noisy.

Fast but I would wait for next Gen4/15/2015 1:20:26 PM

Pros: This is a fast drive. Works with: 1 x ASUS RAMPAGE V EXTREME LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Cons: 2 fast SSD in RAID 0 will outperfom this drive. I have 2 x SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) in RAID 0 and it blows this away. Cost is high considering 2 SDD in RAID zero will outperform. Requires USB Stick install using UFE BIOS.

Overall Review: Wait till Gen 4 then these should rock. Took one Star off because it did not outperform my RAID 0 Took 1 star for price.

Good sound and true 7.112/28/2014 10:54:28 AM

Pros: Support 7.1 native in the headset. Has a great controller to mute, adjust volume for all channels and enable pass through for 7.1 speaker systems This has held up really well I have used it heavily for 1 year.

Cons: Big one: side channel is VERY VERY VERY soft.I took off 2 eggs for this I feel this is a big deal. I RMA'd this out for the same reason it was tested and returned. I am not sure if this is just unhappy with my MoBo 7.1 card or not. I am running it on a Asus Extreme IV. Retractable mike seems flimsy but I have had no problems with it. After long play sessions it puts pressure on my ears causing me to adjust often. (minus 1 egg)

Decent if you have a lot of wireless devices10/12/2014 10:37:06 AM

Pros: - 3 radios - 1300 Mbs for 2 5Ghz and 600 for 3.5 Ghz ( remember this gets shared) - Easy setup. - Integration with OpenDNS - Decent parental controls

Cons: - Software still seems adolescent. I had to use the Beta to get this to be stable with my MSI laptop and there has not been an update for a few months.

Don't buy1/6/2014 1:27:05 PM

Pros: 7-1 sound on a PCI-E card

Cons: Drivers are old and difficult to configure. Not ever sure if this is being maintained? I had to stop using it because it would crash skype. There was some problem with the mike input I could not resolve. Worked great n games but I needed to be able to talk to online players.

1 week and Dead.3/28/2012 8:33:48 AM

Pros: Nice design. Great warranty.

Cons: Pump failed after 1 week. Durring the week it did not seem to lower temps well during OC. This may just be due to getting a dud. I had to RMA the unit and wait for a replacement to use my new setup. Still waiting.

Overall Review: Failed after one week. Did I mention the pump failed after one week?

Nice look, Real quiet - 2 out of 4 worked3/28/2012 8:30:38 AM

Pros: Real quiet and look great in hot orange.

Cons: Bought 4 and 2 were not spinning up to max. This gave me a ton of problems with my push / pull config on the H100 . Finally had to diagnose by attaching them to the MoBo and then I notices that one was spinning at 600 RPM the other at 800 and never changed when asked to. Hard to tell the direction of the flow there are not arrows to indicate

Overall Review: I ended up ordering 2 more to replace. Did not bother with the return yet. Takes too long. Over all these seem like a good buy maybe I just had bad luck

Happy, for a a picky NAS buyer.7/26/2011 12:36:50 PM

Pros: Easy to set up drives... Web interface is sophisticated and clean. Very fast; I can max out my GigE easy on large files... much faster than a USB and anything connected directly to the switch it dangles off of performs great!

Cons: 1. Does not default to DHCP - This will require you to adjust your local network settings to configure. 2. Did not come with the latest firmware... You need the latest to get desired performance. 3. Does not seem to go to sleep. ( The Wake On Lan and HD spin down features don't seem to work? ) There is no way for me to tell ( since I do not measure the power draw and the LEDs are always on. )

Overall Review: Used 4 Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ; No problems. No ding on the NAS but Win7 does not normally index network drives. If you want to add a folder to your libraries Win7 requires an index. Work around is to add via MediaPlayer.
