ASRock H81M-ITX/WIFI LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy to set up. BIOS is easy to work with.

Cons: Had an intermittent freezing issue. I spent the better part of 3 weeks trying to figure out why my new build was intermittently freezing. And it was a hard freeze meaning no response from windows, no cursor movement, nothing. At first I figure it was RAM or even the CPU (I replaced both). Tested the power supply too. But then eventually the motherboard stopped seeing the hard drives during POST. I don't know if this has to do with this particular chipset, or if it is just bad luck with a failure out of the box. Guess I will find out once I get a replacement (if I do - See other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: Don't throw away your boxes until you have things stable consistently for at least a month or two. Newegg won't take anything back without the original box. Trying to work out a replacement from Asrock now to see if I need the box to return to them for a replacement.

Rosewill RHB-320B USB 3.0 4 Ports Mini Hub with Built-in Cable

1 out of 5 eggs Just doesn't work 01/24/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RHB-320B USB 3.0 4 Ports Mini Hub with Built-in Cable

Pros: None

Cons: Didn't work out of the box. It's a powered USB hub. No magic here. Just plug it in to USB and the wall for power, and it should work. Constantly giving me the "Unrecognized USB Device" error when hub plugged in. Then anything plugged into the hub wouldn't work. Fully updated Windows 7 in case there was some update for compatibility reasons. Nope, nothing worked. This is my second Rosewill product I got for myself, and the 2nd one that didn't work out of the box. Never again!

Other Thoughts: Newegg is good as usual. But Rosewill as a company is not one I will trust with any future hardware purchases. I have been IT for over 15 years, so I well know what I should look for in a quality product.

ASUS Laptop G74 Series G74SX-NH71 Intel Core i7 2nd Gen 2670QM (2.20 GHz) 12 GB Memory 500 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 1) Quad Core Processor 2) 12GB RAM out of the box 3) Powerful GPU w/ 3GB Dedicated RAM 4) Very Nice Screen 5) 500GB 7200RPM HDD Pre-installed 6) Really Great AirFlow for a Laptop 7) Backlit Keyboard 8) ASUS Quality - This laptop is such a great deal for the price

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: There have been reviews on forums and on NewEgg alike that complain of a couple issues with this laptop. I have building / selling laptops for 15 years. I always use the following method whenever setting up a new laptop fresh from the box and have never had an issue. 1) Download the newest BIOS and drivers from the manufacturers website. 2) Before using the laptop for the first time, burn the new BIOS. (this is very important for laptops) 3) Delete the existing partitions on the manufacturer supplied hard drive and install your OS of choice fresh with the new drivers you downloaded. -- This procedure is important because it ensures that the laptop hardware will work properly on a BIOS level. And it also eliminates bloatware and outdated / buggy drivers. Most of the time, people are trying to update BIOS through windows and update existing drivers / software on the original OS installation. This is where all the issues stem from.
