ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Full ATX so there's plenty of room, flawless boot-up and installation of Windows 8 first time. I recommended the board to a friend using the same APU & RAM, and his results were the same...easy as pie.

Cons: The BIOS GUI takes a bit of getting used to when you're accustomed to the "old style" used for lo these many years.

It would be nice if the BIOS recognized RAM faster than 1333 without having to manually tweak speed, voltage and CAS latency. A minor detail, in reality.

Other Thoughts: I used Kingston KHX1600C9D3K2/8G RAM that was listed in the ASRock memory QVL, and the AMD A10-5800K APU (processor)

Western Digital Scorpio Black WD2500BEKT 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Drop-in replacement for other 2.5" SATA drives
-Provides a nice performance boost over 5400 RPM drives or those with smaller caches

Cons: None that I've encountered yet

Other Thoughts: This was just the latest purchase of a Scorpio Black - been using them for about 2 years as my standard replacement for any laptop I service. I haven't found a reason to consider any other 2.5" drive.

5 out of 5 eggs Our First Rice Cooker 01/10/2010

This review is from: ZOJIRUSHI NS-ZCC18 Premium White Neuro Fuzzy 10 cups 1000W Rice Cooker & Warmer

Pros: Easy to use, good capacity for an average family that eats rice daily, consistent results, keeps rice warm and good quality for hours.

Cons: A bit large on the counter compared to other kitchen appliances, instructions are thorough but can be initially confusing there's so much info.

Other Thoughts: My family has never been a big fan of brown rice, regardless of its' health benefits. The Zoji has changed that forever...brown rice has never tasted so good and been so digestible, and is now our primary rice variety.
