ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy setup, flashing the BIOS is simple, looks nice and fits nice, tons of features for the price.

Cons: Doesn't detect memory speed properly, SATA connectors can be very difficult to get to if your case has the P/S at the bottom.

Other Thoughts: I originally rated this mobo with 1 Egg due to the fact that the initial board that was shipped to me came DOA. I have since received the replacement board from Newegg via the RMA process. The replacement board worked flawlessly out of the box. What keeps this board from getting top marks is the fact that it didn't detect my memory correctly (not the first time I've had this issue on an ASUS board, but it is easily overcome) and the fact that the SATA connectors are bunched up at the bottom of the board and tough to get to in my case. Having the connectors a couple of millimeters above the board, oriented the same way, would have solved this problem. Other than that, this board has performed wonderfully and the built in wi-fi is top notch.

ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Tons of features for the price.
Looks pretty cool in my case.

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: I've owned many ASUS boards over the years and built many many systems, but I've never had a board that right out of the box did absolutely nothing. Oh sure, the cute little red LED comes on telling me it has power, but that's as far as she goes. No quick fan spin saying "hey, I'm going to at least make an attempt to work". No beeps saying "wow, life as a mobo is pretty awesome"...nothing. Thanks for letting me RMA, Newegg, hopefully the replacement is better. If so, I'll be happy to adjust my review. Until then, one egg for you.

OCZ Vertex Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The Vertex drive is very fast, easy to install, and even came with the correct partition offset already setup.

Cons: None so far, the drive has been flawless.

Other Thoughts: I installed the 120GB Vertex drive into my HP Pavilion DV6770se. It replaced the standard 250GB SATA drive. Although I did lose half the capacity that I had with the old drive, the Vertex drive's speed more than makes up for the lack of space. My laptop boots in just about 30 seconds with Windows Server 2008 Standard installed. Other than just turning off Indexing and Caching, no other steps were involved. This is probably the single best upgrade I've done to my system.
