SeaSonic M12II 650 SS-650AM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Semi-modular Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works

Cons: Loud fan stays high constantly after about 5-10 minutes of warmup

Other Thoughts: Is this normal for this power supply? Purchased in January 2013, it's been doing this for a long time, maybe always sounds like a jet wind turbine after it warms up. Speed never drops, always puts out warm air...

ASUS P9X79 LE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works good when it works

Cons: Audio died, seems to be a common issue

Other Thoughts: 6 months of 5 days weekly use, audio died, can't get any audio anywhere on the mobo opticals or the front panel anymore. Just happened out of nowhere, no warning, no nothing. USB bypass works (shure digital microphone with a headphone jack gives me a plug for audio, bypasses Realtek etc.).

I don't like having to pay extra (shipping costs) to ship a defective motherboard to ASUS. It's like an equipment failure tax. If it's defective, why do we as consumers have to pay more for the defective item? If companies had to pay all shipping costs for defective products, maybe that would be an incentive for them to design things better and with less chance of failure.

If I could find a different brand for LGA2011 motherboards with consistently good reviews, I would drop ASUS. This is my first board failure and my first ASUS board. Other boards I own are from gigabyte and MSI, both older (one is about 1.5 years old, other about 2.5 years old) and neither of them have failed. However, they're not LGA2011.

Kingston FCR-HS3 USB 3.0 15-in-1 Media Reader
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Worked fine for a while... 12/27/2013

This review is from: Kingston FCR-HS3 USB 3.0 15-in-1 Media Reader

Pros: Good while it lasts, fast, works well...for a while

Cons: Malfunctioned due to failing usb3 internal connection

Other Thoughts: After about 5-6 months, the card reader's USB3.0 port inside the unit has become loose and does not make consistent connection anymore. In order to get it to function, I have to apply downward pressure on the cable while it is attached to the unit. The cable is fine, the unit is having an internal connection fault. I also noticed that the board internally seems to be mobile forward and backward.

If you want yours to last, never unplug the USB cord from the unit itself.
