MSI H97M Eco LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had this board installed for about a year now - set up as a home theater PC with a Ceton PCI card to watch & record all my channels (8 GB Ram, i3-4130T). The system is stable & energy efficient (perfect for an always on TV) just like the company claims.
It also seems to be faster than my MSI Z87D Gaming PC. I don't know if being an H97 is automatically faster than a Z87.
The 4K picture is also nice as it works with a regular - none 4K TV.
Its also nice to not have to use another computer to show my family videos on the internet. Just pause the TV, and switch to your favorite browser.

Cons: Even though its faster than my gaming PC, I wouldn't recommend it as a gaming PC - unless you try adding a specialized video card.

Other Thoughts: I like the ""Cinema Sound: that my MSI Z87 has. Would be nice to play with that here, but not necessary.

GIGABYTE HD Experience Series GeForce 210 DirectX 10.1 GV-N210SL-1GI 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This video card is a great replacement for my aging Asus (fan type) that was purchased in 2008.

Cons: Sure we could split hairs here - it doesn't have a lot of Cuda Cores or a high Shader Clock - but foget-abat-it.
Not for gamers.

Other Thoughts: It brings new life into an aging computer.

Tek Republic TUH-300 USB 3.0 4 Port Portable Hub

1 out of 5 eggs Find another USB 01/28/2014

This review is from: Tek Republic TUH-300 USB 3.0 4 Port Portable Hub

Pros: Nice to have if it worked.

Cons: I don't believe that this product is defective, however my OS (both Vista and Win 8.1) are not recognizing this USB and are asking for me to install the driver. I went to their website and Tek claims this item is just a 'Plug 'n Play' (ie. no driver needed). I'm not happy with all this fuss

Other Thoughts: It would have been nice if you could at least download a driver from Tek.
