ASUS Republic of Gamers ROG G750 [G750JM-BSI7N24] 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Beautiful screen/video. ASUS ROG-worthy appearance. Great ergonomics. Two drive bays; RAID supported in BIOS.

Cons: No documentation nor recovery disks. Came with wretched Win 8.1, made worse by 5400 RPM drive. Installing an SSD and Win 7 Pro/64 a chore, due to lack of documentation (solution found online).

BIOS has very sparse features.

Drivers hidden in installed HDD.

UPDATE 3/25/2016! Unit dropped 18" onto padded surface and damaged the screen. Sent to ASUS for repair WITHOUT an HDD/SSD. Returned with a HDD installed, and the BIOS so corrupted it would not boot from my SSD, nor would it load the Win7/64 DVD. ASUS reconfigured on return, so it's up.

UPDATE 7/1/2016: Both LAN and WAN stopped working 6/1. Adapters checked OK. Culprit was Win 7 Pro/64 "updating" drivers; restored to prior week, and all is good.

Other Thoughts: Two different Win 7 source DVDs stalled at the same spot; this was finally resolved by a BIOS change, undocumented.

Had to download Win 7 drivers

Rosewill RMS-MA3210 - Silver 17.00

5 out of 5 eggs It's Just a Mount... 04/16/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RMS-MA3210 - Silver 17.00" - 32.00" Tilt & Swivel Wall Mount

Pros: Value
Robust Construction
Ease of Installation

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's just a mount! But what it is, is one that surpasses other, more expensive mounts, in its rugged construction, features, and ease of installation (obviously, not the first mount I've installed).

This replaced another mount that couldn't accommodate the new TV; It was done in less than 15 minutes, and without any issues.

WD 500GB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBPGC5000ATT-NESN Titanium
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy connection
Decent backup software

Cons: Kludgy Software

Other Thoughts: Included software is kludgy; this 500GB unit was bought as a present (I have the similar 1TB item, which is what this review is base on).

It's relatively fast (considering the power consumption constraints of single-connector USB) and virtually silent.

The included software allows only one partition to back up at a time, and forget imaging/cloning. There are, however, decent freeware apps that bridge the gap.

The individual I gifted this drive finally backed up his laptops with the included software - and finally his desktop without enduring burning several DVDs.

All-in-all this is an excellent drive, despite the shortcomings of the software (my opinion is that true backup software should include cloning/imaging features).
