ASUS P9D-M Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333

5 out of 5 eggs Full featured µATX motherboard 01/29/2014

This review is from: ASUS P9D-M Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333

Pros: Built two PCs with these, Xeon Haswell E3-1220s, Kingston 4GB ECC x2 DDR3-1600, Samsung EVO 840 120GB SSD+WD 2TB Green HD, and ASUS R9-270. Both work like dreams and are loved by all of my family members who use them. Everything worked the first time for drivers & installing Windows 7.

Cons: Sleep / hibernate support is minimal, but with ~15 second boot times, it is a non-issue for me.

Other Thoughts: The power connector is in a tight spot and right in front of the fan for my case, and would usually be right in the powersupply fan intake space, that said, I could see that when I got the board and made sure I could route the cables behind the motherboard when I picked my case. I did not use the provided driver disks, I went to ASUS and downloaded them, and I flashed the bios before anything else, as Haswell is still fairly new.

Pros: These long cables are great if you have a big case you need to get connected up. And if you have a smaller case there are ways to manage cables and hide them in out of the way places.

Cons: Non to date.

Other Thoughts: Did I mention these are long? When you are planning your build, get the case you are expecting to use, and a yard of string, to see how much extra length you are buying.

Sony Xperia ZR C5502 8GB, 2 GB RAM White 8GB Unlocked Water-Proof Cell Phone 4.55

Pros: Fast, bright, waterproof. I got a charging station for it and I don't even need to unseal the phone to charge it. Replacable battery, multiple color options. I really like this phone. Also, the default apps on the phone can be disabled, extending battery life.

Cons: Battery life when in use is not as long as desired. In direct sunlight, screen can reflect a lot of glare.

Other Thoughts: I got this phone for my wife, who had a 'real' smart phone for about 2 days when it got a bath. Our wireless provider replaced it—we had replacement insurance—with a total piece of junk 'smart' phone that could barely run with the bloat-ware preinstalled, and couldn't install any new apps without being rooted to remove the bloat ware. Buy from New-Egg to get what you want, not what providers will 'help' you to.
