Cons: MARKETED BY NEWEGG AS A "STANDARD" KEYBOARD, SHAME ON NEWEGG!! KEYS ON KEYBOARD ARE NOT STANDARD US LAYOUT!! I PURCHASED 3 NOT REALIZING WHAT I WAS GETTING.
SHOULD NOT BE DESCRIBED AS STANDARD.
Overall Review: LOOK CLOSELY. KEYS ARE NOT STANDARD US LAYOUT!!
Pros: Worked great for as long as it lasted.
Cons: After just about a year it slowly quit keeping up with the cold. It still puts out just a little heat but not enough to keep a 12 by 16 room warm even on the highest setting.
Overall Review: First one I got was DOA. Second worked great for about a year. Then it just slowly quit putting out heat.
Pros: Pretty Board
Cons: I did a build with this board, in Feb. 2009, for myself LUCKILY! Every time the machine boots it takes at least 5 minutes and several restarts. I've tried 4 different types of memory, 2 were on the MB support list. Constant BSODs on startup. Doesn't like ANY memory!!
Overall Review: I've tried using a single memory slot, slots 1 & 3, slots 2 &4, nothing works with this beast! Even tries disabling all onboard hardware, no help. Once it finally boots it seems to work OK, sure don't dare to try to overclock. Way to unstable to depend on. Luckily it was a replacement for my main computer and not for a customer, I'd have been shot by now!
Core 2 Duo E8500
GeForce 9500 1GB
4 Gb DDR2 1066
750 GB SATA HD
Windows XP Pro
Pros: One out of Two ain't bad?
Cons: I used one of these to setup a wireless network about 6 months ago, it works flawless! So I purchased another for another network, mistake. It would work for 2 minutes and then all of the pretty lights would light up and it would lock up. Unplug it and wait a few minutes and it does the same thing! Spent almost 2 hours looking for firmware or anything and NOTHING. Boxing it up and returning!
Cons: ITEM WORKED FOR A WEEK! NOW AS SOON AS I TURN IT ON IT LOCKS UP. IF I HOOK IT TO MY COMPUTER, IT LOCKS UP MY COMPUTER. CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITH IT!
Overall Review: BUYER BEWARE! JUNK!
Cons: I purchased 5 of these drives for a SQL Server. 3 in Raid 5 and 2 in Raid 1. I have had 2 of the 5 drives fail within the first month!! Parts are warrantied, but time involved to switch out drives is my expense. Will be buying Western Digital or other brand from now on!!
Overall Review: If you don't mind dealing with failed drives constantly buy them. Other wise buy another brand!!
Pros: VERY CHEAP PRICE, LOTS OF USB PORTS, 4 DDR MEMORY SLOTS
Cons: THIS IS THE 3RD BUILD WITH AN ASROCK BOARD, THE 1ST WAS A P4V88 BOARD, SOCKET 478. THE MACHINE RAN ABOUT 3 MONTHS AND DIED. ASROCK WOULD DO NOTHING, NEWEGG REPLACED IT WITH THE EXACT SAME BOARD, MOSTLY BECAUSE I DO ALOT OF BUSINESS WITH THEM. THIS HAS BEEN RUNNING FINE FOR 1.5 YEARS. SECOND ONE, ALSO SOCKET 478, RUNS WITHOUT A HITCH FOR 1 YEAR NOW. BUILT THIS UNIT, ONBOARD LAN DIED IN LESS THAN HALF AN HOUR. PUT AN XFX 6200 VIDEO CARD IN IT AND WON'T RECOGNIZE IT, DOESN'T EVEN SHOW A DISPLAY ADAPTER IN DEVICE MANAGER.
Overall Review: NOT THE GREATEST QUALITY BOARD ON THE MARKET. DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR YOU CAN FIND BETTER VALUE.
Pros: Nice monitor, WHEN it worked!!
Cons: Monitor died after about 10 months! Have been trying 3 months to get in touch with ADVUEU for RMA. Company won't answer emails or return phone calls!! BEWARE!!! 3 year warranty worthless if you can't get ahold of the company!!
