This review is from: ASRock H87 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This board is great value for money. I have built numerous systems with it and am very happy with the performance.
Cons: None, but see below
Other Thoughts: Although this board supports all Haswell CPU's some of the later released CPU's (e.g. Core i5 4690) are not supported without a firmware update. The firmware cannot be updated using this CPU, as it will not start up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good specs for the price
Cons: Feels a little slower than it should be.
Other Thoughts: I have some old computers with similar specs and they run a little faster than this on a fresh Windows install, nevertheless I think this is a good value.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung 50" Class 1080p 60Hz Smart LED TV - UN50F5500AFXZA
Pros: Quality image, good selection of apps, decent price.
Cons: • Power cord stick out ¾" from the back. This means that practically speaking the TV is 2¾" and not 2" thick. I could not use this on the ½" low profile mount that i got.
• There is no PC audio mini jack input. The specs on Samsung's website clearly state that there is one. This means that you can't use the TV's speakers if you want to plug in a PC in that has a DVI (or VGA) port. Some older PCs with HDMI ports also don't have sound going through the HDMI.
Other Thoughts: While those cons don't take away from the quality of the TV itself, they are quite important if a. you want to mount this flush against a wall, and b. if you plan on connecting a PC to it.
I'm baffled as to why Samsung would go to the effort of making the TV so slim, yet make the power cord (and also component inputs) stick out so much. It seems pretty stupid to me.
