Pros: Brilliant display
Cons: Unmarked and nearly invisible buttons
Other Thoughts: Well, I'm impressed. This display is so brilliant that I had to tone it down.
Everything is so clear compared to my prior 3 year old monitor.
I did however have issues at initial installation. At first, all that showed up on the screen was the wallpaper and task bar and could not do anything with what was there. I tried rebooting several times and produced the same result. So, I reattached my prior monitor and everything worked fine. The next step was to reattached the Acer monitor and everything worked as it was supposed to. I've no idea why it wouldn't work the first few times, but never the less the problem was self resolved.
On the negative, there are 6 unmarked buttons at the lower right. They are also near impossible to see because they are of the same color as the bezel. One needs to read the manual to determine what these buttons do.
Overall, I'm very happy with this monitor. The best part is that, last week when ordered, the price was 200 bucks less than it is when I write this review.
Pros: Does what its supposed to do
Cons: First board had issues
Other Thoughts: This is a zing against both ASRock for customer support and Newegg for the same reason.
The board works ok, or at least the second board I installed.
My issues are that first of all, I installed this board to replace a 5 year old Gigabyte board that had started to have issues with random rebooting. Of course I had to also buy a new CPU and RAM because what I had was no longer compatible with newer mother boards. Well, everything seemed to be OK with the new installation except that sound through the external speakers was barely audible.
I messed around with drivers and settings to no avail. I then attempted to contact ASRock for assistance email only, no phone calls). By the 4th day, I'd had no response, so decided to return the board.
On going through the RMA exercise, I found that Newegg wanted me to pay $20.77 to make a return in order to get an exchange. Finding that unacceptable, I called Newegg and was told that a UPS shipping label would be emailed to me. It arrived on the next day.
I then dropped the board off at UPS. From the time of drop off until I received a replacement took 15 days.
Reinstallation went fine. Sound through my speakers was normal with no alteration in drivers or settings.
In hindsight, I should probably not installed the mother board to begin with because the box was smashed, but the contents looked OK.
I recently had to return a defective product to another supplier. Online (no phone calls), I was issued a cost free mailing label and a replacement was shipped immediately which I received 3 days later. The only provision was that if they hadn't received the return within so many days, I'd be charged for it.
This review is from: AFT PRO-55U USB 2.0 5.25" Bay, CompactFlash/ SDHC/ SDXC/ microSD/ microSDXC/ miniSD/ miniSDHC/ MultiMediaCard/ Memory Stick/ xD-Picture Card. All-in-one Internal Flash Memory Card Reader
Pros: Seems to work with any cards that I've tried
Cons: - Being all black, its very difficult to see the card slot (I painted a white outline around the slots.)
- Relatively high cost
Other Thoughts: Some mechanical impediment developed in the SD slot whereby an SD card could not be inserted fully. The mfr did fix it under warranty.
With the upgrade of some on my electronics, I can now get by with just an SD reader and no longer need any of the other slots.
