LG LSM-100 (MCL1ULOGE.CH3MAC) 1200dpi Laser 5 Button  Smart Mouse Scanner
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Absolutely worth the money 10/02/2013

This review is from: LG LSM-100 (MCL1ULOGE.CH3MAC) 1200dpi Laser 5 Button Smart Mouse Scanner

Pros: -Good controls
-The software is pretty intuitive
-The OCR software is pretty good even with distortion from book spines
-Easily portable

Cons: -Mouse cord is too thick and stiff. It gets in the way if you're scanning a book in cramped quarters.
-The scan software randomly starts overwriting the stuff you've already scanned, even if you're passing the scanner over those areas
-Edges can be a bit difficult to work with
-It doesn't move smoothly over some types of paper
-The OCR program randomly messes up some things like "I" while getting complex things right
-The software installs a lot of useless add-ons whenever you update it

Other Thoughts: Bought this on a whim to digitize some old, out of print books in my collection after years of frustration with regular scanners. After some initial learning curve pains, my mind was blown by how easy it was to use and how accurate the OCR is most of the time. Definitely worth the money if you're looking to make your own digital copies of books, pictures, or other documents. The only improvements they can make that I can think of are a larger scan aperture (but keeping the mouse size the same), a thinner cord or a wireless connection, and the ability to post text as HTML.

Cideko AK08 Air Keyboard Conqueror All-in-one Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Good input device for a HTPC
-Fairly comfortable to use
-Gamepad face buttons well made
-Keyboard is easy to clean
-Will work out of the box with just about any Windows PC
-Gyromouse can be turned on and off at will
-Fully compatible with Pinnacle Game Profiler
-Power USB plug same as some digital cameras and can charge from a USB hub
-Good signal range

Cons: -Manual is stuck on a CD and isn't very informative
-Included software is pretty useless
-Right shoulder trigger button is kind of spongy
-Gyromouse button placement and labeling leave a lot to be desired
-Only one shift key, making some symbols a pain to type
-Pressing power button to shut off doesn't always work if controller is facing receiver
-Using buttons for triggers is kind of awkward for people used to Xbox controllers
-Doesn't work without an OS
-Randomly drops connection for short intervals

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a gaming/HTPC rig I was building since I wanted something that was easy to handle. Build quality is okay, although the dongle is somewhat fragile. I had it plugged into the front USB connector of my rig, but someone bumped into it and busted the metal USB connector shield. I MacGuyvered a solution by using a short USB extension cable plus some tape, but that shouldn't have been necessary to begin with.

Gamepad works well, especially if you have a program like Pinnacle to map the buttons, but some games like XCOM:Enemy Unknown will have some weird button swapping due to bad Xinput detection. The only problem is that you can't map controls to the mice buttons, although the F# buttons on the keyboard will still function.

One thing I have to recommend is finding a longer Mini USB cable. The one provided is just too short to be practical.

Overall, I think this is a good product that's useful for plenty of people, but I do wish some other companies tried their hand at producing something like this, just to see if someone could make a higher quality version that got rid of all the kinks.

ASRock H61M/U3S3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Cost
-Form Factor
-Managed to get to POST beep with IB i5-3750K
-Fairly long SATA cables included

Cons: -Incompatible with Ivy Bridge (won't get past POST beep)
-RAM slot a pain to work with
-Some of the other connectors can be a pain to work with
-No fan controller port
-I/O shield is kinda cheap looking

Other Thoughts: Like others say, forget about this mobo if you want to build a brand new Ivy Bridge PC. I got lucky and it can do POST, but that's about it. RMA'ing it and getting a Z77 board that's $50 more before rebate since it's cheaper than buying a Sandy Bridge i3 in the long term.

Only docking it two eggs for not being Ivy Bridge compatible, since as far as I know, it runs Sandy Bridge perfectly fine.
