Pros: I picked this up locally since I wanted a smaller mouse to keep with my laptop, and a local store had it for the same price as Newegg (~$30).
-Non braided cord (had problems with the braided cord on other G-series mice fraying)
Cons: More preferences than anything -
-Small and light. Could be a plus since I'm using it as a laptop mouse, but borderline too small, even though I mostly like smaller mice.
-Never got the trend of "it's a gaming peripheral so it's got to look EXTREME!" The G300S could do without the light blue accents like it's bigger brothers (G500S and G700S)
Other Thoughts: Not a pro or a con, but my last few desktop mice had been laser based, including a G700S. Switching back to a decent (as in not one of those cheap freebie mice included with a PC they hand out at work) is...different.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good board with all the features I needed (USB 3.1, M.2, PCIe 3, etc)
Works with a 6700K, Samsung SM951, and 2x8GB Corsair LPX 3000MHz*
Cons: Issue with setting the RAM to XMP with both sticks installed. The board either wouldn't post or Memtest86+ would start throwing errors. (See other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I would normally wait a little longer before writing a review, but since quite a few of the bad reviews are RAM/XMP issues I hope this helps at least some users, and will edit the rating if anything crops up.
The board actually has TWO (2) RAM voltage settings. The main voltage setting on the UEFI screen where you choose the XMP profile and then a second RAM voltage setting in the voltage submenu. The second voltage setting wasn't changing from 1.2v to 1.35v with the XMP profile, causing the memory to be unstable. After bumping up the voltage a little, the board is now stable with the ram running at 3000MHz and memtest86+ is still clean after ~15 hours. This is obviously some sort of design flaw that will hopefully be fixed in a newer BIOS/UEFI, but is fairly simple to work around
This review is from: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50
Brand name. Branding isn't everything, but hey, doesn't hurt.
Cons: I got this to replace a Samsung external drive I thought I'd lost but later found. The Samsung drive is a bluray drive but is also a 12x DVD/CD burner, so close to this LG drive. The Samsung drive is also bus powered but comes with a split USB cable, and unless burning only one usb plug needs to be used.
I've plugged the samsung drive into an unpowered hub and it would read discs just fine (with nothing else plugged in of course), but the LG drive doesn't on the same hub, it needs to be plugged directly into a powered hub or computer USB port. Also it's much louder.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. It's cheap and seems solid, but quieter and more efficient drives are out there.READ FULL REVIEW
