Pros: -Favorite part(& big part of why I bought it) is that it can do 2 PCI Express 2.0 x 16 slots at the full x16 speed. I used these to Crossfire my 2 AMD Radeon HD 6770s together & it made one heck of a gaming rig, taking everything I threw at it & performing marvelously.
-SATA ports are SATA III. Mixed with SSDs, this thing REALLY moved!
-Gigabit LAN, I won't buy a board (or system for that matter) without this anymore. Gigabit is a minimum LAN speed.
-TONS of USB ports
-On board USB 3.0 sure is fast
-XFAST USB maxes out the USB. I noticed the biggest difference in the 2.0 ports since the 3.0 ones are already blazingly fast.
-The audio was great IMO. Didn't use it's full potential tho, just stereo.
-LOADS of FAN connectors compared with only 3 on my new board.
-REALLY enjoyed the THX TruStudio software.
Cons: -UEFI - What the **** is that all about? Gimme the old Basic straight forward info the way the BIOS UI is supposed to. Quit trying to pretty things up in stupid ways. Seeing a lot of MoBo manufacturers going this route. -_-
-only 5, instead of 6, SATA ports
-....Not really much else comes to mind. I replaced it for reasons I don't remember now & have been trying to sell it for several months. There may be bad reviews and DOAs & such, but this is one we KNOW works well.
Other Thoughts: Got this back in March 2012 and used it up until November of this past year (2014). If I can't sell it, I'll turn it into another gaming rig so my main one and the new one can be networked together to play some sweet LAN games. I'd LOVE to put another 3 systems together specifically for LAN games on Crysis & Starcraft & stuff. GOLLY that'd be awesome to be able to afford (money AND time). -Sigh-
Great Mobo, Definitely recommend for Crossfiring 2 cards together.
This review is from: Weiita Tactical LED Flashlight, 600LM, CREE LED
Pros: WAS VERY bright tho I had no way to test it to see if it was actually 600 lumens.
5 Modes one can cycle through. Noticed, since my writing my 1st review, that if you leave it off after using, lets say, 'Low' mode for like ~10 seconds, the next time you turn it on, it'll have reset the cycle and you'll have the 'High' setting on at that point.
The Aluminum housing feels great.
I had no problems with the on/off switch or with the battery fitting.
Cons: IT FRICKN' DIED ON MY AS I BEGAN MY WORK SHIFT (Security Guard). It was turned on and, perhaps ~0.18 seconds later, it went out. Well, I THOUGHT it did. Turns out it just went SUPER dim and worthless for what I needed it for.
I understand there MAY be some circuitry in the power cell (18650) that functions to protect the cell somehow. So, either that circuitry died, or that of the LED flashlight did. I'm not sure how quickly the pricing on this kinda stuff changed but I was happy with the purchase back in August 2014. Now, however, I'm surprised I paid over twenty dollars for it! I've found MANY similar lights with at LEAST 3x the light output this one's claimed to give that're going for less than $15, let alone $20!
Other Thoughts: Ten months old and dies on me. I didn't even really USE the thing until I got this job about a month ago so it probly only gave ~50 hours of use if not less. How epically pathetic.
Sure would love a replacement. LOVED it while it lasted. :/
This review is from: Coboc 15 ft. USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Extension Cable (Black)
Pros: Works! Mine goes from my KVM switch(powered by computer's USB ports) to the Logitech unifying adapter that my keyboard & mouse connect to. My KVM switch connects to my main computer & a laptop that resides on my desk as well. No issues with power as other reviewers have had.
Cons: none found so far.
Other Thoughts: Very happy to not need a power booster but perhaps I'm just lucky? -shrugs-
