This review is from: ASUS Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I like ASUS AI Suite, first time I've ever liked a mainboard software. UEFI-BIOS nice. Board has a lot of features that aren't obvious when shopping, read up on it, other enthusiast boards are loud about features, this board is nicely understated. Worked right out of box paired with i5 Devils Canyon. CMOS BIOS Chip is installed with a socket so you can replace the chip, a very nice feature.
Cons: Documentation on readout codes is poor. Manual could be clearer and more explicit. Deluxe version supports 2 SATA Express and 2 Intel NICs and more drives.
Other Thoughts: This is my first Intel board in a decade and I'm pleased with it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MEElectronics Gunmetal M9PG2-GM 3.5mm Connector Canal Headphone/Headset
Pros: Sound is relatively balanced, bass is punchy with the right fitting, Treble is just there, it isn't overwhelming. Fit with biflang tips is very good, one of the best I've tried. Cable is very sturdy and cable microphonics is minimal. Very attractive. Has in line universal volume control, mic, and control button, so will work with iPhone or other phones too. Cans angled nicely. Very sturdy, flat cable (I cannot emphasize how important a good cable is enough). Bass is not boomy, but rather nicely punchy.
Cons: upper mids, maybe some highs in some recordings borderline harsh/tinny. Cans protrude from ears a bit. In line volume control seems cheap and I expect it will fail before the cans or the cable does. Upper treble seems recessed a little, not quite sparkly enough compared to more expensive phones. Left and Right markings, as is the case on too many IEMs, is way too hard to read, but since there is an inline mic/control, you can go by that to know which ear is which.
Other Thoughts: These phones work well in recordings that aren't too complex, too busy. Bass is very pleasing and lower mids have nice fidelity. One again, the flat cable is a very nice cable and my feeling is the cable will last longer than other IEMs I've owned that developed breaks in them (after gentle use). with biflanges isolation is pretty darned good. Fit with biflanges is next to perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000
Pros: Truly ergonomic, decent key feel considering price. Comfy wrist rests,
Cons: The ASDF keys' lettering is already rubbing off after a year of moderate use. Hope MS warrants the product without me having to go to the expense and hassle of shipping back.READ FULL REVIEW
