Pros: Great motherboard, booted up just fine. Easy accessible bios with a ton of overclocking options along with your typical bios options.
The color scheme was also a selling point for me since I am aiming for a red/black theme. Everything on the board in my opinion is well placed. This is the best budget board for anyone who wants a enthusiast board at the cost of a entry level board. I have this paired with a G3258 @ 4.4Ghz easily.. I bought this board with a rebate that AsRock handled very very fast and the rebate came through. Through the process they do offer rebate tracking which tracks where your rebate is currently at. This was a very nice touch from AsRock. Most of my rebates from other brands never came back.
Cons: None really. Red and black may not match all case colors but other than that the board does everything I need it to at a more than affordable price.
Other Thoughts: Not a con, if anything it's the design of a Hyper 212+ Evo.
Fan always sits so close to the ram slots on the board. I have had different brand boards in the past where the ram slots sat where these do and the Hyper 212+ fan always gets in the way, forcing me to use it as a pull configuration. Keep that in mind, unless you are using water cooling for the CPU.
Pros: I've used this every weekend after receiving it. I've used it with my computer, blu ray player, xbox one.... EVERYTHING!
Resolution on the projector may seem like a low resolution but this thing will blow your mind away. The focusing ring is easy to use and ultra smooth. This thing is no bigger than the size a 1TB Western Digital MyBook external hard drive, maybe a bit thicker but that's about it.
Supports bottom screw mount for tripods. You'll need the adapter plate that has the screw to screw into the bottom mount and then simply put it on your tri-pod. This is the best method I've found and it's worked great. This also works great with a chromecast since the usb port is right on top of the hdmi. The projector does have a jacket/pouch like thing that protects it from scratches and if you're a women, it may appear "cute".
Colors are rich and blacks are deep for a projector in this price range. It's 3D capable but I do not have the necessary equipment to test that so I do not have any input for that, sadly. You will get best display quality at night of course, unless you had a theater room. In day light with the blinds closed the colors looked very washed out but that's to be expected. I've been bouncing the image off of just my wall since this is my first projector and do not own a projector screen. I would imagine the picture being a bit more crisp on a screen vs. a white wall that is somewhat textured.
All in all I am very very impressed with it and plan to use it for weekends to come. Everyone that has seen it has complimented on it's size and picture/color quality. It really is amazing and was not something I was expecting from such a small package. Like they say, great things come in small packages..
Cons: One concern..
No lens cover? What was LG thinking when shipping out these units? It's a $599 projector but lacks a lens cover....? I dug around the small box to find documentation, a pretty big power brick but no lens cover. This alone was worth an egg to me simply because the lens should be covered/closed when NOT IN USE! Dust, spills, scratches... all of that can easily ruin a very very costly electronic device.
Other Thoughts: Other than the no lens cover the projector was straight forward to setup. Menus are easy to navigate and configure. Out of the box the colors were really on point alright and I didn't bother to make much adjustment. For first timers, turning up brightness does not help with making the picture more clear or bring the colors more true to life. You'll just wash it out more.
For the money, this is definitely something to look at if you planning to buy a projector. You won't be disappointed!
This review is from: TP-LINK Archer T8E AC1750 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11b PCI Express Up to 1.3Gbps Wireless Data Rates
Pros: As always TP-Link never fails with great packaging on the products they sell.
I quickly threw it into my HTPC that sits by my 47" tv and installed the drivers immediately. Had no issues doing that and right after it showed all the surrounding available networks in my area. A few I saw were some I've never seen before so I am guessing the card is picking up networks further in my neighborhood which is a good sign.
Streamed a few movies on netflix, did a few matches on league of legends and card holds up well. The antennas are a big plus and am positive that without them, the range and connection wouldn't be as strong.
So far it's doing every thing it's advertised to do and saves my one of my usb ports from having a wifi adapter plugged in. Card has a nice little heatsink on that keeps it rather cool. I like that the PCB is black and not green, really just sinks into my motherboards layout. Build quality is rock solid for sure.
PCI is preferred for a wireless connection if you want a more stable and secure connection vs. USB. I've had quite a lot of dropped connections while using a USB adapter, for unknown reasons.
Cons: None really.
Some desktop motherboards now and days come with wireless cards (motherboards have slot that accepts mini wifi cards) but a lot still do not and rely on either usb or pci cards like these to achieve a wireless connection if the computer is not near the router.
Sure it's not as easy as plugging in a USB adapter and connecting to the internet right away but opening up your desktop to slide this in isn't hard either, maybe you can clean the guts while you're at it.
Other Thoughts: Great coverage and connection.
Price is a bit steep vs. other brands that offer similar specs. Anyone looking for a wireless adapter that has a pci-e interface then this is a very good choice. You won't be disappointed.
