This review is from: LG Internal 24x Super Multi with M-DISC Support SATA Model GH24NSC0B
Pros: Inexpensive, works. All you can ask for.
Cons: Complaints about no software, cables, screws etc.
Whoever stole the burner out of our basic media pc in the sound booth that we use for making video presentations, demos and backing tracks.
No cons with the price or device whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: You purchased a drive, only a drive. It's not a retail box or bundled deal. Stop whining already.
A case came wth plenty of extra mounting hardware whether it was DYI or manufactured.
Just like power cords, old IDE cables, and snakes; left in a dark place undisturbed SATA cables will somehow multiply on their own too. I've never been able to figure out how they do this, but I swear they can reproduce!
Seriously, unless they need to be a pecuilar length, SATA cables are not hard to come by.
Burning software? There are a TON of excellent free programs out there, even for those who aren't using Linux. Check out Sourceforge.
This review is from: ECS A960M-MV(1.0A) AM3+ AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: No driver issues in any Debian based flavor of Linux tried.
Cons: Not all of these boards support core unlocking.
Other Thoughts: "ECS "Unlock ” technology provides stable unlocking of hidden cores" - Not on my board. The option does not exist. It's stated on the website and in the documentation of the MB, but it's simply not there.
I never bought an AMD thinking I was getting something for nothing with the possibility of unlocking cores. For me it's more of science experiment, does it unlock? is it stable? if so cool, if not, nothing lost.
The fact that the manufacturer states "ECS "Unlock ” technology provides stable unlocking of hidden cores" is blatantly false. It's not always a sure thing with this board. After I update the BIOS, maybe the option will be there, maybe not; either way, it's false advertising.
Tried unlocking the CPU I was using with this board, on my OLD Gigabyte, and it did.
ECS: don't make blanket statements about a product when in some cases it a flat out falsehood.
Cons: Will not work. Has to be the worst networking device I have ever seen.
Other Thoughts: Ended up with this as a cast off from someone else who was tired of trying to get it to work.
Reset and configured it for use with my network. Only got "no internet access" message. Could ping it from my router, could also see it from my other devices, and could see devices connected to it, but could never get anything connected to it to access the internet.
Tried the wps button method aka "Just press the button and works just like magic!" and same result - "No Internet access"
Used a Diamond WR300N and in less than 60 seconds was up and running.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
