3 out of 5 eggs claims of core unlocking misleading 07/31/2014

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.

NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

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.

USB Keyboard Leather Stand Case Cover+Stylus Pen For 10
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It works, case itself is actually nice.

Cons: Poor cable storage, unreliable shipping time.

Other Thoughts: Charged 4 days before order was processed, about 8 days before item was shipped. Took another ten days after that to arrive. 15 days shipping was listed as the max. Based on seller's reviews, 20 days appears to be the average.
