Pros: Works...for the most part
Cons: 3.0 header faulty?
Other Thoughts: This is what I know. The upfront 3.0 ports worked before the old MB died.
With this MB, there is nothing indicated being plugged in to the 3.0 header.
Being able to see what specific components are connected to the MB in the BIOS using an interactive map of the motherboard is neat. Other than that, it's a MB and it is functional...for the most part.
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.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
