This review is from: Logitech M570 910-001799 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Trackball
Pros: Good for 3 months at a time
Cons: Random double-clicking, loss of tracking capability, track ball freezes because of sub-quality glides
Other Thoughts: This is the 3rd M570 that has gone bad. Logitech replaced the previous bad Trackballs and now this one is bad again. They promised a return label and another replacement but nothing showed up. They no longer acknowledge my calls or emails. I have given up on them as a company. Buy something else, this is not the Logitech that you remember...their hardware is junk.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Hardware-wise, everything worked. Powers up fine, all SATA ports and PCI slots are functional, no complaints there. The UEFI bios interface is easy to navigate and effective for what it lets you access, i.e. everything but the RAID controller.
Cons: Creating RAID arrays is near-impossible due to shoddy device support in POST that prevents you from accessing the proper menus. The keyboard combination that is supposed to give you access DOES NOT WORK because the board doesn't properly load the keyboard's main keys on either USB or PS/2 without a huge process.
Other Thoughts: The originally intended steps to set up a RAID array are as follows:
Set the SATA controller to RAID in the BIOS.
Press ctrl+i in POST to access the RAID controller menu.
Install RAID driver from the support disk to either a USB key or floppy disk, and install OS.
The actual steps I had to take were:
Set the SATA controller to RAID.
Turn off the USB 2.0 HCI controller.
Plug in both a USB 2.0 and a PS/2 keyboard simultaneously. One or the other individually would not work.
Press ctrl+i during post on the PS/2 keyboard. The USB keyboard still does not work, even though the PS/2 won't work either without the USB plugged in.
Finally gain access to the RAID menus and set up raid array.
Find a functional machine to install the RAID driver to a USB key with, because the mobo support disk only recognizes floppy disks when loaded from boot. USB keys can only be used for the driver when the disk is loaded from Windows.
I never want to experience this again, it was by far the most painful setup I've ever had to perform. Three eggs are for hardware functionality, because I suppose that if you aren't using this for RAID it might be a pretty nifty board.
This review is from: Kellogg’s Pop Tarts, Blueberry, 6/Box
Pros: Cardboard like cake and sweet blueberry slathered in sugary icing goodness
Cons: One can only wonder about one's choices when the woman you marry leaves you because you abandon your holistic, macrobiotic life style after experiencing the carnal pleasures of Blueberry Poptarts.
Other Thoughts: There are times when leaving one's workspace is not an option, that is when it is wise to have a mini-fridge, toaster and extra file cabinet close by; the toaster and fridge need to have their own UPS by the way. Now if I could only find a way to re-route the plumbing, I could purchase one of those cushioned seats and never have to leave my beloved work station.
Do you think we could convince Newegg to start selling toilet accessories?
