Pros: - Installation was uneventful. Everything fit and arrangement is excellent. Plenty of room for CPU heatsink/fan.
- Came with latest available BIOS.
- Decent number of SATA and USB ports. Full array of back panel video ports for use with onboard video.
- Has nifty red LEDs at each corner of the board if you're into a little visual effect.
Cons: - There was one item I couldn't find in BIOS, and that's "POWER ON by KEYBOARD". This is a feature I generally use. This review is my initial impressions, so maybe I missed it on one of the setup screens (?). Probably not worth docking an egg either way.
- Board has LEDs for visual appeal, which I don't care about. However I was surprised that there was no case sticker.
- As you can see these are nitpicks and very minor which speaks to my overall satisfaction with this board.
Other Thoughts: As I mentioned above, this review is more of an initial impression (less than a week ownership). But for a basic motherboard at a very low price, it allowed me to build a nice little low power system (Skylake 6100T) with pretty good performance. It has the H110 chipset, so there are some compromises as such, but that should be known going in.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Vex 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF64GVEX3USB
Pros: Very small size
Inexpensive (especially with promo pricing)
Cons: Very small size
Only 2-year warranty (compared to much longer for other Patriot drives)
Other Thoughts: This drive is tiny. Very similar in size to your thumbnail. That feature can be a pro or con. If you want to use it as a portable drive, it can be difficult to install or remove from a USB port (it would also be easy to lose). I bought this to put in my TP-Link router to use for multimedia storage and streaming. I won't need to insert or remove it frequently, the small size is unobtrusive and not prone to damage. While it can't compare to Sandisk Extreme drives, it is satisfactory (got 127/24 read/write on USB 3 port using CrystalDiskMark).
I just received this drive so I can't comment on it's reliability.
BTW, I got 64GB for $17.xx - so that's a pretty great deal, IMO.
This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Big savings over paying monthly rental fee
Fast enough for Comcast Blast! tier
Cons: Lights are brighter than necessary
Other Thoughts: I got this when I switched to Comcast with Blast! speed tier. Getting speedtest results that are as good or better than advertised (overprovisioning apparently). Overall completely satisfactory modem.
Only two negatives are that 1) The lights are very bright - but I reduced this (also on router and cable box) using "Dim-It" filtering film. The other problem 2) the unit is very lightweight and can be moved/tilted by the coax cable and ethernet cable. These are both minor issues and not worthy of deducting an egg.
