This review is from: Rosewill RCDV-11011 - 1.6-Foot (50 cm) SATA III Cable with Locking Latch
Pros: Thin, flexible, not too long and not too short.
Other Thoughts: These are the best cables I've ever seen. They are twice thinner then "standard" cables, which means better airflow, they bend very easy but feel very durable and high quality. The length is perfect for medium tower with cable management.
The latch doesn't work on most SSD drives I've purchased in last 3 years, however it works on new Samsung EVOs
For $1.49 and free shipping I wish I bought 30 more for the future.
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Lots of features, back panel is filled with ports.
TRIM works in RAID0! (this is the main reason I'm upgrading from P67 chipset to Z77)
Cons: Unstable, constantly random reboots, freezes, bios reset and even corruption.
Other Thoughts: Waking up computer from sleep usually bringing reboot (with several automatic shut down for 2 seconds each) then message about BIOS was restored or needs to be reset to default (which by the way was all default other then disabling unused ports and hard drives related settings)
The latest, one year old bios that is available at gigabyte website is BETA and absolutely unstable. If can freeze at boot with no way restoring it without opening computer case, then it say that bios is corrupted and copies "old" version from secondary chip.
Attempting install USB3 driver on Windows 7 x64 causes BSOD
3D BIOS is absolutely a joke, good thing they don't shove it in your throat: once you switched to "advanced" mode, it stays there.
In the past I've had nothing but problems with Gigabyte motherboards and hoped they've changed by now, evidently not much.
They make hands down best feature-rich boards, but quality is lacking.
This was the last time I bought a Gigabyte motherboard, never again.
I'm giving an extra egg as a curtsy for the features it offers and that it might not be compilable with components I've picked for my previous motherboard.
CPU: Sandy Bridge 2600K @3.0Ghz
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB @800Hhz (9-9-9-24) (CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9)
PSU: Rosewill BRONZE Series RBR1000-M 1000W
Pros: - Comfortable
- All buttons easy accessible even with short fingers
- Dedicated multi-click button (no additional software required)
- Different weights options
- Braided cord (should last longer)
Cons: This mouse is too sensitive to the usb it's plugged into. I believe it's too sensitive to the voltage, because with 6ft extension cord it doesn't work, it skips like with a broken wire or doesn't work at all (no detected by the computer)
I've tested it on several computers with and without extension cord, on different surfaces, different OS.
At first I thought my gaming mouse pad got polished and mouse laser doesn't reflect very well, and indeed without the pad it worked much better, however after closer investigation I came to the conclusion it's not the pad, it's the mouse. I have a 10 years old optical mouse and it works great on this pad.
Then I plugged it to different computer and on the same pad it was working ever worse!
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this mouse. For this price there are more reliable devices.READ FULL REVIEW
