ASRock H87M-ITX LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Boards are really straight forward and easy to get set up. Overall performance is fine a non over clocked setup which I was after for two new workstations in a office. Some I7's and Crucial Black Ballistix modules with XMP and WD Velociraptor drives, and you got your self a pretty potent machine even for Business use.

Cons: Only thing that bothers me about these boards and it not so much a con . When doing a install Win7 X64 you have to boot into safe mode sometimes during a install of the USB 3.0 drivers and then delete all the USB root hubs. I have lost use of the mouse and keyboard on this board and numerous Intel USB 3.0 boards after doing a driver install. Only after deleting the USB root Hub and letting the operating system redetect everything was the issue resolved. Mouse and keyboard was usable again. There was no setting in the bios that affected this result. ASRock even release a bios update to help this issue but its really just a nuisance

Other Thoughts: Since Intel is getting out of the MB market I have to start using other boards for office platforms and this board is fitting the bill nicely. I just hope the durability is there.

I have build over 500 pc's using only Intel branded boards and only had 5 that were DOA or some other type of issues out of the box. Most of these Core2 PC are still running today but are really starting to show there age now. I need to find a viable replacement and these might be the answer. The Intel NUC's are also nice but they do have limits on what they can be used for. I just don't like the HDMI video on these. The connectors are mini HDMI and will not take any abuse.

TRENDnet TK-423K 4-Port USB PS/2 Audio KVM Switch Kit

1 out of 5 eggs Junk No USB no matter what... 05/16/2012

This review is from: TRENDnet TK-423K 4-Port USB PS/2 Audio KVM Switch Kit

Pros: Made out of metal.

Cons: Everything else. USB cables to short. Need to buy a extension cable to get this to work. USB never worked on any of the 4 ports. No mouse, no keyboard, no nothing.

Other Thoughts: I have two of Trendnets server 8 port units that work with out issue and this piece of junk can't even support a single USB mouse or keyboard.

Intel BLKDG41RQ LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Not good enough, quality issues 01/13/2012

This review is from: Intel BLKDG41RQ LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Cost and Intel name

Cons: Typical Realtek issues. Arrived with the Realtek Gigabit Embedded NIC being DOA. This is not the first time I have had problems with intel boards that use Realtek NIC chipset or sound chipsets. I wish Intel would scrap using Realtek, they are just a a sub standard NIC platform as compared to INTELs own NIC chipsets.

Other Thoughts: Not worth the price when you get sub standard hardware on the board.
