ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI USB 3.0 uATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1. Good price for an Asus brand motherboard.
2. Four memory slots.

Cons: 1. PS/2 port is flaky. It works 50% of the time.
2. During boot, pressing F12 does not work for a majority of the time.
3. The layout is cramped with very little space.
4. Customer Service is bad. The wait time for an agent is usually 45 minutes or more.
5. You pay for mailing DOAs to factory. Repaired motherboard comes back within 30 days and malfunctions within 1-to-to months. The constant shipping back and forth will cost more than the original price of the MB.

Other Thoughts: Quality has gone down significantly when Asus and other motherboard makers switched production to Red China.

Rosewill 6.56ft. USB3.0 A Male to A Female Extension Cable, Black, Model RC-6-USB3-AM-AF-BK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1. The construction is good quality. The cable is extra thick with shielding. The two connectors are not gold plated.
2. Rosewill technical service is excellent. An English speaking technician is very knowledgeable on company products.
3. On sale for $2.99 with free shipping, this is a steal for a 3' USB 3.0 extension cable.
4. My order arrived in three days.
5. I use the cable extensions for my keyboard and mouse. They are great!

Cons: 1. The performance results are horrible. Test results show that USB 3.0 speed is equal to USB 2.0 when using the cable extension. The former is slightly faster but not by much - a 6% to 10% increase. These are barely noticeable. Surely, they are not the 10X theoretical speed increase that is hyped by false advertisements.

2. The above results do not surprise me. In the Newegg website, half of the reviews by users reported similar results - you will get USB 2.0 speeds using the Rosewill cable.

Other Thoughts: Because the 50% Newegg reviews on the Rosewill USB 3.0 cables were positive and the prices were cheap, I took a chance and purchased four cables anyway. Although useless for transferring files on USB 3.0 flash drives, they work very well on my keyboard and mouse.
