This review is from: ECS LIVA 2GB DDR3L RAM installed Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Pros: Small, easy to assemble, a deal if you all you want is a streaming pc
Cons: Ubuntu support?
Other Thoughts: This unit is supposed to be capable of running Ubuntu, however I've tried numerous times to get the Liva to boot from a USB that has Ubuntu 14.10 on it, but it keeps reverting back to the bios. The operating system setting is locked on Windows 8.1 contrary to the manual stating that newer versions of Ubuntu are supported... even providing you with a link to download the latest version of it. My email to ECS concerning the issue has so far gone unanswered... and as such this unit will be going back to NewEgg if I can't get the Ubuntu loaded.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice looking board, easy overclocking features... loved the illuminated, isolated sound circuit.. but that's where the fun stopped
Cons: After a night of gaming I turned the system off as I normally do... two days later I attempted to turn the system on... no power, only a blinking light on the onboard power button. I did multiple changes, PS, RAM, Video, unplugged all devices, reconnected and nothing worked. Frustrated I removed the MB, and replaced with my previous MB and everything booted up fine... the Gigabyte MB has failed. I spent an hour waiting on hold and never got to talk with a human, so I sent a tech request into their online tech help... I didn't hear anything for 4 days, and when I did it was like the person responding never even looked at the original tech request where I had listed all my troubleshooting steps. I've purchased another MB from ASRock which is the currently installed board and most likely won't purchase another Gigabyte product if this is the kind of support they give on their products. I'm going to attempt to see if NewEgg will intervene since this board is slightly older than a month... I just didn't feel like waiting for Gigabyte to decide what & when the felt like supporting their product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Raptor K50 Gaming Keyboard (CH-9000007-NA)
Pros: Very easy to program macros and key-binds with options too numerous to list.
Cons: Still unable to essentially "move" a key from the main keyboard to the macro area and allow it to act the same. Example with the WASD keys I prefer them on the very edge of the keyboard... hence the macro key area, but when I move them there pressing more than one of those keys causes the other to stop functioning. It makes playing World of Tanks unplayable since you are constantly pressing W, and use A & D to maneuver since pressing either A or D while W is pressed stops all forward movement. I've tried numerous ways to set the key-binds up, but still no joy! I'll figure it out someday!READ FULL REVIEW
