Pros: Crapload of USB ports. It's been a good motherboard. Still plugging along 2 1/2 years later.
Cons: USB 3.0 ports do not work. They're set correctly in the BIOS and I even upgraded the PS to 750 watts. Still nothing.
Other Thoughts: I deal with a lot of RAW camera files and USB 3.0 is a huge difference in data transfer. Not happenin' with this computer. Probably gonna find another brand because I can't figure out what the problem is.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB3000100 Black
Pros: It's easy to set up and works as it should.
Other Thoughts: Not so much the drive but the customer service is above and beyond. I took a lightning strike at my house. Even though it shut down my computer (it survived oddly enough) it fried everything on a separate wall plug that this drive was plugged in to. I contacted Seagate, explained what happened and if they had any videos on how to open the case. This was not a warranty issue because I figured I was out of luck. They asked me to hang on as they passed it up the chain. They did not have videos but advised that they existed elsewhere and on top of that and allowed me to open the case (carefully) and see if I could salvage my photos. When I was done I was given permission to return the drive and they would replace it under warranty even though there was no fault on Seagate's part. As it turned out, the drive was ok once I managed to free it from its plastic bonds. Plugged it into an available SATA port and the computer found it and installed it properly. Nothing was damaged on the drive either. Seagate has easily won my loyalty and I highly recommend this company!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech 970-000001 Revue Companion Box with Google TV and Keyboard Controller
Pros: There were, when I bought this, several add-on boxes for watching Netflix or listening to Pandora, YouTube or other applications. This one was far and away the best because it had a keyboard. It takes a bit to set it up (a few minutes) but once it's done it does the rest. Excellent for non-Smart TVs. You can use wifi or an ethernet cable. The keyboard is your wireless remote.
Cons: It's not a deal breaker but even when off the cooling fan will never shut down. It runs constantly. I had this on a bedroom TV and it drove me nuts. I finally came to realize I had to unplug its power supply every night if I wanted to sleep. Oh, and some compatibility issues with its built in browser. You can watch YouTube videos because it's Google TV but not others
Other Thoughts: I paid $100 for this over a year ago. A refurb for $65 is good dealREAD FULL REVIEW
