GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 6.0) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Black. Looks good in my Corsair Carbide case. Doesn't play well with it though (see below).

Hosts my Fedora 20 installation on a HyperX SSD with no trouble so far. Built-in video works great, without fglrx (open-source radeon driver).

Solid caps are a plus.

Onboard audio is nice and quiet with headphones - a problem I've had on previous Gigabyte motherboards.

Cons: The HDD indicator doesn't work. The trouble is NOT with the case LED, if I plug it onto the Power LED pins, it lights up.

Northbridge heatsink is a bit "shaky" and gets quite hot in use.

Why oh why do they always put the capacitors in the path of the hot air from the CPU?

Only one case fan connector. Wish they put more on, even if they don't have speed monitors.

A keyboard plugged in to the USB3 does not work during BIOS setup. My case only has front USB3 ports - no USB2.

Other Thoughts: It's a nice board, with some minor drawbacks.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Works well with my Netgear Readynas Duo v2. It's on Netgear's recommended drive list. Bought two, for a RAID-1 setup. Speed couldn't be directly tested, since it's on a NAS.

Drives are quiet, except when spinning up/down. In addition to the usual whine of the spindle, there's also a loud click when the head is moved off the park spot.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggs Looks good, needs a few fixes 02/27/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RKKS-12001 Digital Kitchen Scale

Pros: Looks nice, fairly accurate, easy to read display.

Cons: The capacitive buttons don't work well for me. It's hard to accurately tare the scale, since the force of pressing the tare button adds to the weight of the bowl.

Needs a level surface to work properly, since the sensors are in the feet.

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale for $10. Can't complain too loudly at that price!
