Good color, low input lag
Pros: Very low input lag for an IPS, cheap, 75hz, good color as in most IPS panels
Cons: I wish 1440p monitors didn't cost so much extra
Overall Review: I tried Black Ops 4 with this monitor. Input lag was very low and response times were better than other IPS displays. Besides the resolution, this is a great monitor if you want one that can do it all. Color, low input lag and response times.
Good board while it lasted
Pros: Lots of features including an onboard RAID controller, multiple PCie
Cons: Reliability if the reviews are to be believed
Overall Review: I have had this board for just over a year and use it everyday. I try to limit the times I restart the computer and for years have always used S3 sleep. When resuming, randomly (like 1 of 10 times), the SATA controller would stay asleep causing the computer to blue screen. Now a year later, S3 is useless because the computer will blue screen (due to a SATA controller error) almost every time after resuming from S3. I have switched multiple HDDs, many fresh installs of retail 64bit Windows 7, used the Intel and the RAID controller to no avail. The issue is definitely the board. This was a degenerative problem for me as S3 is now unusable.
Cheaper alternative to a Thunderbolt hub
Pros: 4k/60 works if your USB bandwidth is 10GBps (4k/60 works in 1 of my two laptops) Half or less the price of a Thunderbolt hub SD and Micro SD cards read as separate devices so you can mount both at the same time
Cons: These devices are all made similar in that their USB cord is a foot or less. I had to get a USB-C 10GB extension cord to extend the length.
Overall Review: Besides DisplayPort and 3.5mm audio, this device can replace what a Thunderbolt dock can do at a third of the price.
Works well and fast with an SSD
Overall Review: I've had many flash drives just die abruptly and it is very annoying. SSDs are a lot faster and more reliable than flash drives so I needed an adapter to use one I have laying around. I ordered one of these but it was defective. Sabrent sent me a replacement and it works well.
Fast read, average write
Pros: Read speeds nearing 400Mb
Cons: Write speeds are not great at 60-80Mb So small that I misplace it all the time (but at least I don't break it off the USB port)
Overall Review: This is fairly fast for a USB flash drive however external USB SSDs are getting pretty cheap and have much faster write speeds. I may opt for one of those in the near future.
Works well at least with 4 low power devices
Pros: Can't be beat for the price
Overall Review: I have a wired keyboard, wireless headset adapter, USB flash drive (I get same speed as if it were plugged directly into the motherboard) and flash card reader. Of course I am not using all of them at the same time for max power draw but in the few days I've had this, the hub seems to provide sufficient power while plugged into a 3.2 Gen 2 USB port (note the hub is only rated to be gen 1 speed). I had another one (possibly even an Anker) that had power/connection issues. I've had another one of these on my other system for at least 3 months and have had zero problems with that one.
