Amazing

HTC 99HASS001-00 VIVE Tracker (3.0) Black
HTC 99HASS001-00 VIVE Tracker (3.0) Black

Pros: 1 Fast charge 2. accurate locations when base stations are correct and no reflections form solid floor glass/screens/tv's etc are present. 3 Great battery life. 4 Super lightweight.

Cons: 1. Try to not use USB 3.0 ports. The frequency they use acctually disrupts the radio these are shipped with. 2. That Fancy glass case and reflections from your phone and screens can cause a slight issue with the base stations. 3a. Do not use a hub, these need to be as near as direct as possible to your motherboard usb 2.0 port. 3b. A usb hub allows multiple devices to be chained to the same port, the problem is they share time in milli-seconds to the frequency on USB 2.0 - This means too many devices and you're doing to have weird tracking, ( a leg flying up hip gyrating weird, etc.) 4. They do not have the same spectrum for line of sight as the Vive tracker 2.0's, but its a few degrees they lose. Not important to some but, that little bit in motion capture can make something look different.

Overall Review: Easy setup and best steam vr tracking there is. THe require 2.0 base stations so sorry vive 1.0 users.

Good for the money

HyperX Predator M.2 2280 240GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SHPM2280P2/240G

Pros: After it gets going its fast.

Cons: After you get things going for a budget its a good price. Win 10 takes a bit of work to directly install (note this review is during win 10 launch.) If I had to do it again, I would have sacrificed a PCIE slot for a different brand/model instead. The learning curve on how this drive works as you read about the install for Win10 and where this falls short teaches you how hard drives communicate with processors.

Great for 720p

Pros: Handles 720p on medium settings well. Still Works great for nvenc up to 1080p as well for say OBS with low GPU needs.

Cons: Cannot do massive browser GPU loads in OBS, do not turn settings to ultra

Overall Review: Can play games or do light OBS streaming.

Middle of the road

Pros: Easy to work with, clean looks. PCIE 4.0 up-gradable WIFI.

Cons: Certain OC features feel they are lackluster compared to other boards with same components. It feels held back to protect its name.

Overall Review: Can recommend for the simplicity of its a very good looking board with working x570, and up-gradable WIFI.
