Pros: The only good I see from this board is the sound quality. I can hear (at least it seems that way) this audio output is better, louder, and more full than with the lower quality sound chips.
Cons: This product has serious problems with USB stability. Most of the USB ports stop and start at random. Since connectivity to USB devices is essential, this means this ROG B450 board is a complete failure. Every day, every hour - sometimes within minutes, the USB ports will disconnect my devices (including my webcam, my external hard drive, my writing tablet, and my mouse). This a few seconds (or longer sometimes) they will reconnect - then my external drive will pop up and my focus will move automatically to that thereby selecting files, etc. that are causing problems (loss of data).
Overall Review: I have never in my live had a MB behave like this. It is the last time I will buy an ROG MB.
Pros: I really like the feel of this keyboard. The responsiveness is very good for what I do with keyboards (much better than the AZZA delta which I haaaaatttteeee). The keys are very snappy, easy to press, feel good, and have similar responsiveness between all of the keys according to my perception including the space bar. All in in all a superb key board.
Cons: Why the low rating?
The con is the defect of the L key (which is serious for me as I type a lot). Unlike any other keys on the keyboard that I have found so far, when I press the L key, sometimes 2 L's are typed. If I do a quick double press on the L key (such as when typing the word "call") in my reports, then 3 or 4 L's get typed consistently. Almost every word I type with the "L" key is misspelled because of this. Very annoying. I've experimented with other fingers (index finger as opposed to forefinger) on many other keys with a double tap and only 2 of those characters are typed as desired, but almost always, 3 or 4 L's get typed when I do the same action with the L key. This has been a problem since out of the box and has not gone away. If it weren't for this one defect then I would give this keyboard a five star rating for the price.
Overall Review: I generally like it better than Logitech, even so, I've never had a typing problem on the Logitech.
