LG 7.0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good display

Cons: Will not work with third-party remote control apps. The included remote control app is purposely limited to only control a small list of TVs and cable set-top boxes, and no other devices.

Other Thoughts: I chose the LG because it had built-in IR and I thought it would operate as a universal remote control. LG has its IR controls locked down so third-party apps will not work. The included remote control app is a crippled version of the one included with its cell phones, and it only supports a limited list of TVs and cable set-top boxes. It does not support other devices. If I had known this (if I had even thought to research this issue), I would not have bought this device. Also, if you plan to use it to control a Squeezebox system, do NOT update the software to Android 5, because as of today (2nd quarter of 2015), the Squeezebox app reportedly does not support Android 5.

Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 4FD-00006 Grey 5 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired BlueTrack Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Smooth scroll wheel

Cons: Left mouse button squeaks; difficult to double click

Other Thoughts: I like the shape, the tracking ability, and the scroll wheel. I hate the action of the left mouse button--it squeaks and is difficult to double-click due to sluggish return to position. This mouse is one week old, which makes me suspect a defective unit, but the fact that so many other people complain of a squeaking left mouse button makes me suspect a manufacturing defect.

ECS A75F-M2 FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None yet; not yet operable

Cons: Lacks the standard heatsink backplate, so it's impossible to attach after-market heatsinks (heatsink manufacturers don't include the backplate, because it's usually part of the motherboard)

Other Thoughts: I requested help from Newegg, and their reply was that I should have known the motherboard didn't include the backplate. I am not happy with this response. I wrote to Noctua, whose cooler I bought, and said they can ship me a backplate from Austria (their home office), which will take about three weeks. By the time I have this motherboard assembled, most of the 30-day return period will have expired.
