Pros: Small, this thing is the size of an internal CD Drive. Like put it in your bag and take it home small.

Cons: Could be faster.

2 out of 5 eggs Dead channel B, worst support ever 03/05/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z87 PRO3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nice for the price, if it works. Newegg is always the best part of buying PC hardware. They seem to actually care, and work with you.

Cons: DDR channel B dead out of the box. I am not the only one to have this issue. Where is the support phone number? You have the sales number. You can email support.
Guess what, 1 day later, nothing back from them, other than the confirmation that they got my email.

Other Thoughts: My build went well. Got Gskil ram that is supposed to work with the board as per Asrock compatibility chart. Installed as per usual slot arrangement A1-B1. Get a message, channel B ram failed, re-seat, try again. Hmm. Swapped them around, same thing. Did A2-B2, Same. Installed both chips into A1-A2, works single channel. Tried a single chip in either of the B slots, completely dead. Just for giggles, updated bios to latest version. Same thing. Even more giggles tried 2 chips in channel B, same thing. Finally tried other known working ram, same story This is the first time, in 14 years of building computers, that I have had dead dimms. So now, I have to RMA the board. Which will take 5 days minimum. And while this happens, I get to tell my customer to go beat sand while all this happens.

Oh, lets not forget that I just assembled this all for free, and get to do it again when the new board arrives. How about the home user that gets to go out and buy more thermal paste. And in the process hopes not to break everything that was assembled while removing, and installing again.

Either way, the biggest pain, is they do not have any support that you can just call. Or, if this is a known issue, maybe pull the boards back, and stop giving us all these headaches. I don't know if I would try this brand ever again. I have never had an issue with Asus, figured all the great reviews were worth a try. Just my luck.

Pros: This is one seriously awesome keyboard and for the money its hard to argue that it isn't. Keys feel really nice, its between have a laptop keyboard and the big button keyboards. Keys are nice and quiet too.

Cons: Perhaps some more function buttons?

Other Thoughts: This is just too cheap to pass up.
