ASUS P8H61-I R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

5 out of 5 eggs Great H61 board for my Sandy Bridge i5 10/08/2016

This review is from: ASUS P8H61-I R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: My Sandy Bridge CPU's refuse to die, and they are still pretty quick on their feet. I bought this board to downsize one of my long time running systems. For an H61 chipset, it does its job perfectly well. I knew going into buying this that I would miss out on all the frills and features the 7X series chipsets provide, but there are ways to work around those. I'd say this board does everything quite nicely.

I had a small hick-up trying to get the RAM working right, but a CMOS reset fixed that. After that it was smooth sailing, even the BIOS was up to date with the most recent revision. The board never gave me any hassle with any of the hardware I have hooked up to it, unlike my MSI board that complains every chance it gets. I definitely like the ASUS UEFI BIOS more than others. System stability is rock solid so far.

We will see how this board does in time.

Cons: Price. I know I am paying a premium for the size, but the chipset is so outdated and lacks features that I'm surprised this isn't cheaper.

Dell UltraSharp U2414H Black 23.8

Pros: BEAUTIFUL color, slim bezel, lightweight, and all the adjustments. Worth having three in surround for epic gaming. With so many features it's hard not to love this monitor.

Cons: That is, until, we get into the only con about this screen. I ordered three of them. Three. All three came with the dreaded bug where they don't wake up after being in sleep mode for an extended period of time. The only way to get them working proper again is to power them off and on. Replacing the stock DP cables didn't help and neither did messing around with the settings. The internet didn't have much to say either as all the methods on Dells forums didn't work. The last step is to send them in for replacement, but according to others with the issue, you can get another one with the same problems.

Thankfully all my screens are plugged into a power strip, so I have to power cycle the strip when I want to start them up. An extra step that's trivial but shouldn't even need to be done in the first place. And yes, this happens when setup for DP chain and setup normally.

Other Thoughts: I see many reviewers have the same issues that I have with my screens. It's not exclusive to this screen alone, but other dell screens are having the same problems with exiting sleep mode. Whats even more disturbing is voters are coming through here and labeling these reviews as unhelpful. It seems a bit odd that any reviewer that is having these problems has so many unhelpful votes. In extreme cases, some reviewers are calling others names for having these sleep mode issues.

The reviews here speak for the product, but this isn't the only website where this screen is getting bad reviews. Google Dell sleep mode issues for the U2414H and you'll see way more complaints than you see here.

Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Extreme 3D Pro USB Joystick

4 out of 5 eggs Good beginner/casual stick. 06/04/2015

This review is from: Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Extreme 3D Pro USB Joystick

Pros: Good stick height - a little tall for my hands but I can still reach all the buttons with relative ease. Great sensitivity, great resistance, and no built-in dead zone (though this could also be a Con depending on the person). Throttle feels nice too, however I never used it due to the positioning.

Cons: Numbered buttons on the base are cheap and can stick after a short time. Stick is slightly loose while centered and quickly becomes worse the more it's used - getting a perfect center eventually becomes a chore. This can be "fixed" by adjusting dead zones in your game or software, but you'll lose sensitivity.

Other Thoughts: This stick served me well for a few months in Elite Dangerous. However, as my skill level increases, I notice more and more the QC shortfalls of this stick. I have since moved on to an entry level HOTAS by Thrustmaster and haven't looked back.
