This review is from: ASRock X99 Extreme4 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Good price, nice layout
Cons: I had some memory issues where my GSkill PC4 24000 memory (4x8GB) would not run stable with XMP profile selected. Was at BIOS 1.80, decided to upgrade to 1.90 as memory compatibility is supposedly improved. I did a BIOS copy A>B operation. Waited over two hours with a progress bar at 0%, discovered system was actually hung so I had to reboot. Now, nothing, no post, etc. It seems both BIOS are now corrupted. Setting BIOS to boot fro "A" or "B" fails, tried clearing CMOS already.
Other Thoughts: There should be some other recovery method to force a BIOS flash from a USB drive upon boot.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well, it does provide 5 volts...
Cons: Only charges my Galaxy Nexus at the USB slow rate (500 ma), not the fast "AC" (1 amp) rate. I'm using the same cable that (with another charger) gives me the fast "AC" speed charge. The charger is a night night with color-cycling LEDS. Very bright.
Other Thoughts: The charger was shipped from China via US registered mail so I had to drive to my post office to sign and pick up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The idea of a coiled USB-to-micro USB cord. The wire part of the cord appears to be well made.
Cons: I've tried to use two of the four cords I bought so far. In both cases, the plastic hood on the micro-USB connector comes off the first time I tried to unplug the connector from my phones. The hood isn't glued, it seems it's just supposed to loosely snap on. With the hood unattached there are exposed wires and soldered connections. It's also difficult to unplug the micro-usb after the hood comes off.READ FULL REVIEW
