When you unequip it, it goes in the mission items tab of your inventory.
The bug has not been fixed. as of right now you cannot augment it...

Here is a guide

Ok, I must not fully get it still. Each planet has a shard, each planet is a different level and while i go to each planet as i level I am usually there for about 4-5 levels. Now with that being said from level 15-23, i should be able to get all 3 shard pieces... and when I do I have to Start all over again at level 24 for the new pieces for those pieces. Does that sound right? the reason i say that is because looking at the above thread and the guide listed I can get only one on Balmorra and the next one is on Nar... but now im alrdy level 25... I dont get it

"Some count more than other" is not really the right way to put it.
If someone is playing a Jedi Knight for example, then the Aim and Cunning stats will not be simply less useful, but in fact they are completely useless, so there is no point in getting them.

but you also get a exp points for every datacron you find, and hey, free exp is good for you.
Not sure if serious.
Telling someone to get datacrons for the experience points is a terrible idea, in a game with a level cap and tons of repeatable content.

The experience points you can get from a Datacron is only a little bit more than what one gets from killing one (1) standard or weak enemy that is same level as themselves. Considering that many of the datacrons will take a very long time to get even if you are good at it and get it on the first try, the amount of exp you get is totally not worth it, if that is the only benefit you get. You could get many hundreds of times more exp (or some cases even a lot more than that) if you spent the same amount of time doing something else.

The overall system is pretty screwed up. The progression of the shards doesn't match up with level progression really at all. My guy is 48 and still using a lvl 24 matrix because I have yet to get to the third shard I need for a lvl 32 that will do me any real good.

Most do but each planet DOES NOT have a color shard. You can reuse the shards. The martix can be diassembled with a tool. There is also a shard on your starter planet so by the time you are 24, you should have 2 identical colors plus another.

i figured it out with looking at the planets and locations and reading that you can disassemble the cubes to get the shards back for the next teir lvl of cube... now my last question is can i go to Republic starting areas to grab shards to complete (Ord Mantell) to be exact to make a cube? ( I am an Empire player) And two planets for the lvl 32 cube dont have shards if I am correct... (Alderaan and Taris) Taris does have one for the Republic (green) but not for the Empire...Not listed anyway. Thats why I ask if its possible to go to Ord Mantell... can you help? Thanx again

Matrix Cubes are useless, since you get a free bettlemaster relics set when you hit 50 which are better.
And you can't craft it earlier if you are gathering the shards naturally, and not as soon as you get the ship.
Thus its safe to ignore them, unless you want to get their codex entries.
