GIGABYTE GA-X150-PLUS WS (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel C232 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - No Frills mobo supporting all the latest and greatest chips from intel? YES!
- Cheap.
- Works As you'd expect.

Cons: - Too Cheap. Poor UEFI implementation without much support from the OEM.
- Not a lot of extras in the box.
- Lacks some of the other features you'd find in comparable boards.

Other Thoughts: - Overall good budget board for a newbie or someone who just needs a cheap PC.
- Wouldn't recommend to anyone who knows what they're doing or wants to do overclocking.

OCZ TRION 150 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

3 out of 5 eggs Decent Storage Solution but not a high end one 04/20/2016

This review is from: OCZ TRION 150 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) TRN150-25SAT3-480G

Pros: - Not DOA!
- Formats to a little under 450gb (447GB)
- Decent speeds Read (MBps): 551/567 / Write (MBps): 533/545 - Samsung Magician*

Cons: - Not a ton of storage for media, but enough for a typical OS drive.
- Could/should be much faster
- OCZ doesn't inspire too much confidence. They were the first SSDs I bought back in 2008, but they're also the only SSDs I've had fail.

Other Thoughts: Be aware there's no include a spacer bracket for mounting this drive in a laptop that takes a 9.5mm drive.
Drive imaging software is not included either. :-/


Pros: Supports the latest and greatest chips from intel.
Small form factor to fix in virtually any case.
Good manual with detailed instruction for the noobs.
Great packaging for such a low cost board.
Ease to navigate bios.
Gigabyte seems to be supplying a good amount of timely updates for bios & drivers.

Cons: Not a huge fan of the layout, wish there were more expansion slots and ram slots.
Onboard audio isn't great.
Not the best overclocker out there

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'd say if you wans a reliable no frills WS PC with support for the latest ram and intel cpus this is a good product to fill the need, and that's what this is. It fulfills the basics, its not a premium or enthusiast grade product, it's just a board that is built to lass to make a decent modern day PC that's better than 95% of what you can find inside a retail built workstation or premium PC
