This review is from: ECS A55F2-M3(1.0) FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Was fast while it was working
Cons: Would give this no eegs if I could. After installing Windows 7, I started installing windows updates, the system screen goes blank after a while. Ctrl-alt-del - no response, pressed the reset button - no response, held in the power button - no response. Had to shut off the power @ the power supply, restarted the system, windows says not shut down properly (duh) so I tell it to restart normally. Systems is back up, for a while, then black screen again. Repeat, repeat repeat. I started over with windows 7, wiped the machine and re-installed from scratch, same story.
Other Thoughts: Contacted ECS's tech support, they responded that I should flash the BIOS, I checked their site, the only BIOS that would be newer than the existing system BIOS was for windows 8 support. I'm not running windows 8, I told them this. Like their motherboard - no response. I downloaded their "live BIOS update" utility and ran it on the system, it tells me the BIOS are up-to-date, no update required! I contact them again to let them know this - no response!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Transcend 4GB microSDHC Flash Card with P3 card reader Model TS4GUSDHC6-P3
Pros: Compact, light weight and inexpensive.
Cons: microSD cards are VERY hard to remove once they are inserted. The cards seem to need to be inserted too far to start with.
Other Thoughts: This is an interesting device, but I think Transcend could have made it easier to insert/remove the cards, maybe designed to let the card edge hang out so you can get hold of it.READ FULL REVIEW
