Pros: Basic Windows 7 with SP1 installs cleanly.
Cons: Windows stuck trying to add updates. Tried both Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional. Both hang up searching for updates. I think I had this same problem some months ago on my Gigabyte GA-Z170N mobo as well.
Other Thoughts: This is not an isolated problem. Search the web for "Windows 7 update stuck" and you will find many instances reported. Had to return the motherboard for a refund.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
Pros: Compact, yet just enough room to maneuver. Very easy to assemble if you remove the power supply first. Just about as small as you can get for an m-ITX case.
Cons: No reset button. Upper bay for optical drive only, cannot remove panel to use for other inserts. Front USB ports 2.0 only. Ports hidden behind closed door which you have to leave open if you want to use USB bluetooth/RF adapter. Front bezel in glossy piano black which shows fingerprints. Power button hard to push (spring too stiff).
Other Thoughts: Front bezel has place to insert LED to provide a lighted side stripe (not mentioned in any description). Case too small for case fan but there are plenty of holes for ventilation. Power supply wires could be a little shorter. Caution: if you use CPU heatsink with fan, you have only 50 mm height clearance. (I am installing an ASRock Q2900-ITX motherboard which uses passive cooling.)
Have decided to return this case in exchange for a Thermaltake Element Q case (exact same case, just different front bezel) because I need to use the 5.25" bay for other purposes.
This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)
Pros: Good, high speed
Cons: Plug somewhat oversized, hard to push into socket. One unit works in socket A but not socket B, another one works in socket B but not in A. Not easily usable. Sometimes causes Windows Explorer to hang up due to incomplete connection.
Other Thoughts: Not worth the savings.READ FULL REVIEW
