5 out of 5 eggs SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 01/27/2016

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E250B/AM

Pros: I recently purchased this drive to replace my aging Samsung 840, “which was actually performing just fine I needed to increase my storage area.” Install went flawlessly did an Acronis image took about seven minutes, where would normally take 14. Noticed an immediate increase in speed not only in boot time but in overall performance. Drive was set up GPT with no problems and running AHCI mode.

Cons: As I said this is a recent install so no problems or issues to report yet, will follow up with any issuer problems later.

Other Thoughts: This is not pertaining to Samsung drives in general, "but it seems that a lot of people seem to have issues with SSD drives on a regular basis. I think a lot of times that are actually system problems other then the hard drive. Make sure your motherboard and operating system is capable of using SSD type drives first. As far as Samsung's tech support goes I've never had to use them yet and have installed several of their drives on my customers system.

Pros: Other then it looks nice, not much else.

Cons: I went to do an install on a MS Vista PC, preliminary went fine. But when I went into the Device Manager I noticed the shipping drivers install the device as a generic USB wireless B adapter, not a 802.11/N 150Mbps! I tried all the version of the drivers provided by the Manufacturer, some of which would not install properly at all. In fact the stock shipping drivers installed the device as an TL-WN721N, which in not the model I purchased! TP-Link needs to get the drivers for the device situated & correct. It has the Qualcomm chip in it so it should perform well.

Other Thoughts: I believe the main issue is the drivers in all fairness, so correcting these issues should alleviate the install issue.

Foxconn G41MXE LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Foxconn G41MXE 02/12/2013

This review is from: Foxconn G41MXE LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great price for an LGA 775 motherboard, very straightforward. Will accommodate longer video cards decently. Nice compact design.

Cons: My only complaint on this motherboard was there seem to be quite a bit of delay on file transfers and accessing files it seems to lag when you opened them quite a bit. Have not experienced this on other G41 based motherboards.

Other Thoughts: Be aware of the 8gig memory limitation of the G41 chipset.
