Pros: Works great for older games and apps that need a 256 bit card. I use mine for personal video encoding on a modest system.
Cons: Had to send 1 back
Other Thoughts: Bought 3 of these. 2 for crossfire, and one for another machine. The third one had issues with the memory and I had to underclock it to 1225. I returned it and got the replacement. Same thing, but this time I decided to run VMT (Video Memtest) after running that one full cycle, which takes over 2hrs, it is now fine at default speeds. The Problem disappeared. SO I guess it just needed to be heated up. New memory of any kind sometimes needs to be stressed. The card is working perfectly now and I'm pleased.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Opened the box to find a brand new looking 6 year old laptop. Not a scratch or blemish on it. Plugged it in, booted it up, entered the activation key for the O/S and it works great
Cons: Not really a con but the 03/27/09 date coded battery is dead and won't charge. But for 62 bucks, I didn't expect perfection. Got a new one for 13 bucks and it fine.
Other Thoughts: Bought this for the garage to run OBD II diagnostics replacing my old and very slow pentium M laptop, but it's almost too nice.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Zotac A55ITX-B-E Desktop Motherboard - AMD A55 Chipset - Socket FM2
Pros: Booted right up with a A4-5300 Trinity. Has Intel Centrino wireless, has Bluetooth.Win7 pro loaded no problem and was up and running in 45 minutes after opening the box. No smoke or sparks which have been reported on other brands of FM2 mITX boards. This one runs cool. It also has 2 PWM fan headers instead of one like many others.
Cons: No internal USB 3.0 header, Support website has no CPU compatibility list.. 65watt max TDP. The manual states SATA 2, Websites claim SATA 3, AMD Overdrive Shows SATA 3 in sys info. Mine came with bios A262PA05 which does not support Richland APU's, which I was afraid of, so I purchased a trinity to go with it.
Other Thoughts: Neither a Pro or Con for me, but there is very little available in the bios for overclocking. Just Voltage adjustments. I purchased this to replace a E-350 mITX that just couldn't do things I needed it to. Obviously this system uses more power than the E-350 did, But it will play a 1080p, run office and gimp, or watch a youtube video without running at 100% load or locking up ar rebooting.READ FULL REVIEW
