Zotac A55ITX-B-E Desktop Motherboard - AMD A55 Chipset - Socket FM2
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs So far So good 11/23/2013

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.

New From USA 101 Zones Wireless GSM / Telephone Home Security Alarm Burglar System + Door or Window / PIR Motion Sensor+Siren
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: A Big Fat Zero

Cons: The Cheapest of the cheap import garbage like you'd find in a flea market, or at the ring toss booth on the midway of a county fair. The website for bravolink is a single page, dead link site. No way to contact for any kind of support.. The main controller leaves the land line open (does not hang up at all so it can't call out). I'm afraid to spend money on a SIM card for it as it may do the same. 3ft of wire on the alarm buzzer, 4ft on the power wort, and a 4ft telephone cable. The best part of this system is the double sided tape. I'm pretty sure the From USA means the village in Taiwan named Usa.

Other Thoughts: I wish I would,t have bought this thing. With no way to RMA, I'm stuck with it..

GIGABYTE GA-A55M-DS2 FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After 6 months this board is still working fine, with one exception.

Cons: The on-board realtek gigabit NIC suddenly degraded to 10 megabit. No it wasn't a driver, router or CAT5E cable problem either. Both the in bios test and my NetTool showed the same 10Mb.

Other Thoughts: Dollar for Dollar, It made no sense to RMA it and pay shipping and have a week or two downtime because of the NIC problem. I installed a Intel PCI-e gigabit NIC and now can both download much faster, and transer files much faster than I could when the On-board NIC was working correctly.
