Pros: Strong stable board once you get it running, supports quad sli/cfx, 8 cores, plus many other processors. THX TruStudio is a beautiful thing, XFAST LAN actually does improve internet performance, 32gb RAM supported supposedly.
Cons: Many. Period. No USB 3.0 header and on-board 3.0 controllers are a waste of time to even attempt to try, takes a lot longer to boot and restart if they are enabled anyways. So there are actually no working USB 3.0 ports at all. Bios will not select my Solid State Drive as boot with default bios, it has to be changed manually along with AHCI. Don't install any of their useless software but THX TruStudio and XFAST LAN.
Other Thoughts: I've even update the bios hoping it would correct the issues however all of them still persist throughout the updated versions so it's pointless to risk for most users, if you think it's going to fix your problems your wrong will just void your warranty so don't bother!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've had mine running Win7 x64 for nearly 2 years through 2 builds now and couldn't be happier. Installations and updates are ridiculously fast. VM and Ubuntu run like Super Computers. Games and maps load nearly instantly as well, like BF2 & 3, Crysis 1 & 2. This and probably any SSD is the best performance gain any computer will see by far, just make sure you are properly in AHCI mode and you will have no problems. Seems as fast as the day I bought it.
Cons: None that I have seen!
Other Thoughts: If you can't install OS with BIOS in AHCI Mode, install in IDE but after you get to desktop find registry key to change from IDE to AHCI (simple google search will render good results) then reboot and change to AHCI or auto in BIOS and you'll have everything there is to brag about in your pc or laptop, you won't believe the gains a ssd will make. For T.R.I.M. to run all you have to do is put your pc in standby once in a while, never defrag a ssd!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High Gain 5dbi antenna lets me pick up neighbors internet around the corner when my Charter goes out, they use dsl with satellite and they never seem to lose connection. Good speed, installed right away after downloading the driver and pointing Win to it.
Cons: nill so far... knock on wood!
Other Thoughts: Didn't use the software utility included, so not sure of its usefulness.READ FULL REVIEW
