MSI A78M-E45 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I like the I/o and slots arrangement on this board. Both PS/2 ports is nice, 4 USB3 ports is very nice, 3 express slots plus one standard PCI, 6 SATA 3's, 4 memory slots. So many cheap boards skimp on I/O & memory slots and to me it's the most important thing I look for in a board.

The BIOS is robust and easy to use, and the board is stable.

Cons: None. I am concerned about one thing though. I have an MSI FM1 board that's been in service for a couple of years and for some reason, the plastic frame around the CPU that anchors the heat sink failed. The plastic seems to have crystallized from head and got brittle and just came apart. The heat sink literally fell off. This on a running computer that was sitting still and hadn't been disturbed in ages. Sure looks like the same design on this FM2 board. Oh well, time will tell.

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these to build us some new office computers from. All three came up easily and quickly without a hitch and the users love them. All have SSD's and the same A6 processor and Gskill memory.

These AMD APU systems deliver a big bang for the buck.

Vizta V24Lmha1 Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonable price and looked fine for office use

Cons: Put into service on a Friday and Monday morning it's HDMI port had completely quit. Still worked over the VGA port, but insisted there was no signal over the HDMI. I pulled the HDMI cable from the back of it and stuck it into another monitor and it worked fine, so I know there's signal.

Other Thoughts: Only buy if your time is not valuable to you and you don't mind messing with returns.

USB 3.0 Durable 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Me again. In my last review I made note that it took 3 weeks to get this enclosure because it was mailed from China. Well, I liked the enclosure so much that I ordered a couple more. Only this time, much to my surprise, I got them in 3 days. They were mailed to me out of California. So apparently they've changed their distribution model and have some inventory in the US and they're filling orders quickly now. Even more highly recommended than before!

Cons: No cons other than what was mentioned in my previous review, which wasn't much.
