Pros: Low Power APU perfect for an HTPC Build, runs XBMC and various other programs on windows 7 flawlessly. I was surprised to find i was even able to play a number of games on it when my main rig was down (granted, i did transfer over my video card at the time.)
Other Thoughts: If you're building an HTPC or workstation and don't intend to play games, this has plenty of power to get the job done without breaking the bank. I Bought it about two years ago, absolutely worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: strong, reliable, and built to last. Cords are long enough to do whatever you need with them.
Cons: not modular, and with long cords, cable management can be a bit of a hassle
Other Thoughts: overall, this thing has survived constant 24/7 operation in buildings with poor wiring for nearly 5 years. It's outlived the original motherboard and has yet to so much as hiccup. I paid 140 for it and as far as i'm concerned, it's been worth every penny. If you're thinking about it and you really don't care if your PSU is modular or not, get this one. It's a winner.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works, fairly cheap(Caught it on sale), PCIE
Cons: Provided drivers are trash for windows 7. Latest drivers on manufacturer's website also yield poor performance compared to the $3 no-name usb adapter i have.
Other Thoughts: as noted, the provided drivers and latest drivers on the Mfg.website are pretty bad. Using generic Atheros drivers for the AR9485 chipset yields substantially better transfer speeds on windows 7 than the manufacturer provided drivers.READ FULL REVIEW
