This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Recognized my SSD, 8core processor and DDR3 without issue
No issues in imaging and performed fairly solid
Cons: Network port (Realtek) is getting flaky already and I've only been seriously using this machine for 2 months now, connection keeps dropping off - Tried using Static IP, and several tweaks of the controller properties (Flow Control, Green / Power / WoL settings) so far keeps doing it - started 3 days ago. Tried latest drivers, tried rolling back drivers as well
Other Thoughts: not sure if the network card issue was something with recent windows updates (which sporadic lately) or a hardware setting - router works great with everything else and I've tried changing ports on the router and even the network cable - I've been in IT since 1995, so I know what I'm doing here - these are problems I haven't seen in 10 years thanks to network card improvements. Will probably have to give up on this NIC and use a different one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston FCR-HS3 USB 3.0 Support CompactFlash, CF Type I, CF Type II, SD, SDHC, SDHC UHS-I, SDXC, SDXC UHS-I, microSD, microSDHC, microSDXC, Memory Stick/M2, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo, Memory Sti
Pros: FAST, reads well, does not have the issue I've had with most externals where certain card slots give out and it has a TRANSFLASH slot!
Cons: the only con is that I had to go external to get this sort of reliability.
Other Thoughts: the transflash is a big thing for me, I use this to load GIGS of music and videos to my microSD cards (32 and 64 gig capacity) from my USB3 external media drive. MUCH faster than USB2 readers and WAY faster than using the USB connection to the phone.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive STCA4000100 Black
Pros: Ran fast
Cons: one fall and it's all over.
Other Thoughts: Ran this as my primary media drive (Music, Pictures, Videos) since I bought it here last april, well last month my Father in Law and his sons where working on an add-on to my house while I was at work, when I came home the drive was on it's side. I reconnected everything and plugged it in and it recognized and behaved about all of about an hour before things started going wonky, I listened to it and got the click of death. Windows still recognizes it and sees the data, but any attempt to access or move it results in lockups.READ FULL REVIEW
