ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Again, lots of features, lots of SATA ports

Cons: Like a guy below said, the SATA port orientation on the board leaves a little to be desired. They're stacked on top of each other in pairs. If you use locking connectors, and why wouldn't you, then the connector on the bottom will become unlocked when you install the connector on top.

Other Thoughts: I know it sounds bad, but I have been fairly satisfied with this motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggs Really very good but one problem 08/05/2014

This review is from: ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Lots and Lots of features, reasonable price, ASUS brand

Cons: I tried to set up a 4 disk RAID 5 array, install Win7x64, and boot to this array. It worked for a day or two, but then the raid went critical and dropped a drive. I ran SeaTools on the drive and it showed bad. I swapped another drive in, and immediately upon trying to rebuild the array, it went critical again. Ran SeaTools and again the drive was bad. But it wasn't. It turns out that in RAID mode, the third SATA port craps out. It works fine in AHCI or IDE mode, but if you try to run a RAID that third port will fail every time. The drives test fine in other ports. I swapped out SATA cables, power cables, tried 4 different drives. It's the motherboard's 3rd SATA port. I tried again with a 4 disk RAID 10 and same thing - third port fails.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a cheap SYBA fakeRAID card and will try the 4 disk RAID 10 on it. I'd like to RMA and get a new/good board, but that'll put me down for a week or more.

TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

4 out of 5 eggs Really Very Good! 03/18/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button

Pros: Fast setup, good signal, good throughput, easy menus, no need to install third party software, UPnP works flawlessly, if it lasts a couple of years it'll be about the best $20 I've ever spent.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I had an ASUS RT-N12 that I really liked. I had DD-WRT on it and it was rock solid for months and years without requiring a reboot. But then one day the ASUS just bricked. With DD-WRT, or at least my implementation of it, I had to manually do the port forwarding for XBox, torrents, etc. But the new TP-LINK router - you turn UPnP on, and it just works. It sees the XBox and torrent clients and opens up the right ports when the clients are active and closes them again when the clients are inactive. I suppose all UPnP routers are supposed to work this way, but this is my first experience with it.
