This review is from: ASRock G41C-GS LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Bought this to do an economy build for my brother in law. Popped in a processor a couple of DDR2 sticks and it was off to the races. Windows loaded quickly and effectively. Nice little software suite included.
Cons: Power supply connection at the top of the motherboard makes it a stretch if your PS is at the bottom of the case. Other connectors are a bit of a pain too....READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked well with Vista. No fuss installation both for the device and hardware. It reads both the analog and DV without problems. Neat little package and green screen is included. Nice touch!
Cons: No version 15
Other Thoughts: Although it comes with the upgrade code for version 15, the company has chosen to not make it available. That leaves you three generations behind. New Egg should advise their clients that this is so rather than make it a selling point. It may be because this is the original listing for the product and it has not been updates since that time. It's not a huge deal but be upfront about it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel BLKD865PCDL 478 Intel 865P Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: The first one I purchased was an inexpensive motherboard for a decent build. Worked well with XP. Looked and performed like it had been properly refurbished. On board sound didn't work but I had an available sound card.
Cons: The second I bought came with an unusable driver disk and looked like it had been pulled from an old computer five minutes before it was packaged. On board sound was again a problem as well as USB slots.
Other Thoughts: May try one more for a last system powered with ME just for the fun of it.READ FULL REVIEW
