This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2PT LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Way to salvage old 775 CPUs
Cons: Can't think of any... Oh yeah! It would be nice if it had another PCI-X16 slot.... (wishes)
Other Thoughts: Been running BOINC 24/7 since I got this board in January last year. Might get another one just in-case my old GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3R dies. (It's been going since 2008.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I figured that it was a refurb SO it was either going to work or not. It worked!
Cons: Only got a year and a half out of it. It went "POP!" when it went.
Other Thoughts: I was running BOINC with this card 24/7 for months and it never seemed to fail until recently. I tried to take my Corsair 600W power supply with it when it died.
Cannot really complain, the PSU was alright but it kind of freaked me out when one of the circuits blew on the card.
I usually have instant death with refurbs or I get well past their warranty by a year or more. This one made it more.
Pros: Plug and play.
Cons: If you want to play BD movies you need to BUY the software!
Other Thoughts: I have Ashapoo Free Burning Rom and I plugged in the BR burner and burned a Data-BD-R in about 15 minutes... (22GB .mkv) and it played back perfectly.
IF you want to play Blu-ray discs from the store YOU WILL NEED TO GET some software from Nero or Cyberlink. There is no software to play BD movies!!!!
