MSI AM1I AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great features and price, awful network chip 06/06/2014

This review is from: MSI AM1I AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Nice features, all solid caps, full-length PCI-e slot. Good price.

Cons: Terrible Realtek LAN chip on any non-Windows OS, will frequently not negotiate a gigabit connection with known-good cables (or even with a cable that worked the day before).

Save yourself some trouble and get an Intel gigabit PCI-e card, if you can. Unfortunately, that basically doubles the price of the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for, I guess. It is a cheap board, but I'd happily pay for a reliable NIC.

Rosewill RDEE-12002 Aluminum 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Fast transfers
- Good heat dissipation
- No noise

Cons: - Activity light is insanely bright, it looks like a strobe in a dark room. Fixed with some black duct tape or electrical tape.
- The USB cable's connection on the drive end isn't that tight, may need reinforcement if you plan on being in motion a lot.

Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: High throughput, high IOPS, great reliability. No firmware updates needed at this time.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Did a lot of research before purchasing, and very pleased with the results.
