5 out of 5 eggs It works fine as long as long as it has good dedicated PSU SATA rail. 03/25/2016

This review is from: Atech Flash Technology PRO-77U Flash Reader USB 3.0 5.25" Hub & Card Reader

Pros: Works fine in Widows 10. Four USB3 Ports into a single 20 pin cable and multi card reader. All USB3 ports worked with multiple things plugged in at once but I had to give this thing its own dedicated PSU SATA rail to do it. Otherwise a wireless mouse plugged into 1 of the USB3 ports would start to do stutter bad with other things plugged into other USB3 ports. That is normally the case though with any USB3 port card. They need lots of power if you plan on loading every port up at the same time. The blue light also works but only when a flash card is inserted for it to read.

Cons: The price of course. It ain't cheap.

Other Thoughts: It does what it says it does and has no equal that I could find on Newegg so the choice for me to buy it was pretty easy actually.

5 out of 5 eggs Simple and loaded with everything you need and nothing you don't. 03/16/2016

This review is from: MSI X99A SLI PLUS LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Orange is the new black and MSI is the new ASUS (as far as features and quality is concerned) without the ASUS cost and learning curve of it's mind numbing BIOS. It powered on out of the box.
It has a very simple BIOS that anyone can understand.
Loaded with USB3 ports.
M.2 card slot onboard.
Huge bang for the buck.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: MSI builds great value priced feature rich motherboards that work and keep on working year after year. I have a MSI Socket 775 motherboard from 5+ years ago and it still works like new. It's powered on 24 hours a day.......every day.

ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI EEB Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs This board works fine with minor annoyances 07/23/2012

This review is from: ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI EEB Intel Motherboard

Pros: 32 Glorious Cores. Small footprint compared to the SR-X. It booted fine the first time and the 21st time with 2 Xeon 2687W's and 64 GB RAM installed. This thing boots OSX Mountain Lion in less than 3 seconds on a SSD. I can't really complain about anything after I witnessed that, so I give it 5 stars. LOL

Cons: Fan headers on board have the voltage intentionally lowered making all fans extra quiet, even when set to high in the BIOS. Why? BIOS is mind numbing with tons of server board terms that make my brain ache.

Other Thoughts: ASUS needs to drop kick the Server BIOS and replace it with a UEFI BIOS like the P9X79 WS Revo's and let us control our own fan speeds from that BIOS.
