1 out of 5 eggs Poor quality drivers 06/05/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK TG-3468 Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45

Pros: Provides gigabit network connectivity

Cons: The driver has a severe resource and memory leak. After running with this card for a week, the Network Interface Store service was using 30,000 handles and using 1.8 GB of memory. As soon as I disabled the NIC, handles dropped to 460 and memory usage dropped to 99 MB. The other NIC on the motherboard was still enabled. The driver has not been updated for almost 3 years.

2 out of 5 eggs Activity LED problem with Seagate 10/23/2009

This review is from: BYTECC BT-135E-BK 3.5" SATA Aluminum Drive Case

Pros: All metal construction. Fan is part of the tray so you don't have to open the case if it fails.

Cons: Using Seagate drives, the activity LED stays on all the time. When there is activity, the LED gets a little bit brighter. It's hard to tell if there is activity or if the drive is constantly being accessed. With Western Digital drives, the LED goes out when there is no activity. Bytecc tech support is blaming the Seagate drive design, but I have no problem with the activity LED when Seagate drives are used in a backplane from a different manufacturer.

3 out of 5 eggs S# resume problem with unlocked Sempron 140 10/04/2009

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Built in HD video support, firewire. Was able to unlock second core of a Sempron 140 by setting EC Firmware Selection to Hybrid and Advanced Clock Calibration to Auto.

Cons: The motherboard would not resume Windows from S3 standby. Gigabyte tech support is abysmal. I submitted the problem to Gigabyte tech support. First they did not understand the problem. When I corrected them, they asked me questions that I had already answered in my initial request. They never seem to read any of the prior history of the issue, so you have to re-state everything each time, otherwise they will ask you a question that you have already answered and don't get around to actually addressing the issue. Finally, after ten days of back and forth, they suggested resetting the BIOS to default values. That disabled the second core of the Sempron 140, but then resuming from S3 standby now worked. In short, enabling Advanced Clock Calibration makes resuming from S3 standby stop working. Gigabyte's response was that enabling ACC is an overclocking function and they won't support it.
