This review is from: Corsair CSSD-UPGRADEKIT SSD & HDD Cloning Kit
Pros: No AC Adapter required
Works great with 2.5 inch hdd (laptop harddrives)
small and lightweight
works with intel usb 3.0 chipsets (series 8 intel for me)
Other Thoughts: *used it to clone my 256gb ssd to 512gb ssd (samsung 840 pro's) and worked like a champ with acronis true image 2015
*ONLY WORKS WITH 2.5 inch DRIVES ALSO KNOWN AS LAPTOP HARDDRIVES. WILL NOT WORK WITH 3.5MM (DESKTOP) HARDDRIVES BECAUSE A USB PORT CANNOT PROVIDE ENOUGH POWER FOR IT.
*if you need one for a 3.5inch get a powered usb dock. thermaltake is good for that.
Pros: - Low budget board with lots features.
- runs stable if you get a good one
- 4 memory slots
Cons: first one the bios was messed up. would not hold date and time or any bios settings. had updated to latest bios. so had to rma it and get a new one in the mean time losing valuable time and money to a down computer. seems ASUS had dropped off their quality control. may be time to go with a different manufacturer.
Other Thoughts: I have been using asus for 15 years or so. seems they have been getting worse and worse. up until last few years i had only RMA'd one board in the last 2 years 6. that is not a good sign.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast i7, good ram, nice display
Cons: -keyboard layout is atrocious, the arrow keys under the 10-key, not home button. really weird.
-the sd card slot did not work
-the backlit keyboard had to be reactivated everytime you booted windows. it was a soft activation not hardware.
- the webcam was same as the keyboard, had to be reactivated each time the machine was rebooted.
-network card sucked. sporadically cut out.
Other Thoughts: overall, the laptop just sucked and would not recommend to anyone. who ever heard of making a webcam and a backlit keyboard having to be turned on with every reboot. and the sd card slot not working is really puzzling, that is the simplest thing to make work. i returned the laptop for refund. one and done on cyberpower for me.READ FULL REVIEW
