Pros: The combination of features and quality make this a steal. I was looking for a few things in a board that weren't as common (msata slot, plenty of USB 3.0 and more than 2 sata3 ports,) and this board has it all. I love this motherboard. Also has plenty of fan headers - something commonly lacking. Love the new bios.
Cons: Complete lack of Linux drivers from Gigabyte. Everything is Windows (but it all still works fine in Mint 15, just with their drivers)
some very small things could be improved, like the msata is only sata2. Not sure if it's making any difference at all, to be honest.
This review is from: Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD3 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Fastest drive I've ever seen, and mSata means I can keep using the 1tb platter drive for storage on my laptop. Absolutely love this drive
Cons: None. Would love for it to be cheaper, but that's true of everything.
Other Thoughts: It amazes me that there aren't more high end laptops with quality spacious SSD's like this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: memorex 8.5GB 8X DVD+R DL 50 Packs Spindle Disc Model 05732
Pros: Burned 6 disks so far. 5 successful at 4X. Tried to go up to 8X, no dice. With this price, as long as they are reliable at 4X I am thrilled.
Cons: Rated 8x. Can't give it 5 stars, even at this great price, when it can't burn at its rated speed.
Other Thoughts: I never touched a DL disk other than Verbatim the last few years. After some people complained that they changed manufacturing sites, and the quality had dropped, I was motivated to try another brand. Glad I did. I don't know the truth about Verbatim manufacturing (from Singapore to Indiia), but if these are reliable at 4x, I have found another DL source.READ FULL REVIEW
