Pros: Rock solid SSD after being put through the ringer with cheap Adata SSD!
Other Thoughts: Partitioned it in two and use it for (8GB) ZIL and L2ARC (40GB) on a zpool.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: New board has been rock solid, no complaints.
Cons: none now.
Other Thoughts: This is an update to my original review about NewEggs RMA handling.
Someone decided after I spoke with them to refund me after all!
Thank you NewEgg for the right thing.
Lesson learned: Ensure you ship the product back in the EXACT SAME box it came in, check the serial numbers on the box itself!
Cons: The motherboard was flaky and was causing random reboots/power offs.
I spent a considerable amount of time and patience troubleshooting PSU, RAM, and every other component; until finally it was down to CPU, a single DIMM and the Mobo which would reboot while just sitting in the BIOS config screen.
I ended up ordering a second one and this one is working as intended and deployed.
The low one egg is mostly for how Newegg is (mis)handling the RMA request.
Other Thoughts: Now the kicker is that Newegg, who to be fair has never given me an issue with any RMA in the past, is refusing to process the RMA because I apparently returned it in the wrong box (the box of the working mobo). Because of this they are refusing me a $380 refund and expect me to get a return from Supermicro instead, since I no longer have the box.
WOW NewEgg, really? Because the sticker on the box doesn't match?!
Well since the usual easy RMA policies have changed, I guess I'll have to consider other more cost effective online resellers for future purchases.
