Pros: Fast, cool, I like Corsair products generally
Cons: This drive was for my "travel laptop" (old Dell Centrino) and barely gets used. I'm in Boston on business, it worked in the morning, but when I booted at the airport later that day - Dead. Bummed because I wanted to watch a movie.
Other Thoughts: I like Corsair, I got a bad drive, it happens. Fortunately it was a clone of my old drive so once I got home I swapped back & was working immediately (well, back in the closet for this laptop anyways..)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel NUC Kit DCCP847DYE Intel QS77 2 x 204Pin Celeron 847 1.1GHz
Pros: Bought is for a small footprint FreePBX server, loaded perfect, Nic supported, absolutely NO gotchas
Really fast for a PBX, I bought it because it's 100% INTEL
Cons: Wish it had 2 NICs for Untangle, it would be nice if they made 1 of these with an internal power supply, no audio out, 3 USB isn't much for a desktop PC.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 870S-G54 AM3 AMD 870 6 x SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Fired right up with AMD 6 core phenom & 16 Gig of Mushkin (4Gb x4, P#996776)
Real com port (I'm a Cisco guy, so very useful to me)
Lots of USB2 ports & headers
Cons: No USB 3.0? I should have kept looking.
Did it really need all the blue LED's on the board?
Other Thoughts: I know there are no USB 3.0 devices, but I usually only rebuild every 3-4 years, so I try to get all the latest, I missed the USB spec.
If you don't care about that, It's a good board.
Thankfully I can turn off the Blue LED's in the BIOS, lit up the whole house.
