Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Dead after a couple years 12/17/2013

This review is from: Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: The drive just stopped working. Kept on giving errors and now the thing doesn't show up at all on any of my computers.

Other Thoughts: I thought the SSD were supposed to last. But just like anything else these days, it doesn't.

PowerColor PCS+ AX7970 3GBD5-2DHPPV Radeon HD 7970 VORTEXII 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I'm sure there are plenty if PowerColor actually tested the card with several mother board types.

Cons: Follw up review-
Got my RMA replacement and it did the same thing the last non-functioning card did. My Motherboard showed the same “62” error. This happened with my z68 mother board so I decided to purchase a z77 motherboard (both ASRock). The video card didn’t work with the z77 board as well.

It appears that PowerColor didn’t test this card with any mother board that has a UEFI Bios. This card will not work with any current ASRock motherboard and perhaps any other motherboard that has a UEFI BIOS. I cannot believe that PowerColor would release a card, out the public, knowing well that the card will not work with certain popular motherboard types. Either that or they didn’t test with those types of mother boards. Whatever the case may be I’ve never in my life had a more frustrating Video card Purchase than I’ve had with this video card.

If you don’t have a ASRock motherboard with a UEFI BIOS then this card should be OK. If you do? Then this card will probably not work.

Other Thoughts: I worked with someone from their support line. They were very helpful. The issue still didn't get resolved. PowerColor needs to come clean and admit that they released a video card that doesn't work with popular current motherboard types. What they need to do is buy a ASRock motherboard with a UEFI bios and test it. After than update the video cards Flash Memory, and offer fixes for folks who had problems, if they didn't already return it.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None

Cons: Fans spin but no picture. Almost 1/3 of the reviews here are about units that are Dead on Arrival. I read the reviews and took a chance anyway. I should have known better. My unit is also Nonoperational.

I have a Corsair GS800 power supply (no other external peripheral devices other than a keyboard and a mouse), hooked up both 8 pin power connectors. Reseated the card, tried it again, Still nothing.

Other Thoughts: If you read the reviews, and 1/3 of the reviews are people who received a unit that didn't work. Don't be a dummy like me and buy one anyway. Stay away from this unit. I want my money back, I don't even trust the manufacturer at this point to even send a working unit. How can they accept such a failure rate? I'm extremely disappointed and will never purchase a product from that brand again.
