Pros: Was looking to upgrade my mb on my FX 8350 to run crossfire. Motherboard has all the features I was looking for and bought it on sale with a rebate. Great board for AM3+ upgrade with 4 ddr slots, USB 3.1, 3xPCIe, 6 SATA, supports FX8000 and FX9000 series processors
Cons: Never received the rebate. Status showed it was processed and I would receive by July 3rd.
Other Thoughts: To be fair, I have bought many MSI products with rebates and MSI has always come through and honored the rebate. Don't know why MSI would chance losing a long time customer over a $20 rebate on a high end $150 motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast Micro SD compatible with all my mobile devices. I was looking for a Micro SD card that would work well with my Microsoft Windows 10 phone. I, like many others, have had problems with numerous Micro SD card in the Windows 10 phone. It is a known issue and the insider forum is filled with users reporting problems with the SD card in Windows 10.
This Micro SD has been installed in my Windows 10 phone for several weeks with no problems. The four previous SD cards I installed all started getting messages from Windows 10 mobile that there was errors on the SD card and in two cases, the SD card stopped working. I have not had a single issue so far with the SD card and Windows 10 phone.
A lot of reviewers have commented on speed. Although I did not run any benchmarks, this card appears to perform equal to or faster than other SD cards I have owned. I backed up all my photos and documents from my phone using a USB 3.0 adapter and the SD performed as well or better than a USB 3.0 drive.
Tested this SD card in another phone and two tablets. The camera is snappy on the phone with this SD and there is no hesitation or pause when saving the pictures. When using the file browser on the phone with this SD, browsing files and folders is quick with no hesitation or stuttering.
Other Thoughts: So far this card surpassed my expectations. I have also replaced a SSD with a Silicon Power SSD and the SSD is fast with no issues since being installed. Several past purchases of Silicon Power products with no issues and good performance. This is definitely a brand to consider.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked out of box for Windows 10 Professional. I have several wireless adapters that Windows 10 seems to have a problem with. Plugged it in and Windows 10 installed driver. Wireless was up and running in less than a minute. Running for over a month now without any issues. Wireless speed seems decent and haven't had any disconnects.
Very small, does not take up any room around the USB port. Good signal - get full signal in any room in the house.
Cons: Range is somewhat limited - expected considering most Nano adapters don't have very good range.
Other Thoughts: My other wireless adapter was able to pick up several WiFi points in around my neighborhood. This adapter only sees my router even though my other adapters see several of the neighbors. Not a big concern considering that anywhere in my house, I do get a full signal with this adapter. Works well with Windows 10. For the price and Windows 10 compatibility, you can't go wrong. It will do the job.READ FULL REVIEW
