This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Used it in a clean install and everything went pretty smooth, it even flashed the bios before I installed my OS, pretty awesome! I could not get the eSATA port to be recognized by Windows (I was not using the shared SATA port onboard) so I mailed AsRock customer support and they pointed me to the correct driver on there website (I missed it the first time around). That may not sound like much, but it's more than I've got out of other brands customer service departments.
Cons: So, this is not really a Con but if I have to write something here... The included drivers only support up to Windows 7 and I was installing Windows 8 so I had to go out the website and download them and you have to download and install them one by one, they don't have a similar "package" like they do for Windows 7 that installs everything. Not really a con, more me being lazy.
Other Thoughts: This is my second AsRock board, the first board was a funky one that accepted multiple CPU and RAM types so you could upgrade only parts of your system at a time, it was just OK but did the job. This is a first class board and is much better than my first one and is on par with or above all the major manufacturers...READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: Please see 'Other Thoughts'
Other Thoughts: I already reviewed this drive once and it is great. I wanted to respond to the reviewer that said this drive does not work with Windows 8. I currently have 3 computers running Windows 8 on this drive and didn't do anything more than feed the supplied disk for the drivers. Perhaps he/she got a bad disk?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought 1 HyperX SSD a couple of months ago and have since bought 3 more, that really says it all.
Windows 8 boots in 19 seconds from the time I press my power button, so that 19 seconds includes my BIOS POST screen too!
Cons: It does not make me breakfast.
Other Thoughts: Kingston has had it's up and downs over the last 15 years or so, but they hit this one out of the park!READ FULL REVIEW
