Pros: Price, delivered in 2 days. Works in the Lenovo G510
Cons: Appearance maybe.
Other Thoughts: Bought new laptop, wanted 16g but did not want to spend time searching for a DIMM that was compatible with the machine or it's existing memory. The 'egg's memory finder steered me to this selection so I chose strictly on price. Corsair makes no mistake by trying to make this DIMM look like anything else. It let me know that I am frugal and labels the DIMMs with stickers that tell everyone that I am a cheapskate.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Pros: It's Windows 7.
Best MS operating system to date.
Cons: Activation key on COA sticker hard to read.
Other Thoughts: Installed on a new Gigabyte H81M-HD2 board with no hassles.
Only needed the Ethernet driver from the mobo CD. Everything else worked.
Pricey for an OS that is one version behind - but they know we want it and will pay for it.
Pros: Equipped well enough for the purpose
On board video with D-Sub.
Saved my bacon by working on old OS partition.
Ultra Durable features.
Hassle free fast Windows 7 install.
Cons: 4 SATA ports
No Windows XP support
Other Thoughts: Bought in a combination with i3 4130 CPU as a rushed replacement board in a Plex media server. Something killed my old MSI LGA775 board and power supply, so with this replacement simply swapped out it booted into Windows XP and was in limp-a-long mode while I sought out drivers for XP.
Really, my Plex server was again functional enough to operate under a swap & drop.
My search for XP compatible drivers came up short - never did find complete audio & video drivers so I could preview or watch content on the console. I later ended up buying a system builder copy of Windows 7 pro at Newegg. I had just 2 hours to install the OS and get the media machine back online and finished with time to spare.
Along with the copy of Win7 I also bought a Rosewill pcie SATA card to bring the port count back up to 6.
So I spent a bit more on a new OS and expansion card to replace was was essentially a spare parts computer I had been utilizing as a media vault. The hassle free install and newfound performance outweigh the minus'.
