Pros: Absolutely none, it never worked
Cons: - Could not change password
- could not connect to any of the 3 networks I tried (2 secured, 1 open)
- the famous "unable to..." message shows at almost every step
Other Thoughts: I bought this at $20.
Every time you see these 50% off deals you know something is up. The quality control is atrocious. Whenever you see the problem being software/firmware related it is a clear sign that basic quality checks are simply not in place.
Don't bother replying to this review, I have no interest in RMAing a $20 purchase or even trying another product by this company.
Pros: - Great price point
- Easy setup
- Great BIOS
- Very fast BIOS boot
- All sata 3 ports, loaded with features
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I am quite satisfied with this board, this is no doubt a quality product.
Everything was setup in no time. I have 2 ssds and 1 regular drive. Once AHCI was enabled got all SSDs at their reported max read speed. Everything runs stable, not a single BSOD, random restart or instability whatsoever.
This is my 1st ASrock product and I have to say that so far, I am thoroughly impressed particularly when you factor in the competitive pricing.
Pros: - The advertised read speeds are real
- BIOS picked it up immediately, AHCI config was a breeze
Cons: - None, not even the write speed
Other Thoughts: First of all, let me say I'm used to SSD. I work with a T5500 Dell packing 2 Intel 6-cores processors and 2 SSD's. I use it for simulations where fast data acess/write is crucial and often the bottleneck. Needless to say, SSD make a huge difference and we are always looking for the fastest SSD possible.
So when I saw this crucial going for $99 I just had to give it a shot and it delivers. I got 1 for my personal computer, getting read speeds around 347mb/s and my "eye" bench test tells me this would go well against most if not all the SSD I ever used. Sure, writing stuff is slower but for a personal pc I just don't see that much difference. At work I'm sure we would drop this, but at home where opening browser, apps, games etc is the norm this thing is just as fast as anything I ever saw at 5x the price.
For $99 this was a steal.
