This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Install and data transfer was a snap. Included Magician software allowed me to migrate OS and all HDD contents to SSD in a few minutes. Running great so far. Fast!
Cons: No cables or mounting brackets included.
Other Thoughts: Time will tell, but so far have to say this is a great drive. If you pick it up and don't have mounting brackets and an extra cable, you will need to pick them up. Luckily I had them so it wasn't a problem for me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked for a month or two.
Cons: Lots of random BSOD's and freezes.
Other Thoughts: Like many others, I have had loads of random BSOD's and freezes with this board. Went through a full battery of tests on other hardware, tried different BIOS settings, tried completely fresh install of win 7, got a new power supply, flashed the bios, still crashing. Ran fine for a few months then all the problems started.
At this point I am thinking the culprit must be a bad mobo. Worst experience I have had in 10 plus years of building my own systems.
Unfortunately problems only started after 30 day return policy.
Weird, I am a big Asus fan, but this design is a real lemon.
Pros: This thing powered my gaming computer from 2008 to today. Heavy CPU overclocking, dual hard drives, 4 case fans, etc. etc.
I think it is finally on its way out. Starting to get random, albeit rare, system freezes. But I have to agree with the other guy who said this was the best hundred bucks he ever spent.
Cons: Didn't balance the federal budget or secure peace in the middle east for all time.READ FULL REVIEW
