ASUS F2A85-V PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Had it for 8 months with an AMD 10. All told this is the best computer I've ever owned.

Cons: When you set up an SSD it can be a bit tricky because the SSD does not show in the BIOS *unless* it is the ONLY hard drive in the system.

Other Thoughts: [update: I've been using these for three years, so far so good.]

I use it with Win 8.1 and I *like* win 8.1. I still have a desktop. Computer starts up from sleep mode in five seconds (really!) and boots to my desktop (which, even on a cold start, you get to win7 style desktop by clicking on one tile). instead of using the start tab lower left you hit window key and can start anything you want. Hit it again back to desktop. Anyyhow that has nothing to do wtih this system which is fast and wonderful. I am using it with 16 gigs but my second build, more economy minded, is 8 gigs RAM to start but it is nice to know I can add more when/if I want. For home entertainment system I have a video card on first build but for second build video card is unnecessary (graphics built into AMD 10).

Learning how to build my own computer really liberated me from the bad decisions and poor quality that go into standard offerings. Buy a gold rated power supply to go with this system.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Working so far. A good deal considering that for $150 three years ago you got 120 gigs, not 500.

Cons: Instructions say USB-SATA wire is included so you can use the included disk to make a clone. But the wire was not included. I ordered one and then remembered that I have an old copy of Acronis. It's a more complicated process with Acronis you have to hook up the extra drive and then boot on to the Acronis disk etc. PITA.

Other Thoughts: I hope it works. I don't have great faith in Samsung's qc/qa. Not when I see what they did to my Galaxy S5. And it isn't even the exploding type (like the Galaxy S7).

SanDisk 64GB Micro SDHC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model SDSDQUA-064G

5 out of 5 eggs Working for now 08/11/2016

This review is from: SanDisk 64GB Micro SDHC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model SDSDQUA-064G

Pros: It works

Cons: Who knows for how long?

Other Thoughts: Since I have a Samsung phone I bought a samsung SDHC and it lasted about six months. Now I have this. It is working, but the only time to review it really is two or three years from now. And I may ditch the phone before then, because, WARNING, if you buy a Samsung Galaxy S5 from Wally world to use with Smart talk you forfeit the right to use Samsung warranty services and will never ever ever get a system update. I'm about ready to defect to AT&T.
