Pros: Exactly what it claims to be... mounted right into one of my extra optical drive slots with standard hardware, then hooked up to my new motherboard with a standard cable.

Cons: Lots of blank space on the panel, I guess? I think they should make another model with 4 ports and 2 cables, there's plenty of room, and lots of motherboards support multiple 3.0 front-panel ports.

Other Thoughts: This was a nice cheap way to modernize my old first-run Antec 900. Front-panel USB 3.0 makes for very convenient thumbstick usage.

Pros: Enough power for any APU system, unless you want to add a crossfired video card.

Reliable in my experience. I've used four of them so far, one of which has been running around two years with no problems so far.

Fan noise is less than AMD's stock APU cooling fan, so it's not noticeable in any of my builds.

Low price, helps keep my HTPC builds under $400... in some cases, under $300.

Cons: None that I've experienced.

Other Thoughts: Some might list this as a con, others as a pro... but it doesn't come with a power cord. Great for me, as I've been building PCs since the mid 90s... I have a footlocker full of the things. Just be aware if you're a first-time system builder.

5 out of 5 eggs great for budget builds, always leaves expansion as an option 02/17/2014

This review is from: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLT4G3D1869DT1TX0

Pros: Good latency for an 1866 stick

4GB is exactly the right amount of RAM for a little HTPC right now

Using a single stick makes upgrading later a breeze.

Cons: Using a single stick means you're unable to fully utilize a motherboard with dual-channel RAM slots.

Other Thoughts: I've put one of these into three sub-$400 A4 APU systems now. All of them more than meet the requirements of the people who use them. This chip admirably performs the double-duty of RAM and VRAM required for low-end APU desktops.
