Pros: It worked for 2 years and 3 months
Cons: The warranty is 2 years
Other Thoughts: I have heard of cutting the bin sorting and MTBF down to the limit but this one came in on a razor. Controller started reporting block errors even thought SMART showed OK. Got just under a weeks warning before it finally crashed the controller driver even though it wasn't the boot drive. Oddest hard drive experience.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 8 core processing with apps that can do it. Stable and durable. Other than stock cooling, no issues. High value CPU.
Cons: Not all cores are active at all times. OEM heat sink doesn't cut it. You will have to replace it asap. AMD assumed you wouldn't use all the cores at the same time. The high cores will go to sleep very quickly to save power & heat.
Other Thoughts: The first app I ran that could use all 8 cores caused the CPU to overheat and do a thermal reboot. After replacing the stock cooler, temps dropped and using all 8 cores is no longer an issue. Since then, no issues after a couple of years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: No issues. Fit like a champ. I wasn't looking for ultimate speed with this, just that it worked with a PCIe 1X mSATA adapter I used.
Cons: None of consequence.
Other Thoughts: Used on a PCIe 1x Asmedia based mSATA adapter. Bus limited the performance, but I didn't care as it was faster than a hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
