Pros: The board runs nice, very spacious and has 3 or 4 system fan slots from what I had seen, which was more than I needed.
Cons: The RAM slots... Hot dang, the RAM slots.....
Who ever runs the show for quality control over at MSI really needs to get his/her stuff together. The first board I had before I had to RMA it had 3 slots dead; 2 on the first quad channel, and 1 on the second (that I knew of, I gave up looking for the rest after that). So I RMA'd the board which took about a week and a half by truck.... to California.... from New Hampshire.....
After I got my second board about 2 weeks later (today lol), I still found one dead slot on the second quad channel, thank goodness the first (and recommended) quad channel had nothing wrong with them as of yet (crossing my fingers).
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a board to use the 2011-v3 socket and only have dual channel RAM, then power to you because its a sturdy board otherwise. However, if you're looking to make this into the ultimate gaming computer and are going to put 8 sticks of RAM into it... Well... GOOD LUCK! lol
Its a shame that the board has such poor quality control as this board would have far more higher ratings if it did, but so is the cost of doing business... I think I am being merciful giving this board 2 eggs instead of one, as this thing has caused me alot of headaches.
This review is from: SAMSUNG 250GB Portable USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1
Pros: - It doesnt weight hardly anything
- And works as expected...almost (Read Cons)
-Safe if dropped (I wouldnt test it) due to no moving parts
Cons: If you have a Samsung Internal SSD set as the OS Disk, then stay away from this one.
Because I have just that, I cannot use this in USB 3.0 and if I keep it plugged in to the USB 2.0 after shutting it off, when I turn on my computer back on, it mistakes the T1 External SSD as my OS Disk and refuses to boot until I unplug it and try again.
The Speed and safety of an SSD External HDD are what led me to pay a little extra for this drive. It sucks that I cant use it as advertised because of a mistake on Samsung's end.
Other Thoughts: The hard drive is solid, and its small and light weight. It has the potential to be a great external hard drive, they just need to weed out the severe problems (like this) before its too late.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -The keyboard is solid. Its not made of steel but for plastic, it can take a beating.
-I see people worrying about the feet of keyboards alot, so ill put this oen to rest. The feet on this keyboard are exactly identical to those on the back of School keyboards (Dell/Gateway Based Computers),
Which means they are solid too, but i wouldnt be slamming the keyboard down hard any time soon.
-LED options are great, Blue is better for low to med light operation, while red is great for dark lighting (my opinion)
Cons: -Will say that you cannot see the keys even in a well lit room very easily if you have the LEDs shut off, but i don't plan on turning them off anyhow.
Other Thoughts: I love the keyboard so far, considering what i paid for it ($38) BUT IF you have the money for a better and more reknowned keyboard, i'd buy that instead.
Overall, not a bad keyboard but its not perfect. So far i live it!
