This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio 640GB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive E05A064CAU2CK Black
Pros: shipped from NJ to PA
Cons: I fell for yet ANOTHER sale from the egg. When it comes to having your data for a long time, NEVER buy a HDD from the egg unless it is a retail version. Totally sick of their sales.
I would spend extra money for a good HDD. Toshiba? I can't even begin to tell you how bad that is.
Other Thoughts: Quick format.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: JetWay JHA07-ULTRA-LF AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Affordability, OC options in the BIOS
Cons: Too many. I bought the HA06-GT. Thought I'd give it a ride. Had a an AMD 7750. Upgraded to a Propus. No problem, it booted, but again, "unknown processor" in Windows and CPU-Z. That was with the latest BIOS update.
Now I don't know about you, but their support site said I installed BIOS wrong. The minute I entered and typed all the command line parameters ( p/n/del/a blah blah blah) verbatim FROM A FLOPPY, the BIOS got scrambled.
Do you think they would have a bootable ISO to CD??
Do you think they support CPU's made months ago?
Do you think they would have clear instructions?
Filled out some Excel type spreadsheet for the RMA. I have to ship it to them, pay $10 (for what?) and return shipping. I will have spent almost half what I paid.
If you like command line parameters from floppy's, filling out spreadsheets, AND having to pay for your RMA, then
just then, maybe a Jetway is right for you.
Other Thoughts: Gonna stick with the name brands from now on. Sorry Jetway, lump ECS in there too.
The whole AMD value thing is lost when mobo mfg's all thumb their noses at new processor support.
From now on, I am going to look at who updates their BIOS the most, and easiest.
