MSI K8NGM2-L 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Still running, 24/7 03/07/2015

This review is from: MSI K8NGM2-L 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Thing just keeps running and running....

Cons: Thing just keeps running and running.... Can't justify upgrading until it dies.

Other Thoughts: Built this years back as my primary desktop, then relinquished it as a Windows Home Server when I upgraded. That was back in 2008. This thing has been running 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, for the past 7 years, without a hitch. I'll eventually build a WHS 2011 machine with newer parts, but until that day comes, this will keep serving its purpose.

While this review really isn't pertinent any more, I just had to brag.

2 out of 5 eggs Waste of time & money 08/22/2014

This review is from: ECS KBN-I/2100 AMD E1-2100 Dual Core processor Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

Pros: fanless
small profile

Cons: Network adapter shuts off too early to use outside of OS
Slower than expected

Other Thoughts: Have built several systems, so I know my way around. Build this to use on the living room entertainment system, but utilize my SiliconeDust HDHomerun Prime tuner. Didn`t expect a high end gaming system, but did expect something that would run as a HTPC for a basic setup. Had a hard time steaming videos over the network and was slow as hell to load programs. Figured I`d try to help it by upgrading the HD from the standard 250gb HD to an SSD drive. That`s where the poor design really falls flat. While trying to reinstall the system onto the new SSD from my home server, I discovered that the Realtek drivers don`t function properly, requiring you to DL the drivers from Realtek and load them on a thumb drive. But don`t bother, because the ethernet jack shuts down after a couple minutes, while the WHS Restore software is installing. No ethernet, no finding the server, no restore. Going to have to order a USB/ethernet adapter to even get it up running. Too much work for too little reward. Going to keep an eye out for an alternative setup.

Manufacturer Recertified Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F120GB3/RF2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Arrived fairly quick.

Cons: DOA. Guess whatever savings I expected going with a refurb will be eaten up by shipping.

Other Thoughts: Installed in an ECS KBN-I/2100 motherboard as a replacement for a standard disk drive. Does not recognize the drive. Even when connected as a slave drive, it does not show up under "Disk Management".

All the reviews since April are DOA. Has ANYONE received a working drive since then?
