AOC e1649Fwu Black 16
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price, size, portability are all upthere

Cons: Not an immediate plug and play, but Win 8.1 did find a driver.
Resolution just average.
Confusing install horserace between Win 8.1 pnp process and the supplied install instructions.
It matters WHICH usb port you use.

Other Thoughts: Really makes road trips with the laptop more productive.

2 out of 5 eggs Buy the new MOBD instead 01/12/2012

This review is from: SYBA Combo Ports USB 3.0 + SATA 6G PCI-e Card, Switchable SATA Port Model SY-PEX50043

Pros: Nice concept. Did run.

Cons: Poor execution. No where near SATA III speed. Actually ran slower than my native SATA II controller on the mobd, i.e. 2.11 Gbps v 2.57 Gbps. So why bother?
Additionally, as other reviewer noted, would not boot under Win7 64. Even after doing system repair and slipstreaming driver.

Other Thoughts: OCZ Solid 3 SSD, Win7 64 Pro, Biostar A800G+.

ASRock PV530 VIA PV530@1.8 GHz VIA NanoBGA2 VIA VX900 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great PRICE. GREAT BIOS. Lots of settings to play with... Good customer support. Almost no Noise. Fun board. Have it sitting on my desktop, mounted to a piece of Plexiglass. Use it to broadcast Music via Bluetooth, and webcruising. Works ok with Skype Audio. Whole thing draws about 40 watts.

Cons: 32 bit, single core, not a powerhouse. Constantly running at 30% CPU minimum. Would NOT work with PATRIOT DDR3 Signature RAM. Chokes on Skype video.

Other Thoughts: PICO 90W PSU, 4GB DDR3 Kingston KVR 1333D3N9/4G UBUNTU 11. V2.0 Bluetooth. I like the board. I assume for twice the cost an E350 would be better, but I am having fun. DOES work well under Win7. I just prefer Ubuntu for a low power unit.
