This review is from: 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 5300U DDR2-667 MHZ 240 Pin DIMM Memory RAM For AMD PC Desktop
Pros: none yet
Cons: I bought this memory on newegg.com on the 6th of November and received a confirmation email the next day saying that there was a tracking number but there wasn't. I then waited until the 12th of November and still didn't have a tracking number so I emailed the seller. They replied on the 13th saying that the package was accepted by the USPS in China on the 12th. So, either they waited for me to email them and complain before they put the package in the mail or it takes 6 days for them to initialize shipment. Either way, I feel the delay is completely unacceptable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The machine runs stable and the case is sturdy. It has a nice look to it. Overall it's an easy build if you are used to building PCs.
Cons: Installed 4 Gb of memory which the specs say is max ..the machine recognizes 4 gb installed but on windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit it says only 3 Gb are usable.
I posed a question to newegg asking if this was a 64 bit processor and was told it is but there are no drivers that I could find anywhere for the chipset to support 64 bit. Had 64 bit Win 7 installed but had to downgrade to 32 bit Win 7 to make everything work.
The added software that comes on the driver CD is of no use to anyone I know.
Don't even think about using the included software to update the bios..I did and the machine wouldn't boot. I ended up having to make a bootable flash drive and roll back the bios to an earlier version to make it boot again. The version I used is on their site currently.
Other Thoughts: Besides the issues I mentioned, the machine seems to be running well and is fast enough for what it is. It operates with very little noise and runs cool. The SSD I put in it costs more than the whole barbones unit but makes it faster. I built this machine for a customer because I have built other foxconn systems and they standup to use for a long time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: none yet
Cons: They included a 220V power adapter instead of a 110V adapter so I can't use it in the United States without another adapter of some sort. I am very impatient so now I am wanting to kick my own rear end for not reading the reviews first. Let's hope their support is top notch. I will be more cautious when ordering in the future...READ FULL REVIEW
