Pros: It works with the usual crucial reliability.
Cons: The memory I received had twice as many DRAM chips as shown in the picture. That is, it was the same number, CT2KIT25664BF160B, but had 8 chips on a side instead of 4. I did not like this deception so I took off a star.! (too many solder joints for the size)
Other Thoughts: I ordered this because of low price and a previous review that the 1600 worked fine at 1333. The Asrock Mini ITX motherboard Q1900-ITX works ONLY with 1333 according to their specs, but this 1600 memory also works fine and was considerably cheaper than the 1333. This 1600 memory will also work fine with the Asrock Mini-ITX QC5000-ITX/PHREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Brighter than expected, steady, very efficient and runs cool on the globe. Does not fluctuate at all. Maybe some users had bad wiring or something wrong with their eye sight. After a couple of hours of being on, you can remove the bulb without waiting for it to cool. True INSTANT on. 100 lumens per watt in now the new norm.
Cons: Only the screw end base gets a little hot.
Other Thoughts: I'm looking forward to the newer LEDs with even more lumens and with the same style. I would like to see a 4000k half way between yellow and blue tint.. These are a super bargain when on sale.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Q1900-ITX Intel Celeron J1900 Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
Pros: The people giving this MB only one egg, because of failed boot, probably did not read the specs on the Intel J1900 uP. The specs call for DDR3L-1333 memory. 1067 memory will not work.(I tried it too.) Use Crucial CT2KIT25664BF1339 or similar memory. Boot time, with Win8, is 18 seconds, start button to final screen...and that is not the fastest boot setting.!
Cons: The only drawback I see in this MB is that it does not run WinXP. When you try to load XP, you get the BSOD because one ACPI file is missing. I tried several versions of XP, but none worked for me. However, FAST and SUPER FAST boot will not work with XP. Works only with Win 8 or 8.1. So it is a trade off. If you want fast boot you have to use Win8 with its "Labyrinth Menus". But what do you expect from the so-called "criminal M$ gang".?
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am pleased with this MB so I gave it 5 stars. However, I hope to try Win9 for an improvement. You will have to enjoy the simplicity of XP on another machine....READ FULL REVIEW
